Hi, this will be My First Post on this forum. Only a Recent-ish player of FM as My first Full FM experience was on FM18. Regardless I hope that I can provide some entertainment with My Save.
So I have been lurking around in this forum for some time now, without making an account and posting anything. I have enjoyed reading multiple saves that have been going around.
Inspired by @ManUtd1 and @Makoto Nakamura's Saves with the Nearly Men both in the UEFA Champions League, and Europa League respectively, I have decided to do the Same with America's. Originally I was only planning to use South America and the Copa Libertadores but decided to add the CONCACAF Champions League to also include North America as well as South America. This mainly being as from 2015 Mexican Clubs do not participate in the Copa Libertadores anymore. In Regards to the CONCACAF Champions League, the Competition started out a New Era in 2008, with a Group Stage instead of the Old format with when the Teams were originally split into zones. I have decided to include the Teams that came runner-up in the old format in the save as Teams I'll complete the challenge with, just for more of a challenge, along with the teams from the format now too of course. I do believe IRL there is a new format that the Teams qualify by starting this 2018.
So the Idea of this Save as You may have guessed so far is to Win The Copa Libertadores with the Clubs that have come runner-up before but never ended up reaching the end goal, I will then proceed to do the same for the CONCACAF Champions League with North America. Also as an extra added bonus down the Line is using International Teams as well for the Gold Cup and Copa America, this though probably won't happen until later in the save. Just to note the Only Runner-up never to win the Copa America is Mexico. I know IRL it is the 10 South American Countries + 2 others. In FM these are labeled as "B" teams. Not sure how it will work out with Mexico but if anyone does know then that would be very Appreciated. Also with the Gold Cup Brazil lost in a final when it wasn't limited to just CONCACAF Nations, but since then it has been only CONCACAF Nations so Brazil is now impossible to win that competition with.
Not sure how often I'll be updating, just whenever I get chance too as FM Playing time can be limited due to RL, but I will do my Best.
I have Loaded up all the Leagues I Need but can Add and Remove when Needed, I have all North + South American Leagues available to me with @claassen s wonderful update pack. I will finish off this first Post with All the Teams I Need to use to complete this challenge Documented below:
