Welcome to New Star Manager: The immersive all-new game from Simon Read, creator of the BAFTA Award-winning New Star Soccer series.

Take control of New Star FC – a beleaguered soccer club which needs your management skills and instincts to unlock the team’s potential and make it to the top of the game.

This is soccer management like you’ve never experienced it - Be more than just a player, be the head, the heart, and backbone of New Star FC. Be the Manager.

Take ownership of every aspect of New Star FC, from constructing vital club facilities and managing the players’ training regimes to choosing the perfect sponsor and hiring or firing the backroom staff!

Use every member of your team to set up and score pivotal goals with on-pitch gameplay, using innovative mouse based controls.

Build your dream squad, choose your winning formation, make tactical substitutions, and even step into the locker room for some half-time motivation!

Handle volatile players and get their mind back in the game by monitoring their concerns, outbursts, and quirks. Keep the board off your back, navigate the hostile waters of the sporting press, and make sure the fans keep believing... while keeping a careful eye on the club’s finances!

Dive into realistic simulations of the world’s biggest leagues and cup competitions!

Experience the newest instalment of the New Star series, whose pick-up-and-play sports titles have already been enjoyed by over 30 million players!

The follow-up to New Star Soccer is better on Switch, but it's '15 more expensive.

It's not at its absolute best on Switch, but New Star Manager still provides the deeply tactile Yang to Football Manager 2019 Touch's stat-heavy Ying. It plays a more intuitive and portable game of tactical footy than its illustrious rival, and it also packs a lot more depth than its basic presentation might suggest.

New Star Manager ups the ante as you step up from footballer to football manager. The football remains great fun but the rest will work for some and not others. The PlayStation version looks, sounds and runs fine but the Switch's stick and touch screen combo would be preferred.
