'The Soccer Cup is back for 2020. This year, we follow the road to the championship for the men's team!'

This year there are some changes in the Soccer Cup Event. You can now win two Daily Specials, one from the Training Field and from the Tournament. The League System is back, but only the games played in the Tournament count towards your progress in it. You need to complete Quests to get Energy Drinks to Train your Players, collect Player Cards to give you more Players to improve your Team and gain tickets to enter the Tournament. It might sound complicated at first, but it's so easy! Let's see how it works.

How Can I Participate in the Soccer Event?

The Soccer Cup is back! This year, we follow the road to the championship for the men's team! Complete event quests to win Energy Drinks and a bonus reward of Tournament Tickets and Player cards! You can also get some free Energy Drinks for your Daily Login and you can find some in the Incidents around your city!

Once you have access to the Soccer Event from the logo on the top left corner of your screen, you will see that this year's event window is different:

2020 Soccer Event Main Window.png

As you can see you can either train your team (on the left side of the event window) or go straight to the Tournament Arena (on the right side of the event window). As you can see the event window is split in two halves and it contains six key elements, starting from left:

  • On the top left corner is your Team. It shows you all the Players that you currently have available and their current Level.
  • Pressing the Training button, it will take you to the Training Window and below it is the number of the available Soccer icon energy.png Energy Drinks
  • Right under the Energy Drinks you will find the Training Daily Special

Moving to the right half of the Event Window:

  • At the top you will see the Top Three Players in your Worlds Tournament and your position in it
  • By pressing the Tournament button you will be directed to the Tournament Arena and below this button the number of Soccer tickets icon.png tickets you currently have
  • and finally under your tickets you will find the Tournament Daily Special

Training Event Window

In the training arena, you will decide how to pass the ball from one player to another, to eventually reach the goal of the opposing team. Every pass will offer you a different selection of rewards including a chance to get the Daily Special or player cards. and will advance one step closer to the coveted goal reward. Click on the question mark above every player to see what you can win.

It takes more energy to pass the ball to players further down the field. It's your choice how quickly you want to advance to the Goal! Passing the ball is hard work! Your players will need to replenish their energy, resulting in each pass you will spend some of your Energy Drinks. Complete quests in order to get more. You can also find a small amount of Energy Drinks, from time to time, in regular incidents in your city.


Here you can also access your Team on the left corner, in the middle of the window you'll find the Daily Special and on the right corner there is the number of the available energy drinks. You can buy some more with Diamonds by pressing the Plusbutton.png button. On the right side of the Training Window you can see the current Goal Reward and following two.

Player Cards

Player Cards will either unlock a new player or make one of your current players stronger. By clicking on Team you can view the players you have collected. Adding a new player to your team means you will also be able to pass the ball to this player in the training arena. You can click on a player card to see which rewards you can get by passing the ball to this player. The higher level your player is, the higher your chance is to get double the rewards. You can see the double reward chance on the player cards of each player.


Buy more Player Cards by pressing thePlusbutton.png button next to Soccer avatar icon.pngcards icon. You can buy 10, 50 or 200 random Cards with Diamonds

Tournament Arena

In the tournament arena, you can challenge the teams of other players to climb the global rankings. You start off by choosing the difficulty of the match you play, either easy, medium, or hard. After choosing the difficulty, your goal is to pick the best team to defeat your opponent. The percentage on your screen shows you your chance of winning the match. Choose the best player combination and levels to improve your chance to win. Make sure to keep in mind the strengths and weaknesses of the soccer players. Attacking players are effective against midfielders, midfielders are effective against defenders, and defenders are effective against attackers. Once you finish selecting your team you click on the button in the middle of the screen to see the results of the match.
