Ever since initial launch as Championship Manager in 1992, the Football Manager games have been the definitive simulator for those looking to take charge of their favourite team.
Combined with FIFA, it has provided a comprehensive video game experience for fans of the beautiful game. However, FM has always been considered more in-depth, offering granular control over nearly every aspect of how a club is run.
FM 2020 is set to continue that trend. The full game is now available, having been released on 19 November.
The full version of the game is only playable on PC and Mac, with
Google Stadia to follow despite it also releasing on 19 November.
FM Touch and FM Mobile are also available on both the App Store and Google Play.
You can buy the game now on the Football Manager website for
£39.99, the cheapest we’ve seen. There is also the option to get
Arsenal or Valencia versions, which gets you the official club kits, crest and player faces that wouldn’t normally be available.
If you’d like to order through Steam instead, you can pick it up for the
same price, and it’s the only place we’ve found it available if you’re in the US (
