Online footie games that will cost you nothing

Monday May 20, 2019


 With another season consigned to history, this is a time of year when football fans traditionally turn to the virtual world for their footballing action.


 It might sound like a very recent thing, and while this is true in the case of eSport leagues and the like, football-based computer and video games have been around for years now.

 After all, Football Manager came out in 1982 and even FIFA has been part of our lives for more than a quarter of a century, with the first ever version released for the Sega Genesis and Mega Drive back in 1993.

 Die-hard fans still queue up to buy the latest games the moment they are released, much as we did in the 1980s and 90s. However, one area in which gaming is very different today is the number of games that are available to play online, either through a browser or by downloading an app, that cost absolutely nothing. These are great for the many casual gamers who might enjoy the odd game during an idle moment but not to the extent that they would pay money for the privilege. Let’s take a look at three very different options.

 Champions Cup

 If you remember the days of trading Glenn Hoddle for Ray Wilkins in Football Manager then it is fair to say that you are a suitable candidate for some “grown up gaming” in the casino. A football game that costs nothing to play is good, but one that might actually pay you some money is even better. There are a few football-related slots games around, but Champions Cup is definitely one of the better ones. There are 24 international teams to choose from and lots of bonus games and events, meaning there is more to it than just spinning the reels. As a product of Netent, this is a game you will find at a whole variety of online casino sites, so it’s worth checking out a casino review page to see which ones are offering the most lucrative deals in terms of free spins and special offers.

 Stickman Soccer

 The Stickman series of flash games has had some criticism levelled at it over the years, but take it at face value and you won’t be disappointed. No, it’s not FIFA, but what it is, is a simple, flash-based game that is strangely addictive. Think Angry Birds but with footballs and you will get the idea. Don’t listen to the nay-sayers, give it a go, what have you got to lose?

  

 If the above two games lack the realism you crave, Speedplay could be exactly what you are looking for. This is proper, 11-a-side action, using the squads from the 2014 World Cup. Like Stickman, the action is simple and flash-based, but once you get to grips with the passing and shooting mechanics, you’ll never look back. Add this one to your game repertoire this summer, and the new season will be with us before you know it!
