Since it’s a mini-event therefore there are no major squad and OVR restrictions. You can play the event and claim Pelé with your main team. Additionally, the matches are not that hard and it is expected that players can complete them without much hassle. If you have a high OVR squad, in most of the matches, you can just rely on your team winning the matches themselves on autoplay.
As the event is focused more on paying homage to the sporting greatness of Pelé, and not paying attention to the game’s competitive side, the matches are fairly easy and new players should be able to complete them as well.
Pelé, no matter which version you opt for is untradable meaning you won’t be able to trade or buy him for coins in the market. Perhaps that is only fitting as not at all things can’t be bought and there definitely are things that money can’t buy.
FIFA Mobile 23 Obrigado Pelé Tips and Tricks
If you are entirely new to the game, joining just a few weeks or months ago, then you may face some or little difficulty in the matches. Nevertheless, here are some of the bonus tips and tricks to ease your way into getting Pelé in FIFA Mobile 23.
- Finesse shot spam often makes everything way easier than cross-spamming so just do it!
- The Right-Wing is the most important position in all formations and for all the chapters. Have a proper fast right-winger who can also dribble well.
- The best way to win quickly: play a couple of passes around the right baseline and dribble the last defender so RW can finesse. It’s either a goal, corner, or rebound for the striker.
- For taking penalties, always aim at the right upper corner as powerfully as you can by swiping fast.
- Again, not every goal is going to come from your right wing. You have other tools in your box, don’t be afraid to use them.
Remember you are playing against the AI not another human so the gameplay becomes predictable gradually. So don’t be afraid to forfeit if you give up a goal at some point, ever!
In the end, the event comes down to celebrating the marvelous football career of Pelé than focusing on tactics and winning matches. The current generation of Football fans who are unknown of his greatness and adjudge Messi and Cristiano among the game’s all-time greats, everything anyone has ever done, Pelé did it first.
Pelé is the only player to win the FIFA World Cup a record three times, score a record number of 1283 goals, and be declared a National Treasure by the Brazilian President, to prevent him from leaving Brazil for European clubs. So relive his iconic moments throughout the event and claim the game’s undisputed king, Edson Arantes do Nascimento, or as he was lovingly called, Pelé.

what is the ideal pele card to get?
Preferably go for the CAM card, as CF is a rare position in everyday formations and Pele just might be too short for a decent ST given his height, given there are always better STs available in the market.
Can I go for a ST card if I already got a strong CAM?
Sure its your call, you can opt for his ST Card, if you already possess someone like Zidane or Messi in the CAM role.
What are some better ST’s than Pele? I’m not sure which one to get.
And could I play Pele in CAM/RW position but with his ST card?
If you lose the match once is the chance of getting pele gone?
Nopes, you get multiple retries to finish the match if you fail to complete it in one go.
