Football Manager 2020 Features

In this exciting new game, you can start in any one of fifty countries and choose to oversee a club from more than two thousand available.

You have to suffer the consequences of your decisions, whether they are positive or negative. Some of the newer and exciting features you can use on FM20 are listed below.

Club Vision

With the help of Club Vision, the board’s expectations won’t just be put out, but they will also lay out the steps for the team to progress during the season. You have to meet the requirements of the board and strengthen the team and club’s identity during the season. Club Vision consists of three parts:

  • Ongoing Objects
  • Club Culture
  • Five Year Plan

Ongoing Objectives are things the board will expect you to maintain, such as long-standing club traditions. Club Culture is a set of objectives that are important to the board just as much as how well you’ll hit your season expectations.
