CopaSocca starts casting: "You and Lukas Podolski in one team"

Hamburg, October 13th: German National Team player Lukas Podolski is now putting his footballing talents to the test in the CopaSocca league, as well as in the Bundesliga. 

In the Facebook game you have to develop your own football talent from the local pitch to the top of the first international Copa league.

Lukas Podolski can be challenged by anyone as he competes with thousands of players from all over the world for promotion in a special tournament. With this in mind, he is turning to his 670,000 Facebook friends to select two players for his team.  This scouting process takes place by means of a simple application on Facebook, in which players demonstrate both their ball skills and their sense of humour.

Podolski comments on the selection of his teammates: “I know plenty of players who want to be as good as I am, but hardly any who are as funny … but those are the ones we are looking for.”

After the casting phase the winners will get digitized and become a part of his VIP-Team within a special tournament. 

The casting lasts until October 26th on the following Facebook event page:

CopaSocca was created and published by Pop Rocket Games and its approach of creating an egocentric football manager has brought something new onto the market in the social gaming industry. The game is available Free2Play to anyone who has a Facebook profile at:
