Online Settings

The Online Settings allow you to check your EA Origin account details which are the details you need to access the web app for things like Ultimate Team.


Creation Centre

The Creation Centre is the place for creating your own teams (e.g. to resemble the team you might be in, in real life), players and tournaments (e.g. J-League).
Go online and visit http://www.easports.com/fifa to craft your own players and create the team of your dreams. Choose your player's appearance, accessories, and attributes, and create a team with a distinctive crest and kits. You can also manage your team's formations and tactics right from the Internet. Share your creations with your friends, and download your favourite content onto your Xbox 360 so you can use it in tournaments, Kick-Off matches, and online play. Created players are also accessible in the Practice Arena and Career mode.
Use your downloaded teams in: Assign downloaded players to any club in Customise>Edit Teams>Club Transfers.

Use your downloaded tournaments in:


Edit Teams

For Edit Teams you can swap players around, or if you wanted to make your Career super realistic you could change clubs' stadia to their real-life names and swap the generic stadia to get the most realistic stadium for each club (although the teams that play in their real life stadium can't be moved):

Your Profile allows you to choose the lead profile, and to choose your favourite team for each profile. You can also see how many games you've played, your win % and your goals scored, although this doesn't include all modes (it doesn't include Ultimate Team).
Replay Theatre
Both online and offline saved replays and highlights are stored here. Press LB to change the storage device of videos, and press Y to upload favourites to www.easportsfootball.com.

Video Upload
Share your moments of glory-or shame-with the rest of the world by uploading your videos to EA SPORTS Football World.

To capture footage of your skills, pause the game and select INSTANT REPLAY. To set a keyframe, press D-Pad up, and press D-Pad left/D-Pad right to move it to your desired position (to delete a keyframe, press D-Pad down). Once you're happy, press Y to upload your video and share it with the Football World community.

Ensure you capture all the action with keyframes. These are individual sections within your video that you can treat differently to the rest of your footage. For instance, you can use a different camera, viewing angle, and speed so that, when you get to a key moment, you can zoom in on the action and capture your moment of glory in slow motion.


Replay Theatre

The Replay Theatre is where you can view all the videos that you have saved of in-match action. To save a video pause a game and do an instant replay, or at the end of a game go to match highlights, pick out the highlight you want to save and, after getting all the cameras and slow motion parts right (using the keyframes feature), save it.

You can view your video by pressing A, delete by pressing X, upload to http://www.ea.com/soccer (assuming you have XBox Live Gold) by pressing Y or change the storage device by pressing LB.

Custom Music & Chants
Personalize your FIFA 14 sounds by importing your own audio or customizing the EA SPORTS Trax.

Select a game event and then choose the corresponding playlist.

Hi David

I think you might be referring to the default team that is picked for online matches etc. In which case you need to go to your profile and change your favourite team to the one you want to use. However this is just one team, not multiple teams, unless you use multiple profiles.

Hi Alan, Are you talking about Ultimate Team mode? If so there is a EAS FC Catalogue item that you can purchase to change your team name back to what it was.

Just wondering is there any way to adjust the match high lights as when I've played ultimate and I've managed to score a few it generally only keeps the odd one goal and rubbish high lights like saves or misses !! I want to see the goals only really and it is so frustrating, can you help please

Is there a way for me to save team line-ups for FIRST TEAM, SECOND TEAM etc?
For example, I'm using FC Barcelona in Manager Career, can I save a team squad and formation in one slot then create another squad and save in another slot? So I don't have to make too many changes before playing a match.

wrote on: 2015-11-26 18:48:59
Hi Solomon, N. Yes, this is something you can do in FIFA, although it may be FIFA 15 that was the first in which you could do it. You need to save your different team line-ups, formations etc. in different team sheet slots in the team management section of career mode. If this isn't in FIFA 14 then rest assured it is in future FIFAs.
