Ever since it was first introduced on FIFA 2000, Career Mode has been one of the most popular modes in the game. With next year marking 20 years since the mode was first introduced (in a multiple season format with transfers) interest is still high and the number of suggestions for improvements is higher than ever.

With this high demand, a single unified community Career Mode Wishlist can help identify which features are most desired. Several high profile supporters of the mode have backed this wishlist idea and will be sharing this poll on their channels to help it get more votes and truly become the Community's wishlist.


Thank you to everyone who has given suggestions for new features in the Community Career Mode Wishlist thread which has been running for the last few weeks. There were over 500 suggestions made and I have now collated the 10 most popular suggestions into a poll.

Everyone can vote for one option so let everyone know which of these features you'd most like to see included in FIFA.

The 10 options are explained below:

Data Editor
A data editor would allow everyone to add new clubs, leagues, cups or even completely reinvent a nations football pyramid. This would be something similar to creation centre and the Football Manager ‘pre-game editor’. For example you could create the National League (England's 5th tier) and then edit the FA Cup structure to include these new teams.
A way to share these files with others would be essential. This could be via a web app system like creation centre had or via an in game menu like Madden 19 uses for Custom Draft Classes.

Edit Player Mode
This would be similar to Madden 19's Edit Player Mode where you can change everything about a player including appearance, physical stats, attributes, traits and position.

Mid-Season Start Dates
With Mid-Season Start Dates it would be possible to pick up CM and start a save from any date in the season. Maybe you want to start on 12/12/18 using Shaktar Donetsk in their must win Champions League match at home to Lyon. Or you could try and make up Manchester United's sixteen point deficit on their Mancunian neighbours. This would allow you to save your club's season.

Position Training
Fed up of having a pacey LB with a great shot? Wish you could play them at LW? Then this is the feature for you. Lots of players have changed position during their careers and this option would let you do just that via the in game training.

Potential Changes
Turn maximum potentials into minimum potentials so that ANY PLAYER can become a superstar. This would make every save unique.

Scouting Changes
The GTN scouts and youth academy scouts should be merged into one “scout” section. This would allow users to decide if they want to concentrate on scouting players from other clubs or signing prospects up into their academy.

Stadium Creator
Maybe you've taken over a generic club and want to try and recreate their stadium. Maybe you've taken a League 2 side to the Premier League and want a new stadium instead of their small terraced stadium. Either way a stadium creator would benefit you. Using this you can design the stadium you want for your team.

Staff
The ability to hire other staff such as coaches and a medical team could be used to impact on different areas of the game. Sign a good doctor and have players recover from injuries quicker, sign a top attacking coach and have your strikers gain more benefit from training or maybe sign a youth coach and see your 16 year old starlet improve faster than you'd hoped. This option would add another dimension to managing your club and give you more 'off the field' issues to deal with.

Visual Sim
A popular option from Manager Mode which many users would like to see make a return. Using visual sim you can watch the game unfold in front of you which making on the fly tactical changes to counter the other teams tactics. This would allow you to take on a more managerial role without playing any of the games.

Youth Squads
The best ways to improve your youth players is to have them playing matches. With the addition of an U18/U21/U23 team at the club you could have them playing in the UEFA Youth League and Premier League 2 to get much needed match experience.

Remember you can only vote for one option (even though you would probably like to see all ten of these options included) so use your vote wisely.

This poll will run until 31/12/18 at 23:59 GMT.


Please note this wishlist is nothing to do with EA. The outcome of this poll does not guarantee a suggestion will be included in FIFA.

    A lot of great ideas. Sadly none of them is going to be used. Career Mode will be EXACTLY the same in Fifa 25 as it was in Fifa 17, only avoidance of this fact is features removed, even though Career Mode got so few features it will be hard finding stuff to remove. Maybe the training and youth academy.

    Prove of this is that many of the suggestions is former Career Mode features, which has been removed. Sad.

    I didn't see anything about using current coaches or editing/creating coaches and there's no way that wouldn't have made the top 10 most requested. It was listed on almost everyone's post in that thread.

    I left out anything that was licence related as it’d be possible to fill an entire poll with stuff like that.
  • I know this isn’t as big of a deal as the biggest voices on this forum like people who have YouTube channels and such solely on career mode, but for the little guys, how about online co-op manager mode? My roommate of over 4 years (recently moved in with his girlfriend) and I used to love playing manager mode together, but now with the separation we barely get the chance. I’m not going to pretend like I know anything about coding or video game creation, and please correct me if I’m wrong, but I think that’s not asking for much. I feel like that would be a quick and easy addition considering we’re about to be in 2019 and almost every other game out there has online co-op features, including Madden’s connected franchise, so I know it’s not a foreign concept to EA. I know several other people who echo the same sentiments. Honestly I’d be happy with just this.
  • Potential Changes
    More variety in youth player surname. Cant be having 4 French youth players called Aubert.

