Unlock The Complete English Football League System Down To Level 23 In Football Manager 2016
With an increased media coverage and more revenues to the top flights, the gap between the professional football leagues and amateur leagues has increased in the last decade. Some would claim that football has lost it soul and that the pure joy of football lies in the magical wonder of lower league football, where the stands are filled with locals, your neighbors down the street, fellow co-workers or citizens of the same town as you. While the crowd can’t be compared to the 75,000 spectators at Old Trafford it’s an amazing atmosphere surrounding the local lads which makes up the starting XI of F.C. United of Manchester or any local clubs in regional divisions.
Two completely different worlds you might say. The excitement surrounding the match might be the same either it’s Manchester United or FC United, but the conditions for a victory are different as the players are amateurs, the training facilities and stadium facilities are as worst as it gets. It’s in the lower leagues real football is being played and it’s in a lower league management save the greatest challenge of Football Manager lays within. Either you start off your lower league journey as manager of FC United or any club found deep down in the national league system, either it is England, which we will focus on here, or Argentina for that matters, you are certain to test your managerial abilities.
Today we give you the opportunity to take up on the ultimate Football Manager challenge by handing you the FM16 database which unlocks the complete English League System down to level 23(!). Here you will be able to take up the managerial positions in the English lower leagues and hunt for promotions under the worst conditions a manager may ever work under!
The FM16 English lower leagues level 23 database gives you the ability to select from 97 leagues and a over a thousand playable clubs below Vanarama Conference N/S until the Mid-Sussex Football League Division Ten at Level 23. This custom Football Manager database is one of the biggest English lower league databases ever created and the English lower leagues level 11 database (single download available below) are both close to 100% realistic featuring both cups and regional tournaments such as the FA Vase and FA Trophy.
Frankly, an English lower leagues management journey is one of the greatest and hardest challenges of Football Manager, where the chance of taking one of the local clubs from the bottom of the English league system to the top is nearly impossible – but can you do it? Here the absolute goal is to hunt for promotions, from the bottom level 23 at first to the next, or from the Isthmian Premier Division to Vanarama North / South depending on your choice of level of challenge. Here the amount of obstacles to succeed are too many to avoid getting sacked at your first try.
Here the excitement of simply winning the next match or reaching the round 1 of the FA Cup are as exciting as winning the English Premier League with a mid-table club – can you do better than Leicester, become a management legend, a hero for future generations?

About the FM16 English Lower Leagues Level 24 Database
The massive Football Manager 2016 English Lower Leagues Level 23 database created by Dan BHTFC of Sigames forum, looks to replicate the complete English league pyramid featuring promotions and relegations, cups and tournaments for all the football leagues of England including correct dates and prize money for them. All the different non league tables contains real clubs and league names, and over 1000(!) English amateur clubs are added to make it as realistic as possible. This includes added correct clubs to stadium locations and official club colours.
This FM16 database unlocks a high number of leagues below Conference North / South, from the three divisions of the Regional Premier Divisions in level 7 (Isthmian Premier, Southern Premier and Northern Premier Division) to the 17 regional leagues of level 10. After the English lower league level 10 at least one league is added until the bottom level 23 of the English League Pyramid.
New for the Football Manager 2016 version is the ability to take up a managerial position in one of the 22 new league divisions included for FM16. This means new clubs are available to try as most of the clubs in the lower league level 10 and below has been created from scratch. A total of 23050 database changes has been made to make it as realistic as possible.
For those who are interested in numbers, the Argentinian lower league database level 6 comes with 26287 changes in the latest version.
It’s a massive work done so far with this database and hopefully more leagues will be added below the English lower leagues Level 11 in the coming months.
The Complete English League pyramid is one of the most honorable league systems in the world. The English football pyramid consists of 23 levels in total spread around the nation after its geographical location. The national league system found below League 2 is split up after the different counties to provide amateur clubs a suitable level of competition within their region.
For UK citizens, it finally gives you the chance to play with your English local club in Football Manager 2016. And for everyone else, it gives us the ability to take up the challenge of a new lower league club in a foreign nation. Playing in the English lower leagues has never been better!
