Ultimate Team

See the video for details on the new features in FIFA 14 Ultimate Team. All option covered on this page are:
From the manual:
FIFA Ultimate Team
Create your own Ultimate Team, fine-tune it to perfect Team Chemistry, and try to reach the top of the FIFA Ultimate Team (FUT) leaderboards. Choose players to build Squads with high Chemistry, buy or sell items on the 24/7 live Transfer Market, and play in a variety of both single player and online game modes.

Getting started
When you first start Ultimate Team, you'll learn how to swap and link players to improve Team Chemistry before playing a starter match. From there, you can start your own Squad and explore the Transfer Market, Pack Store, and your Club.

Chemistry
Chemistry is at the core of what makes your Ultimate Team successful. Having a team of star players can help you shine on the pitch, but your Squad must also have the right Chemistry to allow you to maximize its performance. The higher your Chemistry, the better your team performs during matches-and that means a better chance at winning games.

Your team's Chemistry Rating appears in the upper right corner when viewing your Active Squad. Placing players in their preferred positions can improve Chemistry. You should also encourage Nationality, League, and Club Chemistry by linking players so the connections between them are green-indicating a strong link.

Swap your players around on the Active Squad screen and add new ones from your Club or the Transfer Market to find the ideal balance for your team!

Chemistry Styles
Every player in Ultimate Team has a Chemistry Style. This affects which attributes will be improved based on the player's Chemistry Rating. Arrows appear beside the attributes that a specific Chemistry Style affects, and as you start building up Chemistry, they will turn from white to green.

To get the most out of your Squad, you can apply new Styles to them to change their attributes and, in turn, the team's overall tactics. The effects remain on a player until a new Style is applied. You can find these Styles in Packs and on the Transfer Market.

Contracts
Before players can excel out on the pitch, they need contracts to play matches. When viewing your Active Squad, highlight a player and press X to access the Actions menu, and then select APPLY CONSUMABLE to apply a Contract to a player. Move RS to switch to the status view, which shows the amount of remaining contracts for every player.

To give you a head start, the Players from your Starter Pack will come with a special long-term Contract (45 matches). All Players found in Packs start with seven Contracts, and each match they play reduces the number of Contracts by one. If a player is in your subs or reserves but doesn't head onto the pitch at all, he does not lose a Contract for that match.

Matches, tournaments and seasons
Challenge your team and reap the rewards in Matches, Tournaments, and Seasons.

Tournament matches are always single-round knockout matches, and can be played online or as single player games. Win matches to earn Coins, or take your team to the top and win a Tournament to gain Trophies, Coins, and sometimes even Packs.

Seasons consist of 10 games, playable Online or in Single Player mode. Try to make it through and win the Season or gain promotion! In this mode, the promotion, hold, and relegation system means that losing a match doesn't eliminate your team from the season, giving you the opportunity to bounce back from defeats.

Transfer market
The Transfer Market is the hub for purchasing, listing, and selling items. Here, you can find new Players to increase your Squad's overall rating and Chemistry Rating. If you're looking for a new Player, use the search filters such as Quality, Position, Chemistry Style, and Pricing to quickly find the ideal footballer to complement your Active Squad.

Search by name
If you want to search for a specific Player to fill out your Squad, use the first option in Player Search to type in his first or last name. This lets you easily select the Player you want based on the search results that appear.

Search from squad
For the first time in the Transfer Market, you can search for a Player directly from your Active Squad, compare him to other Players, and submit a Transfer Bid for him if desired. Simply highlight the Player on your Active Squad screen, press X to bring up the Actions menu, select SWAP PLAYER and then SEARCH TRANSFER MARKET.

Pack store
Purchase Packs from the store to find new Players for your Squad. You'll also sometimes earn Packs from winning Tournaments or as a special reward at the end of a Season.

My club
As you gain new players through the Transfer Market and from Packs you have purchased or won, you will have more than enough Players for one Squad. My Club contains all of the players not in your current Squad, as well as your Consumables and other Items.

