Hi, I play Fifa21 and fifa22 on Xbox one and S. Is there a way to add further national teams? I‘m missing some like Croatia. Thanks!
I don’t think it will work on FIFA 23
Is there a world cup for men in fifa 21 on switch?
No but there is on fifa 23
I’m trying to recreate the knockout stage of the Euros. I can select the teams but can’t seem to choose who plays who in the bracket of 16. Is there a way to do this?
i also wants to do the same but cant do it
Do you know how to change the ball in custom tournament mode. Every time when I want to change ball I have to do this in main setting but also effects to other modes, like exhibition and career.
Trying to play fifa 21 with my husband. We set up a tournament but can not get it to allow two controllers. Driving us crazy. Anyone else have this issue?
I play offline custom tournament with friends on couch. We mostly have 3 players but the minimum to create a tournament requires 4 players, so we have to choose on random team as an AI. Is there any way to forfeit the AI when it’s times comes? We can only find quick sim option and you end up losing to half star Team which is very annoying.
There seems to be a bug that’s not been fixed since fifa 19. Tournament mode crashes and displays an error code after a certain number of matches. I only play offline and setting up custom tournaments is what I enjoy most yet I feel I’ve wasted my money as it’s been 5 months since release with numerous updates but no fix. Reading other forums this seems to be widespread?
Hei tryout fifa 21 both apk and data by only for gamers… Both tournament and manager mode have no bugs or issued at..
Why when playing a custom tournament offline does fifa 21 crash every time after 15 or so matches? It’s so frustrating, it’s impossible to finish a tournament how is this not fixed?
just save after the first 5 to ten matches then play on it again
I’m wondering why I can’t chose ball in tournament mode, there is no option to do that in tournament, all you have to do is to change ball in game settings menu, which also effects in other modes, like career mode.
Just got a PS4 for the first time and playing FIFA
Really silly question here, but having tried to playing you to them and of the Premier League and saved it, how on earth do I reload the previous saved tournament?
If I go to tournaments it just says new tournament and over right the old one
I am clearly being daft, but how do you reload the previously saved tournament?
Why can I not have live updates on all teams and national teams in custom tournament when playing the offline mode Tournaments? Its so boring and sad that EA havent fixed that s*** yet. EA should let the player be more creative in such tournaments, for example having an odd number of groups & teams in Group & Knockout format and let the player select which team plays who in Knockout Stage format. If they fixed these stuff it will be waaaay funnier to play with friends and wanting that trophy for yourself only. Should be easy for a big company like EA… Ohhh, they only care about? Now I remember
Hi how can i findout which team is cup winner after losinf in tournament mode? Ofcourse in offline mode
Can I play a tournament with my friends and brothers in the house
Just finished playing the premier league in the tournament mode, and that’s it got to go into the tournament mode now and play the FA Cup, Carabou Cup, Champions League and Europa League all separate from each other, not as a season really is. It is utter crap wish I never bought the garbage, a big waste of money.
just play career mode as a manager then???
Hi guys I would like to ask something here .. why is that I’m using liverpool in the premier league tournament mode but my first fixture is against another team not Leeds United .. it should be like in the real life just like the previous FIFA before .. any info ?
I’m new to Fifa 21, but in tournament mode you select say the premier league, So thats all you play until the end of the matches. It’s not like a season then when you play the league and cups all in a season. So if I want to play the FA cup I would have to play it separate from the league but going back into tournament mode to select that. In the other fifa games you could play the season as they do in real life, like the league, Fa Cup, Carabou cup, Champions League or the Europa League.
If this is the case then very disappointed with this game.
exactly. Its just the tournament. But to play like we all dream we need to play career mode. That include unlimited seasons, different divisions, international cups, everything indeed. THE ONLY negative thing of career mode, its you MUST deal with finances, transferences and accomplish with team targets, otherwise they just fire you and youd never br able to come back to that club, practically.
