FM19 Challenging German Teams: 5 Best Teams to Test Your Skills

Creative Team FM19 Teams, Teams Leave a Comment

I have some challenges that I want you guys to try. As you may know, football manager is really an interesting solid game. And it’s really challenging – could be frustrating too. But I want the game to be livelier for you. So, I have decided to create a list of challenging teams to manage in Germany for now. Spain is next.

This list contains teams that really need improvements. They all need that manager who can drive them to glory. I think you would find this fun and captivating. All you have to do is see the information attached to them and take the hot seat of any of them in FM19.

Now to make this more fun, you can give us a report of the team (from this list) you managed. And how many seasons it took you to get them to Bundesliga. But before I get to the list, let me just chip in some simple rules.

The rules are simple

  • No cheating. Don’t quit and reload the game once your managerial debut starts. You can only quit and reload during preseasons. Just be sincere to yourself.
  • No match skipping. Don’t go on a holiday just to skip a match. You can only do that during preseasons.
  • And no use of FM editor at all. Just give yourself a real challenge and see your true capabilities in the football management.

The List

The teams here are all playing in the third tier of the German football league pyramid, known as German Third Division. They almost have the same quality of squad and status. Moreover, the descriptions of the clubs listed are provided to help you make a choice.

Which team do you wish to manage?

Ideally, it should take you only 2 seasons to get any of these teams to Bundesliga. But can you do it in 3 seasons? It will be really fun if you show us how long it took to get Bundesliga promotion.

The next challenge is qualifying for Euro competitions. Show us how many seasons, starting from your first season in Bundesliga, it took your team to qualify for any Euro competitions.

If you get sacked, then Game Over.

Tweet us your achievements with screenshots and with the hashtag #fm19challenge. Let’s see who’s the main boss. Add a screenshot of your team’s domestic league history.  Below is our tweeter feeds. Once you tweet us, it shows here. Let’s make it fun, shall we?
