Football Manager 2022 League Updates - FM 2022 England Lower Leagues to Level 13
This is the biggest English database available for Football Manager 2022. Dan is back for another installment of his England database.

You can manage a club 13 leagues down the English football pyramid. By the time you reach Premier League (assuming you can win consecutive promotions every year), most of the real players you know would likely be retired and you'd be playing in a fantastic football world filled with newgens.

This England Level 13 database for FM22 includes real structure and rules, as well as all the cups.
It's currently complete down to level 13, but it's a Work In Progress and more levels will be added along the way. A Gargantuan task no doubt.

Released: 16 November 2021
Updated: 14 June 2022

Known Issues

Due to an issue with the game you will have to select another nation alongside this database to select a season start date when setting up a new game.
The relegation places in the Vanarama National League North & South divisions are not showing correctly in game, 4 go down from each of these divisions.
Due to issues with the pregame editor, there are also no youth leagues loading up and no discipline rules.

  • mattyLivmorgan2023's avatar
    how can i download the leagues?
  • Quickzz's avatar
    Thanks for your hard work!

    Does the Vanarama League start in october every season or only the 1st one? This can't be set to start in August? I want to start with Wrexham but then we play a lot of matches in a short time :P
  • shieldscw's avatar
    So, is anyone willing to make the FM19 logo pack work with FM22 by rearranging all the club IDs? If your price isn't too crazy I'd be willing to pay for your time!

  • Themosgr's avatar
    Any one knows when will this be available to download?
  • Sandbag's avatar
    Hi thanks for the database
  • Sandbag's avatar
    Ive been playing this and running a couple tests over the past few days, So far a fix for the no U18/U23 is to start with no added players and force create U18/U23 teams using a additional database addon. Also in tier 10 / 9 teams promoted through playoffs are just jumping around tier 10 and 9 and not receiving promotion unless you are the team in automatic promotion spot. Yes there's no disciplinary rules but this can also be fixed with addon and ive also noticed funding for some teams like Fc isle of man to be crazy after match day ticket revenue.
  • crazygang's avatar
    Problem is with the pre game editor and before that gets fixed not much they can do about it. Go to Dans Twitter for updates.
  • comrie1990's avatar
    I appreciate the time and effort these things take to get made/modify/edit.. but I too, am wondering, when will this be fixed
  • silvioniko's avatar
    when will this be available to download?
  • allanlegend84's avatar
    heya when will this be available to download?
  • jaked7's avatar
    love this, but yea no transfer windows could this be fixed?
  • hootie1210's avatar
    Just to inform you that while running this database, there is no transfer window for any of the English leagues. Can you amend this please
  • Shefeld Hammer's avatar
    Any chance you can reflect the updated points deductions for derby and reading in your updated file?
  • EdnightPT's avatar
    im waiting for an update :D
  • Stam's avatar
    Following Dan's request, I've taken down the download buttons for the time being because the known issues appear to be severe enough. The problems are with the pregame editor, and until SI fix them, this can't be done in the way it's intended.

    G'day - I've been using Dan's lower leagues for a couple of years now. I lost the U18/U23 leagues. I've just noticed that this has already been flagged - I'll stay tuned for the fix. I'm re-incarnating New Brighton - I'm going to flog Cammell Laird, Vauxhall Motors and Tranmere Rovers at every opportunity! Maybe one day put Everton back in their place... Good on you Dan!
  • Shefeld Hammer's avatar
    Glad it worked for you mate!
  • Burnaz's avatar
    Using a different start date for the season fixed it
  • Shefeld Hammer's avatar
    Just one question for the maker of this superb add on. Im trying to add in the points deductions for derby and reading using the advanced rules. However, when I get to the point where i need to test the rules it states that for england i need a minimum and maximum of 333 teams and it can only find 327. Therefore it wont let me test and save.
  • Shefeld Hammer's avatar
    I solved my crashing problem. It was simple. I wasnt selecting a start date for the season. Make sure you add at least one other country and select their start date. I used Scotland because their league starts roughly the same date. Works perfectly now.
