[FM19] [Done] Wakanda Football League System (Fictional)

Recommended Posts

wakanda.png.336766d59a8d7eac9c065c0685b0fcaf.png

Hi, and welcome to my first ever FM Editor project; where I aim to bring Marvel’s fictional African nation of Wakanda to the world of Football Manager. I, personally, find myself fascinated by the idea of Wakanda as a theoretical nation-state. A never conquered land from a traditionally perceived backwater of the world, whose policy of isolationism throughout the ages found it barely even noticed by the world’s great powers suddenly opens themselves up and immediately finds itself among the wealthiest, most technologically advanced, and most powerful nations on Earth. It would be a massive shift in the established worldwide political status quo. And in this project, I imagine a world where Wakanda turns their sights on the beautiful game and creates a similar shift in the world of football.

My goals for this database are as follows:

1. Do not make Wakanda over-powered. I'm imagining that the ultimate goal of a save in this database would be to lead Wakanda to a World Cup title, which I'd like to make at least somewhat challenging.

2. Create as realistic as possible a football league system for a nation with the abilities of Wakanda.

3. Flesh-out the world by being true to the source material. I want most everything in Wakanda to in some way reference the source material from Marvel Comics. The clubs, the people, the awards; everything that I put in, I want to have a reason for.

And 4. Make it as good as I possibly can. There are aspects of this (graphics and logos) that I won't be able to really get to the level of quality that I would like, but I want everything I can do to be done well.

In this Database, I have:

Created the nation of Wakanda, replacing Sudan in the database (apologies to any Sudanese)

Set up 2 professional divisions in Wakanda, each composed of 18 teams

Created 38 football clubs, each with some reference to the vast lore provided by Marvel Comics

And created over 100 Wakandan players and staff scattered among the clubs, each named after a Wakandan character from the comics or movie

When playing this database for yourself, I highly recommend:
Adding Players to Playable Clubs (I was not going to create every single player for every single club so I am relying on the game to help populate the squads in the early going.)
Loading players from other African Nations. Ghana, Nigeria, etc. (That being said, the game doesn’t fill out the squads as much as I would like, so the early seasons can be challenging in terms of filling out a roster. Having more African players to sign will help alleviate that somewhat) 

Rules and Things to be aware of:
Premier League clubs are limited to 7 foreign players in the squad and only five in the playing 11. Wakandans are not the most xenophilic folks in the world. (I actual would ideally have this number lower, but it was proving frustrating in the early seasons to have enough players with the heavier restrictions)  
Wakandan Challenge League Clubs are limited to 5 foreign players in general.
The top 2 places in the Premier League of Wakanda qualify for the African Champions League. 3rd place and the winner of the Vibranium Cup qualify for the African Confederations Cup unless the cup winner has already qualified for the Champions League.
There are 2 Automatic Promotion/Relegation spots between the two leagues and there is a Promotion/Relegation Playoff between 16th in the Premier League and 3rd in the Challenge League (think basically Germany)


Here's a link to the Steam Workshop page for it https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1578023757

and here is the xml file if any of you wanted that instead Wakanda.xml

And here is the custom graphics pack I created for it. Wakanda.rar

But here is a link to a much better set of graphics done by @Mr Meeseeks that you probably want to use instead

 

 

Anyway, there’s my Wakandan Database, I hope you all enjoy playing it and feel free to provide any feedback you may have. I’d love to know your thoughts on how it turned out. Have fun guys!

P.s. I would like to extend a massive amount of thanks to the creators at Marvel Comics who have given me such a rich world to pull from. Specifically, Jack Kirby and Stan Lee (RIP to both of them) for creating the Black Panther character. As well as Don McGregor ("Panther's Rage" Jungle Action #6-24, 1973), Christopher Priest (Black Panther vol. 3 #1-62, 1998), Reginald Hudlin (Black Panther vol. 4 #1-38, 2005 | Black Panther vol. 5 #1-7, 2008), and Ta-Nehisi Coates (Black Panther vol. 6 #1-18,166-172, 2016) They were all very important and influential in my research and creation of the project.

Hey guys, I'm glad to hear there's some interest in this project. I just wanted to do a bit of an update: Leagues and things are working as intended and I've gone through and set up everyone's rivalries. I've also started work on inserting people into the various clubs and I think I'm pretty close to the final testing phases. In the meantime, I wanted to introduce y'all to the clubs I've created by giving you a bit of information and context regarding them. So without further ado, here are the 18 clubs that will be competing in the inaugural season of The Premier League of Wakanda.

