Football Manager Guides - Football Manager 2019 Newgen / Regen Youth Intake Dates
Newgens. Regens. Game generated (not real) players, with a history of funny hair cuts. It's a part of the game that is necessary to keep players as many seasons into the future as you'd like.

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.

    @stigzee: right, i found like 3 15 years old player with 5 star PA

    is it better to assign scout by ourself or leave it with the General Manager?
  • stigzee's avatar
    Can i just add theres newgens available from day 1 keep scouting for 15-16 year olds there's always 1 gem hidden in each new game

    Hi. No mention of Vanuatu.
    I'm playing a save there using Riddler's leagues megapack.
    Can't figure out when the intake is - no mention of it on the calender as far as I can see, and nothing I can see in the editor which shows when it is. Any ideas?
    It's definitely not in February when most of the other OFC countries have theirs, as I'm into May and no intake so far.

    I had my youth intake in Cyprus on March 6th

    How long does it usually takes to find a good regen? I didn't play FM since 2017 so I'm kinda new to some of the stuff in FM19. I'm in year 2024 with Inter and after 2 months of scouting with your scheduled dates, I got 0 recommendations from my scouts...
    Any advice/tip would be helpful..

    Great work as usual, Thanks Stam.

    Quick question to you or to anyone with the knowledge; I generally play in Premiere league as high number of strong teams makes it more fun, but due to laws, I cannot get working rights for almost all young players and cannot play them myself but being have to loan them out. Although, it was rarely that i tried to sign any players younger than 18-19. If they are in youth contracts, can I still sign and get working rights for the players? or in Premiere league there is no way around it?

    @shwan : They just randomly have ones valued at £0, it appears to be very rare.
  • shwan's avatar
    I don't get how you get free ones ?
    every time I need to pay compensation not to mention ridiculous wage requests
  • OohAhCantona's avatar
    Right, I figured it out once I went looking around. I managed to find a Peruvian GK with 5 Star PA who was at a club but valued at £0, signed without a transfer fee.

    @OohAhCantona: Intakes usually get assigned to random clubs. If those clubs are not high profile ones, you'll be able to "steal" them for a low price. There's also the chance of clubs not signing them, so there should be some free ones.

    @xxbati: Surprisingly, my 12-season save didn't have any youth intake from Turkey. I'll investigate with another holiday save.
  • OohAhCantona's avatar
    Nevermind, these are intake not free. I got it, and the list works well!
  • OohAhCantona's avatar
    What am I missing here? I search on the dates (sometimes all of them), no newgens come up, then I advance and they populate but they are already signed by other teams.
  • xxbati's avatar
    what about Turkey?
