Home Football Manager 2017 Top 70 Brexit proof players

Top 70 Brexit proof players

The United Kingdom will be leaving the European Union in the future and that could have effect on Football Manager. While the implications of ‘Brexit’ remain unclear, Sports Interactive has jumped in, creating multiple possible scenarios in Football Manager 2017.

According to Miles Jacobson (director at SI Games and one of the founding fathers of Football Manager) there are three main scenarios for Brexit in your game. But, the details within these three main choices can vary as well. In some saves Scotland will leave the UK, in others multiple countries may decide to leave.

The type of Brexit you will get will be different in every save you play, but here are the three main scenarios.


If you are lucky enough, the United Kingdom will leave the EU without any changes to the Work Permit system. EU-players can be signed without a Work Permit, players from outside the EU need to apply for a WP.


Footballers are granted the same special exemptions that are currently given to ‘entertainers’. This means it’s easier for them to obtain work permits than others. This will not have a huge impact on player movement in the European Union.


Hardest possible Brexit is where all players need to apply for a Work Permit. This means that a German, French or Spanish player will have to apply for a work permit. They will need to meet the same requirements as a player from Brazil or Argentina to sign for a British club.


Lucky for you, FMInside.net has been searching the database of Football Manager 2017. And we have created a list full of ‘Brexit-proof players’. So, if you’re getting anxious about Brexit, you could lower the risk by signing some of the players on this list.

For the list we have selected the best available players under the age of 23. These players all have a Potential Ability of at least 150 or -8 and higher. The players on this list all have the potential to become World Class and some of them already are World Class. So, if you want to create an unbeatable team full of British players, this is the list to use!
