If you are looking for American Football then look here:
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/46534

For the rest of the world, this list aims to cover all the games about the real sport of kings, the beautiful game, Football.

Thats "soccer" to some of you.

Feel free to add the many I have probably missed. Games are sorted by BGG Rank in attempt to make the list vaguely useful.

Update: Since the unranked games don't seem to sort by average rating I have gone through and deleted some of the lower rated games on the list to make it a bit more useful.


Update: I've now removed the 'sort by BGG rank' and re-sorted them manually in order of highest ranked & rated games.

1. Board Game: The World Cup Game [Average Rating:7.05 Overall Rank:1204]

The World Cup Game is a football (soccer) game that is like no other soccer game. This is the first of its kind that closely resembles the current genre of German-style boardgames that have become so popular in recent years.
It is not a quiz game and it is not a single match style soccer game, but it covers two complete tournaments - the 1930 tournament in Uruguay and the 2002 tournament in Korea and Japan. Two games in one box. The 1930 game takes around an hour to play, while the 2002 game takes around 3 hours to play.

2. Board Game: Subbuteo [Average Rating:7.03 Overall Rank:869]

Subbuteo is a classic finger-flicking soccer-simulation action game. It is played on a large cloth playing field called a "pitch", with teams of players that are represented by miniature men mounted on smooth round bases. The men are made to kick the ball by flicking their bases, which causes the men to slide around on the pitch, hitting the ball. The rules simulate nearly all details of a soccer game including ball possession and passing, throw-ins, goal kicks and corner kicks. There is even a large section in the rules devoted to fouling.

3. Board Game: StreetSoccer [Average Rating:6.62 Overall Rank:1152]

StreetSoccer is the name in the Netherlands (Dutch: Straatvoetbal) for how soccer is played in parks or squares in cities and villages.
In this game 2 StreetSoccer teams play a 25 'minute' match.
The soccer field is 10 spaces long and 6 wide (plus spaces outside the lines).
The 2 players of this game both are coaches of one team.
Both coaches have 5 StreetSoccer player figures (incl. the goalie).
A die determines your number of spaces to move one of your figures. If you reach the ball you shoot the ball by the unused number of pips on the die.
The die makes luck a part of this game. But your choices, like which player you move to which field and where to pass the ball are very important. For the following turns you calculate chances for your opponent and yourself and you try to have your players in good positions for later situations.

I don't understand why it is "outside the scope of BGG". How does it differ from hundreds of dexterity games that are in the database?

SOCCER TACTICS WORLD is not a trivia or historical game. This is fast-paced, real soccer (football)! Everything that you can do in soccer, you can do in this game. This is not only a fun game for kids, but for Fathers and Mothers against sons and daughters; and husband against wife.
Soccer Tactics WORLD - THE BOARD GAME THAT KICKS!
www.soccertacticsWORLD.com

Soccer Tactics WORLD combines the strategy of soccer with the heart of the game. Eleven players per team on a traditional full-length field. This game includes dribbling, passing and capturing the ball; and intense battles for ball control.

But watch out! Yellow and red cards can be handed out. There are short and long passes, and offensive and defensive strategies. Free Kicks, Goal Kicks, Corner Kicks and Penalty Kicks. And don't be caught off-side!

Play a full 90 minute game (or set your own time). This game plays like the real thing. Soccer Tactics WORLD is pure soccer emotion!

Or so they say.

There was also Grand Slam. This edition published in 1990, apparently, but I distinctly remember it as a late '70s game that tried to mix Subbuteo with Super Striker. The men were OO scale like Subbuteo, but mounted on a block that had a flat front for passing/shooting and a sloped rear for chip shots. Played it a couple of times but wasn't thrilled. Not sure if this was because, at that age, I didn't like things I wasn't very good at.

[Edit] Whoops. Sorry Tony - I didn't recognise PTS 2000 as the same game.

Fantastic game from a small publisher. We replayed the 1990 World Cup to death, and yes, England won quite a few times.

Mind you, the game didn't simulate Chris Waddle's penalty taking...
