    Default Wellington Phoenix cant qualify for the AFC Champions League

    Hi guys,

    I'm currently managing Wellington Phoenix @ the A-League, and after winning the league the game tells me that I qualified to the AFC Champions League. However, on the next season I don't show up in that competition!

    I tried to check what was wrong with the editor, but I cant seem to figure out wether this is a bug or just that the Phoenix arent allowed to play this particular competition. Can anyone help me on this?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm pretty sure that they're not eligable due to them being a New Zealand team and New Zealand isn't part of the Asian Federation.

    I played in the Asian Champions League with Wellington Phoenix so it is possible.

    It included the New Zealand league but not sure if that would have any effect on the Asian champions league.

    Actually they can play in the AFC, according to this.

    I wonder whats wrong with my game then! Can anyone tell me when the first matches of the AFC CL are played? I'm still in December 2010, having been the champion for the 2009/2010 season.

    I qualified in the 2011/12 season and the first matches I played were on the 13th March 2013. The whole league season apart from the grand finals series had been played. So in your game it should be a few months away yet.

    I guess that should be it. I was just expecting a similar calendar to the UEFA CL, I guess.

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    If you don't mind could you let us know if you end up in the Asian Champions League.

    It might be short lived that they can compete though - Asian Federation looking to force them to count NZ players as overseas players.

    The ACL imediately following your completed season includes the teams from the previous years A League season. You will be in the year afters competition. This is how it is in the A League in real life.....Not sure why.

    Well the AFC did ban them from competing if they ever qualified but FIFA overturned it. Although there is a general feeling that the AFC may pushed to have them banned if they did qualify.

    Hi guys,

    Just checking back in with news from my game. Not only did I take part in the group phase of the AFC Champions League, but I also managed to qualify to the 2nd round, only to be eliminated by Hyunday from the J-League.

    Thanks once again,
