6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Sports Interactive recently revealed work on Football Manager Live, a new MMO for PC and Mac. The game will allow players to create and manage their own custom team in competition against up to 1,000 other players. FM Live will take advantage of Football Manager's 2D match engine and offer the usual wealth of options and tactics.

Football Manager Live is a brand new concept in football management and allows you to build a club from scratch to compete against friends and rivals online for the ultimate in Football Manager bragging rights. Itís the definitive test of football management skills, allowing you to set-up mini-leagues amongst your friends, bid in player auctions and compete in live matches 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Matches take place in real-time with a range of tactical options for managers to control as they follow all the action via the realistic 2D match engine. In addition, the in-game chat option means managers can exchange comments on the virtual touchline, whilst other aspiring managers can view their competitors and learn their tactics.

"Imagine a cross between Football Manager, fantasy sports and auctions sites - and you are part of the way to understanding Football Manager Live," said Miles Jacobson, managing director of Sports Interactive.

"It's great to be able to announce the game, and we can't wait to see the reaction to the beta when it launches next month."
The Mac version of Football Manager Live will weigh in at a modest 15MB. A beta test is planned for May, with the final version slated for release in March 2008.
