Football Manager comes to iPad & Android tablets

April 9th, 2015

We’re incredibly excited to announce that Football Manager Classic 2015 is available now on high-end iOS and Android tablet devices, giving FM fans the most authentic football management experience ever available on a handheld device. 

FMC was first introduced as a standalone game mode in FM13, and if you’re yet to try it out, it allows players to simplify the way you manage by focusing on the essentials of taking your team to the top. This means you can still enjoy the 3D match engine, plus full a FM database of players, but in a less time-consuming way.

Now the FMC experience has arrived on high-end tablets for the very first time, which lets you take control of any real-world club (from a selection of 117 leagues from 51 nations) and lead them to glory!

Fancy a taster? Check out the latest screenshots and video on our Facebook page!

  • Comprehensive Player and Team Training
    Take full control over the development of your squad and their day-to-day training; set a general team focus, outline specific routines for individual players or even schedule rest days. Or, if you want to keep your mind on match days, you can delegate all of this to your Assistant.
     
  • A Flexible Management Structure
    You decide how much control you have over day-to-day club management. Either delegate tasks to your Assistant Manager or immerse yourself in every aspect of the club. You can even choose to hire a Director of Football to deal with transfers or a Head of Youth Development to look after young talent.
     
  • An Accelerated Gameplay Option
    With Football Manager Classic 2015 you can choose the ‘instant result’ option to skip straight to the end of a match and thereby accelerate your progress. Should you choose this option, match plans allow you to decide upon a strategy for your team to follow whatever situation may arise during the game.
     
  • Challenge Mode
    Test your management skills with a range of short-term challenges. Can you win a trophy with a team consisting almost entirely of kids, or could you guide your club to safety despite being bottom of the table after half a season?
     
  • Plus Much, Much More…
    Football Manager Classic 2015 also includes a wealth of other options, including, deep post-match analysis and a variety of in-game unlockables for those managers who want to accelerate their progress.

If FMC15 doesn’t show in your local store straight away at midnight, then be patient. It’ll be propagating and will appear soon.

Welcome to the future of FM!
