  1. The sole purpose of this fie is to expand the US/Canadian experience for Football Manager as close to real life as reasonably possible. And if I do say so myself, I believe this file is the most realistic USA expansion for any version of Football Manager. There are a lot of different ways to enjoy this DB file. Take over your local NPSL or USL2 club (like my Emerald Force SC). Start with at the youth level, including the MLS academy teams. Do a Caleb Porter and build a college powerhouse before taking on the professional game. You can even make like Marc Dos Santos and start in one of the Canadian leagues (including the new Canadian Premier League). Or, just start in MLS while the pyramid below helps develop players for your dynasty. USA: Major League Soccer: All default rules are still in place (salary cap, allocation money, contract types, All-Star Game, Drafts, etc). Beckham's Inter Miami and Nashville SC join the league in 2020, as they do by default. In 2021, Austin FC and Charlotte enter. The Charlotte MLS franchise has not announced their branding so I have just “promoted” Charlotte Independence from the USL Championship. In 2022 Saint Louis FC and Sacramento join to give MLS 30 teams. All of this expansion is consistent with real life. In my testing, the actual occurrence of the expansion drafts at the end of the 2020 and 2021 seasons are hit-and-miss. Sometimes they occur, sometimes they don’t. I can’t nail down why. Could be something to do with hard-coding. Also, I was able to get Austin FC to mimic the FM Parent Club-MLS Academy relationship using Chivas USA from the database, but Charlotte Independence, Saint Louis FC, and Sacramento Republic will not be able to sign Academy players like the rest of the league. United Soccer League Championship: The league plays in 2019 with the same 36 teams from real life. In 2020, Nashville SC leaves the league to join MLS. In 2020, Ottawa Fury and Fresno FC leave the league, as they have both folded. San Diego Loyal SC and Miami FC join in 2020. I have also rebranded Bethlehem Steel FC (Philadelphia Union II), Swope Park Rangers (Sporting Kansas City II), and Tulsa Roughnecks FC (FC Tulsa), as in real life. In 2021, Charlotte Independence moves to MLS, while Queensboro FC and Oakland Stompers join the league. 2022 sees Saint Louis FC and Sacramento Republic join MLS, while Rhode Island, FC Buffalo, Des Moines Menace, and Chicago join USLC. United Soccer League One: Lansing Ignite FC departs after 2019, and Inter Miami II, New England II, Union Omaha all join in 2020 and Rochester begins play in 2021. National Independent Soccer Association: This league forced me to make some tough calls. The league only plays in the fall of 2019 with the same 8 teams that began play in real life. However, Philadelphia Fury plays all of their matches (they forfeited the season after their first game). They will leave the league along with Atlanta SC (Folded) and Miami FC (USL Championship) starting in 2020. Chattanooga FC, Detroit City FC, and the Michigan Stars join for Spring 2020. NISA plays a Fall-Spring schedule, but this impossible to recreate properly when the other leagues play a Spring-Fall schedule. So I’ve formatted the league to have Spring and Fall seasons (each with a playoff), with an overall championship in the winter rather than the summer. NCAA: All 209 teams and 24 conferences are included. Set up to mimic real life as much as FM will allow. 21 of 24 conferences have tournaments, with all 24 conference champions gaining automatic bids to the NCAA Championship Tournament. Players selected for the MLS Superdraft will come from the NCAA. MLS Academy Division: The US Soccer Development Academy division has folded, however MLS has announced they will organize a competition for their league's academy teams. I have added a placeholder format until the actual setup is announced. Also now included is the Generation Adidas Cup, giving MLS Academy teams competition against each other and foreign youth squads. United Soccer League Two: Setup to reflect real life for all 2019-2020 changes. National Premier Soccer League: I am taking a hiatus on supporting the NPSL. This league, in my experience, takes away more from the game experience than it contributes. I can’t make the clubs function as they should do real life, and many of the clubs don’t even add staff or players anyway. So at least for now, there is no NPSL in the game. CANADA: SI has released an official version of the CPL. When I tried to add to the Canadian structure it threw the Concacaf competitions out of whack, so I decided not to mess with the Canadian league structure this year. I’d recommend SI’s DLC or yellowsweatygorilla’s file if you’re looking for added depth. Concacaf: Domestic Leagues: I have added the following central America and Caribbean leagues: Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, and Puerto Rico. I have also added the CFU Club Championship competitions, however, because I have left the Concacaf League and Concacaf Champions League as default, winning the CFU championships will not automatically qualify you for continental play as in real life. UNCAF Interclub Cup: Revival of this club competition for the 6 non-Mexico Central American nations. ADDITIONAL COMPETITIONS: These competitions are revivals of defunct competitions or modifications to enhance the FM20 MLS game experience. Copa Sudamericana: I have updated this file so that the finalists from the Concacaf Champions League qualify for the second round of the Copa Sudamericana. This used to be happen in real life and there has been some discussion to revive this so I set it up with this file. Pan-Pacific