MCV’s reporting that Football Manager Live will launch on January 23, at a cost of £30.

The retail game comes complete with a whopping four months’ free play.

“Football Manager Live is a very different game to Football Manager – imagine a cross between Football Manager, fantasy league, eBay and social networking and you’ll be just about there,” said Sports Interactive boss Miles Jacobson.

“We’re targeting a slightly more mass market audience than with the Football Manager series. If FM is The Times’ sports section, then FM Live is the Daily Mirror’s sports section, and is the perfect game for the lapsed FM gamer who doesn’t have the time to put into FM Live’s older brother anymore.”
