Capstone Games has been named at Manchester City’s Official Casual Mobile Game Partner in Asia Pacific, North America and the UK.

The games developer works on football manager games, including Champions Manager Mobasaka, which had more than 2m downloads in the first year of its release.

The partnership will mean that Capstone can use city players, kits and the Etihad Stadium in future iOS and Android releases.

“We are thrilled to be working with Capstone Games who have a number of exciting plans in the pipeline. Manchester City has a strong digital-first strategy that applies to everything we do, so collaborating with an innovative partner like Capstone and engaging with their community of gamers is a great fit for us,” said Omar Berrada, Chief Operating Officer for Manchester City.

City has an already established gaming offering, with 2 pro esports players and teams in China and South Korea.
