Let's play a match!
In the main menu, tap on "PLAY" to start a match!
You will be able to start a match in different STADIUMS (you can unlock new stadiums by levelling up). Each Stadium has a different entry fees (the amount of coins you need to pay in order to participate in the match) and prizes (the amount of coins you will receive in case of victory!).
Make sure to choose the right Stadium depending on your skills and team strength, the highest the Stadium the more challenging the match will be.
Try to practice and play in the lowest Stadium until you feel comfortable enough to move to the next one!
What are the benefits of playing multiplayer matches?
If you win a match you will be able to gain XP, the coin prize and packs! This is the key in order to progress in the game and create a stronger, unbeatable team!

If collecting all the players is not enough of a challenge for you, remember that you can play more competitive and try to dominate the leaderboards (Friends, League, Country and Global) in order to show who's the best player and get even more rewards!
As mentioned before, the highest the Stadium the more challenging the match and experienced your opponent will be. Bear in mind that sometimes the best offense is a good defense, especially when you are already winning!
How can I increase my team strength and optimize my team formation?
You can improve your team statistics by selecting TEAM in the main menu.
First of all, select your Team tactic form the Formation menu to decide how many Defenders, Midfielders and Attackers you want in your team. More formation will be available when you level up!
After, check the Players in your team and make sure that you have selected the best players from your rooster!
Each player's icon indicate: player's strength, player's role (GK: Goalkeeper, DF: Defender, MD: Midfielder, AT: Attacker), player's level (inside the circle on the left) and the amount of card owned for that specific player (cards are used to upgrade the players).
To change an active player, just drag the player from the Bench to the Field!
