Active Touch in FIFA 19 is a brand new gameplay system that allows you to pull off some incredible moves without the need to memorize some of the skill moves that have been in FIFA for quite some time.  The new system is all centered around clicking in the Right Thumbstick when you have possession of the ball or when you are about to receive a pass.

With the new Active Touch system you can click in the right stick to flip the ball up and start juggling or you can use to do a unique first touch where any number of things can happen depending on the player’s rating.  A number of different right stick flicks can create amazing results when combined with the Right Stick Press as well as left thumbstick for directional movement.
