Football Manager 2022 Data Updates - FM22 Realistic Media Pack
A complete media collection for FM 2022. Loads of work on it between FM21 and FM22. Lots of duplicates removed and tidied up.

Updated: 11 December 2021

More Journalists & Their Personalities

  • Added journalists and personalities for about 80% of all 1,000
  • Personalities based on employer
  • Example: Someone from a less reputable outlet may be dishonest or ill-tempered, but someone from a very good outlet may be honest or factual.
  • 20% Personalities based on real life written articles
  • Example: A journalist may work for a gossip outlet, but their articles may be more tactical or more thorough and honest than the rest of their coworkers. Or, one journalist may be very detailed and long-winded, while another may simply ask one question, and write a short article of a few sentences.
  • Employees added based on outlet size
  • Example: Bigger media outlets may have several journalists, while smaller may have only one.
  • 20% Have Favored Clubs
  • These are based on their favorite clubs or clubs they regularly report on/are inside sources for.

More Media & Their Styles:

  • Added top-club dedicated websites with their real life journalists & individual personalities
  • Added local media outlets & their real life journalists & individual personalities for:
  • USA, Czech Republic, Belgium, Austria, Mexico, Norway, Portugal, France, and a few minor here and there(Turkey, Guatemala, Peru, etc
  • Different mediums of media outlets have differing coverage and frequency
  • Example: A Magazine may be monthly, A newspaper daily or bi-weekly, their online counterparts daily.

Realistic Scope Settings:

Media will cover areas they cover in real life.
Examples: Other media packs may have had an EPL-only media covering all of Europe. They now only cover EPL.
Or a Norwegian media may cover Norway, along with EPL, and La Liga. They cover those competitions in FM also.


100 Local bookmakers for:
USA, Ukraine, Turkey, England, Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, Russia, Portugal, Poland, Norway, Greece, Germany, France, Denmark, Czech, Croatia, China, Colombia, Brazil, Bosnia, & Argentina

    U cant use it before fm23 i fully released
    But I think it will work in fm23 aswell
  • jmh259's avatar
    does this work on fm23?
  • Joe5p's avatar
    Yes, it works, but you need to start a new save.
  • Van Mond - FM Content's avatar
    Does this work for current 22.2 patch folks?
  • Joe5p's avatar
    skybluesng, no it needs a new save. However, I would recommend any user playing with more than one editor file should start a new game after the next minor patch (due soon). Up until now, FM22 has not loaded more than one editor file properly (people are missing if created in the FM22 editor). For example, if you use an updated player/staff file(s), agent file and media file and any new people have been added to those files since FM22 came out, only the people in the first file to load will appear. It means the full impact of all the packs is diluted. SI have said that they have fixed the issue and it will be in the next minor patch released soon.

    My game is in second season now, can this pack still work on a saved game?
  • Joe5p's avatar
    Minor update 11/12/21. This file will be updated as often as necessary/possible.
  • Joe5p's avatar
    Now taking requests to add journalists. SI have fixed the editor issue in sense that with next update, it will be possible to add journalists to sources. Issues with using more than one editor file to load people will have gone. If you are playing with this file, and know of journalists that should be aligned to specific sources then send a PM and we will get them in.

    Minor update live via direct download and steam. Sorted some issues with large Scottish and English media missing/inactive and added a new German source. For now, it is not possible to add journalists as there is an error SI are working on. Any source requests can be shared here or sent as a pm.

    Direct download works fine. Make sure to pause browser addons such as 'privacy badger' or similar because these will trigger our anti-leech mechanism.
    And yes, it's compatible with Pr0's pack because he doesn't have a file with media.
  • Joe5p's avatar
    henry80, it should work fine, as I do not think that TheNotorious includes media in his update.
  • henry80's avatar
    Direct Download don`t work.

    This add-on is compatible with FM22 Transfers & Data Update Packs by TheNotoriousPr0 ?
