Important notes:
  • All tournaments have realistic cash prizes for the best places;
  • All tournaments was made as official competitions to make the contest more realistic and competitive;
  • The tournaments match dates are adjusted to the club schedules, so if a club is invited to several pre-season tournaments in a season, this club will play some matches in a very short time (but this is a difficult situation);
  • The pack also contains the graphics to illustrate the tournaments (logos and trophies);
  • Some tournaments may have history errors (duplicate or missing past editions), despite all historical have been properly recorded in the editor. This only happens in a few saves, and we still don't know why. However this issue don't affect the update functionality.

How to install pre-season tournaments in FM17

  1. Extract the files using 7-zip or some similar program.
  2. Move the folders according to these guidelines:
  3. * "editor data" files >> Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\editor data
    * "graphics\competitions\normal" files >> Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\graphics\logos\competitions\normal
    * "graphics\competitions\small" files >> Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\graphics\logos\competitions\small
    * "graphics\pictures\trophies" files >> Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\graphics\pictures\trophies
  4. Open FM and start a new game by selecting the tournaments you want to play in the save.

Depending on the amount of updates selected in the save, some of tournaments may have IDs modified by the game. To check this, follow these steps:
  1. Go to "Preferences >> Interface", and press "Show screen IDs in title bar to assist skinning" option;
  2. Search the friendly tournaments and make sure the IDs were kept;
  3. If any ID has changed, simply go to the "graphics" folder and rename manually the name of logos and trophy files to the correct ID; in this case you also need to change the corresponding line in the config file.
  4. Reload the skin and enjoy!

    Can somebody help me with the installation? I did it exactly the way I should, but it doesn't show me the pictures of the trophies and the logos of the tournaments :/
  • Chuckobo96's avatar

    If you are making this pack for fm18, can you include the ICC too?
  • Orvalvisje's avatar

    Is this (already) available for fm2018. And if so, is it easy to edit the participants? For example, where a tournament drafts 4 italian teams, can that be changed by participants of another country?
  • laulund's avatar

    Kruskay In tournaments such as the Santiago Bernabéu, which has no clear criteria to define the participants, we freely choose the countries of the teams. In this case we choose Brazil.
  • Kruskay's avatar
    Trofeo Santiago Bernabeu isn't Real Madrid against Random Serie A Brazil because they played Stade de Reims August 2k16 Galatasaray 2K15 Al Saad 2K13 Los Millonarios 2K12 Galatasaray 2K11

    sl1234 The Amsterdam Tournament is already available on the fanpage. About Latin Cup and Tournoi de Paris, we can do. Please send an inbox message on Facebook, explaining which teams you want to participate in these tournaments!
  • sl1234's avatar
    can you do tournoi de paris, coupe latine and amsterdam tournament ?
  • dkeppler's avatar
    Yes you can use normally, lee_mcyde
  • lee_mcyde's avatar
    hello - can i use this on a mac?
  • kizar's avatar
    Please don't download files below , still occurs errors, but this time some tournaments carry on in the future, some not. I will try fix it and put files tomorrow.
  • kizar's avatar
    Hi, I amended files which we have here.
    I fix history issue, deleted duplicated tournaments in different files and much more.
    Everything should work well right now but recommend use all files together.
    I did not included two tournaments Anglo Cup and Copa Chapecoense.Link below.!jVBA2BoY!qCYtZpptj5SZKUJOEoCoZg
  • kizar's avatar
    I know that, I don't have to load all of them but honestly I don't know which files making double, triple or sometimes more history.

    I think author of this file, should create one file and implement all tournament as a one file.
  • dkeppler's avatar
    kizar, I'll report your feedback to zangelmi, but we already knew there could be history errors. He is on vacation but should work on improvements soon. One short-term solution is don't load this specific tournament in your save - you don't have to use all 21 updates. Thanks!
  • kizar's avatar
    It is exactly like I said, you based on the same copy of file creating new tournament with previous created tournaments.

    You should create fresh file for every tournament loading new data in editor or creating one file for all tournaments adding up new competitions in it.

    Anyway it is great thing but you need make a update.

  • kizar's avatar
    I think the reason why you have errors is that you created for every tournament different file but based on changes done for another tournament. So sometimes you copies the same tournament many times in different files.
  • kizar's avatar
    For me unfortunately this pack is not playable. Like you mentioned many errors in history what is causing that Real Madrid won tournament over 70 times in last 25 years.
    Maybe better idea is to completely remove history of tournamets.
  • dkeppler's avatar
    Unfortunately it only works in new saves, Infiltrator
  • Infiltrator's avatar
    can we use this in a running save?
  • dkeppler's avatar
    Yes ademjh, all tournaments were made as official competitions, so the trophies are recorded in the manager and club histories
  • ademjh's avatar
    Do pre-season tournaments show on your manager history as a trophy won, as competitive competitions do?
  • DAZS8's avatar
    I have backgrounds made for these comps in my own pack on my facebook group
