How To Add Concept Players In FIFA 21

You can insert a 'Concept Player' into your squad to see how they will affect your team. It's incredibly useful for SBCs.

To get a Concept Player you need to do the following:

  • Pick a position in your squad you want to add a player to
  • Press 'Add Player' by pressing X or Square
  • Press 'Search' by pressing Y or Triangle
  • Go to Advanced Filter and turn 'Concept Players' on
  • Search as you normally would for any player you wish to fill the spot.

Once you have done this, your squad will turn into a Concept Squad.

However, these teams can not be played within FUT modes and purely for crafting purposes, even if your owned players are in the team.
