Square Enix has confirmed that it will be bringing its popular Championship Manager franchise to Facebook in selected territories via a new partnership with Jolt Online Gaming & Gamestop.

Championship Manager for Facebook promises to take the features from the world's longest running football management game and tailor them for the Facebook platform.

"Championship Manager continues to be an important franchise for Square Enix and we're excited to be able to bring it to new platforms such as smartphones and now Facebook," said Phil Rogers, president and CEO of Square Enix Europe. "We have found the perfect partner for this initiative in Jolt/Gamestop and we look forward to working together towards the launch of this new gaming experience."

“There’s nothing that rivals the enthusiasm of “Championship Manager” fans, “ indicated Mike Mauler, Executive Vice President of International for GameStop. “We're delighted to be partnering with Square Enix Ltd. and we look forward to delivering this outstanding franchise to gamers and fans in a new way.”

A release date has yet to be confirmed.

I take issue over the terms ‘addictive’ and ‘sim’ :)

On the basis that Championship Manager has bombed so badly, I guess they're having to look at other approaches, such as Facebook. I still think they're doomed to failure though.
