The developers of Football Manager 2022 reacted to the situation in the world and spoke out with their position. The game is published by SEGA
Against the background of recent events, the developers of Football Manager 2022 decided to make some changes to reflect the real state of affairs in the football world.
For those who continue to play on the old save, the game will not change dramatically, but ” Russian and Belarusian clubs will be able to play friendly matches only in their countries, and matches of continental competitions on neutral venues, like their national teams .”
When starting a new game, there are much more changes. Russian clubs will be deprived of the right to participate in European competitions (Eurocups), as well as Russian teams will no longer ” take part in international tournaments, qualifying or friendly matches .”
Also in the new game, Ukrainian players will be considered EU citizens for 3 in-game seasons. So the developers of Football Manager 2022 want to reflect reality, because now Ukrainians can work in the EU for 3 years without a visa or work permit.
The publisher of the game is SEGA, which has withdrawn its games from sale in Russia. Shortly before that, the cost of Football Manager 2022 on Steam increased several times to 7 thousand rubles.
