With this training type all players in your squad recieve training in the set pieces skill, whether or not they played a game that week. Regardless of age this training takes about 2.2 weeks for a player to raise a level.

Set pieces training was previously considered to be one of the most lucrative training types in the game. It is trained by only 1% of all hattrickers. Note that shooting also trains set pieces (as well as scoring), but at a much slower rate.


  • Hugely profitable when done well
  • Great return on investment, the more you invest, the more you get
  • Train up to 22 players
  • Training regardless of age
  • Freedom of formation
  • Increase the wages of your players only a little


  • Massive start-up costs to be done effectively (approx 30 million EUR)
  • Compared to "normal" training types, it requires more transfers and therefore more team spirit hits will occur
  • Players lose form when not playing
  • Players will often need to be listed several times before selling
  • There is only a finite number of Set Piece players needed, so this type can only support a limited number of trainers (around 1%)
