What leagues would you like to see added in the future

There's a rights issue with regard to the Japanese league, yes.

Creating new leagues... well, it should be possible to reverse-engineer the game and find out how the existing leagues are created. (If people can create huge mods for the spaghetti coding that is The Sims 2, they can probably do it for any game.) Hmmm, maybe that's an idea. See if J.M.Pescado would be up to the task.

Has anyone from SI actually come out and said why they do not include the ability to add league via the editor?

I'd actually love to see more small countries in FM.. Faroe Islands, Malta and the likes..

Si should add an editor so users can create their own leagues. IMO its something they should consider for FM10.

I dont think they are going to add many more leagues to the game because of the lack of researchers or lack of sales in the target country not to mention the increased complexity of the game.

look, you have got everiting for research, like every year. in FM are almost all Bosnian teams, you just need to put them in League. Is that so hard? how you think to have good sales in Bosnia without their league.

If they decide to give us the maltese league i can be the head researcher and have a team of 10-20 men giving me the info.

i also agree with that guy that said about the facility to create league. That way ppl can share them and I bet that within a week we would have everyother league in the world!

If I am honest, fair enough there are a Cypriot team in the Champions League, but having watched a Cypriot game live, I can only say the standard of the teams in the bottom half is about equivelent to League 2. Not fantastic football.

I agree that the more realistic the better

However, the game would need about 1TB RAM to run and about 60TB memory left

This is not on my computer, and quite likely not on anyone elses either

I believe that the England leagues are fine

Although I would like some more African leagues (big nations only)

A rich-teams leagues would also be nice Uzbekistan(linked with Eto'o), Saudi Arabia(playing Zarate in 08 without signing) etc

I also believe that a league-creator in the Editor would be a great addition (FM10 maybe)

jsolloso: memory usaga depends on number of leagues that is loaded, not on noumber of leaguse that is playable.

EL-taylor and Danny: you want 15 englesh leagues playapble, but bosnias cant have first two or three??? (there is not owne rigts like on J-Legue :D )

Being honest, I'd be disapointed to see more European leagues added ahead of African and Middle Eastern leagues, as Europe already has massive representation, whilst these regions have virtually nil, and some strong teams playing in them. I'm not saying that I wouldn't like to see leagues such as the Bosnian of Cyprian leagues inlcuded, but I just feel that FM needs to get a much more balanced representation of world football, and not one that mainly centres on the European game.

adding non-european leagues is not connected with adding european. then can add european and african, asian.... at same time. i just tink that is unfair to not make leagues like cyprian, bosnian... whenm they have all teams. i cant understand that. because of that, people now must change other leagues to get leagues like bosnian, cyprian... it is easier to SI to add them. or at least make editor where is possible to add new league. thanks

A repeat: for leagues like Bosniam, Cyprian, Montenegrin, they have both players and teams, so they JUST need to build league (one hour of work)

I dont understand why they dont do this! (they have enough time to do this for FM09 :D )

And Qatar league would be great too.

In fairness to SI, if it were only one hour's work then I reckon we'd see a large number of extra leagues added year-on-year. I'm no coder, but I reckon you'll find it's more like a couple of days' work, plus research, per league. And by research I don't just mean player stats, but checking licensing issues, confirming the way that the leagues and cups work for unusual rules and for entrance requirements, maybe contacting the FA and clubs for certain information, etc etc. I'm sure if adding the leagues truly was easy then they'd be cramming them in.

I can assure you it is not one hour of work and is considerably more work than you might think.

The more the better. Specifically I would like to see the USSL, Uzbeki league and a good number of african leagues. Central america would be nice too. It would be great to see a truly global game!

@Ter: I know it is not one hour, but it is not hard for you to make league. If swaping Magyar and Bosnian League takes as few hours, it is not much for you either.

So can you tell as when we can expect Bosnian, Cyprian, Montenegrin... leagues? Thank you.

They won't be in FM09 anyway as Miles said that there are no new playable leagues.

I think implementing a league would be more difficult than you think but I think the main reason is down to lack of researchers.

leave researchers alone. any information they want, they know where they can get it ;)

Yeah the researchers do a great job but there is probably no specific researcher for say Bosnia, Cyprus, Montenegro etc.

You'd find that it's actually 24 tiers in the English system, that's about 140 leagues... Haha. But I reckon it'd be cool to start with a team say, the Wellington Wonderers.

It'll take a minimum of 24 years to be promoted from the bottom of the English system to the Premier League, that would be what you call LLM!

About 3/4 leagues down from the BSN/S so I can play as my local team , Consett :)

i'd like to see these leagues as well, i like the challenge it would present

-Ryman/Unibond/Southern Leagues (Prem AT LEAST)

-Some Oceania Leagues (NZ, ASA, etc.)

-Welsh 2nd Divs (Cymru Alliance, WFL 1st Div. - there are 2 leagues at that level)

-San Marino

-Vatican Clericus Cup lol (joke, but would be cool and I'd play)

-Canada

And I would also like Gibraltar to be in the database. They nearly gained UEFA membership (if it weren't for Spain) so we should at least have the option to make them a UEFA team ourselves.

Can I just add, I read that someone wants the Kosovar League. That may not be possible, due to the backlash it would recieve from Eastern Europe, and other countries that refuse to recognise Kosovo as a nation.

Rest of the lesser known European leagues in the Eastern bloc. These countries are great for scouting and picking up bargains when your not managing a 'big' team.

Apart from that would love to see the scottish amatuer and lower leagues included in it. Would be great to take charge of my local teams Bonnybridge or Dunipace Juniors and see how far I could take them in the Junior ranks and scottish cups. Plus you could send youngsters there to toughen up.

We've all seen how two Cypriot teams (Omonia and Anorthosis) have done fairly well in European competitions (Anorthosis Famagusta nearly qualifying for the knockout stages the better example, but Omonia nearly qualifying for the UEFA cup only to be beaten by Man City still a good example). So here's my question, why don't SI make the Cypriot League playable? Cypriot Football is growing, and Anorthosis will probably have another run in the Champions League next season, with Omonia, APOEL or someone else making a run in the UEFA Cup. If SI can put in random leagues like the Indian league and Singapore league, they might as well put in a league that is increasingly growing. I'd definitely love to manage one of the Cypriot teams myself.
