It’s football in a box πŸ˜‰

Love this game, my only regret is that I didn’t get it sooner.

Super game. Works very well with 6 packs of beer and a bunch of friends. “You ll never walk alone” with this game:)!

I’ve been looking for a decent football board game for years and now I’ve found it. This is the closest you’ll get to the feel of football and the production quality is excellent. I really wasn’t expecting much when I bought it as all the other football board games I own are a little light and in no way realistic but honestly this is excellent. You really need to give it a try. Also what I like is the fact that you can buy other team colours, this for me is brilliant, and I got the same feeling Subbuteo gave me in the late 70’s. I honestly just cant get enough. All I need now is a stadium to go round the pitch, floodlights and some crowd sounds and I will be back to being a kid again.

A fantastic board game. Easy to play but with the right opponent can be tricky to master. A must-have for any football fan or for fans of strategy games
