What will be added in the future?

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 names & colours
  • Real Award & trophy names
  • New wonderkids to discover
  • Real life Media pundits
  • Real life agents
