The Sims 4 Discover University: Soccer Team Player Guide

Presented by EA Game Changers

The Sims 4 Discover University adds two brand new After School Activities. These are only accessible once your Sim has enrolled at either Foxbury Institute or the University of Britechester.

As with any career, your Sim can join the Soccer Team career simply by sitting down at a laptop, computer, using their cell phone or by the career tab on the user interface. You will then be given the option to choose which of the two new careers you would like your Sim to join. You can also click on the Foxbury Arena and Join a Sports Team.

Note: Each level of the Soccer Team Career has a daily task that is required to be completed every day to help your Sim advance to the next promotion. These tasks vary from day to day.

Future Opportunities

Being a part of the starting line up on the University Soccer Team also opens up the Professional Athlete branch of the Athlete Career for your Sims. This higher starting point means your Sims can jump straight into this profession. Your Sim will also receive a higher hourly rate, easier promotion opportunities and extra vacation days.

Soccer Games

Every Friday the Foxbury Arena will host the weekly Soccer game. These start at 6 pm and tickets are available to purchase at the start of the match from the arena. Tickets cost $45 and any Sim can attend.

Soccer Match Schedule

Foxbury Institute Arena – Friday at 6 pm

Ubrite Arena – Saturday at 6 pm

Sims that are due to play in the Soccer match will attend the match as if they were attending a shift at work and you can control how they perform by clicking on the two little Sims displayed on your Sim at the bottom of the user interface.

Every now and then you may receive a pop up to help influence an aspect of the match i.e – Whether a teammate should make a pass to your Sim or to another Sim.

Once the game is over you will be told how the match ended in the Notification Wall.

Whether you are Team Foxbury or Team UBrite head on down to the Arena and cheer for your favourite team!

    • Open your relationships tab on the bottom right. Hover over sims and it will tell you if they are teammates or not. If none show up, send your sim to a game first and see if the show up when your sim comes home. You’ll have to chat with them a lot until they are no longer acquaintances and have been bumped up to friend status.

    • Do you have to take the phone call and drop out and join the professional athlete career to get the signing bonus or can you get it just from finishing university while on the team?

  • Don’t know if I’m being stupid but how do I find the arena? It came up with a notification saying I could go watch a match but can’t find the actual arena…

    • You’re not. It’s kinda hidden away if you don’t know where to look. On the Foxbury side it’s near where the dorms are. If your Sim is walking out of the dorm building on your right, the stadium will be there to the right.
      The little area where students can swim is behind it as well if that helps.

    • Go to a common building, ie the library at whatever university you are at, and once there, scroll out and hover over the surrounding buildings. You can click on different ones that way

  • how do you know who’s a teammate to try to befriend? i’ve talked to a few sims in uniforms after practice and some in the shirts that look like soccer jersey’s and it doesn’t seem to do anything

    • You’ll gain the ability after being promoted, I think it’s at lv2 Bench Warmer? To study: on a computer, go to Web and it should be under that menu (though it didn’t appear for me once or twice, think it’s a bit buggy). To discuss: click on a teammate sim and it’s under Friendly options.

      • I think it’s a big they haven’t fixed. Ever since I got the pack, my whole game has been bugging out. Losing homework, textbooks disappearing, my sim randomly resets and anything she had disappears. But studying on the computer doesn’t work because the option doesn’t show up, so just talk to the teammates.

  • Hi, just got The uni pack and because I just wanted to get straight into it I enabled cheats and enrolled myself in Britechester Uni.
    I want my sim to join a sports team so when I go the building which allows to me “Join a Sports Team” it only shows part time jobs? (Babysitter,Barista etc..)
    How do I *navigate* the pack, how to I properly use it

    • It leads you to the job tab because being on a sports team is technically a ‘job’, meaning you can’t have a part-time job if you’re on the sports team. Just scroll down on the screen that pops up when you click “join sports team” and it should be there, otherwise click on the little symbols at the top of the pop-up and the sports teams should be somewhere in there.
