Soccer Manager 2018 Out Now

Youth League/Cup

Recommended Posts

While the new Update has brought in some excellent new features I feel they have missed an opportunity to bring young players on in all leagues.

Super Cups are all very well but as always will be contested by the top teams with the top rated players.

Would`nt it be good if there was a Youth League or at the least a Youth Cup/League Cup?

What`s the `point of having seven or eight young players in your squad rated for example average 78 when they are very unlikely to get game time if your team has an average of say 85? Only on exceptional occasions when you have many injuries,suspensions etc are you likely to use them.

A youth league would encourage managers to sign youth players and use them and the youth players playing would give them the opportunity to increase their rating if they were playing regularly.

Just my thoughts.

Thanks for the comments and suggestions! We appreciate all feedback and will consider it when making improvements to the game in future updates.

The reason for Youth players is mostly to train them up so that they can become valuable first-team players as you reach later years in the game and your players begin to get old and retire. It's a good idea to play them sometimes to keep their stats increasing. It is also possible for star players with very high potentials to appear in your Youth promotions, so its definitely worth using and investing in your Youth academy.
