It's almost the halfway point of season 11 and we take a look at how the rest of the summer transfer window went, including a record signing for £6.5m and a record sale as we lose a key player for £21m.

We then turn our attention to the final game before the winter break, a Super League match against Winterthur. Can we top the table going into the break?

Part 23 - S11 Maybe This Time
It's part 24 and there is plenty to cover. We start by taking a look at a heartbreaking season 11 but then turn our attention to the optimism of season 12. We review some new signings and a couple of new additions to the coaching team. There has also been a takeover. What does that mean for the club?

We then take a quick check on the facilities and finances before kicking off season 12 away to Lausanne in the Swiss Super League.

Part 24 - S12 Perennial Bridesmaids
In part 25 of The Great Liechtenstein Challenge we take a look at our form in season 12 as we approach the end of the season, to find out whether it may be our year. There is then a lot to cover in what has been a very eventful season so far.

We check out which players left the club (including two joining Real Madrid) causing us to bring in around £60m in transfer fees and who their replacements are. We also take a look at our coaching staff, including a new assistant manager, the facilities, our recent youth intake and the finances of the club.

There is also time to swing by the National Team to see whether Liechtenstein are starting to make waves on the international scene and who our most important players are.

Part 25 - S12 Transfer Activity
In part 26 we have the biggest news of the challenge so far! In season 12, we won the treble! We look back on the remarkable season where we lifted the trophies of the Swiss Super League, Europa Conference League and Liechtenstein Cup. We take a look at the goals that won FC Balzers their first ever European competition with a victory over Bayer Leverkusen.

We then take a look at what that success means for season 13. We review the players that have joined and left, a new manager of our B team (a French legend no less) and then we finish up by playing Liechtenstein vs Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Part 26 - S13 Treble Winners
lt's part 27 and we begin season 14 with growing pressures, expectations and reputations. Our first game of the season is away to newly promoted FC Wil 1900 as we look to start the season how we finished the last.

Before that we take a look back at season 13 to see if we were able to defend our Super League title and take a look at how our first ever Europa League campaign worked out.

There are also some new signings, some exits and a star player who may well be on the verge of leaving the club!

Part 27 - S14 Dealing with Success
We kick off episode 28 by reviewing how season 14 is working out for the club side, FC Balzers. It's the halfway point of the season and some familiar faces have left the club for big transfer fees but has it affected results on the pitch?

Attention is then switched to the national side and our Uefa Nations League campaign. We have a very big match to play but will our young players be able to handle the pressure following some great results?

Part 28 - S14 A Tense International
It has been a little while since the last update... a season and a half in fact and we catch you up on how season 14 and 15 panned out. We take a look at some new signings including wonderkids and a new batch of Swiss home grown signings. But then... big news... We FINALLY have a 5 star potential Liechtenstein regen. It took 15 years but we finally have one and we take a look at the lad who has already attracted a bid from PSG!

Following this catch up and regen review we play the opening game of season 16 against St. Gallen and a few players are in line for their debuts.

Part 29 - S16 An Exciting Regen
It's just over halfway through season 16 and there are a few things to cover. Lionel Messi has joined FC Balzers! There is an interesting Manchester United regen to take a look at. We also have a round up of the winter transfer window including a player that we have sold for £48m to an English giant.

Following this we play Young Boys who are hot on our tails in the Swiss Super League.

Part 30 - S16 Lionel Messi Joins
It's the Liechtenstein Challenge and it's a big episode. We have the Europa Conference League final against VFB Stuttgart, just our second European final of the challenge so far. As ever, a win would guarantee us a spot in the Europa League Group Stage for season 17, whilst defeat would see us remain in the Europa Conference League.

It's a chance for the second treble of the career too as we take a look at the league season where we secured our fifth straight Swiss Super League title and yet another Liechtenstein Cup.

Part 31 - S16 Europa Conference League Final
After the completion of a magnificent treble in season 16, confidence is high as we enter season 17. Following our victory in the Europa Conference league it does mean we go straight into the Europa League Group Stage for season 17 and we kick this video off by watching the live draw to see who we will be up against.

We also take a look at some departures and arrivals at the club and play an early league match against Young Boys who have made a flying start to the season.

Part 32 - S17 Faith Renewed
With a nice lead at the top of the Swiss Super League we have the opportunity to extend it with an away game against St. Gallen where two Liechtenstein youngsters will start for us. Before the game we catch up with our league form and our Europa League group stage campaign.

We also take a look at the National Team which came VERY close to making history!

Part 33 - S17 Staying Strong
It's the latter stages of season 17 and we have the first leg of our Europa League Quarter Final tie against Athletic Bilbao as we attempt to win the competition for the first ever time.

Before the game we take a look at the winter transfer dealings which include a few departures for a combined fee of £51 million and a couple of new additions.

Part 34 - S17 Europa League Quarter Final
It's season 18 and unfortunately, in terms of European football, we are back at square one. We play against Slovan Bratislava in the Europa Conference League but there is lots more to cover before that.

We look at season 17, our new signings and departures, the club finances and facilities and the prospect of a brand new stadium for FC Balzers!

Part 35 - S18 Square One
The curtain is all but closed on season 18 but we have one huge game remaining. The Super League and Liechtenstein Cup have both been secured yet again but we have our third Europa Conference League Final to play. We can win the competition for a third time and complete another treble if we beat Watford. A win would also secure Europa League football for season 19!

Before the game we take a look at the season and the signings we made in the winter as well as our most recent youth intake.

Part 36 - S18 Another Final
It's a new season and the Europa League Group Stage draw has been relatively kind to us as we begin our 3rd ever Europa League campaign. Today we play against Zulte Waregem of Belgium away from home as we attempt to win the tournament for the first time.

Prior to the game we take a look at the events of the summer transfer window as a number of players were deemed surplus to requirements.
