The Growing Diversity of Online Football-Related Games

Finding an online football game has never been easier. If you’re a fan of the beautiful game, you can choose from a growing variety of different ways of playing, to get the perfect approach for your style.

The Latest Version of Classic FIFA Game

FIFA from EA Sports has long been regarded as the most realistic, feature-packed football game. As the best-selling sports video game in history, it has sold over 280 million copies in a variety of formats and now lets players take part in huge online tournaments. The new FIFAe tournaments format gives players the chance to play for themselves, their clubs and their country.

The first game in this iconic series was released in 1993 and the latest version is the FIFA 2021 title that was released in October, 2020. In this new version, the Ultimate Team has 11 new players, including Ashley Cole, Philipp Lahm and Fernando Torres.

Football Slots Offer Casino Action

The global appeal of this sport means that it has also made the switch across to being a casino game. The best online casino sites have slots like Golden Goal from Play’n Go and Football: Champions Cup from NetEnt in their games selections. They sit alongside traditional casino games like blackjack and roulette, giving a different type of real-money game.

The NetEnt game mentioned earlier features extras such as free spins and scoring wilds. Fans can also take part in a tense penalty shootout round in which they can earn coins by scoring their own penalties before taking a turn at trying to save some.

Fantasy Football Games Have Moved Online

The huge popularity of fantasy football can be traced back to 1971, when a man called Bernie Donnelly invented it. The former economics teacher created a clever football game for a group of friends to play. The Telegraph took it to the next level in the mid-90s with the first newspaper version.
These days, you can find lots of different sites that let you carry out the entire process of picking a team and following their progress online. The official English Premier League site has one of the most popular versions of this game, while it is easy to find versions for just about any league you are interested in.

Fast and Simple Mini-Games

What if you want a quick, fun game that maybe doesn’t look a lot like your favourite sport but is still entertaining? If you look for sites containing mini-games you will usually find a decent selection of varied titles.

For instance, the Kiloo site has titles like Bobblehead Soccer Royale, Goalkeeper Challenge and Gravity Soccer for you to choose from. Most are simple little games with easy to grasp controls, but many of them will take you some time to get to master.

The fact that football is the world’s most loved sport means that we are likely to see more online games based on it appearing over time. For the moment, you can take your pick from as many different ways of playing as you care to check out.
