It’s the time of year to look towards what system requirements are required for the latest edition of Football Manager. FM24 is not the most intensive game in the world, but the database is bigger than last year, and with the new match engine you will need a bit more power than in previous years. 

For the most part, FM24 involves looking at data and spreadsheets, but depending on how big you decide to have your database and how many leagues you have switched on it can slow the game down, especially if you don’t have a very powerful PC. 

The game can also be played on Mac as well, so we will also include what version of Mac is required as well as the minimum PC system requirements needed to fulfil your dream of becoming the greatest football manager of all time.
