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 PackIt 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).

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

Can we also use these for stadiums on the cluboverview?
