FIFA 12 - Trophy Guide and Road Map
Credit to RomanClaret for the banner
FIFA 12, EA Sports' yearly football franchise brings a whole host of innovative and revolutionary features to the beautiful game. These include the new Impact Engine, which has made the game ever more realistic with every tackle and collision you make. FIFA 12 also includes Tactical Defending, a major overhaul to the defensive play; now defending requires skill, patience and precision.
Online has had a massive revamp as well. The introduction of ‘Head to Head Seasons’ and ‘Head to Head Cup’ mode, replace the bland Head to Head matches. There is also the new EA Sports Football Club, which plays a part in everything you do. Every game you play, online or offline, will count towards your Clubs XP in the weekly league.

FIFA 12 FAQ
I would also like to thank TheManUtdFan for providing much of the Ultimate Team info.
Step 1: Easy miscellaneous trophies
Pick up all the quick and easy trophies at the start. These can all be obtained easily in Kick-off Mode. They include: Precision Tackler, Legendary, Don't Blink, Comeback Kid, 10 vs 11, Block Party, All My Own Work, Sweet Music and No Draw For You! See the trophy descriptions for more info.
Step 2: Career Mode
Start your Career Mode now. I would start it as an Npower League 2 team with some good players added before you start. To add good players go to Customise FIFA > Edit Teams > Change Squads/Rosters > Club Transfers. Then choose the team you are going to use in Career Mode, and add lots of good players. Play a month or 2 properly to get most of the trophies, then sim to the end of the season to get Trophy Time. You will need to aim for: Trophy Time, Procrastinator, Fully Formed, Youth Is Served and Puppet Master in Career Mode.
Step 3: Online
Now, head online and work on the Head to Head Season trophies. They are really quick and easy, so this step won't take you long. See the specific trophies for help.
Step 4: Ultimate Team
Start your Ultimate Team now. Ultimate Team is about building a good squad over a period of time, as you earn more coins. You will be able to unlock: Legends Start With Victories, Tournament Victory, I'll Have That One, Friendly, Marquee Signing, Growing Club, 'Big Cup' Squad, Pack King and We'll Need A Larger Trophy Case. Look at this thread: UT Money Making Tips, if you need some tips on how to make coins.
Step 5: Clean Up
Now you could still be missing FIFA For Life. If you are just keep playing until you get it and have fun!

Unlock all other trophies (excluding additional content trophies)
When you unlock the other 45 non-DLC trophies, the Platinum will be yours.
Obtain a successful tackle percentage of 80% with a minimum of 5 tackles in a game
To make this trophy easier switch the defending controls to Legacy, and play against a poor opponent, simply hold X to charge down an opponent on the ball and your player will make a standing tackle, repeat this until you have an 80% success rate. The tackles won stat is a bit glitchy, however, if you don't pause it usually works.
Successfully dribble the ball through a defender's legs
This trophy is very luck based and can be obtained through general play. You should get this by playing naturally, but if you still need the trophy then try pushing the ball towards a CPU opponent when close by.
Score with a bicycle kick
For this trophy, I advise you play on amateur. Also, in Game Settings, change the sliders: Change the CPU's sprint speed and acceleration to 0, and your sprint speed and acceleration to 100. Just run through, turn around and start doing kick-ups then flick the ball up, hold and tap then score.
Refer to this video (credit to Martin Lewis):
Win a game vs. the CPU on legendary difficulty against a club of the same or higher star level
This trophy can be difficult if you're not used to playing on Legendary. If this is the case, you can make it easier by using the Game Sliders in the Game Settings. Set the CPU's sprint speed and acceleration to 0 and yours to 100, this will make the trophy very simple to obtain.
Score within the first 5 minutes of a game in a game vs the CPU
If you are struggling with this in normal matches, then increase the minutes per half. If you go to 20 minutes per half then this should be extremely easy (minutes per half stay as 45 in the game but it takes 20 real life minutes per half), credit to FeXcEz-_-Sk1lLzz for the video.
Win after being down 3 goals in the 2nd half in a game vs. the CPU
You can get this at the same time as 10 vs 11. In kick-off, set up a 4 minute half game on amateur, and use a strict referee. Then in the match, score 3 own goals (put the ball in your net) in the first half and get someone sent off whilst you are losing or drawing. Then win 4-3 in the second half.
10 vs 11
Win from a draw or behind while down a man in a game vs the CPU
See Comeback Kid.
Score a goal on a volley
You should just get this through natural gameplay. Whenever the ball is in the air and hasn’t bounced; shoot but if you want to get this out of the way put the CPU sliders for sprint speed and acceleration to 0, run down the wing with the ball and cross for a player in the box, Then just shoot if it hasn't bounced. If it bounces, just keep trying.
