Below is a list a teams who you can rise to glory on FM2020 and and have an impressive save with some potentially impressive moments.
Notts County - Vanarama National League
Founded in 1862, Notts County are a professional football club currently playing in the Vanarama National League. The club from Nottingham are the oldest professional club in the world, playing on a 19k all-seater stadium Meadow Lane. Notts County have a cherished history and are renowned across the world as one of the 1st professional football teams. They are nicknamed the "Magpies" due to the black and white colour of their home strip, which inspired Italian club Juventus to adopt the colours for their kit in 1903.
The club enjoyed probably their best spell of success during the 1890s. Although now enduring a nine year barren spell, having not won a competition since 2010, The Magpies still have a history of which they can be justly proud. Notts Co won the FA Cup in 1894 and finished runners-up once, won the English 2nd tier in 1897, 1914 and 1923 and finished runners-up on two occasions, won the English 3rd tier in 1931 and 1950 and finished runners-up on two occasions, won the English 4th tier in 1971, 1998 and 2010 and finished runners-up once.
Can you bring them back to glory where they belong?
AZ Picerno - Italian Serie C/C
Founded in 1919, AZ Picerno recently celebrated promotion from Serie D to Serie C/Cin the Italian football league, but they find themselves with media predictions of finishing 18th in Serie C/C and being relegated back down to Italian Non League. With a relatively young team (17 players under the age of 30) a team is set for a long term stay in the Italian football league. You start the save with £120,000 of transfer budget and £10,000 of free wage budget.
As a club which is currently enjoying its best ever spell of success - their last competition win coming as recently as 2019 - Rossoblu are a club with a growing history. Picerno won the Italian 4th tier for the only time in 2019, won the Italian 5th tier for the only time in 2015, and won the Eccellenza Basilicata Cup in 2014.
Can you defy media expectations and avoid relegation and maybe take Picerno to the very top of Italian Football?
