FIFA 23 FUT Champions guide

FUT Champions is FIFA 23’s most competitive Ultimate Team mode as top players look to battle it out for the game’s most valuable prizes. Here’s a breakdown of the FIFA 23 FUT Champs format and the rewards up for grabs.

Players looking to build the best FIFA 23 Ultimate Team squads will want to test their skills by exploring the FUT Champions mode.

This year, players can earn more rewards than ever by playing Squad Battles, FUT Moments, and Division Rivals. However, the best packs await those brave enough to take on FUT Champions in FIFA 23.

Let’s take a look at the FUT Champions format and the rewards for each rank in FIFA 23 so you know exactly what to aim for.

FIFA 23 FUT Champions changes

FIFA 23 FUT Champions format explained

The format for FUT Champions in FIFA 23 is mostly unchanged from FIFA 22. If you were familiar with last year’s formula, then you should come to terms with FIFA 23’s FUT Champions quite quickly. Given that EA made major changes to the format in FIFA 22, it was no surprise that they did not look to deliver drastic alterations to FUT Champions in FIFA 23.

Of course, it’s possible that EA decide to alter the format, ranks, and rewards after the release of FIFA 23, but we’ll focus on the format as it is right now.

Champions Play-Offs

FUT Champions is split into two competitions: Champions Play-Offs and Champions Finals. Champions Play-Offs are essentially qualification matches that players must complete to access Champions Finals, which is the core FUT Champions competition.

However, before you can access Champions Play-Offs matches, you must play Division Rivals to earn Champions Qualification Points. You will need 1,500 CQP to participate in Champions Play-Offs matches.

After earning enough points playing Division Rivals, you will automatically be entered into Play-Offs. From this stage, you need 20 points to qualify for Champions Finals. Each Champions Play-Offs win will earn you four points, while a loss will result in one point.

In FIFA 23, players have ten matches to earn 20 points to qualify for Champions Finals. This means you’ll need a minimum of four wins out of ten matches. After reaching this milestone you’ll earn a Finals Qualification Token, which can be redeemed straight away, or saved for another weekend, as well as rewards for completing the Play-Offs stage.

Champions Finals

Champions Finals is where the real grind begins. This competition takes place throughout the weekend from Friday morning at 12 AM PT / 3 AM ET / 8 AM BST to Monday morning at the same time. Players will have 20 matches to earn as many points as possible with four points being rewarded for a win and one for a loss.

After the 20 matches, each player will be placed in one of ten ranks, which will determine the quality of your FUT Champions rewards.

You’ll be able to redeem rewards after all 20 matches are complete or once the Champions Finals event comes to an end.

Your FUT Champions experience in FIFA 23 should look something like this:

  1. Play Division Rivals to earn Champions Qualification Points
  2. Once the required number of points are earned, you’ll automatically be entered into Play-Offs
  3. Play Play-Offs matches to earn enough points to qualify for Champions Finals
  4. Play all of your Champions Finals matches to earn the maximum amount of points
  5. Redeem FUT Champions rewards based on your rank
