Manchester United is suing Football Manager over the use of its name

16 years after the release of Sports Interactive’s first Football Manager game, and 28 years after the launch of the first Championship Manager game, Manchester United is suing the developer over the use of its name in the game.

As reported by The Guardian, Manchester United has launched legal action against Sega and Sports Interactive for allegedly infringing its trademark.

Countering, Sega and Sports Interactive said the use of the club’s name in the popular simulation series is “a legitimate reference to the Manchester United football team in a football context”, and pointed out it has been used in Football Manager and its predecessor Championship Manager since 1992 “without complaint by the claimant”.
