Monday 11th August | FIFA 15 Team Management
It has been announced that FIFA 15 gives you a brand new way to manage squads and team sheets across all game modes.
Customise up to six different Team Sheets per club and alter your strategy based on your next opponent, the changing tactics in-game and fitness of your players. Get your favorite team playing the way *you* want them to play.
Team Sheets are available in Career Mode, Match Day (Kick-Off), Online Friendlies, and Tournaments.
Up to five attacking and defending player instructions can be applied to each of the ten outfield players. These instructions let you manage the attacking runs and defensive positions players take on the pitch and gives you deeper customisation options for how your team sets up.
Preset formations for any of your custom squads and pick the best to take on your next opponent.
Set roles like captain, set-piece and penalty takers for each of your squads.
Set a default Team Tactic to each of your Team Sheets so your gameplan is locked before hitting the pitch. Or go deeper and add custom tactics to any of your line-ups.
The new Team Management layout makes it easy to go deep on customizing your team.

So What Will Be Announced About FIFA 15?
We take a few guesses at what me be revealed about FIFA 15 at gamescom:
Where will EA SPORTS take their primary game mode in FIFA 15? What else can be achoeved with this mode? What do you guys think?
This mode has been neglected for a few seasons now, will it see any major improvbements? We really hope so as the potential for an offline competive eSports Clubs mode would be awesome to rival the popularity that COD has achieved.
We look forward to seeing the next evolution of this popular mode. What are you most hoping for in Career Mode 15?
Do you think there will be any other nice FIFA 15 surprises for us? Spectator Mode would be a great addition, anything you are hoping for?
