As we get closer to being able to play Football Manager 2022, we received a trailer that highlights new and exciting features coming to the game. One of these features is new data tracking.

We didn't get a deep dive into the data tracking, but we can see that there is a momentum and passing chart on its way. Check out the features reveal trailer here!

There are a ton of new features being brought to the game and we're excited to learn more as we near the expected November 9th release date.
