Football Manager 2023 League Updates - FM 2023 England Lower Leagues to Level 10
This is the biggest English database available for Football Manager 2023. Dan is back for another installment of his England database.

You can manage a club 10 leagues down the English football pyramid. By the time you reach Premier League (assuming you can win consecutive promotions every year), most of the real players you know would likely be retired and you'd be playing in a fantastic football world filled with newgens.

This England Level 10 database for FM23 includes real structure and rules, as well as all the cups.
It's currently complete down to level 10, but it's a Work In Progress and more levels will be added along the way. A Gargantuan task no doubt.

Released: 25 November 2022

Known Issues

Due to a bug within the pre-game editor, 8 reserve teams who play in Level 10 leagues have been left out this database, once the issue is fixed Dan will add them in.
Despite his best efforts there will be some strange club movements into leagues not in their region, unfortunately the game itself isn't clever enough to stop this.

    Hey, any chance this file could have messed up injury timetables? Trying to discern which new file might have made some things a bit wonky, I'm getting thigh strains, gashed shins, and twisted ankles taking players out for 1-2 months

    The Scouting Budget of teams in the lower leagues is absolutely unrealistic..

    In the editor data file, "Premier League" is still named "Premier Division", I don't know if this is intended but in any case, it looks like the Real Names Licence Fix by TheNotoriousPr0 doesn't overwrite it.

    I fixed it for myself by simply going to the editor, renaming the competition and saving the editor data. Wanted to let you know this if you'd like to update the file.

    Great job Dan. "Félicitations" from Belgium.
