As an aside, back when i used to play the FIFA Manager series (when it was called TCM), we were able to create leagues and cups in the editor (we had to use one of several league templates, but the cups were fully customisable if you knew how to write the script).

Maybe one day FM will give us the option of making some crude leagues without having to trick the game and sacrifice an existing league.

Chas (Psyatika)
05-11-2007, 12:49
Alright, sorry, triple post.

TCM also had every country's data in a separate data file within the database folder, so it was much easier to import downloaded leagues without ruining your custom database. FM doesn't have this structure, so i suppose it would be difficult until they change their database structure (which would be for the better, by the way!).

I am sure you wouldn't think this way if your favorite league wasn't in the game already.

What about someone in Morocco who bought FM but can't manage his own local team?

The Hungarian league was not always present in CM/FM (don't remember the exact year when it was added), and I was not happy about it when I was not able to manage Hungarian teams.

Even though I probably would never manage teams from all nations, but still sometimes I like to load all nations and have a career game where I spend 1-2 years then I go on to another team in another country.

Would love to see the number of African leagues expanded beyond just S.Africa. I often play games with a "regional" setting ie UK, Scandinavian or Southern Europe. I've never been tempted to start a game in S.Africa because thats the only playable league in the game.

Highland League would be cool as well!

I agree it would cost too much to research all teams from all nations and I don't think there will ever be an FM version where all leagues would be available.

This is why:

- adding the possibility to add leagues with the editor
- adding the possibility to manage clubs from other nations, even with grey players

could offer some workaround for those who can't find their favourite league in the game.

Rocketpants
05-11-2007, 13:10
Peter Cseke - fair point, but by having a league in Morocco, will the time and effort in preparing this league, researching this league, establishing the leagues rules be time well spent, compared to improving the game overall, instead of a poor mans version of a data update each year!

The scottish Juniour leagues woudl be good. Yes I know no promotion to the SFL but still would be a good challenge as now the 3 superleague winners and cup winners in the juniour get into the Scottish cup. Lucky Girvan get in it every year as they are full SFA members. Would eb good though and in fairness the top juniour teams are a match for 3rd div teams at least.

I would say though for other countries:
Egypt
Tunisia
Morroco
Cyprus
Nigeria

England has more than its fair share of teams unfortunatly leaves the games too unbalanced at times with their being so many english players in the db. Let other nations catch up first then fair enough look at England again though try and keep the game balanced.

Not that my current PC can cope with it but one can always dream.

I would love to have:
3rd tier Argentia
2nd tier Wales
Proper representation of football on State level in Brazil (Including different levels at State level and proper qualifications for the Série C)
3rd tier Greece
3rd tier Czech Republic
Fully playable CFA in France

And if I may drift away for another dream:
First two tiers Paraguay
First tier Marocco
First tier Egypt
3rd tier China
3rd tier Romania
3rd tier Croatia
3rd tier Finland
3rd tier Iceland
First tier Bolivia

Yeah, I know, pretty unrealistic to expect something like that to be added to FM in the near Future. But as I said, one can always dream and with a bit of luck by the time I buy my new PC SI have added a few of the listed ones here.

It would take perhaps 20-30 hours to (at least crudely) develop a new league in the game.

Assuming 8 hour workdays, 16 workdays per month (that's about 4 days per week), there are 576 hours of labour available for each SI employee (assuming each employee gets three months of not working on the game due to vacation, databases locked for disc production, etc).

I think at least a couple new leagues each year isn't too much to ask. Once the work is done, it'll be there forever since the structure of the game doesn't change drastically from year to year.

Have all the South American leagues. That way, you can play a full Copa Libertadores and others. There are only ten nations and FM08 already has 6, so adding 4 more to make it real would be good.

Aside from that, the NCAA would be great.

I think you've hit the nail on the head there mate. Those leagues would definately give a better balance to the FM 'World', where we're certainly lacking in Africa and the strong Asian leagues.

I think Europe is more than well represented with it's various leagues across the continent and the leagues you mention are exactly what I think should be added.

Thank you Colorado (maybe SI will call me now to work for their marketing side http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif)
But I think there should be also the 2nd division for the leagues that have only a division in the game. You only can choose a couple of team anf if you get relegated you just have to resign.. and if you are sacked you don't have a great change to get another team (See Australia or India)

I think we need the ability to makes leagues in the editor for certain countries i may be wrong but if teams from un playable leagues qualify for the Champions League qualifiers then why can't there be a create function in the editor to make league for these countries?

