Superclub joins forces with Bundesliga to launch new board game

Published on: 28th June 2022

Superclub, the football manager board game, today announced it has partnered with the German football league Bundesliga to launch a new official licensed expansion pack, in a deal facilitated by IMG on behalf of Bundesliga International, subsidiary of the DFL Deutsche Fußball Liga.

Set to launch October 2022, the Bundesliga-branded expansion pack will include licensed player cards depicting players from all 18 Bundesliga teams, and also introduce an entirely new way of playing the game by mixing the Bundesliga players with the beloved Superclub characters in the main game. The game can also be played using only Bundesliga players for the most authentic Bundesliga season experience.

The Bundesliga is easily one of the best football leagues in the world with some of the best world-class players,” says Kjetil Hetlevik Johansen, CEO of Superclub. “Were looking forward to working with Bundesliga and are excited to collaborate on this new product. Superclub has enjoyed an incredible reception from football fans since it was first launched in English in October 2020. The first licensed club expansions followed a year later, and league expansions are a natural next step.”

Audun Egenberg, Creative Manager of Superclub, says: Managers can choose whether they want to play a Bundesliga-only game, or if they want to mix the Bundesliga IP with the original Superclub game. Naturally, the main game is being translated into German, but the Bundesliga expansion pack will also be playable in other languages. We cant wait to share our game with the Bundesliga faithful around the world.”

We are proud to have connected Bundesliga with a partner who has football expertise and the passion to create a game that allows consumers to play football as its meant to be’ and to recreate the amazing Bundesliga atmosphere at home,” says Sven Thierhoff, VP of Licensing at IMG.

IMG will also play an important part of the game development and launch strategy in the months to come.
