Football Manager © 1982 Addictive Games.
Soccer management simulation.
Football Manager was the first soccer management simulation.
Toms developed the first game on a Video Genie, a clone of the Tandy TRS-80. This was a text only game. It was converted to the Sinclair ZX80 and ZX81 and Toms created the software label Addictive Games to launch the game in 1982. It was then ported to the ZX Spectrum with added animated graphics showing match highlights.
The game was a huge success and was ported to a wide range of systems between 1984 and 1987
