Glory Hunter Series with additional challenges

Recommended Posts

 Glory Hunter is a Football Manager challenge series that was popularised by various Youtubers like DoctorBenjy, TomFM, Omega Luke among others.

What is Glory Hunter?

Glory Hunter is a Football Manager challenge where the manager has 20 seasons to win:

  • The domestic leagues and main domestic cups of the Top 5 Leagues in Europe: England, Spain, France, Germany & Italy
  • UEFA Champions League
  • UEFA Europa League
  • Club World Cup
  • World Cup
  • European Championship.

What does this challenge require?

  • You have 20 seasons to complete the challenge (Universal FM24 End Date: 30 June 2043);
  • Select any team in the game with any coaching badges;
  • You can add editor files (mods) such as domestic leagues, or real life competitions, or you can use data updates from Pr0, SirTavares, etc. [Show screenshot of selected editor databases] - this is so that we can maintain realism and keep integrity of the game compared to real-life. 
  •  No special requirements are needed, you have a lot of flexibility with this challenge.

Extra internal challenges within your save, some challenges may require editor files [ - Difficulty (more is harder)] :

  • New Kids on the Block []: Win the World Cup or Euros with a team that has never won it before
  • A New Beginning []: Win the leagues with teams that have never won the league (or haven't in a very long time).

  • Outsiders []: Win all European Competitions (CL & EL) with a team located outside of the Top 5 Leagues 

  • Quality over Prestige []: Limit yourself to signing free agents,  relying on youth intakes & signing players that do not play for a Top Division club (for that season). (Tip: Sign players from relegated teams from previous season to steal their stars.)

  • Hexagon Challenge []:
    • Add another 20-30 seasons to win the following trophies (you can start anywhere and go anywhere throughout the save but Glory Hunter in 20 seasons is the main objective):
      • CAF Champions League, AFC Champions League, CONCACAF Champions League, Copa Libertadores, OFC Champions League
      • African Cup of Nations (not CHAN), AFC Asian Cup, CONCACAF Gold Cup, Copa America, OFC Nations Cup
      • Optional: Win a domestic league and cup in each continent. 

You can combine these together and with other challenges like Youth Academy Challenge, Domestic-Only Challenge, etc.
You may add any twists that help you enjoy the game more.

Decided to work out a strategy to tackle this intriguing challenge.
There is also only a finite amount of tournaments left till 2043 across major club and international tournaments for the next 20 seasons. This is broken down.
So timing of being a true continental manager requires us to ensure we are timing things in line with major tournaments


Knowing domestic Top 5 League Titles and Domestic Cups, together with the european UEFA Champions League and European UEFA Europa League are on offer every season.

Analyzing and interpreting the challenges on offer

I decided to model the challenges to see how they flow and what routes to take.

In principle there is achievements across club management and international management....with a world domination piece (hexagon)...which is only achieved if you conquer Confederation and Association cups outside Europe.


Database Setup

Given the top 5 leagues are is effectively the main focus I decided to load the FM save with the top 25 leagues as per UEFA website https://www.uefa.com/nationalassociations/uefarankings/country/#/yr/2024


Config & Setup
Hence we decided with making the Top 5 leagues playable with the other 20 are view only for now. This takes the database to an initial count of 132430 players.
We will be playing the attribute masking ON and we will not be enabling any in-game editor.
We are also playing  the default clean with 24.3.0 database with no custom additions or addons (I do typically play with a new mods in my own saves)
