I’m sure I read FM22 would include the womens game.

 

I can’t see it in my game, did I dream it or was it scrapped on the basis of no interest.

Imagine that starting a new career in Football Manager 2023 "You have selected men's fifty-three leagues from forty nations with a large database and you have selected zero women's league from no nations with a small database. You're a d*ckhead and you are a misogynist! The game will start in England in July 2022."

I would imagine plenty of girls and women who are interested in and involved in football, either for a living or as a hobby, would be very VERY interested. Do we want to keep the girl juniors somewhat potentially alianated while the boys get their FIFA's, PES's and FM's without even realizing what a privilege they are enjoying?

 

And I'm not saying all females have an issue with controlling male footballers or managing in men's football. But just think of how many male gamers are saying they are having trouble identifying with a female character in a plot-heavy adventure game, let alone a football simulation. More choice is not a bad thing is all I'm saying.

 

Just imagine the opposite: Imagine Miles and SI catering for female football only, and telling us men: “No, sorry. You won't have your leagues and teams to manage unless your side of the sport of football absolutely financially explodes into a huge business.” How would you feel about it?

 

Didn't the crazy Super League idea, that fortunately flopped, remind us that football in its purest form is about something other than greed and markets and finances? That it shouldn't be only measured in money, and it should be in some way made more accessible for us ALL?

 

I just don't see why we men and boys couldn't allow women and girls feel the same joy of playing FM through the leagues and players they strongly identify with (gender-wise), just as men most often identify/are interested in managing the men's football clubs & teams?

It certainly is no skin off my nose, and I want fans of women's football (men and women) to be able to have the opportunity to manage women's leagues in FM, because football is football, and at it's best its a sport, a form of human culture, and then something more. I want all people interested to be part of that magic.

well said sir

 

unfortunately modern football is all about greed and the EPL and UCL are the centre of it its just corporate avarice+ preening popinjay players its lost its soul a long time ago, at least the ladies game is more pure as you say

So, by the same logic if I don't include full Israeli leagues in my FM save I'd be in danger of being called out as a biggot who has something against Jewish people?

 

What I mean is: I don't think anyone really cares about or condemns your choice of leaving the OPTIONAL detailed womens' leagues unticked in your own FM save. 😉
