Starting a FIFA 22 Career Mode is a great way to spend your time with EA’s football behemoth, so here are the best teams to use, and the most fun saves you can create.

Whereas many players are eager to dive into EA’s popular Ultimate Team and Pro Clubs modes, there are always traditional players that simply need their FIFA 22 Career Mode fix.

A season in football can change so much: a couple of transfer windows, injuries, breakthrough years, hot prospects, all these are big factors in determining how the next one plays out.

It’s been another huge year in the world of football, and all the happenings have drastically altered the best teams in FIFA 22 and made lesser teams more viable. So here’s a complete guide to the best FIFA 22 Career Mode teams you can use, and fun save files you can have.

Top 10 FIFA 22 Career Mode teams & fun saves

1. PSG

Transfer Budget: £137,610,448 / $184,933,993

Key players: Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, Neymar Jr., Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Angel Di Maria, and Marco Verratti

A real fun one to start with, PSG is the quintessential dream team and a real-life Ultimate Team to use. PSG has strength in depth all across the park, and it’s a squad just screaming out for goals, assists, wins, and silverware.

If you still don’t think you’re going to romp to an easy Ligue 1 win and guide PSG to their first-ever European Cup glory, then their sizable budget should help you bring in any other recruitments you desire.

2. Manchester United

Transfer Budget: £163,630,432 / $219,902,119

Key players: Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandes, Jadon Sancho, Paul Pogba, and Luke Shaw

This is arguably the strongest team that Manchester United has had since the glory days of Sir Alex Ferguson. With a litany of world-class talent, now could finally be the time for Man Utd to shine brighter than their nearest rivals.

As a Premier League top dog, you could opt for Liverpool, Man City, or Chelsea, but United’s barren run without a League Title is startling, and they have multiple pacey wingers to feed one of the all-time great footballers – Ronaldo.

3. Aston Villa

Transfer Budget: £35,077,456 / $47,140,417

Key players: Jacob Ramsey, Leon Bailey, Philippe Coutinho, Tyrone Mings, and Emiliano Martinez

If you’re looking for a team to do a Leicester City and break the top 4 or 5 teams’ dominance, then we think Aston Villa is a tremendous shout in FIFA 22.

With some really good players in each position: a quality striker, speedy wingers – particularly Leon Bailey – a boss midfield of John McGinn and Douglas Luiz, and solid defensive options, you can easily add to these positives with a healthy transfer budget too.

4. Wrexham AFC

Transfer Budget: £1,015,417 / $1,364,613

Key players: Paul Mullin, Ben Tozer, and James Jones

No, Wrexham is not a typo. The club, currently situated in the fifth division of English Football, has gained some extra followers around the world as they are now bizarrely owned by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.

The story has become such a sensation that they have now been added to FIFA 22. So it could be time to take this team of aspiring hopefuls to the Premier League and pull off a miracle that not even L.A screenwriters could envisage.

Note: Wrexham AFC can be found in the ‘Rest of the World’ section, and you can then replace them with any team in League Two.

5. Napoli

Transfer Budget: £48,229,764 / $64,815,738

Key players: Lorenzo Insigne, Victor Osimhen, Piotr Zielinski, Konstantinos Manolas, and Kalidou Koulibaly

Every year Napoli retains the majority of its star-studded squad, sometimes adding more quality to it, and every year they somehow fail to mount a proper charge for the coveted Serie A title.

It’s crazy to think how good Napoli is from top-to-bottom, but with Juventus wavering and the league more open than it has been for some time, you could easily sign one or two more brilliant players and capture their first league crown since 1990.

6. Barcelona

Transfer Budget: £111,832,768 / $150,291,497

Key players: Ansu Fati, Frenkie de Jong, Pedri, Adama Traore, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ferran Torres, and Marc-Andre ter Stegen

How the mighty have fallen, it’s almost impossible for Barcelona’s demise to have been documented anymore publicly. Financial woes, Lionel Messi no longer at the club, and a team with no identity.

Yet, EA seems to have overlooked this and presented Barcelona with an astronomical budget. The fun challenge is turning Barcelona into a team that can compete again, without Messi. The winter transfers of Torres, Aubameyang, and Traore add a ton of pace to an already youthful squad.

7. Schalke 04

Transfer Budget: £15,964,096 / $21,454,068

Key players: Simon Terodde, Salif Sane, and Ralk Fahrmann

It’s a sad state of affairs for one of football’s most sacred clubs. Schalke 04 has had multiple troubles that contributed to one of the worst seasons in the history of the Bundesliga.

Now they are in 2. Bundesliga, and you can bring them back to greatness again. With a reasonable budget, make some loan signings, capitalize on a great stadium and atmosphere, and get the club back into the top division and challenging for Europe!

8. Borussia Dortmund

Transfer Budget: £54,298,584 / $72,985,387

Key players: Erling Haaland, Jude Bellingham, Marco Reus, Giovanni Reyna, Thorgan Hazard, Axel Witsel, and Mats Hummels

Jadon Sancho may be gone, but Borussia Dortmund has a plethora of high-caliber stars that can step up and finally dethrone the mighty Bayern Munich.