______________________________________________________________________________

Alkama_large.thumb.png.1c3eec2afb40fd62987781bccde33b89.png

Club Name: Alkama United

Nickname: -

City: Birnin Kashin

Stadium: Kashin Stadium

Colors: Green | White | Light Blue

Rivals: Birnin Zana SC | SC Birnin S'Yan | Mena Ngai Sport Club

Blurb: Hailing from Birnin Kashin, a city in the Alkama Fields in the southeast of Wakanda, Alkama United are a club looking to assert themselves as a dominant force in Wakandan football. The Alkama region is thought to be a key piece in the equation that allowed Wakanda to flourish throughout the ages, and the people of the region carry a great sense of pride regarding that claim. Just as in history, the people of the Alkama believe that they will be the driving force toward any success Wakanda will have in the world of football, and Alkama United stands ready to lead that charge.

______________________________________________________________________________

Azzaria_large.thumb.png.fd309423102d54d7aaec55d0c03e25c3.png 

Club Name: FC Birnin Azzaria

Nickname: -

City: Birnin Azzaria

Stadium: Scholars' Park

Colors: Blue | Cyan| White

Rivals: J'Kuwali United | Hekima Shule FC | Golden City Panthers

Blurb: Birnin Azzaria is a young and progressive city in south-central Wakanda. And its premier football club is a perfect reflection of The Learned City's culture. FC Birnin Azzaria enters the inaugural Wakandan football season sporting a fast, exciting brand of football; and the supporters at Scholar's Park are hopeful that it will lead them to glory.

______________________________________________________________________

Benhazin_large.thumb.png.64c6e2cd3a3a850a60b1c10ff4ebf402.png

Club Name: Benhazin Sport Club

Nickname: -

City: Birnin Benhazin

Stadium: Benhazin Arena

Colors: Blue | Red | Yellow

Rivals: Djata Warriors

Blurb: Benhazin Sport Club enter the inaugural season as a bit of an unknown. They are the sole representatives of Birnin Benhazin, and the Southern Marshlands in general in the Premier League, and pundits across the nation remain unsure of what to expect from them. Most projections place the club as a bottom-table side, but if they can unlock some hidden talents of their region, they could be a surprisingly solid squad in the league. 

______________________________________________________________________

BWC_large.thumb.png.0d0ebf417e34adaa3db79baae15d996c.png

Club Name: Black Warrior Creek Football Club

Nickname: -

City: Black Warrior Creek

Stadium: Black Warrior Creek Memorial Field

Colors: Blue | Orange | White

Rivals: N'Jadaka Villagers | N'Jadaka Leopards

Blurb: Black Warrior Creek was the unfortunate site of a terrible massacre at the hands of N'Jadaka, a.k.a. Erik Killmonger, in the early days of his revolution. And while the people have recovered from that great tragedy, they have not forgotten, and thus harbor an intense hatred of the clubs from N'Jadaka Village. As the smallest club in the Premier league, Black Warrior Creek has their work cut out for them to make their mark on Wakandan football. But their passionate supporters will make the BWC Memorial Field a fortress, and a decent pool of local talent should ensure a standard of football that will leave their village proud.

______________________________________________________________________

Coal_Tiger_large.thumb.png.68d455561b5c607313587b8890c2a6aa.png

Club Name: Coal Tiger Sport Club

Nickname: -

City: Birnin Zana

Stadium: Birnin Zana Muncipal Stadium

Colors: Yellow | Black | Red

Rivals: Birnin Zana SC | Dora Milaje FC | Golden City Panthers | Paradise Forest |N'Jadaka Leopards | White Tiger FC

Blurb: Coal Tiger Sport Club is one of the 5 clubs that reside in Birnin Zana, a.k.a. The Golden City, the capital of Wakanda; and they enter the Wakandan football world as a club with great expectations. Drawing their name from a major clerical distinction in the Panther Cult, the primary religion of Wakanda, Coal Tiger Sport Club shapes up to be a force in Wakandan football. (Creators Note: Coal Tiger was actually an early concept version of the character that ultimately became the Black Panther. The concept and costume have used a few times throughout Marvel's publication history, typically in alternate universes or subtle easter eggs in the main continuity.)

______________________________________________________________________

Djata_large.thumb.png.01e7c2fbd787cb3f380fb12d8de8884e.png

Club Name: Djata Warriors

Nickname: -

City: Birnin Djata

Stadium: Djata Stadium

Colors: Pink | Black

Rivals: Hatut Zeraze SC | Benhazin Sport Club

Blurb: Though it is a major city in Wakanda, Birnin Djata often finds itself overlooked when discussing the major factors in Wakandan history, news, and politics. The cities premier football club, Djata Warriors, is determined not to be treated in the same way. Backed by a passionate, yet patient fanbase, Djata Warriors look to establish themselves as a strong force in Wakandan football. And certainly, never one to be overlooked.

