Once you choose a date to simulate to, you can pick a team to manage and start managing them in the future.

3. Journeyman

Club and Country Save Football Manager 2021
To make this save ultra hard try doing it with San Marino

In club and country save, the aim is to win the Champions League with a club and the World Cup with a nation. You have to manage the team that is based in the nation that you have chosen, and you have to manage them at the same time. You will notice along with the save, the youth players that you have produced through the academy will help you to succeed in the national stage while helping you to succeed in the European stage as well.

9. Homegrown Challenge


Picking this type of a save can give you some tough time. In the Homegrown FM 2021 challenge, the rules are simple; you are not allowed to sign any players; the only players that you are allowed to sign are those who are from your youth academy. There are no restrictions on signing staff members. The aim of this challenge is to win the Champions League with as many homegrown players as possible.

10. Picking a Team That Isn't in the Top 5 Leagues

Many Football Manager players, even the veteran ones, are always stuck at managing the team in the top leagues. Picking a team that isn't in the top 5 leagues gives you a chance to explore the Football world and learn about new leagues in places that you have never heard of. Football Manager offers 118 leagues in 53 different countries. The fun comes when you win a title in a league that you have never thought you would ever be thinking managing in.
