Also, Football Manager 2024 Mobile will launch exclusively for Netflix members from November 6th. 

What this means is that, through Netflix’s global reach and membership base, more players than ever before can fast-track their way to footballing glory and benefit from the addition of four new languages to the game.

If you’re an existing player with a Netflix membership, you'll be able to find and install FM24 Mobile through the Netflix mobile app when the game launches in November. It will appear in a dedicated Games row on Apple phones and a separate Games tab on Android devices*. 

Players can still find FM24 Mobile on the App Store and Google Play, but you’ll need a Netflix account to login and begin your next journey to footballing greatness. 

If you’re not logged in to Netflix on your device, you will receive a sign-in prompt upon reaching the game’s loading screen. At this point you’ll either need to enter your Netflix account details or sign up for a new membership.

3. FM24 Console will be available on Xbox

FM24 Console will also be available through Xbox, Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC from November 6th. 

Xbox Game Pass for PC subscribers will also be able to enjoy the full immersion of the desktop classic.

4. FM24 will continue on the PlayStation 5 & Nintendo Switch platforms

Elsewhere, after a debut to remember earlier this year, Football Manager 2024 Console will be returning to PlayStation 5 for a second season. 

FM24 Touch is also returning to Nintendo Switch™ for another campaign, with further platform information to follow in the coming weeks.

Sports Interactive also revealed that Gameplay upgrades for the PC/Mac title will follow throughout the remainder of September. 

New features for FM24 Console and FM24 Mobile will drop during the week starting October 23rd, with FM24 Touch’s new additions set to be officially revealed in November.
