FM 2021 Fantasy Scenarios - 2001-02 Season Throwback Database for FM21 [Complete DB]
This database takes you back to the 2001-02 season. Relive and change the history with some of the biggest legends of all time.

This is the full and complete database version. You can choose between 9 playable leagues in 6 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 2021 throwback database brings back some epic teams, managers and players from around the world in the original leagues and teams from 2001/02. If you don't remember 2000's football, this is a great and fun opportunity to learn about an epic football era.

This is the 2001/02 season database. Everything in the FM21 database, has been reverted to 2001. All the leagues are as they where back in 2001, with all the teams from back then. So now you have the chance to train and coach all the legends from the beginning of the century, in the best football management simulation game ever. To get the full experience please read the instructions below.

Released: 8 April 2021

The players attributes are copied manually from Championship Manager 2001/02. I've dedicated myself to this project for the last 6 months.

So jump into the FM Time-machine and travel back to 2001.



More leagues will be added and released in later updates.
