Intro

The combination of youth only and building a small nation seemed to me a worthwhile attempt. So I will only use players from my own youth academy. There is a chance that I will be allowed to buy back players(newgens) from my own youth academy at a later date ... but I will decide on that after a while. This is my third attempt to start a topic. Third time , good time...

 

Why Gibraltar and Manchester 62

bdba89915e1875e508b4ee6b43410b5e.png

At U21/23 Gibraltar, Manchester 62 is the national supplier. The current number seven Premier Division, the highest league in the peninsula, is represented by six players in the twenty-piece selection. They seem to have the highest youth importance (17) and second highest youth recruitment (15) & Youth Coaching (10).

I like the fact that this is an unknown league,nice story with the rock of Gibraltar, the link with England & Spain, building a small nation and link with Manchester United .

All credits to @Jimbokav1971 for his great topic (conquering the world with Lincoln) en and all the commitment from @cel1234, to update the database (in the original database there is a Prize Money bug, teams get 260K, not only the champion of group 1 , also the winner of group 2, the relegation group. In real life they only get 20k for the first place. I'm using the right datbase so this will be much harder. Also Boca are no longer involved in Gibraltar national league. He made the Intermediate (2th tier with u23 teams) available from the start.

History Gibraltar Football

4eeee706a32b63736433dcf7a0ae7ee4.jpg
Our stadium located next to the airport.

Gibraltar, a British Overseas Territory located on the South of the Iberian Peninsula, is rarely spoken about in the footballing world. With a population of 34,000 contained within 6.7km2, you might not have expected the Rock to have a formal competitive football league.

But with the qualifying stages of the Champions League and Europa League becoming home to many Gibraltarian clubs, and also with plenty of exciting young players representing Gibraltar, it might time we paid more attention to football in Gibraltar.

The Gibraltar Football Association (GFA) was started in 1895 as football began to popularise across the globe during the 19th Century. In 1907, the GFA started the Gibraltar Football League, with the only competition existing before that being the Merchant’s Cup. The league began with eight teams, later expanding to two divisions.

Gibraltarian football can provide some of the most exciting football in the lower leagues of Europe, and it’s important to highlight why fans find football exciting in the first place.Whether you know any professional or semi-professional footballers, sometimes it’s hard to separate the player and the person. As we are spectators to players, it’s good to remind us that some players are just as human as we are.

This is what the football in Gibraltar shows, in particular in their journeys through European qualifying. Players among a population of around 34,000 are trying to shine, and sometimes succeeding. It’s what is most exciting and reminds us of why we all started enjoying football in the first place.

Format & Competitions

There are currently three domestic senior men’s tournaments in Gibraltar. Since being reformed at the start of the 2019/20 season, there has only been one senior tier in Gibraltar, known as The Gibraltar National League.

Although the reforming of the league came at the unfortunate expense of dissolving a number of clubs, it now makes sense that all football Gibraltar is united in one league. 11 teams competed in the 2020/21 season, with each team facing each other once before the league splitting in half.

Spoiler

 

The top half, the Championship Group, compete for the title and a place in the qualifying stages of the Champions League or Europa League, with each of them playing each other twice. The bottom half, the Challenge Group, compete for the Challenge trophy which gives them a bye into the next round of the Rock Cup.

The Rock Cup is Gibraltar’s domestic cup, similar to many other association cup knock-out competitions but with only four rounds.

The final tournament is the Pepe Reyes Cup, contested between the winner of the National League and the Rock Cup.

Gibraltar also run a league for the reserve teams (Intermediate league) of all the sides in the National League. There is also a Women’s league and cup, from which teams can qualify for the Women’s Champions League.

 

Facilities

Victoria Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Gibraltar. It is currently used mostly for football matches, but also hosts the annual Gibraltar Music Festival. It is located close to Gibraltar Airport just off Winston Churchill Avenue. It was named after the wife of Gibraltarian philanthropist John Mackintosh.

Despite initial plans to replace the stadium in the 2010s, the Gibraltar Football Association purchased the stadium from the Government of Gibraltar in April 2017 in order to improve and renovate it. The plans to build a new stadium are still ongoing.

Spoiler

In April 2017, the Gibraltar Football Association announced its purchase of the stadium in order to redevelop it into a UEFA Category 4 stadium at a cost of £16.5 million given to the GFA by UEFA and FIFA. The proposed new stadium sites at Lathbury and Europa Point would be developed into multi-sports facilities by the Government of Gibraltar. The GFA announced it would invest £15 million into the stadium after purchasing it owing to grants from UEFA and FIFA. As a result of the GFA's purchase of Victoria Stadium, UEFA dropped their objections to the stadium providing works to expand the stadium to 8,000 capacity were complete by 2018 then they would be permitted to use the stadium for their home games in UEFA sanctioned international competition matches. This upgrade is not included in the game.

Manchester 62 F.C. Facts

4eee331295a52a8ce6a9f4c88118305e.png

The club was founded as Manchester United F.C. in 1962, named in honour of the English club Manchester United by a group of supporters, after the manager Matt Busby gave them permission to use the name. They play in the Gibraltar Football League's First Division. United play their home games in the Victoria Stadium. In 2013, UEFA gave the Gibraltar Football League one place each in the qualifying rounds of both the Europa League and the Champions League, meaning that, for the first time, the two clubs could potentially meet in the same competition.

Division One, Champions: 1975, 1977, 1979, 1980, 1984, 1995, 199

Rock Cup , Winners: 1977, 1980, 1997, 2003

De Los Santos is our best player, don't think he'll stay long. He'll be my AMC Adv. playmaker. Ballantine my inside forward and Pacheco my main striker. Ross Gray was included in this database update and he is my best central defender.

reserved for potential restart after dealing with registration bug at other teams (whether or not after brexit). This way the other teams couldn't play with their best 10/20 players and we could. If a fix comes up I restart.

Yes he is our main star but he is the only one that i can't extend at the moment. The other key players signed a new contract + one year option.

I'll have the best squad in our first season, if De Los Santos leave we'll have to wait many years before someone with his qualities pop up.

Brexit

I made little of this message until, after five gameweeks, I saw that the other teams had a lot of unregistered players.
Apparently they are not allowed to use their NOT gibralatar born players anymore or barely.
Luckily, I have a first centre with almost only players from Scotland or Gibraltar... so I'm going to continue for the time being... very strange.
