Oslo, Norway – April 11 th, 2013 - The online browser-game ManagerLeague is entering its 100th online season. Since the launch of the game in September 2005 almost 1.000.000 people from over 180 countries have played the game. Today, there are 45.000 active players, and the 'oldest' players have been with the game since launch.

Developer Christian Lassem says: 'The fact that we've managed to entertain so many people for so many years is a clear indication that there are a lot of people out there with a passion for manager-games. We work continuously on improving our product to satisfy an increasingly demanding audience. Since the launch of the game we have revised the match simulator 14 times. In addition, we have made major revisions to the graphics, the user interface, tactical options and the transfer market. The constant rejuvenation of the game has contributed to keeping players interested, and I'm hoping that the surprises we have planned for season 100 will add to that.'

ManagerLeague is a football manager game that uses virtual players, rather than actual players. Your abilities as a manager determine the development and success of both your players and the team as a whole. The matches are played in both a league system and a cup system involving players from all over the globe. Two matches are played each weekday, and each season lasts four weeks.
