How to add Logos, Faces and Kits




Tired of having unlicensed kits, logos or not having any player faces in the game? In this short guide we will explain how to add custom graphics to Football Manager. If you follow these basic steps, you won’t have any problems adding faces, kits, logos or any other custom graphics.

The steps in this guide will work on all versions of Football Manager.

Easiest way:

If you already used custom graphics with an older version of Football Manager, you could just simply copy > paste your Graphics folder to the FM folder of the new version! It’s that easy!

But if you are new to the game and don’t have any graphics yet, follow these steps:

Step 1: Download the graphics you want

There are many graphics to be downloaded for Football Manager. We have some of the best downloads available and you will find them all in our Download Area.


Step 2: Unpack graphics

Most of the graphical packs you will download are too big to directly download from a folder. To keep the downloads a bit smaller in size, uploaders usually ‘pack’ the downloads with software like WinRar (free to download).

Once you have downloaded a graphical pack, you will be able to unpack it and place it in the correct folders.

Step 3: Put graphics in right folders

Once you have downloaded the graphics you like, you will need to extract the content into the following folder(s):


\Users\<your username>\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager XXXX\graphics\

Mac OS:

/Users/<username>/Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager XXXX/graphics/

*Note XXXX is your FM version

TIP: To minimize clutter and keep a clean look in your folders we recommend that you create different folders for the different types directly under the graphics folder. This way it will be easier to keep track of the various packs you have and it will be easier to install updates if they become available (most of the graphics get regular updates).

NOTE: If the Graphics folder doesn’t exist yet, simply create it by adding a new folder and naming it graphics. Football Manager will automatically recognise the folder.


Step 4: Making it work in Football Manager

Load up your version of Football Manager and look for ‘Preferences‘. In the start screen it is somewhere at the right side of the screen. If you have already loaded your save game, use the drop down menu in the top right to find the Preferences.

After the preferences screen is loaded go to ‘Interface‘.

Then you will see the ‘Appearance‘ section and you will have to change:

  • Untick: ‘Use caching to decrease page loading times‘.
  • Make sure ‘Reload skin when confirming changes in Preferences‘ is ticked.
  • After making these changes you can click ‘Confirm‘.

After you hit confirm the game will show a message that the skin is being reloaded. That usually takes ten seconds or something. Once that is done, check out the graphics that you have added. If you have followed our steps correctly, you will be able to see something like this:

  1. i had the same problem eventually found a graphics fmf file in the database folder deleted that and put the logo pack i had downloaded there and it worked be warned tho the custom logo pack does cause my game to crash if i try to view a staff profile and some other pages, deffo the logo pack as when i reset to standard crash goes away, workable you just need to discover which scrrens to avoid by trial and error the game play feel with the proper logos far outweighs the odd crash!!

  2. need someones help i’m going crazy. Been playing FM for years and never had any problems with the game when it came to adding facepacks yet this one seems impossible.

    I have pasted them in the graphics folder, then I pasted them in a faces folder within the graphics folder. I’ve reset the skins and ticked and unticked the relevant boxes. i’ve even tried a different facepack with no luck.

    can anyone help me. i’m to picky to play without faces

  3. Hello,
    i am so sad, because uploader just skip whole Czech republic. Someone put only logo of that competition. But i check another countries and is almost same. Cheers from Czech! 🙂

  4. I removed the pack from my graphics folder and retested and no crash. With the facepack, a crash 100% of the time when going into the Team Report>Team Depth Chart screen. Anyone else seen that?

  5. How the heck can i download this with so much random advertising and separate buttons asking me to download stuff? Which button do I press to download?

Latest players

Lewis Cook

Lewis Cook is one of the ideal Brexit players to keep watching. He plays for Bournemouth, but is keen on moving to one of the club inside the top 6. He will cost you roughly around 45 to 50 million and that is considered a steal for this type of player in the Premier League. He is a very good playmaker and could easily play for one of the big teams in the Premier League.

Lisandro Martinez

Lisandro Martinez is a real catch in Football Manager 2019. The young Argentinian is a talented centre-back and is available for an expected 7M transfer fee. Ideal player to have if you like longer saves and need a good ball playing defender who is able to develop a lot.

Julian Brandt

Julian Brandt has the potential to become one of the elite players in Football Manager 2019. The German winger shows some lethal skills and will have no trouble with playing for the biggest clubs in the world. He has a 70m price tag, which seems a fair price in modern football.

Franck Kessie

If you are looking for a tireless midfielder Franck Kessie could be the ideal player for you. The Ivorian international has all the attributes for a very good ball-winning midfielder. However, it is not possible to sign Kessie in the first two seasons as he is on a loan from Atalanta and will sign on a permanent deal for Milan in the summer of 2019.

Javairo Dilrosun

Former Manchester City left winger Javairo Dilrosun is considered as one of the bigger talents from Holland. He has the potential to become a regular international and is a very handy player if you love a left-footed left winger that will cross in the ball onto your striker. For 22.5 he could be yours, so keep an eye out for him!

Josip Brekalo

Josip Brekalo is a talented player who could develop into an awesome inside forward. The Croatian international is already a first team regular at Wolfsburg and it is expected that he will leave the club on a short term. Keep him on your shortlist as the expected 60m fee could drop after a couple of seasons.
