FIFA 22 features a new Close Control System, which varies player movement across the pitch. Players like Gustavo, Neymar and Hulk will benefit from having access to more opportunities to get on the end of the ball, while players on the flanks will be more at risk of being overrun and caught out of position.
In this feature, we take a look at:

New Dribbling System
The new dribbling system sees players now deal more unpredictable levels of damage when they are on the ball. Dribbling in FIFA 22 will be riskier than ever. The new dribbling system will not only affect players when they are tackled, but also influence players’ ball control when they are off the ball.
Tackles will be more unpredictable and effective. Players will be more likely to go down, and be vulnerable to counter attacks. Players can now be more ragged and fallible when they are on the ball, and this will increase the level of unpredictability for the players in possession. The new dribbling system will give the ball away far more often, but it will also cause players to deal more unpredictable levels of damage when they are tackled.
The new dribbling system also applies to headers, which means players will be able to scoop up the ball and beat a defender with their head.
The new dribbling system will also see players receive more contact on the ball in unexpected areas, and players will often take damage when the ball is placed outside the area where they are expected to be. The new dribbling system will make tackling players far more unpredictable and challenging, and it will change the way in which players tackle and shield the ball.

Global media has reached number 1, but on the pitch, the world’s best media industry isn’t clear-cut
Digital and social data available to us now through our phones and tablets have created what Brad Feld, managing director at the Foundry Group, calls “the attention economy”. The audience has become better at shaping what it consumes. The people most likely to consume certain content are now much more well informed, and content that is most well received by audiences is best served to us. In a business context, it is well understood that content will find fans, and it is for this reason that brands spend so much time and money building it.
In this environment, the year of the athlete is no longer enough to ensure that an athlete will have influence across digital channels. Disruption is coming and traditional marketing is not well equipped to stop it. For marketers, as consumers have more choice than ever before, they are expecting brands to go beyond traditional media and get closer to their audience. We are being asked to do more with less, and it is in this context that we need to consider the evolution of the game we play.
Brands: You’re the one responsible for athlete marketing
Brands: You’re the one responsible for athlete marketing The game industry has been in a bubble for some time. The change to how people consume content through smartphones, tablets and laptops has been significant, and athletes have not been well prepared for it. Less than 10% of the global population is actively participating in sports, and even fewer are spending money on it.
In the UK for example, there are 1.5m active participants in football on a Saturday, and fewer than 1% are spending more than £100 per month. This means that the income generated for brands is 100,000-fold less than the amount generated by media. Brands need to start to think through how their approach to athletes can be re-worked to embrace these changes.
Many brands are looking at sport to make their brands more engaging and ubiquitous. But the best athletes should be the ones to do this. They should benefit from their sports, not the brands. Otherwise, the burden is on the brands
