Walk down the tunnel to a living, breathing football world with you at the very heart of it. Around here, your opinion matters! This is a world that rewards planning and knowledge but, unlike other games, there’s no pre-defined ending or script to follow – just endless possibilities and opportunities. Every club has a story to tell and it’s down to you to create it. They say football is a game of dreams. Well, managers are a special breed of dreamers. They don’t see problems, only opportunities: the chance to prove themselves against the best in the world, to develop and instil a new footballing philosophy, to nurture talent through the ranks, to lift the club to greater heights and end the wait for silverware.

Nurture your young stars from the moment they arrive at your club and through the youth ranks until they’re ready for first-team action. CLUB VISION Develop a culture, work with the board to achieve ongoing objectives and plot a course for your club to progress in seasons to come. Club vision goes far beyond the boardroom; impacting on transfers, playing style and competition expectations as you look to strengthen your club’s identity and meet the multi-year milestones. PLAYING TIME PATHWAY A whole new way to define a player’s standing in your squad. Build in current and future playing time across the length of a contract, defining a clear pathway from Fringe Player to Star Player and everything in between. BACKROOM STAFF New roles, advice and interaction make your staff more involved and important than ever. More collaboration across more areas brings the game closer to the structure of a real-life backroom team. GRAPHIC IMPROVEMENTS Redesigned player and manager models, improved lighting and overhauled pitch visuals combine to create the most realistic and best-looking match experience to date.
