Today's Hometown Challenge comes from EspressoCatPlays who asked for their hometown club of Rönninge/Salem Fotboll, a Swedish team in Division 6 (8th tier). As requested by EspressoCatPlays, I've boosted the facilities giving the club a good source of talent for your journey up the divisions. Shoutout to Sangue Blu for creating the database making the Swedish lower leagues playable! For the downloadable database see the links below:






https://i.ibb.co/VDKVG9M/AFC-Tottenham-1.png

Today's challenge features AFC Tottenham, the newly created supporters' club for Tottenham Hotspur! The club has an affiliation link with Tottenham Hotspur, making it much easier to loan players from them to help you rise up the divisions. My challenge for you is to use as many loan players and ex-players from Spurs to work your way up to the Premier League and overtake your big brothers in the top flight! For the downloadable database and logo, see the links below:





https://i.ibb.co/NL8chp4/Metalist-Stadium-Kharkiv.png


Today's challenge comes from Jordan Mason who requested Celtic & Rangers be put in the English Championship! Choose a side and beat your fierce rivals to the Championship title while building your squad to compete in the Premier League! For the downloadable database, see the links below:

https://i.imgur.com/WNfcGdO.png https://i.imgur.com/dtiirnq.png https://i.imgur.com/OccmueO.png
I made kits for the new club, feel free to use them if you like them


Nice, those look fantastic!
https://i.ibb.co/8sJ12fs/RB-Sunderland.jpg


Today's Red Bull Challenge comes from u/Rhysy34 on Reddit who requested Red Bull Sunderland! The goal of this challenge is to overtake the club's fierce rivals, Newcastle United, who have been given enormous finances as a result of the potential Saudi takeover! While Newcastle will spend big on older, high-profile players, your challenge is to use the Red Bull model of youth recruitment & development to rise up the divisions and beat your rivals to the coveted Premier League title. For the downloadable database and logo, see the links below:





Just downloaded this looking forward to giving it a go


Nice! Let me know how it goes!
https://i.ibb.co/DGLj8ZH/Odivelas.jpg


Today's Hometown Challenge comes from Guilherme Farinha who requested the now-extinct Odivelas Futebol Clube! I've placed the club in the 1ª Divisão da Associação de Futebol de Lisboa (6th tier of Portugal), giving them a reputation, morale, and facilities boost as well. I've also given the club an Underwriter sugar daddy to help keep the club financially stable in those first few years, though I've included a separate database without that option if you want to really test yourself in the lower leagues. The links for both databases can be found below. Also a big shoutout to Sangue Blu for the Portugal expansion database I used to build mine, the link to the original expansion database on the Steam workshop can be found below as well. If you have a hometown club that isn't playable in the base game or your hometown doesn't even have a club, feel free to leave a comment and I'll add it to the list!






So you've basically hijacked this Forum with your challenges now?


It's an open forum. Sorry I'm the only person who seems interested in sharing challenges I guess..? Feel free to contribute something.

Today I've got a Revival Challenge for you guys, a challenge that involves bringing a once great club back to greatness! The first club we're looking at for this challenge is Kickers Offenbach, who became the first club outside the Bundesliga to win the German Cup back in 1970 and subsequently uncovered a massive scandal involving bribes & payoffs in German football. They have since fallen down to the 4th tier of the German pyramid, but with their contributions to the integrity of German football as well as their record-breaking cup run of 1970, they present an interesting challenge. Can you secure the German Cup for this club once again? For the database expanding the German pyramid, see the links below:




