FIFA 22 Pro Clubs will introduce new player perks and female Virtual Pros

FIFA 22 Mbappe Header

EA has announced new features for FIFA 22’s Pro Clubs mode including player perks, better drop in, expanded customisation, and the introduction of female Virtual Pros. The way players earn experience will also change with more ways for that to occur, meaning that level 25 should in theory be reachable faster. Drop-In, League, Cup, and Friendly matches will all contribute as well as match actions. The post match screen will show which actions earned how much experience for your players.

When it comes to matches players will not have to wait for squads to be filled with players before jumping into a game. In the Drop In option matches will start when four friends or recent teammates join the team. In this mode your club record won’t be impacted and you can team up with people who may be in other clubs. Finally, the customisation options for clubs will allow players to customise the kit and crest, the ball, home stadium, commentary name, tifo, stadium banners, stadium colour, seat colour, pitch line colour, pitch wear, pitch colour, pitch pattern, net pattern, net shape, net meshing, goal song, and crowd chants.

From the heady days of the Mega Drive up until the modern day gaming has been my main hobby. I'll give almost any game a go.

  1. Shame how dead this site is now. There was a time when every article was full of discussions. The owners of this website, and the writers unfortunately nuked it. Such a shame, it was my favourite go to site for gaming news.

    • Hi Liam! Thanks for popping in!

      While 2020 was the site’s busiest year of all time in terms of traffic, it is true that the comments have gone quiet.

      That’s at least partly down to us switching registrations off a couple of years ago when we were beset by spambots, and… well, not turning them back on!

      However, as of today, we’ve flipped the switch! Hopefully we’ll see some new commentators popping in soon :)

      • Appreciate the reply. I hope so too, I don’t want to see this site go the way of other gaming sites.

        This site started making the mistake of the other big sites and doubling down on woke politics, something which the vats majority of people don’t care about, we just want gaming news without being lectured to.

        I’ll start visiting this site more often, I hope to stick around. Sites like IGN and Kotaku are just poisonous, this was always the best site for news until a year or so ago. I’d love to see things go back to how they were.

        Would love to see some more friendly discussions in here as well, it’s always good to have a chat about games with fellow gamers.