Championship: I revived this preseason tournament where the champions of MLS, the A-League (Australia), K-League (South Korea), and the J.League (Japan) compete in a one-off knockout tournament. International Champions Cup: Adjusted this competition so that MLS sends in an entry. INTERNATIONAL COMPETITIONS: USA January Camp: This adds the annual USA National Team January Camp, that culminates with one or two friendlies. It actually even seems to work as it does in real life with the focus being on domestic players. Pan-American Games: This is a U22 competition to help national teams from North and South America prepare for the Olympics. Copa Nuevo Mundo: Patterned after the Copa America Centennario (2016). It's a joint CONMEBOL-CONCACAF international tournament that takes place every four years in the USA. Not a real life competition. ADDITIONAL FILES: I've included a zip that includes some data files. There is a file which gives some of the Lower Level clubs in the USA their managers to start the game. There is also a file that adjusts the USA transfer preferences to make them more realistic. KNOWN ISSUES: As stated, it is unfortunately impossible replicate the MLS-Academy relationship with teams that are not hard-coded to have it. So Charlotte, Saint Louis FC, and Sacramento Republic will not be able to sign teams from their Academies as they should. Also, it is possible that the MLS Expansion Drafts following the 2020 and 2021 seasons may not occur. In my testing, they usually do happen but occasionally they do not. -Some USL2 clubs won't fill their squads. Some teams will always have only gray players. I've tried different things, but for now there seems to be no way around this. My guess as to why this is the case would be because in FM, clubs in the USA do not develop new players. All new domestic American players come through the Academy system whereas clubs in other countries' have a yearly youth intake. I can't say for sure why some semi-pro clubs don't just go sign free players, but I'd say it's related to the unique US youth system in FM. DISCLAIMER: I have NO idea how this file will mesh with other database files. If you have an issue, by all means report it and I will try to make it compatible but I can make no promises on that.

  2. I'm almost embarrassed to ask such a basic question, but I seriously cannot find a solution to this. I'm trying to create the lower divisions in the United States. I'm starting with the second division (USL Championship, but in the game known as United States Soccer League Division One). For some reason I can't get the competition to start. The database verifies, but when I run a test it doesn't begin the competition. I've tested the database in-game as well. When I'm selecting the active divisions, United States Soccer League Division One shows up. When I get to team selection and the actual game, the division is now gone. I know this must be something simple but for the life of me I cannot figure it out. Please help. test.fmf
  3. I'm trying to create the second division in the United States. In-game, the competition is known as the United States Soccer League Division One. In my file, there are 2 groups of 18 teams in Stage 0. The top 10 teams in each group qualify for a playoff for each respective group. Right now, the first group (the eastern conference) is working perfectly. The second group (the western conference), all the teams that are affiliated with MLS clubs as a B team or a II team are being bypassed for qualification league fate. I have no idea why. This isn't happening for similar teams in the other group. Anyone have an idea why? I don't have any options selected for B/Reserve teams to be bypassed. test7.fmf
  4. I'm creating the second division in the United States and I'm noticing that certain teams (the B teams for MLS clubs) show up with a rule that says they can't be promoted. Right now I'm working on the first stage of the competition which consists of two groups of 18 teams and the top 10 make the playoffs. After testing the comp and looking at the rules, for each group it shows promotion restrictions. I haven't set any promotion rules or restrictions. There is no promotion from this division. I'm having another problem with the rules and I think this might be the cause of it. Anyone know why these rules would be showing up? test7.fmf
  5. I'm trying to create the lower divisions in the United States. In this file I'm using basic rules editing. The second division (in game known as the United States Soccer League Division One) has two subdivisions (USSL Division One Eastern Conference and USSL Division One Western Conference). Each conference plays 34 games and then the top ten teams qualify for the playoffs. Right now, I have a championship layoff set in each subdivision with 10 teams supposed to qualify. However, when I test it, the game is selecting random teams for the playoffs, not the top 10 teams. Anyone know why this is? I've also noticed that the teams that are always passed over for the playoffs, even though they're in the top 10, are teams affiliated with first division (MLS) clubs. Not sure if this info helps at all. File is attached. USA basic.fmf
  6. I love playing in the MLS. With that being said, without the USL being active it is very difficult to keep your prospects training and fit. They only get gets during friendlies or US Open Cup. Can you please allow the MLS to increase the cap space as the years go by. It would be neat to see that if in 20 years, you can get it on the level of Europe's big leagues. Only way we can do that is if the league gains prestige and is allowed more money per team.
