Turn-based strategy with RPG elements meets football! It’s a game for those who enjoy any combo of turn-based mechanics, team development, tycoon-style games and football. It is inspired more by the likes of JRPGs, Civilization, and XCOM rather than by Football Manager.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We went to the Early Access when the game wasn't deep and polished enough. Thankfully to the players' active participation and feedback, we improved Football Tactics significantly. Also, your purchases allowed our team to continue developing the game. Now, when we implemented almost everything we planned, the development of the game is moving to its end.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game is almost complete. There are only a few features left to implement. We are going to leave Early Access on Spring 2018.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Here's what we still are going to implement: 1) remake transfers system, 2) add some interesting statistics, 3) make the graphical interface look more professional. Everything else works perfectly and so the game is really fun right now.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“From point of view of the game's quality and depth, it is almost complete. It contains tactically deep turn-based matches, club management, achievements, trading cards, modifications support, good graphics, detailed Face Editor. The features which we are still going to add will make the game even deeper.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price will increase as we add new major updates and after the final release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Thankfully to our community, Football Tactics already became much better. Players wrote their suggestions, and we heard them. Players proposed help, and we took it. Players even helped us to translate the game to few additional languages. With your help we want to make Football Tactics even better.”

10.2.1 - more Fame for the draws and wins against stronger opponents

While we weren't going to release anything before the next big update, this micro-update really wanted to be released ;)

  • Now, when you win against a stronger opponent, you will get 2x Fame (comparing to how it used to be) and when you end in a draw you get 4x Fame
  • Earlier, after the lofted passes to a flank, the ball had a higher probability to continue flying in its direction so it used to fly out of the sideline more often. Now, the probability of falling on any tile around the teammate is equal.
  • Fixed the crashing after clicking on a broken Interception link in the Footballpedia.
  • Now, the players will earn the specialization XP for unsuccessful intercepting the dribbling. Also, the players will earn spec. XP for trying to tackle the ball on the flanks.

PS Thanks for voting for our game ;)

“Football Tactics is the most captivating indie PC game I have played. In addition to the strategic gameplay and management aspects, the fact that games play out quickly helped keep me going “just one more turn.” In that way, it is very much like bigger strategy titles, like the aforementioned Civilization series. Plus, it is polished and charmingly animated, with easy to read menus and a very helpful tutorial.”
Operation Sports

“Think Heroes of Might and Magic but with footballers instead of griffins...”
9/10 – The Pixel Empire

“I am not FIFA fan, I don't even like football. But the way developers made the game totally won me over”

About This Game

Football Tactics is a football management game for those who love strategy games.

There are many games based around 'development': you can develop your country, a theme park, a video game company, pizzeria, alchemy shop and so on. But there has NEVER been a strategy game based on developing your football club!

Sure, there are hardcore football simulators, but it's difficult to play them and, even more importantly, they don't give you enough feedback to assess the accuracy and wisdom' of your decisions.

Football Tactics is a game about a coach who no-one believes in. So to prove them wrong, he takes an amateur club and attempts to raise it to the pinnacle of world football! Playing the role of this coach, you start out with an old stadium which has just a single bench for your fans.Your goal is for your team to become so successful that you will ultimately transform this worthless bench into an arena with 80 000 seats by which time your club will have won all the major prestigious trophies in world football!

But the fun doesn't stop there. If you wish, you can choose to continue playing indefinitely, writing the history of your great football club. Or you can challenge yourself to repeat your meteoric rise with a new club. One thing's for sure - it certainly won't be the same experience second time around!

You play matches by utilizing the unique, turn-based mechanics, at the same time developing your club to its highest potential. Your decisions concerning team development affect the match results so choose wisely because your results, in turn, affect the strategic development of your club.


- Unique turn-based system
- Club development involving economics and RPG elements
- Powerful face editor
- Mod support which allows you to create real-life leagues
- Online game support
- Twitch integration (spectators can interact with a streamer)
