News - Football Manager 2023 Patch 23.4.0 - February Transfer Data Update
Sports Interactive have released the February Transfer Window Update for Football Manager 2023 on March 29th.

It is the fourth year in a row that we get the winter transfers data in 2 parts instead of 1, so it appears this approach has become the norm by now.

Featuring more than 250,000 database changes since the Main Data Update on March 2nd, this update contains deals that happened during February including MLS.

Owing to a change to the closing date of Chinese transfer window, that data is not included here. Instead, a further update addressing the relevant moves specifically just covering the ins and outs of the Chinese leagues will be released in the coming weeks.

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 29th, 2023
File size: 1.1GB

The Final Winter Update for Football Manager 2023 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 2023 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.

23.4 List of Changes

- Fixed rare crash affecting some users with saves started with December 2022 start date
- Addressed an issue where users can’t ask the board to upgrade Youth Recruitment to maximum level
- Addressed an issue where the Team Instructions will disappear when users change formation via the Formation dropdown menu in Tactics
- Fixed an issue where Wing Play and Route One tactical styles are missing from the Tactical Style dropdown menu in Tactics
- Fixed an issue where users were unable to unlock the ‘On Top of the World’ achievement on Microsoft Store

    @mloin: There's no download link. Official patches are automatically downloaded/installed via the platform you bought the game at. For example, on Steam you just need to be in online mode and restart the game in order to get it updated.
