COVID-19 in Football Manager 2021

COVID-19 in Football Manager 2021

Find out what effect COVID-19 will have on Football Manager 2021 when it gets released in November.


Here are the keynotes from Sports Interactive studio director, Miles Jacobson, on how COVID-19 will reflect on Football Manager 2021 gameplay.

Club’s finances will inevitably be in a worse state than you would normally expect when you start a new save. The most visible knock-on effect of this will be transfers; we’ve rewritten chunks of our transfer system to ensure that while superstars and wonderkids will retain their value, FM21 will see more ‘loan to buy’ offers, the value of mid-range players dropping and clubs in real financial trouble trying to move players on a more regular basis. However, as money comes back into the game over time, the transfer system will adapt and eventually return to some sense of ‘normal’.

Usual ‘start dates’ are out of the window, but they soon revert to normal. In certain leagues (those that have already finished by the time the game is released) we’ve made the decision to start at the beginning of next season, for example, the MLS.

Crowds will attend matches from the very start. The revenue this generates will allow clubs to get back onto an even keel sooner and will help with the above-mentioned in-game financial and transfer systems.

Transfer windows will start by matching their current real-life counterparts but will revert to ‘normal’ in season two.

Match wise, substitution rules will be as they are in real life for season one; if a league is using five subs (rather than three) then so are we. Then, like the transfer windows mentioned above, revert to ‘the old normal’ in season two, unless the competition in question has already indicated that the plan is to adopt the new rule for the long term.

Covid 19 will not appear as an "illness" in FM21
