FIFA 13 Achievements

Getting Real

Play 25 EAS FC Match Day Games  

This achievement is not hard but very time consuming. You have to play 25 EAS FC Match Day games. What's good is that you do NOT have to win them, only play them. You can simply start a match with any team and set the controller down and let the match play out on its own. This does not have to be done in one sitting either. Rumour has it that this achievement can only be unlocked by playing kick off matches in EAS FC Match Day. This is not confirmed though but to be safe I would do them in kick off.
Also when you are selecting your team you have to make sure match day is turned on. It will be in the middle of the screen, if it is off press  to turn it on.

Is this the same achievement as the live fixture list? Or just standard kick-off?

I think it's any thing in the EAS FC match day menu

Take 2 controllers go to kick off choose barca & madrid. kick the ball off and let them stand there until halftime, then advance through the halftime screen and let them stand there until 90 minutes. choose end match as draw and then hit rematch. Do that 25 times and it popped for me

Does it matter that I'm getting kicked of ea servers every 3-4 games when trying #8 method? Plus in my profile manager it says I have played 43 games but still no 30G

Is It possible to see how many games you've played? Statistick or matchcounter?

Was just wondering about this, what happens if you were to get the match called of by constantly getting red cards, say with a second controller? Haven't tried it myself was just considering it might work.

I've only got this cheevo to go and it's just not popping for me!
I've played about 46/47 kick off matches and still nothing, I'm lost ????
There's nothing on the net about it either, help anyone?

Just got this today. I did it on live fixture. It felt more like 40 rather than 25 lol. U dont have to do this in a row like the game of the week one.

Comment #17 by Knaussenheimer
Sunday, October 21, 2012 @ 09:09:40 PM

does this include live fixture and games of the week or just kick-off?

Comment #18 by NATE iz KING
Monday, October 22, 2012 @ 01:17:25 PM

I think games of the week count, I just unlocked this achievement after 15 kick-off games. I had played all of the games of the week the last two weeks which gives me the 25 needed.

On kick off you have to press Y to turn on Match day mode which takes stats from the last game that team played

This is the worst achievement on the game. I've got all achievements apart from this and 'Bros'. I've done at least 50 games, and nothing :(

Monday, December 24, 2012 @ 12:40:05 PM

According to my EA Profile I have played 34 games "EAS FC Match Day Games" and it still hasn't popped. Wondering how many I actually have to do.

Comment #27 by lukeac96
Monday, December 31, 2012 @ 09:25:12 AM

Additional information on the achievement for anyone who's still working on this:

First, you need to go to EAS FC Match Day kickoff and play against a friend with a second controller. You can select 4 minutes/half and do your regular matches. I think you can do this against the computer as well! Remember that match day must be on, otherwise is not working. AND YOU NEED TO BE ONLINE!

You can play with Clubs, National Teams and also have some fun with the Skill Challenges (you can also get a lot of extra achievements while doing this). Also, you can see how many games you have played in the Profile Manager.

Anyone understand how to do this yet?

Just played over 25 kick off games with Match Day On (it's automatically set at that) and nothing...

Comment #31 by Jezamiah
Thursday, January 03, 2013 @ 08:21:14 PM

Over 50+ games and still got fucking nothing.
I've been told that these fixes worked for other people (sit hasn't for me) so give it a go.
Play the match , Once at the main menu Go To My Fifa 13 , Click Profile , Save , or something like that, save personal settings 1 , then rinse and repeat 25 times.
1. Erase your FIFA 13 data. ALL of it, leave nothing but your online pass on your harddrive then repeat the above strategy of saving after each game and DO NOT REMATCH.
"i just STAYED LOGGED on on the web app, loitering in my profile overview (which said i hadn't played any games for some reason) i played one game from the kick off menu and it popped."
Hope these work for some of you :( I heard that if you had Early access there's a glitch th

How the bloody hell do you get this achievement... Ive Played 34 Kick off games and nothing!!! Its ridiculous.

Comment #34 by shaunislegend
Tuesday, January 15, 2013 @ 12:52:55 PM

Just got this, very straight forward dont see how people are having problems?
Just go to EAS FC MATCH DAY then KICK OFF and make sure MATCH DAY in the centre of the screen is turned ON.

i got it pretty quickly i already had 5 games played from doing the achievement for doing all of the games of the week (i think those count)

but yeah, i noticed most leagues dont get affected from this match-day ratings thing so i would probably avoid them just incase- choose teams that are.

Comment #35 by shaunislegend
Tuesday, January 15, 2013 @ 12:54:50 PM

i must add that i was saving my FIFA 13 profile after each match. Don't know if this is needed but some say it is.

