|Planetarium Manager is a free online football management game. In it, you're a football manager in control of your own team, competing in a fantasy league against other human or computer-controlled teams. Compete against your own friends to find out who's the best football manager!
The game never ends and never stops. It's available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can login and check on your team whenever you want, and the game will keep on running even after you log off.
Planetarium Manager is available today in 35 different languages, and there are 66 different national leagues. There are also continental and international team competitions.
The objective of the game depends on the manager. It can be to get one or more players to a national team, to aim for league or cup glory, or simply to achieve stability in the league system by raising and training your players properly. You define your own objectives. However, we can say Planetarium Manager is all about starting up a team from scratch and ultimately managing the team to worldwide success.
It's your choice… are you ready to embrace this challenge and become the best manager in the Planet?

|New World Cup format starting next season |
Starting next season, the World Cup format will change.
The new World Cup will still be played in the first 2 weeks of the off-season and 16 teams will (still) qualify for the final stage. It will have a group stage in the first week, with four groups of four teams. There will be 3 rounds with all teams playing against each other. 90 minutes matches where draws are possible. Games will be played on Mondays (first round), Wednesday (second round) and Friday (third and final round). All games at 20.00 PM-time. In case we have teams ending with the same amount of points, the normal PM rules for these cases will apply. In this group stage, teams will be seeded according to their position in the qualifying stage. This will result in a group with two second placed teams and all the other groups will have three first placed teams and one second placed team.
Two National Teams per group will the qualify for the Quarter-Finals that will take place in the second week of the off-season. The quarter-finals will be played with the first placed of group A playing against the second placed of group B and the first placed of group B against the second placed of group A.
The semi-finals will have a random draw. All games of the second stage (quarter-finals, semi-finals and final) will be played in a one-handed knock-out match. With extra-time in case of a draw at the end of the 90 minutes and a penalty shoot-out at the end of 120’ in case the draw persists.
Quarter-finals will be played on Monday, semi-finals on Wednesday and the final match on Friday. Games at 20.00 PM-time.
Over the next couple of weeks we will let you know the development plans of the next 6 months.

|World Cup draw |
With another new season, now is the time for the main National Teams World Cup to arrive. After two seasons of friendlies and qualifying, the World Cup will be played in England.
The Eight-Finals will be played next Wednesday at 20:00, server time, and we’ll have the following matches:
Chile vs England
Portugal vs Denmark
Spain vs Switzerland
Argentina vs Austria
Uruguay vs Serbia
Brazil vs Turkey
Greece vs Italy
Poland vs Romania
Funny facts as usual:
- This is the 22nd edition of the main World Cup. In the last edition Portugal got back to the winning road by getting its 10th World Cup title.
- All the historical nations are in this edition so there should be a lot of good action at the highest level of PM competition. Portugal is still the number 1 favorite in our opinion. Followed by Spain and Romania (no order here).
- Denmark is back since 2010 and England also since 2012. Welcome back guys!
As usual it will definitely be a great World Cup so don’t miss all the action. This will be the latest World Cup with this format! A new World Cup format will be announced next week. Anyway, about this one, next Wednesday we’ll see what happens. We would like to wish good luck for all the participating communities and congratulate them for reaching this stage. May the best win!

|2 small new forum features |
For those that don’t use the old forum system, we have just added 2 small new features to the forums. We hope you find them useful:
- At the first page of the forum, you can now find a "My Topics" board. This will list the last 6 topics you have participated on (and if there are new topics on these topics). The idea is to give you a faster insight on your recent forum activity.
- On all forums listed on the side, you now have a "-" sign. This will minimize the forum for you. You will still be in the forum, but you just don’t see the last topics on the forum. You can later maximize the forum again by pressing the "+" sign. This is useful for those that subscribe to a lot of forums and want to save some browser space.
I take this opportunity to remind you all that we’re currently busy working on the new World Cup format.

|France is the U21 World Champion |
After three presences in the final match in the last 7 editions, France finally grabbed their first U21 World Cup title.
We want to congratulate the french manager - Ironkev - and all the community for this fantastic achievement for France. It is now one of the few countries in PM with World Cup titles both at the main and U21 level.
Portugal also deserves a word of merit with another great run by the legendary manager planeswalker. They did not win this time but there is another edition coming up for another try.
Good luck everyone for the new campaign!
