SpecialEffect feature in Football Manager 2020

Back of the net! We’re hugely grateful yet again to Sports Interactive and SpecialEffect VP Miles Jacobson who’ve kindly donated advertising hoarding space for us for the newly-released Football Manager 2020

It’s been an honour to feature in the game over the years, and the inspirational bonus is that several disabled gamers have found out about us by clicking on the hoarding.

Alex, who has spinal muscular atrophy, is one of these gamers.

“Since the age of around 16, I’ve lost that ability to be able to use a regular keyboard, mouse or controller,” he said.

“But SpecialEffect have helped me get the most out of my computer experience, offering advice on what I could try. I made the decision to purchase my own eye gaze camera and I honestly don't know what I would do without one. It's one of the main ways I operate the computer – including playing video games!”

Thanks again, Sports Interactive, your gesture is making a very real difference!
