Take charge of your team’s future

Football Manager 2021 is a football management simulation video game wherein you can take charge of a football team from their humble beginnings to their greatest legacy. Developed by Sports Interactive, this sports game is part of the popular Football Manager franchise and is the successor to Football Manager 2020. There are new additions to the beloved features but it still retains the in-depth sports team-handling.

A more personal take

Football Manager is a series of football management simulation video games developed by Sports Interactive and published by Sega. Originally released as Championship Manager in 1992, it eventually received this re-branded title after Sports Interactive and the first publisher Eidos Interactive stopped their partnership. Rather than the direct football-playing found in the FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer franchises, you instead get to assist and manage football clubs here, cultivating their talent for their matches.

Officially abbreviated as FM21, Football Manager 2021 brings back the classic dynamic true-to-life manager experience. The game lets you have access to more than 50 countries and 2,500 football clubs—all at various different levels. You can pretty much customize your team, honing them to become better players at the sport. You also have your backroom staff, who will assist you in analyzing the player market to snag the best assets.

Not only do you oversee your team’s training, but their playstyle during matches, as well. Additionally, you can make your manager days more in-depth by expressing yourself much better with Gestures and Quick Chats when talking to characters. For data analyses, Matchday stats help in making decisions for your team. Plus, you can relive great highlights from your campaigns and seasons with the new season review presentation feature.

Let your club grow

All in all, Football Manager 2021 is a great addition to this series’ line-up due to its massive improvements. The main issue that old fans usually have with it is its new interface design and FM21 can feel like just another polished FM20. However, both old and new players alike can find the new features to be handy and more meaningful for their football-managing experience so this is a recommended game to try out.


  • Matchday analysis stats really help in directing your team
  • New interaction system
  • Interface has been redesigned
  • Still retains beloved core features from previous game


  • Changes in interface design may feel strange
