Copy the . fmf file to your 'editor data' folder, and then run football manager. Before you start a new game, you can select which editor data files to enable. From there, select the file you copied into the editor data folder, and make sure it is the only file selected, and then start the game.

Once you've downloaded a Football Manager Database and extracted it you should be left with either a single folder or a single file named either .fmf or .xml on your computer. You're going to need to move these downloaded files into a special location where Football Manager can find it.

You will need to copy the downloaded files to this location:

/Users//Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2022/editor data

You may find it difficult to find this exact location, to make it easier, use the following instructions:

a) Open Finder

b) Click “Go” from the menubar and select “Go to Folder” (alternatively press Shift+CMD+G)

c) Copy in the following: ~/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/

d) Open the “Football Manager 2022” folder

e) Open the “editor data” folder (or created it if it doesn't exist)

f) Move the downloaded files into the ”editor data" folder

Simply move the downloaded files to the following location:

Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2022/editor data

If you don't have a “editor data” folder simply create it 🙂

If you have a file that ends in .zip, .rar or .7z then you'll need to extract the files before installing them. These files are called “archives” and are a way to compress files or folders into a single file for easier downloading but you'll need to open them and get the contents of them before installing.

DO NOT put zip, rar or 7z files in your “editor data” folder, it won't work.

Extract the files first and then put the extracted files into your “editor data” folder. If you're not sure how to extract them, look at these guides for windows or for mac.

Now in order to use your downloaded files you'll have to start a new FM Save. Open up FM and click “Start a new game”.

In the top right you should see a dropdown box labelled something like 21.4.0 or 22.0.0 depending on what game version you're using.

Click this and you should see a pop up showing all the “fmf” and “xml” files you just put in your “editor data” folder.

Make sure they're all ticked and then click “confirm”

  • In the Android apps list on your Android device find "My Files" or "File manager" app and tap to start it.
  • Tap on "Downloads" folder inside the app.
  • You should see your downloaded FMF file in that folder.
  • Tap on the file.
