FIFA 22 Pro Clubs is just one of the game’s many modes where players can capitalize on the new custom tactics options. Here, we’re going to run through the best formations and systems to play, as well as player builds to help you score more goals. 

EA SPORTS has revamped Pro Clubs this year within FIFA 22, adding a friends option to \. The latter will be very useful for when it comes to picking your player build for each position on the field.

Team customization was also given a facelift, with players able to edit their stadium, kits, crest, pitch lines, and much more.

Customizing your custom tactics to fit the game’s meta and the play style of your friends is much more important, though, in Pro Clubs. Matching those tactics with the perfect formation will see your record improve in no time, and that’s what this guide should help you do.

New Defending Tactics

There are four main differences to FIFA 22 defensive tactics, which can be used in Pro Clubs:

  • Sliders
  • Free Roam player instruction
  • Step Up player instruction
  • Overlap player instruction

4-3-2-1

Everybody wants to play upfront in Pro Clubs and score the goals. The 4-3-2-1 allows for one central striker, with two supporting forwards, meaning you can stretch the opposing team and run defenders ragged – if you play your cards right.

The 5-2-1-2 is a good choice for players who are defensive-minded.

Packing your defense can be a real benefit in Pro Clubs, and that’s where the 5-2-1-2 comes in.

Having greater numbers at the back might mean fewer attackers, but it also means you’re primed and ready to counter-attack the opposition by absorbing pressure during the game.

  • Width: 5 bars
  • Depth: 5 bars

Attacking

  • Offensive Style: Balanced
  • Width: 5 bars
