The FM21 Adboard Patch


The Football Manager Adboard Patch contains thousands of static and video adboard’s to bring the 3D match engine to life. The patch contains video adboard’s for the most popular European leagues and its continental competitions. In addition, some clubs have fan banners as close to their real-life locations as possible adding some character and realism to the match engine, some examples are below.

Installation Instructions

1.Extract the folders to your desktop
2.Place the graphics folder into the following directory;

https://i.postimg.cc/TwDMqGGN/graphics.png
PC: My documents/sports interactive/football manager 2021

MAC: Macintosh HD/Users/YOUR Mac USERNAME/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/football manager 2021

You may be asked if you want to replace existing files and folders, agreeing to this will just update previous adboards and will not result in the loss of any previous graphics.

3. Open up the xml folder on your desktop and copy the ‘ads’ folder into this directory:

PC: My documents/sports interactive/football manager 2021

MAC: Macintosh HD/Users/YOUR Mac USERNAME/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/football manager 2021

4. Now open the ‘ads’ folder, you will notice two folders one called ‘Club Adboards’ and one called ‘Non Club Adboards’.

Choose your preferred fm.xml file from either folder and copy and paste the file into the ads folder,

5. Place the steam folder into the following directory;

PC: C:\Program Files (x86)
https://i.postimg.cc/zvYmxMGz/steam.png

MAC: Macintosh HD/Users/myusername/Library/Application Support

If playing Football Manager via ‘Epic Games’ open the folders within the ‘Steam’ folder until you reach the Football Manager 2021’ folder and place this folder in the following directory: PC: C:\Program Files (x86)/epic games

6. Open the ‘How to stop Bidstack Ads’ folder and copy the ‘bidstack_enabled.xml’ file to this directory

PC: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\Preferences\version 4
https://i.postimg.cc/ry52D8fK/bidstack.png

MAC: Macintosh HD/Users/myusername/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2021/Preferences/version 4

7. Load up FM21 and in the preferences menu open up the match tab and ensure that the match graphics quality is set to at least medium, but high or very high is best.

I have dedicated 1000's of hours, making and coding adboard’s for Football Manager since 2008. These adboard patches have attracted over 100,000 downloads and remain the only real way to inject some personality into the Football Manager match engine. While this is a free patch if you wish to donate as way of thanking me for my time you can do so by the link below

It is a data file which changes the appearance of stadiums in any new save.

It’s optional, if you want to install place the editor data folder into the my documents/sports interactive/football manager 2021 folder

so, your Folder “editor data”

= Stadium Edits.fmf

is the newest Version of that Stadium Edits?

so we did not download on your linked thread - just include your file in editor data?

it would be fine, if more stadiums have more their real Building

Hi @rabcp, thanks to your brilliant work, I've been inspired to do some adboards for Stade Rennais by following your helpful tutorials. I would be pleased for them to be included in your next update to share it with the community.

I love the pack. My absolute favourite immersion wise. But could you make and option for neutral international competition boards without the years and places? I am in 2026 WC and I cannot stand the Qatar 2022 boards, a place where it should not have been in the first place. A neutral setup for those would be great.

Hey Rab, i finally made it to EFL league 2 with my winsford FC team, is there a generic video adboard for the league alone or are video adboards specific to teams only, what i mean by that is i've been playing against teams that have video adboards but they have the generic FM21 ads is it possible at all to replace those generic ones with just sponsors from EFL League 2

 

Thanks

Congratulations on your promotion. Presently no video ads are coded to League 2, I’ll fix this with the next update, though only the bigger clubs will use them
