THE World’s most popular football management game has joined forces with the Baggies for the remainder of the 2015/16 season in an agreement which will see the iconic Football Manager branding feature on key assets at The Hawthorns, such as pitchside LED and interview backdrops.

Football Manager will also collaborate with the Club on creating opportunities to win copies of the title, details are below. 

The latest instalment of the Football Manager franchise will allow you to take control of any club from over 50 countries worldwide in what is the most realistic, in-depth and immersive football manager simulation available.

"We chose to partner with West Bromwich Albion because the Club represents everything that we like about football; it's deeply embedded in its community, but still enjoys a global reach," says Miles Jacobson, Studio Director of Sports Interactive. "The fact that there are quite a few Football Manager fans at the Club didn't do any harm either. We're looking forward to a successful season."

West Bromwich Albion's Head of Partnerships, George Harborne added: “We are delighted to be working with such an iconic brand and a true leader and innovator in their field with Football Manager 2016. Many will have already noticed the Football Manager branding during the matchday experience at The Hawthorns and we are pleased to now be able to announce this superb partnership formally.”
