The EU flag with a falling star because of Brexit

The Brexit Challenge on Championship Manager 01/02

If/when the UK leaves the EU, there will be ramifications for the English footballing system.

But who knows what they’ll be exactly and how they’ll manifest. Changes like Brexit often breed challenges on football games like Championship Manager and Football Manager and this is no exception.

On the champman0102 forums, the guys put together a Brexit challenge as part of their challenge subforum. You have to manage Millwall (because they are the closest team to Lambeth, who had the biggest Remain vote percentage in the country) and play 5 seasons with only EU players. That means no UK players and obviously no other non-EU players either.

Looking through the thread, many have struggled but Faceless did an amazing job signing a lot of 30+ year old legends including Iniesta at one point. There’s also Redknapp69 who pulled off some remarkable feats. I’ve not checked if there’s an official challenge for Football Manager but that might appeal more to some of you. Either way, it looks fun and an interesting way to twist on the Brexit drama that’s going on (and anyone who isn’t racist or otherwise a bigot wishes it wasn’t at all – I voted Remain).
