    Luke,

    Thank you so much for creating this.

    Just wondering if this can be applied to Football Manager Touch? (I am using an iPad).
    If not, is there any other way to fix the teams and names for FMT?

    Thanks 🙂

      I honestly don’t know your answer: I think no, but get I touch with the Vibe Community! They specialise in touch.

      Sorry, it’s working. Haha great. For those who’re not able to find the Steam folder, use below steps.

      Click Go > Press Alt > Click Library > Application support > Steam > steamapps > common > football manager 2017 > data > db

      And i changed to all folder, (1700, 1701 and 1710) then it works.
