Versus Mode is here!

Football Manager has just dropped its Winter Update, bringing the game up to date with all the latest transfers, adjusting player stats and sorting out some stability issues.


There was also a surprise in store, as Versus Mode has entered the game, letting managers battle it out against each other to show who has created the better team.

What is Versus Mode?

Versus mode is one of Football Manager 2022's multiplayer modes that allows you to export a team from your current single-player career, or alternatively, you can select an existing squad.

Versus mode allows you to test out fresh tactics against the AI, learning new things about your team along the way.
