Are you looking for FIFA 15 controls ? You can find them here.

Short cut





It is the first time you play FIFA ? Are you used with PES controls ? Do you always make confusion between cross and shot buttons ? You don’t know how to sprint ? We are here to help you. This short guide has all the FIFA 15 controls you will need to play the game.

Don’t forget that you can change the button configuration to match with your preferences. You can either choose between three controller configurations (classic, alternate and two buttons) and select which one do you want to use before each match with an easy LT/RT or L2/R2 move.

There is a video at the end of this guide that shows you all the FIFA 15 controls.
