Hey guys and welcome to our FM 2016 regen dates guide(we also wrote the FM 2018 regen dates guide too). This post explains what regens are, when new youth is generated in FM 2016, how to find the best FM16 wonderkids and which clubs generate the best youth prospects.

What are FM 2016 regens

No professional can play forever, not even Giggs, Buffon or Maldini. Therefore, FM 2016 generates regens to keep the game fresh and make for endless enjoyment. Regens are simply a new player generated by the game, players that can not be found in real life, they have rather funny faces and offer great hope in that we never truly know where the next Messi or Heskey will come from on a save by game save basis.

These FM 2016 regens enter clubs on what we call ‘youth intake day’, which for most clubs happens around the same time every year. However, since FM14 Sports Interactive wanted more realism and therefore made most of the regen dates, or youth intake dates as its better known change year by year for each country. Each club within a country shares the same intake date.

But do not fear, FMS are here. We have researched all the FM 2016 regen dates and comprised them into a handy list below. We have only included countries we feel are worth searching for regens.

Where Israel?


As written in the post we have not included every country as some seem a waste of time looking through in a standard save. We have trimmed the list down to the best nations we check for regens.

The sorting doesn’t work very well, it sorts by day not month


Sorry you cannot sort this list.


Italy regen-ed on 5 March 2016 rather than 7 March 2016 for me.


Not the case in any of my saves, are you certain it is in yours? Where are you finding the information?


Sorry, my bad!. Played Parma in Serie C (holidayed a year til they got promoted), then had March 7 circled on my calendar, based on this page, but forgot to take into consideration the fact that I had holidayed a year, so I was surprised when the regens popped up on the 5th of march.


Olyimpique Lyonnais is a beast for regens, past 3 FMs I have got a World Class striker from them
