You thought you were a fan of Football Manager, this game that lets you slip into the coach’s shoes? You will never be like Paul Sisinski. This pole broke the record for the longest game in the 2018 edition, which was approved by Guinness World Records by stopping in May 2434. This is a long run of 460 seasons, 22,300 games were played and 1258 titles won. His teams scored 58,900 goals.
The old record belonged to Seb Heidel with a coaching career spanning 333 seasons.
OGC Nice in European Gratin
After breaking the record, Paul Ciesinski did not stop there and continued his adventure with Podbeskidzie Bielsko-Biała, which he led from the Polish second division to the Champions League in the 1980s.
Wondering what the abundance of Europe looked like in those years? We find, of course, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Chelsea, but also English club Swindon, which reached the C1 final in 2493, Millwall, twice winner in 75 and 78, but also … OGC Nice, winner of 77 and double finalist in 71 and 81.
9000 hours of gameplay
Above all, the record holder only took 260 days off the game. For starters, Football Manager is a daily game from the coaching profession, and it is possible to take time off to allow the program to run the game for a while. It is a frequent practice for players to speed up the tempo a bit.
In this context, 260 days seems too few for a 460-year career. His game stats attest to this: to get to the game’s 2485 year, Sicinski played 9,000 hours of Football Manager, or a full 375 days!
