What else do you need to know about FUT Friendlies
ACCESS
To access FUT Friendlies, you just need to go to the ‘Play’ tab and select ‘FUT Friendlies’.HOW MATCHES WORK IN FUT FRIENDLIES
When you play matches in FUT Friendlies, they’re a little different than other matches you’d play in FIFA Ultimate Team. That means that when you play FUT Friendlies:
– Your matches don’t consume contracts on your Players;
– The matches you play don’t count towards your Club record;
– Injuries and red cards don’t carry over;
– Loan Items won’t be consumed. For example, you can use a Loan Item with 1 match remaining in a FUT Friendlies match, and it would not use their final remaining match;
– You’ll still get basic match Coin rewards for all FUT Friendlies matches that you play.

STATS
Maintain ultimate bragging rights with an in-depth stats tracking system that records a range of statistics from the head-to-head matches you play. Use the stats to analyze and refine your game plan, tweak your pre-game tactics, and prepare for every match. With a host of detailed, immersive information, FIFA 21 allows you to approach every match just like you would an actual game of football, utilizing tactics and strategies gleaned from your stats. Tracked Stats include wins, losses, draws, win %, goals scored, goals allowed, goal differential, goal types (inside box, outside the box, penalties, free kicks), goal heatmap on net, shot on target %, total shots on target, total shots, average possession %, average possession % in areas and pass % completion. In addition to keeping track of the scores, new opposition scouting reports help you identify where you might find gaps in your friend’s style of play.
