Code of Conduct


FIFA My Community Code of Conduct

Forum Code of Conduct

First of all, welcome to our forums! We hope that you’ll find them enjoyable, and that you’ll have many fruitful discussions on here. Before you start posting (or if you’ve been posting for a while but feel like you need to refresh the basics), please take a moment to read through our rules of conduct, which are applicable to all forums on

The FTC forums are safe online spaces for holding civil, lively discussion. Please do not ever post with the sole purpose and intention of upsetting other forum users. Negative comments and minority opinions are absolutely welcome, but forum users are expected to be able to substantiate their position without resorting to name-calling and offensive language.

By registering or logging into our forums, you are agreeing to the rules listed below and the FIFA terms of service found here Terms of service - FIFA Training Centre.


  • Always treat others with kindness and respect, even if you don’t agree with them.
  • Stay on topic, don’t intentionally derail threads, don’t troll, don’t spam.
  • Use appropriate language.
  • Do not intentionally insult or offend others.
  • We don’t tolerate hate speech, intimidation, harassment, sexual, racial or ethnic slurs, or discrimination.


  • Posting your own as well as other people’s personally identifiable information (i.e. name, address, email, phone number, place of work, etc.)
  • Posting links to phishing sites, malware or spyware
  • Impersonating forum moderators or other users
  • Spamming, bashing, flaming or trolling
  • Any kind of encouragement towards taking drugs or drinking alcohol
  • Creating multiple accounts
  • Posting something that is knowingly false
  • Thread bumping, hijacking or posting comments that are unrelated to the original topic and make it difficult for others to follow the discussion
  • Posting pornography, inappropriate or offensive content, warez, unreleased game content, and things that are generally considered not suitable for work
  • Linking to cracks, key generators, pirated content and promoting piracy overall. However, discussions about piracy are generally acceptable
  • Threats of violence, harassment or privacy breach – even as a joke
  • Using a third party’s intellectual property (full or partial scans of articles, books, full transcriptions of articles, etc.) unless you have permission to do so
  • Selling (including real-life or in-game trading), advertising, referrals, links to other stores, auctioning - unless this applies to giveaways
  • Use of language that is abusive, vulgar, hateful, defamatory, obscene, profane, threatening, privacy-invasive or law-violating
  • Encouraging anyone else to break these rules
  • Taking any other actions that are deemed inappropriate by FIFA at our sole discretion
  • Political discussions not related to a video game are not permitted. Threads created exclusively to talk about politics will be locked. Users who ignore this rule repeatedly will be met with moderation


  • If you see a person breaking the rules, don’t attempt to moderate – please go to Contact - FIFA Training Centre to file a report, and a FIFA Community Moderator will deal with the post.
  • If you break any of the above rules, you will get a warning from FIFA Staff or FIFA Community Moderators. Should you proceed to break any of the rules again, you will be banned from posting on the forum. The only exception to issuing a ban without giving a warning are situations in which a drastic disrespect of the rules occurs – in such cases we will make sure that we inform you of the reasons behind our decision. Depending on the gravity of your misdemeanours, you might be banned for a minimum of one week. If you repeatedly break forum rules despite warnings and previous bans, or if your misdemeanours are extremely serious, you may be permanently banned from posting on the forums. If your offence violates the law, your account may be suspended, and the relevant authorities may be notified of your misconduct.
  • All decisions with regard to post moderation (edits and deleting) and user warnings are made by FIFA Staff or FIFA Community Moderators, whereas thread-locking and temporary and permanent bans are made by FIFA Staff. In both cases they are final and not subject to discussion. Constructive criticism and suggestions are welcome provided they are directed to the forum moderators and not disputed within the forums.
  • We don’t warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any posts published on the forums.
  • We reserve the right to edit or delete any post that we feel breaks any of the rules stated within this Code of Conduct.
  • If you are confused about any particular action taken that involves you, please contact us.
  • Official communication with any member of FIFA Staff should be considered as valid as correspondence with all moderating authorities. Abusive and/or aggressive attitude towards GOG Staff may constitute grounds for further penalties.

These rules are subject to change at any time, but we will try and inform you via the forums when they do.
