Good luck!
If you even get half way through this it would possibly be one of the best Pentagon Tetradecagon challenges on here, will be very hard to complete.
He's back!! Good luck. Can't wait.
That is an unbelieavable challenge if I ever saw one! Good luck.
Wow...Just Wow :O
If this gets completed, you deserve a medal! This will probably take you all year:O
Thanks for the pressure/support guys! :D

I will do my best to complete this challenge, who knows what happens!

The Team



“First off all, who am I?”


“Yes, I am that bastard who led Pyunik Yerevan to Champions League glory… oh if that Football Manager game was real life. I would’ve made Sir Alex and Jose Mourinho look like amateurs at this game! Anyways…”

“I decided to start off in Africa… and I only had one league to choose from, as I narrowed down my list to the one and only, South Africa. I decided to look for teams in the National First Division, or Level 2, and take them to the top of Africa from the bottom of the South. Offers came up, but I again, narrowed it down. I was left with only two options.”

“Witbank Spurs, or the recently relegated Jomo Cosmos. Let this picture… tell you the story.”

“Yep, I decided to go for Jomo Cosmos. Call it a revival, in fact… call it whatever you want. (I would show the club history… but that would give out spoilers). They’ve only won 8 trophies in their history, with their best years coming in the late 80’s, winning the Premier Division in South Africa and the FA Cup too! Can I take this team to the top? You’ll have to wait and see.”

“Finally, I’ll leave you guys with a look of the First Division rules, and the state of our facilities.”


Good luck. I love the challenge when all six confederations are involved.

Good luck, will be tough against a few teams like Kaizer Chiefs, but with you as the manager, surely it wont be too much of a challenge :D

If you complete this challenge I will personally hand my FM13 Story of the Year medal to you.
