FOOTBALL MANAGER 2011 REVEALS SOCIAL MEDIA FEATURES

Release Date Confirmed as November 9, 2010
SAN FRANCISCO (September 27th, 2010) – Sports Interactive and SEGA of America announced today that the PC version of Football Manager™ 2011 will include the ability to publish achievements and goals to social networking sites, and will have a new camera angle for the 3D match view.

The 2011 version of the award-winning Football Manager series will introduce the ability to upload videos from the hugely improved Match Engine directly to a YouTube account. This will also include videos from the new match engine camera angle, dubbed the “TV camera” due to it being a moving and more zoomed in camera, much like you’d see when watching a match on TV.

Via Twitter, managers can set manual or automatic updates of achievements to their Twitter account, whilst STEAM users can publish over 80 achievements to a personal virtual manager’s office on www.footballmanager.com as well as their STEAM profiles.

Video highlight uploading with the new camera view is already in action and can be seen on Sports Interactive’s YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/sigamesofficial now.

Today’s new features announcement follows the reveal of over a dozen headline features over the last two weeks, a complete list of which can be found at www.footballmanager.com
All budding football managers will be happy to hear that the highly anticipated Football Manager™ 2011, for PC and Apple Macintosh and Football Manager Handheld™ 2011 for Sony PlayStation® Portable will be released on November 9th.
