Tournaments were a very popular game mode of FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT). There were two categories: the featured ones, available for a limited time; and the fixed ones, available permanently in Ultimate Team. There were also two different types: single player (against the machine) and online (against other real players).

Each one of these FIFA tournaments had a specific duration, specific requirements for entry (players have to tweak their squads to be eligible to enter) and different rewards. In single-player mode, they also had different difficulty levels.
