FM 2014 New Leagues - Germany to the Oberliga for FM14
You will have a chance to play in the Bundesliga ll the way down to the Oberliga (14 leagues). There is a level that is inactive that feeds right into the Oberliga.

Like the Austrian file you are able to control the u23 squads, for example FC Bayern München II. They can be promoted up to the 3.Liga and having them is very important for youth development.

Also included are various media sources such as Sky Deutschland, Kicker, Bild and ESPN.

Updated: 4 March 2014 - added support for patch 14.3


Installation Instructions

Step 1

Move the downloaded file dfb_59035.dbc in your Football Manager 2014 editor data folder:

Win Vista/7/8: C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2014\editor data\
Win XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2014\editor data\
Mac OS X: /Users/<username>/Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2014/editor data/

Create the folder "editor data" if it doesn't exist.

Step 2

Start a new career game (won't work with classic mode).
A little pop-up window will come up that says there is 1 enabled editor file (number changes depending on how many other custom leagues you have installed). Click OK.

Step 3

After this click on Germany, then Next Game overview in the corner.
It will then bring up the lowest league, when you click the menu you can go lower! Click this then Start Game on the right.

Recommended set-up for your save game

If you skip this part, the level 4 or 5 team you're going to choose will have few real players in the roster. We recommend taking the following steps when starting your save game to ensure you have all available real players in the database for the German leagues.

So when creating your new save, do the following:
  1. Select the Advanced Database Size option. You'll get the Customize the Database screen.
  2. Click on the Add button for Nations.
  3. Enable the options Players based in nation and Players of nationality for Germany.

    I downloaded it yesterday and it wasn't working for me either. But I found out how to fix it:

    Open the file in the editor and click on "Oberliga". there you click on the NOFV Süd and NOFV Nord - Set the minimum team number to 10 in both leagues and save the file. then it should work properly!

    Really? So U17 players are not allowed to play by the DFL? Or is is valid only in the Regional and Oberliga?
    So has never played a U17 player in the German competitions before despite beeing a real talent? Damn. Thanks for your answer Louis O. Then if I start again I should focus only on 17 years old as youngest players in my squad.

    The thing is, in real life, players under 17 cannot play in the DFL. That's why you can't use them.

    Hey mate. The Oberliga has a bug.
    I have chosen Strausberg to manage. I worked a lot in finding and signing talented players in order to have a good season. But when the season started...SHOCK! Under 17 players were not allowed to play despite having youth contracts or non contract terms with me. So despite signing 23 players in pre-season I remained only with 6 eligible players when the season started. So I had to erase the game and won't play it anymore. I played in England's lower leagues as well and there wasn't a problem in the 10th or 11th tier (voasy's work) to play with 15 year old players. And in Germany's real season is it forbidden? It's strange in a country that has such a good youth level maybe the best in the world near Spain. So if you have a mega-talented 16 year old he is not allowed to play???!!! Even in the Oberliga?? So this is the bug I mean. Maybe you can change it next year so we can play the Oberliga in the FM 15. I appreciate your work. Maybe you can make it better in order to become Germany/maniacs while playing.

    all of you cant use Bayern II 'cause it's not affiliate team from FC Bayern, itu second squad from it.

    Werder, annoyingly under 17 players don't seem to be allowed for my team in the Bundesliga either.
  • ImmerWerder's avatar
    Seem to be having another issue:

    The Bremer Liga (5th tier) does not allow players under the age of 17 to play, despite it hosting my (as Werder Bremen) u21 or (Werder III) squad.

    Is this correct? my U17 Players can play in the Regionnaliga with this mod, but not the Kreisliga (Bremer Liga)
  • PeeDub's avatar
    I don't suppose there's any way to retroactively add lower leagues to a save, is there?
  • Louis O.'s avatar
    Great work Bayern, downloaded this and the OFB one too :)
  • Stocke's avatar
    Cool :D
  • MJK46's avatar
    You sadly can't just play as FCB II you have to play as the first team and go to change settings and pick to control them
  • Dthmtlgod's avatar
    Thanks,unless I am doing something wrong, I cant select FC Bayern II as a playable club, do not get the confirm button when I select it.
