How does it work?

When you use this file the game will have a new playable nation called "sortitoutsi Custom Start Date".

This will let you start in May 2022. All the real fixtures will be filled in so you should have real league fixtures.

All the real world transfers will have happened as well as of today (even though you're starting in May).

However cup fixtures may not always work properly, this is a limitation of Football Manager itself and not something we can fix.
