FM 2020 Fantasy Scenarios - [FM20] UEFA Revival 1.6
Hi all! Back again with the UEFA Revival project for FM2020. As always there are tons of options, as well as more that I have planned but haven't been able to implement yet.


This is a project dating back to Football Manager 2013. It originally started out solely as a throwback to the 1999-2003 format of the UEFA Champions League, which contained 2 group stages, and has since progressed into a fully customized structure where I've managed to find room to bring back the UEFA Intertoto Cup & the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup. There are now 50 separate UEFA files this year, in addition to the UEFA Youth League revamp and the other continent files so there is plenty of choice for everyone.



- There are various different formats for the UEFA Champions League. Whether you prefer the older, straight knockout system with fewer teams and nations involved, the 1991-93 version which consisted of a group stage for the final 8 teams, the 1997-1999 format with the top nations allocating 2 teams each, the 1999-2003 version which featured a second group stage for the final 16, or the current system with 1 group stage followed by the knockout rounds - it's all included here.

- If you're someone who prefers the UEFA Cup over the UEFA Europa League, that's in here too - again in various formats. There's the old straight knockout format from the 1990's, or the 2004-2009 format of a five-team group stage before the knockout stages. Alternatively if you'd prefer to continue on with the UEFA Europa League, there are a number of choices for this. In addition to the current format, a 2 group-phase format has been included to mirror the 1999-2003 UEFA Champions League, as well as the older streamlined qualifying stages.

- The UEFA Cup Winners' Cup returns and includes 3 different formats, accomodating 32 nations or 54. Again, it's your choice. As an alternative to the Cup Winners' Cup, the recently announced UEFA Europa Conference League has been included (and can be played from the 2019-20 season). Should the domestic cup winner and runner-up both qualify for continental competition, the place will go to the next highest-placed team in the league.

- Tired of dragging through those friendlies during pre-season? The UEFA Intertoto Cup is included in all files and while it can not only offer some valuable competitive game time for your squad, there are payouts in each round, along with the chance to qualify for either the UEFA Cup, UEFA Europa League, or the UEFA Europa Conference League, depending on which file you choose. The competition has a number of formats dating back to the 1990's, and up to 3 teams can qualify for higher competition. Intertoto Cup qualification is determined via league position.

- Should you decide you'd like to change things up, the UEFA Super Cup comes with a brand new option of playing with 4 teams in a pre-season tournament. This will consist of the winner of each UEFA competition. There is also an alternative where the UEFA Champions League runner-up will be included. The current format is also included should you prefer to keep things as they are.

- The FIFA Club World Cup is now available with a format loosely based on the planned expansion in 2021. From June of 2019, 20 teams will compete in a Group Stage, with the top 2 teams in each group progressing to the knockout stages. This competition will take place every 2 years instead of every 4. As of now it is not compatible with the CONCACAF-CONMEBOL merger.

- The CONCACAF and CONMEBOL merger into a 51-nation structure is back this year, featuring 5 competitions for teams to compete which mirror the UEFA style. This comes complete with custom graphics.

- Additionally, the AFC Champions League is back as a separate option, and uses the same 2 group stage format as the 1999-2003 UEFA Champions League. The AFC Cup also mirrors the 2004-2009 UEFA Cup format of 5 teams playing 1 round of matches in the group stage. You then have the AFC Super Cup which features the winner of each competition.

- Transfer-365 allows you to buy/sell/loan players at any time throughout the calendar year. There are no more transfer window limitations in place, which could be a real game-changer depending on who you decide to manage. As of now this includes 34 UEFA nations that are available in the default database..

- All of this comes with a detailed file guide to help you decide which file you'd like to begin your save with.

If necessary, make sure to back up your original confederations logos and then drop the files from each folder into the corresponding locations:

Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2020 > editor data
Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2020 > graphics > pictures > trophies
Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2020 > graphics > pictures > logos > confeds > normal
Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2020 > graphics > pictures > logos > confeds > small
Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2020 > graphics > pictures > logos > competitions > normal
Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2020 > graphics > pictures > logos > competitions > small
Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2020 > graphics > pictures > backgrounds > competitions



- As of the 4.0 update, these files aren't compatible with real fixtures/results.

- With the exception of the AFC, CONCACAF-CONMEBOL and UEFA Youth League files, only use 1 of the UEFA Revival files when starting a new game. I've made 50 different UEFA files available for download (along with a file guide) in order to give you as many options as possible as to which format/competitions you'd like to use.

- If the UEFA Cup or CONCACAF-CONMEBOL graphics don't show up in your game, go to Preferences and make sure the "Show unique ID's to assist skinning" box is ticked, as well as "Reload skin on confirm". Then simply add a line of code in each config file for the UEFA Cup graphics, and rename the corresponding graphics to the new ID number.

- You should now be able to register squads for continental cup games at any time throughout the season

- If you are starting a new game and controlling a team that is competing in the UEFA Intertoto Cup or the FIFA Club World Cup, you're going to need to start your game before June 15th. Activating France as a playable nation will allow you to do this.

- The nation rankings are slightly customized to allocate qualification spots, so a couple of nations have been moved up/down in the rankings for personal preference. You can however change the order in your editor ahead of starting a new game if you wish. I would highly recommend not changing the nation rankings if you intend to use the UEFA Youth League, as it could cause errors.

