Winter balls updated for applicable leagues.

Cup competitions with a league then knockout phase may not work due to the coding. I have added the ones that I could think of e.g. Champions League, Europa League, World Cup etc.

If there are any issues, anything missing, requests etc. let me know.




Over 80+ 3D Match Balls for FM24.

The ball will change depending on what competition you are playing in.


How to Install

Extract the ‘balls’ zip file. 

Then move the ‘balls’ folder to Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2024\graphics\pictures - (create any folders if you don't have them)

It is important that the ‘config’ file is in the ‘balls’ folder.


If anyone has any requests or feedback on the balls, let me know.


I have not tested every ball just so you are aware.


Credit to Bartdude as I used his previous ‘3D Balls Match Pack’ as inspiration to create these.

Hey, my Scottish cup ball is transparent, any idea where I've gone wrong, been using the old pack for years without issue.


Thanks in advance.


EDIT: I managed to sort it, it looks like the Scottish Cup was missing from the config file. I added the below line to the config to resolve the issue, just added it under the Scottish League Cup entry.


<!-- Scotland - Scottish Cup -->
 <record from="spfl" to="graphics/pictures/balls/1301430/default"/>

I wanted to make (or copy) balls for a mod. I took your pack - with your name in it - and added some balls for the mod.  That's OK?


Question: how does that cup style Knockout Standard Ball mode work?

I mean, that what balls will those teams use BEFORE the knockout phase? Normal league ball?

What kind of line should there be in config file?


Can the ‘friendly’ ball be defined league by league?

The ball for Scottish Cup is undefined or the configuration is incorrect. It is defined as 1301431 while it is 1301430 is the game.


To fix:

  1. In "graphics/balls" folder open Configuration file in Notepad and find “Scotland”.
  2. Either change League Cup/“spfl” id from “1301431” to “1301430” or add a new definition with the new ID and a winter ball as below:

<!-- Scotland - League Cup -->

<record from="spfl" to="graphics/pictures/balls/1301431/default"/>

<!-- Scotland - Scottish Cup -->

<record from="spfl" to="graphics/pictures/balls/1301430/default"/>

<record from="spfl w" to="graphics/pictures/balls/1301430/winter"/>
