Football Favourite Comes to Your Local Pub

A new game based on the world's most successful football management game, and fastest selling PC game of last year, Football Manager, is coming to a pub, bar and club near you just in time for the 2006 World Cup.

Football Manager Quiz is due to be installed into over 15,000 venues in existing touch screen pub quiz machines including the hugely popular ITBox, Fatbox and Gamesnet networks. The game will feature 15,000 questions from easy to very hard, and will give players the chance to win cash prizes by using their football knowledge.

Football Manager Quiz has an intuitive footballing feel to it; on answering questions correctly the on-screen players pass the ball until it has reached the striker. Answering the striker's question correctly leads to the chance to score a goal and a prize.

Sports Interactive, the creators of the original Football Manager games, have been working with the developer Playbox & Fat Spanner for the last 12 months to create this incredibly addictive title. The style, theme and fun to be had that have made the brand so popular are all evident in Football Manager Quiz.

Machines will be updated over time to keep the questions topical, fresh and varied.

Miles Jacobson of Sports Interactive explains the potential of the game; "Football Manager Quiz is not only a great game in it's own right, it's also a fantastic way for us to get our brand in front of the target market. With so many venues having the machines, and the machines being so popular, it's the perfect way to introduce new people to the Football Manager brand, whilst entertaining them in a new way".
