Football Manager Classic (FMC for short) is essentially, for the first time in Football Manager's long and successful history, an alternative, less time-consuming way for players to approach the game. The new mode simplifies the way players manage their club and allows them to focus on the nuts and bolts of taking their team to the top.

"The introduction of FMC is a major step forward in Football Manager's evolution," says Sports Interactive's studio director Miles Jacobson. "In recent years it's become clear that there's a large group of people who would like to play Football Manager, but simply can't devote the time required to get the most out of the game – in fact, now that they have families and other commitments, even some members of the SI team have found themselves in this position. We decided, therefore, to try to find a way to accommodate players with limited free time, without significantly diluting the experience. We believe that FMC achieves this beautifully."

The essence of the game is exactly the same. The manager still takes charge of a squad of players and competes to whatever level he/she chooses, but you'll now find that there is a number of responsibilities delegated to support staff.
For example, when a player takes charge of training in FMC this is carried out for the full team level only and there's no individual player training. And it gets to matches themselves, there are no team talks or opposition reports; you just go straight to a game, which is played in a much quicker highlight-only fashion. There is also the option of just choosing 'Instant Result' and skipping the entire match if you are in a real hurry.

"I would, however, like to stress to our many, many fans around the world that the introduction of FMC will not impact in any way on the game that they've come to know and love. For those who still want the full, 'hands-on' experience, Football Manager 2013 offers exactly what they're looking for – a bigger, better and even more immersive version of the world's greatest football management simulation."

As well as streamlining the manager's role – to the point where a full season can be played out in eight to 10 hours – FMC also offers its players two distinct ways to play; they can either embark on an open-ended career or test their mettle in the new Challenge mode.
There's still a 'Normal' mode right? I don't really like the sound of FMC...
Yes there will be Glenn. There will always be one :)
