Play the Football Manager 2013 Demo now

Thank you to everyone who has been playing the beta over the last week and has given feedback on our social networks and forum to help us make the game even better for full release on 2nd November.

For those of you that haven’t pre-ordered/pre-purchased FM13, we’re pleased to let you know that you can now play the demo version by downloading on Steam. As always, you will need to have downloaded Steam and created an account - if you haven't done that yet, you can do so here. Then follow these instructions:

  1. Launch Steam and sign in to your account
  2. In the search bar, type Football Manager 2013 Demo
  3. On the right hand side click the ‘DOWNLOAD DEMO’ button (you may need to scroll down to see this)
  4. Follow the instructions to complete the download

The demo lasts for 6 in-game months and, as with the beta, you can carry on your save when you have the full game. If you have any feedback or technical issues, please report it on

You can still pre-order the game from any of our participating retailers here and get access to beta right up until full release.
