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 players) 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.

With the development of a comprehensive training suite, managers can fine tune their tactics and their players. Fully customisable schedules, and numerous different drills, means managers can put individual players through their paces and then watch training unfold in full 3D glory.

With a brand new interface and backed by a huge database with all the latest data from the 2009 campaign, begin the journey to manage your team to success and bathe in glory.

3D Match Engine

  • Championship Manager 2010's match engine has undergone a radical overhaul with the prize, a bespoke fully-animated match engine. Created entirely in-house at CM headquarters and designed specifically to bring the management experience to life, the manager now has the perfect viewpoint from which to observe their Matchday instructions taking place on the pitch.
  • News & Media

    • A whole 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 all the news that's relevant to their game.

    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.

    Manager Mail & Reports

    • By filtering mail messages managers get only the news they want. Plus, managers now also have the opportunity to select from a number of regular in-game reports that matter to their situation, whether it be other match reports or stats on players and other teams.


    • 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 so he can make the big decisions.

     Unbelievable Rubbish!! Should be zero stars!

    The 3D match engine is pointless - Championship defenders fall over like they've been down the pub before the game. Goalkeepers at English Championship level are worse than Sunday League goalkeepers.

    What's the point of a 3D match engine that isn't enjoyable to watch. Football Manager 2010 is a million times better than this rubbish, even FM2006 is much more enjoyable to play!

    The user interface is unfriendly, players are overrated so badly that their value is up to 10 times higher than what they're actually worth, and that's at the statup of the game!

    Don't buy this rubbish, FM2010 is better than FM2009, and every version of FM is better than this utter tripe!

     Addictive but far from perfect

    Most people seem to love it or hate it. I could almost love it, but not quite.

    1. It crashes to desktop too often.
    2. I can't understand the training schedules.
    3. The menu where you perform most actions is very clumsy, too small and not at all ergonomic.
    4. 3D match engines - well, they're never any good are they? In this one, too many frustrating things happen, like players running away from the ball or dribbling it out into touch when under no pressure.
    5. During a match, the 3D engine takes up the whole screen so you can't see the commentary or important messages from your assistant.
    6. As far as I can see, you can't offer players to other teams unless they're already interested.
    7. I invested in scouting many other countries, and the scout reports became too much like hard work. I would have liked to be able to say - don't tell me about the same player more than once. Don't tell me about players over 30. Etc etc - filters to cut down the amount of messages in my inbox.
    8. Physio report bug - No matter how many times I request a physio report on a player, I never get one.
    9. It's not easy enough to get players to switch positions.

    Good points.
    1. You can run it windowed.
    2. Wasn't too slow even on my laptop. Admittedly it's a core2duo laptop with 4 gig of ram, but even so it's a laptop.
    3. Addictive.

    If they cured all the faults it would be a great game. Even if they just cured the crashing it would be good. If you do buy it, remember to save game often. I can't help thinking that if this game had been a labour of love, it would not have taken much extra effort to make it really shine. For whatever reason, they've left it full of bugs with a lame front end.

     Do not buy - Wait for FM2010

    Up until the last few years i have alway been a massive CM fan, Downloaded the Demo, and found it was basically the same as the last 2 games realeased . Which i had major issues with. Since Eidos and SI games parted company CM games are just not the same. Stick to FM2010, as i am doing. Will never to back to play the Championship Manager games unless, it is drastically improved.

     Decent game, but no more than that.

    I thought I'd take advantage of buying CM2010 for £2.51 and, frankly, that's all it's worth. The benchmark for manager games is obviously the Football Manager series and with Football Manager 2009 being released so buggy last year, I wanted to give Championship Manager a shot, makes me wish I didn't.

    I gave it plenty of time and effort, player stats are WAY off for a lot of players, some results are just weird and crazy and most annoyingly, players are smaller teams don't often seem to want to join larger teams.

    I managed Rangers, and lets face it, in Scotland, any player outside the Old Firm would jump at the chance of joining Rangers or Celtic, and NOBODY would join me from Scottish teams, strangely, I could buy from pretty major European clubs though, it made no sense to me.

    I pre-ordered Football Manager 2010 here on Play, so going to look forward to that for my Football Managing needs.

     love it - stick to what you like and let people decide.
