Thank you for this update!

Started with Paris FC and thanks to this update the B team is playing in a real league (CFA2). My u19s do not play in any league at all, same goes for the U19s in other leagues (except for Ligue1). Is this right?

It's correct.
When we publish our 9th level (PH), the U19 will have their championship ;)

It will be unprecedented

I download this mod every year. Glad this and Belgium are finally up! Can't wait for Level 9. :D

At least with this mod France is playable. Always hated the CFA being disabled in vanilla.
