Football Chairman has become one of the App Store's biggest-selling soccer games, with over one million downloads and a rating of 4.5 out of 5 from tens of thousands of reviews.
The concept is simple - build a football club from scratch, starting as a tiny non-league team, and see if you can make it through seven divisions to the very top. Hire and fire managers, develop your stadium, negotiate transfers and contracts... while keeping the fans and the bank manager happy. Good luck - you'll need it!

If anyone receives a suspicious email claiming to be from Football Chairman or Apple and requesting any bank or personal details, they should delete it immediately without clicking any of the links or attachments.
This is a common phishing scam email which uses the name of popular apps to fool people into entering their bank details.
At Football Chairman we don't handle any payment transactions ourselves. All purchases are dealt with securely by the app stores: Apple, Google or Amazon. We never have access to anybody's bank or card information, and will never send an email requesting any personal or financial details.
Yes, you can import saved games from earlier versions of Football Chairman into the newer apps - for instance from FC Lite into Football Chairman or FC Pro, or from Football Chairman into FC Pro.
Please note that all imported games will begin at the start of a new season, even if your game was saved mid-season. This is so that the new game can add any additional data that wasn't included in the earlier version.
Yes, you can. Saved games are compatible between different devices, including from Android to iOS and vice-versa.
If you saved the game on our servers then the saved game(s) will definitely still be there - the only reason they wouldn't show is if the email or password were spelt incorrectly either when you originally typed them or the second time round.
The most common reason for this happening is when people mis-type their original password without realising. If you've tried various combinations and still can't find your saved games, fill in our contact form and we'll check the database for you.
This issue affects a small number of iOS devices - rebooting your device and then relaunching the app seems to fix the problem.
This affects a small number of iOS devices which have got in-app purchase restrictions turned on. Turning the restrictions off should fix the issue - to do this, go to your device's "Settings" app, then "General > Restrictions".
If that doesn't work, you can try turning off the app's vector stadium graphics. Click the spanner icon (top right of the screen) and then click the "Preferences" button at the bottom. Scroll to the bottom of the Preferences page and you should see an option to turn off the Vector Stadium Graphics.
The first thing to check is whether in-app purchases are actually allowed on your device. To do this, go to Settings > General > Restrictions.
If there are no restrictions in place, then rebooting your phone often solves the problem. You may also need to sign out and back in to your iTunes account.
Although the game disables your device's 'back' button, most Android devices have a 'Home' button somewhere that allows you to return to your main phone screen. Alternatively your device may also have a 'task manager' button that enables you to switch between apps.
Close the app down completely and try relaunching it. If that doesn't work, try rebooting your device and then relaunching the app. If it still doesn't work, try uninstalling the app the download it again from the app store. Please note though - uninstalling should always be the last resort because you will lose any unsaved game data.