Manually block 5 shots while defending in a single game
To block hold to Jockey, simply block 5 shots in a game.
An easy method is to make a custom Formation of 1 defender. Keep giving the ball away and use the defender to block any shots the CPU makes by Jockeying. Another easy method is to do this with 2 controllers and get the help of another person. Get them to shoot at you whilst you Jockey.
Century of Goals
Score 100 goals in FIFA 12 match play
Cumulative total, and any goal in any match counts. You’ll get the trophy when you score your 100th goal.
Thanks to Shaun-Bhoy-95 for this:
Win a Match with Manual Controls (including Tactical Defending)
To set Manual Controls go to Customize FIFA > Settings > Controls > Wireless Controller Settings in the Main Menu and use these settings:
Then play a game against a 1/2 star team controlled by the CPU, on amateur. To make this even easier, if you want use the Game Sliders to make the CPU really bad.
Then these are the original default settings, so you can change them back:
Score a goal after suffering a non-contact injury with a player
This can be obtained easily in Kick-off. Before you start a game go to Game Settings => User Game Customization and set the Injury frequency to 100 and Severity to 0 (optional). Also, it's easier to play on amateur. When the game starts, choose a striker and sprint for a bit. The player will go to the ground without being tackled. When he is back on his feet, get the ball to him and score. Refer to this video (credit to Xbox360Vault):
Score shortly after a quick throw-in
When the ball doesn’t go far from the touchline, your player will run and pick it up to take a quick throw. When this happens, try to score a goal as quickly as you can. The best method is to use 2 controllers and run the ball out with player 2. Make sure player 1 is near so he will take the quick throw-in, then take it and quickly score. See this video (credit to Martin Lewis):
EAS FC Youth Academy
Reach level 5 in the EA SPORTS Football Club
See EAS FC Starting 11.
EAS FC Starting 11
Reach level 20 in the EA SPORTS Football Club
Every game you play and other little things you do in FIFA 12 will give you XP towards your EA Football Club level. Using your Virtual Pro in Career Mode is a good way, as every accomplishment you complete gets you 10 XP. Also, buying and selling players gets you XP, promoting youth players, and listing them for loan gets you XP as well. There is a daily XP cap so this will be obtained over a space of time. If you want to increase your daily cap, press Select on the Main Menu and complete the Challenge to get extra XP. All you need to do is get to level 20 and the trophy is yours.
Complete an EA SPORTS Football Club Game Scenario Challenge
On the main menu press and you will go to the EA SPORTS Football Club menu, there will be a challenge there for you to complete and once you complete the challenge then you will get the trophy.
Path to the Cup
Win a cup game in Head to Head Seasons
Head to Head Cups are available for a certain period of time each month, to play a Cup game go to Head to Head Seasons and choose Play Cup Match. Simply win a game and the trophy is yours.

For this trophy, you need to have 15,000 coins. Search for a player you would like (better players will cost more) and purchase it through buy it now, however if you do not want to lose your coins, then you can boost it as either one of you need 15,000 or more coins. The one with the player needs to put any gold player on the market for 15,000 coins and the one with the coins needs to buy it, Then simply reverse the process. Both of you get the trophy, and you both get to keep your items.
For some money making tips, visit Rawra's thread here: LINK
Achieve a club value of 85,000,000 in FIFA 12 Ultimate Team
This is by far the most annoying and tedious trophy in the game. To get 85 million club value, you may need around 800-900 players. The best ways to get up the club value is to buy Bronze or Silver rares for 150 and 250-300 coins respectively. It is not advisable to buy too many expensive players, as they are not worth much towards your club value considering the price, which could be better spent on many bronze or silver players, 3 64 bronze rare players which cost 450 have more club value than an 88 rated player who could cost thousands. Staytrue1985 has made a spreadsheet detailing the club value of each rating card, which can be found here. After you have got the trophy, feel free to resell all the players you have so you can recoup some of the money you have spent.
'Big Cup' Squad
Enter an Ultimate Team tournament and finish a match with an overall squad rating of 85 or higher
For this trophy, the players on your starting XI and sub bench on Ultimate Team need at least a 84.5 average for it to count as 85 rating. Therefore, the total rating needs to be 1521 or higher. Some 85 rated players will be relatively cheap, some will not so you have to search around for some good prices. 84's are easy to find cheap too and you don't need all 85, so you should get a few of these. It doesn’t matter where you put the players either and some positions will have cheaper players, so feel free to put some players a bit out of place. After the squad rating is 85 or higher, go into an ultimate team tournament and finish a match, win or lose.
