Career Mode has been a staple of FIFA for many years, but could we see any major changes on FIFA 22?

After some much-needed improvements last year, EA could continue to build on some promising features.

Take a look at everything we know about FIFA 22 Career Mode.

Release Date

The release of FIFA 21 was delayed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but we don’t expect the same to happen with FIFA 22.

We are expecting FIFA 22 to be released in mid-to-late September.

Our first taste of the new game could be the FIFA 22 Demo.

Career Mode

FIFA Career Mode has been neglected in the past as Ultimate Team has taken over, however EA did make some improvements last season.

The new player development and academy systems are much better, although not the finished product.

It still feels as though the game mode is a bit shallow, with no story lines or back story just yet.

We know it is impossible to replicate the detail of Football Manager, but there is certainly a more immersive option that EA could explore.


Take a look at three things we want changed or improved on FIFA 22 Career Mode.


One thing we have been wanting for years is the ability to add more levels of customisation.

From kits to new sponsorship deals, more involvement in the running of the club would be a welcome addition to the game.

CONCEPT - We saw this last year so could it happen this time around

Being able to update the kits with competition badges and numbers is a must as it just looks silly with the Football League badge in the Champions League final…

We can create kits on Pro Clubs, so why not in other game modes?


Another key area we want to see improved is the storylines developed through press conferences and player communication.

These are still painfully repetitive, vague and quite often inaccurate.

Your answers seem to have little bearing on the game either, so it does feel like an add-on that has been forgotten about.

Having your personality shine through on Career Mode would give a more immersive feel to the game and create new problems to solve too.

Jump In

It would be great to be able to ‘jump in’ to Career Mode at the current point of the season.

Say your club has got off to a poor start to the season in real life, can you guide them to safety on FIFA 21?

Scenario-type set ups could be an exciting new way to start career mode.

This could also lead to a more career-led mode, where you must earn the right to manage the big clubs by earning your stripes elsewhere.
