    The fastest way to get this achievement is to start a career as a player only with your VP pick play as your VP only and try to get your player sent off as quick as you can when he gets sent off it will sim the rest of the match but you will get credit for a game played.

    A few tips.

    1 You keep getting sent off so they will bench you in the end the better the team the quicker this will happen so pick a low leauge team.

    2 Difficulty dosent matter so do it on the lowest because you seem to get more games.Position also dosent matter.

    3 When you first start a career for this copy and save this 10-15 times so you have 10-15 different saves when you get benched just swap to a new one.

    General tips
    It seems to be easier with a keeper but its up to you.
    When you get sent off you will not be able to play the next game so instead of advanceing to the next game go to your calender and sim to the day before the next match you will be able to play this will save you some time.

    this aint really a solution just a method of keeping track of how many games you have played with your pro

    if you disconnect the internet/wifi cable from the back of the machine before you fire up the game then when you get to the main menu of the game use the trigger buttons to scroll through the stats pages on the main menu and you will come across games played/ goals scored etc for your pro
    you will have to add this number to the number of online games you have played with the pro.


    the number is offline games with your pro the reason i know this is that this number differs from the number of total games under profile manager.
    games played is when ever the pro is used in a match wether he starts or is subbed it will still count as a appearance

    i hope this helps

    @flosta32 on my screen the number didnt advance for any games played with out my pro so i dont know what happened on yours!?

    i have tried to be as accurate as possible with regards to trying help people work out how many game they have played with their PRO

    AccelerettoThis is a really poor solution tbh, it doesn't even tell you if bringing him on as a sub counts or anything

    Rheinadlerchecked again and the counter still goes up by one, regardless of pro participation or not. i dont know whats up with that. maybe it's just EA being EA. anyway, now that your solution adresses this issue, i changed my vote to thumbs up. i mean, even if it does show all offline games, as long as all the achievement hunters only play with their pro until this unlocks, this is still very helpful.

    @Acceleretto - that's not a valid argument. he clearly mentions that his post is a mere adjustment to the other solutions on how to keep track of your games. if you had checked the other solutions, you would know that playing your VP as a sub does NOT count. i would, however, strongly recommend the get-sent-off method, unless your overly obsessed about your pro's stats. i got the achievement in one afternoon that way.

    Edit your pro to play for the various teams when going for the following achievements:

    FIFA 11Home & AwayThe Home & Away achievement in FIFA 11 worth 265 pointsPlay & win in every Stadium

    FIFA 11Around the WorldThe Around the World achievement in FIFA 11 worth 105 pointsPlay a match with a team from every league


    Note that games will still count if you are playing clubs and your opponents quit out, or you play as "Any".

    If you're losing badly in a career mode game then get your pro sent off to save wasting time, as you never know the computer might give your team a result if you're lucky! You will be banned for one game as a result - sim this game as it won't count towards your achievement obviously!

    Also always get yourself sent off in friendlies as long as you're a highly enough rated player as you won't get dropped for this. These games too will also count towards the 500; I've heard from people that this achievement is glitched (although that may only be on the PS3), but it pinged for me at exactly 500.

    Over the course of this you will have played between 65 and 70 hours on the park, if you are using the shortest timed games (4 minutes e/w), so you will also have collected:

    FIFA 11Secret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in FIFA 11 worth 209 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement


    Another suggestion would be to alter the position of your pro in the "virtual pro" area of the game's main menu between defender, midfielder and forward to get various accomplishments, making it quicker to receive:

    Playing through the games legitimately will also at some point give you this achievement if you are reasonably good at the game:
