FUT Draft or Draft Mode is a competition mode in FUT 21 which gives you a series of four matches that can be played offline or online. To enter a FUT Draft competition you need to either spend 15,000 FIFA coins / 300 FIFA points or unlock it with a FUT Draft Token.
How to Play
FUT Draft mode is available under Single Player and Online tabs in FUT 21. A FUT Draft entry (offline or online) costs 15k coins or 300 FIFA points, you can also unlock it if you have a FUT Draft token.
After the entry, you will be asked to choose your game difficulty and your squad’s formation by choosing between five different formations. After choosing your formation, your first player decision is to select a Captain from a set of five superstars. Then, you need to fill out the rest of your 23-man squad by picking players for each position from a random draw of five players.
Finally, you will need to choose your manager from a random selection of five managers. The formation, players and manager you pick will remain as your default selections throughout the series of matches. Your squad will have Team Chemistry and Team Rating which will affect your gameplay on the pitch. Your team’s kits, ball and stadiums will be your last selected ones in FUT.
A FUT Draft competition series contains four knockout matches to play. You need a win to qualify to the next match, which means a loss will eliminate your team out of the series. 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.
As you progress throughout the competition, you will earn better rewards. FUT Draft rewards are including packs, coins and Draft Mode Token. Winning four matches in a row will earn the best rewards possible. Even if you lose your first match you will still receive a reward. Online Draft Mode has reportedly better rewards in compare to Single Player Draft Mode. Here is a list of possible you could get by playing a FUT Draft competition.
