June 14th, 2018

Sports Interactive™ and SEGA® are delighted to announce the immediate release of FMdB™, a new app that gives you access to the world’s largest football database in your pocket. FMdB is available now as a free download on the App Store and Google Play.

Powered by Football Manager, FMdB includes data on more than 400,000 players from across the world of football, giving a quick guide to their ability, potential, contract details and position. For those that subscribe to the app, there is additional information about each players’ attributes, career history and more. You can keep tabs on the players that are making the headlines with the app’s ‘Trending’ section and share player profiles with friends via social media. In addition, there is a host of nation and club information including each team’s best 25 players, sorted by ability.

“FMdB is the ultimate football knowledge app, essential for the information that you need ahead of what promises to be a fantastic summer of football and beyond,” said Sports Interactive’s Studio Director, Miles Jacobson. “If you’re unsure how good the player is playing at right back, or who the midfielder is your team is looking at in the transfer window, FMdB gives you that information at the press of a button – it’s time to be properly in-the-know.”

Further updates to FMdB are planned over the coming weeks and months into the start of the European football season.
