KICK OFF: Pop Rocket publishes CopaSocca on Facebook

In the Facebook game CopaSocca, it's all about developing the player's own football talent - from kicking around on the playground to the pinnacle of the international Copa League. The player begins his own virtual football career on the social networking site Facebook. He can kick his way into the Copa Stadium through rigorous training and success in numerous matches.

MANAGE THE MOST VALUABLE FOOTBALL PLAYER IN THE WORLD - BE YOUR OWN MANAGER

Along the path towards glory, players can develop their football skills, earn money, invest in better kit, play a whole lot of football with and against their facebook friends and marvel at their successes in their own trophy room. With their team, and the players themselves as captain, they start right at the bottom and, in 7-day seasons, fight for promotion or relegation in the different divisions.

CopaSocca is an easy pastime to get started in and demands no prior knowledge of playing football. As long as you can write emails, you can play CopaSocca. It can be played for hours on end, and doesn't cost a thing

- those who want to make rapid progress can do so by purchasing better kit such as new football shoes, energy drinks and other useful items.

Key Points:

- Facebook manager focussing on the player as football star

- experience football from a completely new perspective

- two-stage, weekly competition for league and top scorer positions

- can also be played on an iPad browser
