FM 2020 Fantasy Scenarios - 1999-2000 Season Throwback Database for FM20
In this retro database for Football Manager 2020, experience a flavour of what THE FM RETRO GAMER and THE FM RETRO GROUP have to offer – you might see some familiar faces from 2020 as well!

Travel back to the end of the last century before mobile phones and the internet grew into being what it is now. In this Football Manager 2020 database, play with some classic teams, remember some old school managers, and find those wonderkids from yesteryear.

All our information is collecting from Championship Manager 3, the game that officially launched this season, so we thought to recreate this.

We have a growing team of editors, graphic designers, picture collectors and skin makers, that are part of our project. If you feel you could contribute something towards our project or future work – we would love to hear from you. Reach out!

Enjoy the 1999-2000 database for FM20.

    Not the case at all Mauve. The comment is very distasteful and slanders beyond belief.

    I am glad so many people enjoy this database and are still accessing it today.

    Never trust "theFMretrogroup", he's a thief who made money on everyone and did nothing. At the end he banned the whole group and is selling this database. All the bad luck to you idiot.

    Is the editor data available for this save?

    Good throwback, big problem that there is no Juninho in the game at all!!

    could also do with some accurate facepacks.

    Hi. France Ligue 1 is full of mistakes. AJ Auxerre (Djibril Cisse is a DC, Phillippe Mexes is a MC, Stephane Guivarc'h is a GK), Olympique Lyonnais (Gregory Coupet DL, Sonny Anderson is a AMR , Tony Vairelles is a MC). This are just a few exemples. All of Auxerre player have their nationality of English, an error that i observed at multiple clubs in France.

    Best TB database!
    Great job!
    Several players are missing, primarily from France and Portugal and, for example, Nemanja Vidic, but the introduction of real players over the years and budgets and transfers have been brilliantly done!
    As far as I understood all the finances are divided by 3 and there are some really realistic figures from that period
