Sega title Football Manager finally heading to Android

Football Manager is one of those blockbuster PC titles that, year after year, attracts huge numbers of players. The handheld version has been available on iOS for a while now, but Sega has finally decided to bring it to Android, further bolstering their ever developing catalog.

The launch of this premium title will also come with a premium price. In the UK, it'll cost £6.99 when it launches in the Google Play Store on April 11. 

So what does £6.99 actually get you? A pretty full featured Football Manager experience, that's what. Leagues are included from 12 countries, as is full control over transfers -- vital in getting your local, lower league team to Premier League glory. In match live control is also along for the ride, with an adjustable match speed. 

While initially available from the Google Play Store, Sega have said that it will likely be available from other Android app stores in the coming weeks.

  • Oh that football....I was like cool Football, then I was like oh football. Ya I'm not really a football fan. Be let me now if any cool Football apps come out as I am a Football fan. (not a hater of football just got confused and wanted to poke fun at myself)
  • Wanted to say the same thing. Please refer to it as "Soccer" so all nationalities know what you mean.
  • It's football in most countries in the world ;-) and the game isn't called soccer manager!
  • the game it self it called football manager, the reason this is so is because the game is called football, the english invented it, americans speak english, so even though you try to change the name of the game, why dont you just call the sports what their actualy called, football is called football, and your sport is called american football. simples.
  • Think you know everything about your precious game, football or should i say RUGBY FOOTBALL or SOCCER as the ENGLISH called it is what its properly called. The only reason American football is called American Football is because of the English, in America its just called Football. The Americans never called it Soccer the English did...Why don't you call your sport by its proper name... Btw i love this game used to play it loads, wished they would release a reto champ man 97-98 best version ever!
  • I don't think they'll get enough downloads cuz it's the end of seasons but i'll guess they'll have their app ready for next year. (if they don't decide not to make it for the new season because of download count.)
