Dream League Soccer, called DLS too, is an association football video game developed and published by First Touch Games, a game developer from Oxford, England, for iOS and Android. It was announced on 2 December 2011 and released on 8 December 2011 on the App Store for iOS platforms.[1][2] On 29 November 2013, it was released on the Google Play Store for Android.[3]

Since 2016, First Touch Games has been releasing major updates for the game.

Gameplay[edit]

A player-controlled striker attacks a goal defended by the in-game AI in an Elite Division match.

Dream League Soccer allows the creation of a dream football club. The player starts the game by becoming the manager of a team called Dream FC, which will have random players within the squad. Players can customize the team name, soccer boots, kits and logo.[4]

There are six divisions through which to build one's way to the top: Academy Division, Division 3, Division 2, Division 1, Junior Elite Division and the Elite Division. The user starts in the Academy Division; the aim is to reach the Elite Division as well as completing season objectives and be the best team on the planet. Winning the Elite Division allows the player to compete in additional tournaments, including the International Cup and the Allstars Cup. Winning these two trophies will also allow one to compete in the First Touch Challenge and the Ultimate Challenge, with the former challenge seeing a match-off between the user and First Touch United, with players being actual staff from First Touch Games. In the Ultimate Challenge mode the player plays against a clone of their own team which has exactly the same players as well as player abilities.

One can name, upgrade and edit a stadium and battle with other teams with real life managers in the Dream League Online mode.

The game also includes a multi-player mode in which Wi-Fi connection is required between the two players to be able to play.

The game is free to play, with in-game items that can be bought with real money.
