News - Football Manager 2018 Minimum System Requirements
The following are the minimum system requirements your computer needs in order to run Football Manager 2018 and/or Football Manager Touch 2018. For a smoother gaming experience, better specs are recommended.

While most system specs are similar to those of FM 2017, it's surprising that the required hard drive space has risen to 7 GB (!) compared to 3 GB that was before.

    That extra storage is surely due to a graphical update.
