A FM addict has completely obliterated the record for the single longest Football Manager game.

Pawel Sicinski has received a doff of the cap from the Guinness World Records after his save lasted a whopping 416 seasons and 134 days.


Pawel, a UEFA Grassroots C football coach from Poland, began his managerial journey on 4 January 2018.

He then went on to spend more than 400 years in the hotseat at various clubs, finishing up with Swedish side Helsingborgs IF to take him right up until 18 May 2434.

Incredibly, through all that time, he only spent 260 days on holiday - which is some serious dedication.

Manchester United fan Pawel also claimed the Polish record and has been charting his progress on social media and his YouTube channel.

He's been congratulated by the official Football Manager account for his achievement, which happened on FM 2018.

Pawel won a staggering total of 1258 trophies and scored 58,900 goals in 22,300 matches. The previous record was held by German Sepp Hedel, who completed 333 seasons.

He managed FC United, Bengaluru FC and Hereford FC across 333 seasons, playing 15,768 games and winning 11,217 to give him a 71% win ratio.

His teams scored 42,672 goals and conceded 15,563, while Sepp's managerial record saw him lift a ridiculous 987 trophies.

But Pawel has knocked Sepp off his perch and brought the record back to Poland.

Michal Leniec, a 38-year-old man, managed for 221 seasons and claimed the award in December 2018 - usurping Seb Keenan from Oxford as the biggest FM addict after he played out 170 seasons.
