To help you get started, here’s a step-by-step guide on how to scout in FIFA 23 Career Mode:

  1. Hire Scouts — The very first thing you’ll want to do is hire new scouts, which can be found under the “Transfers” tab on the main Career Mode page. If you’re managing a team that already has four or five-star scouts, then you might be able to just skip this step. However, if you’re starting off with a smaller club, you’ll need to allocate a good portion of your budget to sign four and five-star scouts. When hiring a scout, you should focus on two factors; Judgement and Experience.
  2. Global Transfer Network — After you’ve hired a scout, the next step is to assign them to a specific region of the world from the Global Transfer Network page. Which includes regions like Northern Europe, Southern Europe, Central Europe, the Rest of Europe, South America, North America, Asia, and Australia. It doesn’t really matter which region you choose, but Central Europe is home to some countries renowned for their ability to generate world-class footballers.
  3. Set up Scouting Instructions — Once you’ve hired scouts and selected a region, the next step is to adjust the scouting instructions to filter the type of players the scouts should be looking for. In FIFA 23, players can set up six different scouting instructions, the parameters include position, attributes, age, and contract. Not all of these need to be adjusted just the ones that are important to find the player you want. You can find the best deals by searching for expired or expiring contracts.
  4. Analyze Scouting Reports — Scouting reports are done in a step-by-step process, with more information flowing in about certain players as the season progresses. Sometimes, you can work with an incomplete scouting report if you’re pressed for time and it already contains the piece of information you were after (star, potential, morale, physical profile, etc.). However, many times, it’s best to wait for the full report so that you know everything there is about a particular player. The full scouting report shows the entire profile of the player including all attributes, traits, biodata, and overall rating. From there, you can either shortlist the player or immediately proceed to the transfer hub to make an offer.
