Foosio - You are the manager. Every matchday. Live.
How to play Foosio?
- Create an account
After downloading and installing the app in either the Apple AppStore or Google PlayStore you first have to create an account, e.g. using your Email or Facebook.
- Balance and game creation
After creating an account we will credit you 1.000 koins, our ingame currency. You will need this to enter games that all have different entry-fees. To start a game just click on the "+" button on your games screens.
- Choose a mode
Now you can choose your favorite mode. In "Play Foosio" you can play against 9 other manager from all around the globe. In "Foosio with Friends" you can play with your friends. These of course also need to have a Foosio account. You can add or invite friends in your profile.
- Choose a fixture and pick a team
You can choose from all the big leagues in Europe. Choose your favorite fixture, e.g. Chealsea vs. Arsenal and pick the 4 players you want in your team. The players have different market values (7m, 5m,3m or 1m) based on their past performance. You can only spend 16m for your team. It doesn't matter if you pick Chealsea or Arsenal players, the only limitation is the budget and that you can only pick one goalkeeper.
- Invite friends
As soon as you have picked a team, you can invite friends if you choose "Foosio with Friends". These of course also need to have a Foosio account. You can add or invite friends in your profile.
- Entry fee and prizepool distribution
In the last step you have to choose an entry fee. You can choose between different stakes, 50koins, 100, 250, 500, 1.000 or 5.000 koins. The higher the entry fee the higher the risk, but of course also the potential pot and profit.
The prizepool is distributed as follows: The winner takes 50%, the second takes 30%, the third takes 20%, while we hold back a service fee of 10% of the overall pot.
Is Foosio free?
Yes, it is! You get a free balance of 1.000 koins that you can use to pay the entry fee. Additionally you will receive 50 free koins a day as a login bonus. If you want to, you can purchase more koins in our shop, but the game is free.
Who are my opponents?
You choose who you want to play! In "Play Foosio" you play against 9 random managers from all around the globe, in "Foosio with Friends" you can play with your ingame friends. You can also invite friends to join you in Foosio by sharing the app with them in your profile.
When is a game active?
Once you have paid the entry-fee, the game starts and is active.
Can I cancel an active game?
No, for now this is not possible, but we might add this as a feature in the future.
How long can I change my team?
You can substitute players in every minute before and also live during the 90 minutes. 20 minutes before the match starts we will send you a push notifications (if you agreed to that) and will publish the official line-ups, so that you can see if "your players" are also playing in the real match.
How can I substitute players?
All your players are in your "My team" tab in the game. With the green sub-icon you can substitute them. Once you click on it, we will credit you the market value and you can spend it on a different player (or cancel the sub by going back or adding the same player again). You can also sub multiple players at the same time!
Who wins in Foosio?
The manager with the highest score after the game has been finished wins. The score is calculated based on the real performance of the players on the pitch according to our scoring table.
Can I play more than one match?
You can play as many matches at the same time as you like.
Can I play all matches of my favorite team today?
No, that sadly isn't possible, since we recalculate the market values for every match. The performance of the past games is taken into consideration and thus you can only play the next match once the team's last match has been finished.
Which leagues and cups are featured?
Right now you can choose between Bundesliga, 2. Bundesliga, Austrian Bundesliga, Serie A, Premier League, LaLiga, Ligue 1 and Champions League and Europa League. But we will add more leagues as we grow!
Is it possible to combine players and matches in one game?
We might add that in the future, but wanted to start with an easy to understand match schedule. If different games have the same kick-off time a "multi fixture" might be possible though.
How does the scoring work?
Every player scores live based on the real performance on the pitch. Additionally there are team bonuses. A summary of all events that change the score can be found here in this scoring table.
Who is providing you the data?
The data that is the foundation for our scoring is collected by SPORTRADAR. We then transform the data into the scoring. Of course we rely on the data that SPORTRADAR forwards and sometimes the data might be wrong or inaccurate. We try to minimize these situations and ask you for your comprehension.
You can follow the scoring and all important events in the timeline of every game.
How do you calculate the market values?
The market values are calculated for every new match. We take into consideration the past performance, injuries and of course if the team is favorite or underdog in the next match.
What are "koins" and why do I need them?
Koins are our ingame currency. For every match that you would like to join you will have to pay an entry fee that consists of koins. If you win, we will credit you more koins after the game finished.
Where can I see my balance?
Your balance is shown on the top right corner.
What happens if I am out of koins? Can I get more koins?
If you are really out of koins you can either wait some hours to collect 50 koins as a daily login bonus or you go to the shop to buy koins with real money.
