    Best FIFA 16 League to Play

    What is the Best FIFA 16 League to Play ?

    The main football league in England works as basis for most FIFA 16 Ultimate Team squads out there. Why does that happen? The main reason has to do with most FUT 16 players’ origins being linked to it, the league is considered the most spectacular professional football league in the world. But there are more reasons. Actually this is one of the best leagues to choose for a squad because although it’s not the one with the best players in the game, it’s got more quality players than any other. You have too many choices and potential variations to exercise, it means you can easily find a great team according to your taste. The fact that the best players in the world are from other leagues is probably not a disadvantage because they’re so expensive that few people are able to buy them. The BPL still has got one more advantage: the fact that it has many players from other countries makes it easier for hybrid teams to be built based on it.

    Basically, you can say the only big disadvantage of building a squad based on Premier League players is their high price. No other league has average prices as high as this one. Since the demand is bigger than the supply, the players’ prices raise and surpass what you’d pay for equivalent players from other leagues.


    Many quality options

    La Liga is also one of the top leagues, but not just because it’s got elite players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Neymar, Gareth Bale and Luis Suárez. This is the mandatory squad league for people with an unlimited budget on FUT 16. Just the five players mentioned above will form almost half a team with a quality level you won’t find anywhere else. However there are few game players who can afford such players when building a squad. Even for a somewhat limited budget, the Spanish league comes out as a good option mainly because you can build a squad as good as a BPL by spending way less coins. One of the good things about this league is that all positions are occupied by players that offer guaranteed quality.

    Whoever decides to build a team based on this league will surely find a big variety of choices, much quality and relatively high prices. In our opinion, it’s more appropriate for people who want to build a squad with no cost restrictions, but it’s also a great alternative to the BPL whilst being more accessible. The league is also a great one for hybrid teams since there are many Spanish players out there playing in the best European leagues.

    Thanks to all the success of German clubs in the European competitions, most notably FC Bayern, the Bundesliga has climbed to a remarkable spot, player quality wise, in the last few years. This is obviously not the only reason why the main German football league is, at the moment, the third most used league in FIFA 16 Ultimate Team. It always has good solutions for every – or almost every – position, with a more accessible price than the BPL. In previous years this price difference was even more notorious, but the league’s popularity rose and its players got a bit more expensive. Still, it’s possible for you to build an excellent squad based on the Bundesliga with less than 1 million coins. Even for those with superior budget there’s always the possibility of improvement, calling on players such as Robben and Ribery, for example. If these numbers are too big for you, we advise you to move on to another league.

    Do you feel like you can’t gather the coins necessary to build a squad based on one of the three leagues we described previously? Don’t worry. The Serie A allows you to start from low or medium spending capacity while that doesn’t mean a significant quality loss. It is no doubt the best league regarding price vs quality for you to face any opponent head-to-head. Even with you not being able to reach an 85 squad rating, which you won’t, you definitely won’t fail to have a good squad, plus you’ll have that with the advantage of not carrying the responsibility of owning the most expensive teams. The prices are somewhat attractive in a way that all the league’s best players together cost less than Messi.

    Among the five leagues given as the most popular ones, the Ligue 1 is clearly the weakest. It’s relatively cheap, such as the Serie A, but it doesn’t offer quality solutions for all positions like the Italian league does. You just have to take a look at the centre backs to realise you’ll need to make a few adaptations in order to build a sufficiently competitive squad based on this league.

    People who want to build a strong team based on the French league will be forced to use Paris Saint-Germain players. They fill the league’s tough core. Names like Thiago Silva, Matuidi or Ibrahimovic are an absolute choice for any team. However, especially Zlatans price is not affordable by most game players. There are alternatives but the truth is that they’re never as good as, for example, what you get in the Serie A.

    Other Leagues


    If your budget is low, there are leagues that can be quite useful to you. Here are the Portuguese, Russian and Turkish leagues. Having them as base, you’ll be able to build minimally competitive squads with just a portion of your coins. The biggest problem you might come to find is player choice as there are not many. Since there are less players in these leagues, some positions can’t be occupied by players of the same quality as the rest, there is a point where you might have to call on silver or even bronze players. This is particularly noticed when it comes to defenders. Unbalanced but yet interesting squads can be frequently seen.

