Football video games are about to suffer a major change after Konami announced that the eFootball series (formerly known as Pro Evolution Soccer) is shifting to a free-to-play model. While the announcement may force FIFA to adapt to the new situation, there are other games that are already making announcements about upcoming changes. SEGA's Football Manager series has always been slightly different from other football games because it focuses a bit more on the management aspect of the clubs, a field where it shines above its competitors with plenty of gameplay mechanics and features that allow you to manage a professional football team at all levels. Football Manager 2021 is already a favorite of those players that want to immerse themselves in a complex world where acquiring players with a great potential to field a competitive team and obtain the best possible results in a championship is a must if you want to succeed. But developer Sports Interactive is planning to take the game to a new level.

 

 

There's one feature that has been requested by many players and that Sports Interactive will add to the game in the future: women's football. It's about time that the popular football management series would take women's professional football into the spotlight. Even though we don't know if the developers plan to add the feature to Football Manager 2021 through an update or it's something that they plan to implement in the next installment of the series, we are sure that it will receive a warm welcome from the fans. 

It is yet to be determined how many professional women football teams and competitions will be licensed in Football Manager, but Sports Interactive has already acknowledged that it will require a lot of effort, as the studio's director has revealed in the official statement on this matter: 

 

“We know that adding women’s football to FM is going to cost in the millions and that the short-term return it delivers will be minimal. But that’s not the point. There’s no hiding that there’s currently a glass ceiling for women’s football and we want to do what we can to help smash through it.”

 

We will have to wait a bit longer until all this turns into something tangible but it's definitely a good start.
