- Every donation is appreciated for this long term and carefully compiled project -
This custom database project started about a year ago when Azzam started his long term research
to create many legendary players from scratch as real as possible.
With this extra data-set the most legendary players from football history will appear
in your Football Manager game.
At the start all legendary players will play for the club where their career started.
Also career wishes have been added, so that the players can end up at the club where they became a true legend.
Example > Diego Maradona
Starts his career in Argentina while playing for Argentinos Juniors.
He wishes to play for Napoli in the future.
There are over 700 legendary players included.
Maradona, Pelé, Cruyff, Ronaldo, Schumacher, Van Basten, Romario, Platini and Thierry Henry
are a few of many legends that will appear in your game!
More legendary players will follow up in the upcoming updates for this 'Legends project'!
Around 700 legends are equipped with a unique DF11 face so far.
More faces will follow up in the upcoming updates for this 'Legends project'.
No. Just like any other custom database update, you will have to start a new savegame
every time you have add a new (updated) database to your FM game.
Azzam has created a simple logical link to the year of born.
Players who were born in 1940s will start the game at the age of 22. (For example Pele and Cruyff)
Players who were born in 1950s will start the game at the age of 21. (For example Zico and Platini)
Players who were born in 1970s will start the game at the age of 19. (For example Ronaldo and Zidane)
Players who were born in 1980s will start the game at the age of 18. (For example Messi and CR7)
The database contains even players who are born in 1880.
Now you can do the math.
You can contact the author in case you experience any issues related to these files.
Updates have been planned for expanding this dataset further with even more legendary players (including faces).
A new fully updated LOTBG version will become available every month.
Remove the old files first before installing the new LOTBG pack!
