FM 2020, the world’s greatest managerial sim, will hit the shops in a few months’ time

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

If you don’t own a pair of curtains, then you’d probably get some – if only to close them throughout the entirety of November (exact date TBC) and block out the world.

Yes, Football Manager 2020 is coming to a platform near you soon – and you can check out the trailer for it below. 

Details are thin on the ground for now – the first lot will come in mid-September, according to creators Sports Interactive – but we do know that it will be available on Google’s Stadia (“the fastest way to experience Football Manager,” says SI). 

Pre-order now and you’ll land yourself a 10% discount, plus those who purchase through a SEGA-approved digital retailer will be able to get their managerial careers under way roughly two weeks early through a fully-playable Beta version (but please note: not on Stadia). 

Football Manager 2020 (for PC, Mac and Stadia), Football Manager 2020 Touch (for PC, Mac, iOS and Android) and Football Manager 2020 Mobile (for iOS and Android) will all be released simultaneously in early November. Football Manager 2020 Touch for Nintendo Switch will follow in late November.
