Galactik Football is an Irish-French animated television series produced by Gaumont Alphanim that mixes conventional 2D animation with 3D computer graphics. It originally aired from 3 June 2006 to 27 October 2011.[2]

Galactik Football sets in the far future, where the inhabited worlds of the Zaelion Galaxy compete in Galactik Football, a sport analogous to association football, but played seven to a side. The game is complicated by the addition of the Flux, a cosmic energy that enhances a player's attributes such as speed, strength, and agility, or grants special powers such as teleportation. The story follows the fate of an inexperienced Galactik Football team, the Snow Kids, as they aim to compete in and win the Galactik Football Cup.[3]


Season 1

The story begins during a soccer match between the home team of planet Akillian and the Shadows. As Aarch, captain of the Akillians, takes a direct free kick, an explosion is heard and an avalanche sweeps over the stadium, marking the beginning of the Akillian Ice Age and the loss of The Breath, Akillian's Flux.

The storyline jumps forward 15 years. Aarch and his friend Clamp, a robotic technician, arrive back in Akillian for the first time since the game. Aarch aims to create a new Akillian Galactik Soccar team capable of winning the Cup and selects a group of talented teenagers for his team: D'Jok, Sinedd, Micro-Ice, Mei, Thran, Ahito, Rocket, and Tia. However, Rocket's father and Aarch's brother do not want him on the team and agree only to let him play on the condition that the newly named Snow Kids win a match against the incumbent Akillian team, the Red Tigers, who are coached by Aarch's estranged old friend and team-mate, Artegor Nexus. During her tryout, Tia reveals that she has the power of the long-lost Breath of Akillian.

The Snow Kids beat the Red Tigers, becoming the new Akillian team. However, an embittered Artegor lures Sinedd away from the Snow Kids and recruits him to the Shadows, whom he has agreed to coach.

As the Snow Kids progress through the competition, each develops the Breath of Akillian. There are some intra-team tensions caused by Tia and Rocket's burgeoning relationship and Micro-Ice's unrequited crush on Mei. Unknown to any of them is that all seven of the players have been affected by the Meta-Flux, a synthetic undetectable Flux, inadvertently created by Clamp and pirate Sonny Blackbones, which was the true origin of the Akillian Ice Age. This Flux is now coveted by the ruthless General Bleylock, who happily endangers the Snow Kids to get his hands on it.

With the help of Clamp and his old partner, the pirate Sonny Blackbones, the Snow Kids escape General Bleylock's machinations and win the Galactik Soccar Cup.

Season 2

In season 2, Ahito falls ill and is replaced as a goalkeeper by his cousin Yuki. Also, Rocket is suspended from the team due to illegal use of The Breath and is replaced by Mark, another young Akillian soccar player, who had previously been considered as a substitute player. In Rocket's absence, D'Jok is made captain. After Ahito's recovery he and Yuki share duties as goalkeeper and upon finding in his favor the League allows Rocket to return to the team, which he eventually did. D'Jok remains captain on Rocket's return and leads the team to a second consecutive GFC victory.

Season 3

A year after their second Galactic Soccar Cup victory in succession, the mysterious Lord Phoenix invites everyone in the galaxy to a special mixed-flux tournament on the planet Paradisia. After a bad friendly match against the Shadows, D'Jok and Mei have an argument. Mei dumps D'Jok and joins the Shadows. Yuki leaves the Snow Kids temporarily to join the Elektras, and D'Jok leaves the team after being recruited by Team Paradisia. A Wamba named Lun-Zia joins the Snow Kids for the mixed-flux tournament. Due to the injection of flux in the core of the Planet Paradisia, Paradisia explodes but luckily everyone was evacuated from the planets with the help of the Galactik Soccar Players. There is also the Galactik Soccar Cup which was won by the Snow Kids vs Team Paradisia. This made the Snow kids win the 3 cups.

Disney XD UK aired the first 8 episodes of season 3 in 2010. It was 10 October 2011 before Disney XD was able to air episode 9 of season 3. The remaining episodes have been aired on consecutive days, with the series finale airing on 27 October 2011.[citation needed]



Club Galactik

Galactik Soccar was to have its own virtual world and an internet MMO game called Club Galactik.[6] Development of the game was announced in early 2009 by the show's producer, Alphanim, and MMO game publisher Virtual Fairground.[7][8] The project went to development hell, briefly went online with a website,[9] and was never fully published after Virtual Fairground went bankrupt in 2011.[10]
