Android - Getting Started

You can buy Football Manager 2019 Mobile from the Google Play Store via this link:

The game is also available for Kindle Fire devices from the Amazon App Store:

(US Store)

You will require:

  • Android OS version 4.1 (Jelly Bean) or above
  • A minimum resolution of 480 x 320
  • Tegra 2 chipsets are not compatible

The first time the game is run, it will need to connect to the internet to download skin data. You will have the choice of either downloading the basic data appropriate for your device or downloading the full skin data for your device, which also includes player pictures (licensed players only).

The size of the basic data download is about 150MB depending on your device. The size of the full data download is about 925 MB in total.

We recommend downloading these files over WiFi and not over a mobile network. Please ensure you have a functioning WiFi connection before downloading these files.

After downloading the skin data, the game will then take a few minutes to unpack itself and detect the appropriate Match Engine for your device - this should only happen the first time it is run - and then the Main Menu will load. Please note that if you are downloading the full data on an older/lower spec device it may take some time to fully unpack and install.

This depends on whether you wish to install the full skin data including player pics or simply the basic data. As a rule, we recommend having at least 250MB free when installing the basic data.

Please allow 1.4GB for the full data package including player pictures (where licences allow).

If the Google Play store gives you an error, please try clearing data and settings from Google Play and Google Play Services via the Settings -> Apps menu on your device and rebooting.

If you receive an error message while unzipping the data, please check the following:

  • That you have sufficient space on your device to unpack the data
  • Some other apps can interrupt the unzip process on some devices. ES File Explorer has been shown to cause this issue on some Samsung devices in particular. Please temporarily uninstall ES File Explorer until you have installed the data.

If you can't download the skin data, please ensure you have sufficient space on your device and that you have a solid WiFi connection.

For all other issues installing, please see the Troubleshooting section.

The game will detect how much RAM your device is able to allocate to the game and as such will determine how many players your device will be allowed to load.

Devices that don't offer sufficient resources will only be allowed to select up to 10,000 players, and will be restricted to combinations of leagues that will fall under this figure.
