News - Football Manager 2012 Winter Transfer Updates
The winter transfer window has been officially closed in most countries. The official patch that will include the mid-season data update is unlikely to be released before March kicks in.

And while we haven't created our own data update for this cause, we are glad to present you with the best unofficial data updates made around the scene.

Let's have a look at what they do and how you can apply them to your game...

The Updates

We are aware of the 3 most reputable data updates which can be found on the official SI forums and around the scene.
We will be updating this page with fresh download links as they become available.
And of course we will be adding new data updates in case we find some more quality efforts.

How to Install

First you need to choose which update you want to go with, 1 of the 3 available data updates, and download it.
* Extract it if it's a .zip or .rar archive before moving to the next step below.

→ Place the downloaded file in
My Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2012/Editor Data
For MAC users, the path is
Macintosh HD/users/{your-username}/Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2012/editor data
Create the last folder if it doesn't exist.

→ Start a new game and when the database box pops up, click the 'change' button and tick the box next to the file you have chosen to go with.

Enjoy! :)

Made an update yourself and want to see it here?

Most important requirement is to release the update free for all, so we'll only point to download links that require no registration.
