That said, among the most prominent features in Football Manager 2024 Touch, you will find significant improvements to the Match Engine, Training, Set Pieces, Dynamics, and many more.

Football Manager 2024 Touch: Match Engine & new roles

Just like in the other versions of the game, Football Manager 2024 Touch will feature significant improvements in the Match Engine. This translates into more realistic player movements, ball physics, and lighting than in previous releases.

In addition to these purely visual enhancements, Sports Interactive have added new roles for positions, such as the Full-Back, inspired by the tactics of Manchester City under Guardiola.

The revamped Set Pieces creator in FM24 Touch

Another new feature in Football Manager 2024 Touch is the revamped Set Pieces creator, where managers can create the best offensive and defensive plays to gain an advantage in each match. Check out our guide to the new Set Pieces creator for more info.

FM24 Touch: The new Principles feature

Sports Interactive’s devs introduced the new Principles feature to the Dynamics system. Now, once you choose the team you’ll manage, you’ll need to select three Principles on which your tenure at the club will be based. Some examples of these are Intelligence, Respect, and Teamwork. Your players will react based on these principles to the decisions you make with the starting lineup.

To ensure that your Principles have the desired effect both on and off the pitch, you will need to earn the Buy-In of your players. Buy-In is a new concept introduced to indicate how much your players believe in your vision and management.

The Buy-In level for each player will vary based on their distinct personalities. Not everyone will wholeheartedly embrace your management style, so you may need to persuade some players during your first few months.

New Training tools in Football Manager 2024 Touch

Finally, Football Manager 2024 Touch will bring a much cleaner Training menu with improved graphics to make it easier to understand the team’s weekly training. In this new edition, the developers have added the Attacking, Defending, and Goalkeeping training units, where you can specifically improve the players’ attributes depending on which training unit they are placed in.
