The Colina de Rivera Challenge

Using the Uruguay (6 divisiones) database file that you can find browsing online, I decided to try and get an unknown team of my country to the top-flight and reach success… I chose Piriápolis FC and we were champions of the Fourth División everything's sweet and all… but this isn't my story, you see. After getting promoted, I decided to check the Tercera División, to see what I'd be up against. And there I found it, the most depressing football club in the (fictional) world - I present to you the Club Deportivo Colina de Rivera:

 


They sport a nice 100% official matches lost, an astonishing 148 goals against and 6 goals in favour. This being almost incredible, I decided to share this save online, to great reception (thanks!), and some people were interested whether I was going to manage them back up or if they could have the save to do it themselves. Since I've grown some sort of link with my Piriápolis FC club and want to have them go all the way up, I'm giving you the chance to fix Colina de Rivera.

 

The challenge is simple:
 

  • Place the attached file in ./Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2021/games
  • The game begins on January 2021 with no Managers whatsoever, since I “resigned” to let you have this save.
  • You have to create a Manager and add them to Colina de Rivera, who are still in the Tercera División of Uruguay since the leagues haven't been restarted yet.
  • Try to fix their meager semi-pro squad and see if you can go straight back up; and who knows, maybe go even higher.
  • Have fun, and if you want, you can share your results. I might even create a small Leaderboard.

 

Good luck!

Now that's what I call a challenge! 🙂

I've done okay in the past in small (mainly) English clubs and other underdog teams, but I don't think I'm ready for this one yet. Thanks for sharing this amazing story and experience, though. Would be interesting to see/read about someone taking this challenge on.

May well have a look at this myself later, getting bored just managing in the same countries all the time.

Took me bloody ages finding them, for me it says they're Segunda Division B.

Perhaps it's to do that the save was created with that custom database I had mentioned? I don't know, perhaps it's needed for everything to work as it should…?

It's not a problem as leagues are named correctly in game, was just when it came to picking the team.
