Location Of Teams

Suggested* Additional Nations To Load

All Bordering Countries

*As always this is only a suggestion, the leagues listed are in order of importance, feel free to run as many or as little leagues as you think your system can handle. The setup above gives a nice regional feel.

It is advisable however to run as many top tier leagues of major nations as you can to keep the continental club competitions competitive

Media Prediction, Board Expectations and Title Odds

*Your odds and board expectations may vary slightly from save to save
*There is currently an issue with Media Predictions showing incorrectly in the game. Teams are listed by Title Odds. Unfortunately this makes it hard to place the unmanageable "B" teams, so they are at the bottom as they are ineligible for promotion anyway.
