How Much Is OT In Fifa?

In FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association), “OT” typically stands for “overtime” or “extra time.” Extra time is an additional period of play that may be added to a match if the score is tied at the end of regulation time (90 minutes) in knockout stages of certain FIFA-sanctioned tournaments, such as the FIFA World Cup or continental championships like the UEFA European Championship or Copa América.

The duration of overtime in FIFA-sanctioned tournaments varies depending on the competition’s rules. Traditionally, overtime consists of two 15-minute periods (30 minutes total), played in full, regardless of whether a goal is scored. If the score remains tied at the end of extra time, the match may proceed to a penalty shootout to determine the winner.

During FIFA video games, such as the FIFA series by EA Sports, overtime (OT) and penalty shootouts are simulated in accordance with the rules and format of real-life soccer competitions. In FIFA video games, players may have the option to enable or disable extra time and penalties in certain game modes or settings, allowing them to customize the match experience based on their preferences. The duration of overtime and the format of penalty shootouts in FIFA video games typically mirror real-life FIFA tournaments.
