Squad and match rules FM 2012

Match and squad rules in EVERY single country in Europe. Best list to get you informed before you start playing with any club in Europe, about the league rules regarding to max, foreign players in the first eleven, max. number of players in the squad, max. number of players of this and that age etc...

This is for sure one of the biggest info's we ever made, and once again thanks to Neso from FMB-Career, you MUST check his progress with Leicester City!

Okay so  here you go, inform yourself :-)
