How to install this data update to FM 2021

  1. Open the file you downloaded with .rar or winzip.

  2. Select all .fmf files and copy-paste/extract/drag & drop them into the editor data folder, to the following location:
    Documents / Sports Interactive / Football Manager 2021 / editor data
    Create the "editor data" folder if it doesn't exist.

  3. Make a new "Career" game. Choose the "21.4.0 Update" database and select my files.

In case you have more editor data files:
When setting up a new game, do not have any other data update files ticked on your Editor Data Files screen except this one.
Choose only my files if you are not sure about the changes in every file. Many files together from different creators can cause crashes to the game, duplicates and other problems. Avoid using files from different creators.

    Hey, when is the Newcastle takeover going to be added?
  • djmartincape's avatar
    Hi pal, I’ve had a look through but can’t see it, unless I’ve missed it. Does your update include the changes to the CL away goals rule?
  • Special80's avatar
    Another question please :) why do you put Valencia CF in the Uefa Europa League 21-22 ? In the real life there is not. Thanks for your answer. Bye :)
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @Special80, there was no possible way to add 5 teams from Spain, that's why Sevilla had to be "sacrificed".
  • Special80's avatar
    Spanish Teams in Uefa Champions League 2021 - 2022: Atletico, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Siviglia + Villareal (Win Europa League 20 -21) ////// Uefa Europa League Teams 2021 - 2022 Real Sociedad. In your db Betis and Valencia too. Thanks :)
  • Special80's avatar
    In your dB Sevilla missing in Uefa Champions League 2021 - 2022. Last year Sevilla arrived fourth in La Liga Santander (Promotions and Relegations .FMF problems). Thanks for your attention :) Bye

  • loudtoneffc's avatar
    Will you be squeezing the Newcastle takeover into the final update?
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @Dre.dre, of course mate. You are welcome!
  • Dre.dre's avatar

    Thnx and keep up the good work
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @willz71172, English Community Shield 2021-2022.

    @Alain Khabat, they are updated in the "Russian New Format" file.
  • Alain Khabat's avatar
    I noticed a problem, I have the teams currently qualified in the European Cup in the Russian championship. But promotions / relegations are not updated in Russia.
  • willz71172's avatar

    Coach Shevchenko has not been in the Ukrainian national team for a long time ...
  • willz71172's avatar
    dont want then playable celtic and rangers just too play games in background
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @footy_fan89 + @intracampo, no, I am just adding some final things for the last 2 releases like transfers and so. Most things are already settled & we are just days away from FM22.

    @Rossenero15, No it doesn't make sense for my packs at least.

    @willz71172, and how do you determine if they play games? Since there is no playable leagues as the 5th it's logical that you don't see them playing matches.

    @WetPenguin, everything will work perfect with the titles and seasons. No worries.

    And NO guys, there are 200.000 database changes based on the fact that the game starts in 2020 and not 2021. So it's literally not logical to ask me to make the game start in 2021 and not 2020. It's FM21 after all, not FM22.
  • WetPenguin's avatar
    Hello, thanks for amazing data update.
    I was wondering is it possible to start the game in 2021? Because right now it starts in 2020, but all clubs have title history for 2021, so I wonder what will happen and what should I do.
  • willz71172's avatar
    can u have a look at scottish file so u can get rangers and celtic b teams show and play games like real life i noticed you have them there but dont work
  • Rossenero15's avatar
    Is there a way we can put the transfers through to start in 2021? to replicate real life? I am starting a save in 2021 and the 2020-21 squads stay as they were. Does that make sense? (Sorry)

  • footy_fan89's avatar
    Are you still doing CA/PA updates for the next few drops?

    Levi Colwill (18 y.o Chelsea CB at Huddersfield on loan) has started every game for them in the Championship and been one of their best performers as they sit around the playoffs, also one of the highest rated prospects at Chelsea currently, I think an upgrade would be fair since currently he's extremely underrated and doesn't even play ingame because of that

    thanks you

    pr0 Dover's point deduction derby can i get it now please so i could start a game
