  1. LOS ANGELES FOOTBALL CLUB. BACKGROUND Los Angeles Football Club is an American professional football team based in the Exposition Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. The team plans to begin play in Major League Soccer (MLS) starting in 2018. The team was announced in October 2014. The ownership group is headed by venture capitalist Henry Nguyen, entrepreneur Peter Guber, and former National Basketball Association executive Tom Penn. The ownership group also includes businessmen Ruben Gnanalingamand Vincent Tan. In addition, the club has a further 21 named investors including Magic Johnson, Nomar and Mia Hamm-Garciaparra, Chad Hurley, Tony Robbins and Will Ferrell. John Thorrington was hired as executive vice president of football operations. The ownership sought input from fans to decide the permanent name and logo. On November 7, 2014, Nguyen expressed a preference for the name Los Angeles Football Club being permanent, describing it as "timeless" and saying, "in the world, football means one thing. Maybe it speaks a little bit to our own vision and our own aspirations." On September 15, 2015, the club announced the placeholder name, Los Angeles Football Club, would be the official team name. STADIUM On May 17, 2015, the Los Angeles Times reported the team chose the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena site at Exposition Park to build a new stadium. The Banc of California Stadium will have 22,000 seats and 140,000 square feet of open space, costing US$350 million. The group estimated the project would create 1,200 temporary construction jobs and 1,800 full-time jobs, generating $2.5 million in annual tax revenue. The environmental impact report, arena demolition and stadium construction are expected to take three years and delay the team's debut to 2018. The seating capacity of the stadium will be 22,000. The stadium's seating will be at 34 degrees, which makes it among the steepest in MLS. The closest seats will be 12 feet from the field and every seat will be within 135 feet of the field. It will include 125,000 square feet (11,600 m2) of walkways and plazas open to the public. The stadium will also feature press box suites with a swimming pool. The roof will be covered with 190,000 square feet (18,000 m2) of ETFE film. The field will be 86,000 square feet (8,000 m2) of improved bermuda grass. Five percent of the stadium's parking spaces will have electric vehicle charging stations and 20% electric vehicle ready infrastructure. The stadium will have 440 planned parking spaces for bicycles and a bike path to the stadium as part of the My Figueroa Project. The stadium will be a LEED Silver certified building.

  2. INTRODUCTION I'm having a lot of fun with my recent Alemannia save, but there's something that I've always wanted to do. I wanted to do a US save, but with a more American feel to it. I've thought it through and I got so amped up, that I'm giving it a go: we're going to the MLS. I'm a huge fan of American sports and I dare to say that I understand all the rules on acquiring players, wage budgets, drafts and so on fairly well, but to actually manage these rules has been something else. Up until now. This will be a trial and error save written to not only learn, but also document all the moves as thorough as possible for anyone who wants to manage in the MLS, but has never really dared to delve into all the rules. Who else to do that than... Enter Timothy Ferguson, my Boston-born Irish-American alter ego. I'd say we almost look alike. THE SETUP Having played OOTP (Baseball's alternative to Football Manager), I've quite enjoyed fulfilling the GM role. You don't manage the games specifically, but you're responsable for acquiring the team on the field. You can have a specific philosophy, ideas and goals, but once the players get on the field, it's up to the manager to decide what happens next. I want to emulate that in this save. I've thought this through, so here are my rules and goals in General Manager 2018: - My assistant manager, Tom Soehn, will effectively be the manager of my team. - Before preseason, Tom will decide which formation fits the current squad the best. This will be the formation through the postseason and the first month of the regular season. The only thing I'm allowed to adjust are the team and personal instructions - I will not manage the games themselves. In fact, I will holiday all games. I will be in the VIP box, drinking piña coladas while wearing flashy sunglasses only American frat boys wear - Every month, I will have a meeting with my manager. In practice, this means I will consult whether Tom thinks a new formation will be necessary. The only thing I can change are, once again, the team and personal instructions. That's it. Only once a month. - With this setup, I'll need to focus as much as possible in acquiring a competitive team. With