FUT Champions is a way to test your skill across two stages of competition—the Play-Offs and the Finals. Compete to earn exciting rewards and show off your skills on the pitch.
The Play-Offs is the first stage of FUT Champions. It’s open the entire duration of the FUT Season, so you can take it at your own pace.
There are a limited number of Play-Off entries per FUT Season, which you can see in-game. This limit resets with the start of each new Season, which usually occurs every 6 weeks.
Play Division Rivals to earn Champions Qualification Points (CQP). When you reach the required number of CQP to enter the Play-Offs, you will be automatically entered into the current event. You can see how much CQP is required to qualify for Play-Offs by checking in-game.
Find your FUT Champions Qualification Points balance in-game:
You can also enter the Rivals tile, then select the Champions tab to see your total there.
You’ll get rewards once you finish the available amount of matches (maximum of 10) in the competition. You can also choose to end your current Play-Offs event at any point, even before completing all your matches, allowing you to collect the available rewards immediately. If you don't finish all your Play-Off matches before a FUT Season ends, you’ll automatically get whatever rewards you have earned from the matches that you did complete.
You can check your progression in-game, and see what the requirements and rewards are for each Rank.
The Finals are the second stage of FUT Champions. Check in-game for the latest schedule as Finals events are only open at limited times.
You qualify for the FUT Champions Finals by earning enough points in the FUT Champions Play-Offs to get a Finals Qualification Token. You’ll then choose when you want to participate in the Finals by spending the Token.
You’ll get rewards as soon as you complete the amount of available matches or when the event expires, whichever happens first.
However, unlike the Play-Offs, you can’t end a Finals event early. There’s also a much tighter time limit for Finals events. If you haven’t completed all of your matches before it ends, you’ll get the rewards for what you’ve earned.
You can choose when to redeem your Champions Finals Qualification Token, but when you do, it will enter you into the next available Champions Finals event. Make sure only to redeem your Finals Token when you’re ready to play your matches.
To redeem your Token, enter the FUT Champions Mode and follow the instructions on-screen.
Didn’t use your Finals Token by the end of a Season? Don’t worry, it carries over to the next Season.
Your entry into this competition is final and can’t be reversed.
Matchmaking in FUT Champions Play-Offs and Finals is based on two things:
Your Form in FUT Champions Play-Offs and Finals (respectively) is a record of all the matches that you have played in the current competition. You start every competition with your Form at 0, and it changes based on your results.
Here’s an example. Say the results of your first five games of a Play-Offs run were W/L/L/W/W.
Your Form after those five matches would end up at +1. That’s because you gain +1 for each win and lose -1 for each loss.
In FUT Champions Play-Offs, your Form can be as low as -8 and as high as +8.
In FUT Champions Finals, your Form can be as low as -15 and as high as +15.
You can only matchmake with players who are playing the same version of FIFA 22 as you, on the same console family. For example, if you are playing the PlayStation 4 version of FIFA 22, you could matchmake with someone playing the PlayStation 4 version of FIFA 22 on PlayStation 5. In this scenario, you can’t matchmake with someone playing the PlayStation 5 version of FIFA 22. The same applies to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, while PC players can only matchmake with each other.
There is no cross-play across different platform families in FIFA 22, meaning that PlayStation, Xbox, and PC players can’t matchmake with one another.
The available rewards for each competition are listed in-game and can be seen by viewing your competition progress in-game.
