Welcome to our guide about Football Manager 2017 Work Permits! We’ll explain which players can get a work permit and we will reveal what are the best affiliated clubs and countries for work permits.
This is one of the problems when you take charge of an English club and try to hire players who do not belong to the EU (European Union).
All these players who come from other continents to play in United Kingdom need to pass the rule of work permit so that they can play in the Premier League.
However, world class players have access to this work permit quite easily, as they are a certain add to the quality of football in England.
What kind of players are these?
1. Players who already have proven their quality and are constantly called to his national team (main squad) in the last two years and play in almost every game.
2. That country should be in high positions in the official table of FIFA World Rankings.
These are the requirements for a foreigner to obtain a FM17 Work Permit.
All other players who can not get a work permit, need to work around this obstacle through obtaining a second nationality (in a European country). That’s the solution for your rejected work permits.
How to do this? Simple, you should get an affiliate club in a country that is easy (less days to gain nationality) to obtain a second nationality, and after that you must send these players through loan to the affiliated clubs.
Best FM 2017 work permits countries
There are some countries in Europe where it is possible to obtain a second citizenship in a few years. They are:
3º Serbia – If you’re thinking about making a career beyond the year 2022, you should point this country in your list of best FM 2017 countries to loan players to get the work permit. From the day of July 1, 2022 is possible to obtain a second citizenship in just three years for any player from any country.
2º Belarus – It is undoubtedly a country where you should look for FM 2017 feeder clubs. In just three years any player from any country can get the Belarusian nationality.
1º Spain – This is without doubt in the first place on our list. Any player who comes from the South American continent (and also from Philippines and Equatorial Guinea) can get a second citizenship in just two years! For all other countries (in Africa, Asia etc…) it takes ten years to obtain the Spanish nationality.
Best FM 2017 Feeder clubs for work permits
When choosing a feeder club to get the work permit, you should focus on some points. Main point is the level of the training facilities and youth facilities. Second point is to make sure you choose a good club so that your player can be a consistent choice in the first team. Obviously we would not include clubs such as Barcelona or Real Madrid since it would be impossible for any player to have a place in the first team. Due to this, these aspects were taken into account during the realization of this list.
All clubs on this list belong to the countries of the previous list.
4º Dinamo Minsk and BATE– Both Belarusian clubs with impressive training facilities and great youth facilities. Maybe the best options if you’re looking for clubs with players below average where your foreign players can have many minutes in every match to be able to develop their attributes.
3º Partizan – Best club in Serbia when we talk about training & youth facilities. They are slightly above the level of the two Bulgarian clubs mentioned above. They are also a stronger and more competitive club, so we decided to place them in the third position of our list.
2º Sevilla – Almost as good as the partizan in terms of facilities, however Sevilla has a more competitive squad and it is playing in one of the best leagues in the world, so we thought that second place would be a fair rating for them.
1º Real Sociedad – Without doubt the best club to loan players in Football Manager 2017! They have the best training and youth facilities in spain, just behind Real Madrid and Barcelona. About their squad is far less competitive than Sevilla’s squad.
