The active stadium is the one where you will play your home matches when you are the host of matches, which happens when you have the best connection. That means three advantages: you get an advance of some milliseconds over your opponent, play with your ball and you play on your stadium. Check if you did everything possible to improve your connection
: test your ping, open the router ports and play with NAT 1
. The better your connection is and the closer you are from your opponent, the highest is your chance of playing without lagging.
The stadium items affect not only the visibility but also the game play. If you are not one of the gamers who loved to collect all the game items, you will only need one stadium. The one that will be active. It makes no sense to own another stadium since you only may have one active stadium at a time. Even if for some reason you wanted to change the stadium, like to adjust weather conditions to the players you have chosen to a specific match, you never know in advance if you will be the host or not.
You probably don’t even need to buy a stadium because the starter pack already brings one. However, we recommend to do it. Change it to another of your choice and sell the old stadium after activating the new one.
If you go for that path, you must choose one of the licensed stadiums included in the game or customize the FUT Stadium. If you like any specific stadium go to the transfer market and filter by the respective category.
You should choose a stadium and get used to it. If it is different from your opponent’s stadium and if you are the host, you will have an advantage over him. The more familiar you are with the stadium and the less usual it is, the greater your advantage will be.
Each stadium has an associated an odd of having sun, rain or snow. It is very difficult to dominate the ball in good conditions, with rain and even harder with snow. If you want to avoid playing on this weather, you should choose one of the stadiums
where it never happens. Besides these gameplay limitations, weather conditions also influence the visibility, especially with specific balls.
The visibility on a FUT match depends on the camera settings that you have chosen on the main FIFA menu. You can select an existing camera or you can create a custom camera adjusting its height and zoom. However, each stadium also has some weight on how you view the field. It may exist that some stadium elements will block your view, which will happen with corner kicks in small fields, or there may be something even worse: the shadows cast by those elements on the pitch. They are responsible for obstructing the view of the ball and sometimes the players. If you often play during the day and feel uncomfortable with the shadows, pay more attention to the stadium you select. Generally speaking, the highest cameras are the most popular ones. They are awful for a dribbling style but greater if you love long throws, pace and long shots. They give you the chance to see a better distribution of the players on the field.
