Football Manager 2024: How To Add Real Kits

Last updated:

Football Manager 2024 brings Sports Interactive’s football sim monolith closer to the real game than ever before, especially when it comes to licensing. The Champions League license being in the air gives it a huge amount of gravitas and there are more licensed teams with their actual kits in FM than in any previous year. However, you’re still going to need to download and install your own Football Manager 24 kit packs.

Simply download the pack, fiddle with some files, and you’re playing with authentic kits in Football Manager 2024.
