How to Fix Fake Competition and Player Names in Football Manager 2016

Guide on how to fix fake competition and player names on Football Manager 2016.

No different than the past releases of Football Manager, Football Manager 2016 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 FM16 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 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, in order to get this fix to work you must exit your FM16 game before you do the following steps.


Step one, delete the 'all' folder

Windows users go to:
Program Files (x86) \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ football manager 2016 \ data \ db \ 16xx \ lnc \

Mac users go to:
[username] > library > Application support > Steam > steamapps >common > football manager 2016 > data > db > 16xx > lnc >
  • [message]
    • ## fa-info-circle## 16xx are FM16 databases
      • Every time new update comes out there will be a new database folder, 1600, 1601, 1602 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 all folder to:

Windows users move file to:
Program Files (x86) \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ football manager 2016 \ data \ db \ 16xx \ lnc \

Mac users move file to:
[username] > library > Application support > Steam > steamapps >common > football manager 2016 > data > db > 16xx > lnc >


Step four, start FM16

Start your Football Manager 2016 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.
