Q: What is FIFA 16 Ultimate Team Draft?
A: FIFA 16 Ultimate Team Draft is a brand new mode inside FUT 16. Now you have other ways to play Ultimate Team besides single matches, tournaments and seasons. This new mode will test your team building skills as you pick the best fit for each position from a five-player draw. Draft a squad and challenge opponents in a series of up to four matches to win big rewards for your club.

Q: When FIFA 16 Ultimate Team Draft will be available ?
A: Since the first day.

Q: Who are my opponents in FUT 16 Draft ?
A: You will play against other FUT Draft teams.

Q: Is it possible to play FIFA 16 Ultimate Team Draft on line ?
A: Yes. This mode is available single player and on line.

Q: Is play-a-friend available in FIFA 16 Ultimate Team Draft ?
A: No, it is not.

Q: How do I enter in Draft mode ?
A: Easy. Inside your FUT mode, go to ‘on line’ or ‘single player’, and then select ‘draft’.

Q: How do I start playing FIFA 16 Ultimate Team Draft ?
A: To start playing Draft mode you first need to choose your formation, pick a captain, build your team and select a manager.

Q: Can I choose the match difficulty ?
A: Yes. You can choose the match difficulty in single player matches. It will affect the amount of coins received per game but not the winning rewards.

Q: Can I choose any formation ?
A: No. Just like it happens with the players, there is a random selection of five formations to pick. Start your FUT Draft by choosing the one you like most. Choose wisely: the formation you pick will remain as your default formation throughout the series of matches.

Q: Can I change the formation ?
A: No. You can only change the formation after you loose or start over again.

Q: Why do I have to pick a captain ?
A: The captain is the first player you need to choose to your FUT 16 Draft squad. Usually, he is the best player of your team. The five-player draw you will have to pick to the other positions are based in this choice.

Q: How do I build the rest of my squad ?
A: From there, fill out the rest of your 23-man squad by picking players for each position from a random draw of five players. You’ll be faced with interesting team building challenges: do you grab the best highest rated player in that position or focus on maximizing team Chemistry? Try different combinations to see what works best for you. After selecting your starting XI, Bench, and Reserves you can then move players around to improve your Chemistry rating.

Q: Can I change or sell my players ?
A: No. In fact, these players are not yours. There is no market in Draft mode. You pick your squad and you need to keep with them until you have a fresh start.

Q: It’s too boring to pick the 23 players from 100+ players the game shows to us. What can I do about it ?
A: Just look to the bottom of your screen. There is a button to auto-complete your squad.

Q: The random draw of five players is exclusively to NIF players ?
A: No. Any FUT player may show up in the draft, including Legends (only on Xbox) and the special in-forms. With that kind of variety, the FUT Draft is a great opportunity for all gamers to try some of the best players in the game.

Q: Previous IFs can appear in FIFA 16 Ultimate Team Draft ?
A: Yes, not just during their current week. For example: TOTY players can show up after TOTY is over.

Q: Can I keep with the Draft players to use in tournaments and seasons ?
A: No. You can use them only while you are winning and at most four matches. Then, you will have to pick a new squad to play FUT 16 Draft. Draft players can only be used in Draft mode. However, you can use the rewards you win in this mode to improve your original FUT squad.

Q: Why do I need to choose a manager ?
A: Don’t forget that you are playing Ultimate Team mode. A Manger with the right nationality or league links will help to improve your team’s chemistry.

Q: There is a fee to play FUT 16 Draft ?
A: Yes, there is. But it is not in real currency. Every time you play this mode you need to pay 15,000 coins or 300 FIFA Points. It may looks a lot but it is not because, even when you loose the first match, you’ll still receive a reward equal to the entrance fee.

Q: There is any way to avoid to pay the fee ?
A: Yes, there is. Just like the tokens you can find in previous FUT’s to redeem coins and packs, in FIFA 16 you can have the luck of pulling from a pack a token to redeem a FUT Draft entrance for free.

Q: What are the rewards ?
A: Usually you get a pack that you can use in your original FUT squad.

Q: How many matches I need to play to get a reward ?
A: Once you’re ready, it’s time to take your squad to the pitch and challenge opponents to compete in a four-match series. You can compete in single player or on line against opponents across the globe. As you progress, you’ll earn better rewards, including coins, packs, and more. Win four matches in a row to earn the best rewards possible. When you are defeated before the fourth match, you also get a reward but not as big. Each time you win, the potential rewards increase.

Q: What happens after I win four matches ?
A: The same of when you are knocked out: you claim your prize and then start all over again, building a new squad and going on a new FUT 16 Draft four matches season.

Q: Why people love this mode ?
A: Probably because they are free to try new players and new cards.

    waht is better .. to choose a GK rated 80 with 10 chemistry or rated 86 with 4 chemistry ?

  2. Anthony Bennett

    When I first seen this I thought great,one off payment and into the draft.But no,yet another EA tactic to #1 get more money from you..#2 To attempt to gain control of the illegal coin trade..A one off payment would have been sufficient for this section of the game,pure and utter greed from EA (why am I surprised).

  3. Am i able to play FUT draft against a friend on the same console? So we both have a chance to choose our teams and play offline against one another? EA seem to market everything as online forgetting that many people do still like to play with someone on the same console…?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      No, you can’t. But both can play Draft mode in the same team against the machine.

  4. is this game mode available in the android mobile version?and will online feature be available on the same if fut draft is there?

  5. Hey Rodrigo,

    In FIFA I almost always only play career mode and therefore have no Ultimate Team coins. Does this mean that I won’t be able to play Draft in Fifa 16 or is there a special draft mode where there’s no fee but no rewards?

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      You probably will receive a draft invitation in the starter/welcome back packs. In that way you will play Draft and receive packs according to your performance. Sell them to play Draft again.

  6. Hi Rodrigo,
    it seems that these packs will contain ((trade-able)) cards. please confirm 🙂
    moreover, the online tournaments will have trade-able prizes or still disappointing ?!!

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      It is not always the same reward, so it is not possible to know. Usually, when you win four matches in a row, you receive something like a Mega Pack and a Rare Gold Pack.

  7. If you have 15k stored in your club can u keel using that to play fut draft and u will always get it back

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Not exactly. You receive 15k but not in coins. They give you packs that worth 15k. It is not the same thing.

  8. Hakimi Roslan

    BUt may i ask what is a token in fifa.Do you need to pay real money to get a token like fifa points?

    1. You get it from pcks nd you can buy them with game moneyor fifa points. You use rel money to get fif points but you can buy packs with FUT coins

  9. I think I’m fed up with EA basing everything on points so people are reward from spending physical money.

    I would love some sort of FUT where you and your opponents have teams based purely on your own success in game, on not how much you want to invest in the game, but those days are gone unfortunately.

    Maybe they’ll have the transfer marker fixed to stop exploiters, but I’m sure they’ll only fix it in a way that leads to more EA profit.

    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      To us, it is probably the most important thing: to fix the transfer market to stop exploiters.

  10. Hi Rodrigo,

    What about reward coins, can they be used in normal FUT? I understand that is another way to earn coins for FUT? If that the way how it works seems to be pointless to buy coins? Another question is : Do i need to pay entry fee every 4 matchesin draft or it is once?



    1. Rodrigo Lopes (Admin)

      Hi Tomas. Thank you for your questions. They are important because they will help other gamers.
      1) Yes, the coins and items you receive in FUT Draft can be used in your original FUT squad. You pay with coins or FP and you receive packs (most of the times).
      2) Yes, you need to pay for every matches series.