  7. Looking for help qualifying teams for a playoff. I'm creating the second division in the United States. The league structure is Stage 0: group stage, 2 groups, top 8 teams from each group qualify for playoff. Stage 1: playoff for group 1. Stage 2: playoff for group 2. Stage 3: final, winner of State 1 and Stage 2. The problem I'm running into is that when I validate is the error message that no teams have been found in Stage 1. It's looking for 8 but found 0. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Has anyone created a playoff in this year's editor? I feel like a lot of things that used to work in last year's editor are suddenly not working in this one. I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong. Any help will be greatly appreciated! PS - I haven't created stage 3 in the file I uploaded. I'll do that after I fix this problem. USA Update.fmf
  8. When I test my nation rules, I'm getting the error "Can't find enough teams from division. 32 found, 33 needed." There are 33 teams in the division. I've included a picture of the Required Teams portion of the nation rules. I've set the minimum to 32 and the maximum to 33. If I change the required min and max teams both to 32, it says it's found 33 teams and only need 32. If I change both to 33, it says it's only found 32 teams and needs 33. I don't understand what the issue is. Can anyone help? USA Update 2.fmf
  9. USA Expansion File Have you ever played an MLS save and wished that you could see highlights of players that you loan to your USL affiliate? Have you ever wanted to observe your Academy prospects? Have you ever drafted a player from a PDL club like the Mississippi Brilla and wish that it was from an actual NCAA collegiate program like in real life? Have you ever wanted to take control of your local amateur side, like the Knoxville Force, and try to beat your archrivals and win the league? That’s what this file is for. As much as possible with the limitations of the editor, we have tried to recreate a real life FM experience for the unique structure of the sport in the United States. All-in-all, there are over 600 playable teams in 8 levels of competition. Major League Soccer - This file adds Los Angeles FC and David Beckham’s Miami franchise (Inter Miami) to the 2017 expansion. Also added are MLS Rivalry competitions for NYRB-NYFC, LA Galaxy v. LAFC, and Orlando City v. Inter Miami. MLS teams will also prepare for the season in one of seven preseason exhibition tournaments (ATX Pro Challenge, Carolina Challenge Cup, Desert Diamond Cup, IMG Suncoast Pro Classic, Las Vegas Pro Soccer Challenge Cup, Simple Invitational, Walt Disney Pro Soccer Classic). North American Soccer League - Adds the announced future expansion teams in Orange County, CA (California Athletic FC) and San Diego (San Diego Waves). The league format is at it is in real life, with a Spring and Fall season. The two winners advance to the Championship semifinals, joining the top two qualifiers from the overall table (three if the same team wins both spring and fall). United Soccer League - Includes expansion side Nashville SC and Austin Aztex off hiatus. The league is split into two conferences (as in real life), with each conference having an eight-team playoff whose winners compete in the USL Cup. All 24 MLS clubs have affiliates in USL, so this is a chance to keep a better eye on developing players. NCAA Division I - 206 NCAA teams have been added. The format is as close as possible to real life. There is a spring season where teams can get a look at their players heading into the fall. The regular season consists of 9-10 non-conference matches to go with their conference schedule. As in real life, 21 of the 24 conferences will have a tournament that is set up to reflect the real life format. Each conference will send its champion, along with 24 at-large qualifiers, to the NCAA Division I Championship tournament to compete the national title. The MLS SuperDraft will draw players from the NCAA, as in real life, so MLS clubs can scout for future talent. Premier Development League - The PDL is set up as in real life, with 10 divisions that feed a 22-team championship tournament. The teams play a 14-match schedule during the summer. National Premier Soccer League - Also set up as in real life with 4 Regions divided into “conferences”. The four region winners advance to compete for the NPSL Championship. The teams play a 12-match summer schedule. United States Soccer Development Academy - The USSDA is divided into 7 Divisions. In all, 32 teams qualify for the USSDA Championship tournament. This is as close to how it functions in real life as possible, with the only difference being the schedule. It is impossible to run the league on a Fall-Spring calendar, so it runs a 30-match schedule on a Spring-Fall calendar. All MLS clubs have academies in the league, so if you manage in MLS you can see potential prospects from you academy. USASA Amateur Leagues - Six of the more prominent amateur leagues in the US have been included. The American Soccer League, American Premier Soccer League, Southern Premier Soccer League, Premier League of America, and the United Premier Soccer League are all represented as close to their real life format as possible, competing to earn a spot in the US Open Cup. Additional Add-Ons I have also included downloads for Club and Competition Logos, as well as Club kits. This will give every team logos and kits, and logos for every competition as well. (Included in my file are MLS kits that were originally created by kifla6 and downloaded from here: https://sortitoutsi.net/downloads/view/32059/usa-mls-ss2017-new-070517-not-sskcc-yet. Those kits ARE included in the download below, with permission from the author) Download (for version 1.3) - http://www.mediafire.com/file/atrsao41ao54jdh/USA_Expansion_Graphics.rar Update - Latest version 1.2 CHANGE LIST -Bug causing teams in the NCAA and the USSDA to send their players on holiday before the Championship Tournament has been fixed. The USSDA Championship stages will not only be visible in the USSDA Divisions, but the history will be viewable in the USSDA Championship Competition. -The USSDA Championship is now set up even closer to real life. The Group Stage will take place entirely at the large Grand Park facility in Westfield, Indiana. The Quarterfinal will be played at the club sites, with the Semifinal, Third Place Playoff, and Final played at the StubHub Center practice fields. -The recently-announced USL Expansion team Fresno FC has been added. Fresno FC and the 2 NASL expansion teams will now enter the US Open Cup in 2018. -There have been some changes to update some club and competitions graphics. The graphics are now in one file. Update - Latest version 1.3 CHANGE LIST -Fixed an issue where the NCAA teams weren't able to register players for their competitions. Now there is no registration required and they have a maximum team size of 30 -Adjusted the MLS league and playoff schedule to reflect real life -Adjusted the US Open Cup so that the regional draw is more accurate (not perfect, but MUCH better and closer to real life). I was also annoyed that the draw was occurring the day that the round was played when it should have been the day after, so I fixed that. -Added the new Las Vegas team to USL. They haven't announced their name/logo but there is a movement to revive the old Quicksilvers so that's what I went with, inspired by a concept designed by Raysox at SportsLogos.net -Added several rivalries to try and spice up the lower leagues a bit Disclaimers I cannot guarantee that this file will function properly with any other third party DB editor file. I use it with some and it works fine, but I have not tested it with every other file available. If you use a file that includes created competitions and/or clubs, then it will affect the graphics download and they will not work properly. Furthermore, if you use a file that fixes the names of competitions, then you will probably need to manually adjust it so that it doesn’t alter the names of the competitions in this file. I have a file that I fixed, but I cannot post it here because even without looking I’m sure it’s against the rules. I will post the file at other sites where I upload this database. Warning It should also be noted that if you select an NCAA team, the game will crash if you click on the competitions tab. This is likely because the NCAA D1 Soccer competition has 206 teams in it. Unfortunately this is a limitation of the game itself and cannot be helped without damaging the overall experience of the game. USA Expansion 1.3_90EDD1D6-0000-4DFB-9314-9B31364516F7.fmf
