"Flick Kick Football and the Flick Kick series have reached a huge number of gamers and sports fans," PikPok MD Mario Wynands said.
"We continue to build on the success of the franchise and brand with more updates, releases, and are looking at additional sports to bring to the PikPok family."

Flick Kick Football is available on iPhone for 59p / 99c / €0.79, while Flick Kick Chelsea can be purchased for £1.19 / $1.99 / €1.59.
