Author's statement:

Alternate Swiss league with 8tiers, and a fully playable Liechtenstein league (Ländle Liga) included.

Alternate league structure with 8 tiers and a total of 27 divisions/groups.
Tier 5 to 8 with regionalised groups.

Plus an integrated Liechtenstein League with 10 clubs, all clubs participating in three Swiss cups (but not the main cup)

A total of 440 authentic Swiss clubs (plus the 10 from Liechtenstein). All lower league clubs are made semi-pro and all are in active leagues.

All clubs with assigned citys and correct inhabitants range, longitude, latitude, altitude.

All clubs with home team kits and unique clubs colors, plus the correct stadium names. (tick club logos and batches on in the pref)

All clubs with positive (small) balance at the start.

Full reserve league structure, plus U18 team for all clubs. All clubs with reserve fixtures, the U18 league will expand season after season and add more clubs.

All lower league divisions with a variety of playoffs for promotion and relegation.
Some special league deciding rules in the lower leagues (yellow and red cards)
Amount of foreigners who can be in the match squad set from 2 (lowest level) to 10 in the Super League.

TV money and cup money added to aliment the clubs
Club reputations matches the level on which they are assigned

4 Cup Systems
Main cup involves all Swiss clubs
3 lower leagues cups, including all Liechtenstein teams.

When you start a new game tick "add key staff" as this will also generate newgen players for all clubs right from the start.

1.11.2009 --> update v01 (added squad numbers to the lower leagues, added Liechtenstein cup with group stage)

Why this alternate structure and not the real one?

You can activate the 1. Liga in Switzerland with just a few clicks. However, some U21 clubs are part of the 1. Liga and that causes some problems in long term games, as just a few clubs in the database have U21 squads assigned. Another problem is that the Swiss league is mainly amateurish below the Challenge League and a lot of small clubs have up to 3 teams playing in the 2, 3. and liga. This league structure can not be edited in a realistic way. Therefore I decided to make my own Swiss league structure, trying to make the ingame realism the main focus.

For those who want to play the Original Swiss league, I have activated the 1. Liga as it is set in the database:

Switzerland 1. Liga

How to install:

* Place the .xml file to the folder My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2010\editor data. In case you can't find this folder, it's within the folder that savegames get saved.

* When starting a new game, in the "Choose Database" box, hit "Change" at "Editor Data Files" and then OK. Select the file you placed to "user data" folder. Click "ΟΚ".
