Welcome to a brand new series of Football Manager 2017! This is something a little different that I wanted to try, and it involves bringing FIFA Ultimate Team Packs into Football Manager. Now I'd never do anything as blasphemous as actually play FIFA on here, but we are going to use FIFA packs to build our squad.
As a base, we're using the London Stadium and West Ham United. We've completely gutted the squad and we're going to use the in-game editor to bring the players we get in packs. We're capped at a maximum of 30 first-team players and we're allowed to buy and sell as we wish.
The game will run as a normal FM save - but - we will open one new pack at the start of each episode. The pack we open depends on where we are in the League:
Bottom Half: 25k
Top Half: 50k
Champions League Places: 100k
Each episode will run for roughly six matches to give an even spread of packs and players in a season.
This series will evolve over time, so if you have ideas and suggestions, post them below!
