Hmm... I wonder if one could replace the BIDSTACK_CHANNEL.xml with an empty file with the same exact name and then set the file as "read only" (which means it cannot be deleted or overwritten without the consent of the System Administrator)?
Tried that: no impact. Maybe it is a different file after all.

I've also raised this as a bug on the SI forum, because if you turn off "Targeted Advertising" in the preferences then none of these should show in game really.
Removing bidstack ads please use my download link and follow instructions since me and my brother done this we have not seen any bidstack ads I'm not saying it will work for everyone but so far so good
go to my Documents /AppData folder/Local/Sports Interactive/ Football Manager 2019/ Remove Logs folder and replace it with this one
please note if there is no AppData folder in my documents click on window key click on run and type it in it will then show up remember once game is loaded clear cache and reload skin i have explained everything in this message what to do so please do not be asking stupid questions as i wont answer thank you and happy FM
Still get Bidstack ads.
Try using this adboards pack This is the pack me and Arthur72 use and do as he say's in his post
Blocking FM19.exe in the firewall solved my problem but after that in the game first videoadboard rolling 3-5 times so I have a solution for it with adding one black frame video for all first videoadboards.
1-) Copy BIDSTACK_CHANNEL.xml into C:\Users\(USERNAME)\AppData\Local\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2019\Preferences\version 3\channels
2-) Block FM19.exe in Windows Firewall Here is a video how can you do it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KpZPKtFFS0Y
3-) Copy XML file which one you wanna use (Club or NoClub ) to C:\Users\(USERNAME)\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2019\ads
4-) Copy data folder to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2019
I've tried to replicate this on a Mac, but I can't get it to work.
I didn't want to turn off my internet connection or set Steam to offline mode, as suggested in posts above, so I made a new rule for FM 19 in my Firewall, that disallows any inbound connections made to fm.exe. The rule can be easily switched to "enabled" or "disabled" depending on whether you want to keep blocking traffic to FM 19 or not.
Haven't tested it yet, but it should prevent any nonsense from Bidstack marketing department from reaching the game... I hope.
Sorry never use mac. So no idea about that. I hope you can find a solution for mac.
Hi Tommy, did this work for you?
Yes, I believe the combination of my firewall solution and the blank adboard code solution provided by aragornx made it work for me again, though I've since only played pre-season games on small stadiums without video ads. But at least the static adboards have been working just like they should. No sight of Bidstack here.
This the reply back from sports interactive when I reported it as a big
Jack is taking some well earned holiday, so apologies that he hasn't responded to your message. In regards to your issue, you should have the option in the preferences screen to click yes or no for "Targeted advertising".
My reply back was I have done that and still they come through I've had no reply back again
I also had a reply to this too:
