This site is dedicated to CM9798, a Dos-Windows game released in 1997.
CM97/98 is available as freeware and runs on a Windows machine using Dosbox. The game is available without the need for a CD, so once it is installed it could be played regardless. This was to drum up popularity before the release of CM3, which was the next leap forward in the series.
This blog should be your one stop shop for all CM9798 matters. Primarily there will be blog posts tracking save games. You can catch up with this over at the Saves tab. Initially there was a save which completed the full duration of the game but there have been many other since then. They’re all documented on that page.
You’ll also notice some extra links, which include a guide to getting the game running again and Hints & Tips. This includes tactics, general tips for the game and a community voted best 11. I’m also privileged to have conducted an interview with the co-creators of Championship Manager, Paul & Oliver Collyer. That can be located here
In November 2015, my first book The World According to CM97/98 was published in conjunction with Ronnie Dog Media. The book is available to buy on Amazon in both Paperback and Kindle format. This was followed up by The World According to CM01/02 in December 2017.
In 2020 we launched the Championship Manager podcast Champ Man on the Post. Be sure to check that out over on the Podcast tab
I do all of this for a hobby but I write about CM, football and real sport for a variety of websites. My Wakelet profile includes some of my ‘highlights’ so check that out please and then pay me to write for you 🙂
