New American League Chairman Game - Story


Nov 11, 2014


At the end of the 2013/14 season an audacious plan was launched to create a brand new American Football League in the USA. Finally a league without any of this “Soccer” rubbish would be present in USA. The plan was adopted by 22 ambitious Chairman who quickly began to found franchises across the USA.

Red=Premiership Blue= Championship

Each chairman has had the summer to build a 25 man squad along with a team of backroom staff, through 5 auction rounds. With a number of high profile names been attracted, fans across the world are eagerly awaiting the start of the season.

The football league has been divided into 2 divisions, comprising of the Dodge Premier League and the Bud Light Championship. The structure of these leagues can be seen below. There will also be a number of domestic trophies on offer throughout the season.

We shall soon find out who has created the most successful new franchise!

Dodge Premier League:

  • 12 teams
  • Each team plays each other 3 times
  • Top team wins the division
  • 12[SUP]th[/SUP] Place gets relegated to the Championship
  • 11[SUP]th[/SUP] and 10[SUP]th[/SUP] have a 2 leg relegation playoff

Joining the Game

1) To sign up you must have a copy of FM15.

2) 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 bother to sign up.

3) You must be able to regularly check the thread for updates, read your PMs, and follow the rules of the game.

4) Before joining, read ALL the rules below and make sure you understand them. If you do not understand something then PM me and I will explain it to you.

(Pretty much copying Disclaimer 89's - so thank you!)

Playing the game


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) 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

3) 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.

4) 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+.

5) I will be uploading the save game file every transfer window. The results/updates will be posted on the thread (monthly- game time).


First of all:
There are 5 different types of Signings:
-C2C (Chairman to Chairman)
-DOM (domestic - MLS and lower and USA Nationals)
-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:

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

Transfers from clubs within the MLS and lower and USA Nationals - 2
Loans from MLS and lower sides - 2.

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

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 signings - 3 per season

3) The price of players is as follows:

Transfers between clubs in the leagues - Agreed between Chairmen
Transfers from clubs in your nation and USA Nationals- 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

-C2C (chairman to chairman) a loan may be agreed , set at 100% covered. There will be no loan fee

- DOM (MLS and lower or USA Nationals) loans are:
Premiership Sides: 250k loan fee and 100% wages.
Championship Sides: 125k loan fee and 100% wages.

-FGN(foreign) loans are set at 100% wages
Premiership Sides: 250k loan fee and 100% wages.
Championship Sides: 125k loan fee and 100% wages.

5)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.

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

7) 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 Chairman in the league then I will set them as transfer listed in the game, this does not guarantee that they will be sold however.


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.

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

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

The New Beginning

"If the United States is ever going to become a true player on the international soccer scene and gain the ultimate prize of winning the World Cup, the country needs to start producing more talented players.
While that is a simplistic statement, it is more complex than it appears.
To really improve the ability of the players that will one day represent the U.S. National Team, changes have to be made on an academy level. Those changes need to start with the Domestic Pro Leagues...."
View attachment 246759

"Well since USA's outstanding performances at the last World Cup. There have been some changes, we see a whole new brand there today, with two pro leagues. With 22 teams split over 2 divisions, we must surely now be able to expect a bright future in the sport."

Johnny Vegas has claimed a “landslide victory” in his bid to claim control of Las Vegas Gamblers Football Club, one of many new additions to to the new revamped American League Structure.

The ultimate goal would be to take Las Vegas Gamblers Football Club, nicknamed the Gamblers, to the American Dodge Premier League, - that would mean a tough first season promotion, but Vegas seems to have got the better of Johnny as he has already placed a wager with local rival, Las Vegas Strip Foxes.

Vegas has previously revealed his concerns about the lack of American players rising through the ranks in the US.

Vegas said: ‘The lower echelons of American soccer — once a vital breeding ground for players such as Landon Donovan, Earnest “Earnie” Stewart, Brian McBride, Claudio Reyna, Brad Friedel, most of them had to leave America to seek better soccer options — and many American players were left withering away in the MLS. Now with the new re-vamp we can expect to see more and better talents than ever before, with the league anticipating a great worldwide reception, things are looking bright for not only us but for the other new franchises."

"A great looking backroom staff here, unfortunately the player drafts didn't work out to well, a well balanced team no doubt but with no real stand-out players, with the exception of Mario Mandzukic, who could well end up at arch-rivals at the end of season if the club dont finish higher than the Foxes, this could prove a long and hard season for The Gamblers."

