FM23 UEFA License

You will feel a greater sense of occasion in UEFA club competition matchdays with official branding across a number of pre, post and matchday screens.

That is not going to be a case of just slapping a logo on a news item. We are likely to see competition tailored backgrounds and the official anthems playing before matches for deeper immersion.

It looks like there is going to be an emphasis on reaching the competitions as you take a club into them.

FM2023 Minimum System Specs


When we are building our squads and want to see how to build around a player, we are now able to directly bring a shortlisted player into this planner and see how things will work.

What this exactly entails besides this small point is currently unknown. It could possibly be an expansion of the tactics screen, scouting network and data hub.

Possibly a new sub-tab where we will see coaching tactical feedback when shortlisting players.

FM23 Early Beta Access Explained


There are lots of aspects about the game that we get excited about. It could be about bringing through a newgen into the first team or signing a great bargain player.

The point is to display a “physical representation” of such things that get us excited in FM.

What exactly this entails is unknown, but based off other points it could be new UI screens and items, or even social media and supporter & board feedback.

Football Manager 2023 Giveaways


We already have this in FM, but it appears to have been expanded upon.

The goal is to capture the emotional part of the game which fans have in connection to their club as a main focus and the decisions you make as a coach.

This could have many inclinations for us in FM23 and it will be interesting to see how much this actually expands.

Football Manager 2023 Release Date


It looks like tactics are a major thing this year, not just with the planner as mentioned above but also with an emphasis on creating your own tactics and having different styles work.

There is an expansion of tools available to make multiple tactics such as defensive low-blocks and counter-attacking to work. Rather than a possible exploitable high attack gegenpressing style which will not always work.

So it is quite possible there is a tactical overhaul this year and more match engine adjustments.

What we know about FM23


SI hired a larger design team which makes it now possible to focus on specific areas and parts of the game's design as well as complimentary assets around it.

This could mean multiple things, most likely dealing with UI and information display.


  • More insight with additional data analytics, such as expected attacking output.
