What is a Youth Intake?

Youth intake day signals the arrival of 'newgens' - players that were not previously in the game but have been generated and enrolled by SI.

On the day of the youth intake, your newgens could be between the ages of 14 and 16, with varying levels of current ability and potential ability.

After a short trial period, you will get to decide which newgens will join your academy, and which will have to look for a new club.
