Championship Manager Free 01 02 Download

I’m a big fan of Champ Man games. Actually – I’m a big fan of the old school Champ Man games and Championship Manager 01 02 is by far the most popular in the series.

Here, I want to describe how you can get a free copy of Champ Man 01 02 quickly and legally.

Getting a Free Version of Championship Manager 01 02

In 2008 the owners of Champ Man made Championship Manager 01 02 free to download. You can download a version with this link.

When the link has downloaded, open it up, enter a blank CD into your computer, and it will automatically burn the game to the CD.

When this is finished, enter the CD back into your computer and install the game normally. It is completely legal.

That’s it, you now have Champ Man 01 02 on your computer!

Cool Things You Can Do With Championship Manager 01 02

There are also lots of cool new things you can do with Champ Man 01 02.

A group of die hard fans at ChampMan0102.co.uk have updated the original database of players, leagues, and clubs. They do this every 6 months. So you can play Champ Man 01 02 with all the modern footballers!

To set this up, you firstly need to install Championship Manager 01 02, as mentioned above. You then need to do the following:

  • Firstly, you need to update the game to the last version of Champ Man 01 02 brought out. You can do it with this link here (since the last edit of this post, this is March 2013). Once downloaded, run the file – right click and run it as an administrator – to update your copy of Champ Man 01 02.
  • Next you need to download the latest version of the update database. You can do this with this link. Extract the data to Championship Manager Data directory (C:Program Files Championship Manager 01-02Data) and overwrite the existing files when prompted by your computer.
What do you think of Championship Manager 01 02? Do you play the game but with the modern database or did you struggled to install it with the instructions above? I’d love to hear your thoughts below.

    i am a novice at this and would like some help. i have downloaded the link burned it to a disc but when i put disc in it doesn’t run automatically. This was my fav champ manager and had a great night last night reliving days, weeks, months gone by playing this…….  Any help would be great

       Hi There,

      Try opening “My Computer” and then opening your CD Drive (normally either your D or E drive). It might load then or may open a folder. If the latter see if there is a “Autorun” program. That should do it.

      Let me know if that doesn’t work.

      Cheers
      Charlie

    where can i download the original database? “the original game but modified with young versions of great players like Messi and Iniesta.” would be great..

    • http://www.farlie.co.uk Charlie Davidson

      Hi Azam,

      Looks like the makers of the database have removed the link. I did try and find it but with no luck. If anyone can find it, please let me know!

    Hi,

    Have downloaded championship manager but cant seem to open the file. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    • http://www.farlie.co.uk Charlie Davidson

      Hey Mark,

      Have you trying unzipping the file first? You should be able to unzip it, double click on the single file on it, and insert a blank CD. If you don’t get that, maybe worth re-downloading it?

      Let me know how you get on.

      Cheers
      Charlie

    Hi Charlie,

    Thanks for replying. So I do need to burn the file onto a disk? How much space do I need?

    Cheers

    Mark

    • http://www.farlie.co.uk Charlie Davidson

      Sorry for the belated reply. Not too much space. A standard blank CD should do the trick. If it helps, I used a empty 700MB CD.

      Hi Charlie,

        Hi Mark,

        Sorry for the slow reply. This article is for installing Championship Manager 2001/2002.

        For Football Manager 2011 I’d look for an article on that exact version. Hope you get it sorted!

        Cheers
        Charlie

  • niels peter

    I downloaded it, it doesn’t burn it automatically to cd when I opened it. I needed to download and install jZip unzipping program to open it….. that’s as far as I get

    • http://twelm.com Charlie Davidson

      Hi Niels – thanks for getting in touch. Try it again when you have software to unzip the file and you should be able to proceed.

      If you’re still struggling – you might want to try this link instead: http://www.champman0102.co.uk/showthread.php?t=300

      Let us know how you get on! :)

    Thanks Charlie… have the game on the CD now, but the site you link to for the patch is a dodgy one according to my Virus checker, and it’s also VERY unclear which of the ‘download’ buttons is actually for the patch.

  • Chris Everson

    Another question… sorry! Once downloaded, any changes I make on the data editor don’t take at all. I like to edit a team of friends in, and it always worked in the past, but even though the editor shows it worked, none of the changes stick when opening the game. Any thoughts?

    • Chris Everson

      It’s OK.. don’t worry. I sorted it myself (Ran it as administrator). :)
