Sports Interactive launches Football Manager Handheld for Android on April 11


In December last year while Sports Interactive were preparing to launch Football Manager on iOS devices, when asked if the game will be available on Android, Miles Jacobson, Studio Director at Sports Interactive answered saying that they are considering the possibility.

“Well there’s a problem with the Android platform at the moment. I’d love to be on Android but the market has historically been so fragmented. I actually saw some interesting stats last week that at long lost the latest versions of the OS are now showing at least 50% of penetration which is something that wasn’t the case three or four months ago.”

The evaluation and consideration period has expired today when Sports Interactive issued a press release announcing the availability of Football Manager Handheld for Android starting on Wednesday, April 11th. So football fans get ready to start managing your own teams because there are 12 leagues to play and many players to transfer.
