[FM20] United States - Tier 9 Pro/Rel Database

Recommended Posts

Turning the USA into a football pyramid, I have worked on getting the USA to mimic the English Football League system. 9 tiers in the pyramid for you to enjoy.

United States League Cup

  • Open to all teams in USA Football League (USAL2 and up)

United States National Cup

  • Open to all teams outside of USA Football League (Under USAL2)

United States Community Shield

  • Preseason cup with FA Cup winner and Premier League champion

    
This database took me about 3 months to plan and develop and has just under 7,400 changes. All teams are in the FM Database with the exception of one. I changed one as an homage to the inspiration to my story behind this database. Info on that coming soon.

If you want to edit the database yourself, please feel free to do that. Just know there are issues with the validation system and it will give you an error saying "There are only 23 of 24 teams for stage 0 in the USA Championship". This is normal and if you keep attempting to validate, it will eventually pass.

v1.0

  • Created 9 tiers
  • Created new cups

v2.0

  • Revamped to fix issue with no Youth Intake
  • Renamed United States Lower Leagues and National Lower Leagues to remove word Amateur
  • Added Promotion Playoffs to United States Lower Leagues and National Lower Leagues

Thank you. I was torn as to what to do about them. I left them but put in different leagues according to reputation. They can't be in the same league as parent obviously so it does setup some weird scenarios. I hope you enjoy it.

I tested this out and I can tell you put a lot of thought into this. I did come across a few issues.

A lot of teams in the lower leagues have transfer policies that prevent them from signing players over 23. If you're trying to mimic the English system, they do not have these restrictions.

Some of the affiliations prevent a team from being promoted if the senior team is in a league ahead. In England, the link will be terminated, but in this file, the team is just not able to be promoted. I'd recommend removing all affiliations, except B teams.

In the first couple years, the leagues are very unbalanced. I would adjust the starting leagues to balance it out. 

You may want to adjust the attendances, because there's teams as high as league one that only has average attendances of 100.

I was really excited about a multi-level USA structure with promotion/relegation (because a static league structure just isn't rewarding to me), but my hometown team is in the Atlantic National, and we're 1800 miles from the Atlantic. I'd have to move around about 200 teams and input stadiums and I'd probably screw it all up...yeah, I'm probably going to start editing, I gotta get my FC Wichita to the top.  

 

oh, and the player contracts expire 1/2/1900.
