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
