Get to know the potential wonderkids of Football Manager 2023 as we introduce the FM22 NextGen Database. Here’s your chance to meet some of the future wonderkids and talents that are NOT included in Football Manager 2022.
To continue our tradition and personal enjoyment of scouring the world for wonderkids and talents I’m proud to announce the Football Manager NextGen Database. For over 5 years I’ve had the pleasure to produce a youth talent database for Football Manager that continues our attention on the best young talents in world football.
The FM22 NextGen Database will be your source for wonderkids and talents that are too young to be included in Football Manager 2022.
The database is currently available only at our website, but will be released on our Steam Workshop after Christmas. The youth talent database showcases some of the potential FM22 wonderkids as well as other highly-rated talents worldwide, and will be updated until the release of Football Manager 2023.
By downloading our NextGen database below you’ll be able to pre-assess some of these player’s qualities and get a closer insight into some of the players that may be featured in our massive shortlist of FM23 wonderkids that’s coming at the Football Manager 2023 release, or during the FM23 beta period.
Despite it’s a lot of work for one person to make this database, I aim to update this Football Manager youth talents database with more players throughout 2022.
Enjoy the Passion4FM NextGen Database and discover the potential wonderkids and talents of Football Manager 2023 ‘before’ anyone else!
