Any club that has ambition to achieve the fame, need to have a group of technicians to support players’ work.

FIFA Ultimate Team Staff – The Cards

In FIFA Ultimate Team, the strengthening of the technical team is made purchasing staff’s cards. All these cards have the function of amplify the effect of some consumables.
Here are the categories of FIFA Ultimate Team Staff Cards:

  • Managers
  • Head Coaches
  • Goalkeeper Coaches

  • Physios


FIFA Ultimate Team Staff – Managers’ Cards

The manager’s role is the more complex within the staff category. These cards have three basic functions:

  • Contribute to the team’s chemistry;
  • Increase the players’ morale;
  • Help to extend the players’ contracts.


Firstly, all teams should have, at least, one manager. He contributes to the team’s chemistry by his presence, by his level and especially by his favorite tactic.

The staff that belongs to a club influences positively the players’ morale and players’ contracts. Each manager’s card shows his favorite tactic, the percentage gain in morale and the percentage gain in contracts that the manager provides.

By applying a team talk card or a contract card, the effect of these is multiplied by the sum of the managers’ coefficients that the club has. For more managers that you have, the sum of these coefficients can never be greater than 50%. This is valid for both cards: motivational speeches and contracts.

The only manager that needs contracts in order to continue active, is the one who sits on the bench.

The head coaches are responsible for the development of players’ technical attributes. Each coach’s card shows, in addition to the attribute to which it is engaged, the increment percentage which this coach provides.

By applying a player’s training card, the effect of this is multiplied by the sum of the coaches’ coefficients that the club has. If you can gather all the coach cards of an attribute, when you apply the corresponding training card, this will suffer a 50% bonus.

To each one of the three levels there is a normal card and a rare card of each of six attributes, such as the following table shows:

  1. hello, can someone explain me, so if i have PAC gold +15 +10, silver +10 +5, bronze +5 and the same with other def head so on, everything will be ok ? or i can only have one atribute ? 🙂

  2. henry sycamore

    I cannot find where I am able to view these cards on Xbox one. Can you tell me where to look please.

  3. So if I use a training card that increases all attributes do i get a bonus if I have head coaches? Or is it just for that certain attribute?

    1. Hi.
      In that case, you get a bonus depending of your head coaches.
      For example: if you only have one head coach that improves heading in 5%, you will only get a bonus of 5% in heading when applying a training card that increases all attributes. You will no get any bonus for the other attributes.

  4. Hello, I don’t get it. If i have a coach that has +10% pas like M. Rowley.
    He only has effect if I use a training card for passing on one of my player? So if I never use training cards, I can better sell him. And is this the same for the fitness coaches?

    Thank you
