We are happy to announce that version 2.07 is now available on Soccer Manager 2016 and its coincided with the start of the new seasons in both Major League Soccer and the Chinese Super League.

The Chinese Super League made the footballing world stand up and take notice with their transfer activity this year. When their transfer window closed at the end of February, their total spending broke the £200M barrier and surpassed the £172.65M that Premier League sides spent during January. Their league now boasts the likes of Ramires, Jackson Martínez, Alex Teixeira, Gervinho, Freddy Guarín and Ezequiel Lavezzi. The Chinese Super League is now intriguing and will only continue to grow in stature.

You can argue that the MLS has as many household names as the league boasts the likes of Robbie Keane, Kaká, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Andrea Pirlo, David Villa, Sebastian Giovinco and Giovani dos Santos. These foreign stars are complimented nicely by American internationals  such as Clint Dempsey and Michael Bradley.

The database on Soccer Manager is powered by Soccer Wiki, a community driven database. The new seasons have just started in China and the USA and all of their leagues have been updated to include the most recent transfers. So why don’t you head over to Soccer Manager 2016 and start a new career managing in either China or the USA?

Version 2.07 also contains improvements to the 2D matchday experience as well as the following bug fixes:

  • Can now sort squad by value;
  • Can now progress beyond 31 December 2027;
  • Goalkeepers are now longer automatically picked as an outfield player;
  • Club attendances are now in-line with the data on Soccer Wiki;
  • Players can no longer be sent off twice in the same game;
  • Sound introduced to the game on Steam;
  • Relegation places now show on league tables;
  • Cup games are no longer scheduled before cup draw;
  • More realistic continental competitions.

We will continue to make improvements to the game based on our communities feedback, so please keep your ideas coming and in the coming days we will announce what we’re working on for version 2.08.
