It's a day to remember for all Football Manager fans across the globe. No more English Premier Division, no more Man UFC from next game onwards you'll get the full Premier League experience on Football Manager.

The game has been a part of many football fans lives for decades as it's the most immersive football video game on the planet and now it's about to get more realistic than ever.

Football Manager announced on its Twitter today that it has now partnered with the Premier League to get full licensing of the league in the game on a four-year deal from the start of next season


All 20 Premier League teams next season will have official logos, player photos and official kits across all different versions of the game. The current edition of the game, FM 24 is already the most popular edition of the game on record as it's received a huge surge in popularity in recent years and it could get even more popular now with today's news.


The Studio Director of Sports Interactive Miles Jasobson spoke in a statement on the deal about how the deal is more than just a basic licensing deal between SI and the Premier League.

Since Football Manager’s inception, we have always wanted to work with the Premier League, and we’re delighted to announce that at last we are.

The partnership isn’t just about the huge in-game benefits it’ll give our fans, but also the opportunities it provides us to help with the incredible things that the Premier League and their clubs do off the pitch. That includes community and charitable work, two things we're enormously passionate about, as well as the ability to work with some of their existing partners.

Will Brass, the Chief Commercial Officer for the Premier League also spoke about the groundbreaking deal and the league's delight to be involved commercially with the game.

Football Manager has been a big part of the sporting landscape for decades, and is loved and enjoyed by millions of fans around the world. We are thrilled that the Premier League will now feature even more prominently in the game, helping to deliver a deeper, more authentic experience for anybody who takes on the challenge of managing a Premier League club.

Fans of the game came together to celebrate the news online and some  of the reaction are quite hilarious.

Now the question many fans will be wondering now is who they will start their new save with in FM 25 and bring them into the Premier League?
