Football Manager 2023 Trailers

The only Football Manager 2023 trailer released so far is in conjunction with the official release date, but that is thankfully full of information.

Primarily, the release date serves as a commemoration of everything that happened in Football Manager 2022, including such ridiculous statistics like 30,709,037 goals for Erling Haaland, or that one 200 IQ manager used an Attacking 2-1-4-3 Wide tactic - how successful it was we unfortunately don't know though.

The biggest news in the trailer however is the arrival of UEFA licences, meaning that all UEFA competitions like the Champions League, Europa League, and UEFA Conference League will have official names and icons from the get-go. 

So, that's everything you need to know about the Football Manager 2023 release date, including some more information on the trailer, price, and platforms for the latest title.
