Football Manager Now Has The Premier League License

The Football Manager series is now the official football management video game of the Premier League.

The Premier League and Football Manager devs Sports Interactive has signed a 4-year deal which will see all the 20 Premier League clubs to featurer official logos, kits and player photos included in upcoming Football Manager games, starting with the 2024/25 season.

The announcement trailer shows TV footage of the past matches in the Premier League, including some shots where teams are sporting Sega, the publisher of the Football Manager games, as the main sponsor.

Previously, Football Manager has featured generic club logos with no official branding for the top flight of English football. Players have to mod these assets in. The lower ladders of the English football pyramid are all licensed, and so are several other football leagues around the world, which makes the omission of the biggest one rather odd. But not anymore.

“Since Football Manager’s inception, we have always wanted to work with the Premier League, and we’re delighted to announce that at last we are”, said Miles Jacobson, Sports Interactive Studio Director.

“The partnership isn’t just about the huge in-game benefits it’ll give our fans, but also the opportunities it provides us to help with the incredible things that the Premier League and their clubs do off the pitch. That includes community
and charitable work, two things we’re enormously passionate about, as well as the ability to work with some of their existing partners.”

More info about how the Premier League will be integrated into Football Manager, as well as other partnership activities, will be revealed later this year.
