UEFA has confirmed the Champions League and other European club competitions will feature in the Football Manager video game series for the first time this year.
The latest instalment of Sports Interactive and SEGA’s hugely popular series, Football Manager 2023, will be released on November 8.
Players will now be able to compete in fully licenced editions of the Champions League, Europa League, Europa Conference League and Super Cup, while the Women’s Champions League will appear in a future version of the game.
Sports Interactive’s studio director Miles Jacobsen revealed last July that the game’s creators plan to introduce women’s football in the future.
A UEFA press release read: “The UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, UEFA Europa Conference League and UEFA Super Cup will feature for the first time ever in Sports Interactive’s and SEGA’s iconic series, Football Manager.
“Although it will not feature in Football Manager 2023, the flagship women’s football club competition, the UEFA Women’s Champions League, is also included in the licencing agreement and will debut in a future version of the game.”
Jacobsen said: “Adding these historic competitions is an ideal fit for all parties involved and will add another dynamic and challenging element for fans that makes this year’s edition the most realistic football management simulation available.”
