How Does Chemistry Work in FIFA 23?

Chemistry is the connection between your players to their team, league, and nation. The stronger the connection between the players, the better their in-game statistics will be.

EA has completely overhauled the way chemistry links work in FIFA 23. Here's how it works:

  • Squad Chemistry has been completely removed. You will no longer see the meter right below your squad name.
    • A new chemistry system is now in place that will be unique to each player.
    • Players will no longer harm their stats by having low chemistry. They will always play with their base stats.
  • Each player now has a diamond indicator on their card, which shows how much chemistry they have from 0-3 with your current squad.
    • Before, you would need to place the players adjacent to each other on your team for the chemistry links to take effect.
    • But in FIFA 23, players will only need to be in the same formation for the chemistry links to activate.
  • A new Chemistry Panel on your screen shows you which clubs, leagues, and nations you currently have in your formation.
    • This will allow players to know exactly where they need to improve their chemistry links and what players to look out for.
  • Any player that you have on your team will need to be in the position
    • Players will now be able to have up to three secondary positions.
    • This means that those players that are versatile in real life will be able to translate those skills to FIFA 23.
  • The Loyalty Bonus gained by playing 10 games with a player to obtain maximum chemistry has been completely removed.
  • A new chemistry system is now in place that will be unique to each player.
  • Players will no longer harm their stats by having low chemistry. They will always play with their base stats.
  • Before, you would need to place the players adjacent to each other on your team for the chemistry links to take effect.
  • But in FIFA 23, players will only need to be in the same formation for the chemistry links to activate.

  • Players will now be able to have up to three secondary positions.

FIFA 23 Ultimate Team will be the most accessible to new players who have always wanted to join FUT but were intimidated by its mechanics due to these changes.

How to Build Player Chemistry

FIFA 23 will no longer include Squad Chemistry. Instead, it will focus on developing the Chemistry of each player on your team. Players may earn up to three Chemistry points.

Three main factors go into deciding who will play your game Chemistry, including:

  • The only way to raise your Chemistry above 0 is to play your player in their Preferred Position.
    • If you play them out of position, they will remain at 0 despite having Chemistry with the Manager and other players.
  • Any player in your squad will only contribute to the Chemistry Threshold when they are in their preferred position.
    • This means they will not add any points to their Nation, Team, or League on the Chemistry Threshold.
  • You can change the players Preferred Position. So your players arent limited to the position you obtain them in.
  • If you play them out of position, they will remain at 0 despite having Chemistry with the Manager and other players.
  • This means they will not add any points to their Nation, Team, or League on the Chemistry Threshold.
  • If you play them out of position, they will remain at 0 despite having Chemistry with the Manager and other players.
  • This means they will not add any points to their Nation, Team, or League on the Chemistry Threshold.
  • Any player in your starting formation will put one point towards their Team, Nation, and League Chemistry Thresholds.
    • This is the primary way to increase your players chemistry and the most important one to learn.
    • As you add players with similar teams and such, the Chemistry Thresholds will increase and award the players that helped meet them Chemistry Points.
    • Players can obtain up to three Chemistry Points for each player.
  • This is the primary way to increase your players chemistry and the most important one to learn.
  • As you add players with similar teams and such, the Chemistry Thresholds will increase and award the players that helped meet them Chemistry Points.
  • Players can obtain up to three Chemistry Points for each player.
  • This is the primary way to increase your players chemistry and the most important one to learn.
  • As you add players with similar teams and such, the Chemistry Thresholds will increase and award the players that helped meet them Chemistry Points.
  • Players can obtain up to three Chemistry Points for each player.
  • The Manager Bonus will contribute to the Chemistry Threshold in two ways:
    • They will contribute one increment to the Chemistry Threshold of the Nation they represent.
    • They will contribute one increment to the Chemistry Threshold of the League they represent.
  • They will contribute one increment to the Chemistry Threshold of the Nation they represent.
  • They will contribute one increment to the Chemistry Threshold of the League they represent.
  • They will contribute one increment to the Chemistry Threshold of the Nation they represent.
  • They will contribute one increment to the Chemistry Threshold of the League they represent.

How to Raise Chemistry Threshold

Players from the same league, team, and nation must be included in your starting 11. To raise your Chemistry Threshold, youll need to introduce players from the same league, team, and nation to your team.

