Setting the line-up for your matches is one of your mayor tasks. The right formation with the right players is what decides over the outcome of your matches.

To set the formation and line-up for upcoming matches, you can also use the top menu bar. For a match that is further in the future you can set the line-up from the "All fixtures" menu.



Hint:
Make sure to set your line-ups early! You can always change and fine tune it at a later time. The line-up has to be saved a certain time before a match begins, for example, for a league match no changes can be done in the last 60 minutes before the match begins.
