FIFA 23 Kick Off mode allows you to create quick matches to play against CPU (up to 4 vs CPU) or your friends. You can play with all available teams and clubs using the Kick Off mode. A Women’s team cannot be played against a Men’s team.
You can create a single friendly/exhibition match in FIFA 23 Kick Off mode to play against CPU AI or pals on your PC/Console. Each side can choose any team/club from FIFA 23. In a Kick Off style match, you can completely customise practically everything about your game (such as your formation, tactics, your match setting and etc). Playing the Kick Off mode in FIFA 23 does not necessitate an internet connection; however, using the Live Form function does necessitate an internet connection to EA servers.
How to Play Kick Off Mode in FIFA 23?
The Kick Off match mode is accessible under HOME > PLAY > QUICKPLAY MODES tab in FIFA 23 home screen.
Here is the list of Kick-off modes in EA Sports FIFA 23:
Classic Match – A match type with the regular and traditional rules of football.
House Rules – If you have ever wanted to play a match in FIFA with different rules (or even no rules at all) the House Rules match type is just for you. You can set up a match with a selection of custom rules, including No Rules, Survival, Long Range, First To…, and Headers & Volleys.
Volta Football – In this match type, you can play with authentic teams and players in VOLTA FOOTBALL match types include the House Rules, 3v3 Rush (No GKs), 4×4 Rush, 5v5 and Futsal. VOLTA FOOTBALL offers different sizes of arenas and environments with and without walls.
UEFA Champions League – The most prestigious club competition in the world is just as integrated into Kick-Off as it is to the rest of FIFA 23. From group stage matches to the Final, you can set up a custom Champions League match with specific visuals, rules, and more that provide a realistic, immersive tournament experience.
CONMEBOL Libertadores – Play a match in CONMEBOL Libertadores. Choose to play in a one off group stage match, the home and maya semi-finals in the CONMEBOL Libertadores final.
Cup Finals – Play your match as one of a handful of real-life cup finals, including the Champions League Final, Europa League Final, FA Cup Final, and others. Official kits, badges, match balls, and authentic broadcast overlays (for a select few tournaments) provide an authentic cup final experience.
Home & Away – This is a two-legged match type in which you play one home and one away match to determine the overall winner. The winner is determined by the aggregate score, which is the team that has scored the most combined goals from those two matches. If the teams are level after two matches, the team with the most away goals will be determined the winner. If the teams are still level, the match will go to extra time, then to a penalty shootout.
Best Of Series – Play classic matches in a three- or five-match series to determine an overall winner.
Live Form in FIFA Kick Off mode allows you to update your team’s lineup and formations with the latest stats of your club in real life using your internet connection. It also automatically creates a match session based on favourite club’s upcoming fixture, a feature which was previously known as Match Day. You can turn the Live Form off and on.
Using this feature you can choose the starting score and what difficulty you want the AI teammates to be. Adjusting this difficulty will affect how your own AI teammates play with & without the ball. Advantage Settings option is available at the team selection screen.
To use the rewind feature, simultaneously press the L2 + R2 + Options / LT + R2 + Menu buttons. In Kick-off mode, this will allow you to rewind and repeat a scene from a recent timeline.
