Football fan gift ideas: 7 of the best gaming offers this Christmas

2. Football Manager Mobile 2017 + Apple iPad mini 4, £6.99 and £379

As even hardcore FM fans will attest, 2017’s full-on version makes steering Leicester to Premier League glory in real life look like a breeze. But for budding managers and those who preferred the days of smashing out a season without setting up training drills, the mobile version is a better bet. Snap up an iPad mini, load it up with the game and you’ve got the perfect gift for wannabe Guardiolas everywhere.

3. Sony PS4 500GB with FIFA 17, £217.95

If you’re buying for hardcore gamers who won’t take kindly to you putting Microsoft products under the tree, then this alternative PS4 offer from John Lewis is just the ticket. It’s a bit of a bargain and offers football-obsessed gamers the chance to take on their pals online and quietly forget about the travails of the real-life relegation battles and last-minute losses that can pile up over the Christmas period.

4. Rocket League: Collectors’ Edition, PS4 and Xbox One, £14.99

FIFA and PES are the Barça and Real of football games, sure – but there are alternatives if you want to give younger gamers something less taxing than battling rivals online. Rocket League: Collectors’ Edition sees you take control of cars in a battle royale football match, with the chance to score worldies and make absurd saves. It’s unrealistic and utterly addictive.
