Challenges It’s a Long Way to the Top (Superstar Manager)


Recommended Posts

Gettin' robbed, Gettin' stoned, Gettin' beat up, Broken boned, Gettin' had, Gettin' took, I tell you folks, It's harder than it looks

All credit goes to @Scratch for creating this challenge.


Most of us here on Vibe have achieved total domination in the game: decades of winning the league, unbeatable in the Champions League, multiple World Cups. Let's face it - it's not that hard.

Of course, most of us have achieved that when starting at a strong club. There's nothing wrong with that, but could you do it if you had to start at the very bottom? Could youwork your way up to becoming a superstar manager? 

Here's the deal: You've never been a professional player. You don't have any contacts in the game. You're unemployed, with no reputation at all. You've just got to knock on clubs' doors until one of them buys into your spiel about being an FMM legend and decides to give you a chance.Once your foot's in the door, you have to work your way up to the superstar manager event; eg:


Do you have what it takes? If so, try to cement your place at the top of the leaderboard by getting there quickest (in game). But be warned: It's a long way to the top!.


To keep this fair, you must start with only England (all divisions) loaded. No shortcuts by getting a job in a lower division in a country with only a couple of divisions. 

You only get the event once, so if you are not starting from scratch, you will need to delete your game.cfg file. On Android, this is found in the Documents>Sports Interactive>Football Manager Mobile 2020>normal>cache folder. If someone can tell me where it is on iPhone, I'll add it here.

You are allowed to change clubs if you like, but please note the definition of the Achievement:


You need to be a club over 5 years to achieve it, so changing clubs will set you back.


  • You must chose a starting Reputation of Unknown and a Coaching Badge of None.

  • You must load England only, with all divisions (Vanarama North/South).

  • You must start unemployed.

  • You can change clubs, but only within England obviously. NOTE: Changing clubs will delay the superstar manager event as discussed above.

  • You can take an international job if you earn it, but you cannot start with it.

  • Screenshots needed as evidence (a career here on Vibe is recommended):

    • The Manager Profile screen immediately after starting

    • The Manager History screen at the end of each season

    • Screenshots of any job changes

    • The "<Manager> celebrates managerial recognition" event (shown above) with the date achieved

    • The Manager Profile screen immediately after the superstar manager event (Manager Points will be used as a tie breaker). 

  • No preferences/unlockables.

  • No uses of text changes, save editor or IGE at all.

  • No cheating or restarting.

  • If requested you must upload your save so we can check no cheating has taken place via the save editor, failure to do this will result in you being rejected from the leader board.

  • SI databases only.

  • No Myclub or created players.
