This method makes OFM one of the most realistic online football managers ever created!
Your goal is to get the best possible results out of your team and prove yourself to be a better and more efficient manager than the other online managers, by winning a championship or accomplishing a certain goal preset by your team's board of directors.
Manager an Actual Team
Ever dreamed of managing your home club or maybe one of Europe’s Giants? Well, on OFM, you can become the gaffer of Scunthorpe United or Manchester United, AC Milan or AC Cesena. The teams and leagues are many and hail from far and wide. Take the helm of your favorite team from England to Spain, Peru to Argentina, Russia or Japan. Unlike some manager simulation games online, the squad lists are always being updated with the team’s actual players. So, instead of managing an Arsenal squad with first-teamers with names like Tony Smith and John Wright, you can choose to play Robin Van Persie up front with Adebayor.
