And while some of those considerations don't exactly translate to EA's football simulator, FIFA, it still proves true that good preparation is the building block of success.
And with FIFA 22 weeks away and millions waiting to get started with their FUT teams, the developers are giving you an opportunity to start building that team before the game's 1st October release date through FUT 21 Pre-Season.
Coming in the shape of daily squad building challenges (SBCs) and Objectives, players will be able to earn a host of rewards that will be waiting for them when they first launch FIFA 22.
If you want to get involved, here is everything you need to know.
