FM 2023 Misc Graphics - FM 2023 Backgrounds - Stadiums Pack
This background pack was created by stevemc on SI forums and is shared here with his kind permission.

As per the last 4 years, I work on background projects, I’ve been doing this for my own personal use, but decided to share with the community a couple of years ago and will continue to do so for FM23, something I've built up over 6-7 years now and continue to improve and flesh out further with each edition of FM.

I’ve made a lot of changes for FM23, 1000’s of additions and better-quality images included, code updates, future stadiums currently being built etc and I've been working on it intensively for the last 3 months. This is definitely the BEST and most comprehensive update I’ve ever done to these packs.

All are 2560x1600 resolution, which is basically current MacBook Pro Retina size, and the quality is superb (HQ) in most instances (forgive some of the obscure people/places). They have been compressed, twice, to their smallest file size possible without loss of quality so they are easier to download.

FM23 Stadiums Pack

It currently covers 223 different countries (thousands upon thousands of stadiums covered), all playable leagues included, most deep into the lower leagues too, all over the world so it's extensive.

Stadiums in England are complete down to level 8 too (Northern Premier, Southern League, Isthmian League etc).

How to add Stadium Backgrounds to your game

1. Download the pack

2. Unzip and place here: ‎⁨

[PC] Documents⁩ ▸ ⁨Sports Interactive⁩ ▸ ⁨Football Manager 2023 ▸ ⁨graphics⁩ ▸ ⁨backgrounds⁩ ▸ ⁨stadium

[MAC] Users ▸ YOURNAME ▸Library ▸ Application Support ▸ Sports Interactive ▸ Football Manager 2023 ▸ graphics ▸ backgrounds ▸ stadium

3. Go to preferences (advanced and select interface) and ensure "Reload Skin" is ticked (you may need to clear your cache too) and click "confirm".

Please note: For these to work you'll need to use a custom or Base Skin with a transparency that supports backgrounds.

    Yep skin issue, but you can alter the transparency yourself, ask the Skin owner and they'll be able to help

    nevermind, looks like it varies from skin to skin; no problem with pack

    @TSL94 you need to edit the client object browser.xml in this location:

    /Users/NAME/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2023/skins/fm23BaseTrans/panels/client_object/client object browser.xml

    And play about with the numbers on line 30 and line 72 until you are happy with the transparency level.

    Or download my Transparent skin here:

    @IvanM80 this pack is far superior to my FM22 version, thousands of changes, additions, code changes and image upgrades so if you want the best experience for FM23, use this pack and bin last years.
  • Stam's avatar
    @IvanM: The pack is expanded by at least 200MB, so it definitely contains new backgrounds.

    Are they the same of last year or there're new stadiums backgrounds ?
