Put simply; football games are understandably in demand.

Initially developed by Playtech back in 2007, Football Rules has been updated for both mobile gameplay and a modern-day audience.

Tiki Taka Soccer
It might be dead in the modern world but tiki take is still very much alive in the virtual climate, with Tiki Taka Soccer getting the nostalgic juices flowing thanks to its availability on a mobile phone. Based on the memorable Spanish style of play which Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona used so effectively, the game champions short and sharp passing and movements as players are tasked with scoring the ultimate team goal.
Football Chairman Pro
Similar in some aspects to Football Manager, although not as detailed and giving players the chance to play as a Chairman of a football club instead of a manager, Football Chairman Pro is part of the football management sub-genre as it challenges fans to experience the day-to-day life of a football chairman and make vital calls around things such as club transfers, manager recruitment, and even the option of designing a new stadium.
Other popular football games on mobile include Flick Soccer 19, Rumble Stars Soccer, Pocket League Story 2, Super Soccer Champs 2020, New Star Soccer, Flick Kick Football, and Dream League Soccer 2020.
