Football Manager 2006 set for Easter kick-off

Fans of Sports Interactive’s legendary Football Manager series will be ‘happy bunnies’ this Easter as SEGA confirm the release of the platform-pioneering games Football Manager 2006 ready for the holidays on 13 April 2006.

Sports Interactive and SEGA have confirmed brand new Xbox Live features, adding a whole new dimension to multiplayer management. These features include an option allowing you to export your previously saved teams and go head-to-head with other human bosses competing in a 16-team knockout cup or 8-team league competition – arguments over whose team is best have just become a thing of the past.

You can also gauge your progress as a manager using Xbox 360’s new Gamerpoints system, which awards managers points for everything from signing your first player to going a whole season unbeaten.

In addition to this, the game arrives in time to include all of the January transfer window signings, maintaining the level of detail and realism that is the hallmark of the series.

The Easter period just got even busier for football!
