News - Football Manager 2018 Official Release Date
Sports Interactive have just confirmed the official Football Manager 2018 release date.

Mark this day in your calendar:

Friday, November 10th, 2017

This year for the first time, all three versions of the game – Football Manager 2018 (PC, Mac and Linux), Football Manager Touch 2018 (PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android) and Football Manager Mobile 2018 (iOS and Android) will be released on the same day.
