K League Football Manager 2018: Ten Challenges for You to Try

The K League United Football Manager 2018 Challenges: 10 FM18 Challenges for you to try!
As the 2017 campaign draws to a close, K League fans across the country will be taking stock of their team's efforts, looking back at key moments and wondering if they could have handled it any better themselves. With this year's release of Football Manager 2018, you can now relive your side's season and make the decisions that you feel your club could not. You can bring 'Tiki-Taka' to Tancheon, 'Gegenpressing' to Gwangju or just simply sign a second striker to a side who would have fared better with back up options.

Like last year, we at K League United are encouraging you to do so! We are once again suggesting some K League based challenges for you to attempt in your spare time, and would like to feature your efforts!

This can be done in a number of ways, ranging from tagged screenshots on social media to links to your own personal blog posts documenting your escapades in finer detail. We are happy to share them all! Here’s how to get involved:

1. Pick a Challenge from our list below!

There are ten exciting K-League based challenges to choose from, ranging both in time and difficulty. Take a look through them and see what you think you can do.

2. Complete the Form

Enter your details in the form below so we can be aware of your efforts. You will be required to include your name, what method you will use to showcase your progress (e.g. Twitter or Instagram handles, or your own personal blog) which we can link to, and the challenge you wish to take on. Also make sure to include whether you will be partaking in the challenge using the full version of Football Manager 2018, the Touch edition on tablets and smart phones or the mobile edition. All are accepted, but make sure to let us know before you start.

3. Get playing!

Start the challenge as soon as you are ready! Make sure to take screenshots of key events, monthly board reviews/league tables and your tactics if necessary. If you are using social media to showcase your results, then make sure to tag your details using the hashtag #KLeagueFM18. If you are running this challenge on your own blog, then make sure to notify us of the link to each updated post either by our Twitter, Facebook or our email. We will also be scouring the submitted blogs and hashtags weekly to share and feature the best across our social feeds and #KLeagueFM18 Challenges.

4. Keep an eye on the site!

Having told you what they think is wrong with your team all year, we’re offering you the opportunity to make a fool of our writers! Like last year, a number of our columnists will also be regularly featuring their efforts both on the site and via social media so make sure to watch out for their progress and offer them your best “backseat manager” advice/criticisms.


We will only be basing these challenges on the official launch edition of Football Manager 2018 game and database, although, as mentioned, we will allow for the full version, Touch and mobile editions to be used, as long as they are specified beforehand. We’d also like no changes made to the in-game editor to ensure all challengers are on a level playing field. We will also be running large databases for both the K-League Classic and Challenges leagues starting from Jan 2017 (the default setting). However, please also make sure to specify early on any additional leagues you may choose to run in addition to these two.

Finally, if you take one of our challenges, please try your best to complete it without restarting. The joy of Football Manager is quite often the journey and, while it may detract from achieving your objective, it allows for others to learn from your experience. This game is brand new for everyone, so partaking in communal challenges such as this will assist everyone in seeking out new players, tactics and features. Your mistake could help save someone else.

This is aimed to be a fun and exciting challenge that will take place over the winter until the 2018 season commences in March, so please enjoy it and partake in a positive manner.

We really look forward to seeing your best attempts, undiscovered wonder kids and risqué tactics.


Please take a look at our challenges below and read the details carefully before selecting one!
  1. Match The Stadium: Many K-League teams play in glorious stadiums built for the 2002 World Cup. These 55,000+ capacity behemoths are a sight to behold, but the teams rarely match this with fans. Take one of the World Cup stadium teams and make them a powerhouse of Asian football. 
  2. The Treble: Win the FA Cup, K League, and AFC Champions League in a single season.
  3. Challenge Champs: Have a stab at what site columnist Stephen Waddell attempted last season and win AFC Champions League with a team currently in K-League Challenge
  4. Time Traveler: Take a team relegated from the classic this year and turn back the clock to turn their fortunes around. Have them qualify for the Champions League within three seasons.
  5. The Invincibles: Do what Jeonbuk couldn't quite pull off last year: go undefeated on your way to the league title and win at least one more trophy just for good measure.
  6. Citizens Unite!: Do what our columnist Matthew Binns couldn't do and stand up to the Korean Chaebols by leading a citizen club to title glory. 
    1. K-League Classic citizen clubs: Daegu FC, Gangwon FC, Gwangju FC, Incheon United, 
    2. K-League Challenge citizen clubs: FC Anyang, Bucheon 1995, Daegu FC, Daejeon Citizen, Gyeongnam FC, Seongnam FC, Suwon FC
  7. Put the K in K-League: Win the K League Classic with an all Korean squad.
  8. Director Of Football: Win the title while allowing the Director of Football to make all of the decisions.You're responsible only for running team training and tactics. The Director of Football handles scouting, contracts and transfers, and you must accept every decision they make.
  9. Academics: Start with any team (Classic or Challenge) and win the title while fielding only homegrown players that have come through the academy. Foreign players trained at the club are allowed, but the 3+1 roster rules will still be in effect.
  10. The Road to Russia: With the World Cup on the horizon, take over as the Korean National Team manager and only select players from clubs in the K-League. Then, qualify for Russia and see how far into the tournament you can go! (This will be our featured challenge on this site this year, but feel free to give it a try if you think you can do it better!)
