Football Manager 2012: Swindon Town Download

Football Manager 2012 has been released today.

Some of you may know that I’m the Swindon researcher so if you spot any issues with the data then I’d welcome your constructive comments.

In the meantime I’ve noticed several minor issues with the Swindon Town data which I’ve corrected for you in this handy little patch. Also included are various STFC media add-ons.

Follow the instructions below to activate this edit when you start a new game.

Download STFC v 1.1


  1. Extract the .xml file “ STFC v1.1” to the Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2012\editor data folder in your My Documents (PC) / Documents (MAC) folder. If there is no ‘editor data’ folder then please create one and extract the .xml file into it.
  2. Load FM2012
  3. Click ‘Start A New Game’
  4. In the dialog window that pops up, TICK the change box.
  5. Select the LATEST file ( STFC v1.1) in the list, if it doesn’t appear already.
  6. Then start a new game as normal, selecting FM2012 default database.
