FIFA 11 ReGens

WTF is a ReGen?

In FIFA 11 they have removed the youth scouting system from the career mode entirely and switched to a system of regenerating retired players.

Basically when a player retires they will be reincarnated in the form of a youth player with a pseudo-random name but with the identical attributes of the retired player. You can spot them in the transfer screen because they do not have a player picture.

If you have difficulty finding a certian player it may be because they have already been traded to another team. To help with finding them you should search for young players with their position / nationality and then check that their weight matches.


  • Must retire within the first 5 seasons of CM. Because a regen starts young (<18) they need time to fully develop to the potential of the player they are based on.
  • Have a theoretical potential overall of 75+, because there is not point of buying a regen’d version of Paul Crichton

This post by rusayne on the EA forums better explains and discusses how regens work so have a look if you want more information.

FIFA 11 Best Young Players

Until I have time to properly investigate how the FIFA 11 manager mode works here is some raw player data extracted from the FIFA database. The potentials are to be used as a rough guide to player growth but may be some way off. Generally the younger players on this list are more likely to reach their potential than those 23+. These values were taken from the PC database but should also be accurate for finding the best players on xbox360 and ps3. As always, feel free to leave a comment if you find any awesome new players or good bargains.
