The ConceptI’d like to introduce to many of you the idea of the Celtic Nations. You’re all probably thinking what the hell are they. Well, the Celtic nations are territories in Northern and Western Europe where Celtic languages or cultural traits have survived. These include Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland and Brittany, in northern France.
So my idea was this – why not create a fantasy nation where all of these teams play against each other. The likes of Celtic pitting themselves against teams like Nantes. Interesting, right?
Well, I did some research on the Celtic Nations, and found that the Celts also populated northern Iberia – more specifically Galicia, Northern Portugal and Asturias. Now, I thought adding those teams would make for a more interesting database – Celta playing Angers, Celtic facing Lorient, some mouth-watering clashes, for sure.
So I set to work, and here we are.
The StructureThe Celtic Isles, as the fantasy nation has decided to call itself, has a rather large footballing pyramid. In total, 13 divisions, 3 cups and 3 super cups all there for you to get your hands on.
1. Celtic Premier League (40 teams, 2 groups, Championship Playoff, 4 teams relegated)
2. Celtic Second League (4 teams automatic promotion, 3 teams relegated)
3. Celtic Third League (60 teams, 2 groups, 2 automatic promotions, 8 teams compete in playoff – 1 promoted, 4 relegated)
4. Celtic Fourth League (20 teams, 2 automatic promotion, 6 teams compete in playoff – 2 promoted, 3 relegated)
5. Celtic Fifth League (24 teams, 1 automatic promotion, 6 teams in a playoff - 2 promoted, 4 relegated
6. Celtic Sixth League (24 teams, 1 automatic promotion, 8 teams in playoff – 3 promoted, 4 relegated)
7. Celtic Seventh League (24 teams, 3 automatic promotion, 4 teams in playoff – 1 promoted, 4 relegated)
8. Celtic League of 48 Division One (48 teams, 2 groups, 2 automatic promotions, 8 teams in a playoff – 2 promoted, 4 relegated)

Known Issues1. With use of this database, there are a selection of leagues you cannot play due to the movement of teams, and subsequent holes left mean the structure does not work. I have no plans to fix this as it would mean doing a complete reshuffle of France, Spain and Portugal. Also, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland are all completely unplayable.
2. There are no graphics at all of any kind. I will not be making any immediate future.
If there are any other issues or anything else you want to know, comment below or PM me. Otherwise, have fun!
