News - Football Manager 2021 May "Secret" Update
Sports Interactive have just released the ninth minor patch for the retail version of Football Manager 2021. The version didn't change and remains 21.4.0 but the build number is different.

There's no changelog for this update, but I'm guessing it might have something to do with the change of banner on the start screen. More specifically, there's a banner linked to a fan survey that SI want feedback from to help them decide the future direction for the game.

Date Released: May 12th, 2021
File size: 262MB

21.4.0-1540115 List of Changes

- Possibly a change of banner on start screen

As usual the update is save game compatible, so you don't have to start a new save game.
To update you will need to close down Football Manager 2021 and re-launch for it to update. If this does not work for you or you feel it has not updated you will need to restart Steam.
If that doesn't do the trick, then verify the game cache will.

If you encounter any issues post update, please use the official FAQ for troubleshooting suggestions. You can also contact [email protected] or use or SI's FM21 Bugs Forum for further support.

    @moweed: Of course. New game build requires our tools to be updated for that. I've alerted Thanos (FMSE) and Eugene (GS) and hoping they can prepare new versions later today.

    I just downloaded your editor today and I got the message that it can't find a compatible FM version. I am playing FM 2021 Touch on steam.
