Football Chairman has become one of the App Store's biggest-selling soccer games, with over two million downloads and a rating of 4.5 out of 5 from tens of thousands of reviews.
The concept is simple - build a football club from scratch, starting as a tiny non-league team, and see if you can make it through seven divisions to the very top. Hire and fire managers, develop your stadium, negotiate transfers and contracts... while keeping the fans and the bank manager happy. Good luck - you'll need it!

Yes, you can continue your career from the free app by saving it to our servers and then loading it up in the Pro app.
Yes, you can. Saved games are compatible between different devices, including from Android to iOS and vice-versa.
If you saved the game on our servers then the saved game(s) will definitely still be there - the only reason they wouldn't show is if the email or password were spelt incorrectly either when you originally typed them or the second time round.
The most common reason for this happening is when people mis-type their original password without realising. If you've tried various combinations and still can't find your saved games, fill in our contact form (by clicking the "envelope" icon below) and we'll check the database for you.
The first thing to check is whether in-app purchases are actually allowed on your device. To do this, go to Settings > General > Restrictions.
If there are no restrictions in place, then rebooting your phone often solves the problem. You may also need to sign out and back in to your iTunes account.
Although the game disables your device's 'back' button, most Android devices have a 'Home' button somewhere that allows you to return to your main phone screen. Alternatively your device may also have a 'task manager' button that enables you to switch between apps.
Close the app down completely and try relaunching it. If that doesn't work, try rebooting your device and then relaunching the app. If it still doesn't work, try uninstalling the app then download it again from the app store. Please note though - uninstalling should always be the last resort because you will lose any unsaved game data.
This issue affected a small number of Android devices, but the latest updated version of the app should now fix it. Please go to the Google Play store and download the updated version (1.4.1 or above).
If that doesn't work, you may need to completely uninstall/delete the app before installing the latest version. After that, hopefully everything should work as normal.
This issue affects a very tiny number of devices, normally iPhone 6 or 6S, and appears to be a hardware issue rather than anything in the code of the game. Luckily there is an easy fix:
If anyone receives a suspicious email claiming to be from Football Chairman or Apple and requesting any bank or personal details, they should delete it immediately without clicking any of the links or attachments.
This is a common phishing scam email which uses the name of popular apps to fool people into entering their bank details.
At Football Chairman we don't handle any payment transactions ourselves. All purchases are dealt with securely by the app stores: Apple, Google or Amazon. We never have access to anybody's bank or card information, and will never send an email requesting any personal or financial details.
