The first round of FIFA 22 FUT Champions Finals (FUT Weekend League) starts from Friday, 8 October 2021.
This year, EA switched to a points-based system for FUT Champs in FIFA 22, meaning you may still proceed even if you lose. The changes to Champions are designed to achieve a balance between past time obligations and a competitive experience and prizes.
To qualify to FUT Champs, you need to collect 1,500 Qualification Points by playing FUT Rivals.
Check out the FUT Champions Rewards.
FUT Champs Qualification
Earn FUT Champions Qualification Points in Division Rivals to get entrance to FUT Champions. You’ll be immediately entered into the Play-Offs after you’ve earned enough points, and your Champions run for that spot may begin whenever you’re ready.
The Champions Play-Offs are the first stage of the overall FUT Champions competition, and they last for about 6 weeks. On their own time, players go through a limited number of games, earning points toward Champions Ranks and Rewards. These are given out at the conclusion of your Champions Play-Offs run.
FUT Champions Finals (Weekend League)
The FUT Champions Finals will take place on weekends, following the same format as the FIFA 21 Weekend League. The Finals Qualification Token allows you to enter the competition whenever you choose.
Re-Qualification and Entry
There is a limited entrance system has been added to the Champions Qualification process, allowing you to choose when and how you compete in FUT Champions. You will have a limited number of attempts at the Champions Competition throughout each FUT Season, which lasts about 6 weeks, with a single entry good for an attempt at the Champions Play-Offs and a Champions Final if you qualify.
With the addition of the Play-Offs and Finals, one of our objectives was to rebalance the awards across all competition stages while lowering the total match requirements. When you first enter the Play-Offs, you’re competing for the first round of rewards as well as a chance to advance to the Finals, where you can earn even more.
Your additional awards will be determined by where you finish in the Finals. You can claim your awards right now if you finish all of your matches in the Finals. If you have any further matches to play, your awards will be given at the end of the competition, based on your final standing.
Here is the type of rewards given to FUT Champions qualified players:
The matchmaking in FUT Champions matches are based on two factors:
- The result of your first 5 ranking matches (known as Placement Matches)
- Your location
When you first join a Weekend League, you are offered five matches to complete in order to be placed in the rankings. The results of these five matches, which are either a win, a loss, or a draw, are factored into your weekend matching. Players with similar results are paired in matchmaking. The second factor is location. To ensure quality matches, players are matched based on their geographical location and proximity to EA servers.
