Football Manager 2014 Patch 14.1.4
Sports Interactive released the second hot-fix update for Football Manager 2014 final retail version via Steam.

To update you will need to close the game down and re-launch for it to update. If this does not work for you or you feel it has not updated you will need to restart Steam.


Even if that doesn't do the trick, then verify the game cache will.

Released: 27 November 2013

Once updated the version number will be 14.1.4.

As with all hot-fix updates:
  • It is save game compatible allowing you to continue your current save game.
