Edit
As a coach, you get to take a look at your opponent, unambiguously determine his weaknesses and put your tactics on display to defeat even a stronger opponent. In the living world developing along with you, each match turns into a football puzzle. The tactile sensation of managing footballers like pieces on a chess board. Meanwhile, each footballer is unique. In time, you will recognize each of them by their faces and you will have a particular attitude toward each of them. This game is about strategic planning, not micromanagement. Instead of spending time enhancing some characteristic by 0.01%, you make “big” decisions that noticeably affect the destiny of your club. This eliminates the boring side of football manager games – countless tables, a whole routine, and micromanagement.

This is not even a sport I follow much, but with that being said, here is an excellent merger of soccer (football) and turn based tactics which keeps me immersed for hours on end. It is so much fun to build a team and get to know your players. Pretty deep stats and excellent tutorials for new players to get quickly acclimated to this highly enjoyable game. Money well spent. Thank you Devs for such an excellent game!

Unlike in EA's FIFA or SI's Football Manager, I can now successfully use defensive tactics that would make the old Italian masters weep in awe and terror. This game challenges my understanding of modern football with formations governed by a cursed geometry beyond comprehension.
This is a dynamic and ever-changing fantasy universe where strong clubs exist all around the world, where an African team has a fighting chance in the Club World Cup. Europe is no longer the undisputed superpower, though they still enjoy an early advantage. The game features 4 large Champions League style systems (Europe, Asia, Africa, the combined Americas), along with country rankings that change as clubs perform better. North American fans might be happy to see US, Canadian, and Mexican clubs in the Libertadores competition. If you are familiar with the European system of promotion/relegation and their Champions League and Europa League, you should know that every country and continent follows this system. MLS clubs can now be relegated into the 4 leagues below them, but now your little hometown team has a chance to rise to the top and challenge Real Madrid for the Club World Cup.
If you like obsessively creating teams, logos, etc, the in-game editor allows you to do this at any time, even in the middle of a campaign. You can also rename all the league and tournaments. Mods can also do this for you.
I love Xcom and sports management games, so this is a nice mix. But the game can be brutal, especially if you skip the tutorials like me, and manage to get promoted into a higher division against the odds. This is the first football game where I've suffered relegation.
My only complaint is that you are forced into de facto "iron man" mode. There is no real save system, no save slots, it just auto-saves. If you want to revert to an earlier stage in your campaign, you'll need to start making backups of your saves (Documents / Creoteam / Football Tactics / saveGame).
(Note I reviewed this with all DLC, so I don't know where the vanilla game end and the DLC begins.)

Really innovative and fun football tactics/rpg game. Even though dev team is from Ukraine they still provide consistent updates which puts a lot of other devs to shame imo.

Don't make the mistake and never go full RNG.

I've played alot of BloodBowl. Football, Tactics & Glory while not swinging the heavier budget and better name- it eclipses the only other turn-based tactics sport game in its genre.
Srsly hope the additions keep coming to this game its a hidden gem.

XCOM, but soccer - what's not to like?
