Skill points in FIFA 21 are what you’re going to need to earn to improve your player. Whether you’re playing in the street football-inspired Volta mode, or you’re having a laugh with some friends in Pro Clubs, skill points are the currency you’ll need to spend to improve each of your player’s various attributes like short passing, long passing, crossing, defending, pace, and shot power, to name a few. In this guide, we’ll be talking you through how to get skill points in FIFA 21‘s Pro Clubs and Volta modes.
Getting Skill Points in FIFA 21 Pro Clubs
If you’re playing Pro Clubs, you can earn a maximum of 110 skill points. 15 skill points are given at the very beginning of Pro Clubs to allow you to tweak your player’s stats.
The remaining 95 skill points are earned by completing a set amount of matches. We’ve detailed the how many skill points are awarded per matches played in the table below, for your convenience.
It’s also worth pointing out that you can raise your player’s attributes by earning Virtual Pro XP. This is earned based on your match rating each game. The higher your rating, the more XP points you’ll earn. These are then assigned to each of your Pro’s attributes, based on whether that attributes is considered Primary, Secondary, or Tertiary for the position your player is set to.
Skill Points in Volta
In the street soccer-inspired Volta mode, players earn skill points in the exact same way as Pro Clubs, but the amount of matches you need to play and the skill points earned when you reach these milestones is different.
In Volta, you’ll be given 5 skill points to begin with, and then will earn one skill point each match you play. This only changes on your 10th, 20th, 30th, 40th and 50th games played in the mode.
For these matches, you’ll earn two skill points for 10th and 20th matches, and three skill points for the 30th, 40th and 50th matches played.
