Users can create club teams, while signing on their favorite soccer players. Users must train their players and choose their playing formations in order to work their way to the top. The new Facebook application also allows versus matches between friends, increasing the competitiveness.
The application currently has a 4.3 out of 5 star rating with 856,917 current users, proving the game is an engaging experience with a lot of competition.
Users are first assigned a set of players that vary in ability based on shooting, control, stamina, and strength. Players can be transferred by buying Gold, Silver, and Bronze transfer sets. Bronze players are international quality, Silver are star players, and Gold are Soccer’s world superstars. Cash and experience is earned by playing each of your friends once a day. Stadium upgrades can also increase revenues and training levels.
