Hi everybody. I'm currently working on a big project for Football Manager 2020 that was inspired by the many clubs complaining about too many games in a season. I had this idea to abolish the League Cup and then create county cups where the 2 biggest teams from a county only come in from the semi final but where it could include from the start of the competition teams right from the lowest reaches of the English football system. So I started on this project. I worked out the maximum number of games for a Premier League team with this system (includes abolishing FA Cup replays) has dropped from 74 to 65. Anyway here is what I've done so far. Will include some screenshots shortly. LEAGUES Premier League (20 Clubs) EFL First Division (20 Clubs) EFL Second Division (20 Clubs) EFL Third Division (20 Clubs) EFL Fourth Division (20 Clubs) English Football Conference (24 Clubs) English Football Conference North/South (24 Clubs Each) English Isthmian/Northern/Southern League (3 Sub-Divisions, 24 Clubs Each) LEVEL NINE TO ELEVEN - ENGLISH REGIONAL LEAGUES (20 TEAMS EACH LEAGUE AND EACH TIER) Dumnonia League East Anglia League East Mercia League Kent & Sussex League London & Essex League Northumbria Red Rose League Northumbria White Rose League West Mercia League Wessex League LEVEL TWELVE TO FOURTEEN - ENGLISH REGIONAL 2 LEAGUES (20 TEAMS EACH LEAGUE AND EACH TIER) Yorkshire League LEVEL FIFTEEN TO SEVENTEEN - ENGLISH COUNTY LEAGUES (20 TEAMS EACH LEAGUE AND EACH TIER) Humber League North Riding League South Yorkshire League West Yorkshire League LEVEL EIGHTEEN TO TWENTY - ENGLISH DISTRICT LEAGUES (20 TEAMS EACH LEAGUE AND EACH TIER) WEST YORKSHIRE (Bradford District League, Calderdale League, Kirklees League, Leeds District League, Wakefield District League) REGIONAL CUPS West Riding Cup (West Yorkshire) As you can see still early days but I'll make further posts and post screenshots as more development is made.
