Self-isolation has increased a record number of players in Football Manager

Because of the coronavirus outbreak, a record number of streams has been reached during Sunday on video game Football Manager.

“Thank you for choosing our work to keep you entertained in this time of self-isolation in many countries around the world,” said director Miles Jacobson on Twitter, revealing that at one moment the game was played online by almost 90,000, BBC reports.

Football Manager’s database is now so comprehensive its use transcends gaming, something that first came to light when Sports Interactive signed a deal with Prozone to allow professional clubs to access it.
