Football Manager is a football management simulation video game that started back in 1992 and has evolved each year. Now fully licenced for most of the Football Leagues, it offers an intricate way to manage a Football Club of your own.

Although in many ways it is simply a complex set of spreadsheets, the mechanics and nuance of the simulation have drawn an avid audience. There are many ways to approach the challenge with the game's "manage your football club, your way' moniker. Perhaps the biggest achievement of the game is to make it feel as if every decision counts as you attempt to climb your way up the table.

  • Football Manager Touch (2020) is a more accessible version on Android, iOS, Switch, PC, Mac
