ProZone is regarded as the ultimate performance analysis tool. Developed in collaboration with the top coaches in the game, it uses unique technology to retrieve positional and statistical data on every movement, of every player, every 1/10th of a second. Praised by management heavyweights such as Arsene Wenger, Alex Ferguson and England's Steve McClaren, ProZone is fast becoming the analysis tool of all leading football managers.

"ProZone offers total support when visually explaining the strategy and tactics employed by managers and coaches.There is no better tool in football today, for managers to gather a wealth of tactical information on their own team as well as for scouting opposition strengths and weaknesses. What better alliance could there be for Championship Manager?" said David Rutter, Studio Manager, Beautiful Game Studios.

Championship Manager 2007 is a totally new iteration of the best-selling football management simulation. ProZone is a Match Analysis Tool, which provides an 'under the bonnet' reveal of statistical information relevant to every player and every game including; goals scored, runs made, shots/passes/tackles made or failed.

Championship Manager 2007 allows you to manage your club to glory, dealing with everything from tactics and training to transfers - everything you would expect a real-life football manager to do without owning a sheepskin coat.
