FIFA 11 Achievements

Virtual Legend

Play 500 matches with your Virtual Pro   

To have a match count toward your total you must have your Virtual Pro appear on the field in the match and then 'complete' the match. The length of the match, difficulty etc. doesn't matter, just as long as you 'complete' it. You can complete a match by either having it finish by any means (e.g. Full-Time, Penalties) or by having the remainder of the match simulated. Using the second method you are actually able to 'complete' matches within a minute of starting a match.

You can get a rough estimate of how many games your Virtual Pro has played by going to the Main Menu -> MY FIFA 11 -> SETTINGS & PROFILE -> FIFA 11 PROFILE -> PROFILE MANAGER then in the top-right corner you can see how many games you've played in total. You will need to deduct your ranked matches off this number so go to the Main Menu -> XBOX LIVE -> MY FIFA 11 ONLINE -> PLAYER HUB then hold and scroll to Career Stats. Take away your Games Played from here from the number you read on your Profile Manager to get the total number of games you've played where Virtual Pros are allowed. You may or may not have used your Virtual Pro in every one of these games so this is only a rough estimate.

Please note that if your controller disconnects at any time during a match then that match may not count toward your total.

this is great achievement because when you trying to beat it and your match half time is setup at 5 min, at 300 match you'll get fifa for life achievement and after another 200 matches you'll get this achievement ;) and also doing this you'll get another achievements like folklore, it's in the blood, record holder, rising talent etc. (so you'll get 300+ G's)

make ur pro a goalkeeper and put urself on any random team. then make for that team another goalkeeper that has ALL stats on 1 and make him small and fat. now release all other goalkeepers ont hat team and start up a career. just go and get yourself redcarded all the time. it counts as finishing the game and each game will count towards this achievement.
despite this i just cant be bothered to do it 500 times!!!!

p.s make 4/5 save files for this. u will never get dropped due to the other keeper just being so bad.

Such a time consuming and boring achievement, who in the right mind would sit there for longer than 50 hours on the game. It's nearly double that time aswell. pfft

To see how many games u've played, go to 'My FIFA 11' then 'Settings and Profile' then

Thats overall. I dont think you can find out how many you have played with your pro. Unless in career mode and Pro Clubs. Frustrating but i will get there ... someday :)

Saturday, January 29, 2011 @ 01:58:58 PM

guys i already played 500 matches with my pro and still didn't get the achievement so ithink you have to play with your pro only and not with your pro in the team.

Comment #20 by Shanooo92
Sunday, January 30, 2011 @ 08:59:17 AM

Aye I'm confused to the fact, does playing with your pro in the team count towards this

Does it matter if you change between difficultys? PLaying some on semi-pro and some on world class for example. I have played over 400 games, during all of them I have been connected, now I'm going away for 2 weeks and I want to take my game and xbox with me, but there is no connection where I'm going, can I do the last 100 games offline, or will it all be reset?

Comment #28 by ScummyAncelotti

@19 jus got this achievement, I had to play almost 700 games of clubs because other team kept leaving, they have to be games that are finished or they won't count

Comment #31 by tommygun1707
Saturday, March 05, 2011 @ 03:49:51 PM

matches cannot be simulated cos it says ''PLAY'' 500 matches and i think you have to play as your pro NOT as a team, i just play pro clubs, its more fun than keep getting yourself sent off

Comment #32 by tommygun1707
Saturday, March 05, 2011 @ 03:51:40 PM

also make sure your controller does not disconnect in a game cos it will not count...apparently

Comment #33 by israeltiezo

Comment #34 by xDuNgErSx
Tuesday, March 22, 2011 @ 01:04:53 PM

Tuesday, April 05, 2011 @ 03:11:13 AM

I made nearly 100 Career Mode´s games with my virtual pro playing as ANY.
Then I came here and saw the NEEDS to do the 500 VP games (i.e. have to play
ONLY with your VP) and saw that boosting hint too: play as GK and slide,
slide, slide until achieve a red card. I've made 400 games playing ONLY
as GK, using that method, and then the achievement poped-up. So, I'm pretty sure
(unless if there's a bug) that playing as ANY will work too... If you don't
want too boost and have some kind of fun, this is a way. Playing normally as
ANY Player instead of that boring GK-Slide-Red Card.
OK, it's more fun but A LOT MORE TIME CONSUMING to do it too, lol.

Comment #39 by ScummyAncelotti
Tuesday, April 05, 2011 @ 09:29:39 AM

so Exiler you jus played normal games? thats good to know because ive been playin jus as my virtul pro so will carry on playin as the whole team if this is the case

Comment #40 by ExiLeR
Tuesday, April 05, 2011 @ 05:00:57 PM

@ScummyAncelotti, indeed.. I've played 100 games in career mode,
with my VP, choosing ANY instead of "Only my VP", then I saw some mates saying
that to do that cheevo we have to play only with VP and tried that "GK-Slide-Slide-Red Card" method to boost it (cuz I don't like to play ONLY with the VP), and... surprise... when I played my 400 game, the achievement poped-up.

I don't know if I was lucky or something, but one thing I can say.. I really
don't have played 500 games !!ONLY WITH VP!!.

