As you can see in the image, to calculate the FIFA 21 match coins awarded you need to know the Skill Rewards, the DNF Multiplier, the Coins Boost, the Competition Reward and the Completion Award.


Skill Rewards


Skill Rewards are the sum of bonuses performance and penalties performance. Player’s good performances are rewarded with FIFA 21 coins, while there will be coin deductions for negative performances.

How is Calculated
It is the sum of the bonuses by scored goals, shots on target, successful tackles, corners, clean sheets, pass accuracy, possession and man of the match and the sum of the penalties by against goals, fouls, cards and offsides according to the following table that shows the number of coins awarded/deducted for each performance:

Scored Goals +40 5 +200
Shots on Target +5 10 +50
Success Tackles +1 20 +20
Corners +5 10 +50
Clean Sheets +75 1 +75
Pass Accuracy % +1 80 +80
Possession % +1 60 +60
Man of the Match +15 1 +15
Goals Conceded -20 4 -80
Fouls -5 4 -20
Cards -10 8 -80
Offsides -1 15 -15


DNF Multiplier


The DNF Multiplier is a coefficient that measures the number of unfinished matches (Did Not Finish), as well as the importance and difficulty of the different game modes and opponents.

How is Calculated
Initial DNF Multiplier depends on the game mode.
It can be one of the following values: 0.25, 0.36, 0.42, 0.50, 0.60, 0.63, 0.88, 0.93, 1.00 and 1.13.
The DNF Multiplier drops 0.25 x A per each incomplete match (A depends on the game mode).
The DNF Multiplier rises 0.02 x A per each complete match (A depends on the game mode).

Maximum Limit
It depends on the game mode:
FUT Rivals – 0.50 to 1.19
Online Single Match – 0.50 to 1.13

The DNF Multiplier is the most complex part of the Match Coins Awarded calculation. For that reason, we published an article to explain it. Please click here to read it.


Completion Award


To earn the maximum possible, the 325 coins, you need to play the match until the end.
If you drop it earlier, you will get only a portion of coins according to the time played.
A DNF (did not finished) match will have a completion award only for the side who didn’t cause the disconnection, calculated based on minutes have been played.

How is Calculated
Completion Award = 325 * Minutes Played / 90

Maximum Limit
325 Coins


Coin Boost


The Coin Boost items allow you to receive some additional FUT Coins for each match you play and the items are active. They can be redeemed on Seasons Objectives and can add up from 500 to 1000 coins to FUT matches you play – depending on the season. Once a coin boost is redeemed, you will get a certain number of extra coins for each match you finish.

How is Calculated
See the following table, please.

Maximum Limit
1000 coins per match.
