Football management games are some of the ways that you can enjoy the popular games on simulation but from a different aspect. Rather than pass, kick and score, you are in charge of the whole squad. A football manager game simulates the efforts that go into creating winning teams. As the football manager, you decide which tactics to employ, which players to buy or sell and who makes the team, among many other critical decisions. Over the years football manager games have evolved dramatically, and now you can play some on mobile.
Top Eleven: Football Manager
It was the first football management game with a cross-platform feature – allowing players to engage with Facebook friends. You get to sell and buy players in real time, build a stadium with all the facilities your team needs and make friendly matches. The game also gives managers a chance to motivate their players by giving them skill points.
ManagerZone is the most successful brand in this genre. The mobile version offers a simple layout that allows players to manage their teams by tracking their finances, tactics and members. It comes complete with challenges where a manager has to deal with a crisis to help the team.