all MLS restrictions, that means not only thinking about the current team, but also the years ahead. For education's sake, I will try to be as concise as possible in how and why I'm building my team the way I do. Because that's the only thing I get to do. I'm the GM. - The eventual goal is winning the MLS, the CONCACAF Champions League and eventually the Club World Cup - In real life, New England Revolution is playing its games at the immense Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, 30 miles southwest of Boston. As it's effectively an NFL stadium and I actually want to manage a team FROM Boston, I'm hoping to build a soccer-specific stadium in Boston. I don't know if this is possible in FM (will a potentially new stadium be built in Boston or Foxborough?), but as this is one of the biggest goals of the current management, I thought it'd be cool to add this as one of my own challenges as well Me fanboying at Gillette Stadium, not only the home of the New England Patriots NFL team, but also the New England Revolution (albeit with a limited max. capacity of 20.000 ---- So that'll be that for now. In the next update I will analyze my team and my short-term and long-term goals as GM. I'll also explain a little thing about MLS squad rules and team building. Leaves me with this:
  3. So i have a database i set up that gets rid of a lot of the MLS rules against transfers, but one rule i cant seem to get rid of is the fact that MLS gets 33% of all transfers. Is there a way to fix this?
  4. I've been editing inside the MLS setup to change the format. In vanilla the MLS has 2 conferences. In the editor this means a group (conferences) phase besides the league (MLS) phase. What I want is to split up each conference in 2 divisions, thus having 4 divisions total. Example: Western conference (14 teams): -Pacific Division (7 teams) -Plains Division (7 teams) Eastern conference (14 teams): -Continental Division (7 teams) -Atlantic Division (7 teams) The winner of each division is placed for the Conference semi-finals (2 eastern, 2 western). The numbers 2 & 3 of each division are placed for the wild-card round (8 total, 4 between each conference). Does anyone know if it is technically possible to accomplish this setup in the advanced editor? I've been trying around, but can't quite get my head around it. I don't know how to tell the editor that there are basically 3 tables to look at: 1. The overall MLS standing, 2. Conference standing, 3. Division standing Option 1 and 2 is possible, as this is default ingame. But I want to add option 3 under 2.
  5. (FWIW I'm playing FM17 & trying to make a CAT in-game) I want to edit MLS rules so I can simplify finances (eliminate salary cap and Designated Players) and increase the number of foreign players on a roster. Main question: How to Increase Salary Cap & Foreign Players Limit I know the workflow when you get to Advanced Rules is "USA->Match Rules->Rules 0->Squad Selection Rules->Foreign players in match/Annual Salary" but I don't know what the values and criteria should be. Bonus Question: How do I get rid of DPs? Thanks in advance!
  6. I've noticed the affiliation with MLS teams and their USL club don't work properly. I'm trying to fix it in the editor but can't figure it out. For example, I'm playing as the New York Red Bulls. I have a second team in the USL called New York II. There's a player on New York II I want to promote to my squad. In previous versions, I make a transfer offer for $0 and it's accepted. Now I'm having to go through a normal transfer and being asked to pay a transfer fee by New York II. I looked at the affiliation in the editor and it has "Players Move Freely" and "Same Board" checked. Oddly enough, I can't check "First Option to Buy". Anyone know how to setup an affiliations where a transfer of $0 is automatically accepted between clubs? I thought it was just "Players Move Freely" but apparently not. Hamami Update.fmf
  7. I admit this is a little nitpicky, but I don't understand why it's happening. I've created two lower divisions in the United States. There's one thing I edited in MLS that's not working. The way the game is coded, there's no team selected as the champion of MLS. The team that wins the playoffs is named the champion of MLS Cup. In last year's game, I deleted MLS Cup and had the winner of the playoffs be named the winner of MLS. It was really easy. This year there's one minor thing wrong. On the screenshot I included, at the top of the screen under the name of the league, where it says "Defending Champions", it's listing the wrong team. It's listing the team that's won the Supporters' Shield. I'm not sure how to change it. The game is naming the winner of the playoffs as the champion of MLS, yet under Defending Champions it's not changing. Also new to this year, on the league dashboard, on the right side where it says "Past Winners", it's listing 4 teams: the playoff champion, Supporters' Shield winners, East Conf winner, and West Conf winner. Anyone know why this is happening? Hamami Update.fmf