https://i.ibb.co/VLbrWLc/Mitte-Berlin-TN.png


Today I've got another Embassy Challenge for you guys featuring the fictional FC Mitte Berlin, a Russian club set to compete in the German 3. Liga! The club is located in Mitte, the central borough of Berlin where the Russian Embassy resides. As the club is based in Russia, the youth regens will come through as Russian and the club philosophies include signing Russian players and developing players using the club's youth system. The club is owned by Vladimir Putin and sponsored by the energy corporation Gazprom so your financial support will be relatively high, though unfortunately it seems the 3. Liga clubs start without transfer budgets regardless of any editor changes. With nearly 3,000,000 Russian citizens living in Germany and 300,000 living in Berlin you've got a large, passionate fanbase to build upon as you rise up the divisions. I also have some custom kits for this challenge! For the database, logo, & kit downloads see the links below:

https://i.ibb.co/74BY4sz/Burgess-Hill-TN-2.png

Today I've got a challenge designed just for you guys, the Hometown Challenge! If your hometown club isn't playable in the base game or you live somewhere that doesn't even have a club, drop a comment and I'll make a custom database for you! If your club is in the base game but you want me to make some changes, feel free to suggest those as well! I'm welcome to any suggestions.

For the first Hometown Challenge I've edited a database enabling the English lower leagues and adding an Underwriter Sugar Daddy to Burgess Hill Town F.C., an 8th tier club with a long history devoid of top flight football. It's up to you to change that and drag them up the divisions for the first time in their history. If you're interested in the challenge, see the links below. If you have a different club in mind, let me know!




https://i.ibb.co/YZftPKz/Red-Bull-Paris-TN.png

Red Bull have acquired Paris FC to apply their winning formula with the hopes of overtaking PSG! Finances, facilities, & Sugar Daddy have been increased, with the 50,000-capacity Red Bull Arena set to be constructed in 2022. Custom kits also included!

https://i.ibb.co/K50L9gB/Bury-AFC-Thumbnail.jpg


Today we're looking at another phoenix club, Bury AFC! This club was formed as the unofficial, fan-based successor to Bury FC who were expelled from the Football League before the 2019-20 season for serious financial troubles. The club is set to compete in the North West Counties League Division One, the 10th tier of the English pyramid, so you've got quite a long challenge ahead of you if you decide to give it a go. The Shakers will compete in the old Bury FC stadium, Gigg Lane, in the game despite their current stadium-share with Radcliffe. With over 1500 season ticket holders, you'll likely have plenty of income from gate receipts to carry you up the lower divisions over the first few years of your journey. If you're interested in trying out the save, check the links below:









https://i.ibb.co/pxWQ63P/4-20-Challenge.png


Happy holidays y'all! Today's challenge is a 4/20-themed challenge featuring a newly-created League One side, Bristol Cannabis Club! The Tokers will play their matches in the 42,000-capacity roof-covered Hotbox Arena and train in the 420-capacity Reefer Road training ground. You have a budget of £420,000 to start, but you'll have to fill out an entire squad as I haven't added any players with the editor. The club's affiliated with Las Vegas Lights FC, who became the first professional sports team to partner with a cannabis business back in 2018. For the downloadable database & logo, see the links below:









https://i.ibb.co/fFbrVTN/Untitled-6.jpg


Today's challenge is a result of the recent takeover rumors regarding Newcastle United F.C. and Amanda Staveley's PCP Capital Partners, a large share of which is owned by Saudi crown prince, Mohammad Bin Salman! As such, I decided to create a database giving them a foreground sugar daddy and making Amanda Staveley the club's new chairwoman. I also did a simulated experiment to see how the club would progress organically, with the club finally grabbing their first title in over a century under Julian Nagelsmann in 2032. My challenge for you is to win the title before 2032 using the club's newfound riches! For the downloadable database, see the links below:

https://i.ibb.co/Zmt32hG/DC-Logo-3.png


I've got a very special challenge for you guys, the DC Challenge! I've created Gotham City F.C. & Metropolis Meteors F.C., based on the DC Comics cities notoriously home to superheroes Batman & Superman! Gotham City F.C., owned by billionaire Bruce Wayne, and Metropolis Meteors F.C., owned by the much less affluent Clark Kent, are set to compete in the MLS in 2021 as rivals. As such, you'll need to simulate to 2021, but with only the MLS loaded, that shouldn't take long! If you're interested in testing your metal in the most confusing league in the world, check the links below for the database and accompanying graphics, as well as a guide on how to install them!

