Get Started – The Basics – Football Fred
Before you dive into the Football Fred tips, cheats & strategy guide part, let’s learn the basics first. Let’s start with the controls: –
- Drag your finger on the screen to move the player where you want
- Drag the joystick from center to the extreme point(at high) to sprint
- Pass the ball to a teammate by swiping towards him
- Slide or long swipe to shoot
- Tap(with ball) to perform dribble move
- Tap on the player(on the field) to select it and control him manually
- Tackle: Go towards the opponent at high speed(Sprint) to perform a tackle
On Field Rules: Player’s Speed/Stamina and Dribble Meter
Football Fred is a fast-paced game in which the stamina of the player matters a lot. The player is advised to use the stamina wisely. The stamina of the player gets consumed when you sprint, dribble. Drag the joystick or virtual pad lightly to move at average speed. When you drag it at an extreme point, sprint mode will get activated. And you will see the stamina(green bar) above the player’s head.
We would recommend you to sprint wisely or use the stamina wisely; when you are close to the goal post or opponents are surrounding you.
Passing – You should keep an eye on all the players on the screen. There would be a circle at the bottom of your teammate. Keep an eye on this symbol and pass quickly/accurately.
Dribble – If you see the opponent is going to tackle(when the ball is with you), you should perform dribble move, at the right time and then change the direction. But it will cost you stamina(too much though). You just tap the screen to dribble.
The player’s speed gets reduced once its stamina reaches 0.
Injured players cannot be included in the team. The game will notify you with a pop-up message if there is an injured player in your team. You should substitute it. Go to the team tab -> there you will see a bandage icon above the player’s portrait. Replace him with another player until he recovers.
How To Get Players?
Winning the matches in the cup rewards you a player pack. You have four free slots. So you can store up to four packs. However, opening the package takes time. From this package, you can obtain new player cards. Additionally, In the shop tab, you can buy players in exchange for coins or buy packs in exchange for green gems.
In the team tab, above the player’s portrait or card, you can check the stars. The number of stars determines the rarity of a player. For example: –
- Common – 1*
- Rare – 2*
- Epic – 3*
- Legendary – 4*
Player Upgrading And Evolving
In Football Fred game, all the players have different stats; speed, stamina, defense, dribble, and more. Without upgrading the players, one can not grab the cup as it would be difficult to beat high-level players. There are two ways to level up a player – gain XP or use other players. When you play the match in Football Fred or play Mini-games, players in your team gain XP. XP is required to level up.
Or go to the team tab -> tap the player -> head to the upgrade tab -> select the players to sacrifice in order to gain XP.
Evolving – After a certain upgrade, the player will be able to evolve. Evolving boosts the player’s stats by the massive stats and unlocks new perks(check the perks in the info tab).
Energy Drink is required to play the game. However, you can play mini-games without energy. But if you have, the game will consume it and in return, the player will earn more XP as a reward. Energy Drink restores automatically. So this is the basic Football Fred guide for the beginners. Now, let’s read our top Football Fred tips, cheats & strategies to master the game.

When close to the goal post, shoot accurately; play the mini-game named Kick To Targets to improve shooting. When shooting; you have to slide wisely(short when you are close, long+at extreme when far away from the goal post).
