Championship Manager series

Group Description

The brainchild of the Collyer Brothers (Paul and Oliver), Championship Manager became the most popular football (soccer) management series during the 1990s, mostly thanks to the gigantic database that allowed many gamers born in countries outside the leagues usually covered by managing games (England, Spain, Germany, Scotland, Italy and France) the chance to coach their favourite clubs.

In 2004, Sports Interactive split with Eidos, which allowed Eidos to retain the name, and SI the database (which was used in their fresh new franchise, Football Manager. Development on the franchise was taken over by Beautiful Game Studios.

In October 2008, Beautiful Game Studios General Manager Roy Meredith admitted that the franchise had suffered due to poor quality, lacked vision, and direction since the original team Sports Interactive left the series, with a promise to turn that around.
