Sports Interactive and SEGA have announced that several  Football Manager 2012  items are now available via the Team Fortress 2 store. These items include, among other things, football boots, scarves and a vuvuzela sound pack. All will be given away for free to gamers that pre-purchases Football Manager 2012 from Steam, but will also be in the store after the much anticipated launch of Football Manager.

“When Steam and Valve came to us with this collaboration idea, it just underlined to us why we think they’re brilliant”, says Miles Jacobson of Sports Interactive. “Outside the box thinking that just works so well.”

He also apologises in advance for the general annoyance the Vuvuzela sound pack is going to inflict on the world.

Jason Holtman, Valve’s director of business development, says “GOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLL!!!”
