FIFA U Team was founded by RODRIGO LOPES. It’s him who has the main role in this project.
Born in Funchal, Portugal, in the late 70s, he started very early in the world of technology and computer games. He surfs in the internet since 1997 and plays FIFA since the first game of the franchise.
RL, an engineer, loves computers, games, photography, football and cinema.
Despite a vast experience in similar projects, FIFA U Team was his first major challenge open to the community.

OWEN MACDONALD is a 25 year old from London, United Kingdom and supports Fulham FC.
Whilst a relative newcomer to the Ultimate Team franchise, having created his first team in FUT 13, Owen’s passion and ever growing knowledge of the footballing world has led to a love for FUT. His enthusiasm for the game is not matched by many, and if asked will gladly talk about FUT and football on the whole for hours.
Away from football Owen is a keen writer and enjoys politics and cinema.
On a daily quest for football news, with a new copy of FIFA on tow, (which he was struggling to grasp), SEAN O’DOHERTY came across a facebook page that he could only describe as doorway to a website that he described at the time as “Science for FIFA games”. A message later and the rest is history.
Sean has been obsessed with football from birth, born into a family of avid Celtic supporting maniacs, he could never escape the desire for football – watching, playing and learning about it in anyway possible.
He was a devout blogger of now defunct “The Celtic Blog”, it gained a large cult following and Sean thrived in the opinionated environment.
After a long journey through the educational ranks – degree honours in Sports Journalism and a masters degree in multimedia he now rests his hat here to give his all on the editorial side.
He can be found watching football, trying to master FUT or spending quality time with his family.

After many years playing football simulators, he is now reading and writing about football. You can find him on facebook, twitter and azubu.
PEDRO COELHO is a 21 year old from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, who was never really encouraged to like football. Despite that, he became a big football enthusiast and a passionate Botafogo fan over his teenage years.
He’s been playing Ultimate Team since FIFA 12 and still doubts there will ever exist another football fantasy game as good as this.
Whilst being a Computer Engineering student who loves video games, football and bodybuilding, he takes a bit of his spare time to translate FIFA-related articles from Portuguese to English (and eventually the other way around) for he also enjoys being in contact with the English language. Moving to England is his biggest dream.
