A very common question. FM21 will be release approximately two-weeks before the official release on 24th November 2020. Please be sure to check the official FM social media account regarding the release of FM21 BETA.

Is there a difference between BETA and full release?
Yes, most of the bugs spotted during FM21 are fixed ready for full release. If you notice a bug during the BETA please click on the "report bug" option which will be watermarked in the game. The pre-game editor will NOT be available to use during the FM21 BETA.
