Football Manager 2023 League Updates - FM23 Leagues Megapack - Around The Globe v2.5.5

The FM23 AroundTheGlobe Megapack

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. ;)

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.

What's included?

  • 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

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 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. His Megapack will be fully compatible with mine and its use is highly recommended for complete play enjoyment.
* Real values if sources where available. calculated values according to a Nations average expenditure (Wages etc.) to ensure, these Clubs are represented financially as realistic as possible.
** Real values if sources where available. calculated similar 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!

Malta (D2)
Moldova (D3) **
Montenegro (D2)
North Macedonia (D3)
San Marino (D1)

* - D1 was also recreated, as this is (unfortunately) not editable in the editor.
​​​** - B-teams were banned from D2 because the FM cannot cope with the mode otherwise.

Cook Islands - (D1)
Fiji - (D1)

    Many thanks for the Oceania! Just played a save in oceania but it wasnt really well made and I ended it after one season, now it's perfect!
  • Johnny Heinonen's avatar

    Hey thanks man for all the awesome work you have done, surely you got talent and it is nice to see what you can create.
    Hey I just was wondering, because I am from Sweden and I love football and actually have played all the divisions from division 2 down to division 6 during my days: could you consider making Swedish lower leagues please? As they are in real life. It would be so much fun.

    Thanks and keep up the good work

    hi, what folders do I put the files in exactly?
  • aeightBee's avatar
    Macedonian D2 used a unified format up until 2017, in which it later changed to two regional groups (East and West). Considering this is the first season that the 2MFL returned to a unified format, this isn't necessarily an issue.

    N.Macedonia D2 its wrong and its not updated :A from 2017 season its not updated fix it