______________________________________________________________________

Dora_large.thumb.png.705f76df8f7c911fbc1ef8825c1a7a23.png

Club Name: Dora Milaje Football Club

Nickname: The Adored Ones

City: Birnin Zana

Stadium: Upanga Stadium

Colors: Ruby | Bronze | Charcoal

Rivals: Coal Tiger Sport Club | Golden City Panthers | Zanariya Ancients | Midnight Angels FC

Blurb: Dora Milaje FC is another of the Golden City's 5 clubs. They are a club dedicated to the "adored ones," the Dora Milaje, the traditional elite all-female royal guard, and play their games in the honor of the Dora. (Creators note: If at all possible, I would make this club along with its sister club, Midnight Angels, women's clubs playing in the men's league, because that is 100% how it would actually be, but I can't do that in FM, so instead the clubs just have to be dedicated to their namesakes :( ) The club will look to live up to the reputation of their namesake as they employ a tough, hard-nosed, yet skillful brand of football.

______________________________________________________________________

Golden_City_large.thumb.png.77e5c1a7502c119b0f001d7c26541e52.png

Club Name: Golden City Panthers

Nickname: The Panthers

City: Birnin Zana

Stadium: Golden Stadium

Colors: Gold | Black 

Rivals: N'Jadaka Villagers | Coal Tiger Sport Club | Dora Milaje FC | Azzaria | Jabari United | Paradise Forest | Midnight Angels FC

Blurb: Golden City Panthers begins their journey as the expected front runners of Wakandan football. They set themselves up to be closely tied to the mantle of the Black Panther, though King T'Challa has no official involvement with the club or any club for that matter, and much like the Black Panther they look to rule over Wakanda (in a footballing sense of course).  The club finds itself embroiled in a strong rivalry with N'Jadaka Villagers as well as Jabari United, mirroring King T'Challa's personal rivalries with Erik Killmonger, and M'Baku (the Man-Ape) respectively.

______________________________________________________________________

Jabari.thumb.png.df06795ca1eec8734bb95b51d4a7e7ca.png

Club Name: Jabari United

Nickname: The White Gorillas

City: Jabari Lands

Stadium: White Gorilla Stadium

Colors: Brown | White | Light Blue

Rivals: Golden City Panthers | Paradise Forest | Crystal Forest

Blurb: Jabari United are the main club of the Jabari Tribe in the mountains of northern Wakanda. Outcasts for their worship of the White Gorilla Cult, and disdainful of modernity in the rest of Wakanda, some members of the Jabari elite intitially bristled at the idea of joining the football league. But with the establishment of Golden City Panthers as a club viewed to represent T'Challa, and Wakanda itself, those same elites relished at the opportunity to claim a small victory over T'Challa and the Panther Cult.

______________________________________________________________________

Kanda_large.thumb.png.b08c407cc9ffc91cab2ad519e8ccaa7e.png

Club Name: Kanda United

Nickname: The Mountain Men

City: Mount Kanda

Stadium: Kanda Stadium

Colors: Light Blue | Black

Rivals: Crystal Forest | Mena Ngai Sport Club

Blurb: Mount Kanda, in the north of Wakanda, is home of Kanda United and the legendary heart-shaoped herb that is said to grant the Black Panther his powers. And like the famed herb, Kanda United sees itself as the source of great power in Wakandan football moving forward.

______________________________________________________________________

Mena_Ngai_large.thumb.png.8d02f4b3f081dc058cdcdfe8d924d295.png

Club Name: Mena Ngai Sport Club

Nickname: The Miners

City: Mena Ngai (The Great Mound)

Stadium: The Great Mound Athletic Complex

Colors: Burgundy | Teal | White

Rivals: Adowa Ancients | Kanda United | Alkama United

Blurb: Mena Ngai, or the Great Mound, is a mountain in central Wakanda formed by a meteorite impact thousands of years ago. That meteorite was made of a rare and extraordinary metal known as Vibranium. And it is that vibranium and the mastering of it has lead and allowed Wakanda to become the global superpower that it is today. Mena Ngai Sport Club is a club created by the miners of Mena Ngai, and like those of the Alkama, the miners of Mena Ngai believe they are and will be the backbone of Wakandan success. 

