FIFA 21 Pro Clubs offers an overall better experience for all Pro Clubs players with the addition of increased customization for your Virtual Pro, your teammates, and new ways to play with your squad.
FIFA 21 Pro Clubs New Features
The new features of FIFA 21 Pro Clubs can be grouped into two groups: AI Player Customization and Tactics.
AI Player Customization
New this year is the ability for Club Managers to customize the AI Players in their Club. You’ll find a new tile under the ‘manage’ section in Pro Clubs, from which managers will be able to customize the visual appearance, name and kit of the 20+ AI Players on their team.
A club will have AI players to customize in each position for all formations that can be found in the game. All club members will have access to the tile and are able to view all of the AI players being customized, but only club managers will be able to edit an AI Player. Personalize your own team and work together with your club mates on the pitch to showcase your customized avatars. Managers can customize the following:
– Name (First/Last/Known As/Commentary/Kit Name)
– Kit Number
– Birth (Date/Nationality/Region)
– Preferred foot
– Skin Tone
– Facial Hair
– Kit Fit
– Accessories (Gloves, Boots, Wristbands, Sock Tape)
– Animations (Running Style, Celebrations)
Club Managers can now customize up to five preset tactics which can be found in another new tile under the ‘Manage’ section in Pro Clubs. Each preset tactic can have all five-game plans customized (Ultra Defensive, Defensive, Balanced, Attacking, Ultra Attacking). A Club Manager can select 1 of the 5 tactics from the tactics page to begin customization. Select and customize each game plan to fit your team’s custom or unique play style. The newly customized AI Players will also appear on the tactic menus. Club Managers can provide instructions to their AI Players to ensure they match your play style.
Once customized in the Tactics menu tile located in the Manage tab, you can go to the Pro Clubs Match Lobby and select one of the 5 new presets that have just been created. This will allow you to load the customized Tactic Presets to play with different friends or vary strategies based on which club members are available to play. Take to the pitch and try out your newly defined tactics with your customized AI Players and fellow club mates.
If you just want to hop into a quick Pro Clubs match, and only want to edit the formation, you’ll still have the ability to customize your Club’s formation and not the tactics. This can be found in the first tactic option in a match lobby as shown below.
