Football Manager 2023 Best Clubs to Manage

Football Manager 2023 has arrived across all platforms, with the game available to play across PC, Xbox and PS5 for the first time.

Regardless of your platform, picking the right club is key to any success and we want to help guide you along the way.

From fallen giants to those ready to flourish, we've got you covered for the very best teams you should manage at the start of your save in Football Manager 2023.

FM23 Best Clubs to Manage

Picking your club in Football Manager is a vital moment, with this team certain to become deeply entrenched within your heart for many years to come.

No one forgets their first, and this list has something for everyone in order to create memorable saves in Football Manager 2023.

KRC Genk

We start with a proper Football Manager challenge, focussing on the wonderkid factory that is Genk.

In FM22, the Belgian side possessed one of the best youth academies in the game and we can't see that changing much ahead of Football Manager 2023.

Wonderkid challenge saves are always a joy, challenging you to learn new youth recruitment tactics as you look to take your side forward.

With a small matter of a title challenge and European competitions also to consider, we think starting at Genk could create one of the best saves in Football Manager 2023.

Newcastle United

Managing Newcastle may not be a challenge, but it's enough of a blend to keep casual FM players excited.

In FM22, The Toon were the richest club in the Premier League and that's set to remain the same in Football Manager 2023.

MASTER THE TOON - How far can you take Newcastle?

With a large budget enabling you to spend and a great squad already in place, we think Newcastle are the perfect side to manage for those sinking their teeth into FM for the very first time.

With major money in place, can you topple England's elite and take Newcastle into the Champions League?

Oldham Athletic

Oldham Athletic are a true rags-to-riches story waiting to happen.

Off-the-field issues saw the former Premier League club slip out of the Football League pyramid completely, with the club now plying their trade in the National League.

The lower you go in England, the harder it gets, and we think attempting to bring Oldham back to the top could be a way to set your FM pulses racing.

You'll have to use every trick in the book, but taking Oldham back to the Premier League should be a challenge you're willing to face in Football Manager 2023.

UD Ibiza

The party capital of the world also harbours a decent football team, so decent in fact that they've managed to climb to Spain's second tier.

Now battling with some massive sides in the country, we think it's the perfect time for you to take over at Ibiza and look to make them a Spanish powerhouse.

They'll need to rise from the ashes and you'll have to keep your players away from the club, but all-in-all this test could offer one of the most unique challenges in FM23.

Ipswich Town

Ipswich - a former UEFA cup-winning side - certainly represent the perfect chance to resurrect a fallen giant in Football Manager 2023.

MASTERING THE TACTICS - Finding your best formation is key to success

The Tractor Boys have deep pockets, especially compared to the rest of the division, and you will certainly have money available to push them further.

With a great squad in place, blending both youth and experience, we think that your first season in League One could be a breeze.

From there, who knows, but there's every chance you could take this former footballing powerhouse back to the very top.
