FIFA 11 Achievements

FIFA for Life

Spend 50 hours on the pitch   

This achievement will require dedication and there is no way to get around it. Please note that this achievement, as it says in the description, must be worked toward with with actual time spent playing, not just flicking through menus or pausing the game.

I should also point out that due to the nature of other achievements in this game, I would recommend not allowing any of the controllers to disconnect at any time during a match as this may void the match and the time you spent may not count.

i suggest doing all the other achievments as they will bring you up alot of hours on pitch such as 100 ranked matches win a game in all stadiums win a game with a team from every league they will put your playing time up a lot and if u havent got it by then just play games until the achievment unlocks

is there a way i can check how long i have spent so far?

Comment #12 by mikekleijn
Monday, December 20, 2010 @ 05:34:48 AM

You can check your time by just checking your number of played games (300 for example) and ,you mostly played 4 min half (online was 6 min I thought?) and then you just do ; 4 xx 2 (a game is 2 half's!) x 300 = 2400 min. 50 hour is 3000 min. 3000-2400 = 600 min = 6 hours = some 80 games. And if you play 5 min half blah blah.

We all love mathematics, don't we?

So much harder because this is actual game time not browsing the menus in career:(

Saturday, December 25, 2010 @ 07:14:19 PM

Ok this is how you do it. Select 1 controller on each team. Go into overtime and go into penalty kicks and just leave they kick it at the goalie everytime. Easy 50 hours.

Probably one of the most idiotic achievements I've ever seen.

Comment #24 by JDAckers
Wednesday, January 19, 2011 @ 06:42:55 AM

This popped up yesterday when I was playing online, I thought I was on about 30-40 hrs max. I've played about 40 online head to heads, 3 or 4 seasons on career, and a lot of games vs my brother. It all adds up, and you will get this one way before your 100% it.

Can you pause the game and leave your xbox on for ages to get the achievement?

Comment #26 by Shanooo92
Friday, January 21, 2011 @ 12:05:57 PM

Got mine today, without thinking I was even close.

In regard to Supernoods question, I'm 90% certain that you have to play the matches
in order for the hours to count. If you are going for 100% It comes very easy.

Comment #27 by Son Of Apathy
Friday, January 21, 2011 @ 05:35:10 PM

This achievement comes a lot quicker than expected. I've played about 150 games online and about 3 seasons in Manager Mode. I'd also played around about 30 games in Ultimate Team but there is no way I thought I was near 50 hours, keep playing and it will come Good Luck!

This achievement will be pain, but no way near as bad as the FIFA 09 achievement that required you to spend 50 hrs on the pitch in real time. And you earned 1G. Hooray!

Comment #32 by Jackalus88

I laughed at the person who said 600 minutes equals 6 hours, try 10.

is there any way of finding out how many mins you have played all ready

Comment #34 by maur1c1o
Wednesday, March 02, 2011 @ 06:54:02 PM

This achievement isnt that bad at all theres ways around it. You can always try setting a match up for the longest lengh with two cntrollers and just leave it watch a movie or the BIG BANG THEORY (love it) or just play the game online on virtual pro mode its great fun ive always been a pes fan but fifa 11 is great apart from the achievements 50 hours isnt that bad especially if you like me unemployed :-(

Comment #35 by M95H
Saturday, March 12, 2011 @ 04:40:23 AM

cant you just leave the game alone when you get a free kick. as long as the controller doesnt disconnect

Sunday, May 01, 2011 @ 12:16:24 AM

To those who say it's boring and hard....

If you play 500 games with your VP, you get this one. So it's definetely not the hardest in the game...

this is really hard to get

Comment #63 by TheSonic502
Sunday, August 07, 2011 @ 10:42:38 AM

There is a way to do it. Start a game with two controllers and
wait for it to get to ninty minutes. Then do the same in extra
time and when it gets to penalties do something in your time as
it will always shoot down the middle and the keeper will always
save it cuz u havnt done anywhere to dive. That way you can
even leave your Xbox on over night and then the achievement
shouldnt be too hard to get

I looked at my stats on and i've played this game for over 70 hours and I don't stay on the menus for very long, but still don't have this achievement O.o can it be done using in with two people playing on the same console as that's what I mainly do?

Comment #77 by SeanTBishop
Sunday, December 25, 2011 @ 04:55:39 PM

To be honest, 50 hours on a decent game isn't too hard to do. I haven't done it yet, but I think I'm close. I've played about 330 games, an average of maybe 4 to 5 minutes a half, I only need another 30 or so games. A real difficult one to get it 500 VP games.

It's the 25th December, and I've played Modern Warfare 3 for 2 days 6 hours (54 hours) since it came out, and my disc has been unreadable for the last week. 50 hours isn't too long a time when playing a game you enjoy.

tl; dr: 50 hours isn't a very long time for 100G when you like the game.

Comment #79 by BEATMAN184
Friday, April 27, 2012 @ 01:03:48 AM

This achievement takes no skill but is just really time consuming, so it's actually pretty easy. Just go to Kick-off and set the time to 20 minute half's and put the difficulty on amateur. Then just go do something else and leave the game on (all you have to do is press "A" occasionally for a free kick or goal kick) because in the game since the difficulty is on amateur the opposition just stands around and doesn't do much.
