I've always made one of these files for myself but I think it's time to share it with everybody else and create something that can continue to evolve for the community.

My file is a fix to some of the Player Shirt Names that do not exist in the game, this usually results in really long names being displayed in the tactics and match screens - you will definitely encounter this if you manage in the Turkish League, Brazilian League and Portuguese League in particular.

The file in its first version contains 516 player changes to the database.

Extensive research has taken place to ensure the real genuine shirt names are used - I'd also like to use this thread to update this file should people encounter players that I've missed.

The file will only be applicable to new saves - And Player Shirt Names will need to be turned on in Preferences/Interface/Team Screen

I'm really interested to hear your feedback if this has made your gaming experience better and if its something you would like me to continue to do every season - Enjoy!!
