FIFA 23 Ultimate Team is set to be revealed this month and should feature plenty of changes to the way we play the game mode. One of the biggest features in competitive FUT is the FUT Champions mode, where players go into Weekend League with their best teams and play dozens of matches in a set time period to unlock exclusive rewards.

FUT Champions received a full remodel in FIFA 22, and the revamp of the mode got positive feedback from FIFA fans. While we wait for EA Sports to reveal the new changes to the FUT Champions format and rewards, here are our predictions on what to expect.

FIFA 23 FUT Champions: Format Predictions

Based on the reception of the new Weekend League format in FIFA 22, we don't expect too many changes to come for the FUT Champions format in FIFA 23.

Weekend League will likely be playable any day of the week again in FIFA 23, once you qualify for it of course. Perhaps the requirements to qualify will change to allow more players to hop into the competition, however, there isn't too much expected to change in the new FUT Champions.

FIFA 23 FUT Champions: Reward Predictions

This is where many would argue that FUT Champions needs to change in FIFA 23. For years the FUT Champions reward system has been a weak one, offering very few good rewards outside of big packs. This goes hand-in-hand with the TOTW format in FUT, with many calling the TOTWs pointless after the first few months in FUT.

If TOTW items in FIFA 23 received better upgrades, not on a linear upgrade path, they would be more sought after not just on the transfer market, but as rewards in FUT Champions, hence making the game mode more engaging. Additionally, putting promo cards in the pack pool of Reds like they do during TOTS would also be better for FUT Champions, and since we've seen it more often in FIFA 22, we may see this come into play on Day 1 in FIFA 23.

FIFA 23 is set to release worldwide for PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Windows PC and Stadia on Sept. 30. The Ultimate Team Reveal is set to come on Aug. 11.