The Successor Challenge involves taking over the successor to a once great club and bringing them to the heights of the aforementioned club and beyond!

The club I've chosen for the first part of this challenge is F.C. Metalist 1925 Kharkiv, successor to the once third-biggest Ukrainian club, F.C. Metalist Kharkiv, behind only Shakhtar Donetsk and Dynamo Kyiv. With a population of over 1.4 million people, Kharkiv is the second-largest city in Ukraine and the second-largest city in all of Europe without a top-flight team of its own. As such, you have a massive fanbase to build upon, so it should make for an interesting save! If you're interested in trying out the save, all you need to do is select the Ukrainian First Division at the beginning of your save and choose F.C. Metalist 1925 Kharkiv, as there's no custom database needed for this challenge. However, if you'd like to expand the Ukrainian pyramid down to the Third Division, I've included a link to a custom database that includes that expansion. Check the links below!

Today I've got a challenge for you based on a story I was doing on my YT channel before I decided to focus on challenge videos, Red Bull Liverpool! Red Bull have expanded their grip on the football world with the acquisition of Tranmere Rovers as they intend to apply their winning formula to compete with their local rivals, Everton & Liverpool!

Hey guys 👋 I just started a new community on Reddit called r/fmchallenges for sharing interesting save/story/challenge ideas. If you’re interested in joining go check it out and feel free to share any cool ideas you may have!
FM 2020 Challenge | Nine Elms United F.C. | The Embassy Challenge

https://i.ibb.co/hRJDcp2/Untitled-4.png

Some of you may remember this FM 2019 Story, where I created an American "soccer team" and placed them in the English football pyramid to improve the level of U.S. "soccer" by bringing through mostly American talent. I decided to revive the old club in FM 2020 with the editor, with a few small tweaks! I also created a new logo for the team, and put them in the Sky Bet League One, replacing Bury rather than the competing in the Vanarama National League. If you're interested in giving the save a go feel free to download the custom database below! If you're interested in trying this challenge with a different nationality club in a different foreign country, go ahead and watch my challenge guide on how this can be achieved!

Today I've got a different sort of challenge for you guys. This one involves creating a club based on a selected embassy from anywhere in the world to compete in the foreign country that the given embassy resides in! I created the American club Nine Elms United F.C. to compete in England to improve the level of U.S. "soccer," but feel free to create your own custom team wherever you want! If you'd like to try Nine Elms, check the links below!

After our playoff disappointment, I’m considering putting this save on hold and rebooting it down the road to focus on other content as there’s just so many FM content creators doing stories on YouTube. I feel like too small a voice in such a big crowd, might be worth focusing on my challenges/experiments for now. Any thoughts?
Well you've gotta aim high, I guess! I suppose you'll just have to get as much grassroots experience as you can and take any opportunity to worm your way into the coaching side of things. I wish you luck anyway!
For me it's currently definitely a hobby - I love the mental side of it, and I love to work with people. I coach a group of lads here and will be doing my initial coaching badges with the local FA in the next year, alongside my full-time job. Then its just a case of staying ambitious and seeing what opportunities come my way, I guess!


Yeah sounds like you've got a good thing going there! To be honest I'll probably just try to work towards a career in football journalism rather than coaching as that seems more tailored to my skills, but who knows!

I've got a challenge for you guys based on Netflix's new period drama series "The English Game," revolving around the now-extinct working-class club Darwen F.C. The end-goal is to win the FA Cup with them using their classic 2-3-5 control possession tactic, and you start with 4 of the players from the show, Fergie Suter, Jimmy Love, Tommy Marshall, and Ted Stokes! I've linked my YouTube video describing the full challenge to the image above. Enjoy!
