Support a fansite, not just ValveBuying your copy directly from the Steam store means you are only supporting Valve. They have profit regardless of whether you buy a game directly from them or from some other retailer, because at the end of the day the Steam platform is a requirement for Football Manager.
You can choose to be supporting people who put in great effort every season to enhance your Football Manager experience by creating and curating content. Speaking for myself, I can tell you that running FM Scout requires man-hours of a full-time job for a good number of months.
Where does your loyalty lie?
If you are or have been using fmscout.com for your Football Manager needs, I believe it makes sense to show your support towards the people who keep this place alive and well. Buying your Football Manager 2018 activation code through FM Scout's Nexway store greatly aids our fansite in raising enough funds to stay afloat and keep going forward.
Very competitive pricing for EuropeThe price is £38 for UK, roughly €41 for EU countries & the equivalent of that amount in other currencies. That is a true bargain for most European residents as the price they get on Steam store is €55! That is a whopping €14 difference.
Steam store has a different price for various countries, while we keep the same price for all. But even if the price is the same or similar to Steam (e.g. in case of UK), buying through our store makes a massive difference for the sustainability of our fansite.
And as a nice little bonus, we will reward you with a verified buyer badge for your fmscout.com member account.
Full pre-purchase rewards as alwaysOur Nexway store is an official SEGA partner since 2011. The Steam key you're getting will give you early access to the fully-playable Beta that will auto-update to the final version on November 10th. It will also gift you a copy of FM Touch 2018 for PC that is worth £22.
If I purchase my copy from here, where does the money go exactly?Advertising covers the costs of keeping this place online, but doesn't compensate for the actual work we do in order to keep delivering fresh content that enhances your Football Manager experience.
The funds raised through sales will ensure that we'll be in position to continue putting in the hours required to keep FM Scout a premier destination for you. Not only in terms of content, but also investing towards the development of new site features.
We have been serving the FM scene for over a decade and hopefully with your contribution we can continue to do so for years to come.
Thank you for considering our offer.
