The beautiful game is given a makeover with Stick Cricket’s fast and addictive game play

Stick Sports, the team that created the Internet phenomenon Stick Cricket, have scored again with the launch of their new online football game, Stick Soccer.

Stick Soccer is sure to become the bane of employers worldwide as football fans, bemoaning the conclusion of the World Cup, take online solace at It's fast-paced, simple and unrelentingly addictive. Stick Soccer hits the net before the start of the new Premiership and European football season.

Stick Soccer will build on the remarkable impact of Stick Cricket and its 60,000 daily visitors. Office workers from Bolton to Buenos Aires can soon indulge in their love of the beautiful game – albeit in electronic form.

In customary Stick Sports style, the game-play is simple but never simplistic. The controls are straightforward but allow a good selection of sliding tackles and banana shots. The retro feel should appeal to young and veteran gamers alike and the three difficulty levels will provide a suitable test for any player.

Gamers can initially play with a selection of teams from the World Cup, Champions League, Premiership, La Liga, and Serie A - including the disgraced trio of Juventus, Lazio and Fiorentina. Players can take control of their favourite club or country and lead them to virtual glory. Just remember that yellow and red cards exist even in cyberspace – so rid that trigger finger of any Rooney infused wrath and let the champagne football bubble through.

Stick Soccer also features:

* Player registration

* In-depth player stats including the game’s quickest goals, the most goals conceded and the dirtiest players

* A range of formation and substitution options

The full game will allow players to compete against their friends in private mates’ leagues and tournaments, as well as the opportunity to play full Premiership, La Liga, Serie A and Champion’s League seasons, saving their team’s progress as they go. Gamers will also be able to play those crucial grudge matches against their friends as an online multiplayer version of Stick Soccer is due to be launched within the year.

Paul Collins, Co-Director of Stick Sports said, “Stick Cricket’s easy charm and addictive game play knocked online gamers for six when it launched in 2004. Such has been the impact amongst young male professionals that it was jokingly suggested to have affected the GDP of Great Britain and Australia. All of us at Stick Sports believe that Stick Soccer can have an even more dramatic effect on the global economy.”

Stick Soccer is free to play and can be accessed at
