Welcome to FIFA! Here’s where you can learn more about the game’s features.
Build Your Team
Get players and use Training XP Items to improve their attributes and build up your Ultimate Team.
Win Campaigns to fill up your trophy case and dominate the competition by becoming a FIFA Champion in VS Attack mode!
Road to Champion
The best way to improve your Ultimate Team is to complete all of the goals in the Road to Champion Campaign!
You’ll unlock great rewards and the ability to level Mobile Master Cristiano Ronaldo to 100 OVR!
Your Team OVR is determined by the combined skills of all the players in your Starting 11.
Adding higher-rated players will improve your team’s chances of victory!
Tap any player within your lineup to show their attributes and display your replacement players. Drag better players from your reserve into the starting position to improve your team.
Looking for better players? Visit the Store or Market!
If you Drag and Hold the item over the “Drag & Drop” slot, the attributes of both players will be compared.
Green attributes indicate the reserve player is better in this area, while Red attributes indicate the reserve player is worse.
The Highest OVR button will swap your lower-rated players with the highest OVR reserve players, giving you the best chance of success.
Change your team’s formation inside the My Team screen. The active formation determines the positions used by your starting 11.
Each formation has a unique set of playstyles, so try them all to see which one suits your team.
As you Level Up, you’ll unlock more formations.
When entering a match your active formation will be used.
Remember to change your formation before going onto the pitch.
Improve Your Team
Getting New Players
Earn new players by opening packs in the Store, completing Campaigns and Events and wiining in VS Attack mode.
You can also sell and buy players from the Market.
Level Up Players
Increase your player’s stats by leveling them up. You can level up any player, but the materials used are different for each player.
Collect and upgrade Skill Boosts to increase your player’s stats.
Skill Boosts are applied only when players are used on position so manage your team to get the most out of them.
Each player and XP item is worth a certain amount of Training XP.
Filling up the Training XP bar for a player gives the option to level up to the next level.
The items required for leveling up a player differ from player to player. Most players use other players from their line (e.g. ST can leveled up by any other attacking postion) and Training XP items.
Some special players, like Mobile Master Ronaldo, only use unique items for leveling.
Using reserve players for level up will discard them from the club.
Rank Up Players
Once you level up a player to 100 OVR, you can Rank Up to increase your team’s OVR directly.
Ranking up does not increase the player’s stats, only the team OVR.
You can boost your players to increase their OVR and attributes by leveling Skill Boosts.
Each player has a Skill Boost attached that provides increased attributes.
The Skill Boost bonus is applied only when the player is on position.
Skill Boost Leveling
Level up your Skill Boost by collecting duplicates to increase the provided bonuses.
Get more Skill Boosts to increase the attributes provided.
Many players share the same Skill Boost, so leveling it will provide bonuses for all the affected players.
Leveling Up Skill Boosts not only increases your player attributes, but is also a great way to earn XP and increase your User Level!
Rank Up Skill Boosts
Once a Skill Boost reaches max level you can it Rank Up, increasing your team’s OVR directly.
The Rank Up bonus for each Skill Boost is added for each on position player with that Skill Boost, so it’s a very powerful way of improving your Team OVR.
This is VS Attack football!
You play the highlights of your match against your opponent’s team.
You’ll play with your opponent simutaneously, so when one of you scores the other will know about it in real-time.
Use the VS Attack items you receive to claim rewards exclusive to the VS Attack mode.
These can be found in the Rewards map accessible from the VS Attack screen.
Before the match starts you’ll get to see how you match-up against your opponent.
The higher your OVR, the better your likelihood of creating great opportunities for scoring.
During the match your opponent will play their chances while you play yours.
Use predefined messages and emoticons to chat with your opponent.
Send messages to express your congratulations, surprise or frustration during the match!

When taking a free kick, Swipe from the ball towards the goal to shoot. The speed of your swipe will determine the power and the shape will affect the spin. If you want to pass instead, simply tap on the desired teammate or into space.
To take a corner kick, Swipe from the ball towards the penalty box. The speed of your swipe will determine the power and the shape will affect the spin. Alternatively, you can tap on a teammate to have your player try to pass to him or into space.
On Penalty Kicks you can be shooting or saving. When shooting, simply swipe from the ball towards where you want to shot to go, the faster you swipe the stronger the shot will be.
When saving, all you have to do is either Swipe or Tap towards a direction and the goalkeeper will jump there. Make sure you time it correctly to the incoming shot!
Visual Feedback provides you information about your gameplay actions.
From showing you where your shot will hit the goal to presenting you the reason why the opponent’s defender intercepted the ball, Visual Feedback will help you increase your gameplay performance.

League Tournaments last for 24 hours. During that time, League members should each play all of their turns.
You can challenge any opponent, as long as they have a Play icon next to them.
Your League score is determined by how many goals your members score. The League with the most goals wins.

You’ll be able to Chat with your League-mates in real time by tapping the Chat button. You can also Chat with the other League, but be careful not to divulge your strategy.

Create a Championship
On the League Championship screen you can view past Championships or create a new one.

Setting It Up
League Owners and admins set which members play in a Championship. The top three ranked members must be in the League Championship, while the rest of the members are optional.
They can also adjust settings of the Championship such as difficulty, seeding type, and round length.
After a League Championship has been started you’ll be notified if you’re in it.
When you go into the screen the brackets will be seeded and you’ll play your turns against your opponent. The team with the most goals wins.
League Championships are broken up into rounds and each round has a time limit.
If everyone finishes early the next round will start earlier, but still end at the same time as it would have before.
Byes give you an instant win and may be given due to an unevenly filled bracket or if someone forfeits a round.
In League Championships, there are no Draws if the scores are equal: the user who has the higher League Ranking wins.
Even if you lose, you can still place higher than others who’ve lost in your round. Do so by wining more matches, scoring more goals, and doing it quickly.
League Achievements are earned from the combined efforts of each League member.
Rewards earned from League Achievements will be granted to the League members once the achievement has been completed. If you have already earned a reward with one League, you cannot earn it again with another.
