Top eleven Rules



League Structure:

It’s hard enough understanding soccer leagues in real life, with all the permutations surrounding who will get promoted or relegated to where and why. In Top Eleven, a league has 15 teams including your own. The game will always try to match you up with friends, but it you have none already playing in a league, you will be grouped with strangers. It is at this point that you will realise how Top Eleven differs from the likes of Football Msnager – you are playing against real people, making real decisions and putting real time into the game, just like you are. It must be one of the most social, social games out there.

Each season has 26 fixtures, as in most leagues in real life, every team plays every other team twice, home and away. The League is modelled on Europe’s top divisions, with the best four fnishing teams in each league going into the Champions League. The top seven teams in each league move up a level and come the next season, will be regrouped with other teams of the same ability – and any friends you have at this point too.


NOTE: You will not necessarily be in a League that matches up exactly with your level. If you have lots of friends at higher levels than you, or if there are gaps in other levels that the game needs someone like you to fill, you may find yourself in a slightly harder League than your experience warrants. The difference in ability still shouldn’t be too great.

NOTE: It may look as though you are missing some of your prize money from the Champions League. This can be misleading as you are paid after every match that you play – so the total prize money for the Champions League actually includes all of the matches that you play on the way to the final.

NOTE: It’s easy to go in and out of some Facebook games, forgetting about them for a while until your friends talk you back into it. Bear in mind that with Top Eleven, you only have 70 days of inactivity (i.e. not logging into the game) before your team is completely deleted. You will not be able to get them back.

Getting Started

The first time you play Top Eleven Football Manager, you will be asked to name your club. You should pick something distinctive so that you stand out from the crowd and to your friends. After this, you can select your nationality and city. You can also pick out a logo and choose the colors that your team is going to be playing in.

The game features a tutorial to introduce you to the basics of navigating the shop in Top Eleven. For the immediate purposes, just click on the Create Your Own Jersey button. You can then pick the color and the pattern to make it distinctive. These initial customization options are free, but as you progress through the game and look at some of the more complex options, you would be expected to pay for them. You can set up your own unique Home and Away jerseys.

Pick your strip and your crest to personalize your team.

With that done, select the shield icon, which represents your club’s logo. There really aren’t many options at the moment – they want you to have to pay to customize your logo just like you want it, but that is ultimately up to you. You can store logos, jerseys, and any other items that you acquire in Storage. This may seem a bit odd as they are not physical items – you need to remember to ‘equip’ each of these before they actuall come into use.

With that out of the way, you are given $100,000 in Cash to work with, as well as 5 Tokens to get you going.



Compared to many Facebook games, Top Eleven has quite an intimidating menu system. There are News, Squad, Training, Fixtures, Competition, Transfers, Finances, Stadium, Club Information and Trophy Room.

News lists all of the important announcements that have come into your club. These can include things like new sponsorship offers, player injuries and team news.

Squad is probably the screen that you will use the most. You can see your current team line-up and set the formation and tactics ahead of your next match. You should take care to examine the map of each player’s abilities in this screen, as it shows you the areas where they are strongest and weakest, allowing you to pick their best position on the pitch.

Training is pretty self explanatory, as it allows you to manage the training of all your players. You can pick the training regime and organize practice matches.

Fixtures show you the upcoming matches and allow you to see match reports from completed games. This screen also lets you see the fixtures that your friends have upcoming.

Competitions shows you the current position of your team, as well as things like the top goalscorer and leader for assists. It is a good place to catch up on all the stats available in Top Eleven.

Transfers is where you can view players on the transfer list, search for players to buy, and manage any offers that have come in for your own players.

Finances is an important section to keep an eye on as you need to make sure you don’t spend too long in the red.

Stadium is where you can upgrade all the facilities of your club. This allows you to increase the maximum capactiy of your ground and so potentially attract more fans.

Club Information is simply where you can see and edit the basic details of your club.

The Trophy Room displays all of the successes that your team has made.
