Sports Interactive and Eidos have today confirmed that Championship Manager: Season 01/02 for the Xbox is due for release later this month.


After a floodlight failure which caused the a sudden return to the dressing rooms, we've heard that the match is back on, and Championship Manager 01/02 is just tieing it's laces before taking dashing down the tunnel, for a late April kick off.

The Xbox version of the hugely popular PC title will feature a re-designed interface with quick screen navigation, to make the game easy to play when being controlled with a pad instead of a mouse, along with all of the in-depth statistical information that Championship Manager has become so renowned for, in all 26 leagues from around the world, with full profiles and history about each of the 100,000 players, managers and coaches.

Other features which will make Champ Manager on the Xbox more of a crowd puller than a London Derby, include new EU regulated transfer system, the latest competitions, awards, transfer and disciplinary rules for 2001/2, plus all the major international tournaments along with B-team and Under 21 management opportunities.

If that's not enough, you now also get feedback from local and national press on how your team, and you as the manager, is performing, and what the general public think of your skills, or lack of. Players will also tell you what they think of you, either complaints, or even the occasional thanks, if you're good enough.

Championship Manager: Season 01/02 will be making it's console debut, when it runs out on to the Xbox shaped pitch, on April 26th, and we hope to have a full review of this 'bootiful game', soon.
