Guidelines

1: TEAM SHEETS

Team sheets are due each week on a Wednesday and Saturday by 8pm GMT.

** If you are still in the trial stage of your career (first three games), a missing sheet will result in immediate sacking. Otherwise you are permitted 3 missed sheets in a row before you are removed, or 6 throughout the season.

Two errors in a team sheet will result in a T tactic given to the team.

In the event of a league round of either senior league being entirely free of errors and missing sheets, each club in that league will get a £250,000 bonus to their finances.

  1A) Missing Sheets

 Sheeting is mandatory from Season 12 for teams. Failure to sheet will result in a T sheet being given.

 For U23 sheeting is not mandatory and a missing sheet will result in a 442N being given.

  1B) Min/Max Positions

 Below are the minimum and maximum allowed in each position.

Min_DF = 3   Max_DF = 5

Max_DM = 2

Min_MF = 0  Max_MF = 6

Max_AM = 3

Min_FW = 0  Max_FW = 4

 1C) Tactics

 

 Tactic			Bonus Against
N = Normal		E & A
L = Long Ball		C & N
P = Passing		L & N
C = Counter Attack	P & A
A = Attacking		D & E
D= Defensive		L & P
E = European		C & D

 

2: TRANSFERS

Teams may agree deals and transfer players between clubs.

Once a transfer is ready to be processed please start a thread in Transfer Processing which shows the player, club from and club to then price if there is a price. If it is a loan then replace price with loan.

Example:  S_Pienaar eve ths 10,000,000

 With Transfers they must have;

 1) all prices are in pounds

 2) Transfers need to be agreed by both teams and until both managers agree the transfer WILL NOT be processed

 3) Once a transfer has been processed the thread will be moved to the completed transfers section.

4) Managers may not go into debt to buy players and and transfers that would lead to debt will be cancelled by admin.

5) Transfers can not take teams above or below the squad caps and any transfer that would do this will be cancelled admin.

6) Players not in your roster (e.g. out on loan or about to sign) can be sold but you will need to ensure that the player is recalled from loan bought first in the transfer processing as deals are processed in order of placing.

Transfers are updated after weekly on a Sunday or Monday morning.

 2A) FMFA SALES

There are times when teams will have players that for whatever reason they are unable to sell on the open transfer market. To allow teams to sell these on there is the FMFA Sales where they can  be sold. The rules for this are

1) No player 20 or under in age can be sold to FMFA Sales .
2) No player under 22 rating (26 for goalkeepers) may be sold to FMFA. 
3) No player rated 25 or above (29 for goalkeepers) maybe sold to the FMFA.

4) Maximum 3 players maybe sold or bought per week per team.

5) You must ensure that any sales do not take your squad size below 20 or the sale will not be put through.

 

3) LOANS

Teams may loan players out to other clubs. The maximum loans allowed is:

Max Loans In: 2         Max Loans Out: 2

Please note that this is 2 per team so senior team is allowed 2 and so is the U23

 

4) SQUAD CAPS

All teams (senior and youth) must have at least 20 players on their roster and no more than 30 players.

If you have less than 20, a filler will be added to your team at a cost of £2,000,000 per week needed. If you have more than 30 players, you will have 1 week to reduce your squad size otherwise you will have the player removed and auctioned. You will receive 50% of the value. If it is the last processing day of the window, a player will be removed and auctioned immediately.

 

5) DEBT

Teams are not permitted to go into debt.

If a team goes into debt they will have a player auctioned off immediately and will be docked 5 points.

 

6) END OF SEASON RERATES

At the end of each season players of a certain age will get extra abs or abs removed on the following rates:

1-19 = 320 50 20

20-21 = 200 30 10

22-26 = 100 5 2

27-29 = 0 0 0

30 = -50 -5 -2

31 = -115 -50 -25

32 = -215 -110 -210

33 = -300 -242 -220

34 = -475 -350 -230

35+ = -500 -475 -550

 

7) AGING AND RETIREMENT

Players age on the 1 January every year and retire when they retire in real life at the end of the season closest to that date.

 

😎 MISCCELLANEOUS RULES

Gate receipts are earned for each match. In league games the home team will keep all gate receipts. In cup games they are shared between both teams.

Clubs will be charged wages monthly for the players in their roster. Wages will be taken once a month on last week of the month.

Managers must stay at a club for 1 full season before being eligible to apply for other jobs. Only exception to this rule is if the FA invites a manager to apply for a job.

 

9) U23 RULES

Each squad must have a minimum of 20 players.

Players can only be aged 23 or under.

The max skill for the U23 is 24 for outfield players and from season 16, 28 for goalkeepers.

Teams are allowed 2 players outside these ratings either over age of 23 or over rate of 24. If they are both over age and over rate then this player will count as the 2 allowed. Any players selected for this must also not be one of the strongest senior players in the senior team based on a team formation of 4-4-2.

Players may move freely between the seniors and U23, and players may be transferred freely between U23 teams, but the squad rules must be adhered to and movements or sales must be placed in the transfer processing and will be action according to the transfer rules
