Football Manager 2021 Views & Filters - Essential Football Manager 2021 Filters
This is a collection of custom filters for literally ALL player roles and also staff jobs, which has been super useful in previous Football Manager versions.

CAE created the custom filters for all Football Manager 2021 player roles:

For example, here's a role filter:

And Rober created custom filters for all Football Manager 2021 staff jobs:

This file is an exclusive!

How to use these custom filters in FM21

  1. Download the .zip archive and use a tool such as 7-zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for MacOSX to extract its contents.

  2. Move the 2 extracted .fmf files to your filters folder:
    \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\filters\

  3. Run Football Manager 2021 and import each custom filter in the appropriate screen.

For Mac OS Catalina users, the path to the user folder has changed and can now be found at:
~/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2021/

The filters default to an attribute value of 15 as per the built-in filters in FM2020. If this is too high and no players are found, you can decrement the values until you start to find players. Alternatively, you can reduce the number of matches required. It is also worth bearing in mind that for every role and duty, some attributes are key while others are preferable. Key attributes are highlighted as green in the player profile, preferable ones blue. You can reduce the values of preferable ones slightly to try and identify more players.

    Sorry, haven't been monitoring this. I guess things changed after an update, but the filters are now in the game by default (Player Search/Attributes/Pick/Highlight Key Attributes for Role).

    They were missing from the beta, hence making these.

    Sorry, I'm french
    I don't understand the abbreviations for filters messages

    Even putting the game in English it doesn't match

    Someone to tell me which post (in English) corresponds to the abbreviations of the filter?

    I manage to translate the post abbreviations in the game but not that of the filter which are different

    thank you

    The staff filters have a problem. When you select the role it only select the atributes for the role but don't select the role
