Be Virtual Manager for Blues in upcoming Football Manager tournament

Represent Blues in a tournament against other EFL clubs!

7 April 2020

Have you ever taken Southend United to the Champions League or won the FA Cup with Blues on Football Manager?

Has the football management simulation video game been keeping you busy while you've been staying at home? Well this could be the perfect job for you!

We will soon be joining a host of EFL clubs entering into a Football Manager 2020 competition - and that’s why we are on the lookout for a supporter to take the hot seat!

We are giving one lucky dedicated Blues fan the chance to take the virtual reins as our manager, and  go head-to-head against supporters or possibly even players and managers of other EFL clubs, in a Football Manager 2020 tournament.

Over 50 clubs have already signed up to take part in the competition and full details of the format are to be confirmed in due course.

In the meantime, we need to select our virtual manager... and time is of the essence for us so our virtual manager can lay the foundations and get fully prepared to take on the challenge.

If you think you are the right person for the job, send us your Football Manager CV, including your greatest achievements on the game and a brief statement of why you think you’ve got what it takes to represent us.

To apply for the role, please email your Football Manager CV to media@southend-united.co.uk with the subject 'FM2020' and include any evidence you wish to contribute to your application!

In your email, please also include your full name, date of birth and contact details.

The deadline for applications is midnight on Sunday 12th April. Once the virtual manager selection committee (SUFC media team) have made their decision the chosen candidate will be contacted shortly after.
