Winski Posted September 2, 2020 Share Posted September 2, 2020 Queen's Park F.C. After some failed attempts in the youth-only topic, I decided to start a save with Queen's Park F.C. According to Wikipedia: Quote Queen's Park Football Club is a Scottish football club based in Glasgow, which currently plays in Scottish League Two. Queen's Park is the oldest association football club in Scotland, having been founded in 1867, and is the oldest outside England and Wales. Queen's Park is also the only Scottish football club to have played in the FA Cup Final, achieving this feat in both 1884 and 1885. So, the oldest football club in Scotland. That's a nice thing. Another nice thing is the sell of Hampden Park: Quote In 2018, a deal was made for the SFA to purchase Hampden from Queen's Park upon the expiry of the lease in 2020 for a fee of £5 million, with the club to improve Lesser Hampden and play their matches there. In November 2019 the club announced plans to redevelop Lesser Hampden into a 1774 capacity ground. As of August 2020, ownership of the main stadium had been transferred to the SFA and a new facility was under construction at Lesser Hampden. So in 2020 Queens Park will receive appr. € 5 million for the sell of their stadium! That's a lot of money for a club in League Two. And, according to BBC: Quote Queen's Park's members have voted to end 152 years as amateurs and Scotland's oldest club will now move towards the professional ranks. The Glasgow club are the last remaining amateur side in the Scottish Professional Football League. But 91% of members accepted advice from the club that change was needed to compete with their rivals. President Gerry Crawley said: "It's a historic evening. 152 years of history. There's a degree of mixed feelings." With Hampden Park being sold to the Scottish FA, and a move to neighbouring Lesser Hampden in prospect, Queen's Park also recognised the growing threat of Highland League and Lowland Leagues keen to take their place through promotion to the SPFL. So that means that finally, after 152 years, Queens Park isn't an amateurclub anymore. So a lot of reasons to start a save with Queen's Park FC! It will be a youth only save, so I will not buy anyone. I will only use players from my own academy. Maybe I'll allow myself to buy academy players back when I sold them before. But I'm not sure about that. My goal? Win the Champions League. The same goal as with the 'real' youth only-challenge. Let's go! 1 Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
