For those of you in the UK, the brand new TV advert for Football Manager 2012 will be showcased for the first time on Friday, but you can see it if you are watching any of this weekend’s big matches on Sky Sports & ESPN.
However as you’re a big fan of Football Manager, the least we can do is allow you a sneak preview!
In addition to the standard 20 second ad, we are running 5 bespoke ads tailored to key fixtures. The first of these will be run just before the biggest fixture happening on Saturday. Of course, it’s Liverpool V Manchester United. The bespoke versions will only be able to watch on TV, so look out for them!
We’re proud to be partnering with one of our favourite bands in the advert – Hard-Fi. Their track – Bring It On - brings the trailer to life and is available now on iTunes as a track on their brand new album, Killer Sounds.
We hope you like it.
