Football Manager already takes up endless hours of fans' time on PC and smartphones, offering unlimited opportunities to build, manage, and lead a squad to victory. Sports Interactives has today announced a new version, Football Manager Classic, for high-end tablets.

The game will bridge the gap between the full PC and mobile version of the game, falling somewhere amid the two experiences. There is a full 3D match engine, touch screen control, and more options and depth than the mobile edition of the game, without reaching the comprehensive level of the PC game.

You can see a trailer for Football Manager Classic below, as well as a comparison chart that shows the difference between the new game and Football Manager Handheld. SI clearly wants to demonstrate that the two are not the same, and the features list shows an overall deeper and more fully functioning game than the smartphone version.

As for what devices are compatible with Football Manager Classic, SI has provided a full list of options. iPad Air 1 and 2 and iPad Mini 2 and 3 lead the way for iOS, while a fairly wide selection of Android tablets including several iterations of the Galaxy Tab and Lenovo Tab S8 can run the game. There's a list of products that will support the title soon, including the Nvidia Shield. Football Manager Classic is £14.99 in SI's native England, so check your app store for local pricing.
