Football Manager 2017 League Updates - South Africa Regional Leagues for FM17
This database is perfect for people wanting to try something different for their next FM save. Updated to work with 17.3 patch.

It unlocks ABC Motsepe leagues for each of the nine provinces and I created 27 SAB Regional Leagues. I also expanded the NedBank Cup to include all SAB teams and created nine provincial cups for level 3 and 4.

The database also includes a variety of playing surfaces including gravel pitches.

There is very little information available online about the SAB Regional Leagues so this took a lot of research and some welcome help from

Find me on Twitter @40yardheader.

If you're looking for something a bit different for your next save this could be for you.

    What do you think I should change? I made all the Level 4 teams skint on purpose.

    mate, it would be great if you'll also make a version with realistic finances (for example, you can make it as in original DB)
