News - Football Manager 2023 Patch 23.5.0 - China Data Update
Sports Interactive have released the China Data Update for Football Manager 2023 on May 9th.

It's the first time this receives a standalone release because of the later than usual closing of the Chinese transfer window. This Update features more than 83,000 database changes.

A new save game will be required to play with these competition and data-specific changes in place. There are a few small general gameplay fixes included in this update and these will take effect in current careers.

Date Released: May 9th, 2023
File size: 275.4 MB

A gameplay patch containing minor fixes and improvements is also included in this Update. These fixes will work in your existing saves.

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.
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.

23.5 List of Changes

- Addressed an issue where 'Add/Remove Leagues' was adding newgens as opposed to real players
- [FM23 Editor] Fixed an issue where specific editor files failed to be verified
- [FM23 Console] Addressed an issue where users were unable to start Versus mode with imported teams

If you encounter any issues post update, please use the official FAQ for troubleshooting suggestions. You can also contact [email protected] or use or SI's FM23 Bug Tracker for further support.

    Following the patch no issues with names etc. but my premiership badges and kits have defaulted back to the original. What am I missing?

    No new database?

    If there is no new database then presume there will be no change to the Real Names Fix download, am I right?