I would like to see more African league and more South American, Japan aswell as more lower league teams in Spain and Italy.

You know the major problems with these new leagues being implemented will be research. If you think you can help why not email SI and find out if you can help in any way! I'd like to see more in Africa, Europe, Asia, South America and the Middle East. Thing is I know nothing about these places! http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_redface.gif

I am *sure* if SI could get the researchers for some of these leagues they could be implemented? An example of this would be non league in England. They need researchers all across the lower pyramid and there is a person to contact who are interested in helping with the research.

I would suggest those wanting a league such as Boznia and who have good knowledge of the league post in the Data forum to see if SI are interested. Just an idea guys! http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

To an extent I would agree that having NCAA teams (outside of the ones that compete in professional leagues BYU does i think for instance) but the fact that the license would probably be very expensive and you couldn't even use the real names of players on the teams (because they are amateurs), I feel like it would feel like it was lacking depth (Though i would like to take over a university team several years in the future when it's full of regens). Also i imagine it would be difficult to implement an entirely new league structure where you have to lose certain people every year to the MLS superdraft. still i'd like to see it.

The J-League is a given, we'd all love that one back in. Plus i wouldn't mind the NZ league in the game, i'm tired of their national team being far too easy to beat with the Aussie team, in real life we can only thrash them 4-nil, not 12-nil like you can do by 2015. Wales deserves a 2nd division, also, I think some more smaller european nations would be good.

As said by me a number of times, the only one I really want is the U.A.E League. Hell, with Cocu and B. Kalou going over, it's defo. getting bigger.

Me and the 'bro made a crude re-make with the Editor over the Malaysian League. (On 07). I don't think i've ever enjoyed a league more.

And why we need more english leagues. we have more than enough tiers in england.. there are quality leagues missing in the list, so... first of all i´m agree that mission N1 must be to add the second league of these countries, in which we can play only the first division. and after that some quality leagues.. the south american 4 missing leagues are the most quality missing leagues for surehttp://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Let's see....

If I'm being optimistic, I'd like all the European and South American leagues in. The two biggest continents on footballing terms would be great if fully represented.

Idealism aside, however, I'd swing for the following:

A number of lesser leagues including Cyprus, Malta and the Faroe Islands, to provide a fun counterpoint to the major leagues.

English expansion down a further two levels. One would be good, but two would be excellent and the two new levels together would introduce some fun concepts to play with, particularly with the general lack of contracted players and need for local talent.

Africa's biggest and best leagues. Having only one African nation in the game makes it less interesting as a proposition. Expanding it to include Egypt, Ghana, Libya, Tunisia etc is an important step.

Asia's quite good at the moment in the Far East and South East regions, but the middle east is virtually unrepresented. If we're to look at the top 14 nations according to the AFC, the East region in FM has Australia, China, Indonesia and South Korea (four of the seven, with Japan only absent due to licensing and one I'd love to see return) whilst the Central & West section ha only one - Saudi Arabia. Iran and Qatar would be good additions.

North America needs to see more depth in the US, even though it's not a true pyramid as most leagues have. The USL - both divisions - would be a lovely step and a nice place for anyone trying a US career to start, with the goal of landing an MLS job rather than getting one off the bat.

A few other leagues would be good to keep the competitive level of the continental competitions up - Costa Rica is a given, with Honduras, Trinidad & Tobago, Haiti and Jamaica good shouts.

That leaves us with Oceania. The New Zealand league would bring a bit of life to the now-dead confederation. Perhaps Fiji and Vanuatu would be next to consider.


Of course, all this is entirely subject to research, which is the main stumbling block when it comes to adding new leagues.

- I really hope for African leagues, but I know it's hard to research. The continent is way under-represented.
- Also Saudi and Iranian league

A friend in Australia told me that the only team of note in New Zealand, play in the A-League (genius how they do it isn't it, take the first letter of your country's name and add it in front of league )

The NZ team in the A-League is sponsered by the Football Federation of Australia in an attempt to build the game over there. I'm actually against them playing in our comp and would love to see the money spent on building up thier own league (same for everyother damn comp for every other damn sport we've got they have to be in). NZ do actually have a league, teams like Team Wellington and Auckland City aren't that bad, they win the Oceanic Club Championship (not really an acomplishment though!).

