What FIFA 20 position change cards do?

One of the most important factors in team chemistry is if players are playing in their preferred positions or not. Although they could play in any position, the team’s chemistry and the individual chemistry are strengthened if they are placed in the position printed on their cards or, at least, in a similar position. You can learn more about this subject here.

As it is not always possible to make these positions match, there are position cards that help you to solve this problem. These cards are equivalent to training to adapt players to a new position on the field.

The position cards allow you to change the preferred position of a player to the one that is printed on the card. For each card that you use, you can change a single player’s position only once. Using several cards, you can change the player’s position as many times as you want, including getting back to his original position. Before applying a position card to a player to fix his position on the field, make sure that he already doesn’t have maximum individual chemistry. If he does, you don’t have to apply the position card

However, it is necessary to have in mind that the position’s cards contain information about the old and the new position. If a player’s favourite position doesn’t match with the old position printed on the card, we cannot apply that card to him. It means, for example that you will never transform a right back into a right winger.

Each position card can only be applied to a player and the effect lasts until you apply a new position card on him. Sometimes, you need to apply several position cards to get the position you want. For example: to transform a CAM into a ST, you need to apply a CAM-CF card and then a CF-ST card. In other hand, goalkeepers’ position cannot be changed to anything else.

The position cards can not be boosted by any staff.

How to Apply Position Change Cards

Instructions to apply position change items

To apply position modifier items to a player card, go to your Squad in FUT, select your player and bring up the Player Actions screen (PS4: Square button / Xbox: X button), Apply Consumable, then select a position modifier card from the Positioning tab.



Should I buy FIFA 20 Position Change Cards?

When a player is assigned to play in a strange position to himself, the chemistry is strongly affected. Independently of his connections with team mates, he will never have more than an individual chemistry of 4, which is very bad. However, it will also affect team chemistry.

If you bought or received a player with a different position from the one that he will play, apply him a position card in order to at least adapt him to a similar position (see the table of similar positions).

On the other hand, if your players already have an individual chemistry of 10, you should not waste coins with position cards. In these cases, they can play in the wrong position that it will not affect their performance.

If you want to apply a card or a sequence of position cards to a player you own, check which option is cheaper: buy the position card(s) and apply it on him; or go to the transfer market to sell your player card and buy another card of the same player but already in the desired position.

The CAM-CM, CM-CDM and ST-CF cards are usually the most popular ones.

  1. I have James special card on CM I want him to make it RB can you tell me how too

    If not what do you suggest

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      It is not possible to make him an RB. You will have to find another player for that position.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Hi. That’s because it was a Shapeshifter item. In that special item he was released as a CDM, a position that can be transformed into a CAM.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      You can’t transform your RB into a CB. The bets you can do is to use him with chemistry 6.

        1. You can convert a CAM to a CDM and if you play a CDM at CB it won’t completely ruin your chemistry

  2. If I change the position does that mean that the player loses rating if he isn’t played in his original position. For example, I have Ian Wright, according to futhead, as a striker he has 89 rating and as a cm he has 79. In my main screen I changed him to a cm for chemistry does that mean in game he will lose his rating?

  3. Hi
    If I had a ST. Can I change him from ST>CF CF>RF RF>RW is this possible?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Hi. It is not possible. Basically there is no CF>RF item, so it won’t be possible to transform an ST into an RW using multiple position modifier items.

  4. If I use position modifiers to change my Haland (for example) from ST to CDM (to enable team chemistry) but then in game switch to a custom tactic where Haland is playing as ST, does this affect his player rating?

    I see on some websites that they rate Haland’s 95 card as only 85 at CDM.
    Does this mean he will play as an 85 ST when I push him up front in game, because he is modified as a CDM?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      If you used position modifier items to transform him into a CDM, then he will play with that chemistry no matter what happen during the match.

      1. I get the chemistry side of it.
        But what about his rating? If I move him to ST in game, will he play as a 95 rated player, or an 85 rated player, because is a CDM card?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      As you can see here, if you want to use a player as a CAM, you should apply him modifier position items to transform him into a CDM, CM or CF. Unfortunately, that is not possible with an LF player.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      SUre. Just apply the following items for this order: ST>CF, CF>CAM, CAM>CM

  5. Hi , does the chemistry get affected If you play a certain player as a CAM in 41212 , but in custom tactics (while attacking) , you change they Formation to 433 and your CAM now plays as Winger ?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      The important is what you see on the main squad screen. If the position is marked as red or orange, then chemistry will be affected.

  6. Kiran Sastry

    If I change my kaka to a striker for chemistry and change him back to a cam in game, does that effect his rating?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      No. As soon as a game starts, the individual chemistry is not affected.

      1. i can’t find a RW >> RWB modifier. Only RW>>RM and RB>>RWB
        Are you sure there is one?

        1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

          Sorry. Our fault. We thought you were asking RB > RWB. See the image, please.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      It’s easy. You just need to apply CAM-CF item and then CF-ST. In the second case, you have to apply him a CAM-CM and then CM-CDM item.

  7. Can i change a rm to cam by:
    and then put this RF as a CAM (it wont matter if his position is in orange as long as it is not in red)
    PLZ PLZ anyone reply

      1. Prashanth Francis

        Is it possible to improve chemistry of an LM in CM position by using any of the chemistry style?

        1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

          Hi. Chemistry styles don’t affect how much chemistry you will get. They affect which stats will be boosted.
          As you can see in the table, the chemistry of an LM will be slightly affected when playing as CM

  8. Sorry I didn’t see that my first comment was still active. When I checked back it was not visible. Please just ignore one Rodrigo thanks Ryan

  9. So I’m seeing NDIDI as a striker, as well as DE Byrne and even Wijnaldum. They are TOTW cards, but that’s dosent seem like it should matter. I have the 90 Sterling as a L.W. and I’d like to run him as a striker in a 4-1-2-1-2. I saw him as a striker w this card as well as Martial. Now Martial actually leads the line in real life so I feel like this position change should be available. Kante appears as a striker in transfers too. Like how in the world is this happening. As I type this Wijnaldums 86 TOTW card is a striker for 152,000, Martial 85 TOTW for 281,000, NDIDI 84 47,250. Am I missing something. I have the NDIDI card but don’t want him as a striker. I do however want to move my Martial to Striker.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Martial is available as ST but you need to use his TOTW card for that.

  10. How are people moving cdm to striker, LW to striker and other position changes that don’t seem possible. I’ve seen NDIDI as a striker, DE Byrne as a striker, Wijnaldum and Sterlings LW as a striker.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Hi. CDMs can be easily moved to an ST, applying the right sequence of position modifier items: CDM>CM, CM>CAM, CAM>CF and CF>ST.
      LWs cannot be moved to ST, unless they have special cards with different positions (CM, CAM, CF…)

  11. I have a King CAM, but I bought cam>ca and ca>sp but I can’t find how to use them? (Sorry I’m a player from belgium)

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Go your active squad screen, select him and then choose ‘apply consumable’ > Position Modifiers > apply first card > apply second card.
