So here’s what to expect next time. Football Manager shows no sign of slowing down in popularity anytime soon and FM24 may be the most exciting version yet – and that’s before we touch on what we know FM25…
When will Football Manager 2024 be released?
Early November. The final two games were both released on November 8, with FM21 arriving on schedule despite COVID-19 forcing the studio to work from home.
A drastic change from this release schedule was probably alluded to by studio director Miles Jacobson in a recent blog he did – so it’s safe to assume to expect the same again.

Football Manager 2024 will be available on PC, Mac, smartphone, tablet and console.
It can be purchased on Steam, Epic Games, Windows Store, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, Apple Store, Google Play Store and since FM23it is available on PlayStation 5.

Is there a trailer for Football Manager 2024?
Not yet – expect it in early September.
For the first time ever, you will be able to transfer your FM23 save to Football Manager 2024.
“I mean, when you first launched Football Manager 2024you will be given the option to continue your FM23 story, picking up where you left off – powered by new features and changing that FM24 will introduce,” studio director Miles Jacobson revealed. “And it’s not just for this year’s version of the game that this feature will be active. It also plans to bring saved games from FM24 in FM25despite the great changes to come FM25.”
Will women’s football be in the next version of Football Manager?
No – it will come to FM25.
In 2021, FFT spoke to Miles Jacobson and Chelsea women’s manager Emma Hayes about introducing the women’s game to FM and how it will change the game forever. Some speculate that this new database will be integrated into the FM22 – but there is FM23 outside, we are still waiting.
“We don’t talk about what we’re doing in the future, ever,” Miles told us. “But we have to generate that data and we can’t ask everyone to sign non-disclosure agreements.
“Let’s just be honest and upfront about what we’re doing and build up that network. Different people we’ve talked to – the first question they ask is about the data and whether they can get it because there’s just not enough.”
Other features have not been revealed for FM24 – but rest assured they will come.
“[The transferrable game feature] isn’t the only long-requested feature update to come FM24and one of the many major tech projects we’re working on as a studio,” Jacobson said.
Will Football Manager 2024 be the last in the series?
No – despite Miles Jacobson cryptically calling it “the last of its kind”. That’s just pointing it out FM25 being completely different.
“Football Manager 2024 is the 20th game at Sports Interactive Football Manager series, and will be the last of its kind,” he said. “This is a love letter to football and the FM series as we know it.
“FM24 is closing a chapter after 20 years at the top of the management simulation league. But this is far from the end of our story…”
We still don’t know who the big wonderkids are Football Manager 2024 will be – but we have a good idea. Here are our picks for youngsters to follow across FM24.
Football Manager 2025
What will Football Manager 2025 look like?
Football Manager 2025 will be bigger, better, faster and with a new engine, Unity.
“For years now, we’ve been planning the next revolution of Football Manager, something we haven’t claimed since the 3D engine first came to the series in FM09,” Jacobson revealed. “We last updated the graphics engine that runs behind our match engine in 2017.
“So, Football Manager 2025, FM25 Console and FM25 Touch our first Football Manager release to use the new engine – Unity. Incredibly well-known in the gaming space, Unity powers many of the world’s best-known games, from Genshin effect until Cities Skylines series. Project Dragonfly explored several game engine partners, but after all our research was completed, Unity was the clear favorite to take us into an exciting new era for the series.
“Moving to Unity will give us more power graphically, in all formats, along with powerful user interface tools. We’ve been working closely with Unity over the past few years to deliver a whole new UI that dramatically improve the ways you are able to interact with the game, both on and off match day.
“For those of you unfamiliar with gaming technologies – in simple terms, FM25 will have a better matchday experience – both on the pitch and in the supporting stadium environments, along with a highly improved user interface that will dramatically improve how you navigate the screens and access all the information available on you as the manager. We’ll also have new technology for Newgens and a creation manager that looks really promising at this early stage.”
