FUT Draft or Draft Mode is a competition mode in FIFA Ultimate Team which gives you a series of four matches that can be played offline or online. Entry for a FUT Draft competition series costs 15,000 coins, 300 FIFA Points or 1 Draft Token which can be found in packs.
In FUT Draft mode, you will be given a limited random selection of players, managers and formations to build up your squad for the entire competition series instead of using your own FUT squads. Finishing a Draft Mode competition will cause you to receive some rewards including packs and coins. The further you progress in the competition, the better rewards you get.
Draft Mode added to FIFA Ultimate Team first in FIFA 16.
FUT Draft Mode is available in Single Player and Online modes. In Single Player mode you will play against the AI while in Online mode you will play against other players online. Each mode has its own entry.
You will get four knockout matches to play in the Draft mode. You need a win to qualify to the next match, which means a loss will knock you out of the competition. The higher you go, the more stronger opponent you will face and the higher you finish in the competition, the bigger the rewards will be.
