These are megapacks with backgrounds to use in Football Manager 2022. The packs have been created by stevemc.

As per the last 3/4 years, I work on background projects, this one is adding pictures to the backgrounds throughout the game from all over the world, I’ve been doing this for my own personal use, but decided to share with the community, something I've built up over 3-4 years now and continue to improve.


All pictures in this pack are at 2560x1600, which is basically MacBook Pro Retina size. The images have been compressed to the smallest possible size without the loss of quality.

Available packs

  • Stadiums (covers 223 countries)
  • Competitions (515 images)
  • Nations (All)
  • Continents (All)
  • Media Sources (118 different media)
  • Referees (363 different referees)
  • Manager/Staff Pack (4665 backgrounds)


Several screenshots from the diferent packs in this awesome download.
