Youth intake. It happens every year. A fresh breed of young players are injected to various youth academies throughout the world. If you can keep tabs on these hot prospects fast enough, you could be in for a treat.
The problem is that the best of those players will end up in big clubs because you have a disadvantage compared to AI managers; they know everything about the game’s database and you don’t.
How to find the best regens as soon as they are generated? I've compiled this list to help you pinpoint the dates for every country and give you an edge that will enable you to approach them before the big clubs.
Knowing the dates that newgens from certain countries are generated, takes away the AI advantage and lets you play on level terms. You will know exactly when to send your scouts to scan a certain nation to discover the next generation of raw gems that will take the football world by storm.
|Remember that newgen / regen players are generated by the game to enable you to keep playing indefinitely as real footballers retire. It’s not uncommon to find regens with amazing abilities that is almost unreal (pun intended).|
I’ve holidayed 12 years into the future (to 2030) in order to find the regen youth intake dates for FM 2019.
The dates listed below reflect the first 12 seasons from July 2018 until August 2030. Some countries have a fixed date; for others it's not the same day every year, though it fluctuates by 2 weeks give or take.
Certain nations with high Youth Rating might have a double youth intake, depending on whether you have loaded a playable league from those nations or not.