Leaderboards
Check out the leaderboards to compare yourself to your friends or the top 100 FUT users across the globe as you build your Ultimate Team, play Tournaments and Seasons, and grow your Club.

The first time you enter Ultimate Team you are given your starter pack of cards so that you can build your own ultimate team. Your starter pack team is made up of 22 players, a manager, a ball, a stadium and a home and an away kit. These cards will mostly be bronze with the odd gold and silver card dropped in for good measure. All these cards will be untradeable, so can't be placed on the transfer list, and if you discard them you will get 0 coins. The players and manager will also start with 45 contracts, so you'll be able to use this team for quite a while.

If you have played FUT before (like in FIFA 13) then you will also get up to 4 loyalty all players packs:
All players pack
Welcome back to FIFA Ultimate Team! This pack includes 12 players, 4 each of Bronze, Silver, and Gold, with a t least 1 Rare.

You may also have received a code with your FIFA 14 game depending on whether you have the Ultimate edition, or if you pre-ordered, for more packs.

Once you are set up when you click into Ultimate Team you will see there are six tabs under which are the various Ultimate Team (or FUT, where F stands for FIFA) options:



FUT Central

The FUT Central tab is like a title page. It shows a couple of highlighted ultimate team items, one of which will be the last thing you did (such as a tournament you were playing, and the other being a news item (e.g. TOTW, a happy hour) and the leaderboards.

Clicking on the highlighted ultimate team items will take you into them. Clicking on the leaderboards will take you to the leaderboards. (For more on Leaderboards see the My Club section.)

The other five sections contain the meat of FUT.

Please read all the sections to get the maximum amount of help with Ultimate Team.

Play

In Play you can play a: But before you can play you need a squad. To get a good squad together read the tips in the Squads section.

A single player season sees you play a season similar to Seasons. You start in division 10 and hopefully earn titles as you make your way to division 1. Each season has 10 games and your progress will be shown in the current season box with the points required for promotion and for the title shown, as well as the points you need to get above to avoid relegation to the division below.

Also shown is your season history which shows your all-time single player season record (W-D-L) and your titles won. Also selectable is the option to see your fixture list and the teams you will be playing. This will also show the rating of each team (out of 5 stars) and the difficulty level of each match (amateur through to ultimate).

By clicking on the current season box you get to see, in addition to the stuff on the screen before, how many matches remain of your season, your current form (last five games), your rewards for the division and your last three results with opponent and score across the bottom.

By clicking on the season history box you get to see some more stats. You get to see your: Lastly on the main page of single player season you see below that if you press X you can forfeit a season.
Forfeiting will result in losing all progress made in the current season, after which you will be able to start a new season in your current division. Are you sure you want to forfeit the season?
So not recommended although you could avoid a relegation by using it.

At each divisional level there are four different 10-game leagues you can play. By clicking on them you can see the fixtures to see what teams you'd be pitted against and the difficulty level that the matches would be played at. You'll also get to see your rewards for winning, including any free packs. All the single player divisions are listed below. It is recommended that you try for the one with the most reward each time, particularly if you have assembled a good squad and if the points required for the title are low (as they are in the lower divisions). Also these are the leagues without restrictions on your entry requirements so will be easier to create a squad for. Can you reach the ultimate goal of Division 1?

Online season is similar to single player season except you play online opponents and there is only one league at each level to choose from. The fixture list feature of single player season is removed because opponents are dependent on who is online when you choose to play a match. Instead it is replaced with a leaderboards section so you can see how your friends are doing in their ultimate team seasons and how you compare to them.

Clicking on the leaderboards section gives you the option to look at your season points, titles won and seasons completed and compare to your friends or the top 100 looking at either the all-time record, the weekly record or the monthly record.

Also of note is that online seasons require fewer points for promotion, and the rewards are higher.

