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 2020 activation code through FM Scout's 2game store greatly aids our fansite in raising enough funds to stay afloat and keep going forward.
Pre-purchase FM20 from FM ScoutStart playing 2 weeks earlier with early beta access, and get FM Touch 2020 for PC/Mac (worth £21.99) as a gift!
Very competitive pricing for Europe and UKThe price is £32.99 for UK, roughly €36.49* (at the time of writing this article) 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 €50! That is a whopping €13.50 difference. And for UK, the difference is 3 GBP.
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.
*Price in EUR may fluctuate as it depends on the GBP-to-EUR currency exchange.

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 almost 15 years now, and hopefully with your contribution we can continue to do so.
