This version of FIFA 11 is designed for touch-based mobile devices. In addition to single matches it features leagues, cups and a practice arena. In both leagues and cups it is possible to either play the matches or to simulate them. Some team management options exist. The player can pick a formation and a starting eleven as well as kick takers and team styles. Team styles include playing with counter attacks, zonal marking, attacking full-backs and many more options.
The game is entirely played with touch controls. A d-pad is used for moving the players around and three context-sensitive buttons are used for actions. In offence these are short, pass and throughball while in defence they are slide, switch and sprint tackle. For simple manoeuvres the player simply taps the buttons, but for more complex actions it's possible to make swipes from the buttons. To make a finesse shot, the player presses the pass button and then makes an upwards swipe while the same motion from the shoot button makes a chip. Other actions include swiping team-mates to make them run forward and double-tapping a player for a skill move.
