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

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.

FIFA 22 FUTTIES: Release date, promo explained, & player leaks

According to FIFA 22 leaks, the FUTTIES promo will be making its way to Ultimate Team shortly along with some of this year’s best cards.

Published

on

A FIFA 22 leaker has revealed that the FUTTIES promo is returning to Ultimate Team this summer as a victory lap celebrating the game mode’s best cards of the year.

FUTTIES isn’t necessarily the final FIFA 22 Ultimate Team promo, but it will symbolically wrap up the title by celebrating some of the best special cards we’ve seen since launch. Players can expect to get their hands on boosted versions of this year’s best special items as they make their way to packs, SBCs, and Objectives.

FUTTIES provides FIFA 22 players with a rare second chance. You can expect to revisit some of the best promo cards of the year that you may have missed out on the first time around.

Here’s everything you need to know about Ultimate Team’s FUTTIES including an explanation of the promo and the expected release date.

FIFA 22 FUTTIES release date

FUTTIES is expected to hit Ultimate Team on Friday, July 8 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST. According to renowned FIFA leaker FutSheriff, FUTTIES will follow Shapeshifters as the next promo that Ultimate Team players could enjoy.

It was previously suggested that Shapeshifters would receive an uncharacteristic Team 4 following Team 3, but as of now, Sheriff claims that the focus will shift to FUTTIES. We’ll let you know when EA officially confirms the promo’s arrival.

FUTTIES FIFA 22 promo explained

The FUTTIES promo is meant to wrap up the Ultimate Team promo calendar by celebrating the best special items of the year. FIFA 22 brought us some truly amazing cards, so here’s a look at how the promo should work.

For starters, Ultimate Team players will have a chance to vote between two previous special cards on any given day. The player who wins the fan vote will not only receive an upgrade but the card will be made available via SBC.

In addition to incredible SBC and Objectives content, some of the best special items from FUT 22 will be re-released. In FIFA 21 there were three batches of re-released FUTTIES teams that appeared in Ultimate Team packs.

FIFA 22 FUTTIES player leaks

FutSherrif has reliably provided details of leaked promo players throughout the entirety of FIFA 22. The leaker’s coverage of FUTTIES should be no different as players are expected to be revealed prior to the July 8 release.

We’ll keep you posted as more information concerning the FIFA 22 FUTTIES promo comes to light. Given that the promo highlights previous special cards that were already in the game, leaks may be difficult to come by, but we’ll update this section accordingly.

FIFA 23 Bundesliga ratings: Every team’s best players predictions

The Bundesliga is expected to supply some of the best players in FIFA 23, so we’ve predicted who will have the highest rating for each club.

Published

on

The Bundesliga will be the battleground for some of FIFA 23’s highest-rated stars, with players from Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund set to impact Ultimate Team. Here are our predictions for the top Bundesliga ratings in FIFA 23, as well as every team’s best players.

Each new FIFA title brings new Ultimate Team ratings based on player performances in the previous season, and FIFA 23 will be no different. To discern which players are deserving of an upgrade or downgrade, EA will analyze the 2021/2022 season.

In Germany, the 2021/2022 Bundesliga season saw Bayern Munich cruise to a tenth straight title. The battle for Champions League spots was a fierce one as Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen, and RB Leipzig should all expect player rating upgrades in FIFA 23.

But who will be the best players in the Bundesliga? We’ve put together our predictions for the top 10 highest-rated Bundesliga players in FIFA 23, and highlighted the best players from each club.

FIFA 23 Bundesliga top 10 player rating predictions

PlayerClubUpgrade / DowngradeRating
Robert LewandowskiBayern Munich92
Sadio ManeBayern Munich+190
Joshua KimmichBayern Munich+190
Manuel NeuerBayern Munich-189
Leon GoretzkaBayern Munich87
Thomas MullerBayern Munich-186
Kingsley ComanBayern Munich86
Filip KosticEintracht Frankfurt +286
Koen CasteelsWolfsburg-185
Christopher NkunkuRB Leipzig+485

It’s been quiet summer so far when it comes to Bundesliga transfers. However, things in Germany can still heat up with the summer transfer window open until September 1.