A single player tournament is where you play in a 16-team knock-out tournament against computer-controlled teams. It is a knock-out cup with drawn games going to extra time and penalties. The team that wins goes through to the next round whilst the team that loses gets knocked out. If you win through all four rounds you win. The reward, the difficulty level and the restrictions for each entry are available on the main screen. The little icons at the side of the trophy silhouette show the amount of coins you get for winning, any cards you get for winning, and any packs you get from winning. When you do win the tournament the trophy silhouette gets filled in. You also get a trophy entered into the trophy cabinet which you can see in the My Club section of My Club.

An example of a featured tournament
Some tournaments are featured tournaments (click the link to see the list of all featured tournaments yet). These are only around for a limited period so you have to make sure you win them quickly before they disappear (the closing date is now shown) if you want to maximise your trophy cabinet, otherwise:



Entry to the following tournament is closed. Featured tournaments will expire after a set time, winning them quickly is key to building your club's trophy cabinet.
Featured tournaments will always be at the far left as you cycle through the tournaments available.

The online tournament is similar although you play online opponents and the rewards are greater, plus the same featured tournaments may not appear in both. (In FIFA 13 single player featured tournaments were more regular than online featured tournaments, although the online ones often matched a similar single player one).

Tournaments: It's not just about winning, it's about how you play the game. The Team of the Tournament award goes to the best performance in the final match of a tournament, not necessarily the winner.

The TOTW challenge (Team of the Week) pits you against the TOTW, as determined by EA. The TOTW comes out at 6pm UK time every Wednesday, although this will stop when FIFA 15 comes out. The TOTW is made up of in-form cards that are rare cards that are only found in packs during that week. For more on in-form cards see the Squads section.

The bonuses on offer for beating that week's TOTW are as below:

DifficultyReward for win
Amateur150
Semi-Pro250
Professional400
World Class600
Legendary750
Ultimate1,000


You can get this bonus once a week, and only for the active TOTW. This is on top of the coins you would normally earn from a match. Note that Ultimate difficulty is a difficulty level only available in Ultimate Team whilst other modes have Legendary as their highest difficulty. This may explain why the Legendary and Ultimate difficulties don't feel much different.

up


Choosing to play a online single match lets you play an online match against someone else's FIFA Ultimate Team and is a feature that wasn't in FIFA 13. You'll get to see their star rating and chemistry up front too so if you don't like what you see you can back out.

up


Choosing to play a friend online is similar where instead of meeting a random player online you can invite your friend and play against their Ultimate Team.

Earning coins by playing matches

You get two sets of coin bonuses upon completing a match, a completion award (325 coins for an offline game) and skill awards. Skill awards are coin bonuses for achieving certain things in the game, such as scoring goals. To maximise your coins earned through skill awards use the table below. There is also a multiplier applied to this which is based on the quality difference between your team and the other team, and the difficulty level, so you could fill your bench with low-ranked bronze players which brings your overall team star rating down and your multiplier up. For online matches a further DNF modifier is applied where DNF stands for Did Not Finish. This stays at the maximum 1.25 if you don't quit online matches, and if you do quit matches it goes down, although it will rise again if you don't quit matches after it.

Squads

Choosing the Squads tab will give you these options to select: Your Active Squad shows you the squad of players you have at that time. Your Active Squad will be made up of 11 starting player cards, 7 subs and 5 reserves. There will also be a manager. If a slot is vacant, i.e. no player fills that position, then it will be black. If a starting player or sub slot is vacant you can't play a match until it is filled.

There are several types of cards available in ultimate team. The main cards are player cards, of which there are several types too.

Cards can be gold, silver or bronze. Cards can be bought either from the Store or through Transfers.

Gold cards are players who are overall rated 75-99, silver cards are players who are rated 65-74, and bronze cards are players overall rated 64 or below.

