Fix Fake Competition and Player Names in Football Manager 2017

No different than the past releases of Football Manager, Football Manager 2017 will also have censored some of the league, competition, player and club names. Here's a quick and easy way to fix this minor problem.

Fake competition and player names that appear in FM17 is due to legal rights. Sports Interactive are doing their best to secure as many license possible for each FM edition, but some FA’s simply don’t provide them with the legal rights.

And this is where we get in. In just a few easy steps, you’ll have all the real competition and player names. Follow the steps provided below, start a new game and see the difference.

Just to mention that this fix will work both with saved games as well as the new ones. Also, to get this fix to work you must exit your FM17 game before you do the following steps.


Step one, delete everything in the 'all' folder

Windows users go to:
Program Files (x86) \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ football manager 2017 \ data \ db \ 17xx \ lnc \ all

Mac users go to:
[username] > library > Application support > Steam > steamapps >common > football manager 2017 > data > db > 17xx > lnc > all
  • [message]
    • ## fa-info-circle## 17xx are FM17 databases
      • Every time new update comes out there will be a new database folder, 1700, 1701, 1702 etc. You have to delete each time the 'all' folder from it and repeat step three from this guide.

Step two, download the fix

Step three, apply the fix

Extract the .rar file with WinRAR, and move the files to:

Windows users move file to:
Program Files (x86) \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ football manager 2017 \ data \ db \ 17xx \ lnc \ all

Mac users move file to:
[username] > library > Application support > Steam > steamapps >common > football manager 2017 > data > db > 17xx > lnc > all


Step four, start FM17

Start your Football Manager 2017 save or new game and check if your fake player, competition and club names have changed.

Also, do not worry if you don't see national team player names changed straight away, it can take for it to work and will be usually visible when the national squad is selected for a match.
