With your club’s fixtures in the diary, there’s just one date left to confirm… and we’re delighted to reveal that Football Manager 2017 will kick off on Friday, November 4th.
If you can’t wait that long, pre-purchase Football Manager 2017 now from a participating digital retailer and you can start your managerial career at least two weeks before full release with the free early-access Beta. Careers started in the Beta can be continued in the full game.
All copies of Football Manager 2017 (whether pre-purchased or bought after the release date) will come with a free copy of Football Manager Touch 2017 (for PC, Mac or Linux). Football Manager Touch 2017 - the more streamlined, ‘transfers and tactics’ way to manage - can also be purchased separately as a standalone game.
Whether you pre-purchase or pre-order Football Manager 2017 from a participating digital retailer, or a participating boxed retailer, you’ll also receive a range of free downloadable content for Touch including 'Board Override', 'No Firing', 'All Job Applications', 'National Management' and three brand new challenges to play in the 'Challenge' game mode.
A host of new and updated features will be revealed in the days leading up to the Beta release at footballmanager.com and on our Facebook and Twitter channels, so follow us now to be kept fully up-to-date.
