Football Manager 2022 Price - What We Know So Far

The Euros have been tempting us with potential signings for nearly a month now, so we can't wait to get on Football Manager 2022 and start building our team.

Already dreaming about your club's starting transfer budget? First, make sure you've got the budget in your bank account to get the game - and if you don't get saving!

Find out how much you need to set aside, as well as everything else regarding the release, below.

Release Date

Football Manager games are usually released around the middle of November, but last year we were made to wait until Tuesday, 24 November.

Let's hope we don't get that experience again, and we estimate that Tuesday, 16 November is a more likely date - but there's nothing to stop it coming earlier!

You're probably going to be on it sooner than release anyway...


Beta Not Miss Out

The trick to getting on FM22 as early as possible is to pre order!

When you pre order a copy of FM you can access the Beta two weeks earlier than the game is released, plenty of time to get stuck into it.

So get prepared with a pre order - imagine how smug you can be if you're the only one of your mates who does it!

Money Matters

Last year the cost of FM21 was £39.99 / $49.99 on Steam, £29.99 / $39.99 on Xbox and Nintendo Switch, and £8.99 / $8.99 on Mobile.

Don't expect that to change. We haven't had any confirmation yet, but expect a price out in the next couple of months.

It's also probable that there will be a discount on pre orders, such as the £35.99 offer on Steam last year. We hope to see that mirrored across other platforms too.

You might also find discounted versions of the game from the shops at your local football clubs.


Platforms - Coming to a PS5 near you?

We all see FM as a game mainly played on PC or Mac, but other devices are entering the arena too.

Last year saw the inclusion of the full game on Xbox for the first time since 2007, and that looks to continue this year. You can play on the move on Nintendo Switch and a mobile version on iOS and Android too.

So why are PS4/PS5 users not allowed to join the fun? A tweet from Miles Jacobson, studio director of Sports Interactive - the team behind Football Manager - tells all.

Better get begging Sony!
