Football Manager 2024: Feature Rollout and New Partnerships
Thank you all for your feedback on the Development Update blog that we released in June. It was great seeing so many people talking about the future potential of the Football Manager series on our forums and social media.
When writing blogs like that one, it’s always difficult to find the right balance between trying to be transparent and being careful not to talk about things too early. As a big fan of certain TV shows that are full of community ‘theory forums’, I’ve always enjoyed speculating with other people’s work, but always find it a bit odd with our own work, despite the fact that players being excited to get their hands on more information is probably the most gratifying thing that can happen for our team! We hope we got the balance right and the feedback we received means further transparency with today's blog and more to come in the future.
We’re really pleased to have released our Football Manager 2024 announce trailer, which outlines some of the themes that we’ll be talking about a lot more in the coming weeks. If you haven’t seen it, make sure to check it out below.
In this blog, I’ll be talking about what happens next with the rollout of FM24’s features as well as some new partnerships which will benefit both this year’s release and future titles beyond.

Building an FM23 Newgen Dream XI with FMFC
Over the last seven months, we’ve all experienced the highs and lows that a Football Manager career can bring. Now, to capture all of that drama, we’re creating our very own FM23 all-star newgen XI, powered by you, our FMFC members.
That XI won’t be solely selected on pure ability or to accommodate a fixed formation. We know that with standout newgens, it’s the stories associated with them that makes them so special and unique.
Maybe it’s a tale of someone from one of the world’s smaller nations that helped you with your promotion push up the divisions. What about that Central Defender that was only five-foot-six but had 19 Acceleration? Or the striker you snapped up from non-league that smashed your club’s all-time scoring record by the time they were 24?
Wherever they played, whoever you managed and whatever it was that made your favourite FM23 newgen special, we want to hear about it.
The 11 FMFC members that get their players selected in the starting line-up will receive an FMFC 23 home shirt with the newgen’s name and number printed on the back. They’ll also see their superstars spotlighted in a future blog on the FM website and FMFC Hub.
The competition closes at 5pm BST on Wednesday 28th June. Terms and conditions apply.
Win a Venezia FC shirt with FMFC
The Italian club are internationally recognised for their stylish kits and this season’s gold jersey is another classic.
A perfect summer fit, the shirt combines a metallic gold base with a single-button black collar. The collar features trim of Venezia’s trademark green and orange, while the gold styling pays tribute to the colour’s significance in Venetian art.
