FUT Champions Explained


FUT Champions is an online game mode that brings you the best head-to-head competition in the FIFA Ultimate Team. The most popular mode tests your skill across two stages of competition: the Play-Offs and the Finals.

The Champions Play-Offs are the first stage of the overall competition. You must join the required number of Champions Qualification Points to play it. The only way to do it is by playing Rivals and FUT Champions itself.

There is a limited number of Play-Off entries per FUT Season. This limit resets with the start of each new season, which usually occurs every six weeks.

The qualification for the FUT Champions Finals is made by earning enough points in the Play-Offs. You can play up to ten matches, and as soon as you reach the qualification, you earn a token that you can use when you wish.

The Finals are the second stage of FUT Champions. Each campaign is open for 72 hours, from Friday to Monday, and you can play up to twenty matches against other qualified players.

As in the Play-Offs, you get four points for each win and one for each loss. The more points you get, the highest you will rank (there are ten ranks), and the better your rewards.

Based on how many points you make on your Play-Offs and Finals, you receive rewards at the end of your campaign. The rewards can be packs, FUT coins, and FUT Champions Player Picks.

It depends. FUT Champions Qualification Points and Finals Token carry over for the next Season. However, in the opposite direction, unused Entries and Play-off Progression do not carry over for the next Season.
The unused FUT Champions Qualification Points will carry over to the new season. It means that you can, for example, bring your 1,500 points and play a few Rivals matches in the new season to earn the remaining 500 points needed, reaching this way the required 2,000 points.
If you cannot complete the Play-Offs matches until the end of the season, you will lose your progress but not your qualification. In other words, current points and completed matches will be reset, and you will have free access to the competition in the new season.
Yes, each Champions campaign is a different competition if played on a different platform.
Yes. When you start the Play-Offs, you are competing for the first set of rewards and a chance to qualify for the Finals, where you can further increase your rewards. One of the goals of introducing the Play-Offs and Finals was to rebalance the rewards across both competition stages while lowering the overall match requirements.
You’ll get rewards once you finish the available amount of matches (maximum of 9) in the competition. You can also choose to end your current Play-Offs event at any point, even before completing all your matches, allowing you to collect the available rewards immediately. If you don’t finish all your Play-Off matches before a FUT Season ends, you’ll automatically get whatever rewards you have earned from the matches that you did complete.

You can check your progression in-game and see the requirements and rewards for each Rank.
Play-Off and Finals Champions Rewards are based on your total points in each stage of the competition: +4 for each win; +1 for each loss.
In the Play-Offs, the rewards are delivered as soon as you finish your campaign. You can also decide to skip ahead of your last matches in case you have already earned enough points to qualify for the Finals. In that case, you will discard the chance to reach better rewards.

In the Finals, where you finish will decide your additional rewards. You can claim your rewards if you finish all your matches in the Finals. If you still have matches to be played, your rewards will be granted at the end of the competition (Monday morning), based on where you finished.
The Champions Finals rewards are not delivered before the end of the round unless you have finished all your matches.
Yes. Seeing and opening your rewards through the Web and Companion Apps is possible.
No. You can open the packs you receive as Champions rewards at any time. They don’t expire. You don’t have to claim your rewards before the next round starts. They will be waiting for you as soon as you open FUT on your console next time.

If you want, you can save them to open when better items are in packs, as is the case of the Team of the Year. However, remember that Player Picks will always be from the week you have won them.
Depending on your final Rank in the Champions Finals, the Players within the Player Pick will vary, but they will always be from the active TOTW.
For any of the two stages, Play-Offs and Finals, you need eight points to rank, which you can make in just two matches (if you win both) or a maximum of eight matches (if you lose them all). If you don’t reach that score, you will not receive any reward for that week. It’s like you haven’t played at all.
All Champions Matches are played in the FUT Champions Stadium. Any customizations you have applied to your Club will be visible to your opponent when you are the home team, except for pitch line customization.
It is not possible. That feature is not available in this game mode.
To prevent you from recognizing your opponent, EA doesn’t allow you to see which kit he is using. For the same reason, you will not see his real name either.
FIFA 23 FUT Champions is based on the number of wins and losses a player reaches in each round. Every match must have a winner and a loser, even if it is necessary to take penalties.
Matchmaking in FIFA 23 FUT Champions Play-Offs and Finals is based on two things:

  • Your location.
    It determines which dedicated FIFA Game Data Center location will be used for your match.
  • Your current Form in Play-Offs or Finals.
    It means you’ll be matched with players with a similar Form. Form does not carry over between the two competitions. Your Form is 0 whenever you are first starting a Play-Offs or Finals.
The result is that players who are better than average in the FUT Champions (already a very skilled group of players) will quickly boost their Form. The higher their Form gets, the more challenging the competition becomes. Only the best of the best can consistently beat players with high Form.

The second key piece to matchmaking is location. Players are matched based on location and proximity to EA’s dedicated game servers to ensure quality matches.
Your Form in FUT Champions Play-Offs and Finals (respectively) is a record of all the matches you have played in the current competition. You start every competition with your Form at 0, which changes based on your results.

Here’s an example. Say the results of your first five games of a Play-Offs run were W/L/L/W/W. Your Form after those five matches would end up at +1. That’s because you gain +1 for each win and lose -1 for each.

Before your first match, your Form is at 0. You won the first match, so you earn 1. Form now at +1. You lost the second match, so you lose 1. Form now at 0. You lost the third match, so you lose another 1. Form now at -1. You win the fourth match, so you earn 1. Form now at 0 again. You win the fifth match, so you earn 1 more. Form now at +1 again. That means going into your sixth match; your current Form would be +1.

In FUT Champions Play-Offs, your Form can be as low as -8 and as high as +8. In FUT Champions Finals, your Form can be as low as -15 and as high as +15.
Yes. Starting in FIFA 23, you can play FUT Champions with players from the same generation if you have crossplay enabled on your account.
