The Unspoken Rivalry: Why Football Manager and FIFA Players Don't See Eye to Eye

Delving into the unspoken tension between Football Manager and FIFA communities to unearth what really divides these two worlds.


Just as FC 24—formerly known as FIFA—hits the market, it renews an age-old gaming rivalry that few like to speak about yet can't ignore: the divide between Football Manager (FM) and FC 24 communities. Despite both games revolving around the beautiful game of football, their fans often find themselves at opposite ends of the virtual pitch. With the recent launch of FC 24, now offering fantastic discounts on CDKyes for every platform, and FM24 also just around the corner, releasing on November 6th with an exclusive pre-order discount available, the rivalry seems set for a fiery new season. This post delves into the multi-layered reasons that fuel this ongoing tension.

A Tale of Two Gameplays


At the heart of the rivalry between Football Manager and FIFA are their contrasting approaches to football simulation. While Football Manager invites players into the nuanced world of club management, requiring long-term strategic thinking and in-depth tactical awareness, FIFA emphasises immediate on-pitch action and player control. These core differences create a natural divide, with each community valuing different skill sets and forms of engagement, fuelling the long-standing tension between the two games.

Skill Set Disparity: Not Just Apples and Oranges


FIFA players often argue that FM doesn't require as much skill because it lacks real-time action. This overlooks the deep strategic elements and situational awareness needed in FM. On the flip side, FM aficionados accuse FIFA of being shallow, dismissing the quick reflexes and tactical in-play decisions FIFA demands.

Stats and Facts:
  • Football Manager incorporates over 350 data points for evaluating players.
  • FIFA's Ultimate Team mode has seen a 20% growth in player engagement year-over-year.

Realism vs Arcade: The Unending Debate


Football Manager enthusiasts often highlight the game's meticulous attention to detail, from its expansive player databases to the realism of its match engine. Meanwhile, FIFA offers a more arcade-like experience that prioritises flashy visuals and quick gameplay—a focus that many FM fans find lacking in depth and nuance.

Cultural Underpinnings: More Than Just A Game


FIFA generally attracts a younger and potentially more casual audience, given its pick-up-and-play accessibility and social gaming features. Football Manager, on the other hand, appeals to those who enjoy sinking their teeth into intricate football analytics and who appreciate the slow burn of long-term strategic decision-making.

Can We All Just Get Along?


The feud between FM and FIFA players isn't likely to subside anytime soon. However, understanding the roots of this animosity can perhaps lead to a more respectful rivalry. The divide between FM and FIFA enthusiasts is as much about gameplay differences as it is about contrasting football philosophies. While bridging this gap entirely may be a tall order, mutual respect is not entirely out of the question.
