Eidos, publisher of the record-breaking Championship Manager series of football management games, today announces an exclusive partnership with the world’s leading football brand, Adidas, for the hotly-anticipated October release of Championship Manager 5.
Championship Manager 5 will be the only football management game to have exclusive rights to the use of Adidas merchandise for product, packaging and in-game purposes.
World-recognised images such as the Adidas Roteiro ball used in Euro 2004, Adidas Predator Pulse boots and the Adidas trademark will be available for in-game screen backgrounds.
Eidos and Adidas will also be providing an exclusive football-based competition via the game’s box insert as well as on www.championshipmanager.co.uk.
The final boxart that will be on the shelves in October:
"The world's number 1 football management game"? We'll see about that when december comes.
Now we'll have the roteiro during the match on the 2.5D pitch of CM. Whoop di doo.
I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night, half an hour before I went to bed, eat a lump of freezing cold poison, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for letting us work there, and when we got home, our Dad would murder us in cold blood, each night, and dance about on our graves singing "Hallelujah." But you try and tell the young people of today that... and they won't believe ya'.
