How to get Panda to join your team in Soccer Story

Pandas apparently sleep to meditate.

Now that you have assembled your team in Soccer Story, you will need to get a captain, specifically an animal captain. Bob informs you that Panda should likely be somewhere in the Woodlands, in his cave. This may leave you wondering where to find Panda and how to get him to join your team.

Where to find Panda in Soccer Story

Bob tasks you with finding Panda in Soccer Story and asks you to go to his cave, which is east of the pitch on the north wall. However, upon arriving, Panda will not be there. Make sure you examine the back of the cave and the jam jars at the cave entrance. Then, follow the trail of jam until you come to the stone circle in the middle of the Woodlands. Here you will find Panda, but he will be fast asleep and must be woken up.

How to wake up Panda in Soccer Story

To wake up Panda in Soccer Story, you must follow a specific order of steps. You first need to go to the cave and examine both the cave and the jam jars in front of it. Then, follow this to the stone circle in the middle of the Woodland. You will need to get the bell to the left of Panda.

To get the bell, kick your soccer ball at it. This will knock it loose and let you pick it up and add it to your inventory. With the bell in hand, return to Panda and speak to him. You will ring the bell and wake him up. You will need to undergo a series of tests before Panda joins your team.

These include a shooting test where you must use the controlled boots to place the ball in the goal Panda appears on. You will also need to score ten goals against Panda. Finally, you will need to complete a dribbling test, though Panda upgrades your energy beforehand. Once you complete all three tasks, Panda will join your team.

Why can’t I wake up Panda in Soccer Story?

You may be having trouble waking up Panda, even after you get the bell. This is because regardless of whether you find Panda and the bell, you must go to the cave. At the cave, you must examine the back of the cave and the jars of jam in front of it. If you do not do this, you will not be able to wake up Panda and get him to join your team.

  1. I can’t get it to let me in to the woodlands! Help me. Lol.

    1. Hello there; sorry to hear you are having issues! What specifically are you having trouble with? You must first collect the three teammates before you can enter the Woodlands. Once you do, you will be able to go to Panda’s Cave and then find Panda in the center of the Woodlands.
