Licenses and Partners
Invincibles Studio are proud to partner and work with some of the most elite footballing and charitable organisations.
SM have secured a partnership with FIFPRO for the use of official player IP within the game that adds a great level of authenticity to the Soccer Manager series.
FIFPRO is the global union of professional football players with nearly 70 affiliated player associations worldwide. FIFPRO Commercial Enterprises BV brings together agreements from each participating country to offer the world’s most comprehensive package of active football players for use, on a collective basis, in the digital entertainment industry. This includes access to tens of thousands of real-world football players, their names, image and likeness, in both club and national team environments.
In September 2020 SM started their partnership with the DFL and the Soccer Manager series acquired the rights to the official Bundesliga license, introducing official clubs, player images and kits to the Soccer Manager 2021 edition, creating an even more immersive and realistic user experience.
The SPFL is one of SM’s newest partnerships, the Soccer Manager 2022 iteration which is due to launch this October will include the official SPFL license, providing users the opportunity to experience managing some of the oldest and historic football clubs. Players will be able to take over as manager of the official clubs containing real club logos and players and will be able to gain first hand experience what it is like to manage one of the most iconic derbies in the world, the ‘Old Firm’ – Celtic vs Rangers.
Soccer Manager and Special effect have been partners since March 2020. SpecialEffect is a UK charity that uses specialist video game technology to enhance the quality of life of people of all ages who have severe physical challenges, whether as a result of a disability, traumatic injury or debilitating illness. Special Effects branding features on shirt sponsors and pitchside advertising inside the Soccer Manager series.
SM’s and Xaya’s partnership began in 2018 when the two companies started development on a new game called Soccer Manager Elite using Xaya blockchain platform. Soccer Manager Elite is currently in Beta, it is a multiplayer-driven football management game and presents a new era for gaming and soccer management simulations.