Played near 50 games of Kick-Off with Match Day on and it hasn't popped any way to fix this??

Comment #38 by nmewareagle
Tuesday, January 22, 2013 @ 01:50:37 AM

Just want to comment that the only place I could find to see how many matches I had played was on the the online web app (i.e. you have to get on your computer and get on the Internet (which, by the way, if you're from EA - this is complete and utter BS). The link is:

If someone knows how to do this in-game please inform me - I'd really like to know.

Comment #39 by C0bbst3r
Tuesday, January 22, 2013 @ 04:40:16 PM

Comment #40 by DIPL0D0CUS
Friday, January 25, 2013 @ 03:55:11 PM

For me the web app says I have no stats for anything despite having pumped so many hours into this game... This is a poor achievement.

Comment #41 by luksmbarros
Sunday, January 27, 2013 @ 02:00:25 AM

in the website of ea sports says that i have already played 71 eas match day e the achievement didn't pop for me? how i fix this?

Comment #42 by mracree9
Thursday, January 31, 2013 @ 11:33:33 AM

Mine said I played 67 games, and then after playing one and refreshing the page it said 68... so I'm in the same boat as #41

#39 and #40, when I was on the Web App I had the same issue, I clicked on the cog next to my username (to bring up options) and it said like 'persona' or something, a quick scroll down had my gamertag with the Xbox 360 logo next to it, as opposed to the gamertag with EA logo, clicked on that and it updated it all, I'm wondering if thats going to affect it somehow, so will I have to play 24 more games?? I'll let you know when I get to 92 if I have the achievement!

Comment #43 by Knaussenheimer
Thursday, January 31, 2013 @ 04:42:46 PM

Comment #45 by assassinscreeds
Saturday, February 02, 2013 @ 02:08:53 AM

I have tried both kick off and live fixture but nothing. Does it matter that every time I finish match it won't connect to easfc server but re-signs in with no problem straight after?

Comment #46 by assassinscreeds
Saturday, February 02, 2013 @ 08:22:09 AM

Just been on web app like some people have said. According to that I have played 160 match day games! Still no achievement though

Comment #47 by TrueBlade94
Wednesday, February 06, 2013 @ 05:50:32 PM

I just got this achievement after playing and completing 28 Match Day games. Pay no attention to the figures on the EA website (It said I was on 58 games...)! I played the game with 4 minute half's and on Amateur, most of the games I won but some I didn't! I kept a record of what teams I had used and how many games I had played and I used teams from the Premier League right down to nPower League 2 (Playing lots of local derbys).

I noticed after finishing three of the games that there wasn't an update in my news feed on EAS FC saying 'You just played a EAS FC Match Day Kick Off match and won. Rochdale 4 - 1 Oldham Athletic. 158 XP 50 FCC' so obviously to count, it must have to post in your news feed! Otherwise you will have to play another for it to count!

Hope this helps anyone!

Thursday, February 07, 2013 @ 12:55:17 PM

Easy, if you can't be bothered to play them all just sit the controller down and let the game finish 0-0. But make sure you're signed into the servers otherwise it won't count them.

Comment #49 by C0bbst3r
Thursday, February 07, 2013 @ 06:43:39 PM

#42 I've played 67 games as well and still nothing. Have tried everything and nothing seems to work

Comment #51 by Silent_Murder92
Sunday, February 24, 2013 @ 12:53:16 PM

I had 250 games acording to the website.
Then I re-started my tallies on paper that I had done, making sure that I only played with teams in the big leagues (BPL, LIGA BBVA etc) where they actually pay attention to team forms.
Make sure that home and away are teams with in/out of form players. Then win, draw or lose 25 times. :)
Simples. Hope this helps.

WTF can somebody help

Comment #54 by Virtual Michael
Saturday, March 16, 2013 @ 07:32:32 AM

I dont get why everyone is complaining about this one. This is how I did it...

Make sure match day live is on, set to 4mins, then whatever difficulty you play on. I chose teams without any formed players on, so i didn't play as a premier league team. I chose the championship, league 1 and league 2. Then after 11 games it popped, so must have played 14games with my sister, which is about right.

If the match goes on your news feed, then it should have counted.

it says on the app that ive played 0 games.

3. i am on live
4. after the match it gets post on the match day wall.

Friday, March 29, 2013 @ 05:40:20 PM

At first I wasn't getting this achievement either but then I tried #31 method. I had to play 25 matches but would just start the match and put down the controller. After each match I saved my profile as well.

Comment #59 by eMiN10

Comment #61 by Berry2013
Sunday, May 12, 2013 @ 01:07:19 PM

I have all Fifa 13 achievements and the last one I got was this one. I encountered the same issue as many above and played a lot more than 25 games.

