How to Play Champions League in FIFA 15

FIFA 15 Champions League

There is no official UEFA Champions League tournament in FIFA 15 as EA Sports do not have the license for it. But, using the Tournament Mode in FIFA 15, you can setup a tournament similar to UEFA Champions League and simulate the tournament in FIFA 15 game.

Before we go and create a UEFA CL tournament in FIFA 15, lets just review the current UEFA Champions League (2014/2015) teams and groups, and most importantly, see which current UEFA CL teams are not available in FIFA 15:

GROUP A
– Club Atletico de Madrid (Spain)
– Olympiacos FC (Greece)
– Juventus (Italy)
– Malmo FF (Sweden)
GROUP B
– Real Madrid (Spain)
– FC Basel (Switzerland)
– Liverpool FC (England)
Ludogorets Razgrad (Not Available)


GROUP C
– Bayer 04 Leverkusen (Germany)
– AS Monaco (France)
– FC Zenit (Russia)
– Benfica (Portugal)
GROUP D
– Borussia Dortmund (Germany)

As you can see above, there are 4 teams that are not available in FIFA 15. You can replace these teams with some other teams from the rest of the world teams or any other leagues you like. Here is our suggestion for the replacement:

– Ludogorets Razgrad > Panathinaikos (Rest of the World)
– APOEL > PAOK (Rest of the World)
– Maribor > Rangers (Rest of the World)
– BATE Borisov > Amkar Perm (Russian League)

After deciding on this, you can start setting up UEFA CL tournament in FIFA 15 by following these steps:
FIFA 15 UEFA Champions League Tournament

Go to PLAY > CUSTOM TOURNAMENT menu in FIFA 15.
Select tournament type Group & Knockout
Set number of teams to 32
Auto fill teams option should be set to NO
You can name the tournament UEFA CL
Advanced setting should be turned ON

Now go advance and do the following changes:
FIFA 15 UEFA Champions League

Subs on Bench: 5
Select Cup: Cup 5
Final Stadium: Olympiastadion
Final Match Legs: 1
Teams Per Group: 4
Teams Advancing / Group: 2
Fixtures v Group Teams: 2
Knockout Round Fixtures: 2

Then go ahead and select the teams as the above group list. After this, re-arrange the group as the current UEFA Champions League standings shown above.

Now you can save your tournament and enjoy the game!

  1. Hi

    i am running a real life fifa 15 tournament but is it possible to create a custom tournament where players can choose the same team?

    any help would be appreciated

  2. Also another thing I don’t like about FIFA is when you play tournament mode and chose Premier League, La Liga, etc. there is no Trophy Presentation after you win the League.

  3. Customizing takes time but it’s better than nothing. I am creating this cup and Copa America, sucks that a lot of teams from South America countries are missing, I am including North America and Mexico teams to replace that.

  4. ─░ts so ridiculous because champions league is an uefas organisation and this games name is fifa ,but we cant play champions league in the official fifa game.Ea sports must take this liscense and uefa must help to ea sports for this liscense . Fifa players want see champions league in the fifa 16. Pes is worst game in the world and i am a champions league fan. I want play champions league in the fifa
