Input Methods

  • Mouse
  • Keyboard

You must have a mouse and a keyboard to play this game. You need a mouse for obvious reasons and if you did not have a keyboard, then you would not be able to save your game as you would not be able to name it.

Other disadvantages of not having a keyboard include:

  • Not being able to nickname your players and other players.
  • Not being able to use the 'Find' function in the game which locates specific players.
  • Not being able to give your manager your name as you wouldn't be able to edit 'Unnamed User'
  • Not being able to add a password to your game.


Many Internet communities are dedicated to CM 01/02, preferring it to the later editions, such as the Football Manager series and Championship Manager 5. A high proportion of these websites are also dedicated to editing the game, attempting to make it more up to date and realistic, the largest and best known being, a site dedicated to "keeping the game alive". They offer full updates and patches to bring the game up to date with today's squads/finances/tweaks/league structures and much much more. A new March 2009 update has just been released by the owners of the site, free to download.
