Football Manager 2023 Real Name Fix | FM23

You'll need to apply the Football Manager 2023 Real Name Fix to have real competition, club, nation and player names in FM23.


Included for Premium Members

This is a simple guide on how to change fake player names, competitions, leagues, awards, and national teams of Germany and Japan to their real names in Football Manager 2023.

Sports Interactive are doing their best to secure as many licenses as possible for each Football Manager edition, but some FAs just don't provide them with the legal rights, and this is where the FM23 real name fix comes in.

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

    • NOTE
      • It should be pointed out in case people don't know this will alter your database files and, therefore, will not allow you to score points on the leaderboard, just in case anybody cares about that sort of thing.

FM23 real names fix installation guide


First, you must exit your FM 2023 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 2023 \ data \ database \ db \ 23xx \ lnc \ all

Mac users go to:
[username] > library > Application support > Steam > steamapps >common > football manager 2023 > data > database > db > 23xx > lnc > all

23xx is the database number. This can be 2300, 2301, 2310, 2320, 2330, etc. You need to repeat this step every time a new database gets released.

    • đŸš© Mac OS users.
      • 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 the "alt" key - The Library folder suddenly appears on the drop-down.

2. Enabling real Brazilian team names


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

Windows users go to:
Program Files (x86) \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ football manager 2023 \ data \ database \ db \ 23xx \ > dbc > permanent

Mac users go to:
[username] > library > Application support > Steam > steamapps >common > football manager 2023 > data > database > db > 23xx > dbc > permanent

23xx is the database number. This can be 2300, 2301, 2310, 2320, 2330, etc. You need to repeat this step every time a new database gets released.

Once you're in this folder, delete the following files;

  • brazil_kits.dbc
  • forbidden names.dbc
  • Licensing2.dbc
  • Licensing2_chn.dbc

3. Add real name fix


Now copy and paste the FM23 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 2023 \ data \ database \ db \ 23xx \ lnc \ all

Mac users move the files to:
[username] > library > Application support > Steam > steamapps >common > football manager 2023 > data > database > db > 23xx > lnc > all

23xx is the database number. This can be 2301, 2310, 2320, 2330, or 2340. You need to repeat this step every time a new database gets released.

4. Start Football Manager 2023


Start your Football Manager 2023 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 German national team player names changed straight away; changes are usually visible when the national team is selected for a match.

  • [message]
    • IMPORTANT
      • Every time a new update comes out for FM23, there will be a new database folder such as; 2300, 2301, 2310, 2320, 2330, 2340. 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 because some files that are removed when installing this file are automatically re-installed by Steam when official patches come out.

FAQ about name fix


Do I have to start my game all over again?

No, Football Manager 2023 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 2023 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.
