Ever had a dream to manage your favourite football team or have you ever felt like you could do better than Fabio Capello or Rafael Benitez? Well for most of us football fans that dream will never become a reality, so for the next best thing…enter the Football Manager series.
Originally released in 1992 on the PC platform as 'Championship Manager' it was the first of it's kind and has been ever popular with football fans alike. Year after year a new 'updated' version with some new features is released allowing the popular franchise to continue.
In 2004 Football Manager was created after developers Sports Interactive (SI) split from publishers Eidos Interactive, but they managed to retain the rights to the source code but not the rights to the title Championship Manager, which were held onto by Eidos.
