Football Manager 2021 gives players a lot of customization options. However, the game doesn’t have everything partly due to licensing issues and players have to use free custom skins and more to the game. In this Football Manager 2021 Guide, I will help players with how to install skins and where they can find them.


Football Manager 2021 Skins

First, players need to download the desired skin which can be found at FM Scout and FM Base. Here, the community uploads a lot of skins for the players to use. Once you have found the skin you like, download it.

Now it’s time to import the skin you just downloaded to Football Manager 2021. Go to the Documents folder and navigate to Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2021. Here will be a Skins folder. Cut and paste the files you downloaded to the Skins folder.

Make sure you are not pasting the entire zip file. If the download is a zip file then extract the files first and then cut and paste them into the Skins folder.


Launch Football Manager 2021 and load your save. Click on the FM button located at the top right and scroll down to Preferences and click it. A window will open, click Advanced and use the drop-down menu to get to Interface. The skins options will be right in front of you. To the right will be a drop-down list, use it and all of the available skins will be listed here including the ones you just imported.

After that, check the “Reload skin when confirming changes in Preferences” and uncheck “Use caching to decrease page loading times” and click confirm. This will load the new skin.
