Why are Manchester United called 'Man UFC' on Football Manager 2022?

 In a curious development, the Red Devils will not be in the game exactly as we know them - Goal explains why

Licensing issues mean that football video and simulation games have a long history of using fake names to carefully avoid potential disputes.

The likes of Konami's Pro Evolution series famously popularised teams such as 'Man Red' players like 'Naldarinho', but nowadays there is generally no such confusion.

However, there are still a number of fake names littered across football titles, such as 'Piemonte Calcio' in FIFA and now Manchester United have been renamed 'Man UFC' from Football Manager 2022 on.
