Football manager is an incredibly intricate game that encourages you to just keep going. One more game, one more decision, until it’s well into the night and you’re wondering where your free time has gone. The reason why so many fans around the world love the game is that it allows you to delve deep into your favourite sport, but unless you are actively working to bring football to life in your own routine, you are doing yourself a disservice.
There are so many ways to get involved with the game, and spicing up your routines can help give you a better appreciation for the game.
Connect with Similar Fans to Watch Games
Soccer, though in this article we will refer to it as football in honor of the game we all love, is not nearly as popular in the United States as it is anywhere else in the world, which can often make fans feel like they’re out of the pack. Find people near you who love the game. Connect online through social media channels and go together to a local sports bar to watch the games. Invite your own friends along to get them involved with the game, and you’ll have a great social outing to keep up to date with what your beloved players are doing, and you can use that information to make your FM game more immersive and realistic.
Keep an Eye Out for Tickets to Games Near You
This group of people you go with to watch the games on the television should be your go-to when seeing a live game. Keep an eye open for MLS games on ticketsales.com and swoop in to snag them as soon as you can. Subscribing to alerts is a good way to stay up to date with the fixtures, so you always know when a game is on in your area.
Join a Local Team
Being a spectator or a digital manager is fun, but it’s time to get back into shape, and you will want to do that by finding and joining a local team. These will be people who want to stay in shape and love the game and are very likely people you will be great friends with.
Set Challenges to Make FM More Interesting
Getting out there and enjoying your favourite game up close and in person is a great way to spice up your life, but if you are looking for more ways to make your downtime on FM more interesting, there are a few great challenges you can set for yourself. Take a team in one of the lowest leagues and improve them over time until you finally win the top league’s title. You can limit yourself to only youth development, or only use players from the country you choose in a national challenge.
There are so many ways that you can bring your love of football and Football Manager to life. From finding a community of football fans to playing it, to making your FM campaign more interesting.
