Dynamic Rivalries - as your club progresses through lower tiers of your nation's championships/leagues, it gets new rivals by time, not just the ones that are there by default.


Depiction and treatment of injuries more realistic than ever before. As part of the injury revamp player insurance is in FM16. So when players get injured, their salaries are insured.


In FM16 any players who are still active (non-retired) can return for former teammate's testimonials.


In FM16 there is more advice on what to do with new signings who don't qualify for a work permit.


As part of a wide ranging staff revamp - Manager reputation is now on a 20 point star scale rather than a 6 point scale. "star scale" = star ratings. With text descriptions as tool tips.


In FM16 you will receive backroom advice on moving players to and from your B team based on changes to their ability and form.


English work permit regulation changes have been implemented in FM16

Non-players that have been handed a ban in real life will also have to serve that ban in FM16

In FM16 top players will be more likely to retire while they're still in their prime.


Customise your own touchline manager character & see them and other managers on the touchline.



Match engine - 2000+ new animations, deeper set-piece control, improved AI & brand-new highlights package.



Go head-to-head with mates in Fantasy Draft mode.



Replace an existing team with one of your own. Choose a name, colours & add yourself with Create-a-Club mode.



Deeper match analysis, player & team stats with Prozone integration.



Big changes and improvements to transfer, contract, player & contract screens (and many more).



TOUCH: Cross-play between desktop & tablet.

And in the meantime, don't give up. Football wouldn't be football without the occasional setback
