    @fasil working on a custom database for indian clubs

    The problem still seems to be there partially. Initially the teams are registering their players correctly but a few days after the end of Durand cup we are asked to confirm our squads for ISL after which all the AI managed teams are unregistering their main players and going to ISL with developmental players

    Can you add Reliance next gen cup. Last year winners and Runner ups went to England I believe

    Can you add kerala premiere league and other state leagues plz. It will be so fun to have Road to glory from stae leagues to ISL

    @RatedRSuperStar That's great. Looking forward to starting a new save with your database

    @AverageTactician this update should remove that problem, i've tested it and all ISL teams are registering players properly.

    I have noticed one problem in your database and it was there in FM21 too. Before the start of the ISL the AI teams don't register their main players. They just enter with developmental and 1-2 main players. They register their main players only in the winter transfer window.

    In real life, in 2022/23 ISL has No Rel, I-League has 1 Promotion so, in 2023/24 ISL will have 12 teams instead 11. Please, correct your file, thanks.

    P.S.: Sorry for my not perfect english.

    then whats the point of a top group without relegation lmao
    if they want to add more teams then just adds from the best team on second tier

    I think everything is spot on except promotion-relegation from the ISL to I-League.

    ISL(no relegation) I-League(1 promotion)
    2023/2024 ISL(no relegation) I-League(1 promotion)
    2024/2025 [There is no official say, but most probably] ISL(1 relegation) I-League(1 promotion)
    It's because Indian FA is trying to add more teams to the ISL.
