Deep Dive - FC Pro Draft

How it works

With FC Pro Draft, competitors will be set a budget in coins that they must adhere to. For the weekend’s FC Pro Open Global Qualifier, the budget was set at 8,000,000 coins. Competitors needed to build a full squad – their starting XI and subs – that stays within this budget and submit it before the deadline. 

The cost of each player item is set based on the in-game transfer market price of the item. The prices will be locked at a certain time each week and players will use those to build their squads.

In addition to the coin budget, competitors may also be set additional requirements they must meet with their squad. This can include incorporating player items from events in Ultimate Team such as Trailblazers or Centurions as well as requirements that highlight players from specific leagues and nations.

Over the course of FC Pro 24, we’ll see a variety of Draft requirements that will really allow competitors to flex their squad building muscles.

What is FC Pro Draft? 

FC Pro Draft is a new way for competitors in our global FC Pro competitions to select their squads.  Competitors will be given a budget and based on transfer market values of player items, pick a squad within that budget for use in the competition.
