FIFA 21 : Best way to level up in Pro Clubs


The group-based game mode is a staple of the EA Sports title, and gamers will be racing to climb the division ranks.

Providing the ability to play with up to ten other players on a side, the Pro Clubs possibilities are endless. However, the levelling up process can be confusing, so allow us to walk you through it.

Here's the best way to level up your player and quickly raise your overall rating.

Understanding the FIFA 21 Pro Clubs Ratings System

The two most important aspects to grasp when levelling up in Pro Clubs are XP and Skill Points, as these two factors will be instrumental in raising your Pro Clubs player's ratings.

Attribute ratings like Shot Power or Sprint Speed are added and balanced out to determine the player's overall rating. These attribute ratings can be improved and levelled up through XP and Traits, thus improving your player's overall rating.

Every FIFA 21 Pro Clubs player will start at a base rating of 80 overall. So follow along to understand how to raise your OVR as fast as possible.

Match & Bonus XP

After completing every match, each player will earn a set amount of Match XP based on their match rating. The parameters for match ratings and their corresponding XP earned are as follows:

Depending on your player's position, the XP will be automatically applied to a set of attributes, thus improving their ratings.

The other type of XP you'll earn is Bonus XP. This XP is distributed to specific attribute ratings depending on actions performed during the match.

For example, scoring a goal outside the box will grant the player 50 XP - Long Shots and 20 XP - Shot Power. This is where being an unselfish team player can go a long way, levelling up everyone in your squad.

Scoring a hat trick grants 75 XP - Finishing and 75 XP - Long Shots. While a successfully converted penalty kick awards 150 XP - Penalties.

Spreading the success around and sharing Free Kicks and Penalty Kicks are easy ways to give everyone on your team a boost.

Skill Points & Player Traits

Skill Points are used to unlock specific player traits, which also improve attribute ratings. A total of 110 Skill Points can be acquired to apply to your Pro Clubs player.

At the creation of your player, you'll be awarded 15 Skill Points. The remaining 95 will be awarded based on a per-match-played basis (the table can be found in our Player Traits Guide).

Remember, once all 110 points have been unlocked, they will cap. However, players will be able to reallocate their Skill Points as they see fit.
