    The problem of the black bars is because fifa 15 only supports 16:9 displays.

    The only solution I´ve found is to create a custom resolution with a 16:9 aspect ratio. It is a temporal fix until EA fixes it.

    This method has been tested on a 1680x1050 display but it should work on other aspect ratios like 4:3 or 8:5:

    AMD/ATI users:

    1- Download CRU software http://www.monitortests.com/cru-1.1.2.zip
    2- Open it with Admin privileges
    3- You have to calculate the right horizontal resolution to meet the 16:9 aspect ratio:

    For example: My monitor´s native resolution is 1680x1050, so we need to keep the vertical res. to avoid image distorsion. That´s to say, we have to create a HHHH x 1050 resolution that suits the 16:9 aspect ratio.
    To calculate the HHHH value we need to know the ratio 16/9=1,777777777777778.
    And the HHHH value can be calculated this way: HHHH= 1050 x 1,777777777777778 = 1866

    1866 is our horizontal resolution to meet the 16:9 aspect ratio.

    4- Go to CRU select your native resolution and hit Add

    Then select Automatic -LCD standard on Timing, change the horizontal res to 1866 and put the refresh rate to 60 Hz and hit ok.

    Again hit ok

    and restart your PC.

    5- After restarting your PC, launch the demo, go to Game Settings and select the new created resolution and that´s all

    For Nvidia users

    You can create a custom resolution from the Nvidia control panel. You can folow this to create it http://screenarchery.wikia.com/wiki...to_achieve_3840x2160_resolution_–_NVIDIA_only

    The values are the same as for the AMD users.

    Can this be used for downsampling ?

    It's pretty lame of EA to not support 16:10 resolutions in the year that they upgrade to the new improved engine. I've always been able to play the previous FIFA games fullscreen 1920x1200. Similarly, Konami have never bothered to support 16:10 resolutions either for Pro Evo Soccer, despite the fact that modders seem to be able to do it very easily.

    It's just sheer laziness IMO.
