FM 2018 Misc Graphics - Football Manager 2018 Backgrounds Megapack (UPDATE 01)
Starting from this year, I am responsible for the backgrounds megapack. Initialy DazS8’s project, he hand it down to me when he had to leave the community for personal matters. Since ManagerOnline has evolved a lot, few changes have been made (~100). A monthly update will be offered for this megapack. If you run into any mistake, or if you would like to suggest an improvement on an existing image, let me know by commenting. I am listening to the community in order to make this pack yours.

For many years DazS8 have wanted to make a large pack using the many backgrounds by himself and others. Well here it is, got to be a must for every FM fan a super pack full of quality images to enhance your gaming experience. All have the correct xml/config files to work correctly and I have fully tested the whole pack with no problems. Certain backgrounds will show on certain screens…. City pack images will show on all Club screens. Stadiums will show on all Team screens, etc.

An update is available for the largest Backgrounds Packs (RED BUTTON TOO)

What's in the pack?

STADIUMS (overview)

Thousands of backgrounds all in one very impressive pack.

Changelist Update 01 :
-All changes are in high resolutions (1920*1080px)
-New default image, finished lawn mower
-New default mini stadiums images
-Rework main world competitions and the 5 major championships images
-Rework confederations images
-Changes and additions stadiums and cities images in England and France (not finished)

    Hello, i use the "STADIUMS (overview)" for FM19. But I have a Mistake with Camp Nou Stadium (ID 1040). It show only the Normal Stadium but not the Overview Stadium, all other overview Stadiums shows correct. What is the Mistake with the Stadium? I use Andromeda Final Skin, the Camp Nou Picture has the correct ID Name (1040) and the Stadium is in the config File, what is the Mistake? Greetz

  • Aron Axe's avatar


    Just an error that not appear like Windows notification during transfer data between HDDs, there were not transferred some last folders, including the most important for me, Stadium overview folder.

    I tried also Andromeda skin, but the same problem, first place for photo on Stadium panel, has the same default photo, so question, Where may appear photos of stadiums from the folder of each nation? mini stadium folder appear properly. Maybe some error in paths in config.xml files?
    In FM 17 were no problems.

    Great work guys! One question, Is this megapack compatible with Flut skin? that no appear in compatibility description, I ask because I have some little issues with appearing first photo on Stadium panel that doesn't appear, instead the mini stadium photo, appear normally on second place for that. Someone have same problem like me? It's a shame because, FLut skin is the most downloaded skin like Vulrak megapack, both great works.
    In FM17 all worked normally.

    Ps: Sorry for bad english, I'm a foreigner. Greetings from Italian League

    Hey men, Nice work !!

    I download and extract Update 01. But a lot of Players they are the Backround Picture is lost. Like all La Liga , german Bundesliga players, Frange league Players and more.
  • Vulrak's avatar
    Strange SpadeXII, with the update 01 it should be set. Try to install it again or I'll give you a fix. Empty your cache. Refill your skin.

    For Update 02, there will be a little delay. I took part in FMWEC and it took me a long time.
