Building a new player in FIFA 19 Pro Clubs and not sure how to build your pro for the right position? Here's some FIFA 19 Pro Clubs tips around building the best player possible, such as the FIFA 19 Pro Clubs Striker build and FIFA 19 Pro Clubs goalkeeper tips.

Pro Clubs hasn’t received many changes with FIFA 19, so if you’re familiar with the mode from previous years, you should be good to jump straight in. If you’re building your pro and you don’t know what attributes to prioritise, how tall to make him or anything else in the player creation process, here’s some top FIFA 19 Pro Clubs tips. We've covered things like the best striker build for FIFA 19 Pro Clubs, how to build your goalkeeper and more.

Depending on which position you’ve picked, you’re going to need different skills. This guide will cover the six main positions: Goalkeeper, Centre Back, Full Back, Centre Mid, Wide Mid and Striker. Each position means you’ll be doing a much different job on the pitch so take heed of our advice and you’ll have the best pro possible for that position.


When you make a goalkeeper, you need him to be as tall as possible.

The goalkeeper is obviously vastly different to any of the outfield positions. It’s also one of the more difficult positions to play and since there’s only one on each team, there’s a lot of pressure to not concede easy shots.

When building your pro goalkeeper, you really want to make him as tall as possible - 6’6”. Keep his weight to between 160lbs and 180lbs too. Any higher and you’re only feeding the strength stat which isn’t too important for a keeper.

When it comes to the skill trees, of course you mainly want to focus on the Goalkeeping section. We’d recommend filling up the left-most skill tree first, then moving over to Kicking and Positioning.

Centre Back

If your centre backn can't tackle, he's not doing his job properly.

If you’re playing as a Centre Back, you’re the heart of the defence. You’re the last obstacle between a striker and the goalkeeper; if you can do your job well, you make the goalkeeper’s life a lot easier.

When building your pro Centre Back, you need to consider a few things. Firstly, you need to be able to win headers from corners and crosses to clear it back out to the midfield. So make sure your Centre Back is at least 6ft tall. You also need strength so you can muscle attackers off the ball. Finally, you can’t be too slow or you’ll be left for dust so aim to have your pace at least around the 65-70 mark.

Regarding the skill trees, definitely put four points to get all of the Standing Tackles skills. One or two in Sliding Tackles couldn’t hurt and a few have to go in Strength. A couple in pace could also be useful if you’re not particularly fast, along with Short Passing so you can quickly get the ball to the full backs or midfielders.

Key Attributes: Standing Tackle, Marking, Interceptions, Strength

Full Back

Full backs need pace, but also strength and stamina.

Playing at full back (or wing back) means you’re defending the sides of the pitch, but you also need to contribute to attacking play more often than centre backs. You’ll often find the need to dart up the side of the pitch and support the wide midfielders by taking up their role and putting crosses into the box.

Of course, this means Pace is a vital stat for full backs. Ideally you want at least 70-75 Pace alongside a decent Strength rating. Height isn’t as important because you won’t be challenging many headers, but aim to have decent Crossing and Dribbling stats too. Tackling, as expected is another big one, as is Passing.

In the skill trees, put a couple into Standing and Sliding Tackles. Short Passing is useful, along with Acceleration/Sprint Speed. Put a few into Strength and Agility too. If there’s any left over, Dribbling and Crossing are two more that can be useful. Don’t worry about Shooting or Long Passing too much.

Key Attributes: Standing Tackle, Pace, Agility, Strength

Centre Midfield

If you're playing CAM, you need to be the playmaker with accurate passing.

Playing in the middle of the field means you’re able to dictate the speed of play. Whether you’re a CDM or a CAM, a lot of the same attributes are still important. You need to be able to play the ball with immense precision, sending your wide midfielders down the wing or your strikers through on goal. You also need to be able to defend when necessary, or if the opportunity arises, surge through on goal.

Passing is arguably the most important stat for a central midfielder. Both Short and Long Passing are crucial, as is Ball Control. You also need a lot of Stamina so you can play box-to-box, along with good Reactions. If you’re a CDM, we’d recommend making your pro taller so he can win the ball in the air. On the other hand, if you’re a CAM, height isn’t as important - focus on Dribbling, Long Shots and Pace.

When you get to the skill trees, CDMs will want to improve their Standing Tackles and Interceptions, along with their Strength. CAMs on the other hand should look toward Dribbling, Pace and Long Shots. No matter which role you have, make sure you put a lot into both Short and Long Passing, and don’t forget about your Stamina.

Key Attributes: Short Passing, Long Passing, Stamina, Ball Control

Wide Midfield

As a winger you don't need strength - focus on the pace and crossing abilities.

Playing in the wide midfield positions means you need to primarily focus on Pace. You’ll be up and down the wings all game, beating full backs and midfielders that try to stop you. Your main goal is to get balls into the box or to cut inside and have an effort on goal yourself. Don’t make yourself tall or particularly strong as it won’t be needed.

This means that alongside being rapid, you need a high Dribbling stat. If you’re going to focus on whipping balls into the box to your strikers, ensure you have good Crossing but if you’re going to cut inside more, focus on your Finishing, Shooting or Short Passing to lay it off to someone else.

In the skill trees, there’s a number of options to consider. Acceleration and Sprint Speed are a must, as is Dribbling and Ball Control. Skill Moves is an expensive one but it’s worth considering as a winger. Then you need to decide between Crossing or Shooting - whichever you go for, invest a number of points into it because it’s what your gameplay will be centred around. Stamina is also important if you have any points left over due to all the running you’ll be doing.

Key Attributes: Pace, Dribbling, Crossing, Shooting


Our Striker's skill tree invests heavily in finishing.

Up front is where everybody wants to play. If you’re lucky enough to be a striker, you obviously need to be capable of banging in the goals. There’s a few ways of building your pro so he’s capable of scoring - it depends on whether you want to dribble past defenders and slot the ball home from up close or act as a target man, winning headers and using your strength to create an opening.

If you’re opting for the former, make your pro as small as possible and as light as you can. Going down the height and strength route? Aim for around 6’2”and about 200 lbs. He’ll be able to win the ball in the air and hold the ball up for wingers to cut inside.

Of course, sink most of your skill points into Shooting. Don’t worry about Defending obviously, and Passing isn’t too important either. The few you don’t invest in Shooting should go toward Pace, Strength or Dribbling. Pick a gameplay style to focus on and decide from there.

Key Attributes: Finishing, Long Shots, Pace, Dribbling
