Disclaimer89's English Premier League Chairman Game



##There have been rule changes made since the last game, small tweaks!##

For those who don't know what a Chairman game is, it's essentially a game where 20 people become the chairmen of all the clubs in a league, and they become responsible for setting budgets, changing managers, making certain transfers, and managing certain aspects of the club. Everybody who takes part will run their decisions through me, I will confirm they are OK and edit them into the game, and then that person announces what they have done in the thread.

So, here are the rules below, give them a read and follow them if you want to join.​


I will be playing with the last team standing, so that everyone who is joining the game gets a choice of at least 2 teams.


No teams available at this moment..

PM me to join the waiting list.

Waiting list:

-DJ Lambton
-TheCelticKid

Joining the Game

Entries will be served on a first come first served basis after this.

1) To sign up you must have a copy of FM15. This is because I will be running my game on FM15 and so you need the same version to ensure that transfers are done correctly.

2) *This is really important* If you join you agree to put some effort into your press releases. If you won't be able to spare a few minutes to write a proper post then don't sign up.

3) You must be able to regularly check the thread for updates, read your PMs, and follow the rules of the game. Failure to be active or repeatedly violating the rules of the game will see you being removed from it.

4) Before joining, read ALL of the rules posted below and make sure you understand ALL of the rules.

If you do not understand something then send me a PM or message me on steam(discla1m3r) and I will explain it for you.

5) Lastly, remember guys, it is only a game..



Still interested?...great!!
So, if you're interested then READ ALL THE RULES (below) and then PM me with the following information:

Your chosen team:
Your Chairman's name:


Answer the following 3 Yes/No Questions to help me help you:

Have you Read the rules?
Have you participated in a chairman game before?
Do you fully understand how this will work? If, no what aspect?

Rules

Playing the Game:


General
1) You may sack your manager, or any other member of staff, at any time. Doing so will require you pay the remainder of their contract in full.

2) If you are relegated you MAY take control of a promoted team.

3) Only realistic managerial appointments will be allowed, so it is not possible to being Pep Guardiola to Burnley. The same rule applies for other positions too. HOWEVER you may be unrealistic with other players managers(C2C -eg Mourinho to Burnley) IF you can agree a sum.

4) Signing a manager from another team will require you to pay a compensation value of the remainder of their contract. the new managers wage will be his current wage he was on plus 25% If it is a human controlled team you must agree a compensation fee. If you wish to promote from within then the unemployed rules apply. If the manager you wish to sign is unemployed, here is the key:

Worldwide: Your current managers wage x3
Continental x2.5
National and below x2

5) You may set your transfer & wage budgets to whatever you like, (for your AI manager) but if you put them too high you run the risk of your club having financial problems in the future, so I advise against going too high.
6) Facilities may be upgraded at any time, however at a cost:
?2,500,000 for a minor improvement to your youth system.
?3,000,000 for a minor improvement to your training facilities.
?2,500,000 for a minor improvement to your Junior Coaching.
?2,500,000 for a minor improvement to your Youth recruitment.

I may allow stadiums to be upgraded in future seasons, but not initially. Any upgrades done will come directly out of your bank balance. Please PM me if you want to have an upgrade. A minor upgrade is 1+.

7) I will be uploading the save game file every transfer window. The results/updates will be posted on the thread (monthly- game time).
I will be setting the days for regular updates. For now I am going to put Monday and Thursday as the update days, this may change in the future(depending on work schedule and such). So that will be 2 game time months per week; which is a good steady pace.



Transfers


Transfers

First of all:
There are 5 different types of Signings:
-C2C (Chairman to Chairman)
-DOM (domestic - Championship and lower)
-FOR (Foreign)
-FORu18 -(Foreign under 18 - youth signing)
-FREE (Free signings)

These are all explained in detail below



1) To sign a player from another team in your league you must contact the Chairman of that club pm via and agree a value with them. You can then calculate their wage using one of the rules below.
Both Chairmen will then need to PM me with the agreed amount and quote the message showing you have agreed the transfer/loan, and once I have confirmed it then you can announce the transfer.

2) The number of players that you can sign is limited to the following:

C2C
Transfers between clubs in the league - Unlimited
Loans between clubs in the league - 2

DOM
Transfers from clubs in your nation, below your league - 2
Loans from Championship and lower - 2.

FOR
Transfers from foreign clubs - Maximum of 2 in the Summer, maximum of 1 in January.
Loans from foreign clubs - 1

FORu18
Transfers of youth players* from foreign clubs - Maximum of 1 in the Summer, maximum of 1 in January.
*A youth player is classified as a player aged 18 or under.

