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 2,5

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!

Hey Dave thanks a lot, great job, well done. 


I want to give you information and ask to update Azerbaijan league (First League). In season 22/23 there is a limit for a foreign players 7 and must be 4 local players (7+4) system and no limit (official info from league on their web site). There is no cap on any number of foreign players. The limit of foreign players in a match is no more than 7. Also no restriction with young players in starting squad. 


Hope you'll see.


Next season 23/2024 we will have not 10 but 12 teams.

I have a problem with the update which adds the U17 World Cup.


France U17 does not participate in the Euro U17 qualifiers (except the first season in 2023) and therefore cannot qualify for the Euro U17 and the World Cup U17.


Can someone check if the problem is present? You have to go look at the France U18 calendar and see if there are matches from the 2024 season for the Euro U17 qualifiers.

I'm Working on a USA database system, it won't be 100% accurate, I've take some liberties to clean up the mess.  The leagues will be 99% accurate and some added cups and full U19 youth systems.  The MLS, USLC, USL1, USL2 will all be as accurate as possible…  If your interested let me know!


very interested

The files must be placed in this directory without any sub-folders


C:\Users\your user name\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2023\editor data


Then you should be able to select new nations and leagues.
