A Polish soccer fan has broken the Guinness World Record for the longest continuous game of Football Manager.

Paweł Siciński of Poland broke the record on July 19, 2023, after playing the game for 453 days and 15 hours. This amounts to 528 years and 137 days of in-game time.

Siciński, who is from the city of Gliwice, began his record-breaking attempt on January 1, 2018. He played the game for an average of 12 hours a day, seven days a week.

During his time playing Football Manager, Siciński managed over 1,000 different teams and won over 100 trophies. He also had the opportunity to sign some of the world’s best players, including Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Neymar.

Siciński said that he was “overwhelmed” to have broken the record. He said that he was “a huge fan of Football Manager” and that he “loved the challenge of trying to break the record.”

Siciński’s record-breaking attempt is a testament to his dedication and passion for Football Manager. It is also a reminder of the power of video games to transport players to other worlds and allow them to experience things that they would never be able to do in real life.

Here are some additional details about the record:

  • Siciński’s game was played on a PC using the Football Manager 2018 game engine.
  • The game was played in real-time, meaning that Siciński had to manage his teams’ training, tactics, and transfers on a daily basis.
  • Siciński’s record-breaking attempt was verified by Guinness World Records.
