Here we got through the seven biggest announcements coming your way in FIFA 20.


Location, location, location

Interactive transfer negotitations return (which we’re happy about), but now there are more loactions to conduct business.

You can now meet in a plush rooftop bar or in a restaurant – which makes a change from the stale office we’ve been conducting business in over the past two FIFAs.

Media savvy

Every decision you make in FIFA 20 Career Mode will have a consequence – especially when it comes to press conferences.

Just like in real life, you’ll be grilled by the press about your team’s performance. Be too nice and you’ll lose respect, but go in all guns blazing and you’ll trash your team’s morale.

Go forth and conquer, Special One.

How you handle the press will directly impact your team’s morale

Inspire your team with the answers you give in new interactive press conferences before and after key moments in your season. 

Managing Morale

From rotating your starting 11 to shortlisting transfer targets and managing wage expectations, every choice you make affects your squads morale, form and even their OVR ratings.

So, yeah, choose wisely.

This year’s Career Mode brings you closer to the players than ever before

Dynamic Player Potential

This year, you’ll be even more responsible for player’s potential OVR with Dynamic Player Potential.

The better they play on the pitch, the higher their Player Potential will grow.
