Football Manager 2024, while sadly being the last release of its kind, is nonetheless an excellent swan song for this engine before the series's overhaul next year.


If you're anything like us, since its release you've been hunting for the best bargains and experimenting with formations to bring glory to your team.

This takes a lot of time, though, so you'll want the interface to be both pleasing to the eye and easy to work with. And if you find the default skins to be a bit dull, you're not alone.

Listen to our One More Life gaming podcast - the new episode is about FM!

But fear not. The Football Manager community has provided an abundance of fan made skins that'll spruce up your time in the managing seat.

We'll take a look at what's on offer from the land of mod below - but first, let's see how to go about installing them in FM 24.

How to change FM 24 skin

Every FM24 skin is different, usually building off the standard design. Small changes can go a long way, as any Football Manager player will tell you. Even little things like changing the colour palette can do wonders.

To change the FM24 Skin, it's best to head to websites like FM Scout or FMInside to find lots of options to choose from.

Then, once your preferred interface has been downloaded, look to extract the file using WinRAR before pasting the skin into the 'Sports Interactive – Football Manager – Skins' folder.

Boot up Football Manager and activate the skin by first going to 'Preferences' then 'Advanced' and finally 'Interface'. Select your skin, reload the game and away you go.

The best FM 24 skins

Now that's clearer, we'll be listing some early Football Manager 2024 custom skins that we're particularly fond of. Of course, there's always the option to revert to the original layout if none of these take your fancy.

Stato skin (beta)

SAS24 skin

Another hugely popular interface change-up comes courtesy of the SAS24 Skin by Sasmaz SJ.

With lots of new features – like expanded player profile pages – to improve general quality of life, already fans are applauding how easy this skin makes FM24's navigation.

Dark Polish skin

Priisek Retro skin
