Football Manager 2016: OUT NOW

November 13th, 2015

We’re delighted to announce that Football Manager 2016 is now available on PC, Mac and Linux.

For those who have been enjoying the pre-release Beta, simply quit and restart Steam and your game will automatically update to the full version. Any single-player career progress you made during the Beta can be carried forward when your game is finished updating.

If you're new to FM, or need a friendly nudge in the right direction, here's how to install for the first time:

Steam purchases
Steam do not issue digital product codes, so after your purchase the game will automatically appear in your Steam Library ready for install.

Boxed copies 
Your product code can be found above the disc on a white sticker. Once located:

1.     Download the free Steam client: http://store.steampowered.com/about/
2.     Open Steam and Go to '+ADD A GAME' at the bottom-left of the window
3.     Select 'Activate a Product on Steam’
4.     Enter your product code and follow the instructions to begin installation 

Note: For those who have purchased the Limited Edition version, you will have two product codes; one for Football Manager 2016 and the other The Football Manager Documentary. The latter can be found on the back of the insert tucked into the sleeve, so please do not confuse this with Football Manager 2016 which can be found on the white sticker above the disc.

Digital purchases
If you’ve purchased a product code from a digital provider, your code should have been sent to you via email and you will need to follow the instructions below to activate: 

1.     Download the free Steam client: http://store.steampowered.com/about/
2.     Open Steam and Go to '+ADD A GAME' at the bottom-left of the window
3.     Select 'Activate a Product on Steam’
4.     Enter your product code and follow the instructions to begin installation 

If you haven’t received or have misplaced your Beta code, please speak to your retailer as a starting point. If they can’t resolve your issue then please contact SEGA customer services at help@sega.co.uk with proof of purchase, and they will aim to get you playing as quickly as possible.

If you experience any install or troubleshooting issues, or think you’ve spotted a bug or data issue, please post your issue on our Community forum and one of our QA team will get back to you at first opportunity.

If you’re yet to purchase FM16 you can do so now and begin playing immediately:

Happy managing!
