Halstead Town set up a 32-team Football Manager tournament with the First Round draw set to be made on Saturday.
The idea came about after Leyton Orient created their much publicised FIFA competition which sees it’s first set of games play out from Sunday.
It is open to any non league club who feature on the Football Manager 2020 game and all they have to do to enter is by simply retweeting the tweet from the The Eastern Counties League Division One South side’s official Twitter account.
