Eidos’ Championship Manager series is the #1 selling football management game of all time; however, we’re not resting on our laurels! Over the last decade Championship Manager has gone from strength to strength, making armchair managers out of millions of players. The new game engine takes Championship Manager fans to the next level of playability with faster processing, more accurate player actions and comprehensive tactics.

After years of following matches through text commentary, a brave new world was introduced in CM4 via the 2D overhead match engine. This proved a very popular decision and CM5 will utilize a similar approach yet with a quicker, smoother experience. For the first time ever, Championship Manager 5 will also offer a tilted pitch perspective, thus allowing managers to gain an added dimension to how they view matches by being able to see the height of the ball. Another improvement is a wider choice of match speeds; now you can choose to watch matches…This further adds to the overall increase in game speed in Championship Manager 5, giving the manager the option to experience matches in as little or as much detail as they wish and allowing them to play more matches, more seasons, more leagues.

"This game is like a drug!"

I used to like sports game like Fifa, but once I discovererd Championship Manager, I really got hooked on the managerial side to soccer. This game gives you complete control over your team, from buying and selling new players, creating your tactic, dissing other managers in the press, or even coaching the youth team. I definitely recommend it to soccer fans!

  • A whole lot of statistics, updated information, can take all sorts of decisions from hiring staff to rebuilding the stadium
  • This demo only lasts 6 months...just enough to get hooked!!
