Football Manager 2017 Facepacks - FM Scope Facepack 2017
Our scope style facepack includes over 92,700 faces of players, staff and referees for all playable leagues on Football Manager 2017.
It's a sleek and modern circular portrait style in standard size of 180x180 pixels.

It is intended for use with FM 2017, but it will work with all versions of the game from FM09 onward.

This megapack was made possible in association with the amazing people who produce the DF11 facepacks. THANKS to necjeff for granting his permission to use their top notch collection as base for this megapack.

Scope style is originally created by and its production started in February 2012. The Scope faces collection has been repacked as one megapack and first became available on October 26th, 2016.

Scope Faces Megapack 2017 base pack contains a total of 85,690 faces and takes up 4,18 GB of space.
With the monthly update packs, the collection extends to 92,771 faces and takes up 4,50 GB of space

Redistribution Policy

You are welcome to share this pack on other sites.
All we ask is to add link credit to this official page.

Download Options

Currently the "Download Now" big red button points to a mirror. However, they have recently introduced some strange limits with downloads to certain countries, so it might not work well for everyone.

Download The Torrent File

If you're not familiar with torrents, it's best to avoid it.
But if you really want to get this pack via torrent AND help others get it as well, you need a torrent client. I personally recomment qBittorrent.

Please be kind enough to help with seeding once you download the pack, so that more people will be able to download it fast.

How to add the Scope Facepack to FM17

  1. Download the .zip archive and use a tool such as 7-zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for MacOSX to extract its contents.

  2. Move the extracted folder "Scope Faces Megapack 2017" to:
    Regular FM:
    \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\graphics\faces\
    FM Touch:
    \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager Touch 2017\graphics\faces\
    Create the folders "graphics" and "faces" if they don't exist.

  3. Open Football Manager 2017 (or Touch) and go to Preferences > Interface.
    Click the "Clear Cache" button. Return to the same screen.
    Enable "Reload skin when confirming changes in Preferences".
    Click the "Reload Skin" button.
    There should be a box that pops up saying 'loading image data for the new skin'. Once this is done scope facepack should be working within the game.

Download the Update Packs

For our update packs we'll be following the DF11 release schedule, so you can expect us to have an update pack ready shortly after DF11 publish their own. The updates between the 2 styles will include the same pictures, but we'll make sure to include some extras with every new pack.

How to install the update packs

To install November's update, extract the .zip file you downloaded and move all files inside the "Scope Faces - 2016 November Update" folder to your "Scope Faces Megapack 2017" folder. Overwrite the files it's asking you to, including the config.xml file (especially this one).
Then clear cache and reload skin from FM17 preferences as usual.
Repeat this process for all update packs.

How to make requests

I no longer have the luxury of time to be searching and converting pictures myself. So if you have a request, please find the pictures on your own, crop them in square shape of at least 178x178 pixels and name them after their unique IDs in-game. Then send me the files either via email or via private message. The pics that pass my criteria will get included in the next update pack.


Scope style is created by Stam from but this megapack wouldn't be possible without the help from necjeff and his amazing team at DF11 Facepacks. Thank you Jeff!!

    @Stam Hey Stam, I have to thank for your great job! I found an error with the last update, André Silva from Porto (now AC Milan) has the wrong picture, instead it has a picture of Musachio which is other AC Milan player. Thanks!

    Hey, guys, I'm on Mac and I can't seem to get the face pack to work. I've cleared my cache, reloaded skins, I've renamed the file exported it as .zip and .rar and it doesn't work! If anyone knows how to solve this, it would be awesome if you could tell me.

    Sad to see there's still no pic for Cristian Romero, missing even on the June update! A decent "wonderkid" and Argentina international and Chelsea centre-back in my savegame (now in 2021)

    Cheers, apart from that excellent work!
  • Stam's avatar
    Next update pack will arrive on the first week of July with thousands of new / updated faces. Any requests will be included as long as you follow these guidelines. I'll still try to work with requests that don't fulfill my criteria.


    @The Yurpman: I'm glad you appreciate this pack. Thanks for the kind words :)

    Please, new face for Adolphe Teikeu (71022883)
    He had his face created by the game, but when I was installed the ScopeFaces, his face dissappear :(.

    Once again, thank you Stam for all of your hard work to make a great game even better!

    @SSangboi: Except Xavier Simons doesn't exist on the official FM17 database. You must be using a custom database with added players on random unofficial IDs.
  • SSangboi's avatar
    You might wanna check xavier simons from barca, he has a face of an older guy lol he's 14
  • mirkoferrari's avatar
    @Stam Thank you very much and sorry for the mess really !!

    Quick update: There's a slight delay for May's update pack because I'm still trying to complete hundreds of requests, while having to waste precious time Googling for photos of decent quality. The pack will be ready during this weekend, but I'm going to wait for Thursday to combine it with DF11 May's update.

    I no longer have the luxury of time to be searching and converting pictures myself. So if you have a request, please find the pictures on your own, crop them in square shape of at least 178x178 pixels and name them after their unique IDs in-game.
