BENE League System for 1st-U21-U19 clubs created by thesacrisant aka abu* (STEAM_0:0:19197710)


This file or future files will not be downloadable from my workshop becauze of the new steam phishing rules.
This and future files will be hidden for the public by steam.
Seems having paid for over 250 steam games isn't enough to steam to make workshop items available for the public anymore.
So i can't give the steamlink because it is only available for other creators because of these steam phising rules

Check google if you are a creator : steam workshop What features are unavailable to me.


A FMF file like this can only be created in PRO Rules.

The BENE League System is an international Leagues System of 2 levels with Belgian/Dutch clubs.

The Belgian-Dutch clubs ARE NOT REMOVED to a other's nation football league like you see on other files.

The Belgian-/Dutch clubs keep their nationality and keep playing their national leagues , cups.

The Belgian-Dutch clubs keep playing the CL-EL-Youth League when qualified along the BENE SL-L1.

    Could you please fix the belgian football system? Everytime I start a new save with it, it tells me "a minimum of 14 teams is required for the Eerste Klasse A U21, but there were found only 0"
