eFootball Seasons explained

A "Season", which will run for a limited period, will have a theme for the events users can play in using their Dream Team.

Each Season's theme will be based around current topics in the real footballing world, bringing with it a wide variety of events to take part in.

There are Challenge Events for users to play against other users, or Tour Events for users to go up against the AI.

Signing players and assembling a team that matches the Season's theme can give users an advantage in these events.

Dream Team

This is a brand-new game mode where users can build their own original team linked with “Season” by signing players and managers by making use of in-game items (e.g. GP that users can acquire by playing different in-game matches) and compete against other users from around the world.

In "Dream Team", users can handpick and sign players and managers that are consistent with their football ideology.

You will be able to develop and strengthen players through a training and levelling system, so that they match with users’ own playstyle.

Organise your team through signing and developing players, finding the Team Playstyle that suits you best and building your own "Dream Team".

Compete against other "Dream Teams" built by other users from around the world, with the option to also play against the CPU in special events to earn rewards.
