Get to know the potential wonderkids of Football Manager 2025 as we introduce the FM24 NextGen Wonderkids Database. Here’s your chance to meet some of the future wonderkids and talents that are NOT included in Football Manager 2024 by default.

To continue our tradition and personal enjoyment of scouring the world for wonderkids and talents I’m proud to announce the Fotball Manager 2024 NextGen Wonderkids Database. For over 7 years I’ve had the pleasure to create a youth talent database for Football Manager that continues our attention on the best young talents in world football. This year, we have joined forces with fellow Norwegian Football Manager blogger FM Veteran to bring you an even BIGGER, BETTER and more IMMERSIVE talents database.

Experience the FM24 NextGen Wonderkids Database by Passion4FM & FM Veteran and discover the potential wonderkids and talents of Football Manager 2025 ‘before’ anyone else!

About FM24 NextGen Wonderkids Database feat. the best young talents around the world.

The FM24 NextGen Wonderkids database let you experience the best young talents around the world that are NOT included in Football Manager 2024 as they were either too young at the point of FM24 release or for any reasons have not been added to the latest 24.2 database.

Since December 2023, I’ve have spent hours adding the next generation of football talents into Football Manager 2024. I have focused my attention of adding the most promising Under-16 talents from the top 10 nations across the globe, as well as all those young players that have come under the spotlight by being called up to represent the Under-17, U16 or U15 national team the past year.

The first edition of the FM24 NextGen Wonderkids Database lets you find nearly 100 Under-16 wonderkids and young talents born after 01.09.2007. Last year, the database finished with over 400 players, and we aim to make the FM24 edition more immersive than ever!

To give you the best possibilities to develop the next superstars in Football Manager we have worked hard to include all the most promising talents of some of the best Youth Academies in European football.

You’ll get nearly full Under-16 and Under-17 squads of Barcelona, Ajax, Manchester United, Man City, Paris SG, AC Milan and Bayern Münich.

On top of that, it includes all Under-17 & Under-16 internationals of these nations and/ or national teams [currently WIP]:

How to Download #NextGen24?

For Football Manager 2024, we have merged everything into one database. So instead of importing all the individual files for each nation, and or region, as you had to for FM23 you can simply load the FM24 NextGen Wonderkids file.

The process to use the database is the same as before. Simply follow this step by step guide, which we initially made for FM23.

Step 1:

Download the file and use a tool such as 7-Zip or WinRar to extract its content.

  • 1. Import the file to:
    • PC: This Computer/Your Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2024 > editor data
    • MAC*: Users/YOUR Mac USERNAME/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2024 > Editor Data

NB! This folder is hidden by default. Please follow these instructions to locate your Football Manager 2024 Documents*.

Loading the files of FM23 Nextgen wonderkids database
  • 2. Quit and Re-start Football Manager if you’re playing it
  • 3. Start a NEW Save
  • 4. Locate ‘Database’ – Click on the down menu 24.X Update
  • 5. View under Editor Data Files
    • Select either single nations or all files labelled as e.g. ‘FM24 NextGen Wonderkids Database by Passion4FM’
    • Un-tick any files that may conflict that imports similar players
  • 6. Click Confirm
  • Embark on a new FM24 youth development project!

Didn’t find a player?

Have you come across a player that’s not included in Football Manager 2023 but you want to see added? Do you miss a particular youngster that you want to see in the next update of #NextGen23?

Help us to enhance the database with even more youth talents by recommending youth players (born between 2007 and 2009) to extend on the number of talents within the FM23 NextGen Wonderkids database, or any future editions of NextGen Database.

  1. Hi Luka Petrovic the striker from AIK has been transfered to Real Sociedad, Transfermarkt is not updated though for some reason.
    I can also help with som other swedish talents if its interesting.

    Nice work :)

  2. Hey, there's an issue with the file.

    First of all, the original Estevao from Palmeiras as been replaced by a new one.

    Then there are two Guilherme Rucks: "Guilherme Ruc" and "Guilherme Ruck".

    This kinda messed my save file.

    • That's terrible news! If so, I must have messed up the entire file due to the error with Estevao. I don't know how I will sort it… will see if I can find a solution. The Ruck error is easy to fix… Leet me get into the thinking box! Really sorry about this issue!

    • I have managed to sort the errors and restored the original Estevao in FM24 despite my created player had a specific personality and a slightly better reputation. Potential ability range was actually similar but in the original version none of his player attributes are set.. while I had given them a specific value according to my subjective opinion according to analysis of the player. So he CAN'T have ruined your game.. if you think so, I wonder how?!

      • Appreciate the quick response.

        Don't worry about it, it was just me being fussy about original player ID's. I'd suggest you apply your edits on the original Estevao. What had you edited specifically? Do you think he's gonna be big irl in the future?

        • The differences in CA/PA was minimal between my edits and the Estevão version created by SI. However, with low reputation, clubs will not pick him up or become aware of him that easily. And, with 0 in almost every attributes his style of play will not be as accurate as his abilities will vary from save to save. That's what I tried to make more realistic with my edits. We are looking at the new Endrick so I'm sure he will be significantly upgraded for the Winter patch. Perhaps not in terms of PA, but to fix all those 0 in player attributes.

    • I'm sorry for the wait! Just been a lot of things lately. I have a few things on the to-do list. I have people asking daily for when my Tiki-Taka tactic is coming, then a few asking for the Training Schedules Megapack… Normally I've spent time in the weekends for the Nextgen database but since FM23 release, lots of things have happened each weekend. I wish to have version 1 out by Christmas, but who knows right now if I manage it.

  3. Hello ! I've downloaded this datebase and wanted to compare players stats with the same players, but in fm23 and I found that the ratings for example -Miretti in FM 22 is different to FM 23 or someone else ? How can I have the same rating stats of fm23 in fm 22 ,can someone help me ? Antonio Silsva is another prodigy that have worse stats in fm 22 than fm23. I have downloaded the fm 23 datebase i tried it in fm 22 ,but it didnt't work, the players still had different ratings

    • Hi, this database is made for FM22. This means that it will use the FM22 database – meaning all players upgraded to FM23 will have different values than what they actual has in FM23. I will begin the work on the FM23 version within the coming weeks. Just very busy these days with Christmas coming up and all.