The Jacksonville Sharks (an arena football team based in Jacksonville, Miami) today announced that they will be expanding their franchise in order to participate in the newly formed American League, sponsored by Dodge. The Sharks are the last team to confirm their participation in the highest division of the League.

The franchise has been bought out by Russian oligarch Anatoly Zolnerowich, whose advisors wasted no time in forming a squad capable of challenging for the title.

He has a potential to be a great national side player.

Ricky van Wolfswinkel - Ricky borned in the Netherlands and he is currently 26 years old. He is a decent striker, he played for Vitesse, Utrecht, Sporting Porto, and Norwich. He spent his last season at Saint-Étienne, and he also have 2 caps for Netherlands.

Aleksandar Mitrovic - Aleksandar borned in Yugoslavia in 1994 in Smederevo, Serbia. He is currently 20 years old and played for Teleoptik, Partizan and joined to Anderlecht in 2013. He has very great potential and he will be a key player in 1-2 years. He is already a very good player and he can shine for the top. He also have 13 U19 apps and 5 U21 apps for Serbia.

André-Pierre Gignac - Gignac probably will be the captain for the Foxes. He borned in France, and he is 29 years old. He is a very good player and he started his career at Lorient, he then moved to Toulouse, Marseille and he rejected a move to Tigrec in Mexico and joined for Las Vegas Strip Foxes for 2 years. He also have 19 caps for France.

Kevin Hoyos - Kevin borned in California and he is currently 22 years old. He is probably at the team because of the rules of the USA growned players. He is a backup striker and he will probably loaned out or be sold.

Transfer List

The Las Vegas Strip Foxes are willing to listen every offer for every player, but they prefer a swap deal, as they needed a right back.


There was a premiere at yesterday evening at the hall of Excalibur where the chairman, Patrik Pintér revealed the new kits for the 2015/16 season.

Anthony Martial

Jermaine Jones will be the club captain due to his knowledge and experience of American football. Angelo Ogbonna will be the leader at the back in what looks like being a 3 at the back formation for the Eagles. Jones will be joined in midfield by ex-PSG maestro Blaise Matuidi who is arguably the marquee player of the side. Antonio Valencia is capable of playing the wing back role or as a winger and with Anthony Martial and Giuseppe Rossi up front the Eagles shouldn't be short of goals.

Philadelphia Phillies announce squad

View attachment 246582
Philadelphia Freedom announce squad roster!
One of the newest franchises in the newly formed Dodge Premier League is the Pennsylvania-based Philadelphia Freedom. The franchise, owned by arch-American Uncle Sam has declared high ambitions for the coming season, hoping to compete for the title, already in it's first year.

To achieve those ambitions, owner Uncle Sam has gathered a strong first team squad that should be able to peform well in this first season:

Danijel Subasic and Alex Bono are the goalkeepers. Former AS Monaco keeper Subasic is an established Croatian international and will be first choice for the Freedom. Young goalie Alex Bono is a talented American who will provide cover for Subasic this season.

The Freedom have opted for a very young central defensive core. Argentinian talent Nehuen Paz and Dutch wonderkid Terrence Kongolo will be the starters, while young American talents Shane O'Neill and Kofi Opare will provide backup. Experienced American Bobby Boswell will also provide cover when needed.

Argentine Fabian Monzon will be a starter at left back, he has more offensive qualities than defensive, and should be entertaining to watch for the Phillies faithful. He will have backup from American Greg Cochrane. Italian Lorenzo De Silvestri is a quality first choice right back, and will get backup from young Americans Oscar Sorto and Andrew Farrell.

Freedom have got quality in abundance in the centre of the pitch. Italian veteran Angelo Palombo is the team captain, and has the quality to still dominate matches at the age of 32. Former Barcelona star Ivan Rakitic is perhaps the biggest star of the team. His technical ability can win the team points in even games. Experienced playmaker Fernando Gago adds to a very technically gifted midfield trio that should be able to pass any opponent off the pitch. Young Croatian talent Ante Coric should become a perfect understudy for countryman Rakitic, and can become a superstar in the future. Young American international Alfredo Morales adds to a very strong central midfield.

American superstar Clint Dempsey leads the line here, and will surely create excitement for the Philadelphia supporters. He is flanked by technically gifted Argentinian Diego Perotti, the exceptionally talented Spaniard Nahuel Leiva and lightning quick American Mac Kandji.

