With that in mind, we want to take a look at all the latest information we know about the FM23 Beta.

FM23 Beta

As ever, Football Manager 2023 will almost certainly include a Beta version of the game, giving gaffers the chance to test the game before full release.

The Football Manager 2023 Beta will likely arrive two weeks before the game's full release, with a confirmed release date of November 8.

BIGGER THAN EVER - Football Manager 2022 launched on more platforms than ever last year

As well as giving gaffers the chance to test the game before everyone else, the Beta is an important window of opportunity used to report any bugs or issues with the game before full release.


Early Bird

The Football Manager 2022 Beta was exclusively available to those who pre-ordered the game, and we are expecting this to be the case this year as well.

It remains to be seen whether pre-ordering Football Manager 2023 will have any extra benefits, but you can be sure that being the first to experience the game is enough temptation for many.

Release Date

Whilst there is no current confirmed release date for Football Manager 2023, we are expecting the game to launch at a similar time to FM22.

Football Manager 2022 released on 8 November 2021, and we are expecting FM23 to follow in these footsteps with an early-November release date.

With the Beta arriving two weeks before, we are anticipating a late October arrival.


FM23 New Features

Football Manager 2022 brought us a host of brand new features, and we expect FM23 to bring another round of major upgrades.

Women's Football

Women's football is confirmed to be arriving in Football Manager, we just don't know when.

Football Manager 2023 was mooted as a potential point of arrival for the women's game, but we'll have to wait and see if that comes to fruition.
