Manchester United Championship Soccer is an unreleased Sega Mega Drive football game developed by Krisalis Software and set to be published by Ocean Software in 1995.

Krisalis had been producing a number of Manchester United-licensed football games for the Amiga, with Championship Soccer thought to be developed between the top-down Manchester United: Premier League Champions (1994) and isometric Manchester United: The Double (1995). Championship Soccer would have offered the user the ability to switch between the two perspectives[1]; an option which the Amiga games lacked.

Despite its name, Manchester United Championship Soccer would have featured 72 teams from the top English, French, German and Spanish leagues as well as an "All-Time Greats" featuring famous players from the past[2]. In addition, three weather types were implemented that would have affected play[3], and features such as players becoming less effective if tackled[3].

Manchester United Championship Soccer is thought to have appeared at Winter CES 1995, and was a cover story for UK Sega magazine, Sega Pro in its Easter 1995 edition[1]. It was penciled in for an April 1995 release at £39.99, and would have shipped on an 8-megabit (1MB) cartridge[4], but was cancelled for unknown reasons.