Comment #41 by ScummyAncelotti
Tuesday, April 05, 2011 @ 05:07:14 PM

yea i done the red card shit for a while but jus got boring cheers for the tip man thats means i surely dont have many more games to go :)

Comment #42 by ScummyAncelotti
Sunday, April 10, 2011 @ 11:57:22 AM

yesssss fuckin sick finally got this cheevo and i can confirm that exlier is correct you can play normal games with your virtual pro jus stick at it GET IN!!!

Comment #43 by israeltiezo
Monday, May 09, 2011 @ 09:00:58 PM

This achievement is waste of time, Ive got the 50 hours and 100 matches online, but this one is too much, you must love playing 500 matches with your virtual pro, it seems boring after some time. This Fifa has stupid achievements, they could make them more intresting note so boring.

Comment #44 by Gman10692
Tuesday, May 10, 2011 @ 10:36:34 AM

@ScummyAncelotti, did you get the achievement by playing career mode with your virtual pro as part of the team or did you have to play as your virtual pro in career?

Comment #45 by ScummyAncelotti
Monday, May 23, 2011 @ 07:20:45 AM

@ Gman10692 u can jus play as your team in career mode dude

Got this at the start of the year. I do have over 500 games for my online club alone though, without counting any games played in Pro Ranked matches or any of my Career seasons.

£40, value for money or what.

Comment #56 by chelseaman99
Thursday, July 21, 2011 @ 12:00:06 PM

When you're using the GK slide/red card trick you rack up the games pretty quickly, although it's pretty boring.

Personally I'm playing a mixture of the GK trick and normal career mode matches.

Comment #57 by Arj
Wednesday, July 27, 2011 @ 12:12:42 PM

Does the games count towards this achievement if you play as the whole team, while your virtual pro is in the starting 11?

Say what you want I got this achievement just playing for fun its very entertaining trying to take your Pro to the top I made it to ST 85 Overall Too bad my pro somehow got deleted a while ago but got the achievement in time.

Comment #60 by hat500
Thursday, August 04, 2011 @ 09:02:32 PM

Yes it counts when you are the whole team cause your pro is playing the game

Comment #61 by YoungCunni
Sunday, August 07, 2011 @ 08:56:33 PM

quick way to get the achievement is go into career and start playing every game and get your pro sent off it counts as a game fully played

Comment #62 by MarkoSuarez7
Friday, August 12, 2011 @ 07:53:24 AM

this achievement is taking the piss for me i have played 700 games and still no achievement, do you have to start the game from kick off till end of match with your pro, or can you just bring him on as a sub in the end of the game because in my season every couple of gmaes my vp is f'd, so i bring him off the bench does this count?

Comment #63 by Fatcat594
Saturday, August 20, 2011 @ 02:03:18 PM

This is being a bitch of an achievement! i have played 678 club games and i still havnt go the achievement? If i recall you have to play club games with your f-ing pro! can someone explain to me why i havnt got the achievement yet?

Comment #65 by Serbia11

Do we play as our pro only? Or are we able to play as a team with the pro on it?

Saturday, August 20, 2011 @ 07:11:21 PM

Finally got this to get them all.. After around 400 red cards from reckless tackles from me as the keeper, glad that's finished!

Comment #67 by KieronIsCool
Wednesday, September 07, 2011 @ 11:16:04 AM

Finally got this achievement! Most time consuming achievement i think i've done. If it's any help to anyone, I only counted the games that I played as my VP, and I did a mix of the GK/red card method and pro clubs. 1000G's baby, woohoo!

Comment #68 by TKOxKi7VGDOM
Saturday, September 17, 2011 @ 07:56:27 AM

If you want this achievement without hundreds of red cards play for a club like stoke city or bolton play as many premier league games as you can and get as far as you can in the cups a season if you play and league games and get to the final in each cup you will have played roughly 55 games also try to get in the champions league so you play more games and play in all friendlys that appear.

Comment #69 by SeanTBishop
Thursday, October 27, 2011 @ 04:33:39 AM

I don't know if this has been answered above, because some of the comments aren't very clear.

Do you specifically have to play as your VP player, playing as just the one player for 500 games, or can you play as the the entire team?

For example, say I'm at AC Milan and my VP is a LB, can I play controlling the whole team, or do I have to only control the LB?

Jesus christ I just got this achievement legit. No red cards, no goalkeeping glitch nothing. Pain in the arse chievo.

You can grab your virtual pro and play career mode.

Comment #73 by SeanTBishop
Thursday, December 29, 2011 @ 11:27:24 AM

Does anyone know if you can assign your VP to say, Stoke City, then play loads of games on Exhibition Mode as Stoke with your VP in the squad? Thanks in advance.

My VP has earned 250 appearances on Career Mode as a player or player/manager, but now I'm only getting offers to be a manager at God awful teams such as FC Brno in the Czech league, so I'm giving up with Career Mode (unless Exhibition Mode tactic doesn't count).

tl; dr: Can I play Exhibition Mode instead of Career Mode with my VP in the squad.

Comment #74 by SeanTBishop
Friday, January 13, 2012 @ 12:22:02 PM

Me again.

Thinking of starting a new career mode with the same VP, will the new apps go towards the same total?


Comment #75 by PB 2k09
Thursday, April 26, 2012 @ 10:37:24 AM

Just got this. All games played in all you careers count (playing just as your VP or the whole team does not matter), all the kick off games count and all online games count. Just need to make sure u finnish the game.