Here is an example of what that might be like:

  • This is an image of the Chemistry Threshold. Notice how there are two figures before the next threshold. Youll only need two Liverpool players to activate one Chemistry Point in your Liverpool players.
    • Youll need to reach the second threshold of five players to activate a second Chemistry Point using Liverpool players.
  • In this image, we have Trent-Alexander Arnold. To gain any points, you need to start by placing him in his preferred position, which is Right-Back.
  • Now add Andrew Robertson to your starting 11.
  • One diamond on their Chemistry indicator should light up to indicate that they have gained a Chemistry Point.
  • Youll need to reach the second threshold of five players to activate a second Chemistry Point using Liverpool players.
  • Youll need to reach the second threshold of five players to activate a second Chemistry Point using Liverpool players.
  • This means that youve successfully increased your Chemistry Threshold for Liverpool players.
  • You can follow the same formula for any team, league, and nation.
    • Teams will require two players to activate the first threshold.
    • Nations & Leagues will require three players each to activate the first threshold.
  • Teams will require two players to activate the first threshold.
  • Nations & Leagues will require three players each to activate the first threshold.
  • Teams will require two players to activate the first threshold.
  • Nations & Leagues will require three players each to activate the first threshold.
  • To go even further, if you were to add Jurgen Klopp as your Manager, youd Manager increment for your Premier League chemistry threshold and thus give both Trent- Alexander Arnold and Andrew Robertson a second Chemistry Point.

Depending on how many players you have for each League, Nation, or Club, here is how much Chemistry you will gain for the Chemistry Threshold:

Amount of ChemistryClubNationLeague
1 Chemistry Point2 Players2 Players3 Players
2 Chemistry Points4 Players5 Players5 Players
3 Chemistry Points7 Players8 Players8 Players

However, in order to make the most of this system, it is imperative that you understand the players' preferred positions and what that means. Without it, your player will not be able to earn any Chemistry Points from the Chemistry Threshold.

How Do I Find My FIFA 23 Players in a Preferred Position?

The player details section on FIFA 23 Ultimate Team will take you to a player's preferred position and alternate position.

Youll need to:

  • From the FUT main menu, press R1/RB/E until you get to the CLUB page.
  • Select Squad by pressing X/A/Enter.
  • From your Squad menu, go to the player of your choice and press R3/R/Select with Mouse.
  • This will bring up that specific players details.
  • From here, youll simply need to press R1/RB/E once to navigate to Player Details, where the information youre looking for will be under Preferred Position and Alternative Position(s) if any.

There is also a much simpler way to see all your starting 11s positions from the Squad menu if you have a controller.

  • From the menu, simply flick your right thumbstick to the left once. This will change the card views, and it will display your players Preferred Position information at the top of each card.

There are also Preferred Positions that have default Alternative Positions. These are only about the original Preferred Position and will not transfer to a position you changed a player into.

Here are the Alternative Positions for Default:

FIFA 23: How To Change a Player's Preferred Position

Players will need to install the Position Modifier consumable on their player to change positions in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team.

However, unlike in previous years, FIFA 23 has one universal position modifier consumable you may use to change a player into any of their alternate positions.

The removal of the RF and LF positions is another interesting addition to FIFA 23. FIFA stated that too many players were in those positions, but too few formations utilized them.

FIFA decided to phase out the positions completely. The few formations that used them will now employ CF instead.

How to Use Chemistry Style

Youll need to acquire the consumable of the style you want and apply it to your player through the Squad menu to use a Chemistry Style.

Here's how:

  • Head to the Squad menu.
  • Press Square/X on your player.
  • From here, interact with Apply Consumable
  • Navigate to the Chemistry Style section of the menu.
  • Click on the Chemistry Style that you wish to apply to your player.

Your players' Chemistry Style will be directly affected by how many Chemistry Points they have in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team.

  • 1 Chemistry Point = Small Boost to Attributes
  • 2 Chemistry Points = Medium Boost to Attributes
  • 3 Chemistry Points = Full Boost to Attributes

Each Chemistry Style receives a current boost in order. If a Chemistry Style has two stats boosts, theyll be more powerful than a style with three stats boosts.

Three additional stats mean that your player will benefit in more ways.
