Football Manager 2021: Release date, new features and more

What is there to expect from the new edition of Football Manager: Football Manager 2021? On this page you will find out all the information on FM21, including release dates, system requirements, new features and more!

Football Manager 2021 Release date

Expected release: Early November

An official announcement for Football Manager 2021 has not been made about the official release date of FM2021. However, looking at the recent years, Sports Interactive will aim to release the game in the early stages of November.

Of course, this date range will only be confirmed if Sports Interactive don’t suffer any delays due to the coronavirus lockdown and the development team working from home.

Football Manager 2021 BETA

Expected release: Mid-October

We are expecting the FM2021 Beta to be released at least two weeks before the full release. In recent years the Beta has always been released around mid October. The Beta will allow Football Manager fans a chance to get early access to the game and help the development team by mass-testing the game.

FM2021 New Features

Expected: September

Every year Sports Interactive will publish press releases showing new features in their game. Usually the feature announcements are made in late August or early September and we are expecting the same for that this year.

  1. Have experienced and also heard from other 2020 users about having 80 or 90 soys over 4 or 5 games and not being able to score.. not as a one off but regularly this is obviously a huge flaw which discourages gamers to continue playing.. is this something you have looked into for 2021 or not?
