Final Fantasy X How to win first against the goers

This page contains a guide for your first blitzball game against the Luca Goers in Final Fantasy X (FFX , FF10). This page will teach you how to win your first blitzball game and win the tournament.

How to Beat the Luca Goers

Switch to Normal Mode

Don't leave it to the AI or you'll lose badly. At the start of the game, immediately switch to normal mode (type wouldn't make a difference). Once you do, the game becomes way easier.

Shoot like Crazy

Tidus is the only shooter in your team that has a higher shoot stat than the enemy goalie. Tidus is placed in the same area as Abus. Abus has 3 ATK (Goers right forward).

Go through him with Letty or Jassu. Head to the rear and lure Balgerda. Tidus will head in, pass the ball to him and score a free goal.

Second Half Jecht Shot

If the Jecht Shot is learned, a free point can easily be taken. Lure the midfielder and the forwards of the Goers.
FFX Blitzball  Jecht Shot

Pass the ball to Tidus and make him use the Jecht Shot at melee range. This will eliminate the two rear letting you get a free score.

Second Half Sphere Shot

If the Jecht Shot is not learned, we will need to use the same strategy in the first half. Lure in Balgerda, pass the ball to Tidus, score a free goal.

Second Half Wakka

Again, the same strategy from the first half will work. We will just swap Wakka for Tidus. There are only 2 minutes left in the game so make everything count.


Strength Sphere and a Trophy

Final Fantasy X Strength Sphere
After the battle, you will be rewarded with a Strength Sphere. This is extremely valuable in the early part of the game and will boost the damage of your chosen character.

Later on, you will also see a cutscene with Wakka holding the cup before saying his farewells.
