In a world truly dominated by fantasy football and the juggernaut that is FIFA, fans across the globe have been crying out for a new type of addictive football game; a game to challenge the norm and have us hooked as we enter the festive fixture list.

Enter Barcode Football, the free iOS and Android football management app with a unique way of interacting with everyday life.

Simple and easy to grasp; Barcode Football is the world’s first and only barcode football management game, with managers charged with constructing their own teams, training them up, and taking on other players online in a bid to win top prizes.

Barcodes are everywhere, you can’t get away from them; but with Barcode Football, you won’t want to, as with every barcode you scan in, you score a new player for your in-game squad!

The novelty of finding new players has not worn off for us at Soccerlens, and we are still running around drafting in new and interesting talent via the tags of recently purchased Christmas presents and chocolate wrappers. Any EAN or UPC barcode does the job, with huge satisfaction earned from seeing your discovered players leading your team to victory.

With so many barcodes around, you may even come across a brand new player, never before seen in the game, and have the privilege of naming him!
