Elected coach.jpg

A national coach (or simply NT coach) is a user elected for a mandate in national team. This manager stays in function for two seasons, under normal circumstances, after which new elections are held.

A national coach chooses a national trainer, decides which players are on the squad and makes line-ups for the qualification or World Cup matches. Furthermore this person is also responsible for arranging friendlies for their national team.

The NT coach, as the elected manager of a national team, stays in function for two seasons. He/She has to picks up to 26 players (from teams with real owners) freely from those players with the same nationality as the team he is representing. National coaches can't select players from bot teams (in early times they could but this has been changed when some team, particularly farm teams, started to exploid this).

Once picked, the NT coach can see the same data for the national team players as you do for your own team.

The national coach is also responsible for selecting a national team kit and the reserve kit that, as much as possible, adheres to the official colours of the country's national team.

Communication with the community is considered by many as another important task of the national coach. For the duration of his office, the current national coach has also access to the national coaches' conference.


Every national team has one assistant slot coach and four NT scouts slots

The national coach can eventually selects a staff of 5 users that can help him:

  • 1 Assistant coach
  • 4 NT scouts.

They are appointed by the NT coaches and get some limited tools that help them with their tasks.

The NT scout was created formally on season 73 and, but the new role only made official something that has always existed: users that are devoted to their national teams and help the coaches find, and follow, promising players.
