Promoting from NPL using secondary divisions

Recommended Posts

I am creating a league of Danish, Norwegian and Swedish teams. The lowest playable league is the third tier, which has three teams relegated. I would like the teams promoted from the non-playable fourth tier to the third tier to be one Danish, one Norwegian and one Swedish.

I've sorted all teams in three secondary divisions, identifying their nationalities, but I can't figure out a way to use it in order to promote one team of each nationality.

If anybody knows how, I would be very grateful!

you can set 3 lower divisions - separate for every nation. set 1 fixed promotion spot in each division and thats it.

I couldn't figure out how the relegated teams were supposed to enter the right division by your suggested system, but you gave me the idea doing something similar, so thank you!

The 3. tier has 42 teams which by season start are divided into 3 groups by latiture (followed by joint promotion play-off).


I just mimicked this system in the lower league, so that the 162 teams are divided into three groups and one team from each group is promoted to the 3. tier. This doesn't exactly course one team from each nation to be promoted, but it makes it far more equal than before.

you can set 3 child divisions instead of 1 single. its simple

But how will the relegated teams then distribute themselves to the child divisions?

I've used Denmark as nation for the competition. All teams from Norway and Sweden are now in the Danish league system.

Then its not problem to set regional divisions for all teams.

So I've set regional divisions for all the teams and when they are relegated to the lower division, they end up in the correct child division.

However, I still don't get one team from each division/nation to promote.

The lower division has three child competitions. I've tried to have one team from each to be promoted by making three rounds in the lower division. They get teams from each child competetion with one promotion place, still the promoted teams seem random. Like 2 Norwegian and 1 Swedish.

Here it is. In this version I've tried creating rounds for each child division with individual promoting places, but in-game it stil doesn't result in one team from each nation/child division getting promoted.

Your solution with using regional division settings for the relegated teams works. My only problem now is that I can't make it so that 1 team from each child division/nation gets promoted from Scandinavian Leagues to Skandinaviske 2. Division. Thank you so much for looking into it.

I have tried somehow making a round under the main division Scandinavian Leagues, which takes the qualified team from each sub-leauge and has three promotion places, but I still get the same results. It might be an idea though.

yeah - maybe best is to add leagues as playable

I also thought about that, but I guess, I would end up with the same issues in those divisions. But thank you very much for trying to help.

No if you set leagues as playable - everything will be ok

Indeed, it works now with your suggestion. The fourth tier is playable but without any teams relegating from / being promoted to it. I just choose not to have it playable when I set up my game. Thank you for your help.

Have you tried using "Preferred Lower Division Teams For Promotion" under competitions? Set one for each regional division, give minimum teams 1, maximum teams 1.