Open 100 packs in FIFA 12 Ultimate Team
Packs can cost from 400-15000 coins or you can buy some with real money. You need to buy 100 packs so the cheapest packs are advisable. However, packs are not the best deal unless you get insane luck and pull a player worth thousands, so it is best to get this trophy after the other Ultimate Team ones so you do not waste your money. You should also sell any unwanted items through trading so you can get more money to buy packs. Packs opened on the web app do not count towards this total. Once you have opened 100 packs (there is no way to track this), the trophy will unlock.

We'll need a larger trophy case
Win your 10th trophy in FIFA 12 Ultimate Team
Once you've won 10 tournaments, you'll get this trophy. Single tournaments are easier to win rather than online tournaments. Also, you can just select the tournaments on lower difficulties if you want. However, you get more coins for winning online tournaments. It's also worth noting that you can win the same one ten times.
Win the league title in any league in Career Mode
Win any league in Career Mode to earn this trophy. If you want to make it quick and easy, before you start Career Mode add good players to a lower rated team, like one in the Npower League 2 for example. To add good players go to Customise FIFA > Edit Teams > Change Squads/Rosters > Club Transfers, then choose the team you are going to use in Career Mode and add all the best players. On the setup, make sure you change the squads to "Custom" then sim the whole season and you should win the league.
Sign a player on Deadline Day in the transfer window in Career Mode
You can get this trophy by having the deal almost done, stalling then on the final day of the transfer window go to transfers then to transfer negotiations and click to accept the player. However, you can just start the process of buying a player on deadline day as it goes really slow to give you a chance of making last minute deals. Deadline Day is the last day of the Transfer Window.
Have three players be in full form at the same time on your club in Career Mode
Your 1st choice GK is pretty much always on top form, if you are keeping clean sheets. So make sure 2 other players are playing regularly. Probably best if you choose 2 strikers, then score a few goals with them. Once 3 players in your club are fully formed, you’ll get the trophy.
Sign a player better than anyone else on your club during the transfer window
In your Career Mode, look at your current squad, and find your overall best player. Now you need to sign a player with a better overall than him. This trophy is easier with lower rated teams, because, for example, at Barcelona you would have to find a better player than Messi. However, if you play as a rich team, you can just bid lots of money for a really good player. You can also get this by loaning a better player.
Youth is Served
Sign a player to your youth squad in Career Mode
First you need to sign a scout. Then send him somewhere, looking for players. He will send you a monthly scout report. If you like one of the players that he recommends, then sign them to the youth squad. Then you'll unlock this trophy also.
Talk to the Press in Career Mode
When you are simming to advance, you will sometimes see red days on the calendar. Stop simming and press , you will now get to say something to the press. Once you've said something, you'll get the trophy. Refer to this video (credit to FeXcEz-_-Sk1lLzz):
Set up some Custom Audio in FIFA 12
You need to have some music saved on your PS3 for this. If you have a CD just put that into your PS3, then choose any song to copy onto the PS3, go to Customize FIFA 12 => My Music and Chants then add a song to any of the options and you'll get the trophy. Follow this video (credit to FeXcEz-_-Sk1lLzz):
Play 50 Matches with your Virtual Pro
Once you’ve finished your 50th match with your Virtual Pro, you will earn this trophy. NOTE: Your Virtual Pro must play the whole game. So remember, when playing online if you don’t finish the match (you or your opponent disconnects), then it won’t count either.
FIFA for Life
Spend 50 hours on the pitch
Just play the game for this trophy. Time counts in any game mode EXCEPT Ultimate Team, but you have to be on the pitch (playing a game).
Happy 20th EA SPORTS!
Score 20 match goals in FIFA 12 to celebrate 20 years of EA SPORTS!
See Century of Goals.
No Draw for You!
Score a 90th minute winner in a game vs. the CPU
For this trophy, the match needs to be level. Then in the 90th minute (or later) you have to score and then win the game. It's best if you play as a good team vs a bad team on amateur. Also, set all the relevant CPU sliders to 0, then during the match, just pass the ball around for 90 minutes. Then try to score and win 1-0, and you'll get the trophy.
How Great is that?
Find a team of the week player in an Ultimate Team pack
Every week there is a Team of the Week, depending on form players in real life. They are pretty much always gold cards so you will find these players in gold packs. The TotW players are black cards, and their stats are slightly better than the other version of them. You have to get one in a pack you open to earn this trophy.
Play 100 matches with any player in FIFA 12 Ultimate Team
When you have a good player that you are always going to have in your team, just keep playing matches with that team. Work on other UT trophies and eventually you'll earn this trophy too! You can see how many games your player has played by going: Stats > Player Stats. This also shows games played for other clubs though.
