The Glory Hunter is a Football Manager challenge popularised by DoctorBenjy and has been attempted by many since it's creation. In this article, we'll be showing you how we're attempting the challenge and the rules.

The Rules

You have 20 years to win the following:

Premier League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup
La Liga and Copa Del Rey
Serie A and Coppa Italia
Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal
Ligue Un and Coupe De France
Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League.
World Cup and European Championship

A minimum of 16 trophies to win across 20 years will be a challenge but the difficulty level will vary on how you opt to complete it...

How To Do It

You can guarantee success and start with one of the big boys - PSG and Bayern Munich the main culprits - or you could look to build a side and perhaps go for a team starting in the Conference League, or lower.

It's worth remembering that there is a time limit though, so don't make things too challenging, to the point of no recovery. Here are our picks for teams to manage in each of the countries:

Start With a Country?

During the save you have to win the European Championships and World Cup additionally - both of which occur once every 4 years. To get it out of the way early on, you could start by managing a nation. Here are our picks for if that's the route you want to go down.
