Football Manager 2012 Regen Dates

Every year I post up the regen dates in Football Manager and this year is the same! This is something I have found interesting every year as it allows me to know exactly when the regens will appear and allow be to pick up the next Lionel Messi before another club snatches him up.

What are Regens?

Regens or regenerated players are randomly created players in Football Manager that will start to appear in your save as you play. Regens are created to make sure there is no shortage of players when the real players retire throughout the years. Just like there are some world class real players (Messi, Ronaldo etc), regens are no different and there will be a lot of regens who will become superstars.

    Helped a lot for me, thank you!

  • Leebo

    Am I be nieve here. How is the best way to make the most of this info.
    I have been going to the national teams U21’s / U19’s when these dates hit.
    Got a few good players, but is there any other way of finding them?

    • Jack

      FM Genie Scout is the best way

  • Jules

    Just buy some good scouts and send them to different continents (the best regens appear in Brazil and Argentina, so you should send your best scout there). That’s the way I got a few really good regens with my Dutch club sc Heerenveen.

  • Damien

    @Leebo Or you can manually browse through U-17/U-18 ranks of clubs with good youth development for some kids with nice stats and offer them contract right away.

  • Jules

    Just downloaded the Genie Scout, best tool for FM ever!

  • brazilian regen players created at 20.09 on my second season but my third season regen players didn’t created at 20.09… And i’m on 08.01 and i still waiting for new brazilian regen players….. I don’t understand why happening this.

    • Luke

      This has happened to me loads of times… I’m in 2018, it looks like the regens don’t appear every single season…. I’ve no idea why not?

      have you worked out why?

  • Ollie

    I don’t quite understand how this works, are these dates the same for every year in fm, or are they only for a certain year? I’m comfused..because surely regen’s aren’t released in the first season of fm? I always believed they came a little later in the game 2016 etc..please help!:)

    • Jules

      The regens appear from 2012 (the first half of the 1st season) and the dates will be the same every year. I hope I answered your questions right.

  • Kristian

    Nigeria has often given me brilliant results as well.. Oh.. And the Ivory Coast…

    What I do, is I hire scouts with 100% knowledge of major countries, like Brazil, England, Argentina, Italy, Spain, Germany, etc, and on the regen day for a specific country, I send my scout to that country, with filters on for max age 16, and then the list of the new regens come up later in the day, or the following day at the latest.

    So, if I wanted to get the English regens, on the 13th of March, every year I send Steve Rowley to scout England (may age 16). On the 14th March, I get a list of the better regens of that year, then I try to sign them up.

    • Jules

      Max age 16? Mostly I get regens that are like 18, 19 years old.

      • Chodey

        That’s not really helping your youth system though, I think with Max Age 16 you’re looking at your academy, but at 19 they could on ly go in the reserves and be part of a short term plan for the team.
