Tried Searching Cannot Find The Answer. League Start Dates.

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I've tried searching through this site and through google to access the other FM sites, but I have had no luck.

Has the title suggests I'm trying to find out what the specific dates are for the league starting points, I want to increase the preseason period on a new save. The drop down menu shows the months but not the day. So, does anyone have a list or know where a list can be found of these dates?

Thanks in advance.

Short of going to the league select screen then ticking the league checking the date and unticking again, although there are such things for regen dates and such like so you might find a list on the forum somewhere if you look carefully enough.

the thing what i wanna do is this: i wanna start a season with fc kopenhagen. but i don't want it to start in summer i wanna come in in the middle of the danish season and pick up a struggeling fc kopenhagen. this i can easily do by just choosing a december start date. but if i do that the swedish, norwegan and finish leagues for example haven't been simulated. its just as if they didn't play for an entire season... and i don't really want that. any advice on how i can change that?

i hope u know what i meen?!

p.s. i chose the startdate of malaysia (which is dec. 10th in fm 2014) and its as if the swedish league didn't play a single game...

All I can suggest is loading the game with the Danish start date, adding an unemployed manager to the game, send him on holiday until 10th December then when you return retire that manager and add yourself. Should help simulate all leagues (I also noticed that a few Scandinavian leagues weren't being simulated when attempting something similar).
