Football Manager 2021 Demo

The manager is the beating heart of every football club. In Football Manager 2021 new features and next-level detail renews that focus on you like never before, equipping you with all the tools to reach the top of the game. It’s over to you, boss.
Choose the club and the challenge that best suits your ambitions and then work with your club’s hierarchy to ensure you meet theirs… or face the consequences. There’s more than 2,000 playable clubs from 50+ top footballing nations to start your journey. It’s over to you, boss.
Join forces with your backroom staff to assess the strength and depth of your playing squad. Your scouting team will find players to help make your squad better and there will likely be a starlet or two in your Youth Team knocking on the door of the Senior Squad…
Craft tactical strategies, formations and styles of play for every occasion to maximise your club’s chances of winning football matches and getting those three points. Fast-track your success with popular pre-sets from the real world of football or customise your own playing style.
Immerse yourself in the spectacle of match day and revel in the glory of management as your planning pays off on the pitch before your very eyes. You can almost taste the victory.

Stamp Your Style

Communicating with your players and the media has never been more purposeful or realistic. Gestures enable you to express yourself fully and convey your point clearly, while Quick Chats improve those short, informal conversations which are part of day-to-day life as a manager. In FM21, others will feel the impact of your words and know the sort of manager you are.

Matchday Magic

Every fixture now feels like a true spectacle. With an improved matchday flow, you’ll now receive better analysis and advice in the pre-match build-up as well as more reaction and data post-match, including our brand new xG system, which will let you know how well or badly your team performed relative to the chances they created. Those data improvements combine with our remodelled match UI to bring you closer to the action than ever before.

Boss The Market

New staff roles, meetings and interactions freshen up one of the game’s most popular areas. Recruitment meetings now ensure that you and your scouting team are on the same page, both for your next moves and the club’s longer-term strategy in the transfer market. Moreover, you’ll now be able to approach agents directly about a player's interest in joining your club, which mimics how deals are done in the real world of football.

Revel In Your Glory

Re-live your campaigns and revel in your success like never before. A new season review experience picks out your best moments on and off the pitch, while showpiece victories feel much sweeter with improved title presentations and masses of media attention.
These are just a few of the many new features for Football Manager 2021, with more being revealed on our social media channels in the coming weeks.
FM21 is a game that rewards planning and knowledge but, unlike other games, there’s no pre-defined ending or script to follow, simply endless opportunities. Every club has a story to tell and it’s up to you to write it.

New tricks will make the headlines, but Sports Interactive's best move is to breathe new life into the brilliance that's already there.
