The Draft


In April 2018, 64 Football Manager players participated in the first ever Football Manager World E-Sports Championship at Insomnia 62, all competing for the £15,000 first prize along with the chance to manage Norwich City Legends against Inter Milan Forever in a fixture that included the likes of Bryan Gunn, Darren Eadie, Efan Ekoku, Jurgen Klinsmann, Javier Zanetti and Francesco Toldo.



That tournament was won by none other than Daniel Fry aka @fryman7, where he narrowly defeated Mario Fontan in the final after a grueling weekend of FM action and was presented with the FMWEC prize by none other than CM/FM legend Cherno Samba.



One year later, 21 guys have gotten together to battle out an FM19 Draft League – rather than everyone having to be online at the same time as is normally the case for a Football Manager online game, the draft was completed using a Google Sheet whereby players took turns to select players in each round. The draft was completed over a 5 day period whereby all 21 managers have built a team of 20 players that each will feel are strong enough to reign supreme at the end of the 40 game competition.
