Here is when you can expect Football Manager 2022 to be released

Football Manager 2022 is typically released in November but don't let that stop you from getting excited now.

With Euro 2020 still on, keep an eye out for any potential wonderkids to sign on the new game like many of you already have been.

Release Date

Football Manager 2022 is still a few months away so Miles Jacobson - Football Manager Director/Executive Producer - is yet to confirm a release date.

Last year’s game was released on 24 November 2020 – slightly later than previous editions.

This year, although not officially confirmed, we should see the game return to a slightly earlier release - we estimate around Tuesday, 16 November 2021.



With that being said, any Football Manager enthusiast will know fans can access the Football Manager Beta two weeks prior to the full release if you pre-order the game.

There has been no word as to when pre-orders will become available but past releases suggest you should be able to pre-order by September.


If the game continues its pricing from last year, we expect Football Manager 2022 to cost £39.99 / $49.99 on Steam, £29.99 / $39.99 on Xbox and Nintendo Switch, and £8.99 / $8.99 on Mobile.

However, last year's game was available to pre-order for £35.99 on Steam so we are likely to see a similar discount for Football Manager 2022.


Typically, Football Manager is a PC game available on Windows and macOS via Steam or Epic Games.

Alternatively, you can download a handheld version for iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch as seen above.


As per last year, a version of the game should also be coming to Xbox with no word as to whether it will be available on PlayStation just yet.

We are unlikely to see the return of Football Manager on Google Stadia as this was discontinued after Football Manager 2020.

New Features

Unfortunately, Sports Interactive keeps any new features they have developed over the course of the year pretty secret until nearer the release date.

Previously, fans have had to wait until October before seeing a trailer for the game's new features so any fans excited to see what the new game holds will likely have to wait until then.

Fans may be holding out hope for the ability to manage women's teams, more dynamic interviews and better player interactions, but as of right now, these are all just fantasy.
