This type of movement is something between a Jog and a standard Sprint. If you use the Controlled Sprint feature, your player will try to keep the ball closer to themselves and run faster. This is a good tool for outplaying the opposing defenders.

What stats affect your Controlled Sprint in EA FC?

Of course, any player has certain stats, and they affect how good their Controlled Sprint is. If you want to get a good sprinter on your team, then you should look at the Sprint Speed and Dribble stats. The first one affects the movement speed while the second one improves control over the ball.

How to use Controlled Sprint in EA FC?

Using Controlled Sprint in EA FC is actually very simple. You just need to hold the button dedicated to this feature. For example, on controllers, this would be R1 or RB.

As long as you hold it, your character will perform a Controlled Sprint.

Learning new mechanics is essential if you want to succeed in EA’s new football game, and hopefully, our article will help you become a better player. Use the Controlled Sprint feature and you’ll be able to easily outmaneuver your opponents!
