What Are The Different Game Modes in FIFA 20?

by Phirex

Fifa has a range of different game modes in its latest edition, Fifa 20. While some of these modes are ranked, competitive environments, others are fairly laid back and designed to be enjoyed alone. This guide is designed to give you an early insight into the Fifa 20 game modes that are currently available.

Kick Off

This allows you to create quick matches to play against the CPU or your friends. You can choose between all available clubs and national teams and can completely customise almost everything related to the match – such as formation, tactics and match settings. 

Skill Games

Improve your skills by completing a series of challenges that test specific manoeuvres such as dribbling, free-kicks and penalties.

As you improve these abilities you can unlock more Skill Challenges until you become Legendary at each one. You can also compare yourself to friends and other players thanks to online leaderboards. 

Practice Arena

This game mode allows you to train and improve your dribbling, passing and shooting. Alternatively, you can practice free-kicks and penalties, or even improve your goalkeeping skills. 

UEFA Champions League

Choose your team and attempt to win the biggest competition in club football, the Champions League. If you finish third in the group stages then you will be demoted to the Europa League where you can continue your European adventure. 


Choose to play in one of more than 60 tournaments from 29 countries around the world, such as the FA Cup, Copa del Rey, Bundesliga and Eredivisie, or create your own custom tournament. 

Career Mode

This game mode allows you to play an entire football career, either as a manager or a player. Start by creating and customising your manager/player by choosing from different body types, skin tones and hairstyles.

Once your character has been created you can choose your team and work on improving your stats by playing in games and taking part in training sessions.

If you choose to play as a manager you handle everything from squad rotation and tactics to press conferences and player salaries. 

VOLTA Football

A brand new street soccer game mode inspired by the small-sided form of football played on futsal courts, cages and in the streets around the world.

The gameplay includes simplified flicks, tricks and skill moves, while you have the choice to play 3v3 Rush (No GK’s), 4v4, 4v4 Rush, 5v5 and Professional Futsal.

In this mode, you can also build your own player, pick your clothes and create your own personal style with a series of custom tricks.