With the naming the brain squad at the old FFA decided to just mimic all the other Asian nations in their naming schemes (Japan=J-League, Korea=K-League etc) I can't stand it personally. But the term Australian Football League is taken by another crappy sport played over here.

fwiw here's my view:-

English lower levels (Unibond, Ryman & BGB Southern all divisions)
Welsh Second Division (level below the Premier)
Scottish Highland, East of Scotland and South of Scotland Leagues
Add the rest of the missing European & South American Leagues (Paraguay, Bosnia & Faroes etc)
Nigeria
Cameroon
Egypt
Algeria
Ghana
Morocco
Saudi Arabia
Japan (If SI can get the license back!)
Thailand
UAE
New Zealand (As there are currently no leagues for Oceania)

I can fully understand that research may be difficult for some of the lower leagues but then most people sell those players on any way so maybe fill the lower league sides with regens and randomized players.

in previous FM games they actually have the jamaican sides with a couple of the actual players. infact i even remember seeing "Jamaican Premier League" as the competition they competed in before the years in the game started, when it then went to blank because you cant load the jamaican league.

to be honest i would play the jamaican league because i am from there. playing as harbour view against vivoli gardens and battling it out at the top with wadadah and boys town would be awesome http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

It's been mentioned before, and I know the chances of it happening are very slim due to mainly research issues, but I would love more African leagues.

There is so much talent in Africa and only having one league in the whole continent really sucks, but the amount of leagues already present in FM is much better then any other game in it's genre, and that's great.

If we could see the leagues of Ghana, Egypt, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, and Cameroon, to name a few, it would be just incredible.

Could you imagine managing in Sierra Leone? Now that would be a challenge.

I hope we do see more African leagues added in future FM releases.

I think it's time to make a bigger push for African research. It will be difficult but I am imagining that there are a sufficient number of football/FM fans to make the research possible for the above countries.

Other than those, I'd like to see the USL, Bosnia and Saudi leagues in the game.

Same here. I like to play "regional" games, and I would love to have African Leagues beyond South Africa so that I could move from South Africa to other African countries during the course of a career.

Considering the HUGE impact of the African footballer on the world stage, it's a major, MAJOR negative for FM that there is only one single African league to play in the game.

I scratch my head whenever I hear the "the research is too difficult" excuse.

The "deepest darkest Africa" stereotype that so many people of the majority culture believe in does not exist. There are many vibrant leagues and passionate fans in African countries.

Research for a country torn by war, such as DR Congo, might be a problem, but what about Ghana? Egypt? Nigeria?

The "Almanack of World Football" is a great resource. Leagues in some African countries have websites.

There are many people of African ancestry who play FM and could help with research.

I don't begrudge the people who did the research and got a country like Indonesia included, but why Indonesia and not Cameroon?

I would rather have a couple more playable African leagues than feeder teams.

I think SI has not bothered to add more African leagues because they are just apathetic about that area of football, as the majority culture throughout the Western world is apathetic about all things African--all things except the wars and famine that reinforce the stereotypical opinions they already have.

I dont want any new leagues adding by SI there is to much development work required in other areas. BUT 3 things I would like to see are:

1. Add new country/league option to game, thus any body can create new leagues.

2. An area on the web site where people can upload new leagues/countries/players that they have created.

3. For these uploaded games to be able to be downloaded, with the option of the league/ country being able to charge a fee to cover there hard work and dedication. Plus ofcourse the option for people to review and recommend these leagues.

If this was to be done then who ever wished to see every league in every country avialble would no doubt see it become a reality.

The only proviso I would make to SI is that in future versions of the game the same code.

I'm impressed by the quantity of leagues currently available, but have absolutely nothing against adding more playable leagues.

Given the continual increase of storage size, processing speed of even "average" quality/price PC's, it makes sense that the game will keep apace with the increased possiblilities available, upon each release.

With regards to new leagues I would like to see, I honestly don't have any particular "wish-list" but as long as it's possible to re-create with accurate research, any of the leagues everyone has suggested, then I'll be happy.

The only suggestions I'm a little sceptical about are those lower leagues in countries outside the UK in which promotion to a higher tier is'nt possible. I wonder how many players would actually wish to play in these leagues. For a significant length of time.

