News - Football Manager 2022 Patch 22.4.0 - February Transfer Data Update
Sports Interactive have released the February Transfer Window Update for Football Manager 2022 on March 24th. It was a bit delayed due to the changes with Chelsea's ownership and the war in Ukraine with its consequences to Russian football.

It is the third year in a row that we get the winter transfers data in 2 parts instead of 1, so it's likely this approach will be the norm going forward.

Deals that happened in China, Russia, MLS, as well as free transfers in the EFL are included in this Update.

A gameplay patch containing fixes and improvements across multiple areas of the game is also included in this Update. These fixes will work in your existing saves.

Date Released: March 24th, 2022
File size: 519MB

The Final Winter Update for Football Manager 2022 is now complete, with this second part covering transfers from windows that closed during February, database updates and a few outstanding gameplay fixes.

To gain access to the new data and updated league rules you will be required to start a new game, however the majority of changes and fixes are save game compatible meaning you’re fine to continue any pre-existing save.
This means that upon starting a new game, the latest database will be available with updated squads, managers and everything else which happened before the February window closed.

To update you will need to close down Football Manager 2022 and re-launch for it to update. If this does not work for you or you feel it has not updated you will need to restart Steam or Epic Games.
Even if that doesn't do the trick, then verify the game cache will.

This Update is now live on FM22 (PC/Mac/Xbox Game Pass for PC), FM22 Xbox Edition (Console/PC/Game Pass) and FM22 Touch (Nintendo Switch). The FM22 Mobile (iOS/Android) one will arrive in a few days.

22.4 List of Changes

- Data Updates including transfer windows closing end of February
- Stability and crash fixes
- Addressed issue where Pre-Game Editor may not launch correctly on Windows Store/Game Pass
- Fix to allow user to change manager player picture
- Tweaks for AI loan offers, meaning less zero amount contributions
- Various network connectivity improvements for online modes
- Fix for keyboard shortcut settings in preferences
- Number of competition tweaks and updates, including 2022 promotion/relegation updates for a number of leagues outside of standard European calendar
- Multiple gameplay and database changes to reflect the current geopolitical situation

Here's what the last bullet means in a nutshell:

- league still fully playable
- players will be treated as EU nationals for 3 seasons

- clubs can't compete in EU competitions
- national team can't take part in international tournaments

- likely gets a new owner during 1st season & that removes the sanctions

    I wanted to play at least 10 seasons, it's great that there is an embargo on Russia and Belarus, just like in reality, but I would like it to be lifted in a year or two and everything to return to normal, this war will not last forever, this embargo for Russia is it for all seasons? even if I play 15 seasons it will be? Can you somehow set a lock period for Russia?

    It's automatic if you're online. You can't go back to the previous version. What's wrong with the new one?
