Most Likely Football Manager 2021 Release Date
The most likely Football Manager 2021 release date is Friday 6th November based on previous releases. Six of the 16 editions were launched this very week and we think its a great guide for an FM21 release.

Of course we are in unprecedented times with COVID 19 and it remains to be seen how Sports Interactive will be effected by the pandemic.
FM21 BETA Release Date
The Football Manager BETA is generally available roughly two weeks prior to full release. The official line from Miles Jacobson is ‘roughly’ two weeks and we are yet to see a delay.
As for the official FM 2021 release date, we hope to hear something around August if last years announcement is anything to go by. Hear it here first by following us on Twitter and Facebook for all the latest Football Manager 2021 news.
We have compiled a Football Manager 2021 features wishlist, jam pakced with our own hopes for the new game and those of the community. All FM 2021 new feature announcements however will be hosted on this page.