    Pretty surprised that allowing us to scout upcoming team tactics wasn't an option as I see it as being one of the most popular asks by CM fans. For me we have a new tactical system but no way to really use it pre game, to prepare for our opponents, and I agree this would be a huge improvement.

    Most of these options don't really do much for improving the role you're meant to play as a manager. Personally I'd take most of these - just give me some features that actually matter and aren't just superficial window dressing, like the press conference and players complaining etc.

    None of those proposed features interest me.

    I think more people would want a Historical Statistics feature than a Mid-Season Start Dates feature so you can view league tables, player stats such as goals, etc.. and trophies won from previous seasons in your career.

    I would prefer if EA focused on the important aspects of the mode on the pitch-

    1. Team Individuality with unique playing styles. In FIFA, all teams play the same tika taka, fast ground passing style of football which doesn't reflect real football and makes every game feel samey.

    2. AI Logic that is stats based and based on real football factors such as team/player current form, the
    importance of matches, etc.. instead of AI that uses a win/loss cycle. EA need to revamp the AI then thoroughly test the game playing many seasons so it more closely resembles the realism and immersion of a proper league season i.e. playing big teams and having to be at the top of your game to get a result especially away from home.

    Hello EA, after the update 1.05, the whole game has changed. The difficulties of legend and ultimate have become too easy due to the deterioration of the defense. So the career mode is no longer a challenge. It is also possible with players like Neymar or Messi just run past the opponent. That was not possible before. The game is no longer tactical with this update but just a simple back and forth. You have argued that running around opponents is not so easy anymore. For FUT-Gamer the update is good because they can defend themselves, but for players of the career mode there is no more challenge! There is nothing worse than having no more challenge. So please make the defense stronger again for Legendary and Ultimate! Thank you!

    Bonjour EA, j'ai parlé pendant 45 minutes au téléphone avec un conseiller (Latévi), je lui ai parlé de mes ambitions à propos d’éventuelles mises à jour sur FIFA 19 ou pour les nouveautés de FIFA 20. Je souhaiterai qu'on puisse changer toutes les tenues de notre club en carrière manager à la fin de chaque saison où on pourrait également créer un maillot/flocage spécialisé pour une Ligue Europa ou une Champions Ligue, changer les équipementiers, sponsors, design... Et je lui ai également parlé d'un mode où on pourrait prendre du plaisir avec les équipes de légendes qui nous ont marqués comme FRANCE 98, BRESIL 2002, REAL 2005, MILAN 2005, INTER 2009... Un mode nostalgique en gros qui nous ferai traverser l'histoire du foot !! Je compte vraiment sur vous EA pour rendre ses projets possibles soit pour une mise à jour début 2019 où en nouveauté sur le prochain FIFA. Je vous remercie !

    I love all the support behind #changecareermode and am almost 100% sure that we wont be ignored this time because of we are then ea will lose a big fraction of their consumers, meaning a loss of income and they know this. They HAVE to change or else in a few years, FIFA as a whole will be on the verge of dying (maybe)

    Add Icons in Carrer Mode!
  • I would like to see cumulative stats for the season/career for players. Would be good to know passing accuracy for players throughout the year, shots on target, cross completion %, tackles, ariel duels, take-ons, distance run, etc. I think if EA teamed up with "WhoScored.com" (or something) and gave us more stats, it would be helpful. If I am looking for a "string pulling CDM/CM in the January window and see that a guy is completing 92% of his passes and is averaging 2.5 key passes a game, I might just want to make a move for him. Or if I want a CB who can win headers in the box, then I could scan the league stats and see which CBs are leading the way in that category.

    I see FIFA dying now, I played FIFA since 08 and got 19 but haven't really played it. All I ever wanted was a footie game that had something in common with the real thing and have that now in PES 2019 plus with the option file it is good.

    EA is losing money and shareholders can't be happy so that MIGHT mean they will listen to us for once, I will believe it when I see it but imo it is time EA either improved career mode or got rid of it. We shouldn't have to choose which one thing we want it should be be all those things and more. FIFA was built on Career Mode and about time they showed some respect to the players.

    For me EA have to do something special to tempt me with FIFA 20, time will tell.

