How to play Kick Off 

In FIFA 23, Kick Off is simple enough to find, but is crucial to trying to figure out who is the best amongst you and your pals. Kick Off can be found as one of the options in the in-game menus, but once you’re there, there are a few options. 

After you go into Kick Off, the first thing you will need to do is choose your side. Once again this is simple enough, you move your controller either left or right to choose home or away. If you and your friend are on the same side, you will be playing on the same team. 

If no sides are selected then you will be watching the AI play out a game, but you can always jump in using the side select tool in the settings.
