iOS – General

If you are suffering from a crash or the game failing to run, please try fully restarting the device as a first step.

To turn the device off: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red "slide to power off" slider appears, and then slide the slider.

To turn it on again: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears. It will then boot up in a few seconds.

If you are still experiencing issues, please visit our forum to check whether any other users have reported similar problems: If it is a new issue, feel free to start a new thread and we will do our best to assist you.

If the game fails to run immediately after purchasing and installing it, it is possible that it may not have downloaded or installed correctly. In this situation, it is best to delete the app from your device, reboot the device fully and then re-install the app. Don't worry, the App Store will know that you have already purchased the app and will let you download it again. Do not do this if you have run the game and have existing saves as they will be removed.

To delete the app: Hold your finger on the Football Manager 2020 Touch icon until all the icons on your home screen begin to shake. Then tap the "x" in the upper left hand corner of the Football Manager 2020 Touch icon and confirm.

Please check whether the issue has already reported and if not, report it to the iOS bugs forum Please provide as much information as possible, including the device you are using and the iOS version you are running;

Screenshots are always very helpful.

We may ask you to send us your save game to assist in a reviewing a bug. A guide for retrieving your save file from an iOS device can be found here: 

You can run up to three nations. You can also customise how far down the pyramid you run.

National management is an unlockable in Football Manager 2020 Touch. You can unlock it by winning a Manager of the Year award. You can also skip ahead and purchase it from the Store.

Changing the game’s language has been simplified in Football Manager 2020 Touch – you no longer need to change your device language to change the language in-game. If you wish to change the language, do the following:

  • In game, go to the Preferences screen.
  • Select a language from the ‘Language’ drop-down list. You can also select a different language for data like club and player names to be displayed in.
  • Close the game fully.
  • Boot FM20 Touch again. It should now be in the correct language.

When you background an app on iOS (i.e. the game is not the currently active window on screen), iOS may decide it needs to free up some memory. If so, it may close FMT in the background. To combat this, we have introduced recovery saves.

If iOS has killed the game in the background, then when you boot the game up again, the Start Screen will have a popup asking you if you want to restore your last save game. If you choose to restore it, the game will load a save from the point you backgrounded the game. If you choose not to, you can load your last manual save/autosave as normal.

Also, if you had backgrounded during a match, Football Manager 2020 Touch is able to restore your mid-match progress from the point you backgrounded it. It just takes a few seconds to restore itself to the right point. As above, if you choose to not restore it, you can load your last manual save/autosave as normal.
