Supporter Sam won the fan vote to become our virtual manager and boasts an impressive CV on the latest version of the world's most popular Football management game. In a six-year career with The Bees, Sam has won ten domestic titles, including four Premier Leagues, as well as two Champions League, a Euro Cup and a Club World Cup.

The tournament is a straight knockout competition with the final two teams left standing facing off in the showpiece final in mid-May. After each round is completed, highlights will be uploaded onto the FM YouTube channel for you to catch up on all of the action and there will be a full written round-up on the FM website.

As well as supporting The Bees during the tournament, you can also show your support for the EFL’s charity partner, Mind, the mental health charity. In these tough times their services are needed more than ever so while you’re being entertained by the action, please consider donating on this JustGiving page which will be open during the tournament.
