I haven't had the opportunity to test this as much, so please let me know if you catch any bugs. I already saw some glitches where if you are managing a Canadian MLS club, the Canadian Champ fixtures don't show up on your schedule and you have to sim past the date to get around it. I can't seem to replicate the problem though.

I also have a version of this file where I got the force MLS teams to start 3 Canadians Can Champ rule working (instead of 'foreign players' rule where the teams end up being able to start Americans as domestic), but for some odd reason the AI would ignore that rule (even though a human player is unable to). The other solution to that is just to allow the original SI Games version of the Canadian Championship to run (I don't technically need to remake it this year since the CanPL clubs are included) - but if I did that, I am unable to swap out Ottawa Fury for 2020 (I currently replace them w/ a random Canadian USL2 team every year after 2020 and have all Ottawa players contract expire). But maybe it's no big deal avoiding simulating Ottawa's demise... what do folks think?

I'm unable to get the graphics to work. It just loads the clubs with the default fake crests etc. I'm probably putting the graphics folder in the wrong place, but I did follow the readme instructions. 

Is this right?

"Copy the graphics folder to the FM folder: Documents>Sports Interactive>Football Manager 2020"

Note: There wasn't a graphics folder there for it to replace. I just copied and pasted it there...

If windows, there won't be a graphics folder to start off with, just put it there and it should be good for that step.

 

Make sure in game you disable use caching to decrease page loading time, and just in case

and just in case, reset > clear cache

It should hopefully work after you click reload skin.

This year's has been more glitchy
