Yesterday at gamescom, Strikerz Inc. game studio announced UFL - "a revolutionary new global online football league". The new gaming title will be available on all major gaming consoles with the release date to be announced soon.

“We are football fans and passionate gamers — we have been playing football video games for years and we know exactly what people want to see in a football simulator,” said Eugene Nashilov, CEO at Strikerz Inc., “We want to reinvent football video gaming from the ground up, offering players around the world a revolutionary, exciting and fair to play experience. We can’t wait to share more about the game.”

UFL Football Game Announced

UFL has been in development since 2016. The game will be available for free and we will regularly add new features and updates with no mandatory payments or yearly fees.

UFL is free-to-play

UFL Graphics

UFL is being developed in Unreal Engine. Developed by Epic Games, the engine is used in a number of high-profile game titles, including PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Valorant, and Yoshi’s Crafted World.


No gameplay footage of UFL has been showcased yet. The game "is designed to be a fair to play experience that implies a skill-first approach and zero pay-to-win options."

IN UFL, gamers "can compete with other gamers worldwide to prove their skills and climb to the very top of the league".


The UFL logo boasts the letters UFL in modern angular style in black on a Punch red background. The game's motto is "Fair to Play".

Release Date

UFL will launch "soon". We expect it to come out at the end of this year (FIFA 22 is dropping on 1 October).


UFL does not feature big licenses like EA Sports' FIFA or also Konami's eFootball. Instead, in UFL, players will be able to create their own football clubs made up of more than 5000 licensed footballers.

“After years in development, we’re thrilled to see UFL enter the arena at a time when technological advances present new opportunities to create the most authentic digital representation of football ever known,” said Andrew Orsatti, FIFPRO’s Director of Marketing and Business Development.

Strikerz Inc. has secured the licenses of 65,000 professional footballers thanks to a deal with FIFPRO. FIFPRO is the world’s biggest representative organization for professional footballers. EA and Konami of course also have signed deals with FIFPRO.

UFL announced partnership deals with West Ham United and Hashtag United on the day of the big reveal. West Ham's Olympic Stadium will feature in the game.

Strikerz Inc. partnered up with InStat for player's data and stats. InStat is one of the leading sports performance analysis companies, who will provide detailed data and up-to-date statistics for each player.


UFL will be free-to-play. There will be "zero pay-to-win options". We expect the game to offer extra packages like stadiums or kits for extra money.
