FM 2023 Other Files - FM23 Essentials - Audio Match Commentary
There are 2 versions of this mod available.
Free version with commentary - Limited updates - not fully optimized and only 1000 sound triggers (download now) WINDOWS and MACKBOOK
Full version with commentary - Live updates - Full to the brim with over 4500 sound triggers ( my personal blog - purchase based ) WINDOWS

Please do try the Free Version to get a feel of how this mod works, however the Full Version is far superior in every way as this has had multiple updates and due to the added amount of work that has been put into it, over 4000 more sounds.

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. Simply just paste your downloaded files back in the data file and your pack will overwrite the default sounds again.

For the FULL PAID VERSION you may want to check out

Update: Updated to Version 2.7 ON 02/03/2023 - For YOUR UPDATE, PLEASE GO TO MY SITE AND GO TO THE UPDATE PAGE

Crowd and stadium sounds only versions are also available: ( Non Commentary)

British crowd and stadium pack
German crowd and stadium pack

    @pedzzzz after the update your files go back to default so you will need to re install the pack. Hope this helps

    I can't find the download I purchased it from the personal file and can't find it anymore

    @richardcharlston have you heard the crowd when the ref gives a penalty singing..... Who's the [email protected] in the black... Makes me chuckle every time I hear it
  • Richardcharlston's avatar
    I have to say the Ambience file is also amazing, I heard “Marching on together” watching Leeds, also “your support is f**king s*it”, superb stuff

    @greyedoutman thanks for you great feedback.... Best new feature in FM23 is........ Metz Sound pack
  • greyedoutman's avatar
    Im a bit sad that my favourite new feature for FM23 is something that wasn't added by SI. This is SO cool! I wish I'd known about it for previous FMs. It's amazing! Thanks!

    I've sent you it over via email mate.
  • svranca's avatar
    Where do I find it? I purchased the entire package from your personal file but cannot find the download anymore?

    PS. Amazing work
  • MetzFM's avatar
    @svranca : the full launch today resets the data file back to default so all you have to do is re install the pack again. then away you go again
  • svranca's avatar
    It looks like the commentary and sound went away with the final version of FM23. Is anyone experiencing the same issue?

    @MetzFM Where is the audio only version to download and how do I get it to work in game?

    It works for the full version although I am over the next few days looking at optimisation for this as there are again a few things that have changed on full release. Once I have optimized it I will send it out via email to everyone that has purchased it.
  • franck69's avatar
    Nope ! I'am waiting for the "audio only" version
  • Manager34's avatar
    Did someone already check if the full version still works without problems after the release of full fm23 last night?
  • richbell82's avatar
    Hi there, i love the full com's and so glad i paid. But how can i get the no com's version please? At the time it wasn't an option or i would have gone for that you see. Love your work and a huge thanks from me
  • sntExz's avatar
    Thanks for your work!
  • qpfktlffj0's avatar
    Thank you for making a good one. I'll use it well.
    Can I use it with my desktop and laptop with one payment?
  • MetzFM's avatar
    @Matty47 it's already out mate. The stadium/crowd pack is the Football Ambience Pack.
  • Matty47's avatar
    When do you think crowd and stadium only pack will be released?
  • Manager34's avatar
    The new ambience version seems great, just watched the video on your homepage.
