Football Manager 2018 Facepacks - FM Scope Facepack 2018
Our scope style facepack includes over 109,300 faces of players, staff and referees for all playable leagues on Football Manager 2018.
It's a sleek and modern circular portrait style in standard size of 180x180 pixels.

It is intended for use with FM 2018, but it will work with all versions of the game from FM09 onward.

This megapack was made possible in association with the amazing people who produce the DF11 facepacks. THANKS to necjeff for granting his permission to use their top notch collection as base for this megapack.

Scope style is originally created by and its production started in February 2012. The Scope faces 2018 collection has been repacked as one megapack and first became available on November 7th, 2017.

Scope Faces Megapack 2018 base pack contains a total of 95,001 faces and takes up 4,60 GB of space.
With the monthly update packs, the collection extends to 109,393 faces and takes up 5,27 GB of space.

Redistribution Policy

You are welcome to share this pack on other sites.
All we ask is to add link credit to this official page.

Download Options

Currently the "Download Now" big red button points to a mirror. However, they have recently introduced some strange limits with downloads to certain countries, so it might not work well for everyone.

Download The Torrent File

If you're not familiar with torrents, it's best to avoid it.
But if you really want to get this pack via torrent AND help others get it as well, you need a torrent client. I personally recommend qBittorrent.

Please be kind enough to help with seeding once you download the pack, so that more people will be able to download it fast.

How to add the Scope Facepack to 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 extracted folder "Scope Faces Megapack 2018" to:
    Regular FM:
    \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2018\graphics\faces\
    FM Touch:
    \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager Touch 2018\graphics\faces\
    Create the folders "graphics" and "faces" if they don't exist.

  3. Open Football Manager 2018 (or Touch) and go to Preferences > Interface.
    Click the "Clear Cache" button. Return to the same screen.
    Enable "Reload skin when confirming changes in Preferences".
    Click the "Reload Skin" button.
    There should be a box that pops up saying 'loading image data for the new skin'. Once this is done scope facepack should be working within the game.

How to install the update packs

To install February's update, extract the .zip file you downloaded and move all files inside the "Scope Faces - 2018 February Update" folder to your "Scope Faces Megapack 2018" folder. Overwrite the files it's asking you to, including the config.xml file (especially this one).
Then clear cache and reload skin from FM18 preferences as usual.
Repeat this process for all update packs.

How to make requests

I no longer have the luxury of time to be searching and converting pictures myself. So if you have a request, please find the pictures on your own, crop them in square shape of at least 178x178 pixels and name them after their unique IDs in-game. Then send me the files either via email or via private message. The pics that pass my criteria will get included in the next update pack.


Scope style is created by Stam from but this megapack wouldn't be possible without the help from necjeff and his amazing team at DF11 Facepacks. Thank you Jeff!!

Respect to all contributors of DF11 Facepacks!

    The first update pack of the season is now available to download (you can find the link above). It's 3 times bigger (almost 10K pics) than our usual updates because we skipped 2 months. I'm really sorry it took so long. Enjoy!
  • thesharmz's avatar
    Is this face pack going to be updated? I'd really rather not use any of the others...
  • DexterHovis's avatar

    All facepacks have an individual config.xml file which links each image to the correct person in the game.

    There are two ways of combining facepacks. One way is to place each facepack in its own folder within the graphics folder. For example, your graphics folder could contain two subfolders called myfacepack and yourfacepack respectively. The game reads each folder in alphanumeric order. In this case myfacepack would be read first and all the images in that folder would be applied to all of the appropriate people. The game then reads yourfacepack and applies all the images in that folder to the appropriate people provided those individuals did not have an image in myfacepack. If you wanted yourfacepack to have priority over myfacepace you would have to rename them to, for example, Ayourfacepack and Bmyfacepack.

    If you simply combine the two facepacks by copying all the images from one to the other then one of the config.xml files will be replaced by the other and you will only see the images in the new facepack. To resolve this you need to create a new config.xml file which can be made using a utility such as fmXML which can be found here:

    The same principle applies to all graphics files.

    Hope this helps

    Hey @Stam go to say this is by far my favorite facepack for some FM's now, and other thing I have to point out is the face from "André Almeida" from Vitória de Guimarães from Portugal is the same André Almeida from Benfica, It's the only thing I have to point out, great work!
  • laulund's avatar
    nice :)
  • Stam's avatar
    @dark warrior @laulund: Updates are monthly. First one should drop during the first week of December.

    @acary08: Bigger where? Are they big enough in player comparison screen?

    @arada2013 @Kurtinho: How is that possible? The config.xml is included in the pack as normal.
  • laulund's avatar
    are you gonna make an update for this pack :)
  • dark warrior™'s avatar
    New update soon ?
  • acary08's avatar
    great facepack! Just one question, is it possible to make the player photos a bit bigger? Is there a quick fix for this?
  • Kurtinho's avatar
    @arada2013 I've been having similar issues too until I realised that, for some reason, I never downloaded the config file (xml). If you don't have one either, check out fmXML in the tools section. All you've got to do is download it, run the program and follow the instructions in the readme to create a config file for the facepack. Then do the clear cache, reload skin etc. Hope that fixes it
  • arada2013's avatar
    Dear Stam, i've already download the FM Scope Facepack 2018 and followed the instruction given above to add to my FM 2018, but when i started new game the facepack didn't worked (the players face just showing nothing)..please regards

  • Stam's avatar
    @FCFrikandel: It's the exact same pack. Will see if we can add another download mirror.

    @mirkoferrari: Just added it ;)
  • FCFrikandel's avatar
    This sucks, just went over my limit on MEGA. Now I have to wait 6 hours and 30 minutes. Is there something different beside's MEGA and Torrent? No worries if it's not :P
  • mirkoferrari's avatar
    @stam can you add this last update on the 2017 download page for those who don't want to download the entire new pack?thanks a lot
  • Stam's avatar
    @Otineb: It's the base pack of Scope 2017 + all updates + one relatively large update (5.5k faces / 254 MB) that was never published. I can add this last update on the 2017 download page for those who don't want to download the entire new pack.
  • Otineb's avatar
    Hi Stam. Is the new link updated with the all old updates? Thanks
