Sky Sports introduce the first massively multi-player online football management game with over £25,000 worth of prizes up for grabs..

Launching 12 noon this Thursday (6th December) Sky Sport's revolutionary online football management game, Sky Sports Football Manager, gives would-be Alex Fergusons and Mike Bassetts everywhere the chance to manage their favourite club and compete against thousands of other hopefuls for major cash prizes, season tickets, trophies and the coveted Sky Sports Football Manager of the Year award.

The overall Sky Sports Football Manager of the Year will walk away with a cool £10,000. Trophies, major cash prizes, season tickets, matchday kits, PlayStation 2's and other great prizes will also be up for grabs for the top managers in each division as well as the most successful managers in the Champions League, UEFA Cup, FA Cup and the Charity Shield.

With Sky Sports Football Manager you can manage your favourite football team from any of the top five English leagues, whether it be Manchester United, Stoke City or Yeovil. The unique and truly compelling aspect of the game is the opportunity to join a broad and passionate online community, experiencing the emotions, banter and glory associated with the beautiful game.

Sky Sports Football Managers take control of their team in an online environment packed with thousands of other wannabe football bosses. Training, transfers and tactics are extremely realistic, and the skill, ability and behaviour of your players at the start of each season are fine-tuned to match their real-life counterparts. That's where you take over. Watch out, Sir Alex!

Sky Sports Football Manager launches online at 12 noon, Thursday, 6th December, with a retail version including three months free subscription available in all good gaming stores from Friday 7th December.
