FM 2024 Fantasy Scenarios - 1998-99 Season Throwback Database for FM24 [Save]
This database takes you back to the 1998-99 season. Relive and change the history with some of the biggest legends of all time.

Originally created for FM23 and used the brand new feature in FM24 that converts FM23 saves into usable FM24 saves.

This is the full and complete version, available as a save-game only. You can choose between 19 playable leagues in 15 nations!

Travel back in time to an era of football where some of the greatest players of all time roamed the world. This Football Manager 2024 throwback database brings back some epic teams, managers and players from around the world in the original leagues and teams from 1998/99. If you don't remember the late 90's football, this is a great and fun opportunity to learn about an epic football era.

Everything in this FM24 database has been reverted back to 1998. All the leagues are as they where back in 1998, with all the teams and players from back then. The player attributes is copied manually from the original Championship Manager 3 1998/99. So now you have the chance to manage all the legends from the late 90s, in the modern Football Manager match engine. To get the full experience please read the instructions below.

Released: 19 October 2023

I have researched for this DB for years, looking through old archives for stats, watching video material, talking to football historians. To be able to rate the player attributes as best as possible.

So jump into the FM Time-machine and travel back to 1998.
