FIFA 22 Online Seasons

FIFA 22 Seasons

Seasons mode in FIFA 22 allows you to compete against other players online in a divisional mode, advance to higher divisions, and win your division’s title. Cup Matches, a multiplayer play-off tournament mode, is also included in this online mode.

What is FIFA 22 Season Mode

FIFA 22 Season mode is an online divisional game mode in FIFA 22 which allows you to play with your favourite club against other online users within your division and earn points to go promote to higher division and win the title.

In FIFA 22, the Online Seasons game mode provides rated online matches. As you play through 10 games per season, try to earn enough points to avoid relegation and gain promotion to the next division — or even win the division title. Higher divisions bring stronger competition and promotion requirements, so get ready for more tough matches.

How to Play FIFA 22 Seasons

Online Seasons game mode is accessible in FIFA 22 > PLAY > SEASONS screen. You’ll see the following options once you’ve entered this online game mode:

Play Match

This option allows you to play online matches. The following are the options available under this option:

  • Search – Search for an opponent with a similar team star level and division to yours
  • Change Team & Kit – Change your team & your kit
  • Match Making Settings – If you need to adjust the matchmaking settings from the defaults, you can do so here. The following are the options that you can change:

    • Controls – Specify controls. “Any” matches your custom settings vs any opponent. “Manual” will lock your controls and find an opponent using the same as your.
    • Club Quality Matching – Turning this setting to “Restrictive” will try to find a club that exactly matches your club’s quality while.
    • Club Type – When set to “Any” you will have no preferences to playing vs Club or International teams. “Match Mine” will only match up with someone that matches your choice of a Club or International team.
    • Guests – “Any” sets no preference playing against a solo player, or someone with a guest. With “Match Mine” set, if you have a guest, you will only play an opponent with a guest, if you are solo, you will only play someone solo.

Leaderboards / World Table

Seasons mode is divided into ten divisions where you start from the bottom, the DIV 10. A win earns you 3 match points, while a draw has 1 PTS and no PTS is given for a loss. For winning the title, promotion, and holding, each division has its own set of point requirements.

Here is the list of divisions (DIV 1 to 10) including their point requirements.

  1. I won the divison 1 in seasons only twice and when i went to the trophy cabinet it shows I won it three times. How is that?

  2. I’ve been playing against people not in my division. I’m in Div 6 and just played a Div 1 and a Div 9 in the last few days. I actually think I’m playing almost exclusively outside of my division. What’s up with that?

    1. I was in div 6 and was matched against only div 1 players until I was relegated to div 7, then nothing changed. I am fed up and will quit playing at all!

      1. I just started playing a couple of weeks ago, currently in div 9, huge difference in the quality of players I’m up against.

      1. After the game, click on your division progress.. From the list of fixtures just press on the game you played with the specific opponent and you’ll see the division he/she is in

  3. Where is the leaderboard for manual players in fifa 22 seasons? When does it come back? This is utterly unbelievable, that EA took it away!!!

  4. FIFA 22 matchmaking settings don’t work!!
    Always play with WBA 3.5 star no problems on PS3,PS4, but on my new PS5
    End up playing 5star teams which I don’t want as really boring and a waste of time tbh, not the only person experiencing this !! Needs sorting or need a refund as game not fit for use / purpose.
    Played FIFA since 97 had them all ,please can we sort it out ?? Cheers

  5. There a terrible bug
    When two players play against two other players….
    Most of the time it change to a one player against two other players

  6. When does the update come, in which the player got a higher rating which depends on their Performances in the latest games ?

  7. This is the second Fifa where if I pick a 4 star team, I end up playing a 5 star team. Fifa dont seem to have fixed this glitch. You then have to pick a 4.5,5 star team all the time. Makes it boring.
