Sega’s announced that Football Manager 2011 is now available on iPad.

The game will feature 11 leagues with 34 playable divisions, a tactics system that is “easy to use,” player training, social integration via Twitter, an in-game tutorial and more, as well as a “car/stadium finder,” which will let users find where they “parked their car, or got off the train or bus, to football grounds in England, Scotland, France, Italy, Germany & Spain and back again.”

All data in FM2011 is up to date with that from the January transfer window, meaning rosters and line-ups will be available from that point. Players do have the option to start the game from the beginning of the current season with the correct data at that point, though.

For those who have the game already on iPhone and iPad, a free update is available to support iPad, making it a universal app. Otherwise, it’s £6.99 or €9.99 for the pleasure.
