I'm pretty sure it aired at MBC 3. It’s a cartoon about playing football to save the planet. It’s not Galactik Football or Team Galaxy. I remember one blond boy with poofy hair I think he wore something blue when playing.

When they would play it would look like they are in a round sphere, and maybe the ball was blue too and it had something special about it. I do remember something else. They had to keep it a secret from their parents, and also whenever someone scores, the ball disappears and comes back in the middle.

    They're referencing that American Football and Australian Football are distinct from Association Football, which is called Soccer in the United States (basically because we kept the name the English were using for it at the time, and never switched back).

There’s the anime Inazuma Eleven GO: Galaxy:

In order to save Earth from elimination, Earth Eleven must win through the [soccer] tournament against all kinds of aliens...

All the humans wear blue and white. I’m not sure if there’s something special about the ball, but it does seem to be engulfed in blue fire at one point (near the start of episode 38).


This sounds like it might be Galactik Football, which did air on MBC 3.

Cover image of the Snow Kids

Galactik Football is a 2006 French animated television series produced by Gaumont Alphanim that mixes conventional 2D animation with 3D computer graphics. Its third 26-episode season aired in Europe in June 2010.

In the universe of Galactik Football, the inhabited worlds of the Zaelion Galaxy compete in Galactik Football, a sport analogous to football, but played seven to a side. The game is complicated by the addition of the Flux, a magical energy which 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.

Watching some clips online, the stadium does seem to be in a sphere sort of shape. There isn't a boy with poofy blond hair, but Tia matches that description otherwise, and they all wear blue on their uniforms. The color of the ball varies, but there are episodes with partly blue balls to be certain.

Maybe Next Gen I don't remember the blond boy (but there is a blond dog ...) There is soccer (football), but it is not the the primary plot, but used in the relationships with the bot and bullies.

enter image description here

enter image description here

It tells the story of Mai Su, a lonely rebellious teenage girl living in a world where sentient robot technology is commonplace, and 7723, a top-secret weaponized robot, who, through a chance encounter, meet each other and form an unlikely bond that they must use to stop a vicious threat.


This might be Sendokai Champions (2013-2014).

Zak, Cloe, Kiet and Fenzy are four unpopular kids from Earth who are not very good at sports. One day they find bracelets that have the power to transport them to another dimension. There they meet Tänpo, the master, who explains that the Zorn Empire is about to conquer the Multiverse. The Earth is in danger and, if they want to save it, there is only one way: they will have to overcome their weaknesses, learn the art of Sendokai to become warriors, and win the Great Sendokai Tournament of the Multiverse.

A group of four kids are transported to another dimension and drafted by a small, elderly alien, named Tänpo, to take part in a football-like tournament called Sendokai, which they need to win in order to prevent the Zorn Empire from conquering the Earth.

The main character, Zak, has spiky blond hair, and all four kids wear wristbands that allow them to transport back & forth between Earth and the other dimension/s, although Tänpo informs them that they must keep the tournament a secret from their parents.

Different balls are used in various episodes, but the ball they initially train with is a brown sphere surrounded by spherical teal enclosure. The kids gain powers in the other dimension/s, so all sorts of outlandish trick shots are possible.

Before any goals can be scored in the game though, the force field blocking the goal mouth must first be struck with the ball three times, at which point it vanishes. After that, a goal can be scored, and the first goal scored wins the game.
