Tuesday 10th October/...The world of online football management simulations is set to be rocked by the commercial release of coreFootball, a multiplayer, head-to-head, football management game that allows would-be 'arm-chair' football managers to pit their football knowledge against thousands of other managers in an innovative game of skill played for an amazing range of cash prizes.
Winning cash with coreFootball comes down to instinctive football management skill applied within minutes using any available online terminal. In coreFootball you simply: pick-up a virtual or fantasy team; schedule weekly training regimes, apply formation and tactics; give a pre-match team-talk; then enter the dug-out to compete in live and interactive matches.
All live games are displayed through the manager's chosen Internet browser, with traditional 2D pitch views or full 3D close-ups, complete with in-line commentary and interactive match controls for in-game tactical adjustments. Every live match can be viewed by other members as it happens, allowing managers to study form and keep an eagle eye on any players they may want to sign for their own teams in an 'auction style' cash-for-player transfer market
To take online football gaming into the next generation, coreFootball has developed advanced 'artificial intelligence' driven software to deliver a simulation that can generate thousands of 'virtual-reality' football matches in real-time. This remarkable new technology allows players to test their skills against other managers from all over the world, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in a wide range of on-demand and pre-scheduled challenge, league and tournament competitions.
Free membership and the opportunity to win up-to £5,000 monthly are available to all mangers. Subscribers get access to much bigger cash prize opportunities. Any user can log on and jump straight into an instant head to head challenge match against any other manager. Those who like to have an extra edge to their competition can put up their own cash against their opponents in 'winner takes all' instant cash challenges for up to £10,000. Private tournaments can be arranged with competitors agreeing their own entry-fees and cash prize-funds. There are also a multitude of official leagues, around-the-clock tournaments and cash accumulators for paying managers. Prizes can rise to a mammoth £100,000 for sponsored high-roller and roll-over accumulator tournaments, which will occur on a regular basis.
The whole coreFootball experience is backed up with an extensive online community with forums, matchTALK rooms and instant messaging allowing managers to interact with each other in almost any way they choose.
Dr Darrin M Disley, Chief Operating Officer of Global coreSports said, "The coreFootball business model is more like that of online poker than it is to the traditional subscription based model of online football simulations. Our customers typically spend between 10 mins to an hour online and during which time they typically have: checked-out where they stand in the community prize-list and accumulator standings; thrown down a cash challenge to another manager online; entered a tournament on-demand and finally; either left with their cash in a blaze of pomp and glory or licking their wounds plotting their next foray. With coreFootball it's Real Matches, Big Cash, Right Now"
Those keen to be part of the next generation of online football management can visit the coreFootball website at www.corefootball.com to sign up and play.
Global coreSports is currently giving all new managers £5 in promotional credits and is offering its first 250 members a £5 cash credit and a free £20 entry into its first end-of-season tournament carrying a cash prize of £20,000.