  8. Greetings SI! I was thinking about things involving FM and the USA/MLS. One of the things that's happened a lot in the real world is the amount of clubs seeking legislature for tax money in their communities to be used to upgrade/build new stadiums (take the Columbus Crew SC situation as the most recent example) and I would be interested to see if things like that and elements of the US Soccer culture could be implemented into at least the MLS side of things where if you need money instead of it just coming out of the board that you ask the board to submit paperwork for tax money to be used. Thanks! Can't wait for FM 18. <3
  9. Please give some attention to the function of managing in America, and how the youth system works there. With the financial restrictions that are present when managing in the MLS, the only way to really sustain long-term success and growth is through a good youth program. But in FM17 there isn't a whole lot that you can do with that. There are no U18 or U20 leagues and no real way to develop youth players other than playing them in the first team or loaning them out to a 2nd or 3rd tier American team that FM won't even simulate games for. There is also the issue of the U.S. Development Academy, which is seemingly the only way to find American players under 17, but you cannot sign players from the academy, it is just locked.
  10. Greetings Everyone, Apologies if I'm breaking rules by making a new thread here, I read the 'FM 18 Links Thread' and saw no threads for MLS or Toronto FC Long-Time Player of FM but new to FM 18. Being from Toronto and TFC being in the midst of a playoff run, I started a game with them in July 2017 (and no transfers in first window) along with the Canadian National Team. Now it’s January 2018, I managed to win the Supporter’s Shield and MLS Cup. I’m looking into bringing in some players. Lost Cheyrou (CM/DM), Moor (CD) and Beitashour (RWB). Brought in Juninho (CD) from Tigres and Stephen Eustaquio (CM, Canadian) so far. My Transfer Budget is $10M US/8.3M Euros/7.4M Pounds. All DP slots are used by Bradley, Altidore (who I received a $10M offer from Everton for. Should I reject?), and Giovinco. Priorities are: 1) Central Defender, Ball Playing Defender 2) Right Wing Back 3) Advanced Forward Since I’m also the Canadian National Team Manager, Ideally I’d like an uncapped player from a big nation (E.G, Argentina, Brazil) who will be able to play for me for 3 years then get their Canadian Citizenship. Any help would be appreciated, Tips for playing in the MLS would also be nice! Thanks
  11. 30th December 2016 Gene collapsed into an armchair in the living room of the small flat he had just bought his mother, in Smallingerland, and switched on the tele. He sighed... the last few weeks had been a whirlwind. Gene had been a sensation of Dutch football, snapped up at a young age by German giants Bayern Munich where he'd burst onto the scene as a 17 year old, and some even dared to whisper his name in the same breath as the legendary Johan Cruijff. This was to be the man to revolutionise the Dutch national team, which had seen an incredible decline in recent years. He made 15 appearances for his country, scoring two goals from midfield, but a horror injury had ultimately ended his career aged only 20 years old. The football world was fickle, he'd already been forgotten, and now he was back where it had all started. He looked down at the picture next to him, the only photograph his mother had of who she said was his father. He chuckled, and then sighed again. Growing up, she had told him that this man was 'Scott McBride', captain of the Scotland team that lifted the World Cup trophy in 2058. As a child, he had been fascinated by stories of this mystery man from the future. As an adult? He realised to his horror that his mother actually thought it was true. Regardless, the story had inspired Gene. It had driven him to a career in football himself, and he had always held a special place for the Scotland team in his heart - even though the first game of football he could remember was Holland's 6-0 drubbing of the Tartan Army in a European Championship playoff when he was only 6 years old. Therefore, the news that Gordon Strachan had left his position as manager of the current Scottish national side was an interesting prospect for the young Dutchman. The press were saying the job had to go to a Scot, that it should be someone with experience, but what the hell. Gene registered his interest. The job was never going to be his anyway, and he'd already had several positive meetings with Greg Kerfoot and Rachel Lewis at the Vancouver Whitecaps about taking their vacant position, he had nothing to lose.
