Eleven - this number of players you have on the pitch at any given time makes all the difference between being the best team and the worst. But every team knows that to be the best in the league it takes a lot more – it takes an incredible manager.

Eleven is a competitive strategy game for 1 to 4 players set in a world of sport. Your task is to manage and grow your own football club over the course of a season and outperform other teams.
To ensure the success of your club you will have various tools at your disposal. Club budget provides cash flow for the operations, Fan base drives new fans to the club. Team spirit shows if the team is willing to go the extra mile when needed, and Form represents how much of a talent and special abilities can be played during the match. 
The most important asset in a team is its people. During the game, you will transfer new players to the club and hire staff members, such as Doctors, Fitness Trainers or Mental Coaches. Players contribute their Strength to the team, while the best professionals bring special abilities that can be used during the match!
Before every match you will use your tactic board to create a match formation. Just like Pep or Jose, you will assign your players defensive or offensive tasks for the match. You will spend Form and Team Spirit resources to boost some of the players in order to have the best possible team for the match.
You will also develop club infrastructure. Build additional stands, ads bands, stadium lighting, or additional training ground. All this may be expensive, but crucial for the growth of the club!
As the game progresses and your team climbs up the league table, you are getting closer to the moment the board will evaluate your work. Not only your position in the league table matters. You must also show progress in stadium renovation, good financial standings, and fulfill some secret goals your board gave you at the start of the season!
Eleven is a game which offers a unique way to experience the football manager. You can play it with others and enjoy the interactions at the table when fighting for the players on the transfer market and competing in the league. This is a 1-2 hours experience that every fan of strategy games will love. 

You can also play Eleven solo. The game comes with an exciting, scenario-driven solo variant in which you are challenged with unique and difficult situations – having to save the club from bankruptcy, relegation, and others!

Eleven is created by the Dutch designer Thomas Jansen. It can be played by 1-4 players aged 14+ and the gameplay lasts 60-120 minutes.
