Soccer’s largest database comes to your pocket this summer thanks to Football Manager

FMdB can accompany you for the summer of football with info on over 400,000 players from across the planet.


The World Cup is on. England face Panama. Of course, some Panamanian left winger mazes through the defence and strokes home in the 91st minute to dump England out of the tournament.

Who is this player? Well, with the help of Football Manager you can have a database of talent from around the world in your pocket, courtesy of FMdB.

Sports Interactive and SEGA have announced the release of FMdB, a new app that gives you access to the world’s largest football database from your armchair. FMdB is available immediately as a free download on the App Store and will be available on Google Play in the near future.

Powered by Football Manager, FMdB includes data on more than 400,000 players from across the globe, giving a quick guide to their ability, potential, contract details and position. 

For those that subscribe to the app, there is additional information about each players’ attributes, career history and more. 

You can keep tabs on the players that are making the headlines with the app’s ‘Trending’ section and share player profiles with friends via social media. In addition, there is a host of nation and club information including each team’s best 25 players, sorted by ability.

“FMdB is the ultimate football knowledge app, essential for the info that you need ahead of what promises to be a fantastic summer of football and beyond,” said Sports Interactive’s Studio Director, Miles Jacobson.

“If you’re unsure how good the player is playing at right back, or who the midfielder is your team is looking at in the transfer window, FMdB gives you that info at the press of a button – it’s time to be properly ITK.”

Further updates to FMdB are planned over the coming weeks and months into the start of the European football season.
