There are a variety of training exercises and drills for you to put your players through their paces and improve their overall development. The idea behind this is that it’ll improve not only your young real players that are showing great potential, but also the ones that you’ll perhaps promote from your youth academy.

The great thing about these pre-season matches is that if you win the entire tournament you get a cash reward that goes towards your transfer kitty for the upcoming season.
New Weather & Time Of Day

The engine this year will also produce some breathtaking statistics like most clean sheets so far this season, most goals scored and other facts that’s interesting to look out for.
The newest celebrations are quite remarkable as well, given the fact that you can now run towards your substitutes bench and share your glory of a winning goal with them and also the feature to run towards the cameraman and pull a funny expression in front of the million watching around the world. A great little touch from EA Sports.