Up front, Nigerian Emmanuel Emenike leads the line. With his power and pace, he can frighten any defence. He'll be challenged by Argentinian talent Jonathan Calleri, who may well be just as big of a threat already as Emenike. American international Terrence Boyd will also want to steal a starting spot, and will have company from Andrew Stadler, who will likely struggle for playing time.

View attachment 246538Gustavo Poyet is informed that he will manage Philadelphia Freedoom

Philadelphia Freedom will be managed by Uruguayan Gustavo Poyet. The talented manager comes from his last spell at Sunderland, and will bring enthusiasm and a motivating attitude to the Phillies. His backroom staff will include three Canadians. Coach Marc Bircham, assistant manager Pat Ercoli and goalkeeping coach Pat Onstad

To better fit Gustavo Poyet's preferred formation, Philadelphia are on the search for naturalised right midfielders and possibly a left back, they have been rumoured to be willing to even trade some of their wonderkids or striker Emenike in order to get quality in.

SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO (July 7, 2015) – The commissioner of the newly founded American Soccer League announced today that San Juan has been awarded an expansion team that will begin play in 2015. The new team will be owned by Lucas Martinez, a German Puerto Rican businessman, and will play at the new world-class La Concha stadium in the heart of San Juan.

“We are very excited to bring a Bud Light Championship side to San Juan,” said Martinez. “We are going to build a first-class organization on and off the field that will be a source of pride for the entire community, and we believe our downtown stadium will become a destination for soccer fans throughout the island for many years to come.”

"We want to build a squad with ruthless german efficancy and latin flair," continued Martinez. "Our state of the art Youth Facilities will bring in technically gifted and tactically proficiant players to challenge for the first team. Competition breeds excellence."

To guide the Caribes in their inaugural season, Martinez has hired former Porto boss Julen Lopetegui as manager. The spaniard has had successful stints with several Spanish Youth sides, winning both the U-21 and U-19 european championships. His most recent turn as Porto manager has show promise aswell. While not winning the league, his impressive showing against german giant, Bayern, in the first leg of the Champions League shows the class and potential of San Juans new hire.

Joining Lopetegui as coaches will be Hanover 96 legend Steven Cherundolo aswell as former USMNT players Tony Meola and David Regis.

The roster of the inaugural Caribes side will include stars from around the world. Former Atletico star Arda Turan, Gladbach speedster Andre Hahn aswell as promising youngsters Kenedy, Jesus Vallejo and Marco Ascencio will surely have fans storming the gates throughout the season. For a full breakdown of the roster, see below.

“Puerto Rico is home to some of the most passionate sports fans in the country,” said Martinez. “And no sport has grown in popularity during the last two decades as much as soccer. I expect match days for our new team in San Juan to be colorful and festive events, as we will be striving for promotion in year one."

Today, approximetely 14.20, a new franchise was founded in New York. The franchise is taking part in the Dodge Premier League. The plans for the club were already ongoing during the MLS. But the dissolvement of Major League Soccer gave it another push and now here it is, a brand new club.

The franchise plays in the Sasquatch Stadium. It has a capacity of 30 000.

In it's very first season ever the club has made 18 000 season tickets available. One season ticket costs around 350 pounds. A ticket for a home game is 50 pounds. You can get these tickets cheaper or even free, but you must know someone at the club, like the owner Telstar.

There are also clubs kits on sale. You can find them everywhere in the city of New York.

El Paso Chihuahuas

Following the disbandment of the MLS and the call for new franchises in the newly founded Dodge Premier League, the city of El Paso, Texas, was able to find funding from former Mexican drug lord and ex leader of the Knights Templar cartel Servando Gomez to form their own franchise the El Paso Chihuahuas.
Although the Chihuahuas are situated in the state of Texas, its close proximity to Mexico and the heritage of the city mean there is a real Mexican/Spanish vibe around the club, this is further reinforced by the large number of Spanish and Mexican nationals within the playing squad.

Gomez or La Tuta as he is better known as will be in charge of the day to day running of the club.

First team management will be taken by ex Argentinian international Matias Almeyda
View attachment 246452

Almeyda will be backed up by Assistant Manager Alejandro Moreno an ex Venezuelan International and coaches Pat Jennings and Piotr Nowak who bring yet more international experience to the team.

The Chihuahuas first team squad will be announced soon.

Russian-american billionaire Cyril Severov has released a statement following the creation of the new Cascadian Wolves franchise of the Dodge Premier League based in the city of Seattle.

