Football Manager 2021 League Updates - UEFA European Cups Fix (No away goals)
Fix for teams from same nation being drawn against each other in qualifying rounds for both the Europa League and Europa Conference League.
Also changed fourth qualifying round name to playoff like in real life.
Changed fixture priority to high for every fixture.
First season higher seeded team plays at home


Update 1:

Made compatible with files that edit/add German leagues
Fixed(added) prize money for champions league qualifying rounds


June Update:
Changed prize money (changed it to what I've seen on the UEFA site).
Removed away goals in qualifiers and knockout stages.
(not 100% this one works) !Armenian and Azerbaijani clubs can't be drawn against each other in qualifiers!
1st qualifying round of the Champions league is split into 2 groups of seeded and unseeded, instead of just seeded and unseeded.
The ucl preliminary rounds are now always played on a different neutral venue. (doesn't 100% work as intended, but it's better than always playing in Gibraltar)


July Update:
Group Stages don't use away goals for H2H matches anymore. (still used for later tiebreakers, but this is also so irl)


July 9 Update:
Updated version with bug fixes.

28 September 2018 update, version 3.0:
5 subs of 12, + 1 E.T and 3 max stoppages

Prize money in qualifiers adjusted accordingly.

Various changes to draws in qualification rounds. [[Mainly in UEL play-offs teams from same nation can actually play against each other!]]

Fixture priority for Finals changed: Continental Cup High –> Highest

Removed the annoying removal of the second leg in the first and second knockout round of UEL and UECL.

    Hello man, one question.
    is there a file that changes only the sub rules in the European competitions?
  • RealSmokePL's avatar
    @juve_man yes
    1
  • juve_man's avatar
    Does this take effect from 2021/22 season only?
  • RealSmokePL's avatar
    (comment posted twice for some reason)
  • RealSmokePL's avatar
    @mydesiredusernameyeah this is only for UCL, UEL and UECL, and currently I've already started a save so no I'm not going to be very active with the editor for some time.
  • mydesiredusernameyeah's avatar
    Are you planning to fix also copa del rey away goals rule? Or it's only for EU caps?
  • mydesiredusernameyeah's avatar
    omg I love this so much, thank your very much
  • RealSmokePL's avatar
    @mydesiredusernameyeah My changes actually only apply after the first season, thus 21/22 no away goals whilst 20/21 still has them.
  • mydesiredusernameyeah's avatar
    Hi. I wanted to know, if it's possible to change something so that this rules will be applied after the first season (starting from 21/22 like in real life)? Thanks in advance!

    @RealSmoke You might wanna Report the Bug in the SI Forum, not that it gets accidentally in the next Version of the game, when SI remove Away Goals ^^
  • MeddlerausEmskirchen's avatar
    yeah this is what I thought, pretty unfortunate this stupid bug by SI since with the away goals removed in the H2H as tiebreaker this could be relevant at some point since it's not unlikely that two teams have like the same goals scored and conceded
  • RealSmokePL's avatar
    so if the teams are tied on h2h it will be :

    Goal difference in all group matches;
    Goals scored in all group matches;
    Wins in all group matches;
    Away wins in all group matches; (This is still here like irl)
    Disciplinary points
    UEFA club coefficient.
  • RealSmokePL's avatar
    @MeddlerausEmskirchen It's mainly still like irl just without the Away goals in all group matches, so:

    Points in head-to-head matches among the tied teams;
    Goal difference in head-to-head matches among the tied teams;
    Goals scored in head-to-head matches among the tied teams;
    Goal difference in all group matches;
    Goals scored in all group matches;
    Away goals scored in all group matches; (this is removed due to a bug)
    Wins in all group matches;
    Away wins in all group matches; (This is still here like irl)
    Disciplinary points (direct red card = 3 points; double yellow card = 3 points; single yellow card = 1 point);
    UEFA club coefficient.
  • MeddlerausEmskirchen's avatar
    Thank you for your effort. But do I understand it right that if teams would be tied in H2H and have the same goal difference and goals scored you had to remove away goals scored as the next tiebreaker (as it would be in real life) or were you able to fix that?
  • RealSmokePL's avatar
    @MeddlerausEmskirchen it's already uploaded, it's called 'Z_Uefa(Final)'
  • RealSmokePL's avatar
    @MeddlerausEmskirchen here you can see the new version works https://imgur.com/a/BxOiFP2
  • MeddlerausEmskirchen's avatar
    Can you upload that file then maybe? I really need it to start a new save so would be extremely thankful. Even though it's pretty stupid from SI that you only can do this by removing one criteria that is used in RL.
  • RealSmokePL's avatar
    @MeddlerausEmskirchen yeah it's a bug with the game and I guess how it sorts the stuff, even though it doesn't say 'Away goals scored for h2h matches' it still uses it for h2h
  • RealSmokePL's avatar
    @MeddlerausEmskirchen I know, I'm disappointed myself, it seems to be a bug with the game as nothing else worked, now it does work I tested it for a few seasons.
  • MeddlerausEmskirchen's avatar
    Okay so I simulated again and yeah I found one where the H2H was 2-0 and 1-3 and the team with the away goal was in front even though they had worse goal difference. So the only way is to remove away goals completely?
  • MeddlerausEmskirchen's avatar
    @RealSmokePL So the current version was still buggy? So it only works when you remove it even though its like it in rl? I was hoping maybe it would be sorted right when they played the return leg. But I havent found any situation where there is a team that would have lost the h2h with the old rules but with worse goal difference yet so dont know if it works. Since the rules that are shown in the competition are looking correct, but if you have to remove something that is used in rl that's unfortunate tbh
  • RealSmokePL's avatar
    @MeddlerausEmskirchen Yeah, it's strange. The game for some reason uses "Away goals in all group matches" for h2h when it shouldn't, after removing that (which is quite annoying cause it's used irl) it works! Brondby had a better gd than ajax but ajax had a better h2h away goals, brondby finished ahead of ajax like they should. I'm gonna upload the final version of this file as I believe I've fixed everything, thanks all for helping me spot some of the bugs.
  • MeddlerausEmskirchen's avatar
    @REALSMOKEPL Have you tested it? I use it in a new save and in the rules everything looks good, but then it doesn't really work. Like Roma and Athens both are on 7 points, they played 2:2 at Roma and now Athens is above them with the away goals even though Roma has way better goal difference. This is 2nd season so it should already be in place.
