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

    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

    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.
