FIFA 101

  • FIFA is a 1v1  “Sports Sim”, meaning the game is simulating a real-life sport (professional soccer in this case).
  • As this is a simulation game, there are no “otherworldly” or unrealistic abilities that can be used in the game. 
  • Officially licensed by FIFA, the game allows players to compete as any professional team (or country’s team like USA/Brazil/France/etc.) from around the world. 
  • Competitive matches follow the standard, real-world ruleset established by FIFA. The team with the most goals at the end of the match wins. 
  • Games are split into two “45-minute” halves. Each half is simulated in a faster time (avg. 10-12 minutes per half) to keep matches at a reasonable length. 


  • As a 1v1 competitive game, competitors will control all the players on the pitch, having autonomy over a single player at any given time. 
  • Competitors will need to utilize real-world strategies on offense and defense. Good knowledge of how soccer works will result in higher rates of success in FIFA.