I've seen mention of more detailed reserve and youth leagues. This is'nt important to me personally, as I'm happy with the current setup. What I would quite like to see however, is perhaps further development of the cup tournaments that club youth teams are involved with. It's been done to some extent at international level within the game.

Some examples of such real-life youth tournaments can be found here:-

Copa se Sao Paolo - Telegraph.co.uk Report (http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/sport/patricknathanson/january08/alleyesonsaopaolo.htm)

Champions Youth Cup - G14 Website Announcement (http://www.g14.com/news/news.php?newsid=53)

Champions Youth Cup, Malaysia - Manuts.com Report (Inaugural Winners) (http://www.manutd.com/default.sps?pagegid=%7BB4CEE8FA-9A47-47BC-B069-3F7A2F35DB70%7D&newsid=464590)

The main difficulty I would imagine would be coding the selection of participants. Perhaps something along the lines of how first teams qualify for competitions like the Champions League or the EURO Cup, by means of winning their respective league or a cup.

It would be interesting to see what others think of the idea, given that the development of youngsters is fastly becoming a very important and influencial part of the game.

24-01-2008, 13:55
I don't know whether it is useless writing which leagues we would like to be added because I don't think SI will take notice of this! Hope I am wrong because we FM lovers all want some new challenges!

As loads said before, these leagues would be a great addition:

African Leagues
Cyprus
Malta

From the latter country, we have recently many promising players emerging namely:
Michael Mifsud (Coventry City)
Daniel Bogdanovic (Cisco Roma)
Udo Nwoko (Leixoes)
Luke Dimech (Macclesfield Town)
Andre Schembri (Eintrachr Braunschweig)
Justin Haber (Haidari)
Andrei Agius (Igea Virtus) etc

We would like to see their hometown league.

I don't manage abroad that much although what with the standard of African footballers becoming higher and the African Cup of Nations becoming more and more of a high class tournament i think the inclusion of some African leagues would be good.

Personally i'd love to have the next tier of English football as i'd be able to manage my local side Hemel Hempstead without having to wait for them to get promoted.

I think that adding the Welsh 2nd division is a must, it would mean so many more people such as myself play in Wales. It would mean that for those again such as myself who enjoy long term games would be able to do this in Wales with the inclusion of promotion/relegation.

As for adding the highland league in Scotland i think it'd only be worth it if the propsed relegation from Div 3 goes ahead which i truely hope it does.

The Canadian league would be nice. I've always wanted to play as London City no matter how crap they are.

Also i'm sure SI could add a relegation system from Scottish Third Division into the lower leagues. It may not be realistic in real terms, but it is only a game and would make LLM quite a bit of fun.

Plus Pollok seem to get really far in the cup games in my game. So it would be quite fun to watch their progress through the leagues.

Just a thought.

Is it only me that feels this?
Yes, because adding more leaguses dont consume any time of coders/si - all research for legues are done by external researchers.
And having many more legues are only better. Ansd many nations deserve third divs too - not only firts and second.
And I agrre with previous posters - game need fisr div for every nation - and if first div of new nations will have only realistic names of teams and stadium names/capacities - Im happy. Adding realistik names/players can happen later.
Anfd finaly - having all nations playable will FINALY fix inability to manage some national teams due to not enough players for national call-ups.

- Albanian league
- Georgian league
- Also more African leagues, especially Egypt, Ivory Coast, Nigeria

If they are, then whatever league is below that.

The leagues below it are, The Highland League, The South of Scotland Football League, The East of Scotland Premier and 1st Division.

I edit my game and input the South of Scotland instead of the third division teams. I would do the research for it, and could get it all set up, and a scouting network introduced for it?

The ability to be able to create a custom league, where you can decide on how many teams in each league and many other rules.

Would then allow people to create either:

a) Leagues from countries that are not playable in the game.

b) Superleagues, like a UK combination, European or World Superleague.

Unquestionably the attention needs to be drawn to the African side of the game. The rest of the world is evenly represented in my opinion. The South African league is probably not even one of the strongest leagues in Africa yet it is the only playable league in the game.

I don't think that this point is even debatable.

More South American leagues would be good too.

Would love to see all leagues that are unplayable be playable, especially the other league in North and Central/South America. Africa and Oceania would be great too.