What to do is play a match (ensuring Match Day is on), doesn't matter whether the team have form. After each match, exit, and save your Fifa profile via the menu.

Then go ahead an play again. Act as if you haven't played a match and start at one, it should pop at 25 (providing you save each time), if your lucky, it might pop earlier (popped at 20 for me)

On the web app it says I've played zero matches:

Absolutely no idea what to do about this!

Comment #64 by ACiD 2D
Saturday, June 08, 2013 @ 05:37:53 AM

@ 63, if you go into your profile settings and click the drop down menu and select your 360 profile instead of the EA one, this should then show you the number of games. Mine says 186 but i don't have the achievement, must calculate your career mode games and the kick off games together.

Comment #65 by GBouras
Monday, June 17, 2013 @ 05:05:46 PM

@64 changed it to my xbox profile - says I've played 55 match day games. Glitched EA bullshit

Can't edit posts. But apparently I've now played 275 of them. However none of my games are going into the EASFC feed and I'm not getting xp for any of the games.

Comment #69 by tollyboy22
Thursday, July 04, 2013 @ 01:58:08 PM

I just got it. It may work for some:

I had played loads of matches and nothing worked. I logged into web app on laptop and clicked on
It said I had played 0 matches.

I clicked the cog next to my username and change it to the username with XBOX 360 next to it.

I left myself signed in on the laptop.

I played a game Man U Vs Arsenal - all normal settings.

I won and the achievement appeared.

Comment #70 by TheNarrator23
Monday, July 08, 2013 @ 04:01:48 PM

This is f'ing bullshit. My FIFA profile says I have 810 matches, but online I have nothing. All I have that shows is 2 pre-season matches that I played 9 months ago.

Get your fucking shit together EA. Fuck this achievement and FUCK YOU.

i have messed up the achievement i have played over 100 matches EAS FC Match Day Games of the Week in a single week

but the achv says that play 25 friendy. i will started today and i will tell you

Comment #72 by ToM91x
Wednesday, July 10, 2013 @ 05:11:28 AM

When I look at my profile in the web app, it says i never played a game. LOL. Meanwhile the newsfeed in EAS FC sometimes keeps record of the kick off games I play.

Does anyone know how to resolve this? I would be freakin' raging if this EA bullshit keeps me from getting 1000/1000 in this game :(

Thanks guys!

Thursday, July 11, 2013 @ 01:46:36 AM

If you're about to loose your sanity over this achievement this is a consolidated list of every bit of advice that I used and it worked.

1. in xbox dashboard go to storage, fifa 13, and delete everything except your online pass and vids (doesn't take that long to set favorites and online stats are safe) (instantly gives you most up to date rosters too)
2. I only used kickoff, professional difficulty, 4 min and teams from La Liga, Premier League, Serie A, Bundesliga, and International
3. make sure match day is on (shows team rank)
4. after the game go back to main menu NOT restart, if tied I always chose classic
5. make sure always connected to EA servers, if connection dropped game doesn't count
6. doesn't have to be in one sitting but make sure after you grind a couple games out g

Comment #74 by footballfreek
Thursday, July 11, 2013 @ 01:49:31 AM

6. doesn't have to be in one sitting but make sure after you grind a couple games out go and save before you exit to dashboard or shutoff
7. by deleting everything in step 1 you can count how many games in My fifa, profile management, top right, got to 25 and popped
8. My EA internet profile said I played 110 EAS match day games, can be misleading
*9. Best bit of advice I saw concerned every time you've updated rosters, possible bug in these updates that resets your match counter to 0 for this achievement, by deleting in step 1 I'm guessing it cleared the bug from roster updates
10. sometimes it recorded my games in news feed and sometimes it didn't, don't think it matters

many of the tips are from this forum so thanx to whoever said all this stuff first

Sunday, July 14, 2013 @ 08:41:17 AM

My EA profile said I had played 119 EAS FC Match Day matches, but no achievement. Followed the guide in #73 & #74 and it unlocked after 25 matches. Thanks a lot everyone, deleting your data seems to be the way to go! I played mainly with Arsenal with oppositions from around the world, so i can confirm it works with every country and league. I saved the profile after every match as well. I played 4 minutes halfs on semi-pro, I won all the matches, don't know if you need to tho.

I had almost given up getting 1000/1000 in this game, whick would have broken my FIFA series combo.

Monday, April 28, 2014 @ 05:16:26 PM

Finally got it after reading comments on here. Id played loads of kick off matches with match day turned on and nothing. All i did were go to fifa 13 profile and save it once and then played another match on kick off and it popped after 90 minutes. So I'm guessing you gotta save profile for them to register as played.

Comment #82 by Unknownguy18
