Two brand new modes, called FUT Champions and Squad Building Challenges, have been revealed for Ultimate Team in FIFA 17.
FUT Champions is the most significant addition. It involves players winning daily knockout matches to enter the Weekend League. During each weekend, players will attempt to win a certain number of matches to climb the Monthly Leaderboard. Consistent performances over multiple weekends will see players move up the leaderboard. Rewards for winning FUT Champions matches will feature some of the best items in the game.
Squad Building Challenges will reward players for building interesting or themed teams. Players will be given a certain team to build (based on nationality or league) and when they have completed each team they will be given rewards such as player cards, packs, or coins. There will also be some items that are unique to the mode. Players can also build teams on the FIFA 17 companion app.
FIFA 17 will be available on September 29, 2016.
