Championship Manager 5 is the most realistic and engaging version ever, with major developments in the match engine, tactics and training. CM5 will deliver the same depth and detail as before, yet with much faster loading and gameplay. The simulation uses multiple data sources – fan scouts, internal researchers and professional agencies including OptaTM – to ensure greater objectiveness and accuracy of data than ever before.

Exclusive partners such as Fanfare Events, Betfair, Sports Soccer and Shoot Magazine have teamed up with Championship Manager to offer fantastic football-related prizes and special offers, and World Soccer is providing a news feed to keep fans up-to-date with footballing news from around the world.

For Championship Manager enthusiasts, the site hosts a number of community forums - which have over 40,000 registered users - where fans from all over the world can discuss the game and get in touch with the game's developers to pass on suggestions.

The site also offers regular Championship Manager 5 downloads, updates on the game's development, and the opportunity for users to create their own Championship Manager "blog" enabling them to create their own pages.

John Webb, Eidos' brand director for Championship Manager says, "As well as being the indispensable guide to all things Championship Manager, we want the site to be a destination for general football fans. Football and Champ Man fans alike will be impressed by how much the site has to offer, especially the new "blog" section allowing users to create their very own online community."
