FM 2018 Fantasy Scenarios - Old Firm to English Championship - B Teams in Scotland
Made this for myself and thought some others may want to play it so here it is for anyone who chooses to.

How it works:


A new Scottish League Setup has been created with a 16 team Scottish Premiership, 18 team Scottish Championship and 10 team League one. 

Increased tv money, 5m per club each season with increased prize money in the cups and leagues. Nothing too dramatic, just enough to give the other Scottish teams and leagues the ability to improve long term in the game. 

Rangers B & Celtic B compete in the Scottish Premier League, Scottish Cup and League Cup and both have their own 15k stadiums named after club legends. 

Celtics current Champions League spot has been given to Aberdeen with Rangers Europa League spot going to Hibs and Hearts getting Aberdeen's Europa League place.

If Rangers or Celtic B finish in the European spots, their places will be given to the team ranked below them.


The Old Firm take the place of North Ferriby and Leamington in the English pyramid system with the Vanarama North sides no longer in the game, they were then swapped with the lowest reputation teams in each tier until placed in the Championship.

Rangers and Celtic's youth intake will still produce Scottish players.

Both start at 6900 reputation.

Both start with 47m in the bank, 30m transfer budget and available wage budget of 300k .

Both have total annual sponsorship income of 44m set for 3 years which will obviously increase/decrease based on performance and reputation status (more than West ham, Newcastle and Everton but less than Tottenham and rest of 'big' clubs)

Both can play in European competition but obviously representing England.

Known Issues

Under 18's wont play league fixtures in 1st season but will in 2nd season and every season after.

An under 23's squad will be created, they won't have league fixtures and will only play in the EFL Trophy games which is 8 games max a season -  (This annoyed me at first but after a long play through its actually ideal as too many players are required to have an 18's, 23's, B team and senior squad.)

If Rangers B or Celtic B are relegated down to the Scottish Championship or League One, neither team will be promoted even if they win the league, despite playing around with the editor i can't seem to fix this. Most annoying thing about it but not a gamebreaker for me personally as i use the B team for bleeding youngsters anyway.

I play my game with the stop brexit file and real name changes.
Also a transfer update, Japan database and league, Classen league files and Less injuries file.
So it's compatible with all of them too.
