FIFA 23 is one of the most popular games of the year. The most played part of the game is FIFA Ultimate Team. WANT editor Jeroen Kraak is a true fan of the game and tells you what you need to know before getting started with Ultimate Team.
The new FIFA game is annual fare for me. I play with my friends and by now I can enjoy myself quite a few hours with the career mode, Ted Lasso and Ultimate Team. The latter mode is also in FIFA 23. However, it is a little different than what you are used to.
The 5 tips for Ultimate Team in FIFA 23
The most important thing in Ultimate Team is, of course, getting the best players. I give you five ways by which you can simply score the best in FIFA 23.
#1 Play, play, play
Of course, it is easy to buy a lot of packs by spending a lot of money on Ultimate Team. It’s certainly not necessary. Just play quite a few Division Rivals and Squad Battles. That second mode is interesting if you don’t want to play online against other opponents right away.
Choose a higher difficulty level if you are playing against a bad team. This way you will gain a lot of points. This is because the ranking after the number of matches played determines what kind of reward you get. These are coins and free packs of players.

#2 Do the FUT moments
This is new in Ultimate Team in FIFA 23, in which you play different challenges in single player. If you complete them, you get FUT Stars for doing so. With these Stars you can in turn buy player cards. This way you can get great cards for your team without spending money!
#3 Squid Building Challenges in FIFA 23
These are Ultimate Team puzzles in FIFA 23 where you have to build an elf. Fortunately, there are quite a few solutions on the Internet, so you don’t have to mess around yourself. Just buy the players listed on the solution. Of course, other players also read this so the cards for that particular solution may be more expensive.
Then just look for players similar to them. For example, think of the same nationality or league, which are not in the solution. These are often a lot cheaper.
#4 Keep an eye on the market in Ultimate Team
To get the best possible Ultimate Team, you need to buy and sell player cards in FIFA 23. But what is the right price of a player? There are several databases on the Internet with all the players and the average prices in them. That way you know exactly what to expect.
In addition, some players are cheaper or more expensive after a certain time. Are you drawing a good player card now? Then it’s a good idea to wait a while before selling. After the first Weekend League it rises significantly in price, because then players will have more to spend and the market will be even more buoyant.
#5 Silver is the new gold
The prices of gold cards tend to stay fairly constant in Ultimate Team, while there are more variables in rare silver cards. These are less in the game, causing prices to fluctuate. Search the databases for the average price and try to “snip” these cards cheaper. That way you can soon make reasonable profits in FIFA 23.
