Football Manager 2022 Skins: How to Install (Complete Guide)

Football Manager 2022

Downloading skins for Football Manager 2022 has long been a way to liven up the game on PC and Mac - here is how you can do so.

FM22, obviously, comes with its own skin, which works beautifully for most people who play the game.

However, there is also the option of downloading custom skins that alter the background you’re playing with.

There can be the option to change the colour, potentially adding a darker skin, or more neutral colours.

Also, there is the prospect of changing the way certain items in the game are viewed, such as attributes, the transfer screen, and your squad.

Some even offer an ‘Instant Result’ button, in case you don’t want to play the actual games, and would allow you to skip ahead to the full-time whistle.

For example, using the Zealand skin, which has been designed by Football Manager YouTuber Zealand Shannon, offers some remarkable changes to the look of the game.

Clicking on a player brings up a completely different look, with attributes and star ratings more prominent.

The Zealand skin also offers instant access to YouTube tutorials, switches up the scouting screen, and adds colour coding to the squad screen.

Put simply, there’s more information and it’s easier to see.

But how do you actually install the skin? Let’s take a look!
