4 Interesting Football Manager 2023 Challenges | FM23

Each of these Football Manager 2023 challenges can go some way to adding more freshness to your FM experience.


If you find it hard to go about building something in FM as you always go down the same route, then change it up. To help you make the right call with regard to building a challenge, we have put together some ideas that you can try out. These are not challenges in the official sense but more long-term official challenges that you could build to make your saves more interesting.

So, what are some ways that you can make your next FM2023 save a little more complex and rewarding as you coach?
 

1. The Borders Challenge


If you tend to manage teams of a similar size in FM, it is easy to keep buying your star picks. If you like a player and you know they can fulfil a role that you like, it is very easy to keep on signing the same person. As you will probably have found, though, it can get a little boring!

So, why not enforce a new challenge on yourself? For this challenge, you can only sign players from your based nation. So, if you are playing in England, you can only sign English players. However, to help add more variety, you can also only sign players from nations who share a border with your based nation. So, for England, that would be Scotland and Wales.

This challenge forces you to go outside your comfort zone, and it ends up creating some very interesting squad developments. You might find it forces you to look at the roles and stats as opposed to just signing a player that you like in real-life and forcing them to adapt to your system.

This is a fun challenge and one that can really make you focus on development over big-name deals.
 

2. The Star Seller Challenge


Another great challenge to set for yourself is one that we often ignore in FM – selling our stars. Most of us just empty the transfer budget and keep signing our stars to increasingly huge new deals. Therefore, this challenge asks you to do one thing: sell a ‘star’ player every summer transfer window. Want to make it even harder? Then sell a star player every window – summer and winter.

This is a fun challenge for one reason: it means you always need to keep adapting your team. You cannot get comfortable building a framework whereby you always know that you can rely upon your star player to deliver. This asks you to really adjust and adapt quite massively and means your team is always in a state of improvement and development.

Many of us last 3-5 seasons at a time, building a squad that stays in place for much of that length of time. By having to sell, you stop getting used to building a foundational spine and instead have to keep making progress. For that reason, selling a star can be one of the best things that you can do to help keep a challenge intriguing.

3. The New System Challenge


This is more of a tactical one and one that many of us do not adhere to at all. When you take over a team, it is common that you end up with one key formation and then build small adjustments to that. A 4-2-3-1 can become a 4-3-3, for example, but we tend to stick to the main primary idea. With this challenge, you are asked to change to a whole new system at the start of each new season.

This means going from a 3-5-2 to a 4-3-3, a 4-3-3 to a 4-4-2, and so on. It means always changing how your team plays, forcing you to adapt players to new roles and never getting too comfortable. This is an endearing challenge because you need to always be looking for the next innovation. It means that you can be more ruthless with sales, too, as you stop worrying about your primary system having a lynchpin position that you cannot do without.

By always changing your formation, you force yourself to keep adapting and growing as a coach. It is fun to challenge yourself and see how diverse your tactics can become whilst still being successful, too!

4. The Academy Challenge


This is a classic challenge, but one that just about any FM can enjoy. You take over a club that is famed for its success on the transfer market, such as Chelsea, and you use only academy talent. You stop signing players entirely, instead working alone with what comes out of your academy.

The only players you are allowed to sign are players who previously played in your academy. If you really want some leeway, then allow yourself to sign players under the age of 18, and to sign players who were free agents over the age of 31. This gives you some parameters to fill youth team gaps, and to also make sure that you can have a couple of experienced old heads around your new creche.

This is fun as it asks you to really develop players whilst trying to get results – big teams do not give you long. You need to always be adapting whilst winning. The main reason to take on this challenge, though, is to help better appreciate just how hard it is to actually manage a football club. Play this for long enough, and you should get an appreciation as to why most Chelsea and Real Madrid managers buy stars as opposed to blood the youth!

Final Thoughts


Each challenge above offers something totally different and definitely, something more akin to a long-term save. If you are sick of just building a Champions League winning side in 3-5 seasons, though, this can add extra longevity and reward come the end. So, which FM23 challenge will you try out first?
