What are the positioning changes for FIFA 23?
Position changes have always been important in FIFA, especially in FUT where you need to link your players together. FIFA 23 brings big changes to chemistry, which means they can do the same with position changes. This will take some getting used to if you’ve been playing the series for years now, but we’ve put together a quick explanation below to give you the basics of how position changes will work in FIFA 23.

As FIFA 23 removes links in chemistry, players no longer need to swap out their forward for a central midfielder to connect with their centre-back. Now those players connect no matter where they play on the field. However, this does not mean that a player always sticks to his given position. Instead, FIFA 23 replicates a player’s real-world positioning to give you a few options.
Most players in FIFA 23 will be equipped with at least one secondary position. You can use a position modifier to bring them to that position between games. Really versatile players can have up to three, but that will likely be rare.
A good example of this new system is someone like Alphonso Davies. He usually plays as a left-back for FC Bayern Munich, but often plays further up when he plays for Canada. In previous FIFAs it was impossible to make him a left winger unless EA released a new version of him. With FIFA 23’s new position changes, he can easily make the jump and become a quick attacker in your setup.
The new opportunities this move opens up across the field cannot be overstated. While you won’t see someone like Kylian Mbappe play in midfield anymore, you will see quite a bit more diversity in the players’ line-ups.