  12. I hope this is in the correct place, I wasn't sure where to put it. Is there a way on FM18 to search for players that have declared for the MLS Superdraft. On last years game you could filter so you could see the players, but I can seem to find any way of doing that this year. I really don't want to have to click on them 1 by 1 to scout them.
  13. I love this game. I would be beyond happy though if I could play with the US national team. Why no concacaf? I've played against the team's while managing England so why can't I be them?
  14. I'm currently running my first MLS play through, but I don't seem to understand how to buy players from within the league. When I attempt to trade a player for General Allocation Funds the game puts a hard cap of $500k, despite having over $40m in the bank. - pictured here. I've also gone through and edited players away from my team to free up cap space, although this did not appear to impact anything. Am I misunderstanding how the allocation funds are to be used or is there something I am missing?
  15. I'm playing a season in the MLS. I've found that sometimes my General Allocation Money decreases over time into the negative, more money being deducted week after week. I now find that my General Allocation Money is increasing week after week. I'm now up to $12M in General Allocation Money. I don't know why it's increasing. I made one trade for GAM early in the season but for a very small amount. I'm pretty sure this is a bug since my funds shouldn't be increasing or decreasing without a specific trade.
  16. Hi I'm trying to start a new MLS game for 2017, so starting in March 2017. There are only options for 2016 starts. Is there a workaround for this?
  17. Hi Guys, I created a new competition structure based in the United States of America. I would like to hear your opinion about this league. You can visit the workshop here: Steam Workshop Link I tested a season with LA Galaxy and FC Dallas and I really enjoyed this game set-up. I am going to start a story about this league next week (after my exams). The challenge The American competition contains decent teams with some top players like Dos Santos. Your first season will be difficult due to the limited transfer budget. With the increased TV and price money your financial possibilities improve after the first season. Your goal is the end in the top 5 of the Trump League One. This top 5 compete in a play-offs to determine the overall champion of the league. Try to stay away from the bottom 5 of the league. The bottom 5 compete with the top 5 of the lower league for a chance of promotion. The story The president of the USA Donald Trump decided to change the league structure of American soccer. He didn't liked the fact that Mexico was always beating the American teams. His administration invented a new league structure based on only 10 teams. Competition Set-up 10 teams Trump League One 10 teams Trump Promotions League 10 teams Third Trump League 10 teams Fourth Trump League 20 teams Lower Trump League August start of main competition December start of the main cup January start of the transfer break February start of the promotions competition Trump League One Toronto FC, New York Red Bulls, FC Dallas, New England, Real Salt Lake, Columbus, Los Angeles Galaxy, Houston, San Jose, D.C. United Trump Promotions League Seattle, Philadelphia, NYCFC, Portland, Vancouver, Montreal Impact, Orando City, Sporting Kansas City, Chicago, Colorado Cups Most of the Trump Cup matches are played in December. The Trump Super Cup is played on 1st of August.