    I'd love to see every feature in FIFA 20, I think they would take some care of CM this time but I don't think they will add more than 1 or 2 of those ideas

    EA taking care of CM. That must be the funniest thing i have heard this year. Look at the bugs, being ignored. EA dont care about CM. Or you could say they care in they way Lord Voldemort cares about Harry Potter. They want to kill it.
  • Where’s the “add everything in this poll” option? None of that stuff is groundbreaking, most of it has ancient written over its forehead. I’ll donate my left testicle if they add 1 of those next fifa.

    Just fix the career mode breaking bug, its already been over a month and still nothing been done

    Make ultimate difficulty harder
  • Maybe an idea to introduce a training session were you can work on tactics,positions,...? I will be more realistic i think!
  • Let's talk about training variety...
    Personal I'd like to get better at skill moves but I only get so much time to play so I focus on career mode progress Or the journey.
    I do Play all training sessions because I want to get the most progress out of a player per season as possible.
    So image this... You are able to improve a player's skill 🌟 rating by playing a skill move tutorial training sessions, but a player would normally practice there tricks in there own time as a training session is more of a team effort to improve player ratings.
    Here is where the fun comes in...
    Before every game the teams comes out to warm up infront of the fans so lets change the training sessions before games to an expression of freedom where the team you selected to play goes out onto the field within the stadium with multiple drills going on & you can switch between between players to select who you control to potentially upgrade there skill moves. Eg. Perform all of the 3 🌟 skill moves in front of the crowd 5 times with a player who has a 3 🌟 skill rating & they go up to a 4 🌟. This would be logged like the achievements show up on the screen.
    That's not all I'd like to see because there is also a week foot 🌟 rating & I don't think there are enough goals scored from crossing as there is in real life so here is my suggestion...
    In the weekly training sessions you should be able to select Crossing, Free kicks OR penalties etc. And then choose which foot the player is to use. Over time this would bump up there weak foot 🌟 rating.
    This could also relate to position change because I don't know about everyone else but I have more LW then RW in my squad and for a player to come inside and shoot or outside and cross would create amazing versatility.

    Online career mode. Don't tell me it cant be done!

    Limit is to 6 players in a league. Admin can sim unplayed matches. Admin can set difficulty, injury ratios etc.
  • Staff
    Why can't you just bring the fifa 06 or 08 career-mode back with a grafic change? It was nearly perfect. Today you are just focused on the money and how your ultimate team can be more successful in earning money and manipulate the minds of the players who buy points for 100 euro and dont even get one good player out of it.
  • Wish to career mode.

    1) Training:
    - Train the team, not only some players.
    - if you have youth team train them also

    2) Team line up:
    - Have the same lines in career mode, as they have in the FUT. where the players have green, red and yellow lines like if they work good together.
    - have a youth team

    3) Transfer:
    - If you are buying, it will be nice if you can select new players to fit in the system.
    - if the player don't fit in, it will be a nice feature if there was a dealine for how long time it will take the player to fit in.
    - easyer to sell players, right now no players will change to a smaller club to a smaller paycheck, even if i try to sell the players for 1 Euro so the buying team could use the money on the paychack.
    - Deadline day let the speaker guide you the 10 hours, who is going for loan, perment.
    - More features to the contract, as a buy back or some other nice thinks.
    - buy young players to the youth them.

    4) Press:
    - more interaction with the press, answer some question as we know from the journey.
    - leake some thinks in the press.

    5) career mode:
    - start back in time as a coach for a U18 team and work you way up to year 2020 and there get some offers from some big clubs. as is rigth now you can take the bigges club and buy who you want and then there is nothing fun after the first season.
    - Pick a coach instead of makeing one self.
    - not get all the ask from national teams.
    - as it is right now, when you sign a contract with a team you will get some money but you can't use them. let us use them on a car, house, etc.
    - Danish commentators
    - set the prices on the tickes to A,B,C matches, if the price are to high the atmosphere will be lower becouse of fewer spectators.

    This used to be in, not the colour lines, but Team Chemistry was a thing. Was mainly based around ratings and positioning, if put lower rated player in instead then it would drop also if you put a CB at LM for example. If remember correctly that also used to affect their overall. For example 85 rated striker if put at CB might drop down to 70ovl. Anyways may be with personality traits involved they could bring it back and have that affect team chemistry also things like new signings. Stick a newbie in it's gonna drop, so give it time to build and improve, after so many games with new player Chemistry would improve

    Try bring back all the features from previous Career Modes that have been removed, that would be a start.

    Not hard to port them back is it?

    Also, its not hard to port features from The Journey to Career Mode either! Press conferences, cut-scenes, ability to fully edit your manager / player's appearance including tattoos etc..
