My defence is very smart!

Playing as Wrexham in League 1 and they actually became the best defenders in the league that season (2026-2027) :

Beginning of 4th season, 2nd season in Prem, supporters only got to do a 140 mile round trip for each home game! Surely Bournemouth or Brighton would have been more suitable or Southampton! 😉😂

I assume that the game is programmed to not ground share with rivals.

That wouldn't make sense though. It happens all the time in other nations, and are you really going to tell me if one of Dundee or Dundee United were to redevelop their stadium they'd play in Glasgow rather than across the street?

Not so funny, but with no place to think of posting this ( i know about the career update tread, but i have no plans of making several updates of  this save). Just wanted to share my incredible run in Europe in the first season with F91 Dudelange from Luxembourg:)

Then I stand corrected. I haven't had a groundshare in any of my saves so I assumed it was the case.

No, but then the Scottish Premier League doesn’t have a minimum seating capacity requirement of 12,500.  The EPL does.

Gretna were forced to play at Motherwell when they were promoted into the SPL, due to ground-grading.

Didn’t know that. Still seems weird they wouldn’t go to Southampton or Bournemouth, both of whom clearly must meet the requirements as current PL clubs.

That rule doesn't exist anymore, it vanished when the league system was restructured to involve non league football in 2013.

I'm with Boston in the Premier League, playing at Nottingham Forest's City Ground. Thing is, they have moved out into a new stadium, and my owners have since bought the ground! But we're still attempting to build a new stadium (back in Boston), but the local council keeps blocking it...

Didn't realise I had kit textures in the wrong order, fixed it after the match started and somehow only a few players changed their kits to the correct (grey) ones

And from the same match, my team did a good job scoring two goals very quick in succession

It's not even the end of August and apparently I've had a disastrous season (ok so I had a poor start after relegation hardly surprising considering my first team squad had half of the decent players cherry-picked on the cheap due to relegation clauses). I could understand getting that message if it was April but in August!!!!!

A bit low on leadership...

Can you re-train him as goalie? Wouldn't mind finding out what his aerial ability is like.

On my Salford City save last year I spent around 5 years in the Ethiad (much more sensible distance) as every time the stadium expansion was finished I requested it again. I'm not sure Man City would allow a team to ground share for 5 years IRL, especially as I became their biggest rivals in the league!

The game does struggle to cope with Stadium building and expansion from my experience.

I've just been promoted the Premier League with Torquay United and as my 6,200 capacity stadium isn't quite up to it I'm getting a new 18,500 capacity stadium built which is taking just over a year. Where will I play in the meantime... Bournemouth, it's a 212 mile round trip and Will take 2 hours 40 minutes each way. Can't drive? Well the terrible rail links to Bournemouth from Devon means it will take you between 4 and 5 hours each way!

Worst I've had by far! :lol: Ashton Gate or even Home Park would have been much better choices!

@Robioto @Frogmore Frog forget building a new stadium...just because my stadium wasn't up to snuff for the Champions League, when I had a Tromsø save on the go we played our CL "home" games in Brann's stadium in Bergen! 

1200798275_Screenshot2019-05-24at21_22_17.thumb.png.84db466d0158df7c22905995ceb7bffb.png

We were selling it out too, although I guess if a Norwegian club got to the CL semis a lot of neutrals would want to attend.

If the council hadn't vetoed our new stadium I would have hoped we'd play our domestic home games at Bodo/Glimt's stadium ("only" 333 miles away) but I wouldn't be shocked given your experiences if we'd have effectively just become Bergen's second top flight football club for a while.

Crazy ground sharing! I’m back at Fratton Park now.......Bournemouth now renting stadium from us for there home games as the Vitality isn’t up to standard for the Premier League, far more sensible option distance wise!
