Everything you need to know about this year’s handheld edition

Whilst it may only feel like Football Manager 2022 has just arrived, you can be certain that Football Manager 2023 is just around the corner.

As ever, Football Manager 2023 Mobile will bring the managerial thrills and spills to your fingertips, and we’ve got you covered for all the latest information you need to know about FM23’s handheld edition.

LATEST – Juventus set for FM return?

Konami has announced that Juventus and eFootball’s exclusive license deal is coming to an end, allowing the Italian giants to be officially licensed in other games.

Juventus – one of Italy’s biggest sides – have been absent in traditional form in Football Manager for many years, going instead by the name of Zebre.

End of Zebre – Juventus could return in FM23

Unlicensed teams are the bain of anyone’s gaming experience, especially in a game like FM, where immersion and realism is the name of the game.

Thankfully, the end of Juventus’ exclusive deal with eFootball may open the pathway for Italy’s Old Lady to make a return in Football Manager 2023.

The Serie A license deal also expires with Serie A, meaning official badges and aesthetics could also return in FM23.

FM23 Mobile

Football Manager 2023 Mobile offers fans a chance to bring the rollercoaster of emotions to their fingertips.

BIGGER THAN EVER – FM22 featured on more platforms than ever last year

Offering a stripped-back version of the game, FM23 mobile promises to offer a fast-paced experience for players that prefer an easier ride in the world of football management.

Football Manager 2023 Release Date

Whilst there is no current confirmed release date for Football Manager 2023, we are expecting the game to launch at a similar time to FM22.

Football Manager 2022 released on 8 November 2021, and we are expecting FM23 to follow in these footsteps with an early-November release date.


FM22 cost £39.99 / $54.99 from the Epic Games or Steam stores, with 10% off for those who pre-purchase (taking it to £36.00 / $49.50).

We expect FM23 to have a similar price range, with a discount offer once again likely to be available to those who pre-order the game.

We expect the Mobile version to cost £8.99 / $8.99.

Football Manager 2023 New Features

Football Manager 2022 brought us a host of brand new features, and we expect FM23 to bring another round of major upgrades.

As mentioned above, FM23 Mobile will offer a more streamlined version of the game, with minor improvements set to take centre-stage as opposed to some of the more major additions seen in the main game.

Women’s Football

Women’s football is confirmed to be arriving in Football Manager, we just don’t know when.

Football Manager 2023 was mooted as a potential point of arrival for the women’s game, but we’ll have to wait and see if that comes to fruition.

GAME CHANGER – Women’s football will arrive in the coming years

Integrating women’s football into the database will take some time, with discussions with women’s leagues around the world commencing.

Check out our interview with two of the team at Football Manager here.

Enhanced Gameplay

Football Manager 2022 took things to a new level, and we are fully expecting FM23 to follow in its predecessor’s footsteps

In a recent interview conducted with FM’s gameplay development team, we were told that FM22’s gameplay improvements were only the start, so we are anticipating big things for Football Manager 2023.
