We are going into the next round! After I already introduced you to the world of the most bizarre countries in the world with my editor knowledge in FM21 and FM22 (unfortunately not completely), it is now time to do the same in FM23. 81.5 hours of "playing time" in my Football Manager 2023 editor already and that can only mean one thing: the AroundTheGlobe megapack is growing and growing. Whether I'm reading the league rules of the Armenian league with my non-existent knowledge of Armenian or looking up the game mode of the football league in South Sudan on 14 different pages, there is always something to do. However, all this work is by no means pointless, because with my files I contribute to the level of education of quite a few FM users, because no one can tell me that they have never read up on the starting country of their FM save as if it were a doctoral thesis. But enough about me, you are not here because of my words, but because of my files. - The earth is round, so is football. Have fun with it. 😉
Introduction - Content
We have now arrived at FM23 and once again my goal is to make all countries of the six continents playable for you. A huge task, but one that can be mastered in any case thanks to my enjoyment of the editor. As in previous years, the files will be divided into three versions (see below). Also this year, there will be the well-known extra files, but this time already in version 1, version 2 (if these file(s) work) and also in version 3. Altogether, there will be more than 200 files again, which should bring the game enjoyment of the FM to the next level.
Confederation of African Football - Version 2
Asian Football Confederation - Version 2
Union of European Football Associations - Version 1
Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football - Version 3
Oceania Football Confederation - Version 3
Confederación Sudamericana de Fútbol - Version 1
Now we come to the further drivel that so and so hardly anyone will read 😛
Realism is written in capital letters for me, because without realism the fun of the game suffers extremely and the FM is supposed to be fun.
In order to guarantee realism, all files have been and will be created in the extended rules of the editor (well, the basic rules can't do anything either ;D) and mainly contain changes in the following areas:
- Squad registration rules (foreigner rules, age restrictions).
- Realistic league formats, for example Apertura/Clausura and whatever else the football associations have come up with.
- Realistic TV money*
- Realistic prize money**
- VAR (Video Assistant Referee) added
- New clubs - if the researchers have messed up again
- TV broadcasts added
- Added academy leagues in countries where it is necessary (mainly Africa and Asia)
My work is still closely linked to that of @Daveincid. Its Megapack is fully compatible with mine and its use is highly recommended for ideal play fun.
* Real values when sources are available. Calculated values according to the average expenditure of a nation (wages etc.) to ensure that clubs are represented as realistically as possible financially.
** Real values when sources are available. Calculated similarly to TV money to ensure balance.

* For India, I have created the entire league system from scratch meaning I’ve removed all of the default database changes created by Sports Interactive.
** The only current information known from North Korea is that the league is playing in the current season. However, there is no information on which teams are participating, etc. Therefore, it was decided to include two files in the pack. One file without any league and one file with a “fantasy league” (the latest information). In this way, everyone can decide for themselves which variant to use. ONLY ONE OF THE TWO FILES SHOULD BE LOADED!

Epic stuff mate 👌
Yees! Thank you! I've been waiting for this. Does anyone know a random Club Generator which includes Around the Globe leagues as well?
Just use this (probably only makes sense after V3) https://random.country/, then use a number generator to determine the division and press the "Random club" button in FM at the end. ^^
Small Hotfix: 1.01
Great job as always @DaveTheEditor!
A little info in between: @Daveincid and I also have a Discord server. So if you don't want to miss anything around our files and want to exchange with people around the globe, we can only advise you to join.
Discord server: RealismMod FM
wanting for Kuwaiti league
where do i put the extracted files ?
Isn't there a problem with the rules of the Maltese championship? I took a club in the first division and I am limited to 7 foreign players (including European) while I have 11 foreign players in my team. Isn't the rule 7 players from outside the European Union? This would seem more logical as there are a lot of European players in Maltese teams.
Hi, I'm real staff of AC Escaldes (first andorran division) and I can make your spectacular job easy, firstly you need to change last cup winner, don't UE Sant Julia, we won AC Escaldes, it's that the reason we start playing UEFA Conference League. The problem isn't miss the title, is the super cup, the super cup plays Inter d'Escaldes vs AC Escaldes. Secondly the second division this year have the 3rd places to up to first division and the 4th place play a play off with 7 first division place. next year first division wonna have 10 teams!! thanks for your job

Hi @DaveTheEditor the U17 competions isn't showing for me
Richie Joshua Kimbumina
Do you use any other files too? It's the first time that I am hearing that they aren't showing up.
Hello dave, whats the progress on Version 2? cant wait to play on asia especially japan
thanks for your hard work.
when V2 will be available
I wanted to ask about the possibility ofmaking a Baltic league. It was a Baltic cup similar to Royal League in Scandinavia. I tried to make it myself, but i seriously messed up.
Seems that these leagues do not participate in the continental cups, do they? Just started a new save in Kazakhstan and there's no mention in the Rules about CL or other UEFA cups. Only that the lowest 2 are relegated.
Thank for recreating the Latvian leagues' structure. Stupid question - will this update work on FM21?
No, it won't.
Hey mate! I checked it and it works properly. 🙂 I don't know why it isn't shown in the rules, but this is a thing only SI will know.
i guess I need to try once more, thanks for info!
I have another good news for YOU:
The V2 of my #AroundTheGlobe megapack is already in the test phase and will be released soon.
Not long now, you will have Africa, Asia, as well as a small pre-season cup at your disposal. 🖍️
Let the hype begin!
Can you already hear it? IT'S TIME FOR A RELEASE!
V2 of the AroundTheGlobe megapack will be released on Saturday, 18th February 2023 2:00am (PHT).
You can already count down the hours until Asia, Africa and The Atlantic Cup are finally available to you.
Who of you can find out when it will be released in your time zone? Philippines was the result of a random generator. 😉
I am very sorry. Google gave me the wrong abbreviation for the Philippine time zone. It is PHT and not PST. I hope no one planned the release for Pacific Standard Time.
THE WAIT IS OVER!
V2 of the AroundTheGlobe Megapack is finally available for download. 🙂
Africa, Asia and the amazing Atlantic Cup are now ready to be conquered and to be trophy cabinet.
The starting post has been updated!
Hello everyone….Big Thanks for DaveTheEditor for his excellent work.
I am curious to add Japan League cause i never add Japan in all my life with FM.
Does anybody knows ….If i add the J1 and all the Leagues from ( Europe, Asia , Africa, South Africa ) will it work ?
Thanks …hope someone will asnwer my post.
Holy crap Dave, wasn;t expecting that many leagues! Awesome stuff as usual.
However, as usual, Oceania and Caribbean most important to me (though there is an excllent Caribbean already available) shall wait for yours to compare as seems no one done/doing a comprehensive Oceania this year 😢
Looking forward to v3! Take care.
