FM 2020 Fantasy Scenarios - [FM20] UEFA Revival 1.3
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 35 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 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.

- Unfortunately as of now, the 'No Transfer Window' files are out of the running due to issues getting them off the ground and running properly. I'll try whatever I can to get them working and uploaded in a future update.

- 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



- 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 35 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.

    @Carlito_85 Yeah, it plays in the background, stats are reflected and matches recorded in the competition page, but it cannot be accessed from anywhere in the teams' schedule (they even play friendlies in those same dates).
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @leverkuhn: I'm not sure what would cause that. Does the competition still play out as normal?

    I'll take a look in a bit and see if I can get the same problem to occur on my game.
  • leverkuhn's avatar
    Thank you for another great update! I've noticed the Club World Cup fixtures do not appear in the teams' schedule, though. I've never experienced this before, it's really strange.

    Thanks @Carlito_85
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @Karzy68: I'll look into getting the next update on Steam.
  • Karzy68's avatar
    Can Someone please put this on Steam so I and many others can download and enjoy to. thanks
  • leverkuhn's avatar
    @Carlito_85 Yes, now it's working properly. Thank you.
  • leverkuhn's avatar
    @Carlito_85 Thank you so much. Looking forward to try it out.
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @leverkuhn: Just ran another test and Man City u18's made it to the Round of 32.

    I'll release the update later tonight. You should notice a pretty big difference.
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @leverkuhn: Oh OK, but the Playoff round schedules without problems though? I'll look into that other problem for you.

    I'm hoping to get an update out for the UEFA Youth League later tonight once I've ran some more tests.
  • leverkuhn's avatar
    @Carlito_85 Edit: It happens every season to the English team entering 2nd qlf Round of UYL.
  • leverkuhn's avatar
    @Carlito_85 Absolutely no other files, just UEFA Revival 01 and UEFA Youth League A. I choose only England up to League One, unemployed, go on holiday and Manchester City U18 never gets past 2nd Qualifying Round no matter whether they win or lose. This happens every season to the English Premier League winner. Derby, on the other hand, get to play normally. [img][/img]
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @leverkuhn: Are you using any other files in addition to mine? There could be some sort of conflict there because I've ran a few tests on my game and it works as it should.

    There are a couple of things I need to iron out with the competition (some nations don't have youth teams in the game for example so I may have to eliminate them from the competition). The fixture dates have already been addressed for the next update but the basics should work from start to finish.
  • leverkuhn's avatar
    @Carlito_85 There seems to be a problem as well, as Man City U18 enter the Youth League in december (2nd Qualifying Rnd), win their tie but don't play any more games that season...
  • leverkuhn's avatar
    @Carlito_85 Thanks for the reply. I thought the competition would remain the same as in the main game. Overall I think your work is outstanding, but the Youth League format is a bit of a letdown without the group stage for English teams.
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @leverkuhn: There should be 2 English teams in the competition.

    - Man City u18's join at the Second Qualifying Round (December)
    - Derby u18's join at the Playoff (February)

    Just ran a test and they show up on my game. Which month are you at?
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @leverkuhn: Thanks for the heads up. I'll check that shortly for you and see if I can sort it out asap.
  • leverkuhn's avatar
    I am using files 01 and Youth League A but for some reason English teams are not involved in the UEFA Youth League at all...
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @Davieb1: Yeah you'll need to start a new save for it to work.

    Remember to make sure that only 1 out of the 35 UEFA files is selected to avoid clashing errors. Same for the other files that have A and B versions.
  • Davieb1's avatar
    I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

    All the files have been put into their respective folders as mentioned above but when I load my game I don't have anything there to show for it do I need to start a new save?
  • Carlito_85's avatar
    @destmez: Can you be a bit more specific?
  • destmez's avatar
    this is dont work for me
