Lead a basketball club to the glory and become the world’s greatest team



Barcelona, Spain –July 24, 2018– For true basketball fans, U-Play Online will be launching their classic management game International Basketball Manager on Steam later this summer. The game will feature updated fictional squads corresponding to season 2017-2018.

International Basketball Manager brings us back to the court to put ourselves in the shoes of a basketball club manager. Sign the best players for your team, train them effortfully and win as many trophies as you can. The game contains 12 national leagues, 2 European competitions, and 7 national squad competitions.

“We got into professional game development because we wanted to create a game inspired by the classic PC Basket”, says Jordi Torras, CEO at U-Play Online. “We are keen to launch a new edition of our oldest saga and share our passion for basketball with other fans”.

U-Play Online’s Basketball Manager saga, born in 2008, was published in Spain, Italy and in some Eastern European countries. Pro Basket Manager (2008), Euroleague Basketball Manager (2009) and International Basketball Manager (2010) are the titles preceding the brand new International Basketball Manager (2018).
