The Champions League Skin is back for Football Manager 2018! This is the 1.1 version for the Champions League 2018 skin. If you have version 1.0 installed, please completely delete this version prior to unpacking this updated version.

(If you unpack this version on top of the earlier version left over files from version 1.0 can interfere with the new skin)



– tilebar/header with “fm”/”calendar”/continue” buttons similar as in the Champions League 2016 skin (OPZ created this for the OPZ 2016/2017 skins)
– graphic enhancements (customized panels added, bigger player faces/logo’s in inbox messages).
– bigger pitch on tactics overview screen during match.

– instant result button
– many other additional graphical updates to enhance the FM experience

This skin wouldn’t have been possible without the work of:

El Comandante Qwas (Nocturno skin)
Pikawa (CFM Skin)
FLUT skin makers (great inbox panels!)
Emil Debski (Vitrex skin (2016/2017 version), sidebar icons and minor graphic enhancements)