- If your game is displaying the default names for the competitions (i.e. Champions Cup or EURO VASE etc), try downloading the 'Susie Real Names Fix' from the following link:

Alternatively, you can load the desired file up in the editor and rename the competitions in your database if need be.

    Hey! I use your UEFA revival always! When can we expect a release for FM21? :D
  • LugoManager's avatar
    Hey Carlito_85
    Can you do Alternate Format From UEFA Europa Conference League,Europa League And Champions League
    I Think That Champions League Should Give 24 teams + 8 teams from play-off
    And Europa League Keep 48 Teams In Group Stage But 8 Groups Of 6
    And Europa Conference League Been Similar To 2001-2004 UEFA Cup Format
    And UEFA Super Cup 4 Teams But With Champions League Winner,Europa League Winner,UEFA Europa Confrence League Winner And Champions League Runner-Up
    And Can You Make The FIFA Club World Cup 16 Teams On What It Could Been Or Added FIFA Club Grand Cup As FIFA Club World Cup Winter Replacement
    i think you should do this In UEFA Revival File 36 and FIFA Club World Cup C
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @unitedarestillthebest: I found the cause of the problem with the squad numbers in the Premier League (it was in the Transfer-365 file for England). If you're not using that particular file but are using other custom nation rules for England then the problem may be in there if a certain box was left unchecked.

    Quick fix: Go to the fixture rules for the Premier League (fixture rules 6), tick the "Squad Number Rules Flag" box, then select "Allow Any Squad Numbers".

    I've fixed the issue and will be uploading an update some time tomorrow.
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @unitedarestillthebest: I'm running into the same problem with my save where I can only register 25 players in the Premier League (and also only assign 25 squad numbers). I don't think that has anything to do with my files though as the PL is a domestic competition.

    I'll run a test on a default save to see if the same thing happens and get back to you.
  • unitedarestillthebest's avatar
    Premier league and only play there I have loaded up are ones that wouldn’t affect like the Brazil kits and name and two of my own where I changed the name of Juventus stadium and I put nicknames in the premier league teams cause it peed me off that only Manchester United had one lol
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @unitedarestillthebest: Which competition is that happening with? I wiped out the squad registration rules so you should be able to register as many as you like.

    Are you using any other custom files with mine?
  • unitedarestillthebest's avatar
    I’m doing 41 mode and I come to my first game in the league and I can only give 25 players a squad number which means I can’t use some of my players now
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @LugoManager: I'm not sure what I can do to help with that as I don't know the format you have added to the file. What you would need to do is check and make sure everything adds up properly in the seeding and then check each round individually for errors.
  • LugoManager's avatar
    hey carlitos
    i finish my alternate uefa revival 28 but it appear that i have in 2025 and then all english,spanish,germany clubs are in all competions is something i can do right
  • naelll6's avatar
    yes that's it
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @naelll6: That's OK, no problem. Do you mean with 1-legged ties in neutral venues? If so I can add that in a future update, sure.

    @unitedarestillthebest: No worries, I'm happy to help where I can. Do you have the show unique ID box ticked in preferences? That way you should be able to get the correct ID for each competition to change in the config. Again I would also suggest just double and triple checking for any typos in the config too. Happens to me quite often lol.
  • naelll6's avatar
    sorry I don't speak English so sometimes the translator is wrong but my question was if in a future version or update you plan to add this year's format for the champions league which was the final 8
  • unitedarestillthebest's avatar
    Sorry to be a pain in the arse but just tried adding the trophies for UEFA cup and conference league didn’t work did same id numbers as before any ideas
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @unitedarestillthebest: Glad to hear you got it working. Normally what I do is tick the "show unique ID's" box in the preferences, due to the fact that ID's can change when starting a new save depending on other files you may be using. It tends to shuffle ID numbers around sometimes.
  • unitedarestillthebest's avatar

    its worked now unsure why it didn’t the first time lol
  • unitedarestillthebest's avatar
    Ok I just did the Europa conference league and like the UEFA cup in the editor it has a different id number than in the game and a random id I used the id in the game and that’s worked but the UEFA cup just does not want to play ball
  • unitedarestillthebest's avatar
    I just did the cup winners cup one and it worked I have checked the editor for the UEFA cup and cup winners cup and there is a difference. On the cup winners there’s just one id number which matches the in game one. The UEFA cup had an id number of 100000026 and below that it says random id 312641564 BUT in game the id number is 100000033
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @naelll6: I'm not sure I understand what you're asking. Sorry.

    @unitedarestillthebest: I'm not sure why that wouldn't work. Just checked the config I'm using and upper case lettering should work fine. Are you sure there isn't a typo or a duplicate number in the config or something?
  • unitedarestillthebest's avatar
    Has anyone been able to get the competition logos up I’ve added them to my folder gave them the right number and edited the config file nothing. For example UEFA Cup is 100000033 but it doesn’t work
  • naelll6's avatar
    hello it is to know if in a next bet to play you integrate the format of the final 8
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @KalebENRH: They would fall under the CONCACAF governing body, so file A or B would work (depending on if you're using a file containing the Europa League or UEFA Cup). Or alternatively you can use the default version.
  • KalebENRH's avatar
    Is there any option to play the FIFA Club World Cup with a Mexican team? (it doesn´t matter if i dont use the concacaf-conmebol merger)