    Besides the low cost, these leagues have also the advantage of causing your opponent to underestimate you or have too much confidence. Although some of these teams can turn out to be very interesting, you’ll hardly be able to face the best teams effectively.


    Really cheap squads
    Lack of quality players in a few positions
    Less top-class players than in the other five leagues




    Building a squad based on only one nationality is probably going to lead you to limited choices and, in most players’ opinions, this is less fun. However, these teams can easily be adapted to hybrids. Three nationalities are in the spotlight for they currently have quality players in all positions: Spanish, Brazilian and German.

    The Spanish’s popularity has rose immensely in the last few years, mainly after their World Cup and European titles. Such exposition made many good players of this nationality play not only in the BBVA league but also in the BPL, Bundesliga and Serie A. This is something particularly good because it offers us the possibility of easily building hybrid teams with Spanish players.

    After being world champions, the main German players have had their stats rise remarkably. Although that wasn’t enough for them to effectively reach the Spanish, their great performance led several people to build squads based on this nationality.

    There’s a whole difference in this case, now: Brazilian players. They’re internationally known as the ones who revealed the biggest number of great players. Although the Brazilian league’s been excluded from the game you still have an immense variety of choices, after all they’re the ones present in all FIFA 16 Ultimate Team leagues. Which is good. This nationality is particularly good for building teams of any category: gold, silver or bronze.

    Besides these nationalities, there are a few others that can offer you an at least interesting squad: Argentinian, Colombian and French.

  1. Hey Rodrigo,

    I will have around 500k what league should I do and what formation currently was using 41212-2 but been using 4321, 433-4 and 41212 wide.


  2. Hola Rodrigo!

    Actualmente siguiendo tus recomendaciones he armado dos equipos híbridos que quisiera mejorar. Preferiblemente en estas recomendaciones no incluir jugadores costosos como Messi, Ronaldo o mas de 300k por un jugador, al menos que la venta de algunos de los actuales sea recomendada. La plataforma es PC.

    1- http://www.futhead.com/16/squads/8527669/

    2- http://www.futhead.com/16/squads/8528080/

    Los goleadores y con mas asistencias de estas alineaciones son Tevez, Reus, Lacazette y Aubameyang. Los nuevos en la plantilla con unos diez partidos son James, Modric y Bale, el que ha resultado mas efectivo en cuanto goles y asistencias ha sido Modric y el peor es James, sin goles ni asistencias hasta ahora.

    Gracias por tus excelentes recomendaciones

      • No, he venido armando los equipos de acuerdo a tus recomendaciones y siguiendo tus artículos! Por ejemplo no encontraba un RM-RW y me recomendaste a Hulk, ya que no contaba con las monedas para Robben, luego compre a Robben pero no era tan efectivo para mi como Reus y te pregunte si Bale era una mejor opción y dijiste que si. Ahora la pregunta es diferente, te pregunto sobre las dos alineaciones en general, una vez te pregunte sobre dos alineaciones aunque tienen una formación parecida son muy distintas, soo conservan algunos jugadores como Tevez, Manolas, Alves, Vidal del resto han cambiado.

  3. I am reposting my comment here because I realized BPL comments were closed so sorry for that.

    SIF Sanchez or NIF Hazard?

    TIF RM De Bruyne or SIF Shaqiri?

    SIF Mesut or None Inform David silva or IF Santi cazorla

    IF Koscielny or NIF Kompany

    Muchas Gracias por tu ayuda.

  5. Hey Rodrigo,

    I just packed Messi today and am very excited to play with him. Would you be able to advise what type of squad you would build, say with a 600k budget? Please let me know how you would proceed.

    All the best,


  6. So I have 1.5M coins. I am stuck between 3 choices.. Bundesliga – Liga BBVA – BPL

    I am going to spend all my money on 1 league and make a really cheap team with the other and improve it on the way. So that is 2 leagues. Which one do you suggest me to spend all my money, and which do you suggest me to build a cheap squad around it and improve it on the way? BTW I am never going to get Ronaldo and Messi, I would have built a BBVA 😀

    Thanks Rodrigo. Another great guide as always.

    • Thank you Jones.
      I love BPL because there are so many choices. It is my opinion, yours can be different. As backup squad I think the best one is Serie A. With a small budget you can build a very strong team.
