Football, Tactics & Glory is a football management game for strategy lovers.
Football, Tactics & Glory reinvents the basics of the football management genre, making it appealing to everyone, not just the most hardcore football management aficionados. The game skips the boring parts of football management games – all those endless tables, numbers, routine and micromanagement. But it is deep enough to keep players engrossed for hundreds of hours.
If you enjoy turn-based gameplay, strategy or tycoon games, you will love Football, Tactics & Glory.
By the end of 2011, after financially disastrous Collapse and Collapse: the Rage, Creoteam decreased from 20 to 3 people: the programmer, animator and game designer. They decided to make a game of a smaller scale but very deep and addictive.
Andrey Kostyushko, the leader of Creoteam, had a vision to make football strategy which felt “right”. He wanted to make every player’s decision important but ditch the overwhelming spreadsheets. It would be deep, replayable and emphasise smart tactics.
On June 1st 2015, the game was released on Steam Early Access under the name “Football Tactics”. After its first year in Early Access, the game was fun, polished and addictive, garnering Very Positive reviews from its audience. But the developers continued working on the game, listening to player feedback and releasing big content updates.
Creoteam added one of the best face editors made by an indie team because every football needed a personality. Then, after another year of work, they released a huge update adding new football classes, RPG levelling for footballers, and many other deep features.
In early 2018 Creoteam changed the game’s name to “Football, Tactics & Glory” because it better described the game’s nature.
The game’s full commercial release was made on June 1st, exactly three years after it entered Steam Early Access. The launch was successful. “Football, Tactics & Glory” stayed in the “New and Trending” section on Steam for few weeks. The game was covered by Polygon, Rock Paper Shotgun, Gamestar and other press.
On July 2018 Creoteam and Toplitz Production announced their partnership. They are working together to bring “Football, Tactics & Glory” to consoles and mobile devices.
On June 18th 2019 Creoteam released Creative Freedom update allowing a whole host of edits to footballers, clubs and whole countries so players can recreate real leagues or form their own fantasy worlds. Other improvements include: a new penalty system, Hotseat tournament mode in which you can play a whole season with any number of friends (1-32 players), 3-D grass, revamped game sounds, additional countries and many bug fixes and improvements.

- “Football, Tactics and Glory shines because it provides lots of stories, triumphs and disappointments.” – Colin Campbell, Polygon
- “If, like me, you crave the drama and flavour of club football, but don’t have the patience to grapple with full-blown management simulations like Football Manager, or the manual dexterity or even-temper necessary to play games like FIFA, anticipate obsession.” – Tim Stone, Rock Paper Shotgun
- “Football Tactics is the most captivating indie PC game I have played. In addition to the strategic gameplay and management aspects, the fact that games play out quickly helped keep me going “just one more turn.” In that way, it is very much like bigger strategy titles, like the aforementioned Civilization series. Plus, it is polished and charmingly animated, with easy to read menus and a very helpful tutorial.” – Caley Roark , Operation Sports
- “Think Heroes of Might and Magic but with footballers instead of griffins…” – Alan Passingham, The Pixel Empire
- “A real innovation: deeply addictive…” – Alexander Krützfeldt, GameStar.de
