Everton FC has effectively signed the database behind SI Games’ Football Manager 2009, giving manager David Moyes access to details on over 370,000 players and staff.
“The game’s database is a valuable resource with the most extensive scouting network in football so Everton FC is making a top signing,” said game creator Paul Collyer.
“I am personally delighted with today’s announcement as I’m a Toffees fan. Standing on the pitch with my signing on shirt is as close to my boyhood dream of playing at Goodison Park as I will ever get.”
“We’ve known for a while that teams use the game to research certain players, whether to buy or to check out the opposition, but this formal recognition by a premiership team is fantastic and we are sure it will prove a fruitful one for the Everton FC,” studio director Miles Jacobsen added.
It’s a funny old game.
