What is the Pentagon Challenge?
The Pentagon Challenge is considered by many to be one of the hardest challenges to undertake in the game. The main aim of the challenge is to win the Champions League or equivalent on each continent. The challenge is made more difficult by the fact that you must start unemployed with Sunday league reputation
To start I loaded South Africa, South Korea, China and Brazil as the only playable nations and put most other major nations as view only .
Out of all the jobs available 3 caught my eye:
Jomo Cosmos- They were relegated to the second tier of South African Football in the previous season so had a reasonable amount of money and were predicted to finish in first place which is always nice
Black Leopards- They are in the South African premiership which could take a year or two out my challenge
Gangneung City- At the start of the save (June 2012) they sit 3rd in the N-League (second division) in South Korea because of their season starting in January
So I applied for all 3...
and got the job at Gangneung
My third choice but hey, third in the league but I looked the Korean system and there are playoffs between the top six teams in the league at the end of the season to see who goes up, So league position doesn't matter as much as I had thought when I took the job
They were formed in 1999
They have very little history with there only success being the N-league title in 2009
The Club itself has very poor facilities with fairly basic training facilities, no junior coaching and no youth facilities
The club rent a 33000 all seater stadium but with only 459 season ticket holders we rarely get attendances above 1000 people but on the plus side the average ticket costs only £2 and a season ticket costs £30.
The next update will include transfers and results from the month of June
