Huge List of Challenges and Save Ideas for Football Manager 2023

Looking for a Football Manager 2023 save ideas? Well, here are loads of them that you can tackle in your next FM23 save.

Looking for a Football Manager 2023 save ideas? Well, here are loads of them that you can tackle in your next FM23 save.


Don't know which challenge or save idea you would start in Football Manager 2023? Don't worry; we have prepared a huge list of ideas for you that we have collected from everywhere and put in one place.

1. Beating the Big Brother


In this FM23 challenge, the goal is to take the smaller team in the city and try to overtake the bigger team in the same city. For example, Paris FC are the little brother in the city, while Paris Saint Germain are dominating the capital. The challenge is to conquer the city and become the best team in the city.

2. Into the Future


Into the future is one of the most interesting ideas for a save in Football Manager 2023, as you don't know what you will get. In this save, you will simulate the game for as many years as you wish. It could be five years, 15 years or even 70 years. What's interesting about it is that the game can be utterly randomized with transfers, new gens, and clubs being promoted or relegated. Every time you will simulate the game forward, the outcome will almost always be different. Once you choose a date to simulate, you can pick a team to manage and start managing them in the future.

3. Journeyman challenge


A journeyman challenge is probably one of the most popular saves in FM 2023. In Journeyman save, you will need to load as many leagues as your computer can run and start unemployed with the lowest manager stats (no coaching badges and Sunday league footballer experience). The Journeyman save is a great one for hardcore players and players that want to explore the different leagues that the game has to offer. The goal of the save is to be at many teams as you can while progressing to glory.

4. Sleeping Giant


A sleeping giant is a team that was successful in the past but have fallen over the years. The aim of this save is to take a club that is no longer successful like they were in the past and try to bring them back the glory—teams, for example, Manchester United, Juventus and Nottingham Forest.


5. Director of Football challenge


Director of Football save can give you some stressful or fun times if you decide to go with this option. In this Football Manager 2023 save, you will choose a team by your choice and hire the best director of football you could possibly get. Why this save can give you a stressful time you are asking, because you will need to give your director of football most of the responsibilities. 

The direction that your save will be going is not in your hands as your director of football will be making the transfer, staff, scouting and contract negotiations. You will need to follow his steps and try to manage the team under the circumstances. They can be in your favour or going against you, depending on the director of football decisions. 


6. Athletic Bilbao challenge


A save with Athletic Bilbao can be quite challenging if you decide to start your managerial journey with them. Athletic Bilbao have a strict transfer policy; you are only allowed to sign Basque players. This transfer policy offers a very challenging save as the variety of players that you are allowed to sign is very minimal.

7. Lower League to Glory


Lower League to Glory can be a very long save, depending on how far the team is from the top division. In this FM 23 save, you will pick a team from the lowest possible division in the country and try to bring them to glory. This save can be very fun and emotional because you can get attached to the team as the save progresses.

8. Club and Country challenge


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 on the national stage while helping you to succeed on the European stage as well.

9. Homegrown Challenge


Picking this type of save can give you some tough time. In the Homegrown FM 2023 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 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 2023 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 of managing in. Try to explore more leagues, such as in East Europe, South America and Asia.


11. The Graham Potter career challenge


Start in the fourth tier of Swedish football and try and make it to the top six of English football. Follow the steps of the real-life manager, Graham Potter, with the most Football Manager journey.

12. Yorkshire challenge 


Try and get as many Yorkshire-based teams, such as Barnsley Football Club, Doncaster Rovers, F.C Halifax Town, Harrogate Town etc., into the Premier League as possible. Eventually, you want to get a clean sweep of trophies with just Yorkshire-based teams.

13. The Proclaimers' challenge 


Starting at a Fife club, your aim is to win the top division. Once you have done that, you have to move to a club 500 miles away. Then after that, move to another club 500 miles away.

14. The City Group challenge


Win the league with every single team in the City Football Group. You eventually want to choose one of them and try and get them a higher reputation than Manchester City. List of clubs in the City Group challenge; Club Atletico Torque, New York City FC, Troyes, Girona FC, Lommel, NAC Breda, Sichuan Jiuniu, Mumbai City FC, Melbourne City FC and Yokohama F Marinos.


