Football Manager 2018 Views & Filters - Jamie's Essential Football Manager 2018 Filters
This is my personal collection of custom filters for literally ALL player roles and also staff jobs, which has been most useful to me in previous Football Manager versions.

I have created custom filters for all Football Manager 2018 player roles:

For example, here's the Enganche filter:

I have also created custom filters for all Football Manager 2018 staff jobs:

This file is an exclusive!

How to use my custom filters in FM18

  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 .pft files to your filters folder:
    \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2018\filters\

  3. Run Football Manager 2018 and import each custom filter in the appropriate screen.

    can you make those...

    Ever since the game went from beta to released version I haven't been able to import these filter files. If I save my own filters either single file or export pack with multiple filters a file with the extension .fmf is created, but the files from these packs are .pft? any suggestions?

    Hey mate, great filters. really helpful. Thank you. Non of the youth staff filters are there. If you can put them in that would be awesome. Again your efforts are appreciated.

    Thanks mate. Download works great, filters are great and the import is great. I however have a problem, when i have imported the filter, the game doesn't save them. Can it be a beta problem or am i doing something wrong?
