2nd accounts - a reminder
We have had a number instances lately of second account holders applying for clubs on the manager vacancies list when they should not have done so.
Some of these applications have been spotted and the relevant manager has been asked to withdraw their applications.
Others, unfortunately, have slipped through the net meaning we have asked the manager to resign from their new club. More importantly, they have sometimes deprived legitimate applicants from being appointed because of their superior manager rating.
The Admin team will continue to monitor vacancy applications whenever they can but the ultimate responsibility for abiding by the rules rests with the applying manager. All second account holders agreed to these rules when applying for a second account.
Can we urge all second account holders to again read and familiarise yourselves with the rules so that these breaches do not happen again.
In summary, for second account holders wishing to move clubs:
1. They can do so between the days of 53 to 56 and 1 to 3 plus during a window between days 26 to 30.
2. Subscribed second accounts can apply for a club at any time during the season.
3. No second account (whether subscribed or not) can apply for a club ranked in the top 250 (as shown on the vacancies list) or if their stadium capacity is larger than 10,000.
4. If you have previously managed a team on the vacancies list (either with your main account or with your second account) you are not allowed to apply for that club.