  18. Hi guys, I'm quite new here to this forum, but i'm kinda familiar with editing. I made several fantasy leagues in previous databases but one thing i always wanted to add to these leagues was the MLS system. With this i mean the different conferences, east and west. and of course the drafting. I would like to know if it is possible to add the drafting system for youth players inside a fantasy competition. I want to make a world league again where the teams on different levels need to draft their youth products instead of one date where all the new regens are taken in to the youth squads. By adding this drafting system i hope to make the competition between different teams more equal on the long run cause the every team can pick quality talent to strengthen their squad. I hope you guys can help me out on this one! PDD95
  19. I realize FM is mostly undocumented, but finding how to manage MLS sides seems particularly difficult. I know enough about the complexities of MLS rules to at least know I am not an expert. Three times I've run a team to the point when registration needs to be completed but I cannot get designated player designations or resolve other player classification problems. The messages in FM that suggest where to go to fix problems don't seem to match options in those screens. But wth the lack of FM documentation in general, it's easy to see how an option can be buried somewhere unexpected. Perhaps the goal of playing MLS is just to get past registration ;-) but that does make for short games/careers. In spite of the impressive modelling within FM the game this aspect of the interface is really detracting from the game and my rating of it for MLS is crashing. Any comments or suggestions on where to find out how to meet MLS requirements in FM? Cheers,
  20. Haven't played the game in a couple of years and was thinking about buying FM17...but first, I need three questions answered as I exclusively play MLS: 1. Does the salary cap increase with each year? The reasons I stopped playing the last game (14 or 15?) was due to the fact that the league's salary cap never increased, which ruined the desire to embark on any sort of long career with the game. 2. How does the game do with regards to Atlanta and Minnesota entering the league? Everything still work as it should, or do the new teams cause problems/errors/crashes? 3. Any terrible bugs/problems that I should know about? Thanks in advance!
  21. Hello, everyone. This is my first post and I am fairly new to FM and it's community. I have restructured the MLS and the leagues in the U.S.A in FM Editor so they act more like European leagues. The league works well although I would love it if I could play in CL and EL instead of the North American Champions League. I do not want to mess with country's coefficients and I am okay with my custom league entering UEFA with a coefficient of 0. Also, I simulated 20 years into the future and no lower league team established themselves in the top division. I know 20 years is not a long time, but if there is an obvious thing I am missing as an first time user of the FM Editor let me know. Please let me know how to fix these problems. Thanks!!
  22. This may have been covered already, but a couple of things I've picked up while editing databases in FM16 (I'm one of those editor nerds!) 1) Clubs to have multiple assistant managers. I've found that a lot of coaches are co-assistants, rather than First-Team Coaches. I know there is a capacity at some clubs to have more than one, but is it possible to have some more flexibility and realism in how many assistants each club has? - On a side note, let's add club doctors and kitmen to our staffing to make it more realistic. 2) MLS is ever expanding, and it is mighty difficult to programme the game to expand along with reality. Could there be a feature that allows expansion settings to be managed easily, either in MLS or any other league? Football is bonkers, so who knows what might happen. Appreciate any comments or thoughts about this too Bring on FM17! Sam
  23. I've been trying to use the advanced rules to do something very simple and it's proving to be so complicated. All I want to do is have the game name a team as champion of Major League Soccer. The way the game is coded, it only has a team named champion of MLS Cup, a sub competition of Major League Soccer. I want the game to name the team that wins that final game as champion of the competition Major League Soccer. I've converted to advanced rules and am overriding the code in the game. Now I know in my current setup there are a couple consistency errors in terms of conferences and stuff like that. But at the moment here is my basic issue. There are two teams that compete in the final match, there is a winner of that match, but the game will not name that winner as champion of MLS. Here's a screen shot of the Fate Actions for that final game. I've also attached my editor file. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. Any help is appreciated. test_7D391BBF-F5D8-4B06-8E4E-1D4156FA642A.fmf
  24. Does anybody know how to buy the extra non-young Designated Player slot? It was mentioned at some point during the offseason and now I desperately need it. I am still in the offseason if that means anything.
  25. They did this in last year's version and I see the same thing in this one. There's no champion ever determined for Major League Soccer. What they do is have a winner of MLS Cup, which is considered a separate competition. When you look at the MLS competition, it doesn't list who the defending champion is because there's never a "champion" of MLS, only MLS Cup. However, MLS Cup is just the name of the final game, it's not an actual competition. How do I edit the league so that the winner of MLS Cup is determined the champion of Major League Soccer? I can't seem to figure it out.