There are also rare cards that are bronze, silver or gold but have white writing instead of black, have an enhanced bronze, silver or gold colour, and come on a fancier shield shape than normal cards with fancy pointy bits at the top. These cards are rarer but not the rarest cards in the game. No, the rarest are in-form cards.

In-forms come from the Team of the Week (TOTW). Every week EA picks a squad of players out who have performed well in their leagues and places them in packs for that week only. They have black backgrounds, and the players' stats are higher than their normal cards. The first TOTW for FIFA 14 came out on the 18th September and they will continue to come out weekly until FIFA 15.

MOTM (Man of the Match) cards are also available. These are another type of in-form. They come out when a player has performed well in an important cup game, and are normally available through packs for just 24 hours, as opposed to the week that normal TOTW cards are available for. MOTM cards have orange backgrounds. Again the player's stats are upped against their normal card.

Lastly there are TOTS (Team of the Season) cards. These have blue backgrounds with yellow trim and come out at the end of the season based on players' performances through the season. The players' stats are upped against their normal card. TOTY (Team of the Year) cards are similar (blue backgrounds, but without the yellow) and come out at the end of the calendar year (i.e. 2013) based on the FIFPro list of best players.

To find out when all these special cards become available in packs be sure to follow @EASPORTSFIFA on Twitter.

Legends (more have been added since)
Also when the XBox One version of FIFA 14 is released player legends will be introduced to the game. These are player cards of retired players, but with stats and appearances that place them in their prime. Legends include the likes of Pele, Marco van Basten and David Seaman. These are exclusive to the XBox.

Looking at a player card you have four basic views: The Summary tab shows the players main attributes (which can go up to a max of 99). For outfield players these are: For goalkeepers these are: The Player Info can be used to improve chemistry links. By viewing it you can see whether the player has a loyalty bonus or not, whether he has a manager bonus or not, what his nationality is, his league and his club. (More on chemistry below).

The Status view shows the number of remaining contracts the player has, their fitness (out to 99), and their chemistry rating (out of 10). Players from packs start with 99 fitness and this goes down through matches played. Players from packs start with 7 contracts, which will allow them to take part in 7 matches. The exception is your starter pack players who have 45 contract. These totals can be topped up with contract cards. Fitness can be topped up too through cards, or by benching the player.

The Chemistry Style view shows the chemistry style you have applied to that player, and the attributes that can be affected by chemistry (these are the same as those on the summary view). All players start with Basic chemistry style which doesn't affect any of their attributes.

You can also view the Bio of a card by clicking RS on it. This will show you, in addition to the above, the player's bio (first name, last name, known as (if that player has a nickname), date of birth, height, player workrate (attacking/defensive), preferred foot, weak foot star rating (out of 5), skill moves star rating (out of 5)) and some item details (date card was issued, the amount you bought the card for or if you were the first owner of the card, number of owners, games played (split by your club and previous clubs, just like all the following), goals scored, assists, yellow cards and red cards).

Chemistry
To get your players playing well together you need to maximise their chemistry. This is done in many ways. First play players in the correct position. You'll know they're in the correct position because the spot below the card will be green. You can get a partial chemistry bonus by playing the player in a similar position, e.g. a CM in a RM position. By playing a player completely out of position, e.g. a forward in a defence spot, you don't get chemistry and the spot will be red.

This may mean you need to experiment with formations to fit your players best.

Available formations in FUT are:
Loyalty bonus
Then you can get improved chemistry by building links (players linked are joined by lines) between the players by matching their club, nationality or league. Again changing formation may help here. Green lines give you the maximum chemistry bonus, orange lines give you a partial bonus, and red lines don't add chemistry.

Then you can get +1 chemistry for the player through a loyalty bonus. Players found in packs are automatically loyal. Players found in the transfer market will earn loyalty after playing 10 matches.

Manager bonus
You can also improve chemistry by +1 manager bonus. Players who share the same nationality or league with the manager get bonus chemistry. Manager league items (this is a consumable item, for more on consumable items refer to the My Club section) can be applied to managers to change their assigned league.

