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.

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,

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

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

I like to make my own static adboards from time to time, so if you play in the English Championship, League One or League Two, you might find this one useful. Either add it to your team or all teams in your league.

Fantastic add on, I thought this wasn't working for a long time but this is because I was watching highlights of other matches that continuously caused the game to crash, something which has been problematic for others since the release of the game and not because of this download. However, when managing your own team in the match engine I've had no problems. Great work!

Hello rabcp, thanks for your great work !!!

I have an issue when I'm playing Man United at home in the champions league : the 3D kit are not available neither the 2D kit.

But what bothers me the most is that there no champions league ads just random ads for the premier league and at the level of the upper stands Man U ads.

I m use to change the xml no club ads for the champions league or  league cup.

Away there is no problem. I noticed also that with Lazio when I was playing in Rome during a champions league game.

Are you aware of that or maybe it's skin issue ?

The kits have nothing to do with adboards, you need to use the IGE to remove competition specific kits, to the general licensed kit

 

on the adboards you need to switch the xml file before a European game to see competition ads, although in my opinion it’s too much of a phaff so stick with club ads

 

hope this works for you

Hi @rabcp , thanks for the update.  Just checking with you - at Celtic Park, the ads in the tiers now all have the Adidas symbols going right the way round the stadium but all the banners and flags have gone.  The video ads in the game are the same except without the new balance boot advert removed.  

 

At Ibrox, all the upper tier ads and flags have gone and are replaced by blue and white colours blurring into each other.  

 

Might have installed it wrong but before I start from scratch - is the above meant to be the case?

 

Thanks.

I’m guessing you are playing on a Mac? I believe that folders do not merge on a Mac as they would on a PC, so the Celtic folder with just Adidas would replace all the previous static ads, I‘ll be sure to include that In future read me files
