Sega is making the popular video game series free for a limited time only, with the trial on Steam set to end on Wednesday (25.03.20).

'Football Manager 2020' allows gamers the opportunity to test their own football skills and knowledge by leading their favourite team to potential glory.

Sega says of the title: "Every decision counts in this year's game with new features and polished game mechanics rewarding planning and progression like never before, empowering managers to develop and refine both your club's and your own unique identity."

The iconic title is often ranked as one of the most popular sports video games each year.

The decision to make the game available free on Steam coincides with an increasing number of Brits staying at home amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The virus has created chaos across a lot of Europe - and in recent days, the UK government has stepped up its response to the pandemic, announcing plans to close schools and encouraging people to work from home where possible.