The aim is to get Chemistry to be 100 or near to it. This makes your players play better as they control the ball better, do better runs and so on, so it is worth getting this as high as you can.

Related to this, and new to FIFA 14, is Chemistry Styles. Chemistry Styles improve your Player's specific attributes (and not just for one game like the training card consumables do).
Chemistry Styles
  • Chemistry Styles are linked to your Player's Chemistry Rating.
  • The higher your Player's Chemistry, the more effective Chemistry Styles will be.
  • All players start with the Basic Chemistry Style. You can change from one Style to another using the Chemistry Style Consumable.
  • High Chemistry makes your Players play better. Chemistry Styles show you which Player attributes improve with high Chemistry.
  • As your Player reaches maximum Chemistry the arrows will change from white to green. This means that they're receiving more benefits from the current Chemistry Style.
  • The more Green Arrows you see next to an attribute, the more your Player's skill improves.
  • One green arrow - minor improvement, two green arrows - medium improvement, three green arrows - maximum improvement.
  • Each Chemistry Style affects different Player Attributes. Change Chemistry Styles to change how your Squad plays.
  • Change match tactics by changing your Player's Chemistry Style.

The basic chemistry style cards can be identified by a silhouette of a footballer standing holding the ball by his side. The attacking chemistry style cards can be identified by the silhouette of a player shooting the ball. The midfield chemistry style cards can be identified by the silhouette of a player dribbling the ball. The defending chemistry style cards can be identified by the silhouette of a player sliding for the ball. The special chemistry style cards can be identified by the silhouette of a player flicking the ball with his heel. The goalkeeping chemistry style cards can be identified by the silhouette of a goalkeeper diving for the ball.

For the Squad Selector option you can have several different squads set up so that you can quickly change between teams, without having to change all the players individually. There are 15 slots available for squads, but you can purchase FUT extra squad slots for FCC from the EAS FC Catalogue (available at levels 5, 12, 25, 29, 40, 49, 59, 63, 70 and 90).

Within this option you can use the Create Squad option to create a squad, either manually or with the aid of a squad builder which will speed things along a little. Of course these are only relevant when you have lots of available player cards to choose from in your club, and not just enough for one squad.

Store

The Store is where you use your hard-earned coins (or not if you purchase FIFA Points, which is where you use real money to purchase in game coins, and is not something I recommend) to buy packs. The options here are: The Gold Packs option is accessible via the Browse Packs option too. The FIFA Points option is also accessible there too. FIFA Points are a way to buy FIFA Ultimate Team coins using real money (100 FIFA Points = 79 pence in British currency, with a 20% discount if you are a season ticket subscriber). This is for people who want to build a good team quickly. For cheapskates like me we prefer to build our teams slowly using in game coins.

Of course buying packs is only one of the ways of getting cards. The other way is to search the transfer list which in general proves to be more economical.

There are several packs available to buy in the Browse Packs section:

Bronze packs
There are two bronze packs normally. These are the innovatively named Bronze Pack and the Premium Bronze Pack.
Bronze Pack
Great value for increasing club depth and building better chemistry. Includes 12 items, mostly Bronze, and 1 rare.

400 coins
Premium Bronze Pack
For those looking for the highest quality Bronze items, this is the clear choice. Includes 12 Items, mostly Bronze and 3 rare.

750 coins


Silver Packs
Similarly there are two sets of Silver packs:
Silver Pack
The best value for maintaining and building squads for mid-tiered events. Includes 12 items, mostly Silver, and 1 rare.

2,500 coins or 50 FIFA Points
Premium Silver Pack
For those looking for the highest quality Silver items, this is the clear choice. Includes 12 Items, mostly Silver and 3 rare.

3,750 coins or 75 FIFA Points


Gold Packs
This is where the best players can be picked up.
Gold Pack
The best pack to find the best players for building your number one squad. Includes 12 items, mostly Gold, and 1 rare.