All eyes will be on Bayern Munich as they look to keep a hold of disgruntled star striker Robert Lewandowski. At this moment, the striker is attempting to force a move to Barcelona, but if he remains, there’s no doubt he’ll be the highest-rated FIFA 23 player in the Bundesliga.

Bayern dominates the predicted list of top ten Bundesliga players in FIFA 23. The illustrious German club won ten Bundesliga titles in a row and they’re the clear powerhouse option to pick up an eleventh straight title in 2023.

Elsewhere, Filip Kostic enjoyed a fantastic season in which Frankfurt secured a Europa League trophy. FIFA 22 delivered a whopping ten separate special Christopher Nkunku cards and the midfielder’s performances should see him rise to 84 or 85 in FIFA 23.

FIFA 23 Bundesliga rating predictions: Every team’s best players

The Bundesliga is dominated by Bayern Munich players when it comes to landing a player in the top 10. Nonetheless, it’s still fascinating to see how EA upgrades and downgrades players from across Germany with each new title. In the 2021/2022 season, every team had both surprises and disappointments that should be reflected when FIFA 23 is released.

With this in mind, we’ve made our predictions for every Bundesliga club’s top three players in FIFA 23:

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch: OTW promo explained & predictions

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch is set to be the first major promo of FUT 23, so here’s everything we know about the event so far.

Published

on

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch is expected to be the first major promo of this season’s Ultimate Team, celebrating the most exciting moves from the summer transfer window. Here’s how FIFA 23 OTW will work, along with the players likely to feature.

Ones to Watch is always one of the most interesting and exciting promos in any FIFA, mainly because it tends to be the very first major event of the year. FIFA 23 will be no exception, as EA look to shine the spotlight on the biggest transfers of the summer.

FIFA 22 OTW was arguably the biggest ever, as both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo switched clubs in a crazy end to the transfer window. While FIFA 23 OTW is unlikely to have as many groundbreaking signings to choose from, some of the game’s highest-rated players have been on the move.

Here’s everything you need to know about FIFA 23 Ones to Watch, from how the cards will work to the players we expect to see.

Is there a FIFA 23 Ones to Watch start date?

EA are yet to confirm when FIFA 23 Ones to Watch will kick off, but we can look at previous years to gain a pretty good idea.

Last year, OTW got underway on October 1, the same day as FIFA 22’s worldwide release. With this in mind, we’d expect FIFA 23 OTW to begin on Friday, September 30, 2022.

This is the expected FIFA 23 release date based on various leaks and the usual schedule, but we’ll add new information to this section once it’s available.

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch explained

FIFA 23 OTW will award special live cards to players who have recently moved to a new club. These dynamic items will go up in rating depending on how well the player performs for their club in real life.

Each time a OTW star is handed a TOTW after a top display in their domestic league, the card will increase in rating and stats to match the most recent one.

For example, in FIFA 22, Dayot Upamecano started out at an 82-rated card after his move to Bayern Munich. But, by the end of the year, he was 87-rated and one of the best center-backs that the Bundesliga had to offer.

They will also receive an extra +1 boost for winning a certain number of matches after the promo begins. Last year, the threshold was five wins out of 10 games after October 2.

We’ll update this section with more specific information once EA officially announces the promo.

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch predictions

The summer transfer window is far from closed, but we’ve already seen some major signings that are a shoo-in to be a FIFA 23 OTW. On top of that, there are plenty of deals that are on the verge of going through that will surely make the cut.

Here are our predictions for FIFA 23 Ones to Watch so far:

Player NameTransferTransfer Confirmed?Predicted Rating
Robert LewandowskiBayern Munich to BarcelonaNo92
Erling HaalandBorussia Dortmund to Manchester CityYes90
Sadio ManeLiverpool to Bayern MunichYes90

We’ll be keeping this page up to date with all the latest confirmed transfers that we think will make the cut in FIFA 23 Ones to Watch, so be sure to keep checking back.
