Football Manager 2018 Skins - Champions League skin for FM18
The “Champions League skin” is now back with a version adapted for FM 2018.

Released: 22 December 2017 - v1.0
Updated: 29 January 2018 - v1.1

This skin is optimized for HD resolutions (resolution of 1920x1080 windowed and full screen).

I created this skin for my personal use and it has been tested mainly in HD resolution, there will be NO low(er) resolution version available (or made by me) and other resolutions are not supported.


This skin wouldn't have been possible without the work of:
  • El Comandante Qwas (Nocturno skin)
  • Dasz8
  • Pikawa (CFM Skin)
  • FLUT (great inbox panels!)
  • Emil Debski (Vitrex skin (2016/2017 version), sidebar icons and minor graphic enhancements)
  • OPZ
  • D_LO_
  • TheBantams/Rick Thorne (Andromeda skin)
  • Wannachupbrew
  • Gunzo
  • Jovovich (Milla skin)
  • Michaeltmurrayuk
and many others!

Added Graphics

Recommended (not included) for use with this skin are:
  • Facepack of your choice
  • Logo and kits packs
  • Cities megapack (showing city pictures on club screens)
  • Stadium background packs

  1. Download and extract the .7z file using a free tool such as 7-zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac.

  2. Place the "Champions League 2018" folder here:
    Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2018\skins
    Create the folder "skins" if it doesn't exist.

    You should see Champions League 2018 as options in the skin drop down of the Overview box.
    Hit the Confirm button.
    You may need to restart FM18 after selecting the skin to ensure the sidebar colours work properly.

Please note this skin is provided as is. It has nothing to do with Sports Interactive or SEGA and won't be supported by them.

    Have a look here, the issues you mentioned have been resolved and fixes are in the thread below.

    There is also an updated link for fixes in the thread itself:

    Updates/bug fixes for version 1.1:

    - team squad numbers selection; when selecting shirt numbers for the team the selection bar would "jump"to the right of the screen

    - "heat-map" in pitch in inbox section wouldn't show anymore after update to 18.3.0/18.3.1 etc.

    - team talk pop-up would no longer show options/text after update to 18.3.0/18.3.1 etc.

    - match half time panel would default only to match stats

    All these issues have been fixed, unpack the below archive in the "panels" folder of the skin and overwrite when prompted, make sure to reload the skin as always!

    (ATTENTION: these fixes are already present in version 1.3, so if you have this version no need to update/download)

    There is a new 1.3 version with lots of enhancements, on page 3 in the thread (post from March 15) you can see some screenshots of the improvements. All fixes are included in this 1.3 version as well. the version is by donation only and you will have to PM me for details.

    A potentially good skin but not yet complete. The team shirt on the titlebar is overlapped and the pre-match manager briefing is not working.
