*For India, I have created the entire league system from scratch meaning I’ve removed all of the default database changes created by Sports Interactive.
Why are there two files for North Korea?
The only current information known from North Korea is that the league is playing in the current season. However, there is no information on which teams are participating, etc. Therefore, it was decided to include two files in the pack. One file without any league and one file with a “fantasy league” (the latest information). In this way, everyone can decide for themselves which variant to use.
ONLY ONE OF THE TWO FILES SHOULD BE LOADED!
OCEANIA (OFC) 15/15 Nations (Version 2.5)

*The file of SI was revised.
** – Here the 1st league had to be created as well because you cannot edit it due to an error of SI
*** Had to ban B-clubs from the 2nd league due to issues with the format of the league
Other Features & Changes to Playable Nations
To make the playing experience as realistic as possible, all nations have been created using the advanced editor. The following changes have been made to improve the realism:
Realism is written in capital letters for me, because without realism the fun of the game suffers extremely and the FM is supposed to be fun.
In order to guarantee realism, all files have been and will be created in the extended rules of the editor (well, the basic rules can’t do anything either ;D) and mainly contain changes in the following areas:
- Squad registration rules (foreigner rules, age restrictions).
- Realistic league formats, for example Apertura/Clausura and whatever else the football associations have come up with.
- Realistic TV money*
- Realistic prize money**
- VAR (Video Assistant Referee) added
- New clubs – if the researchers have messed up again
- TV broadcasts added
- Added academy leagues in countries where it is necessary (mainly Africa and Asia)
* Real values when sources are available. Calculated values according to the average expenditure of a nation (wages etc.) to ensure that clubs are represented as realistically as possible financially.
** Real values when sources are available. Calculated similarly to TV money to ensure balance.
All these changes are crucial to guarantee an overall balance in your save game. You can learn more about how to improve the realism in Football Manager by setting up a balanced save game with Daveincid’s tips provided here.
The result is a world leagues megapack that guarantees the most realistic experience in Football Manager ever!

How to unlock the full Japanese J-League Pyramid in Football Manager 2023?
