Product Description

Football Manager 2013 does not officially launch until November 2nd.

Football Manager. Always.

Football Manager is the best-selling, most realistic football management series ever made. Football Manager 2013 celebrates 20 years of games from the people at Sports Interactive by introducing an array of new features.

This year’s version allows you to take control of any club in more than 50 nations across the world and includes all of Europe’s biggest leagues as well as database of over 500,000 real-world players and staff.

As well as some landmark new features in the Career Mode, there are now new ways to enjoy your Football Manager experience.


Match Engine
The 3D match engine has seen huge improvements this year. Everything on the pitch looks more realistic; from the stadiums, the players’ movement, intelligence, and the way the ball moves through the air.

We’ve also introduced hundreds of new animations to make the game feel more realistic and we’ve made the whole experience more televisual by introducing new camera angles and showing the kick-off and final whistle.

Manager Roles
Another notable difference is the significant restructure of the manager’s staff and a revamp of their roles. The most obvious is that we’ve introduced the position of Director of Football into the game for the first time, which will allow managers to pass on some of their workload, such as contract negotiations, if they choose to.

In addition to this, we’ve also increased the number of specialist coaching roles within the game and given the manager greater flexibility to choose which coaches offer advice and when. The manager can also choose to complain about boardroom interference – although that particular option should probably be used sparingly.

And much more…
A brand new training system, improved international management, tones in press conferences & a new user interface.


Classic and Challenge Modes
Football Manager Classic is a less time-consuming way to enjoy Football Manager. The essence of the game is exactly the same – the manager still takes charge of a squad of players and competes at whatever level he or she chooses – but they will now find that a number of their responsibilities have either been taken over by their support staff or have disappeared completely.

For example, while the player still takes charge of training in FMC, this is carried out at a 'full team' level only – there's no individual player training. And when it gets to matches themselves, there are no team talks or opposition reports... you just go straight to a game using the same 3D match engine as Career Mode. The games are played out in a quicker 'highlights only' fashion, but you can even speed this up by going straight to ‘Instant Result’.

Players who opt for Football Manager Classic will also find that they have a couple of further options in terms of how they play the game; they can either play a full open-ended ‘Career’ or they can choose to play in the new ‘Challenge’ mode.

In Challenge mode they’ll find themselves in a particular situation which will test their management skills over a shorter game time – usually half a season. Can you win a trophy with a team consisting almost entirely of kids? Or could you guide your club to safety despite being bottom of the table at Xmas?

We first introduced Challenge Mode in Football Manager Handheld 2012 and it proved to be so popular that we’ve decided to include it in FMC too.

The game will come with four free-to-play challenges, each of which feeds in to a global leaderboard.

Network Play
The brand new Network Play is fully integrated with Steam’s network functionality which means that players should be able to set up and enjoy games against their friends far more easily than before. The Network Mode also allows people to set-up special one-off leagues and cups and to import their team from their career mode, so you can now end any debate about whose FM team is better.

The deeper integration with Steam will also allow us to manage worldwide leaderboards, so, for the first time you’ll really know how good a manager you are.

Plus over 900 other new features!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun for strategy types - try this download method November 7, 2012
This is an incredibly deep football/soccer simulation. If you're into the front office side of sports, I'd give this one a shot. I was able to learn a whole lot about the game playing this, and had a great time with the strategy involved in managing a team.

I've read quite a few reviews for other game downloads here on Amazon that said the download experience was a bit of a pain. If you'd like to download it directly from Steam after purchasing from Amazon, try this:

1. When you first purchase the game on Amazon, if it prompts you to download it, decline. All you will need from Amazon is the Product Code generated when you purchase the game.
2. I already had an existing Steam account, so if you don't, create one first and download the client software from their site. You will need a Steam account regardless of how you choose to install this product.
3. Go to the "Your Games and Software Library" page of the "My Account" section in your Amazon account.
4. Copy the "Product Code" listed under your game.
5. Open up Steam, and click "Add a Game".
6. Choose "Activate a Product on Steam".
7. You will need to click though a couple of prompts, then will be asked for the Product Code. Paste the code your copied from Amazon in step 4.
8. This game will then be added to your Steam Library, and you can download and play the game.

I've done this for quite a few games over the years and have had no problems whatsoever. Enjoy the game!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another amazing Football Manager December 5, 2012
By Gustavo
Verified Purchase
Well it's one of my favourite games all time, and this year is superb.
The players skills analysis is getting better and better, and as usual they allways predict almost exactly how a player will develop.
The management of the club is getting really close to the reality , for example, FcPorto manager talks to you and say "We want offensive and possessive football" which is the gamestyle of the team, and you get to see what people in clubs actually do by playing a game.
The interactions with the staff,directors,players and journalist is much better then last year and a lot less buggy.
The graphics are getting better as welll, so to sum it all up, imagine 12 but more real!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent simulator! October 16, 2013
Verified Purchase
You don't have to be into soccer to enjoy this one (although it does help). Football Manager focuses on the managerial aspects of what soccer is like in the international community. This is attractive to people who do not want to play individual soccer games (like in FIFA), that slow down the entire experience. Football Manager focuses on the big picture and as a result is an excellent game!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Management Game June 25, 2013

It's a challenging game, especially if you start out trying to work your way up from the lower leagues. However, it is an excellent game for management and sports strategy buffs.

Great new engine with added realism. This game now requires players to constantly tweak or change tactics instead of just sticking to one. Best Football Manager yet!!