______________________________________________________________________

Leopards_large.thumb.png.b6a9c3c0bb687ebdf69aeb9be83866db.png

Club Name: N'Jadaka Leopards

Nickname: -

City: N'Jadaka Village

Stadium: N'Jadaka Park

Colors: Gold | Charcoal 

Rivals: Black Warrior Creek | N'Jadaka Villagers | Coal Tiger Sport Club | Midnight Angels FC

Blurb: Seen as the little brother in their relationship with N'Jadaka Villagers, N'Jadaka Leopards are determined to prove that they are a strong contender in the league. Though that perception may be a result of the club deriving its name from Killmonger's pet leopard, Preyy. Regarless of their public perceptions, N'Jadaka Leopards seek to play an agressive, fast, attacking style of play worthy of a leopard.

______________________________________________________________________

Villagers_large.thumb.png.6ca3869ee5164fba23b8cfce46420e71.png

Club Name: N'Jadaka Villagers

Nickname: -

City: N'Jadaka Village

Stadium: N'Jadaka Park

Colors: Red | White

Rivals: Golden City Panthers | N'Jadaka Leopards | Black Warrior Creek

Blurb: N'Jadaka Villagers from the far southwest of Wakanda in, you guessed it, N'Jadaka Village are poised and intent on dominating Wakandan football. Taking a cue from their "Idol" N'Jadaka, the Villagers set out to be a ruthless and physical side, especially againt their rivals in Golden City. The club is expected to be a strong presense in the future of football in Wakanda.

______________________________________________________________________

Nyanza_large.thumb.png.8412ddf73aae90e70fa11b3b12c9d484.png

Club Name: Nyanza United

Nickname: -

City: Nyanza

Stadium: Nyanza Park

Colors: Navy | White

Rivals: Bako Ancients

Blurb: Hailing from the shores of the great lake Nyanza in the east of Wakanda, Nyanza United stands poised to begin their football legacy. Entering the inagural Wakandan football season in the Premier league, this team of local fishers and tradesmen, will look to cement their place in the league as a solid side behind their own brand of paitent football.

______________________________________________________________________

Paradise_large.thumb.png.5667dd9a6cabf703541758a5193eea82.png

Club Name: Paradise Forest Sport Club

Nickname: The Hunters

City: Birnin Bashenga

Stadium: The Stadium of Bashenga

Colors: Green | Gold

Rivals: Coal Tiger Sport Club | Golden City Panthers | Jabari United | Crystal Forest | Torment Forest

Blurb: Paradise Forest Sport Club is a club based out of the great city of Birnin Bashenga in the western foothills of Wakanda. In a city named for the first Black Panther, the founder of Wakandan culture and tradition, Paradise Forest and her supporters will feel a great responsiblity to set the standard for Wakandan football as well.

City: Birnin S'Yan

Colors: Black | White | Yellow

Rivals: Q'Noma Warriors | Alkama United

Blurb: SC Birnin S'Yan apply their trade in the northern edge of the Alkama region in the city named for the great regent of T'Chaka, his brother, S'Yan. In his time as regent S'Yan proved a capable ruler and SC S'Yan will look to carry on his legacy in the realm of football.

203197125_TChaka_large.thumb.png.22da9ad12a6f8c02008e17a1d0e13ba2.png

Club Name: Birnin T'Chaka FC

Nickname: -

City: Birnin T'Chaka

Stadium: T'Chaka Stadium

Colors: Purple | Grey

Rivals: Hatut Zeraze SC | White Tiger FC

Blurb: Birnin T'Chaka is a fairly new city in the north of Wakanda. Named for the great King T'Chaka, it's a city that some claim is searching for it's identity. Birnin T'Chaka FC believes it can provide something for the city to rally behind as they seek to be a strong contender in Wakandan football.

______________________________________________________________________

Tsauni_large.thumb.png.20d9a278189fc883be008c4e1a350124.png

Club Name: Birnin Tsauni FC

Nickname: -

City: Birnin Tsauni

Stadium: Sunset Arena

Colors: Hot Pink | Blue | White

Rivals: Kinamasi United

Blurb: Birnin Tsauni sits at the western border in the hills of Wakanda. For centuries, the people of the city have been charged with the protection of Wakanda from foreign invasion, and have helped maintain Wakanda's culture and way of life. The citizens of Birnin Tsauni feel they are the defenders of Wakanda, and Birnin Tsauni FC similarly believe themselves to be the defenders of Wakandan football.

______________________________________________________________________

And those are your 18 Premier Division Clubs, I'll do the same for the 2nd Division sides at a later date. Let me know if any of y'all have any questions about the project. I'd be more than happy to answer them.

hi @joltage just wondering if you're still on track to release this sometime this week? Was also keen to see the details for the second division teams, and wondered if there will be any work permit restrictions? Thanks

Would the winner take part in the African champions League?

I hadn't even thought of that, I hope so! I believe this file replaces Sudan, who irl  have two entrants into the CAF Champions league, both coming in from the preliminary round, so hopefully Wakanda will do the same. Winning this will hopefully also allow entry to the Club World Cup too?

