News - When is FM20 Beta Release Day
Early access to a fully-playable FM 2020 Beta version that should open approximately 2 weeks before the full game release that is set for November 19th.

FM 20 Early Beta access is one of the free bonuses you get for pre-purchasing Football Manager 2020 from participating retailers, such as the FMSCOUT store.

Other free bonuses include a gift copy of FM Touch 2020 for PC/Mac (normally worth £22), as well as a verified buyer badge for your member account (here on FM Scout) and 5 chances to win 1 of our exclusive tools for FM20.

When exactly is this FM20 Beta coming?

Here are 3 things to remember about the public Beta access:

  1. The Beta will be made available at least 2 weeks before the final game release (November 19th)
  2. The Beta will be released whenever Miles Jacobson feels it's ready
  3. The Beta will be ready on or before November 5th

The fully-playable Beta will be available no later than Tuesday November 5th. However, my personal guess is that Football Manager 2020 Beta will unlock on October 31st (or November 1st even).

The basis of my assumption is historic records. The previous six years, beta was released either 15 or 16 days before the final version. Also last year the Beta dropped 6 days after the first look live stream, which took place on October 21st this year.

Get access to the FM20 Beta for free

Pre-purchase FM20 from to enjoy early access to the Beta version at least 2 weeks before release date, a free copy of FM Touch 2019 for PC/Mac (also with early Beta access), a unique buyer badge on our site, and our gratitude for supporting our community financially.
