FIFA 22 Division Rivals

Division Rivals is the core online mode in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team and one of the main sources of valuable packs and coins. Here’s our guide on how the mode works, the rewards, ranks, and some tips on how to climb the ladder.

While FUT Champions is home to FIFA 22’s best packs, Division Rivals is the Ultimate Team mode where players spend the majority of their time.

The weekly rewards structure makes it the best easiest way to keep a steady stream of new players coming to your club.

EA revamped Division Rivals for FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, so here’s everything you need to know about its structure, ranks, and rewards.

FIFA 22 Division Rivals format

FIFA 22 Son Heung-min

In FIFA 22, EA has scrapped the old structure for Division Rivals and replaced it with one that asks fans to play fewer games to earn rewards.

Players can now take part in as many games as they want per week but need to secure three wins for standard rewards, or seven for upgraded rewards.

All players start in Division 10, and each win also moves them up a notch on the Rivals leaderboard, while a loss moves them back down and a draw holds their position.

Players who get on a roll and win three games in a row are handed a win streak boost, meaning they move up two places per win instead of one.

Division Rivals rank

The aim every week is to bag three or seven wins, while also landing in the highest rank in the highest division possible.

There are three ranks within every division, each with incrementally better rewards than the last. The packs and coins offered also increase dramatically as you climb the divisions.

Within each division, there are also a number of checkpoints. If you reach one of these notches, it means you cannot fall back any lower no matter how many games are lost.

Rank 3 in every division has a checkpoint attached, so it is impossible to be relegated once you reach a new level.

At the end of the in-game season, all players are returned to Division 10 to start over.

If you still aren’t breaking a sweat in Division 1, then the new Elite Divison might be where you feel at home.

This is a new addition for FIFA 22, where the game’s very best players compete for incredible rewards.

Here, the mode returns to the Skill Rating system from FIFA 21, with the top 200 displayed on a leaderboard in all their glory.

To qualify, you simply need to win enough games in a row to escape from Division 1 and into the top tier of Rivals.

When are Division Rivals rewards released in FIFA 22?

  • 1 AM PDT
  • 2 AM CDT

Every new rank in Division Rivals has three different options to choose from when it comes to rewards – each with a different combination of tradeable and untradeable packs, and some coins thrown in for good measure.

Luckily, you don’t have to choose which option to take until you physically go in to claim your rewards.

FIFA 22 Division Rivals tips

Player shooting in FIFA 22

The difficulty ramps up quickly in Division Rivals, especially when you hit the higher leagues, so it’s important to be at your best in every game.

With this in mind, we’ve put together our top tips for how to achieve FUT Rivals glory:

  • Custom Tactics – Make sure you have both defensive and offensive tactics set up to adapt to every possible situation
  • Take your time – The fact you can’t be relegated in Rivals means its easy to get stuck in divison that is too difficult, so be too eager to climb the ranks straight away
  • Wait for checkpoints to change your team – You’ll want to keep updating your squad, but wait until you’ve secured the next rank to start experimenting and reduce the risk of slipping down
  • Impact subs – Make sure your substitutes offer something different to the players in your starting XI. For example, if you play with pacey striker, leave a target man on the bench just in case.
  • A draw isn’t a loss – Sometimes you get matched against a player is just better than you, so don’t be afraid to play for a draw. You won’t lose your position and you can move on to the next one.

That was our guide on how Division Rivals works in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, as well as some tips to help you progress.

After another game week packed with huge results and great performances, EA is set to release Team of the Week 12 into FIFA 22 Ultimate Team this Wednesday, so here are our predictions of who will make the cut in the FUT TOTW this time around.

Each and every week, EA drops the Team of the Week into FIFA 22 Ultimate Team to reward the stars who made the headlines in the previous round of fixtures.

The Team of the Week arrives in packs every Wednesday at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT, with an announcement from EA usually coming shortly before.

TOTW cards replace the normal cards of the player in packs for the duration of the week, meaning that the TOTW is the only version it is possible to pack for seven days.

