Football Manager 2020 League Updates - FM 2020 England Lower Leagues to Level 16
As always, this will be the biggest English database available to play for Football Manager 2020. The largest database on Football Manager will be back for another installment.

You can manage a club 16 leagues down the English football pyramid. By the time you reach Premier League (assuming you can win consecutive promotions every year), all real players would be probably retired and you'd be in a fantastic football world filled with newgens.

This England Level 16 database for FM20 includes real structure and rules, as well as all the cups (with future updates).
It's complete down to level 16. A Gargantuan task no doubt.

Released: 7 December 2019 (Level 10 - No League Cups for levels 9/10)
Updated: 28 September 2020 (Level 16)

  • alrob007's avatar
    northren league division one should be regional and not county and divsion two needs to come up to county from level 10 we should end up in northern premier in stead of isthmian perimer
  • alrob007's avatar
    thanks for your effort and time but this data base is worng for teams that progress in northumberland and tyne and wear you get promoted to the wrong leagues

    great work, however it doesn't include the original base hardcoded change in the league structure after the 1st season. Holiday in to the 2.season and league one should have 24 teams again .. National League north and south should be increased to 24 teams.
