Starting a FIFA 22 Career Mode is a great way to kick-off 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: Danny Ings, Leon Bailey, John McGinn, 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 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, Dries Mertens, Piotr Zielinski, Konstantinos Manolas, Kalidou Koulibaly, and David Ospina

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: Sergio Aguero, Memphis Depay, Ansu Fati, Frenkie de Jong, Pedri, Coutinho, Pique, 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, and with a mixture of veteran class and unbelievably exciting youth, you can bring in genuine superstars to round out a mouthwatering team on paper.

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

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

Key players: Moussa Dembele, Xherdan Shaqiri, Houssem Aouar, Jason Denayer, and Anthony Lopes

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.

How to complete FIFA 22 Player Moments Ilkay Gundogan SBC

Ilkay Gundogan is looking like a great option in the midfield, and FUT players are going to want to complete his FIFA 22 Player Moments SBC.

Published

Player Moments Gundogan SBC

Manchester City’s Ilkay Gundogan is the latest player to receive a Player Moments SBC in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team. Here’s everything you need to know including stats and how to complete Gundogan’s Player Moments SBC.

Player Moments cards have been somewhat of a disappointment in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team but this Ilkay Gundogan SBC can potentially break that trend.

Luckily, Gundogan is easy to link to squads thanks to his Manchester City allegiance and German nationality. Although this SBC is a touch overpriced, players looking for a quick dribbling central midfielder will want to give him a try.

Players will be required to submit four squads to get their hands on this German maestro, and we’ve got the cheapest solution to give you a hand.

Gundogan’s two biggest assets are without a doubt his passing and dribbling which will allow you to breeze past defenders if used correctly. Gundogan is for the player that prefers a slow and methodic approach to Ultimate Team gameplay.

Unfortunately, his pace is a glaring weakness in the current Ultimate Team meta. Even central midfielders are now expected to boast a ton of pace and Gundogan simply does not have that quality.

Cheapest way to complete Player Moments Gundogan SBC

To complete this SBC players will need to give up four squads: Tactical Emulation, Germany, Premier League, and 88-Rated Squad. With a value of around 600,000 coins, Gundogan is certainly overpriced but those desperate for a new midfielder should not find it hard to invest fodder into this FIFA 22 SBC.

FIFA FUT 22 Team of the Year Warmup Series: Start date, TOTY leaks, more

Before FIFA 22’s Ultimate Team TOTY event, EA Sports are dropping a special Warmup Series promo to build hype.

Published

on

FIFA 22 TOTY Warm Up Series logo

Team of the Year is here, but before the full squad arrives, EA Sports are dropping the TOTY Warmup Series promo.

For the first time ever, EA Sports have decided to host a pre-TOTY event, with the Warmup preempting the release of the upcoming superpowered squad.

Because this is the first time it’s ever happened, there wasn’t a lot of information about this promo available to players. We can confirm that it’s linked to Team of the Year, and it will give players a chance to stock up on valuable packs.

Players can expect some SBCs, a handful of new packs, and maybe even a few player cards following its initial release. For now, here’s everything we know about FUT 22’s Team of the Year Warmup Series event.

FIFA 22 Team of the Year Warmup Series release date

The good news is that players won’t have long to wait for this promo to start. According to a loading screen in FIFA 22, TOTY Warmup Series will kick off on Friday, January 14.

As with all Ultimate Team promos, the promo will start at 6 PM GMT, adding new content to the game at that time.

TOTY Warmup Series leaks

Interestingly enough, FIFA leakers weren’t able to discover anything about this promo prior to its release.

As it turns out, EA have decided to throw players a curveball with the TOTY Warmup. Instead of receiving a collection of new promo cards, players have received new SBCs, Upgrade SBCs, and new Objectives.

Players will get a chance to earn some incredible new cards through these various means from now until the release of TOTY. EA has also granted players a free 83+ x3 pack that can be found in the FUT Store.

TOTY warmup series announcement

As of now, players can complete a Player Moments Ilkay Gundogan SBC, League Player Malang Sarr Objective, 83+ 3x defender, midfielder, and attacker upgrade SBC as well as two TOTY-themed SBCs.

We’ll be sure to keep updating this article as more information becomes available, while the TOTY Warmup Series continues.

In the meantime, make sure you’re using the best players possible with our guide to Ultimate Team’s best goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders, and strikers.

How to complete Alexandre Pato FIFA 22 Flashback SBC

Alexandre Pato is one of the most electrifying strikers in FIFA 22, and FUT players are going to want to complete his Flashback SBC.

Flashback Pato solution

EA have decided to celebrate the career of Alexandre Pato by releasing a Flashback SBC for the Brazilian striker. Here’s how you can complete Pato’s Ultimate Team SBC and get your hands on an excellent forward.

Ultimate Team players are no stranger to incredible Flashback cards and it seems like Alexandre Pato is the latest to join a growing list that includes Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante.

The fact that Pato currently plays his football in the MLS will make him rather difficult to fit into squads but players should consider making room for him as the striker should be a goal machine leading the line.

Players will be required to submit three squads to get their hands on this Brazilian speedster, and we’ve got the cheapest solution to give you a hand.

When examining Pato’s stats it’s difficult not to like what you see given how well-rounded of a striker he is. We knew that Pato was going to bring top-tier pace and dribbling to the table but his shooting and physical stats are a pleasant surprise.

86 strength and 94 jumping will be incredibly useful in the box while his 90 shot power and 87 finishing will lead to a ton of goals. Pato feels quick and responsive as a forward with mazelike dribbling ability and his 4* skills and weak foot are a huge bonus. If you use Brazilian players, Pato is a no-brainer SBC.

To complete this SBC players will need to give up three squads: Rossoneri, Seleção, and League Finesse. Considering the value, this is an incredibly affordable FIFA 22 SBC, costing about 145,000 coins in total.

You can check out the cheapest solutions below.

Rossoneri requirements

  • # of players from Milan: minimum 1

  • Squad Rating: minimum 85