5,000 coins or 100 FIFA Points
Premium Gold Pack
The best pack for finding those elite players to fill out your best squad. Includes 12 Items, mostly Gold and 3 rare.

7,500 coins or 150 FIFA Points


Special Packs
These contain different offerings to your standard packs.
Silver Upgrade
Upgrade to a Silver team! A one-time only offer with 11 Silver players and a manager.

15,000 coins or 50 FIFA Points
Gold Upgrade
Upgrade to a Gold team! A one-time only offer with 11 Gold players and a manager.

30,000 coins or 75 FIFA Points

As well as these standard packs other packs become available during happy hours.

Happy Hours You may also have another section of the Store called My Packs. This is where you can claim any packs that you've earned but not yet opened. These might come as prizes for winning tournaments, or through free gifts that you receive by using the EA Sports web app, when these are available (details will always be announced on Twitter for these @EASPORTSFIFA, but also via the news items in game so keep a look-out).

Transfers

In the Transfers section of Ultimate Team you can buy and sell individual cards at auction, or at buy-it-now prices (even if you are XBox Live Silver). The options when coming into this section are:

Transfer Market
Transfer Market is where you search for cards. You can search by card type (players, consumables, club items, staff), then subcategories underneath that, the main one being gold, silver or bronze level of the card. For the player search you can choose to filter your search by: This is useful for getting players that fit into your team with good chemistry, rather than relying on packs for your cards. Also the search by player name is useful too for getting specific players, and is really easy to use as it uses an autofill feature.

up


The items you bid on can be seen in your Transfer Targets (although some might fall off the end if you have bid on lots of cards) and you can also choose to add cards to your watch list that can be viewed here too, perhaps so that you keep tabs on it and bid at the last minute.

There is also the option to trade offer on cards where you can do swapsies. This is a good way of getting rid of cards quickly. Trade offers can only be done with people on your friend's list, so see if you can get a trading partner.

up


The Transfer List is where you sell your cards. Make sure you expand your trade pile size from 30 to 50 by buying the FUT Increased Trade Pile Size items off of the EAS FC Catalogue.

When you sell a card EA charge a 5% tax off of the winning bid. That is why whenever you list a card you always get a message pop up:
Your item is now up for trade and can be tracked on your Trade Pile. Successful auctions are charged a small percentage auction fee from the final auction price.
Bear this in mind when setting prices.

My Club

In the My Club section you will see the following: My club is where you can see all the cards you have in your club. When you click into it you will be given the option to search for a particular card. Otherwise you can browse in which case the following subcategories will be available, providing you have at least one card that fits into that section: You can cycle through these and look at individual clubs and the players you have from each club. When browsing through there will be details at the bottom telling you how many rare players you have in that category, how many gold, silver and bronze players, the total players, kits and badges you have in that category.

For the staff section the summary at the bottom will instead tell you the numbers of managers, head coaches, fitness coaches, GK coaches and physio coaches you have.

Lastly you can see all the trophies you've won in the Play section which will be split by single player and online trophies. Each trophy will have details telling you when you first won it and the number of times you've won it.

It is important to know about the consumables. There are several types of consumables: The Player training and Goalkeeper training cards can be applied to players to improve their attributes for one game only (the next one they play after receiving the card boost). The cards available are bronze, silver and gold for all the individual attributes, plus rare cards for improving all the players attributes.

The effect will be shown on the card. You can also boost this based on the staff you have at your club. If you have, say, lots of pace coaches and their total pace boost = 20% then you will get a 20% boost on top of whatever the pace boost of the card says when you apply it. There is a 50% limit though so if you have pace coaches with a combined 80% boost you'll still only receive a 50% boost.

Position change cards can be used to change players positions, which is useful for increasing your chemistry. The position change cards available are: The Chemistry Styles can be applied to players to permanently improve their attributes. More on Chemistry Styles is in the Squads section.

