Editorial - Consider Purchasing FM21 from FM Scout
There are plenty of places you can legally buy your copy of FM21 from, with Steam store being a natural choice for most people.

Support a fansite

Buying 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. The same applies to the Epic Games platform.

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 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 2021 activation code through FM Scout's store greatly aids our fansite in raising enough funds to stay afloat and keep going forward.

Pre-purchase FM21 from FM Scout
Start playing 2 weeks earlier with early beta access, and get FM Touch 2021 for PC/Mac (worth £21.99) as a gift!

Very competitive pricing for Europe and UK

The price is £31.99 for UK, €35.99 for EU countries & $39.99 for other regions. That is a true bargain for most European residents as the price they get on Steam store is €50! That is a whopping €9 difference. And for UK, the difference is 3+ GBP.

But even if the price is the same or similar to retailers other than Steam store, buying through our store makes a massive difference for the sustainability of our fansite.

Full pre-purchase rewards plus exclusive ones

We have always teamed up with official SEGA partners since 2011 in order to offer you the full pre-purchase rewards. 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 24th. It will also gift you a copy of FM Touch 2021 for PC/Mac that is worth £22.

And as a nice little bonus, we will reward you with a verified buyer badge for your member account.
Plus a chance to win a premium license to one of our exclusive tools; Genie Scout 21, FMS Editor 21 or MacAssistant RT21.

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

Pre-purchase FM21 from to enjoy early access to the Beta version by mid November, a free copy of FM Touch 2021 for PC/Mac (also with early Beta access), a unique buyer badge on our site, and our gratitude for supporting our community financially.

Thank you for considering our offer.

    Thanks for the reply, I’m gonna buy it soon but I’m also thinking about buying one of the in game editors but I’m not sure which one. What one would you recommend? The one from steam or the FM Scout editor

    @Ronnie: Thanks for considering to support us with your purchase. The key will be instantly available on your gamesplanet account after successful payment. So click on the 'add to cart' button here, sign in to a gamesplanet account, select payment method, complete your purchase. Then go to "my games" area and you'll find your key there.

    I’m thinking about buying before the price goes back up, but I wanna know where the key goes before I buy (if I do). Like would it be sent to my email? And how long would it take? Thank you.

    i've purchased it via the above link, but the status is in review for quite a while, so it's not instantly, one need to wait to actually get the product he paid.

    Later edit. It finally activated.

    @Mmm: Thank you for considering to support us with your purchase.
    If you switch to EUR, you'll get the higher EUR pricing (39.99 EUR). It's cheaper to use the GBP pricing and pay the converted amount in EUR during transaction (around 35.99 EUR).

    I wanted to pre-purchase via FMS site but the link allows only for payment in GBP. To change currency, I have to switch to French, German or US language on Gamesplanet which empties my cart. Then I have to find FM21 game again and add it to the cart. Not sure whether the link to FMS site remains. If not could you help with change of currency via link on FMS site? Thx
