Real Madrid Fantasy Manager is a football club management game developed by From The Bench. The game is available on Facebook, iPhone and Android platforms.[2][5][6]

The game has been designed according to the theme of Real Madrid CF. There are 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 editions.[7][8]


Start of the game[edit]

At the start of the game, the players has three options — to create his own squad, to play with the whole squad of Real Madrid, or to play with the team, which the system prepares.

If the player wants to make his own squad, he has 90 million as his budget, and he can browse through various teams & available players. He must buy at least 2 goalkeepers, 5 defenders, 5 midfielders & 3 strikers.[9] To play with the whole squad of Real Madrid, more shields have to be brought. If the player chooses to go for the team which the system chooses, he gets a random team with one Real Madrid Player, 15 shields & 7 million as a budget.

Game currency[edit]

Shields are the main virtual currency of the game, which can be used to increase budget, shop items, signing players, etc. in the game.[10] Shields can be obtained in the shop, where players can buy more shields using Facebook credits.[11]

The other major currency is the money or total budget available with the team, which used to be counted in Euros.


Facilities are the main source of income for a team. A player can unlock more facilities by leveling-up or by gaining more partners. There are many facilities players can build like offices, shops, bars, and hotels. As a player progresses and levels-up, upgrades to the current facilities unlock, which are more yielding and are better than the older one.[9]

In the middle of all the facilities is the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, which is the highest yielding facility, and the only facility that a player does not have to buy. Also, money is never used for the maintenance of the stadium.


A player can play matches with teams of other users, and if his or her team is stronger and fit enough, he or she wins. After winning, the player gains experience and some money from the budget of the opponent.[9] For winning a match, a team must have a good score, which is decided by the performance criteria of the real-life player. For getting better scores, signing new players is important. New players can be signed via both shields or the money.

The players from all the teams of La Liga, Primeira Liga, Premier League, Serie A, Süper Lig & Bundesliga are available to sign. Players whose team have a fantasy manager are available having their own real faces. Currently Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi & Wayne Rooney are the most expensive players in the market.

As the season progresses, matches against users or the managers of others fantasy managers are introduced. Also, at a point of time the daily sprints are also introduced.

On 1 December 2011, just a few days before the el clasico, matches against the users of FC Barcelona Fantasy Manager, representing FC Barcelona were introduced. Also, different prizes by winning matches & different limited-edition equipment were announced.[4]

Partners, or Socios are the users that are connected and play in the game. In Facebook a player can invite friends to game, and they unlock as partners when they reach level 5. In iPhone, a player can invite partners by giving them a code. Partners help players to get more profit from facilities, and also help to win matches.

A partner can also be obtained in the shop, which consumes 5 shields per 1 Socio. Sometimes even a partner is gained when the app is visited daily and while getting its daily reward.

There are 130,000 monthly active users of the game[when?], making it the most popular game in the fantasy manager series.[4]


Other than playing matches, there are many other jobs that are useful to gain money and experience. Purchasing better facilities will allow better jobs. Jobs are categorised in various categories like the jobs through which whether only money is gained, only experience is gained or those which give money and experience.[9]

As facilities are upgraded, more better jobs are unlocked, that give more benefits while consuming much less energy.


The bank is the place where players can safeguard their money. It is important to deposit money in the bank in order to reduce losses if a player loses a challenge from another user. A 10% commission charge is cut from the money while being deposited. No charge is applied while withdrawing the savings from the bank.[9]
