The football management game you play with friends and family is back. The official reboot of the 1980s classic Brian Clough's Football Fortunes.

A unique concept in football manager gaming, Football Fortunes is a board game that allows you to manage your club, playing squad, finances and tactics against your friends and also computer controlled teams while the companion apps take care of the fixtures, league tables, points earned, chance cards and more.

In the game you'll encounter all of the ups and downs of football management. React to various crises. Stave off bankruptcy. Sign the best players from the current Premier League crop of superstars. Out-think your opponents tactically. Improve your coach and youth team to become world beaters.

The skillset required to succeed will be varied and the hurdles challenging, just like they are in the real world! Can you conquer the Football Fortunes league and cups before storming the giants of European football?

The game includes:

176 Premier League player cards
A Classic 1980s player card pack featuring players from the original Brian Clough's Football Fortunes game
The game board
The free Football Fortunes companion app
Upgrade and bung tokens
Pointers for use on the game's deluxe Player Mats
In the game managers must:

Sign players to build a world class squad of players
Manage your clubs finances, avoiding bankruptcy!
Survive crises that will inevitably hit your club at some point through the game
Improve your Coach and bring through Youth Players from your Academy
Build up your staff so that you can go on Scouting Trips and more
Employ winning tactics in multiple competitions against different opponents. Are you a park the bus manager or an all out attacker? Do you adapt?
The manager who wins will be the one to have filled their cabinet with silverware. Go for glory!

What’s New

Version 1.1.2

This interim update is a fixer upper rather than a big changer featuring some additions and tweaks that we think will improve the game for everyone. We've a complete rebuild of the app underway, more to come on that very soon.

We’ve reduced the frequency of bung tokens appearing in Manager’s Luck and Selection Problems and the latest rules now state that managers can only hold one bung token at a time
We’ve added some new Manager’s Luck and Selection Problem cards replacing some that we felt and players had told us were irrelevant or plain daft

We’ve added two brand new Crisis cards to the mix taking the possible crises from three to five. Will they be even worse than losing your two best players in a car crash?

We’ve fundamentally changed how gate receipts work to stop managers from accumulating too much money through gate receipts and to stop managers getting unduly rewarded in the first season of a game

We fixed the UEFF cup bug and the bug that altered the order of play after cup wins and in the second season

Much more to come on the app updates very soon guys, we appreciate your patience.

Great fun for football fans

I used to play this for hours when it was ‘Brian Clough’s’ with my friends and now I can enjoy it with my children. Something different from sitting on a console, game play is excellent & gets everyone chatting/bantering. Different ways to succeed & hours of fun.
Would be good to play each team home and away in the league, 2 leg euro cups to make it more life like and maybe relegation but overall it is a great game to play with fellow football fans. Looking forward to the next update...

Great fun with our friends and kids

We played this over Christmas and it was great. Our kids play Football Manager 2020 a lot but they had great fun playing a football management game against each other for the first time. Recommended to all, even non football fans and novice board gamers.
