Football Manager 2018 League Updates - Dutch Lower Leagues for FM 2018 by VincelaBera
By much popular demand... I am back with a new edition of the Dutch lower leagues database. Take control of your favorite team in this database, adding leagues up till tier 6 (eerste klasse) in the Netherlands.

Can you make your way up through the Dutch football pyramid, and maybe while you're at it, also take the Netherlands national team back to glory as well... we kinda need it.

Like last year, the rules have changed compared to the normal/default netherlands and league rules.
This time, ive decided it was time to have promotions and regulations without the hassle of having playoffs.
so the pyramid, leagues and their promotions and regulations look like this.

And of course I've added all new graphics for all the teams, and some even have kits for you to enjoy in your save.
So if you want to have a really deep experience into Dutch football, this is made for you.

As always, please feel free to comment, leave suggestions, or ask questions. They are all very much appreciated.


How to unlock the Dutch lower leagues in FM 2018

1) Download the .zip file and extract it.
2) Put the graphics folder into \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2018 folder.
3) Put the editor data folder into \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2018 as well.
4) Start the game.
5) Reload your skin to get the logos to work correctly.
6) Start a new save in the Netherlands/Holland with the database enabled/selected.

    I can't play this database, because the game says that one club is missing every time I try to start a new game. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    I like this data update but I also prefer the Playoffs back in it.. Can you name a possible date for this release? :)

    So far so good. Everything looks good. Only thing is that there seems to be no prize money for winning in the cup? I got my team through to the 4th round but got no money. A big must for my small amateur team! And maybe go lower, I'd love to manage my home town team in the Zondag 3e klasse. Anyway, good job Vince, I love it so far!

    If anybody has issues with the second season please let me know, and if you can send me screenshots, and try to explain what is going wrong.
    And send some comprehensive info to, like the league you started in, wich club, etc.. etc..
    I'll be looking in to it as soon as this friday (tomorrow) and fix the issues.

    Personally i havnt had any issues whatsoever.

    and while im at it, anyone have any suggestions for additions to the database.
    im looking at adding the beloved playoffs back into it, if thats what the people want.

    I read that there is a problem with loading the fixtures in the second season?

    divisions based on location/districts is a bit too much work for me atm.
    And also atm, not interested in making a french db, but maybe if after a couple of weeks none such thing exist and people want it, i can look into it.. anyway thanks for the comments sofar guys,

    Hope you enjoy

    Wow...great update, but why no playoffs? What a shame. I think also no Districtcups and KNVB cup for amateurs in this update? I hope there is someone who can add this or make one? Would be awsome if it was included, it would be defo the best downloadleague there is. Good job anyway Vince;)
