Football Chairman Pro Review


Posted: 3 weeks ago.

Author: @GeekDadGamer.


Football Chairman Pro is a simulation strategy game about running a football (soccer) club. The game has over two million downloads for its accurate and complex simulation of running a football club. This combines with a simple and clear interface to create a game that is both approachable and engrossing.

Starting with a small non-league team, you build a football club from the ground up (literally). The challenge is to make it through seven divisions and reach the top. As you progress you hire and fire managers, develop your stadium, negotiate transfers and contracts. At the same time you need to keep the fans and the bank manager happy.

It's an in-depth experience that models the progress of your club and the ongoing season in great detail. At the same time, it aims to be fast-paced and snappy so that the results of your decisions are quickly realised -- both the good and the bad.

It offers a new data pack each season with new clubs. It also supports all domestic and European cup competitions. Players have personalities, playing styles, and happiness and fitness.

As you reach the higher end of the league your options grow to let you manage merchandise sales, pitch condition and backroom staff, sign superstar players and boost your club's worldwide reputation. Offer win bonuses, promotion bonuses, and fine players for indiscipline.

You can always access help about the current page if you are stuck. You can reduce the speed of matches in the Preferences to further lower the pressure of the game.

Works very well with VoiceOver. For example, when you enter the Squad tab there is a list of your team and each player’s statistics. As you scroll through each player, the information is announced with all the relevant titles. From there, you can double-tap and find even more detail about the player. Don’t be afraid to double-tap on a word that seems to just be a header. Most likely, there is a plethora of depth a mere double-tap away.

From Aaron Spelker's review, "What I love about this game is that there is a lot to keep track of and consider. I am tired of games accessible to blind players being simple, stripped-down versions of games a sighted player would play. Football Chairman Pro lets a blind player fully experience running a soccer team from the humble beginnings of a bar league up to the premier division."