15. Oldham Athletic challenge 


The FIRST EVER Premier League team in non-league - they have new local owners, the squad needs a revamp, and they have no manager in real life. If there is a club more perfect for managing in Football Manager 2023, we are yet to see it.

16. Brexit challenge 


Pick a proper Brexit team like Millwall or Burnley (forget about their recent changes, they don't know what they're doing) You can only sign players from the UK; you can only sign players with 14+ aggression; you MUST play 4-4-2.

17. A-Z of football challenge 


Start unemployed with Sunday League experience. This can only apply to teams that begin with the letter A. You must win a trophy, resign and move on to the next letter. If you get sacked, you must stay on that letter until you win a trophy.

18. The European team in Africa challenge 


AD Ceuta FC are a Spanish club in mainland Africa. They currently play in the Spanish third division (D3) while being located outside Europe, that is in Morocco. Can you bring the Champions League to Africa?

19. East German challenge 


An East German team has NEVER won the Bundesliga; quite unbelievable, right? Turn a team like Dynamo Dresden or FC Magdeburg into German national champions.

20. Beleneses challenge 


Two-year-long transfer ban. A relegation-level squad. A board that has a minimum expectation of the top half. Approximately 300 fans. Don't own a stadium. Terrible facilities. Good luck.

21. Sir Alex Ferguson's challenge 


Run Football Manager till November 6th and take over the club in 19th position on that date. Then you have to replicate exactly what Sir Alex Ferguson did with Manchester United. Yeah, he was quite good, wasn't he.


22. Pentagon challenge 


We ALL know this one. If you don't, you've lived under a rock. The aim here is to win the top five continental trophies in the five playable continents available in the game. Easy.


23. Glory Hunter challenge 


We all want to be Jose Mourinho. Your aim in this challenge is to win the main division and domestic cup in each main European league. You also have to win the Champions League and Europa League.

24. Taunton Town challenge 


IT'S THEIR FIRST YEAR IN THE GAME. They recently got promoted to the Vanarama South for the first time and are literally perfect for a Football Manager save. Continue the fairytale and take them to the Premier League.

25. Southampton challenge 


This challenge is simple. Each year at the start of the season, you have to sell your top three performing players. That's the only rule. You're also allowed to keep James Ward-Prowse, no matter how well he does.

26. Unemployed challenge 


Start unemployed with no badges and no experience. You have to win EVERY SINGLE domestic trophy in England. This includes Vanarama South, Vanarama National etc. Yes, even that pizza trophy.

27. Wisla Krakow challenge 


Wisla Krakow are the third most successful Polish team. They most recently won the league in 2011. Now they're languishing in the second division of Polish football.... in 8th. BRING THEM BACK

28. Deportivo de La Corona 


In 2004 Deportivo were in the Champions League semi-final. Like Leeds, another semi-finalist that year, they had a huge downfall. Unlike Leeds, they still haven't recovered. They're still in the third tier of Spanish football. Save them.

29. Build a league challenge 


Choose a league that is good but just outside the top five leagues. Such as the Eredivisie or Liga Portugal. Your aim is to build up the entire league, so eventually, they're one of the best leagues and are top of the UEFA coefficient.

30. Ibiza challenge 


Manage UD Ibiza and just have fun with it. I did the save last year, and it was an absolute blast. You will have players skipping training to go clubbing, and you don't even care. They also have a DJ at the stadium.

31. Dorking Wanderers challenge 


Dorking was started by a group of mates in a pub in 1999. After 12 promotions in 23 years, they are now in the Conference and played Oldham, a club that used to be in the Premier League, in their first away game. Real-life FM. Need I say more?

32. The Cholo challenge 


Sim the Spanish first division until November 6th and take over whoever is in 10th. Your aim is to break Real Madrid/Barcelona dominance whilst playing ultra-aggressive/defensive tactics. Don Simeone.

33. The Leonardo DiCaprio challenge


You can't have a player over the age of 25. As soon as they reach that age, you have to sell them. Try and dominate the world while only playing players under 25.

34. Never made the Premier League challenge 


Never made the Premier League challenge

None of these teams have ever got to the Premier League. Get there with every single team in this picture.