When you go through this Dortmund team, it beggars belief that they haven’t won the league since 2012. This season might have to be the one though as star-striker Erling Haaland could be on the move next year, so feed him using their array of talent and bring the big one home.

9. Lyon

Lucas Paqueta Lyon FIFA 22

Transfer Budget: £43,001,288 / $57,800,138

Key players: Moussa Dembele, Tanguy Ndombele, Houssem Aouar, Jason Denayer, Romain Faivre, and Lucas Paquetá

During PSG’s last 10 years of spending and dominance, they have been dethroned twice by two separate teams, but strangely neither of them have been Lyon.

Like so many fun teams on this list, they have a veritable smorgasbord of great players at their disposal and should be more dominant than they are. Depay has left a hole that Dembele can fill, but their war chest is big enough for you to make some key additions to the squad and become team number three.

10. AC Milan

Transfer Budget: £32,053,414 / $43,084,564

Key players: Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ante Rebic, Franck Kessie, Simon Kjaer, Theo Hernandez, and Mike Maignan

The final football club on our list oozes history and prestige, and AC Milan’s name is synonymous with success – until recently.

A revolving door of managers and players has made AC Milan an unpredictable proposition, which is especially more painful given that their local neighbors Inter have finally climbed back to the top of the pedestal. Make the most of AC Milan’s modest budget, and with the talismanic Ibra on your side, the red half of Milan could be victorious again.


That concludes our list of the top 10 FIFA 22 Career Mode teams you should consider using. With a variety of different leagues, scenarios, and budgets, there is something for everyone.

We also have complete guides for the best players in each position for Career Mode: Goalkeepers, Defenders, Midfielders, Wingers, and Strikers.

EA Sports’ costly mistake lets players purchase FIFA 23 for less than $1

A costly error from EA Sports has allowed FIFA 23 players to purchase the game’s Ultimate Edition for less than $1.

FIFA 23 players

Some football fans were lucky enough to purchase the Ultimate Edition of FIFA 23 for less than $1 following a major mistake made by EA Sports.

FIFA 23 is right around the corner and players are eager to test out all of the new features that EA Sports revealed. After presentations for Pro Clubs, Career Mode, and Ultimate Team, it’s no surprise that hype for the next stage of the football franchise is starting to build.

FIFA 23 is currently available for pre-order, with several different avenues available to players depending on the platform of their choice. FIFA’s popularity has grown over the years thanks to the success of the fan-favorite Ultimate Team mode.

While FIFA has always been a success on console, the franchise has experienced growth across the PC platform as well. According to the EA Sports FIFA 23 webpage, PC players can pre-order the game through Steam, Stadia, or the Epic Games store.

For a short period of time, players who looked to pre-order FIFA 23 through the Epic Games store were met with a shocking surprise as they found the game available for less than $1. Unfortunately for EA Sports, it seems like they have no choice but to honor the absurdly low price.

As a Reddit post puts it, at the beginning of August, FIFA 23 was available for pre-order on the Epic Games store for ₹5, which is roughly the equivalent of 0.063 USD or £0.052. The OP then adds that, “for context: that was the ultimate edition for 0.063USD.”

To put things into perspective FIFA 23’s Ultimate Edition on PC will set players back $89.99 (USD.) Following the purchases at the incorrect price, the EA Sports FIFA Team issued a statement concerning their costly mistake.

As you can see in the post above, EA took ownership of the mistake and incorrect price by stating that they will be “honoring all pre-purchases made at that price.”

If you’re disappointed that you didn’t seize the opportunity of an absolute steal for FIFA 23, it turns out that there were very specific requirements to meet. One comment states that, “it was only possible in India(or i guess with a VPN) and only for an hour or so.”

Even if you did use a VPN the incorrect price was only around for about an hour, so there’s no telling if you would have made the cut. Players who were lucky enough to capitalize on this error will practically get to enjoy FIFA 23 for free this year.

Ultimate Team fans will once again have the opportunity to utilize FUT Hero cards in FIFA 23 after they made their debut in FIFA 22. Here’s a list of all the FUT Hero cards confirmed to arrive in FIFA 23.

FIFA 23 will be the final game of the franchise to include the FIFA branding before EA shifts to EA Sports FC. Fans have high expectations for the game that will bring an end to the partnership’s dominant era.

While FIFA 23 is set to introduce new features like World Cup content and crossplay support, Ultimate Team fans will be happy to know that some returning features will also appear in FIFA 23.

One of these returning features is none other than FUT Hero cards. Here’s everything you need to know about FUT Hero cards in FIFA 23.

What are FUT Hero cards in FIFA 23

FUT Hero cards were a new introduction in FIFA 22 and the concept is meant to highlight incredible players of the past who never quite reached icon status.

EA picked a set of players that shared a common characteristic of leadership and respect for the clubs they played for.

These Hero items are special cards in FUT as they utilize unique chemistry attributes. They offer league-specific chemistry and provide a green club link to any player within the same league.

FIFA 23 confirmed FUT Hero cards

While EA have yet to announce every new FIFA 23 FUT Hero, they have revealed the first few stars from the Premier League and LaLiga that will show up.
