FMI Real Competition Names

If you opt to directly download the FMI Update you will also receive our very own FMI Real Name Fix included in the update. This will add real competition names to ALL playable leagues in Football Manager 2022. Install instructions are included in the update or you can check the download page of the FMI Real Name Fix.

FMI Media Pack

We also have a Media Pack which will add around 400 Media pundits to Football Manager 2022. If you opt to directly download the update the Media Pack will be added to the download. It is also available on Steam but in a seperate file. Install instructions and more info can be found on the download page of the FMI Media Pack

Japan Database

Due to licensing issues Football Manager never has a full database of players and staff from the Japanese leagues. Luckily Robbles Quin has created the best and most accurate database for Football Manager 2022! We are very lucky that Robbles has allowed us to use his database in our own FMI Update to give you the most accurate database ever! All credits go to him and his team and we would like to take time to thank him for his work and the fact he has allowed us to use his data in our update!

*Important: the FMI Update will only add players and staff and will not make the Japanese ladder playable in FM22. If you want to play in Japan you can download the full pyramid created by Robbles Quin here.

Future add-ons

In addition to our transfer update we will be releasing some additional files this year. Most of these will be added in our update. But some of these will not be added into our update but will be released in seperate files. This makes it easier for you to decide which files you want to use. For us it makes updating a lot more efficient!

  • Real competition colours
  • Real Award & trophy names
  • Real life agents

All these add-ons will be available in seperate files, making it possible for you to choose the files you want to use in your saves.
