Eidos Interactive recently announced the Spring 2006 release of Championship Manager 2006 for the PC. The latest in the popular soccer management sim series will feature a wide range of new features and is described as "the most realistic version to date."

A few of the game's features:

Championship Manager 2006 boasts a brand new Gameplan™ 3D match engine, where players can watch their match unfold in the same way they watch the match on TV – but with the ability to adjust tactics, player positions or formations – or simply use the Highlight Filter to select the moments they want to watch.

Interact with your squad as you speak with your players for the first time: make promises to individual players to improve their mood or form. But as in real life, if promises are broken, trust is lost and there are consequences – with the new player status screen, monitor the mood and form of every player.

Championship Manager 2006 now offers the ability to scout in depth with its new ‘Simulate world’ option. For the first time, users will be able to view authentic player’s performance stats outside the nation managed, all with no noticeable speed reduction! Scouting will never be the same again.
There is currently no word on the possibility of a Mac port of CM 2006 but it seems likely given Feral Interactive's history of porting previous titles in the series.

The following quote from an Ask Feral feature posted on IMG earlier this year also suggests the strong possibility of a Mac version:

Question: What happened to the heavy hints of a new football game (I guess Championship Manager) on your website a month or so ago? - John Travers

Answer: Hints? What hints?? As all football fans know, the role of a manager is to make the difficult decisions that affect the lives of their players and the success of the team. Suffice to say that far from being relegated, one of our star players is merely on the bench. After all, there's always next season, eh? In fact, we looked long and hard at Championship Manager 5 and decided that it did not meet the same level of quality that the previous games in the series had achieved. We decided rather than spoil that track record, it was better to sit this season out and wait for next years much improved (we hope) version.

Who cares about Championship Manager anymore? The developers of Football Manager 2005 and 2006, already released for Mac/PC, were the original developers of the Championship Manager series. The new Championship Manager series has no connection with any of the Championship Manager games that were released for the Mac.