Yes! I am on track. I'm thinking no later than the 29th for release. I'm just in the final testing phases, and am in the process of doing the write-ups on the 2nd division clubs. Post should be coming on that soon.

As far as work permits, they are supposed to be potential based in the initial application and then based upon first team appearances to renew them, though I'm not sure they're working as intended right now... More importantly, clubs in the Premier League, are limited to 7 foreign players in the squad and 5 in the playing 11, while Challenge League (2nd Division) clubs are limited to 5 in both instances. I initially wanted to have that number lower, but the game isn't really creating enough Wakandans in the load-up of a save so the first couple seasons were really rough in terms of filling out a squad. They're still kinda tough, but manageable. I highly recommend loading up players from other African nations to help with the early seasons.

39 minutes ago, Sankalan said:

Would the winner take part in the African champions League?

Yes, this was very important for me as well. The top 2 get spots in the Champions league, with 3rd place and the cup winner getting spots in the Confederations cup.

Have not checked the Club World Cup yet, though I don't see why they wouldn't qualify, as I haven't altered anything related to that competition.

Thanks everyone for your continued interest and patience.

Alrighty, as promised here comes your introduction to the clubs that will be starting in the 2nd division, a.k.a. the Wakandan Challenge League! Also, I forgot to mention this last time, but I obviously had to take some creative liberties when writing the blurbs for each club, so while they all have at least some basis in the canon, not everything is necessarily lore-accurate. Oh, and feel free to ignore my Sunday League level writing ability.

Adowa_large.thumb.png.a14acf30176bc8c8da1c316c7a46aa27.png

 

Club Name: Adowa Ancients

Nickname: -

City: Mena Ngai

Stadium: The Great Mound Athletic Complex

Colors: Maroon | Orange

Rivals: Mena Ngai Sport Club | Bako Ancients | Zanariya Ancients

Blurb: Adowa Ancients draw their name from a powerful, ancient duchy of Wakanda centered in the region around the Great Mound. The club starts their journey in the Wakandan Challenge League but will look to quickly establish themselves as a contender in Wakandan football and a reputation befitting their ancient namesake.

________________________________________________________________________

Bako_large.thumb.png.22a0adce3e397497a2a8328f267e49f8.png

 

Club Name: Bako Ancients

Nickname: -

City: Nyanza Village

Stadium: Nyanza Park

Colors: Orange | Dark Blue | Light Blue

Rivals: Nyanza United | Adowa Ancients | Zanariya Ancients

Blurb: Bako Ancients is a club formed by the descendants of the fierce Bako tribe of the shores of lake Nyanza. The tribe itself was among the first to grow and consolidate power in ancient Wakanda, and the football club will seek to write a similar story in the annals of Wakandan Football.

________________________________________________________________________

Zana_large.thumb.png.5b5c2bc7a8ffd8e7e3109b0834415711.png

 

Club Name: Birnin Zana Sport Club

Nickname: The Golden Lions

City: Birnin Zana

Stadium: Birnin Zana Munincipal Stadium 

Colors: Gold | Burgundy | White

Rivals: Coal Tiger Sport Club | Zanariya Ancients | Alkama United

Blurb: Despite lacking the prestige and cultural significance of the city's other clubs, Birnin Zana Sport Club sees themselves as the true representatives of the Golden City. The club positions itself as the club for the new, modern Wakandan. One who rejects the elitism of the old traditions and strives to succeed based on their own merit and ability. And Brinin Zana SC hopes that it can rely on their merit and ability to become the Golden City's premier football club. (Creator's Note: Wakandan traditions and culture are actually already weirdly merit-based. Technically, anyone can become Chieftain of Wakanda if they are successful in a challenge, and there is a challenge day for the throne yearly. Though I couldn't tell you if anyone outside of the royal family has every actually succeeded in usurping the throne (outside of Killmonger at least) so it kinda feels like a thing more for show than anything, which is the sentiment I'm kinda trying to get at in the blurb. Also, and this isn't really relevant to the project, just a fun fact, but the title of Black Panther and Chieftain/King of Wakanda are not mutually exclusive; they're just usually the same person)

________________________________________________________________________

Crystal_large.thumb.png.69bff003744b90ec7c9bd7820e35a49c.png

 

Club Name: Crystal Forest Sport Club

Nickname: -

City: Jabari Lands

Stadium: White Gorilla Stadium

Colors: Aqua | Purple | White

Rivals: Jabari United | Paradise Forest | Torment Forest | Kanda United

Blurb: Crystal Forest Sport Club draws its name from the icy forest of the Jabari Lands. It is a beautiful and deadly place, after which the club will look to model its football as the club begins its life in the Wakandan Challenge League. 

