Football Manager is the best-selling, most realistic football management series ever made. Football Manager 2013 celebrates 20 years of games from the people at Sports Interactive by introducing an array of new features. This year’s version allows you to take control of any club in more than 50 nations across the world and includes all of Europe’s biggest leagues as well as database of over 500,000 real-world players and staff. As well as some landmark new features in the Career Mode, there are now new ways to enjoy your Football Manager experience.
New To Career Mode:
The 3D match engine has seen huge improvements this year. Everything on the pitch looks more realistic; from the stadiums, the players’ movement, intelligence, and the way the ball moves through the air.
We’ve also introduced hundreds of new animations to make the game feel more realistic and we’ve made the whole experience more televisual by introducing new camera angles and showing the kick-off and final whistle.
Another notable difference is the significant restructure of the manager’s staff and a revamp of their roles. The most obvious is that we’ve introduced the position of Director of Football into the game for the first time, which will allow managers to pass on some of their workload, such as contract negotiations, if they choose to.
In addition to this, we’ve also increased the number of specialist coaching roles within the game and given the manager greater flexibility to choose which coaches offer advice and when. The manager can also choose to complain about boardroom interference – although that particular option should probably be used sparingly.
And much more…
A brand new training system, improved international management, tones in press conferences & a new user interface.
New Ways To Play
Classic and Challenge Modes
Football Manager Classic is a less time-consuming way to enjoy Football Manager. The essence of the game is exactly the same – the manager still takes charge of a squad of players and competes at whatever level he or she chooses – but they will now find that a number of their responsibilities have either been taken over by their support staff or have disappeared completely.
For example, while the player still takes charge of training in FMC, this is carried out at a 'full team' level only – there's no individual player training. And when it gets to matches themselves, there are no team talks or opposition reports... you just go straight to a game using the same 3D match engine as Career Mode. The games are played out in a quicker 'highlights only' fashion, but you can even speed this up by going straight to ‘Instant Result’.
Players who opt for Football Manager Classic will also find that they have a couple of further options in terms of how they play the game; they can either play a full open-ended ‘Career’ or they can choose to play in the new ‘Challenge’ mode.
In Challenge mode they’ll find themselves in a particular situation which will test their management skills over a shorter game time – usually half a season. 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 at Xmas?
We first introduced Challenge Mode in Football Manager Handheld 2012 and it proved to be so popular that we’ve decided to include it in FMC too.
The game will come with four free-to-play challenges, each of which feeds in to a global leaderboard.
The brand new Network Play is fully integrated with Steam’s network functionality which means that players should be able to set up and enjoy games against their friends far more easily than before. The Network Mode also allows people to set-up special one-off leagues and cups and to import their team from their career mode, so you can now end any debate about whose FM team is better.
The deeper integration with Steam will also allow us to manage worldwide leaderboards, so, for the first time you’ll really know how good a manager you are.

Football Manager 2013 is great!
Football Manager 2013 is the best game in the world. Highly recommend.
In Football Manager 2013, the world of football management is brought to life with more updates and a broader spectrum of detail. It's a great game and they have excelled once again.
Football Manager 2013 is the perfect game. It's so addictive!
Football Manager 2013 is great.
Football Manager 2013 is a game for football maniacs which want to but can't manage real teams in football. From last year there are a couple of upgrades. It's definitely worth the money.
I'm very pleased with my purchase! Football Manager 2013 is just as addictive as any other game in the series. I cannot put it down!
Football Manager 2013 is not as good as its predecessors, but that may be due to the different layout and user interface, so this feeling will probably change in time. The match engine is not perfect, but it's not as bad as some people say. The training system is simplified, which is good. All in all, it's a very good game, though that's what is to be expected from Sports Interactive.
Football Manager 2013 is super.
One warning, this game is so addictive! The realism keeps getting better with every yearly release and gives you a feel of what it is like to manage a football club, from giving your players tactics for the match to speaking to each individual differently, depending on their character and behaviour. Everyone can play this game depending on their own style of management and also depending on the facilities of the club of is managing, for example one can decide on whether to nurture youngsters or prefer to purchase ready made stars. A must buy for all football management fans!!!
Football Manager 2013 is just perfect. It's a great way to become a real manager but in the fantasy of our minds.
Football Manager 2013 is a very good game. All football fans will love it.
I don't play Football Manager 2013 myself as I am a girlie girl but it keeps my boyfriend busy. He says I can be his assistant manager but I think I'll just leave him to it. If you liked the previous games, I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Take a break now and then to pay attention to your girlfriend though!
Great game, great new features after the last game, was so addicted to the last one and now already so addicted to this, play it everyday! 4 stars easy! Was almost a 5 stars for me!
Great game, as always.
Football Manager 2013 is definitely a good game. I love playing it.
The most amazing game ever its really detailed, i real;y recommended this to all football fans.
The best game ever of Football Manager, very difficult but with time, the player will gain experience to coach the biggest team in the world of football. Try to start with a small team and go to the top, then you shall see, how hard it is to buy players and staff to your team. Manage the training, speak with the board, ask for money, to apply in wage, transfer's and to prepare the younger players. Like i said, the best Game to Manage that every one must have
Best Football Manager ever. The game is so detailed and realistic.
