Club Insights - FM22 Challenge Index - Updated
Hello managers,

I have seen questions about challenges, so I decided to create an index of FM22 challenges that can be played throughout the year.

I would like to improve this with more ideas, more saves which are different from usual.

So, please send in your suggestions in the comments for the challenges listed and especially for new ones that could be added.

Prestige Challenge

There are 4 main challenge categories: Classic / Managers / Clubs / Creative.
Each of these, has secondary challenges represented by icons as shown below.



When completed in full, these challenges unlock the main challenges icon.
The ultimate goal is to unlock 44 secondary icons and thus all 4 main icons.
The order of completion is not important.

After the second hit, he left after a dispute with management and said the famous line:

Do not use the editor.

The colossus that shares the same city with you, has taken your name, your fans and the young talent from your academy.

If you don't know him, two facts about him: He was born in Corleone, Sicily, and there's only one thing more important than his homeland: "la famiglia" - the family. Put on your best suit and light up the cigar, because it's time for a family visit.

37. The Investor

One of the most frequent requests to every FM is to be able to use his money and also to buy a club.
Why not adapt this request to the current FM.
Take the extra money from your club and invest it in a small club with the aim of bringing it up to your division.

40. Around the World

In June 2004, a team of three, including Colin Angus and his wife, Julie Wafaei, left Vancouver on their bicycles. Almost two years later, they returned home, looking like castaways, and having completed the first man-powered circumnavigation of the globe - a feat that involved rowing unsupported across two oceans and trekking across 17 countries.
Will you be able to repeat this feat from the comfort of your house?


OBJECTIVES
Conquer the league before moving to the next country.

RULES
  • Change of clubs by application.
  • Follow the order to the right and finish the career back to Canada.

41. Bring the Boys Back Home

Many of this challenges come from years spent playing FM. But this one comes from an unexpected place, music. Journey to 1979, Pink Floyd released the iconic album "The Wall", and in this album a song that gave origin to this save: Bring the boys back Home.
This theme deals with the anguish of a child, who just wants to get back his father, a soldier in the Second World War.
Based on this song, your challenge will be to bring "home", players who left your club.

Example of a possible player for a Juventus coach

OBJECTIVES
  1. Win the league and domestic cups.
  2. Win European competitions, especially the Champions League.

RULES
  • Only use with players who have already passed through the club.
  • A player can only be considered fit, after being out for at least 1 year.

TIPS
  • The starting club is your own choice.
  • Make the challenge harder by picking up a less reputable club.



42. Jackson Five

Another musical theme that inspired an FM challenge. This one is adapted from famous jackson five theme "ABC" but with a slight twist.
Conquer this challenge at the rhythm of the 70s.


OBJECTIVES
  1. Win the league, before changing clubs.
  2. Follow the order of clubs indicated (A -B -C).

  • All your players must have at least one of the 3 letters in their name (optional).

TIPS
  • The number of clubs per letter is irrelevant.
  • In the leagues mentioned, you can find other clubs (Arsenal, Cagliari, etc).



43. The Old Generation

We all like a good youth challenge, playing only youngsters and signing under a certain age.
But in this challenge you will have to take advantage of the wisdom of your elders and give them one last trophy.

Example of a possible player for this challenge

OBJECTIVES
  1. Win the league and domestic cups.
  2. Win European competitions, especially the Champions League.

Only play players over the age of 33.

    Great work! Who doesn't love a challenge?

    Another suggestion:

    Name: Brazilian Nomad
    Challenge: Win 15 different Brazilian State Championships
    Rules: You cannot accept a job from a Serie A team, although you can stay with a team that you get promoted

    Why are United listed as the first champions of England? It was actually Preston, back in 1888-89.

    Football didn't begin in 1992.

    Credit to M. ANTUNES (aka BLITZ NIMROD) for putting it all together.

    Here is another Challenge which I did in FM21 and I had a lot of Fun with it.

    Name: Bring the Champions League home!
    Club: FC Stade Nyonnais
    League: Swiss 3rd Tier - Not in the default Database - Needs DB download.
    Challenge: Take over FC Stade Nyonnais climb up the Swiss pyramid and win the Champions League to bring it Home!

    Why FC Stade Nyonnais? Well, the UEFA HQ is just on the other side of the road to your clubs ground, about 450 meters.

    Have fun with this Challenge ^^

    I did the Pentagon many times in the past. I would recommend starting in Africa. Of course you start unemployed without any manager experience.
    Also nice challenge is. Pick 1 country and make them top Place in the Uefa rankings. E.g. Denmark or Croatia is interesting for this challenge. Its challenging, cause your success is not enough the other teams the league need to be competitive in Europe too. So you need to loan players to them to make them better, or you build one top club and move to the other in the country. Its really challenging cause the Sponsoring money isn't really increasing like it should. And with time the wage budget will be pretty high. so you have a lot of selling and buying every season to ensure financial stability. hope you guys get the idea

    I prefer San Marino to Liechtenstein. First, Swiss league will become very boring, while Itallian league will bring me a challenge that can last for years and years. Then, San Marino's NT comes from a bit further, being officially last in the FIFA rankings, and there are more stepping stones to get, such as first win,

    RuudDude , thanks for the imput, yes, i think there are more clubs the problem is that today i need to sign for the clubs in orer to check their debts // so i didnt check them all, but i will check your suggestion :D
  • BLITZ NIMROD's avatar
    Romano.338 suggestion: you should do it with liechenstein , and here is why :
    1- You have local clubs performing in the suiss league (so a lot of fun club wise)
    2- The nation is available on the game (San marino is not)
  • Romano.338's avatar
    I'll definitely re-do a San Marino challenge, it's awesome. Local club too.
