Go From Game Pass to Game Day With Xbox, Football Manager & Bromley FC
In the UK, no football fan is alone in thinking they would make the perfect manager, and now The Everyday Tactician campaign is giving the Xbox and Football Manager community a chance to make these dreams a reality.
To celebrate the launch of Football Manager 2024, available on PC or console with Game Pass, one passionate FM24 player will have the chance to swap Game Pass for game day and become Vanarama National League club Bromley FC’s next ’Support Performance Tactician’.
Football Manager is a hugely popular series of football management simulation games, developed by British developer Sports Interactive. To achieve success in the game, players will count on their understanding of football tactics.
In the year of the game’s 20th anniversary, one knowledgeable armchair manager will become part of the backroom staff at Bromley FC from January 2024 until the end of the current season; taking their in-game expertise of analysing opponents’ formations, tactical set ups and player skills into the real world of the Vanarama National League.
As part of their fully paid, full-time role, The Everyday Tactician will have the opportunity to learn all the ins and outs of the tactical decision-making that goes into preparing a football team for success, in what could yet be a landmark season for the club.
Residents of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (aged 18 or over) will have the chance to apply for the role by winning any domestic league with a team in FM24 on PC with PC Game Pass or Game Pass Ultimate, and on console with Game Pass for Console or Game Pass Ultimate, and submitting a video explaining why they would be the right candidate for the role. Applications are open from November 14 to December 4, 2023.
Once the winner has been chosen, fans will be able to follow their journey at the club online and on social media via Bromley F.C., Football Manager and Xbox UK channels, as well as TNT Sports, so keep your eyes peeled on social for more details in the coming weeks.