Each wave of in-forms remains in packs until they are replaced by the next Team of the Week on the following Wednesday.

The group stage of Europe’s three major club competitions is coming to a close. Ultimate Team fans can expect to get their hands on the Team of the Group Stage promo. Here’s when you can expect to test these new items as well as every player in TOTGS.

This year, football fans have had the pleasure of watching three European club competitions as opposed to two. The newly created Conference League joined the likes of the UEFA Champions League, and Europa League. Each year, EA Sports celebrates the most dominant players amongst these European competitions through the Team of the Group Stage promotion

The top performers across these three competitions are set to be honored in FIFA 22. With massive clubs involved, players can expect to get their hands on some excellent cards. Here’s when FIFA 22 Ultimate Team players can expect Team of the Group Stage as well as the players up for grabs. 

Team of the Group Stage Ultimate Team release date

FIFA 22 TOTGS release date

After receiving some incredibly useful cards through the Signature Signings promo, Ultimate Team players are eager to see what’s next. The last matchday of European club competitions is set to take place next week between December 6-8. 

It turns out EA has decided to release the promo before the last matches are complete. They are wasting no time in getting new content to players across Ultimate Team. 

December 3 is the date to mark on your calendar. On Friday, December 3 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT / 8 PM CEST, keep an eye out for the new promo. 

For players with poor pack luck, rest assured you’ll have a chance to snap up one or two of these players through SBCs and objectives

FIFA 22 Team of the Group Stage card design

As with past TOTGS promos we’ve seen, the card design isn’t going to display significant differences from the RTTK promo. So far, we’ve seen the TOTGS through leaks. The one major difference is the direction of the line designs in the background. 

The RTTK cards all looked fantastic therefore EA probably won’t be changing much. The lime green of the Conference League certainly pops on screen.

  • Sébastien Haller (Ajax) *SBC*

Chelsea players celebrating in FIFA 22

It’s time for another FIFA 22 Team of the Week. In FIFA 22 TOTW 11, there are some huge names for people to add to their teams and we’ve got all the details listed for you.

Ultimate Team remains the most popular mode in the FIFA series. One of the many reasons for this is incorporating real-world football into its addictive gameplay loop through special cards, such as Icons or the new FUT Heroes.

One of the mode’s oldest promotions is ‘Team of the Week’, which offers players a weekly batch of upgraded cards, based on real-life player performances the previous week, to help build out their squads.

We’ll be updating this hub with the latest FIFA 22 TOTW news, so be sure to check back here every week.

Here are the full updates for FIFA 22’s Team of the Week 11.

FIFA 22 FUT TOTW 11

The FIFA 22 TOTW 11 is here, and it’s full of big names from across the world. For those who like to try out new cards and have the funds to do so, FIFA’s TOTW is great.

Check out the full squad for the FIFA 22 TOTW 11 here.

What are TOTW cards in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team?

Team of the Week items are special cards that boost stats based on that player’s performance in the previous week of real-world games. Any player awarded an in-form will see both their ratings and in-game stats get a permanent increase.

Every week, EA unveils a 23-man squad of the stars who had the best games in the previous domestic or international fixtures round. They could be awarded for a last-minute winner in a big game or a heroic performance from a goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet.

Each TOTW is available in packs for an entire week until it is replaced by the next squad on the following Wednesday. Player’s can not receive an in-form two weeks in a row.

While an in-form card is in packs, it replaces the base version of that player. The normal card will return to packs when that TOTW is over.

In FIFA 22, EA has addressed fans’ complaints that TOTW items are often quickly rendered useless by the other promotional cards added to the game throughout the year.

Every week, one player will receive a special Featured TOTW card. These players will receive a larger boost than the rest of the squad in an attempt to make them more desirable to those building their teams.

To qualify for this additional stat-boost, the player must have a base card that is under 80-rated and not have any other performance-based card in packs – such as a Ones to Watch.

When is the TOTW released?

Historically, EA announces the latest TOTW every Wednesday so that any Monday night games can be considered.

Each new team is normally Tweeted out around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT with a full look at every upgrade.
