SEGA and Sports Interactive have announced that the latest instalment in the Football Manager series is on sale from today after "certain retail outlets" chose not to stick to the official release date.

Football Manager 2007 was due to hit the shelves on Friday. But according to an official statement issued by the two companies, "The official street date for Football Manager 2007 on PC / Mac has been brought forward to Wednesday, October 18th."

The decision has been taken "as a result of certain retail outlets ignoring the official release date of October 20th".

The statement concludes: "SEGA and Sports Interactive have acted to ensure that Football Manager 2007 is available to all of our loyal fans. We are in the process of communicating this new date to all of our retail partners."
