Football Manager 2021 Real Name Fix | FM21

Football Manager 2021 Real Name Fix  FM21

You'll need to apply the Football Manager 2021 Real Name Fix to have real competition, club, nation and player names in FM21.


You may have noticed that some of the competition and player names that you see in FM 2021 are fake, this is due to legal and copyright issues that Sports Interactive faces with these clubs and competitions.

Sports Interactive are doing their best to secure as many licenses possible for each Football Manager edition, but some FA’s just don’t provide them with the legal rights and this is where the FM21 real name fix kicks in.

In just a few easy steps, you’ll have all the real competition and player names showing in your game.

Football Manager 2021 Real Names Fix - Installation


First, you must exit your FM 2021 and also exit Steam before proceeding any further with this installation guide.

1) Delete everything in the 'all' folder


To locate the 'all' folder on your operating system go to the following path;

Windows users go to:
Program Files (x86) \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ football manager 2021 \ data \ database \ db \ 21xx \ lnc \ all

Mac users go to:
[username] > library > Application support > Steam > steamapps >common > football manager 2021 > data > database > db > 21xx > lnc > all

21xx is the database number. This can be 2100, 2110, 2120, 2130, 2140. You need to repeat this step every time a new database gets released.

  • [message]
    • Read if you're a Mac OS user.
      • You can find these folders by clicking, in the Finder, the Go menu in the menu bar, then choose Go to Folder and type the folder path name (obviously inserting your username), then click Go.

        You can get to the Library folder by simply selecting Go from the top bar and holding "alt" key - The Library folder suddenly appears on the drop-down.

2) Enable real Brazilian team names and Juventus FC instead of Zebre


Again you'll have to delete files to unlock these.

Windows users go to:
Program Files (x86) \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ football manager 2021 \ data \ database \ db \ 21xx \ > dbc > permanent

Mac users go to:
[username] > library > Application support > Steam > steamapps >common > football manager 2021 > data > database > db > 21xx > dbc > permanent

21xx is the database number. This can be 2100, 2110, 2120, 2130, 2140. You need to repeat this step every time a new database gets released.

Once you're at this folder delete the following files;

  • brazil_kits.dbc
  • forbidden names.dbc
  • Licensing2.dbc
  • Licensing2_chn.dbc
  • fake.edt
  • zebra award.dbc
  • zebra turin fake staff.dbc
  • zebra turin new.dbc

3) Download the FM21 Real Name Fix




4) Apply FM 2021 Real Name Fix


Now copy and paste the real name fix file that you've downloaded to this path:

Windows users move the files to:
Program Files (x86) \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ football manager 2021 \ data \ database \ db \ 21xx \ lnc \ all

Mac users move the files to:
[username] > library > Application support > Steam > steamapps >common > football manager 2021 > data > database > db > 21xx > lnc > all

21xx is the database number. This can be 2101, 2110, 2120, 2130, 2140. You need to repeat this step every time a new database gets released.

5) Start Football Manager 2021


Start your Football Manager 2021 save or start a 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 team is selected for a match.

  • [message]
    • IMPORTANT
      • Every time new update comes out for FM21 there will be a new database folder such as; 2100, 2101, 2110, 2120, 2130, 2140. You will need to repeat all the steps from this guide when that happens in order to have real names in your game.

        This is due to the fact that some files which are removed when installing this file are automatically re-installed by Steam when official patches come out.

FAQ about the FM 2021 Real Name Fix


Do I have to start my game all over again?

No, Football Manager 2021 real name fix will work with your current save game, although Brazilian clubs will still, unfortunately, have only three letters. To have real club names in Brazil, you will have to start a new career game.

What names are corrected?

The real name fix changes the instances of fake names in Football Manager 2021 to the proper, real-life names for awards, cities, stadiums and competitions, in cases where the actual name is not licensed, such as Champions League, Europa League and Premier League displaying instead of EURO Cup, EURO Vase and Premier Division respectively. 

It will also fix the fact that the German and Japanese National teams don't call up real players and that the Bayern Munich and Borussia Mönchengladbach managers have fake names. These are all fully save-game compatible.