FREE
Free signings - 3 per season


Only 1 player from any specific team is allowed. (for example you cant loan 3 Man City players)


3) The price of players is as follows:
Transfers between clubs in the league - Agreed between Chairmen
Transfers from clubs in your nation, below your league - 1.5 the players current value
Transfers from foreign clubs - 2 times the players current value
Transfers of youth players from foreign clubs - Double the players current value IF they have not represented their nation.
3x times the players current value if they have represented their nation.

4) Loan fees have been simplified from the last game:
-C2C(chairman to chairman) a loan may be agreed , set at 100% covered. There will be no loan fee(for eg. Nani loaned to spurs 100% wages and 4mil loan fee for the season ? not valid)
- DOM(championship and lower) loans are:
Predicted League Position of 1st to 6th: 250k loan fee and 100% wages.
Predicted League Position of 7th to 11[SUP]th[/SUP]: 175k loan fee and 100% wages.
Predicted League Position of 12th to 20[SUP]th[/SUP]: 125k loan fee and 100% wages.


-FGN(foreign) loans are set at 100% wages
Predicted League Position of 1st to 6th: 250k loan fee and 100% wages.
Predicted League Position of 7th to 11[SUP]th[/SUP]: 175k loan fee and 100% wages.
Predicted League Position of 12th to 20[SUP]th[/SUP]: 125k loan fee and 100% wages.



6)PM me the player that you want to sign on a free transfer. Then at the end of the transfer window I will put them all in the thread and there will be a blind auction. By that I mean every Chairman can submit contracts to the players, these offers will be sent to me via PM. After the auction has finished the players will join the team that offers him the highest wage.

7) You may release any players from their contract at any time, but will have to pay the remainder of their contract to do so.

8) If you wish to sell players then you need to post them in the thread as available. Other Chairmen can then make offers for them if they wish. If they are not sold to another Chairmen in the league then I will set them as transfer listed in the game, this does not guarantee that they will be sold however.


Wages

(Wages for players in a C2C transfer remain frozon for the first season)

1) This is quite complicated, so please read it carefully.
The wages that players will be signed on will vary depending on the player you're signing and the club that you're at.
Predicted League Position of 1st to 6th:
Player aged 18 of less - 1.75 times current wage
Players aged 19 to 32 with less than 10 international caps - 1.75 times current wage
Players aged 19 to 32 with more than 10 international caps - 2 times current wage
Players aged 33 or over - 1.5 times current wage

Predicted League Position of 7th to 11th
Players aged 18 or less - 1.5 times current wage
Players aged 19 to 32 with less than 10 international caps - 1.5 times current wage
Players aged 19 to 32 with more than 10 international caps - 1.75 times current wage
Players aged 33 or over - 1.25 times current wage

Predicted League Position of 12th to 20th
Players aged 18 or less - 1.25 times current wage
Players aged 19 to 32 with less than 10 international caps - 1.25 times current wage
Players aged 19 to 32 with more than 10 international caps - 1.75 times current wage
Players aged 33 or over - Same as current wage




Finally...


1) Nothing is to be announced in this thread until I have told you it is OK.

2) Anything you want to do must be sent to me in a PM. I will then check it, and if it is all OK I will reply and let you know that you can announce it in the thread.

3) Failure to confirm things with me before announcing them will see you removed from the game.

4) No complaining all over the thread, if you have an issue then PM me and we can discuss it!

5) Take into consideration exactly how much work is involved in running this game, the editor changes, wage/transfer calculations among other things takes countless hours!

You are responsible for managing your own budgets!

I will keep this updated and will you also have the chance to view your finances on the save game.


Remember if you go into administration, you will have points deducted, have to sell players, a transfer embargo placed upon the club and probably end up getting yourself relegated!!...

Chairman of the Year

Season 1 - TheJoshster: Man City
Josh managed to win the league with Man City whilst under a transfer embargo for the entire season...He was forced to sell key players to out weigh the debt whilst not making any big signings..

Season 2 - bcfc1: Cardiff
bcfc managed to take a promoted team in Cardiff, to a 7th place finish in his first season. A fantastic achievement which was merited by all participating chairmen resulting in him winning the COTY award for season 2.​

It seems I have to find other options for trading Zamora and Dunne, somehow I managed to end up with a team I wanted!

No announcing is the rule I guess! But I'm sure Disclaimer will update with taken teams to prevent people PM'ing him 15 suggestions before they get an unpicked team.

I am really looking forward to start the mind games with whoever takes over my main rival!

Well reubomad, we might be up for some business after all! Our clubs have a history of making good deals! (for my team) :D

Also, the "classic" Liverpool-Leicester rivalry is bound to kick off! Looking forward to that mid-table clash... ;)
