FIFA 18 Controls for Playstation, XBox, PC and Switch

 
 

The first thing you need to know before start playing is how to control your players. You can find here all the FIFA 18 controls for Playstation 4, Playstation 3, XBox One, XBox 360, PC and Nintendo Switch.

Is this 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 guide has all the FIFA 18 controls you will need to play the game.

Keep in mind 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.
