Player Career Mod: Access Team Management And Edit Kit Numbers (+ Inbox Shortcut fix)


Club Supporter

I updated my FIFA 20 mod to FIFA21:

Player Career Access Team Management And Edit Kit Numbers

Adds tiles in the main hub which lets you access the team management and kit numbers in your player career + fixes the missing inbox shortcut with Y-Button

This mod is adding a tile in the main hub to make team management as well as Edit Kit Numbers accessible in a player career.
Third and fourth tile after standings.

Modification of the team works, but be aware: the manager AI can adapt the starting XI again!

Update: You can change formation and tactics and it seems to always stick. AI apparently only changes the players to fit the formation and nothing else.

Main reason for me to make this mod:
  • Team Management:
    A player career where a striker was placed as a right winger for no apparent reason. He was the best central striker on team with highest OVR.
    Changing tactics or formations from time to time.

  • Edit Kit Numbers:
    Multiple times it happened that my player joined a team and some other player had the same kit number - usually you got another kit number and had to change it in your pro settings later
    • the check for already used kit numbers which still worked in Fifa 19 has apparently been removed in Fifa 20 onward
    • by using the Edit Kit Numbers tile you can fix that yourself and your player and another player don't use the same kit number on the pitch anymore.
Test with the mod activated was successful:
  • Switching the player was successful, and the player now stays in the central striker position.
  • Changing kit numbers works as in manager career with automatic usage of free kit numbers.
Known "flaws" (which I can live with):
  • It seems to be not possible to put yourself on the bench or out of the starting XI if the manager already decided that he wants you to play. As soon as you put yourself out of the starting XI and save the AI places you back in.
  • I couldn't find the screen for "pre-kickoff", where you can also access team management when playing as manager. So pre-kickoff you can not access team management with this mod (yet). Only between games in the main hub.


- the mod also fixes the missing shortcut to the inbox via the Y-Button on the controller. Highly annoying if you are used to it from the manager career.

I honestly don't know. Some stuff is just overwritten by the AI manager again. I also noticed on certain teams I had to put my player on different position to finally get the one I actually wanted to really stick.
