Championship Manager 2010 (PC)

Take total control with Championship Manager 2010, the leading name in football management simulations is back with a brand new look and a host of new features to bring the most loved sport in the world straight to your PC.

The fully animated, 3D match engine (featuring 500 fully motion captured animations per player) propels you right into the heart of the action on matchday, taking your management experience one step further. The only match engine specifically designed and created for a football management game allows you to watch the team in action as they put your carefully crafted tactics into action, view individual performances and be on hand to make changes when things go wrong.

It’s not just on the pitch Championship Manager has changed, 2010 brings players a host of never before seen features including; CM Season Live, Scouting Networks, Drill Training, Set-piece creator and video capture. For the first time ever start the game at key moments during the new season and face real world management challenges.

With a brand new interface and backed by a huge database with all the latest data, begin the journey to manage your team to success and bathe in glory.

Its coach is exceeded in all areas of the game by rival Football Manager, Eidos decided to ignore the last season and given another year to its developers for review under the bottom and make some innovations. The Coach 10 is the result of this development, two times longer than usual, a development that has a clean slate. A work that Eidos wanted to popularize the largest number leaving for several days, users set the price they wanted to buy the game.

The tree that hides the forest

Obviously it has the interface that first betrays the renewal of the series. More practice, more clear, it has become more effective, even if it came at the expense of a certain aesthetic. But as everyone knows, this is not the beautiful game that saves but effective. The interface is just like the tree that is hiding in the forest. The main innovation of the Coach is nestled in the updated full and permanent database.

Students teasing the teacher

The coach also took this year off to deepen its database; it is now 32 leagues that are playable, a little far from the master, Football Manager, with its fifty championships. The game avoids the frills, such as relations with journalists or fans to concentrate on the essentials: strategy and training.
Nothing but classic in management training, but a novelty nonetheless remarkable: the editor-kicks. You can now define the race of each player, rising, descending, these phases of play side drive, no innovation, but simple to manage the workload of each player, which cuts once again with his competitor.

Good bases then, but marred by some inconsistencies in the realism of the game transfers are far too simple to make, and a team from the bottom of the table in League 1 can attract players of the caliber of Trezeguet, Gallas or Gourcuff. Not very credible! Similarly, the scores make it a little too often pay tribute to the glorious uncertainty of sport.

Championship Manager 2010 Features

3D Match Engine

The match engine has undergone a radical overhaul with the result, a bespoke fully-animated match engine with over 500 individual player animations. Seven different camera angles, replays and the ability to record and re-watch matches means you will never miss any of the action unfolding on the pitch.

Created entirely from scratch at CM headquarters and designed specifically to bring the management experience to life, the Manager can now see how their decisions and instructions manifest themselves on the playing field in stunning three dimensional form.

Set Piece Creator

This brand new feature enables managers to create completely bespoke Set Pieces. You can call upon all the individual strengths of your squad members to produce the perfectly executed free kick.
The creator splits the set piece into a number of stages so managers can fine tune every crucial step from passing direction, cross/chips and runs to coordinating your defence when a corner is taken against you.

Scouting Network

Scouting for new players is now a much more accessible feature and attractive prospect in Championship Manager 2010. Managers are given a world map view of their knowledge of different countries and expenditure allocation.  Scouts report back the up and coming star players from around the world allowing you to dedicate more of your time to other areas. 

Drill Training

Managers can now set up drills to see how their players match up against each other – shooting, crossing, practice matches and much more all shown in the spectacular three dimensional match engine.

CM Season Live

This is the most exciting and innovative new feature to be unveiled in Championship Manager 2010 which we are especially proud of. A first in the football management genre, CM Season Live is a monthly downloadable update which brings you all the latest events from the world of football, dropping you into the action at key defining moments in the season.

Championship Manager Season Live is an additional monthly update that lets players download the real-world 09/10 football season data, at that point in time, and then take charge of their chosen club. All of the scores, competition standings, player transfers, player stats, bookings, major injuries, average ratings etc. from the ten leading countries in Europe, downloaded directly on a monthly basis throughout the season – full updates of 49 major leagues and competitions. CM Season Live starts on October 15th and will be available at monthly intervals for 6 months.

Mail and Media

A huge range of messaging in the game enables you to have far greater access to information and news from within the game’s world of football. Broadcasting real media references, the latest CM news system delivers in a wide variety of ways. The user gets all the information and news that’s relevant to their game in order to maximise their potential as a manager.

Dynamic Display Window

A dynamically updated display window brings a real world likeness to the user. Managers will be able to look out on the latest league tables, fixtures, top goal scorers and more from their in-game football world. Coverage from every part of the globe will appear throughout the game on every screen. It’s the complete picture.


An exclusive feature to the CM series, ProZone continues to evolve to enable users to access highly detailed, post-match analysis on their players. With full stats on their own team and the opposition, the manager has the complete picture of personal and team performances to aid their decisions.

Providing data on every pass, run, shot and more, ProZone is the analysis tool, putting CM in the real football world. Professional managers use ProZone on a daily basis. It doesn’t get any more real than this.


Thus we can draw some lessons on our players by viewing a 3D game that has such beautiful techniques, another is more blood. The coach is back in form, therefore, with great initiatives that will appeal to gamers tired of the static monopoly Football Manager, even if it lacks a bit of work to provide a complete game really.
