Football Manager 2020 Data Updates - FM20 Sleeping Giants Awaken Database
Have you ever wondered how many clubs were great champions in the past decades? Where are they now, and how far can you take them?
Take the role of manager of one of 75 Sleeping Giants of Football Manager 2020.

Clubs from Eastern Germany that were amazing champions in the past but they're struggling since country unification, clubs from England which failed miserably after Premier League was established, long-forgotten Serie A champions, teams that years ago dominated in Paris, clubs that were leaders in Soviet Union, and ones that shined in Yugoslavia. Pick one and start a new career!

Database changes:

- Countries youth reputation changed
- Club youth search level changed
- Financial tweaks:
a) Budgets upgraded
b) Different type of Sugar Daddy added
c) Small changes in ticket prices, season passes etc.
- Boost for smaller European nations, and also for Asian and African countries.

How to install FM20 Sleeping Giants Awaken Database?

Put the "FM20 Sleeping Giants Awaken Database.fmf" file in: "Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2020\editor data"

Then when you're starting a new game make sure that this file is "ticked". It works perfectly with Football Manager 20.4 update.

Additional tips & tricks:

1. When you're creating a manager give him one nationality from Africa for example Ghana, the other one might be your preferable one. Of course, you can also make him Korean, Iranian, Ecuadorian, or whatever you prefer.
2. Add a few languages to your manager's resume, make him multilingual even if it might look unrealistic to know Japanese, and Suahili or Zulu.
3. When you will be deciding which league to play tick all neighboring countries.
4. Make sure to tick South Africa and South Korea
Then add at least one country from South America, preferably: Uruguay, Colombia or Chile.
5. As for big countries like Brazil or Argentina, that's your decision to make if you need to pick one of them, but even if you don't tick them at all you will still see regens from those countries in the game.
6. European countries that you should be interested to tick: Poland, Ukraine, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Austria

Set all leagues that you've decided to pick as "playable" not as "view only".
