News - Football Manager 2018 Summer Transfer Update
While World Cup 2018 is righteously monopolizing the interest of every football fan around the globe, there's also a clear runner up; summer transfers! And once the World Cup comes to an end, interest will shift entirely to transfer deals.

As you know, there is NO official data update by Sports Interactive for the summer transfer window. That always comes with the new game release (FM19 in this case). But naturally, you can't wait that long to manage your favorite club with the latest signings they completed.

This gap created an opportunity for pre-game editor veterans to work on unofficial data updates that people can use to reignite the itch for Football Manager while waiting for the next iteration in the series.

The question is which unofficial data update is the best. For many years we have backed pr0's data packs to be the best, as in the most detailed and consistently updated. A quality data update mainly takes a lot of time, but it also requires passion and devotion. And of course it needs to be actively supported by the FM community.

    @mrpanzer: If they are players who were transferred to Anderlecht this summer, the transfer update itself doesn't place them in first team or U19. Depending on their reputation, the game will move them to the appropriate team. Basically, if their rep is too low to be on par with the players who are part of the first team, it will place them in U19. But of course, if you're managing Anderlecht, you can move them yourself.

    @oswalddeandrade: Not sure how this is related to FMTU really. The transfer update doesn't affect nationality or anything else besides transfers (and contracts).

    hello , just used the transferupdate , what's not updated in my team Anderlecht is that 2 players who play in the first team are still in the U19....Saelemaekers and Bornauw , probably this can't fixed with this update?

    Great job thing nikola milenkovic(Fiorentina) is marked as non european player not registrable because of dusan vlahovic and vitor hugo automaticaly occupy the place...maybe because vlahovic is arrived during the winter window market 1\1\2017 while milenkovic was already in Fiorentina....

    Absolutely brilliants! A fantastic way for the community to help out two hard-working content creators to pump out what is already the best possible unofficial database update in the world! While I don't use any kind of editor data myself, this is a magnificent project. Well done to all!
