Fifa Manager 08

Easily accessible

The readily accessible Home screen and comprehensive on-screen help
system make it easy to get started. The freely configurable interface
provides you with all important information at a glance! Choose five
from a total of 20 Widgets to have all important data permanently in
view in a clearly laid-out format.

Even more content

Even more leagues, players, competitions (FIFA Confederations Cup, FIFA
U-20 World Cup, plus various international club competitions). Also new
is a large database containing more than 75,000 historical results from
various leagues!

A powerful editor is included in the game.

Regional content

A main focus of FIFA MANAGER 08 lies on regional content: This ranges
from a total of 24 Spanish leagues to the Spanish nomination system,
includes the 6th English league level and realistic financing by big
international investors.

New stadium editor

An easy-to-use stadium editor that uses a modular construction system
with over 400 elements enables you to build ultra-realistic stadiums.
Create absolutely unique dream stadiums in a matter of minutes.

"Real" scouting

For the first time in the history of the FIFA MANAGER series, players
must really be scouted, otherwise the stats of players from other clubs
are hidden or shown as rough estimates. Agencies and a capable staff
help you in your work. This feature makes the transfer market even more
realistic and exciting.

Dressing-room chemistry

Here the emphasis is on communication with the players. With this
feature you can make the players short-term ("You're playing
tomorrow!") or long-term promises ("I'll make an international player
out of you!"). But be careful - if you don't keep your promises, your
players' motivation and your personal reputation will suffer.

Also new: The players can now confront you as their manager directly
and demand time on the pitch, a different shirt number, the captain's
armband, or the job of penalty-taker.

Transfer market

Here you can offer your own players to other clubs directly, make
long-term promises when you sign players, and use the option "Last
Word" in negotiations. All this and 25 further improvements provide an
absolutely realistic atmosphere.

New screen resolution

The screen has been optimized for a resolution of 1280x1024 to provide a better overview (other resolutions are also supported).


FIFA MANAGER 08 offers you a completely revamped training system with a
player analysis tool. Monitor the development of each of your players
in every area on a weekly basis. Use modern methods to tailor a
personal training schedule for each player! Choosing and practicing
specific set pieces for the 3D-matches is important to ensure that your
team is well prepared for the next opponent.


Now once again there are realistic pre-match, post-match, TV studio and
press conference interviews. Experience the feeling of being in the
public spotlight and managing a top club!

3D matches

Higher resolution, more detailed textures, more attractive stadiums,
better visualisation of the players' skills, improved passing – good is
now even better.


The new Series tool analyzes the game world each day and searches for
interesting events. Whether a team has won 10 penalty shoot-outs in a
row, or a player has scored seven goals in consecutive matches, you'll
find it here!

The analysis covers more than 150 different types of series.

New features

There are tons of new and innovative features: Simulation mode (where
you can simulate 20 seasons overnight), set up youth camps all over the
world (simply choose the country and location), a Hall of Fame for top
players, a 24- hour ticker for transfers at the last moment at the end
of the transfer window, test matches against your own amateur and youth
teams, 20 personal prizes for you as manager (for example the golden
Key to the city), and more.

Season history/ Europe in comparison

Now with even more statistics and overviews of the course of the season
– from the FIFA/Coca- Cola world rankings to changes in the All-Time
Table. From the best youth players to analysis of the preparation of
all clubs. A special, new statistics area allows you to compare
important data between the European top leagues at any time.
