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.

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:

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
