Football Manager Adding Women's Football

Sports Interactive and SEGA announce plans to bring women's football to the Football Manager series of soccer/association football games. Word is: "The result of this landmark work will not be a standalone women's football management simulation. Instead, women's football will be fully incorporated into FM's living, breathing world, with managers able to take control of either men's or women's clubs and move between them seamlessly." This will not even remotely happen overnight, as it is described as a "multi-year project." In a blog post on the Football Manager Website, Miles Jacobson delves into the details on the plan. Here's an overview:
Sports Interactive™ and SEGA® Europe Ltd. can today proudly announce that work has started on a multi-year project to bring women's football into its iconic Football Manager™ series.

The result of this landmark work will not be a standalone women's football management simulation. Instead, women's football will be fully incorporated into FM's living, breathing world, with managers able to take control of either men's or women's clubs and move between them seamlessly.

The studio has not set a definitive date for when the project will be completed; but the intention is to incorporate the women's game as soon as realistically possible. Sports Interactive's development team is committed to ensuring that women's football is represented as authentically as possible and with the level of realism and attention to detail that the series is renowned for and will not announce a launch date until these standards have been met.