________________________________________________________________________

Zeraze_large.thumb.png.94262b00c9522462467d5a768cd0cfdc.png

 

Club Name: Hatut Zeraze Sport Club

Nickname: The Dogs of Football

City: Birnin Djata

Stadium: Djata Stadium

Colors: White | Charcoal | Lime Green

Rivals: Djata Warriors | T'Chaka FC | Kagara Rangers

Blurb: The Hatut Zeraze (pronounced hah-TOO sir-AH-say) is Wakanda's (sort of) secret police force. Under previous kings, the "Dogs of War" (English translation of Hatut Zeraze)  would carry out, let's say, unsavory tasks for the good of Wakanda. When King T'Challa took the throne he outlawed the Zeraze as he was appalled by their brutal tactics. But after reforms to their methods, the Dogs of War are back in operation and have decided to from a football club in an attempt to repair their image in the eyes of the Wakandan people. Hatut Zeraze Sport Club will operate out of Birnin Djata and compete in the Wakandan Challenge League. But only time will tell if their name will be as fearsome to opposing football fans as it is to enemies of Wakanda.

Hekima_large.thumb.png.7a4161a157973c50f086684bee86c75c.png

 

Club Name: Hekima Shule Football Club

Nickname: -

City: Birnin Azzaria

Stadium: Scholars' Park

Colors: Magenta | Blue | Light Grey

Rivals: FC Birnin Azzaria | J'Kuwali United

Blurb: The Hekima Shule is one of Wakanda's premier academic institutions and is part of the reason Birnin Azzaria has the nickname of "The Learned City." As both an attempt to build a greater sense of support around the community in Birnin Azzaria, and hopefully subsidize some of the University's research endeavors, Hekima Shule FC was formed and will compete in the Wakandan Challenge league as a professional football club. Only time will tell if the football club will be able to match the institution's academic prestige.

Club Name: J'Kuwali United

Nickname: -

City: Birnin Azzaria

Stadium: Scholars' Park

Colors: Cherry | White

Rivals: FC Birnin Azzaria | Hekima Shule FC | Q'Noma Warriors

Blurb: The J'Kulwali are one of Wakanda's many tribes that make up the country and are known for producing warriors among the most fierce in all of Wakanda. The tribe is spread largely throughout the country, with the largest community of J'Kuwali based in a suburb of Birnin Azzaria. This community of J'Kuwali have formed the football club J'Kuwali United and will certainly bring their fierce warrior culture to bear in their style of play as they begin their football life in the Wakandan Challenge League.

Kagara_large.thumb.png.fbc02bf0f835f2b43d64c3d39a6f78a8.png

 

Club Name: Kagara Rangers

Nickname: -

City: Kagara Village

Stadium: Kagara Stadium

Colors: Blue | Maize | Black

Rivals: Kinamasi United

Blurb: The people of Kagara Village in the north west of Wakanda have long been a football loving people and have jumped at the chance to make their mark in Wakandan football by forming Kagara Rangers. Because they are such a small village, they begin in the Wakandan Challenge League. But the club will be eager to establish themselves as a strong force in Wakandan football.

KMD_large.thumb.png.7705203822a5fe2ce4e6988cadfa2db0.png

 

Club Name: Kananna-MDogo

Nickname: - 

City: Kananna-MDogo

Stadium: Kananna-MDogo Park

Colors: Red | Black | White

Rivals: Makeda Villagers

Blurb: Kananna-MDogo is a seldom-talked about village in the east of Wakanda about half-way between Birnin Zana and the settlements along lake Nyanza. The village straddles the River of Grace and Wisdom and is actually a fusion of the two villages that existed on each side of the river*. Like the people of Kananna and MDogo came together to combine their two villages, they have also come together to form Kananna-MDogo FC and will compete in the Wakandan Challenge League.

Club Name: Kinamasi United

Nickname: - 

City: Birnin Benhazin

Stadium: Benhazin Arena

Colors: Yellow | Blue

Rivals: Salamanders FC | Kagara Rangers

Blurb: Birnin Benhazin in south of Wakanda part of a region known as the Kinamasi. A region  famous throughout Wakanda for producing some of the most skilled and accomplished craftsmen in the nation. Kinamasi United is Birnin Benhazin's second football club and will begin in the Wakandan Challenge League. The club has made it their mission to  represent both the city they are based in and the region from which their name comes with the pride and dignity that their craftsmen approach their trades.

