Coaching & Training are essential to keep up with the best (Source: FIFA)
Rich and famous by playing FIFA? – As an eSports player this is possible!

In the first part of our series “How to go Pro” you could learn what a FIFA pro is and which basic requirements you have to fulfill to become one. If you have done these steps, you are ready to start your personal FIFA Bootcamp with the right training plan.

Training plan

Before you directly start to create an Excel spreadsheet, there is one thing that stands above all. Namely the definition of a goal. You have to think about what you want to achieve with gaming. It doesn’t matter if you want to become a FIFA World Champion or just finish the FUT Weekend League with bronze two, you need a goal to work towards.

When you’re done with that, take a look in the mirror. At least figuratively, because you need to know who you currently are and how good you are at the moment. Define your status quo, because this is the only way to recognize your progress.

This brings us directly to the next point: training diary. Yes, every hard gamer should keep a diary where they record training and game results. So, when you have finished a Weekend League game, for example, the game info is your best friend. Because here you have all the basic statistics listed. Write them down in your training diary! Score, possession, shots, shots on goal, passing percentage, etc. EVERYTHING is relevant and helps to make you better!

Training structure - How often? How long? Which exercises?

Real eSports pros train 6-7 days a week for 8-16 hours a day, and that’s what it takes to keep up with the absolute best in the world. However, it’s not just about training as much as possible, but also about content and methodology.

After a match, professionals start directly with the match analysis, where they pay close attention to the tops and flops of the last match. Every ball loss and every goal conceded are closely scrutinized and then trained in isolation. The game scene is re-enacted in a friendly match and repeated until they are better able to resolve the situation. So, for example, if you concede too many goals through the wings, you have your training partner attack you through the wings until you are stable.

It is best to find a training partner who is slightly better than you. In addition, it is advantageous to watch the pros in order to learn one or two tricks. Another possibility is to start directly a coaching with a FIFA pro  and get taught all the tricks live.
