#FM17 | Player & Staff Role Search Filter

There it is! Same like in previous years I made Playr & Staff Role Search Filter for new Football Manager game. I made it mainly for myself but I decided to share it with you again. 

Both of these two filters were downloaded more than 20K during FM16 time as it was shared also via fmscout.com.


Filters contain all Player and Staff Roles including key attributes and positions. There are some new staff roles in Football Manager 2017 like Sport Scientist or Data Analyst and more.

If you click on each role in staff or player you can see the key attributes highlighted but it not happen when you click on new roles so I made filter just only for position not with key attributes.

Neither Sport Scientis nor Data Analyst have any required attributes. Their duties are fulfilled through their presence alone.

Filters are very easy to install. Download the file -> just drop that file into the following location: C:\User\Name\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\filters. Create the folder “filters” if it doesn’t exist.

When you load up Football Manager 2017 go to the “Scouting” screen -> “Player search” and click “filter” on the right. Then “manage filters” -> “import”.

Then select the file. You should be able to select filter and see a list of every player roles. All conditions starts at 12 and with Realistic transfers option is ticked. You can easily change this in Show Filters pop-up window.

If you will have any questions about this or some issues, let me know.

Thanks for the support, @KeysiRensie.