Club Name: Makeda Villagers

Nickname: -

City: Makeda Village

Stadium: Makeda Field

Colors: Orange | Green | Black

Rivals: Kananna-MDogo FC

Blurb: Makeda Villagers hail from a small village in the southwest Kinamasi region of Wakanda bearing the same name. The village is among the smallest in Wakanda to have formed a football club, and as such, will begin in the Challenge League. The club has made it their mission to punch beyond the status of the village they represent.

Club Name: Midnight Angels FC

Nickname: -

City: Jabari Lands

Stadium: The Stadium of Angels

Colors: Blue | Grey | Bronze

Rivals: Dora Milaje FC | Golden City Panthers | N'Jadaka Leopards

Blurb: The special forces unit of the Dora Milaje, the Midnight Angels, have recently somewhat broken away from the Dora to take a more proactive role in protecting the citizens of Wakanda. When the citizens they've helped and protected learned of the creation of the Wakandan Football leagues, they decided to create a football club in honor of their new champions. Unlike their sort-of-but-not really sister club dedicated to the Dora Milaje however, Midnight Angels FC will begin their football journey in the Wakandan Challenge League. (Creators Note: Again, like I said with Dora Milaje FC, if it was in anyway possible, this would be a team of all women, and they would be badass and competitive in the men's leagues. But unfortunately, I cannot make this possible)

Club Name: Obodo Agha FC

Nickname: - 

City: Obodo Agha

Stadium: Alkama Park

Colors: Purple | Yellow | Black

Rivals: Q'Noma Warriors

Blurb: Obodo Agha FC are a small club from a village in the Alkama Fields and have the distinction of being the smallest club from the region. The supporter base of the club largely consists of the local farmers and herders of the region, and Alkama Park often serves as a place for citizens to meetup and trade their various crops and goods on game day.

Club Name: Q'Noma Warriors

Nickname: -

City: Birnin S'Yan

Stadium: Regent Stadium

Colors: Red | Blue | White

Rivals: SC S'Yan | Obodo Agha | J'Kuwali United

Blurb: The Q'Noma tribe are another one of Wakanda's many major tribes and they have gotten together to Q'Noma Warriors Football Club based out of Birnin S'Yan. Much like their long-time rivals, the J'Kuwali, the Q'Noma are known for their fierce warrior culture and their clashes with J'Kuwali should prove to be among the most intense matches in the nation.

Salamanders_large.thumb.png.383bd13a942986e12babe332b5417e06.png

 

Club Name: Salamanders FC

Nickname: - 

City: Birnin Benhazin

Stadium: Benhazin Arena

Colors: Green | Pink | White

Rivals: Kinamasi United | Torment Forest

Blurb: Salamanders FC is the third club of Birnin Benhazin in the south of Wakanda. The club draws their name from the salamanders that populate the marshes that exist around the city. They will open up their campaign in the Wakandan Challenge League but hope to quickly find themselves competing in the Premier League.

Torment_large.thumb.png.1a59bd6c01a63384275fb9de6d38d267.png

 

Club Name: Torment Forest FC

Nickname: -

City: N'Jadaka Village

Stadium: Echo Cave Arena

Colors: Blue | Green | Gold

Rivals: Crystal Forest | Paradise Forest | Salamanders FC

Blurb: Torment Forest is a dark forest in the southwest of Wakanda near N'Jadaka Village that the founders of the village's 3rd football club have chosen to name their club after. Very much an afterthought in the eyes of the local football fan, Torment Forest FC will have their work cut out for them in order to establish themselves as a force in Wakandan football.

White_Tiger_large.thumb.png.c0e7b39bf032f061fa126cb010c97ed1.png

 

Club Name: White Tiger FC

Nickname: - 

City: Birnin T'Chaka

Stadium: T'Chaka Stadium

Colors: White | Black | Teal

Rivals: T'Chaka FC | Coal Tiger Sport Club

Blurb: White Tiger FC operates out of Birnin T'Chaka in the northwest of Wakanda. Much like their rivals, Coal Tiger Sport Club, White Tiger FC derives their name from a major clerical distinction of the panther cult. Unlike Coal Tiger however, they must begin their football lives in the Wakandan Challenge Division and work their way up to relevance in the football world.

________________________________________________________________________

Zanariya_large.thumb.png.7f9ee5243c38a0aaae0b5837ad438cb4.png

 

Club Name: Zanariya Ancients

Nickname: - 

City: Birnin Zana

Stadium: Birnin Zana Munincipal Stadium

Colors: Neon Green | Black | Neon Red

Rivals: Dora Milaje FC | Brinin Zana SC | Adowa Ancients | Bako Ancients

Blurb: Zanariya Ancients is the 5th club of the capital city of Wakanda. Named for the original, ancient name for the Golden City, Birnin Zanariya, the Ancients will look to confirm themselves as the true team of the Golden City. Despite claiming traditional origins, the club's colors seem weirdly modern and artificial, perhaps as an attempt to gain favor among the young supporters of the nation. Whether or not that is the case, the best way to garner support is to achieve success on the pitch, and that is exactly what Zanariya Ancients will try to do as they compete in the Wakandan Challenge League in the inaugural Wakandan Football Season.

