  1. I would like to play a co-op match / season. I`m currently in Division 2 online, but i`ll reach 1 for sure. Xbox players, add me up : NoStress87

  2. i am struggling to understand how i can never catch up to my opponents attackers even though we start running for the ball at the same time, they just speed past me. But their defenders are able to outrun my striker (Mbappe for God’s sake) even though he is way ahead of them in the beginning of the sprinting dual.

    am i just not good enough or is there an acceleration button apart from R2 that i don’t know about???

  3. So anybody knows how to reset (or if is even posible to reset) the season records? Like, to start from 0… in D10 (and of course, BEING ON MY SAME ORIGIN ACCOUNT)?

  4. I think FIFA should be flexible for all fans in online season some people play legacy while some tactical I think is ok to allow both..secondly I think FIFA should give us the option of selecting jerseys and weather cos sometimes the sunny weather makes u not see anything at all…especially when the jerseys are a bit similar…

  5. I have never been the greatest player but I was half decent and always found Division 5 or 6 in seasons was about my level but in the past two months I just can’t win a game! Not even in Division 10! It’s really depressing and frustrating me as I can’t put my finger on why! I’m thinking of giving up the game as getting beat or scrapping draws literally every game is not fun at all.

    Anybody else suffered such a drop off a cliff form problem?

    1. I am in Div 1 and I’m doing very well. My overall record is 68 wins and 22 losses. Im in my third season in Div 1. The games are competitive but very enjoyable
      I havent played a cup match yet. Does anyone have any info on the EA Shield games? Whats the format etc?

  6. I have data and when I try to access “play online” button it keeps saying “please connect to internet….”

  7. I am in division 4, trying to play for a promotion. I was beating someone 3-0, and they quit right after I scored my 3rd goal. However, the game gave me credit for a loss and them credit for the win. How is this possible??

  8. Hi,

    Does any one know how to update online seasons quad in fifa 20..

    I used to play with france. But I am missing may players. There isn’t any decent right back.

    I try to add players into team sheet. But that specific players I added doesn’t reflect onto the squad in online season.


    1. The online squad is not the same as your made up squad
      This is done to level up the playing field so the france you pick is hìjust as strong as any other france

  9. anybody wanna duo on season ? i would rly like to try and play duo on this game and score some sweet goals! 🙂

    feel free to add on Origin: Rallan91

    1. Any idea how to add a guest onto seasons? Me and my mate want to play as a 2 on Xbox one! No idea how to link it together

  10. Does anyone know how to come out of cup match. I am in Premier Cup and don’t find any online participants in that. Want to go to EA Cup instead.

  11. Hry guys,
    does anyone know how do I choose to be at home stadium in season DIV? I play away every time and I don’t know how do I change it 🙁 Thanks

  12. Question on this (SEASONS MODE)
    ”Search – Search for an opponent with a similar team star level and division to yours”

    Is ”Team Star Level” referring to the team you select (i.e Barca 5 stars or Cardiff 3 stars), OR is it the star level of you as a FIFA player (wins/losses/draws/tropies)

    1. It depends on the star level of the team you choose. like you mentionened, barca 5 stars, some laliga123 3 stars..

  13. Anyone know why I cannot see current season in season mode as everyone I select to view it doesn’t show and I have to come out of game to start again

  14. It is all acceptable and reasonable up to division 5 and 4. But then you see a lot of skill difference and cheating start slightly from division 4. You have people with (lost connection) glitch: when you lead the game, they leave and the game wouls not count for you. Another thing, I know that I am not really good at fifa, but I can play and beat strong opponents. However, I saw players (especially in division 3) are really invincible and their teams run all the game defensively and offensively with full stamina ?!!!!

    1. If they leave the game, you get 3 points lol about the full defense full attacking stamina, sometimes happen, i think it is fifa trying to compensate some division differences

  15. I had change/customized some players for mu favourite team…change gloves boots jersey type etc.

    I cant seem to upload these custom settings in online seasons and cup matches. Help
