FM 2023 Other Files - FM23 Essentials - Audio Match Commentary
There are 2 versions of this mod available.

Free Version with Commentary: While it offers a taste of my innovation, please note that it has received limited updates since 2019 and is not finely tuned like the premium version. This pack comes with only 1000 sound triggers, it's just a glimpse of the complete version to give you an idea of how this mod works. Available for download on both Windows and MacBook platforms. .

Complete Version With Commentary - Experience the Ultimate Edition and Immerse Yourself in The World Of Football Manager with Live Updates, Featuring a Constant Streams of Fresh Sounds and Triggers, Enhanced Timing for Commentary, Enriched with Crowds, Stadium Effects, and Beyond - Dive into a Treasure Trove of Over 4500 Sound Triggers (Exclusively on My Personal Blog ( PURCHASE BASED )- Available for Windows).

We invite you to explore the Free Version to acquaint yourself with the mod's functionality. Yet, the Full Version stands in a league of its own, boasting an impressive 4000+ additional sounds, a sweeping overhaul in trigger timing, and the elimination of overlapping elements. Trust us when we say, it's a game-changer. But don't just take our word for it — check out the reviews below and witness the transformation for yourself.

Improvements from FM22 to FM23

  • Removal of more dead sound triggers that don't activate any sounds
  • European competition music still in
  • More sounds added for each triggered movement of a player
  • Massive overhaul of balancing the amount and how often triggers activate
  • Additional sound triggers added for new situations
  • Additional sounds added to existing triggers for more variation of commentary
  • More relevant crowd reaction sounds added to situations
  • Crowd chanting and singing added for better crowd atmosphere
  • Added stadium sounds ( announcers, substitution, added time )
  • VAR action
  • Goal Music
  • New Goal Variations - Hattrick - Comeback - Equalizer etc
  • Added pitch sounds
  • More Balancing of all sounds
And Many more.

Each year that passes by this pack becomes more and more improved.


I've created a video of the installation process for clear and precise help. It's pretty straight forward to be fair !


Windows Installation
Program files -> Steam -> steamapps -> common -> Football Manager 2023 -> data

MacBook Installation
Application Support -> Steam -> steamapps -> common -> Football Manager 2023 -> data

All versions are extremely simple to install. Just download the version you want, extract the x2 .fmf files (winzip or winrar) then place the 2 extracted files in the correct above directory.

Done !

When SI update the game it puts your game files back to default and also creates a new version of the game. I then release a new version of the mod Simply just paste your downloaded files back in the data file and your new pack will overwrite the default sounds again. DO NOT PASTE AN OLD VERSION AS IT WILL CRASH YOUR GAME.

Crowd and stadium sounds only versions are also available: ( Non Commentary)
British crowd and stadium pack
German crowd and stadium pack

Free version has now been updated. please redownload an install as older versions will not work.

For the PURCHASE BASED VERSION please check out

    Anyone having sound issues? Mine sounds like they’re under water. I’ve tried reinstalling the mod, reinstalling the game with and without the mod but nothing works. It was fine yesterday.

    Hi! I would really like to try this mod out, but im having problems getting it to work. The problem being ive got FM23 on microsoft store.

    Anyone managed to get it to work? Or any help would be great. Thx

    P.S. Ive put the files into the obvious places (Editor files), along with the skin & Database MODs..but theres no files to "Replace" there. These files are hidden somewhere else...finding them is the problem.

    Just purchased for FM24. Looking forward to using the latest version as I know it will be just as immersive and and an excellent add-on to my new FM24 journey. This sound pack is a must have and makes any FM edition so realistic . Keep up the fantastic work Metz, you are a real star of the FM community. Thank you. Oh and I love the goal music!

    just purchased the new file for fm 24. I think Miles should start thinking about bringing metz into the team because this is an incredible addition to the game. I purchased last year and will continue to support Metz.
    Keep up the great work

    Currently re writing the new files for fm24, also having to change quite a bit with timings of sounds and new stuff that has been added. This will take a week or so...working hard to keep this going.
