Start your season with the star of tomorrow in FIFA 22 Career Mode.
The Homegrown Talent in FIFA 22 Career Mode is one bonus feature that no player should miss. This particular player starts as part of your youth team but has the potential to become one of the most prolific players in the game. In this guide, we’ll tell you how to find and best use your star of the future in this year’s FIFA.
You should receive a Homegrown Talent to start each Manager Career mode season if you pre-ordered the game. It is worth noting that there was a bug with the activation of Homegrown Talent within the game until the start of this week, but a patch is now live, and accessing the star player requires only a straightforward method.
How to Find Your Homegrown Talent – FIFA 22
Once you’ve started your new Career Mode, go to your youth squad and look at the roster. You should notice that one of your players is leagues above the rest in terms of potential, and this is your Homegrown Talent. Of course, you’ll want to take a look at their current overall rating before automatically adding them to the first squad but provided it’s close or close enough to your average player rating. They can quite often make the first team from the start of the season.
Make sure to include your Homegrown Talent in all training sessions to ensure the quickest and most effective ability growth. You’ll also want to decide what kind of player you want your upstart to become, so assign them growth goals. It’s imperative to get your youth players involved early if Youth Development is a large part of the Board Expectations at your chosen club.
Your Homegrown Talent is unsurprisingly from your club’s home nation. For instance, if you start at Manchester United, your star player will be English. If you want to develop the wunderkind at both a club and international level, try to pick a league with a solid national squad and a domestic league like Spain, Germany, or England.
Those are the basics on Homegrown Talent in FIFA 22 and how to use them most effectively in your team. If you need more tips and tricks for the new season on FIFA, make sure to check out our page of dedicated guides for all the latest advice and walkthroughs.
