A game or match is a single outing between two clubs.

Official matches, also reffered to as competitive matches, include all league, qualification, and cup matches. Friendlies and friendly cups do not count as competitive matches, though they are important for the development of a team.

Tournaments and ladders competition are something in between a official and a friendly match. They are alternative matches where players cannot get injured and cards do not affect your regular league or cup games.

For national teams, matches include international friendlies and all World Cup qualification and main stages.

Team Spirit is affected by several factors, but mainly by team Attitude you choose before the matches:

  • "playing it cool" will raise team spirit by approximately 1/3, lowering midfield ratings for the match;
  • a "normal" setting will not affect team spirit or midfield;
  • playing a "match of the season" will reduce team spirit by approximately 1/2, boosting midfield in return.
