Soccer Manager Ltd Founded

Founded by Andrew Gore, Chris Gore, Steven Gore and Peter Adams. Three brothers and their friend decided to join expertise and create an online game they would enjoy playing themselves, a football management game that today we call Soccer Manager Worlds. It was the love they had for the game they were creating that has enabled the company to grow into the high quality game developer it is today.