Manager Leagues cards can be applied to managers to change the league of that manager. This may be useful for Chemistry purposes. For example you may have an predominantly Brazilian Barclays Premier League squad, and you have a Brazilian manager who manages in the Eredivisie, so he is giving your chemistry a boost through his matching of the players nationalities but not through his league. Hence applying a manager league card for the Barclays Premier League will give your chemistry an extra boost.

Contracts can be applied to players, or managers, so that they can play, or manage, in more matches for you. Bronze contract cards work best on bronze players/managers, silver on silver and gold on gold. Again you can get up to a 50% boost on contracts through your staff. The managers have a negotiation percentage. Once these add up to 50% or over amongst all the managers in your club you will get that 50% boost whenever you apply a contract consumable, otherwise you will get a lesser boost based on the total of their negotiation percentages. Because of this it is worth stocking up on managers with negotiation percentages early on in Ultimate Team so that you always get maximum boost on contracts.

Similarly Fitness and Healing cards can be boosted in the same way using the appropriate staff. Fitness cards can increase your players fitness. This is useful if they are an absolutely vital member of your squad and you can't bench them. Otherwise a player's fitness can be improved by placing them on the bench or reserves of your squad and not playing them in the match.

Healing cards are for when your players pick up an injury. The injuries your player can pick up are to their: There is also an All card that can be used for any injury your player picks up, rather than the healing cards that can only be used for the specific injury mentioned on it. If you have no healing cards you can still heal the player by putting them in the reserves of your squad and playing out the required amount of matches that they are out for.

Consumables this year are stacked so that you can hold unlimited quantities within your club.

The Leaderboards show how your Ultimate Team compares against your friends, or alternatively you can view and compare yourself to the top 100 in the world. There are four different categories of leaderboard and you can view either the all-time, weekly or monthly totals (i.e. since the beginning of the month) for each of the following: These are self-explanatory, except club value. Each player card has a value. No other cards (e.g. staff, badges and kits) contribute to your club value. The value of each player is worked out using the calculation in the table below:

CardValue
In-form((player rating + 15)^3)/2 (rounded if not a whole number)
Rare and Legends(player rating^3)/2 (rounded if not a whole number)
Non-rare((player rating - 15)^3)/2 (rounded if not a whole number)

(where ^ means "to the power of", so "^3" means cubed)

Also on the leaderboards you can directly compare against a particular person by clicking A on them. This will show your relative records for the four leaderboards, and also your overall W-D-L record and the aggregate number of trophies you have won.

The Player Stats are worth looking at too. These show the players in your active squad by their overall rating, their games played, their goals scored, and their red and yellow cards accumulated.

As for the Delete club option, I have no idea why you'd want to do this. If it is because your DNF modifier is low because you have quit lots of matches, then you just need to play and complete some matches and it'll go back up again. If it is because you want to have a different name for your club then you can purchase the FUT Change Team Name item from the EAS FC Catalogue. There is no need to resort to deleting your club, especially now when your starter pack cards are untradeable.

If however you do ignore this sage advice please be advised you can only delete your club 5 times in total.

Hi, Love your site! really helped me starting out. I have been having a problem with getting my players out of my club to my active squad. All I keep getting when i select my player in my club is I can transfer them or I can sell them. I can't get them to go over to my active squad. How do I do this?

Hi Shaun, glad you like the site. I think you need to go to your active squad and demote one of your players, like a sub or one of the squad players to create a space. Then you can search your club for a different player to put in that space, or you can then scroll through the players at your club and place the one you want in the gap.

Hi Muhammad, 4 in the starting XI means you need four players in your team that meet the set criteria.

Hi.
Nicely done out there, you've untucked me from my poor situation by the quick selling way o/.
Anyway, a Brazilian manager with Brazilian players doesn't need to match their league, as you still can get Roberto Martνnez (Spain, Barclays PL) for both Ramos and De Gea (receiving +1 then no increment if both league and nationality match).
