CREATE A CLUB! The new Career Mode option allows you to create a club from scratch, choosing its name, nickname and rivals, before picking the league you want to join with the option of relegating a rival to ‘Rest of the World’! You can also design your kit crest and ground, including the sea colour and pattern of the pitch! SQUAD BUILDER! Now it’s time to make your squad! Once you’ve chosen your club’s OVR, squad age, transfer budget and board expectations, the game will input your squad of fake players.
