Football Manager 2018 Data Updates - RFN’s Russian Data Update for FM18
We’re back again! As with the last two years, we are coming at you with a large data update for the Russian Leagues, to enrich your experience on Football Manager 2018.

Every year when the game is released, we at RFN always pick at the little mistakes which we think are wrong. So we fix these and release them to the public to share.

With over 1800 pieces of information changed in the database, we hope that by including this file in your game, we can further add to the realism of Football Manager.

The changes include:
  • Disputed translation of names changed (e.g. Yerokhin becomes Erokhin, and Anji becomes Anzhi).
  • Amended transfer preferences to prevent too many inter-rival transfers.
  • CA/PA (current and potential ability) changes for a handful of players. Underrated and overrated players changed accordingly.
  • Tactical preferences updated to the team’s most common formation in real life (E.G Rostov will use 5-3-2 WB)
  • Adjustments to attributes.
  • Unlocking the 3rd tier of Russian football – the PFL.
  • Updated recent transfers and managerial changes.

Installation instructions

For novices to downloading a data update, you will need to add the file to the following folder. Then when you start a new game on FM18, the file will be automatically included in your save.
