Football Manager 22 beta: Schedule, how to access, and more

It's almost that time of year again. That time when we fork over £30 for the priviledge of a second job. But it is not just any job, its the dream job, the job that allows you to take your local club to through the divisions to the Champions League and beyond or go big from the jump and buy up every footballing superstar from around the globe for your own take on the Galácticos. 

We are, of course, talking about Football Manager, and the 2022 edition is weeks from release and players can now jump into the beta.

Releasing on 9th November for PC, Xbox, and mobile devices, FM22 promises to spice up the experience and those eager to jump in can do so now.

So without further ado, let's get down to everything you need to know about the FM22 beta.
