In this FIFA 19 Hoop Dream trophy and achievement guide for PS4 and Xbox One, we will explain exactly how to unlock one of the most difficult and unknown accomplishments within this year’s game. See the full FIFA 19 Hoop Dream achievement and trophy tutorial below…

Unlocking trophies and achievements in FIFA 19 will increase your trophy count and Gamerscore, respectively for each console. Gamerscore gives a good indication of how experienced a gamer is and can give you bragging rights over your friends. Although the Hoop Dream trophy/achievement isn’t necessarily worth a lot, it has become the most difficult for FIFA users to obtain.

The reason the FIFA 19 Hoop Dream achievement/trophy is difficult to unlock, is the fact that many users don’t actually understand how to get it, as well as it being very difficult to acquire. The reason behind this is due to the fact that it requires specific settings in order to unlock it. As this trophy/achievement is rare amongst gamers, unlocking it will be very important to collectors.

FIFA 19 Hoop Dream Achievement & Trophy (Venice Beach)

FIFA 19 Hoop Dream can only be unlocked once you have completed The Journey game mode. Once you have completed The Journey, you will need to score through a basketball hoop whilst playing on a court in the Venice Beach location in Los Angeles, California. This really isn’t easy, but don’t worry, we will explain the best method on how to do this.

There are a total of 42 different trophies on PS4 and 41 achievements on Xbox One in FIFA 19. Although this isn’t the most rewarding accomplishment in this year’s title, it can provide great satisfaction when completing it. The FIFA 19 Hoop Dream trophy/achievement will earn you a bronze trophy and a total of 15 Gamerscore. The following video details exactly how to earn this.

Once you have completed The Journey game mode in FIFA 19, go to customise on the main menu. You will then need to go to settings and then customise controls to make it easier to earn the FIFA 19 Hoop Dream achievement. Reset your settings to make sure they are assisted and then select shot assistance to manual.

Once you have done this, head back into the journey and you’ll be sent back onto the basketball court on Venice beach. The FIFA 19 Hoop Dream trophy requires you to score through the basketball hoop. This can take some time and is difficult, although there is special a trick in doing this.

Using a chip shot (LB+B on Xbox One or L1+circle on Ps4) will give you the best chance of success. You will be able to work out the amount of power required after a few attempts, but using this technique will decrease the time you will have to spend doing this.

The next FIFA 21 Team of the Week, TOTW 10, is now on its way in Ultimate Team ⁠— here’s everything we know about the new upgraded team so far, including any EA SPORTS leaks, the promo’s release time, and more.

We’ll be honest right up front; this probably won’t be the best Team of the Week we’ve ever seen, but there’ll still be plenty of hidden gems in the squad nonetheless.

Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez, Barcelona’s Antoine Greizmann, and Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman look to be the standout players – with plenty of solid, if unspectacular cards, also in the running for TOTW 10.

Here’s everything we know about the mid-week promo so far, including when the newest Team of the Week lineup will drop in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, possible in-form card leaks, and Dexerto’s weekly TOTW predictions.

Team of the Week 10 start time

On November 25, FIFA publishers EA SPORTS will release the tenth batch of Team of the Week cards for this year. The TOTW 10 promo will begin at 6pm (UK time), as per usual.

That means 6pm BST, 12pm CT, 1pm EST, 3am AEST for those around the world.

These boosted TOTW 10 player upgrades will be announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21. Keep your eyes peeled on our official Twitter account — we always make sure to share the team as soon as it’s live.

Iago Aspas could be one of the best FIFA 21 stars in the next Team of the Week.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 10 leaks

Three weeks ago, EA SPORTS accidentally revealed a number of upgraded players early, totally by accident. In TOTW 8 and 9, they were extra careful to avoid that mistake. TOTW 10, however, appears to have had the same fate befall it.

Twelve players across the starting TOTW lineup, and the sub bench, were revealed early in FIFA 21 through the Ultimate Team Weekend League player pick packs. The next Team of the Week isn’t released until Dec. 2, but the players arrived early.

Here’s the dozen leaked players who have already been found.

Leaked TOTW 10 players

  • Lautaro Martinez
  • Iago Aspas
  • Fabian Peña
  • Ruben Aguilar
  • Florian Neuhaus
  • Wout Weghorst
  • Dani Pacheco
  • Raphinha
  • Toko Ekambi 
  • Benoît Costil
  • Antoine Griezmann
  • Benjamin Mendy

If more leaks drop ahead of the official TOTW 10 reveal, we’ll keep you updated.
