For a fourth time, on behalf of the Austrian Research Team, I invite you to explore the deepest depths of the Austrian soccer rabbit hole. I wish you a lot of fun.
The Austrian 2. Klasse (B) (Burgenland) consists of 3 competitions (North, Central, South) since this year. On the federation website there are only match dates listed until November 15, none in 2021. Therefore, I take the best 2 teams from each league and have them play each other three times in a 6 team league in the spring to decide who will advance to the 1st division. Like last year, I have adapted the youth leagues again, from the more than full schedule of the U18 teams became a state internal "Nations" League (built the same as the Nations League). So you save leagues compared to FM19 and have a less crowded schedule compared to FM20.
At the start of the game you should NOT choose "Austrian Level 6 and above", any other constellation can be chosen. Best would be "Austrian Level 10 and above", because the FM uses random promotions and so leagues could shrink/grow a lot.
This file is not compatible with any "name change" files! Keep your distance from it. (This refers to external "name change files", not the LNC).
I highly recommend to check "Add players to playable teams" at save start.
- 150 leagues
- 10 cups
- 82 reserve leagues
- 1 youth league
- 9 U-18 leagues with 38 subdivisions
Supplemental files are available again this year:
- Austria's awards
- Austria's fictional referees
- Austria's media sources
Additional Files - 21.3
Download and install:
Download and put the file into the user folder in the subfolder "editor data".
Example location of the folder on Windows 10: "C:\Users\...\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\editor data".
To be able to use the league extension you have to create a new savegame.
Thanks to all the helpers who made it possible to get the Austria file for FM21 up and running.
EDIT(25 February 2021): The file was successfully uploaded to the 21.3 database.
