The company that created Football Manager 2020 have released details of how to play the game for free, until March 25th.

The news will come as a welcome surprise to many house-bound fans that their time in self-isolation might be to a football club's benefit.

Nathan Murphy, here are the details you need:

It is some time now since Off The Ball's Nathan Murphy had the required down-time to pursue once more his dreams of Championship Manager 01/02 success.

"I used to be an addict as many of our viewers undoubtedly have been over the years," he admitted on Monday's OTB AM. "When I first met my wife, I got her to break the CD just to stop me from playing it.

"But part of me actually thinks, maybe the best thing now is to get back into Championship Manager! You can get so into it that it will just take your mind off everything else.

"Suddenly, I'm not worrying about the real world, I'm wondering is Cherno Samba going to be fit?"

If you, like Nathan, are countenancing the idea of making a return to the Championship Manager 01/02 universe, you'll be thrilled to know that you can download it and play it for free right now!

How to play Championship Manager 01/02 for free

Through the likes of FM Scout and FM Blog fans of the game have been able to relive or recreate their past glories for years now. The inventiveness of some keen players even allows you play with today's players in the old format.

Without even requiring the burden of locating a copy of the CD, the game is perfectly legal to download and only needs fairly minimal work to get up and running on your modern laptop.
