We Are Football Goes Green in New Update (Patch Notes)

THQ Nordic’s We Are Football has gone green in the latest update by adding sustainability features that every good manager should consider.

We Are Football differs a little from Football Manager in what you manage. Instead of focusing on heavy match tactics, the game chooses to concentrate on building the entire club infrastructure. This includes the food you sell and how you treat the fans.

The latest update introduces the climate protection package. Now, players can power their stadiums with a wind turbine or treat their fans to vegan food in reusable dishes. There are also new updates surrounding better management for the 2nd team and improvements to training camps.
