New Features in FIFA 21
EA released some Pitch Notes, detailing new changes made to FIFA 21’s Pro Clubs.
Check out the changes below.
AI Player Customisation
A feature that all Pro Club fans have been asking for – you will finally be able to customise your AI players in your club!
There will be a new option under the ‘manage’ section in the Pro Club menu, which will allow you to change the visual appearance, name and kit of all your AI players.
Each club will have AI players to customise in each position that’s in the game.
All club members can access the customisation tab and view the AI players, but only club managers will be able to edit an AI Player.
Club managers will be able to customise the following:
- Name (First/Last/Known As/Commentary/Kit Name)
- Kit Number
- Birth (Date/Nationality/Region)
- Preferred foot
- Skin Tone
- Facial Hair
- Kit Fit
- Accessories (Gloves, Boots, Wristbands, Sock Tape)
- Animations (Running Style, Celebrations)
You will now be able to customise up to five presets for your team’s tactics.
This option will be found in a new tile under the ‘Manage’ section in the Pro Clubs menu.

Each preset tactic can be made up of all five game plans, meaning you can customise your Ultra Defensive, Defensive, Balanced, Attacking, Ultra Attacking game plans five times over!
Club Managers will also be able to provide instructions to their AI Players to ensure they match the play style.

You’ll be able to select one of your five presets in the Pro Clubs Match Lobby, allowing you to select different tactics depending on the match.
However, if you’re looking to jump into a quick Pro Clubs match, and only want to edit the formation, you’ll still have the ability to customise your Club’s formation and not the tactics.
More to come
EA as also stated that they will be ‘sharing more details around AI teammates attributes, as well as your Virtual Pro’s experience growth’ in the near future.
We’ll update this page with any new info as soon as it drops!