________________________________________________________________________

And with that, we are really close to release, guys. I just want to make sure everything is as good as I can possibly make it, so please do continue to be patient and bear with me. I really appreciate the support and I hope this project turns out to be everything you and I are hoping for. Stay tuned.

Hey @joltage, found a weird problem with the Wakandan Challenge League - some of my players are "ineligible to play due to being over the maximum age requirement for this competition"? Was this intentional, or has something gone awry? thanks!

I'm playing as Hekima Shule, if that makes any difference - could it be because they're a University side?

That's really weird. There shouldn't be an age limit. I'm jumping in to check on it now. Hopefully, I can figure out what's wrong. What age are the players?

Oh, that makes sense. Their max age is set to 24 so I guess that's intended. I can change it, cause I understand that feels bad, especially when you didn't realize. But I'd also kinda like to keep it that way because they're a University team.

 

Okay, I've thought about it. I'm removing their age limit because I think it feels too bad in the early stages of a save. In-universe reasoning: You don't have to be young to go to University and as long as you are enrolled in the Hekima Shule, you are eligible to represent the institution on the pitch. I'll have updated files up shortly.

The funny thing is, the over-age players were auto-generated by the game! I had three 28 year olds. I'd already seen that it wouldn't allow me to sign any other players over 21, but I assumed that I'd be ok with older players already in the squad, and plan to mostly bring players through the youth-team. Wasn't too worried until I came to play the first league game and saw half my best players were ineligible. 

Think removing the age limit is the right thing to do - Bidvest Wits from the South African top-flight are a fully professional University team, with players of all ages too so there's a precedent there - ta matey!

Yeah sorry about that. I've already gone and updated the workshop file and the xml file in this thread, so it should all be good to go now. Thanks for bringing that to my attention though. I don't think I would have ever realized that was an issue.

Hey, I hope everyone is having a great time playing in the world of Wakanda. Just wanted to bump this one last time to say I was able to find a way to develop a halfway decent looking graphics pack for the database. So, SURPRISE! Wakanda.rar GRAPHICS PACK! 

I made every one of these logos myself via designevo.com, and I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out despite my amateur ability. (Especially Golden's, Hekima's, and S'Yan's) Let me know if you guys have a favorite. Anyway, I hope this help make this project even better. I had a blast doing it.

Will this work with a current save, and how do I add them to my game? Hekima Shule is definitely my favourite, which is is lucky for me given thats who I'm managing

Yeah, it will be fine. All you need to do is extract the file into your graphics folder. (Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2019 > Graphics) If you don't have a graphics folder just create one. Then in game: go to preferences, click interface, turn off caching, clear the cache, and then reload the skin and everything should pop up.

Haven't tried out this database just yet but I love the attention to detail you've put in, great job! I'm a bit of a stickler when it comes to the graphics I use, and while yours are good for what you had available, I was inspired by your work to try my hand at whipping up a few alternatives of my own. Hope you don't mind if I post what I've got so far. Hoping to eventually get all the logos and kits done.

Thanks! The original looked to have an Ibis, figured I'd just stick with that. Included a Spurs inspired alternative in the alt folder.

Absolutely amazing job @Mr Meeseeks! They all look so great. Seriously impressive work!

 

Also, the bird was indeed an Ibis in reference to the Egyptian god, Thoth. I thought it worked thematically with him being the god of writing and wisdom, and Hekima being a university. Plus, the Wakandan religions are based on ancient Egypt, so it just made sense to me. Not that it matters, I just felt like sharing my design rationale here lol

No clue. You'll just have to check that out yourself.

@joltage i'm just curious how did you enable that teams from wakanda qualify for continental competitions in africa??

By replacing the nation of Sudan to create Wakanda, Wakanda inherited the continental competition slots of Sudan. Initially, I had intended to use South Sudan as the my base nation, but they don't have qualification slots in the competitions and I couldn't figure out how to give them any (they removed that feature from the 2018 version of the editor). So I switched everything to Sudan because they already had spots and it just worked.

First lot of kits are here! This pack contains all the kits made for the Wakandan Premier League. I'm hoping they'll look good in-game. Decided to make them more simple and as close to the base kits as possible to avoid way too much work.

Just extract the folder into the current 'Wakanda' folder sitting where your graphics are. So anyway, enjoy!
