How To Install Football Manager 2022 Kit Packs
You don’t need any modding knowledge or anything to use real kits in Football Manager 2022, just File Explorer on your PC and a kit pack.
Drag and drop your kit pack into Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2022.
Then, go into the Football Manager 2022 folder and add a new folder called graphics. The kit pack will need to be unzipped, so right click the folder, select unzip, and then drag and drop those unzipped files into the new graphics folder.
Now it’s time to go into Football Manager 2022 itself.
Either from the main menu or in a save, go to Preferences > Advanced > Interface > Skin and then tick off use caching to decrease page loading times. In addition, tick on reload skin when confirming changes in preferences just below it. Hit confirm or reload skin at the bottom.
All being well, the kits will then be loaded into your game.
Kit pack not working? Make sure you’ve unzipped the pack before adding it to the folder. Otherwise, clear your cache in preferences and then restart your game, and you should then have real kits in-game.