Severov's Statement:

"It is with great pleasure that I announce the creation of what will soon be the greatest soccer club in American history. A team whose spirit lies with the extraordinary people of the Pacific Northwest. The Wolves stand for its history, its traditions and its culture. Its a club made by soccen for soccer fans.

Its sucess and glory lies within the passion we aim to inspire from its supporters. Our claim is clear, we want to be the most passionate and devoted team in the history of sports. With that in mind we have considered the Northwest as the perfect region because of its ideals and long history of counterculture.

The Wolves aim not to be some cold corporate symbol. But a living thing composed of each and every supporter. Being a wolf is not a hobby but a way of life, an inebriating experience that spreads to all around you. Ultras will be encouraged and actively supported by the administration so long as they fight against violence. I've worked with european and especially german football before and that is the sort of passion we want, But this time with american and of course cascadian flavor.

The state of Washington and Oregon can now unite their love of soccer and show the world how far we can go."

Larry Ellison's plans to reinvent FOOTBALL in the US have been revealed.

Following on from Mr Ellison's dramatic overhaul of tennis in the US, he has turned to football and is entering a team in the new Dodge Premier League.
Introducing: California Cougars!
View attachment 246259
The Cougars are soon to be the new dominant force in American football (or soccer as they used to say). With the world's fifth richest man backing them (he's worth more than all these oil oligarchs) they are surely destined for great things.

The first thing at Mr Ellison's press conference was the squad introduction:

View attachment 246253
Ralf Fahrmann - 25, Schalke 04 (First choice)
Cody Cropper - 21, Southampton (Backup/Future Prospect)

Full backs:
Atsuto Uchida - 26, Schalke 04 (First choice RB)
Chris Duvall - 22, NY Red Bulls (Expendable but backup RB)
Aly Cissokho - 26, Aston Villa (First choice (Only) LB :/ )

Centre Backs:
View attachment 902984
Samuel Umtiti - 20, Lyon (First choice CB, can get much better)
Nicolas Isimat-Mirin - 22, PSV (Second first choice CB - once he returns from loan)
Carlos Bocanegra - 35, Chivas USA
Aurelien Collin - 28, Sporting Kansas City
^Both backup

Centre Mids:
View attachment 246251View attachment 246250
Axel Witsel - 25, Zenit (first choice CM with Gundogan)
Ilkay Gundogan - 23, Dortmund (first choice CM with Witsel)
Josuha Guilavogui - 23,Wolfsburg (first choice CDM)
Daniel Williams - 25, Reading (Rotational Midfielder)
Fernando Arce Jr. - 17, Xolos Tijuana (Who?) (Backup, hot prospect)

Joshua Gatt - 22, Molde (Out for 15 months...)
Lamar Neagle - 27, Seattle Sounders (As **** as Gatt, just not injured)
Danny - 30, Zenit (First choice LW, just)
Josh Murphy - 19, Norwich (Rotational LW with Danny, huge potential)

Anthony Knockaert - 22, Leicester (First choice if we play a CAM, if not then rotational RW)
Inri Manzo (For sale)
Diego Fagundez - 19, New England Revolution (HG, good potential)

View attachment 246252
Anthony Modeste - 26, Hoffenheim (First choice)
Donis Avdijaj - 17, Schalke 04 (Third signing from the Germans, hot prospect)
Caio - 23, Internacional (Backup, hot prospect as well)
Mike Magee - 29, Chiacgo Fire (HG, shouldn't be used)

Manager: Stefano Pioli - The ex-Lazio manager has a vast amount experience despite his age (48) and is looking to play in Mr Ellison's preferred 4-1-2-3 DM wide formation.

Assistant Manager: Dante Washington - part of Mr Ellison's plans are to increase the level of coaching in the US, so he has bought in an ex American player who has a fair bit of experience from the MLS disaster.

HOY: Brian Maisonneuve - Also American, played with Washington and is currently a Coach for the US national team

Coach: Tim Martin - made as many appearances as the other two over his career but only had one season in the MLS - that was enough to make him retire, given his first chance at coaching by the Cougars

View attachment 902978hView attachment 902975a
Mr Ellison has used his contacts to ensure that the shirts are made by high-quality manufacturers - Puma. He has also agreed to let his own company become the shirt sponsors.

Transfer Plans:
A new Left back and Right mid are needed - otherwise Mr Ellison is satisfied with his squad.
