FM 2014 New Leagues - The US Leagues with Promotion, Relegation and Splits
Welcome. This is my interpretation of making America more attractive to play in.

All Leagues have been increased in Reputation from 140-90 respectively.

* Please Note For Up To Date Transfer's Please Use Pr0's database - This includes transfers such as Villa to NYCFC and Kaka to Orlando * Also On Loading click Do Not Add Key Staff to stop having managers that aren't real.

MLS - Contains all 19 teams as before, the top 4 in the league qualify for the North American Champions League, the bottom two teams are relegated to the Second Division, there are no conferences in this.

Second Division - Contains 10 teams, top 2 are promoted while the bottom 2 are relegated, after 2 rounds of games the league splits into top half and bottom half, playing each other a further 3 times in the mini league.

Third Division - Contains 14 teams, top 2 are promoted while bottom 2 are relegated to the UNL, as before the league splits after two rounds at 7th place and two further rounds take place NYCFC have replaced LA Galaxy Reserves.

UNL - The UNL is the final tier of the American Leagues and is the Canadian Super League moved into the American System, Contains 12 teams, 2 promoted and non relegated, after 3 rounds of fixtures.

US Open Cup - 256 team competition, teams from all professional leagues in America, straight knock out which finishes in December.

Lance Pioneer Cup - Old Columbus Rivalry Cup, transformed into a competition between the top two leagues and the three best teams in the 3rd Division, prize money is less than the Open Cup.

Supporters Shield - The Super Cup between the Open Cup and MLS winners.

Future Plans

  • A Super Cup between Mexican and American Cup Winners
  • A Winter Mini League between Russian, American and Mexican teams
  • An All America's Cup containing all the teams from each Top Division in the North , Central and South America's

    I'll be taking a look at this database later today, I'll consider using it in an upcoming story (with Indy Eleven, as they're for all intents and purposes my local side) if I like it!
