The statement reads:

The FM25 cycle will also see the long-awaited introduction of women’s football to the Football Manager series.

Jacobson cited legal issues for the long delay since SI announced their intention to integrate women's football into the game, but at least we now know when it will be added.

In the blog post on FootballManager.com, Jacobson confirmed that key figures from the women's game are advising them on its integration, with more details set to be shared soon.

As of now, we're not sure which leagues and teams will be added as part of women's football expansion but we would expect it to be a similar size database for what we've seen in the main build of the game for many years.

The integration of women's football isn't the only major change coming to the future of Football Manager, with a brand new game engine set to arrive in FM25.

The graphics debate has swirled for some time in the FM community and things look set to change majorly once a new engine, Unity, is introduced.

Unity is behind games like Cities Skyline and will majorly overhaul what we presently see in the Football Manager series.

As with women's football, these new changes will come into effect once Football Manager 2025 releases, with both features set to be absent from the upcoming Football Manager 2024.