Think the lower leagues in England that can provide teams to the current system should also be playable.

And of course, the ability to edit leagues from the start, create your own would be awesome too.

We definitaly need more African leagues I mean South Africa is hardly a powerhouse in Africa to begin with and loading South Africa for some reason doesn;t have the same affect to the amount of players in your game as would loading some random league from asia or the asutralia for oceania.

We definitaly need to see the Egyptian, Tunisian, Nigerian, Morrocon, Angolan, Ghanian, Algerian, Libyan, Mali, Guinea, and Senegalese leagues in the game. From Asia we really need the Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabian, Bahrain, Iranian leahues and if SI can some how pull it off the return of the J-League would be one of the best new additions to the game in a long while. Wouldn;t mind havin g the New Zealnd league in there just because Australia has moved to Asia now and should be considered more of an Asian nation kinda liek how Israel is considrede Europe in the game because they compete in UEFA.

I agree it would cost too much to research all teams from all nations and I don't think there will ever be an FM version where all leagues would be available.

- adding the possibility to manage clubs from other nations, even with grey players

Cyprus
Moldavian
Cyprus
Lybian
Qatari
Paraguayan
Japanese
Iranian
Lithuanian
Tunisisan
Egyptian
Morocco
Saudi Arabian
Moldavian
and i would like tht players from africa are made better so that i can buy some african talents.
It would be better for SI that they make less lower leagues.It is enough that game has three leagues from five bigger countries(Britain,spain,france,germany,italy)and two leagues from rest.

I agree with more african leagues, and more south american leagues, if even just for morew players coming through from these regions without selecting "load all players from..."

And lower Scotland, i know there are no official rules on promotion on division 3 but I think there's a lot of people who would like to manage at that level as it would add loads to career games.

I'd love the J-league aswell, but apart from that and African leagues, I'd just be happy with lower divisions of current nations, and as much as I'd like lower England, I think it's already a bit unbalanced in terms of how low it goes in England compared to other coutries, so I think other countries have to be worked on before england is to be extended

BERMUDA! The players might be carp, but the league is really well put together and it's about the only sport that gets crowds of more than 100 people on a regular basis.

PLUS, it means I might be able to get to be in the game. http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif

I would love to see the USL (both USL-1 and USL-2) added to the playable leagues. Would it take that much more research? I know that most USL players are already scouted. How much more would it take to make the league playable?

Welsh Second Tier (Cymru Alliance for the north, Welsh League Division One for the south)

Kosovo League

Personally i'd love to have the next tier of English football as i'd be able to manage my local side Hemel Hempstead without having to wait for them to get promoted.

I think that adding the Welsh 2nd division is a must, it would mean so many more people such as myself play in Wales. It would mean that for those again such as myself who enjoy long term games would be able to do this in Wales with the inclusion of promotion/relegation.

As for adding the highland league in Scotland i think it'd only be worth it if the propsed relegation from Div 3 goes ahead which i truely hope it does.

I didn't check the dates of this thread and was about to post exactly what i said back in January. So there it is, again.

IMO, SI should modify the editor instead of adding gazillions of leagues, to let us create our own leagues (or download them). I would prefer to have some more African leagues, and New Zealand doesn't interest me, and it shouldn't have a place in my HDD.

See NZ may not interest some people, but more african leagues does not exactly interest everyone either. The reason I suggest NZ was because we have no Oceanic leagues at all. But yes I would also prefer it as an option to create leagues or something similar in the editor, or possibly make it possible to change the rules in a league so we can change them and set them up how they should be http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I think more African leagues is a must, considering Al-Ahly (spelling?) of Egypt are the most successful African team of all time. Some of the Arabic leagues would be interesting, especially with more and more talented players from Europe and South America (young and old) going there.

I'd also like to see more regional international competitions to add a bit more competitiveness to managing a small nation.

Adding to the CONCACAF is necessary now with their Champions League forming. I'm tired of it coming down to mexico and usa all the time.

Also, NCAA and USL 1 and 2 would be cool. Adds depth to their drafting system.

lol the New Zealand league is NOT worth playing in I can assure you that.

I'd want to see some more US football divisions, especially USA College soccer, I'd like for SI to objectively measure how a youth league with few transfers combined with college education will do for young players. Also It would be huge fun to give out scholarships to worthy young players, only having them part-time due to their study committments etc.
