Unfortunately, the developers of Football Manager 21 have not received a license to use the official names of many clubs. Let’s try to fix it!
Here is a short instruction to fix this unfortunate flaw:
Download the next Fix. https://www.fmscout.com/a-fm21-real-names-license-fix.html
Extract the files from the archive.
Find folder 2111 for FM21. In Steam, go to Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2021\data\database\db\2111. In Epic Games, the other address is \Program Files\Epic Games\FootballManager2021\data\database\db\2111.
Open the folder Inc, then – all and delete three files – Lic_dan_swe_fra.Inc, Nleague.Inc, Fake.Inc.
Now copy or cut the files FM21 Fix by FMScout.Inc and FM21 Club Names by FMScout.Inc extracted from the archive and move to the same folder all.
Go back two steps from the folder and open the edt folder. Inside it, open the permanent folder.
Delete the file fake.edt.
Go back to the two folders again and open dbc, and then – permanent. Delete 6 files at once – Zebra award.dbc, Zebra turin fake staff.dbc, Brazil_kits.dbc, Forbidden names.dbc, Licensing2.dbc, Licensing2_chn.dbc.
Now you can safely start the FM21 and enjoy the result!
