The Best Leagues to Play on FIFA 21

How to pick the right league to play?

Every single year, several players ask us our opinion about which league should they pick to build their squad. The answer is not easy and depends on many factors, including your budget, play style, preferences, favourite formation and the amount of time you plan to play. In order to give you extra help, we decided to create this article showing the strong and weak points for each one of the most popular leagues.

Premier League

Complete analysis of this league can be found here

The main football league in England works as basis for most FIFA 21 Ultimate Team squads out there. Why does that happen? First, because it’s where more people play the game. Besides that, this 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 to a FIFA 21 squad because it’s the one with more quality players. You have so many choices and potential variations to exercise, which means you can easily find a great team according to your preferences. The fact that some of 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 Premier League 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.

Timo Werner, Alex Telles, Gareth Bale and Allan were nice additions to this league.

 
STRONG AND WEAK POINTS
Many quality options
Easier to build Hybrids
Challenger
Most expensive league

La Liga

Complete analysis of this league can be found here

La Liga is also one of the top leagues, but not just because it’s got elite players such as Sergio Ramos, Eden Hazard, Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez. This is the mandatory squad league for people with an unlimited budget on FUT 21. 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 Premier League 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 Premier League 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.

This year, LaLiga didn’t have any important addition. However, some of the existing players are now much better improving the quality of this league.

 
STRONG AND WEAK POINTS
It has some of the best players in the world
Good for hybrids
Strong goalkeepers
Expensive

Serie A

Complete analysis of this league can be found here

Do you feel like you can’t gather the coins necessary to build a squad based on one of the two 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 FIFA 21 league regarding price vs quality for you to face any opponent head-to-head. Even with you not being able to reach an 87 squad rating, 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.

This is basically a league with a defensive style and many options to the centre of the midfield. Even with the addition of Douglas Costa and Hakimi, the biggest problem of this league is still the lack of good wingers. If you plan to build a squad based on this league, try to avoid the use of formations with wingers. If you have a good amount of coins you can also buy Cristiano Ronaldo, the best FIFA 21 player. He is probably the strongest reason to see so many people building squads from this league.

 
STRONG AND WEAK POINTS
Best value for money for the biggest five leagues
Many high-quality choices on the centre of the midfield
It has the best player in the game
Difficult to create a squad as good as the top-squads from the other two leagues
It doesn’t have good fullbacks, especially on the right side.

Bundesliga

Complete analysis of this league can be found here

The German league is no longer the third most used league in FIFA Ultimate Team. It always has good solutions for almost every position, except RBs, with a more accessible price than the Premier League but there are not many replacements for the top-quality players. In other words, most of the times, for each position, there is only one good player. Still, it’s possible for you to build an excellent squad based on the Bundesliga with around 600 thousand coins (much less after a few months). If these numbers are too big for you, we advise you to move on to another league.

Once again, it is a waste not using a formation with wingers when building a squad based on the Bundesliga.

Sané was the best addition to the Bundesliga this year.

 
STRONG AND WEAK POINTS
Top players for most of the positions (RB is the exception)
Cheap alternative to the Premier League
Expensive league
Most of positions doesn’t have quality backups

Ligue 1

Complete analysis of this league can be found here

Among the five leagues given as the most popular ones, the Ligue 1 is clearly the weakest. It’s relatively cheap, more than the Serie A, but it doesn’t offer quality solutions for all positions like the Italian league does.

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 Marquinhos, Neymar or Mbappé are an absolute choice for any team. There are alternatives but the truth is that they’re never as good as, for example, what you get in the other four top leagues.

 
STRONG AND WEAK POINTS
Affordable squad
It has some top-quality players
Not as good as the other four leagues
The two best players are very expensive
Defensively weak

Other Leagues

More leagues besides the five already analysed

If your budget is low, there are leagues that can be quite useful to you. Here are the Portuguese, Dutch, Russian and Turkish leagues. Having them as a 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’s choice as there are not many. Since there are fewer 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. They are so so cheap that anyone can build one, which means that they are perfect for who is starting to play. Since there are less IF and special cards, it’s harder to improve your squad along the time. Although some of these teams can turn out to be very interesting, you’ll hardly be able to face the best teams effectively.

 
STRONG AND WEAK POINTS
Extremely cheap squads
Lack of quality players in a few positions
Less top-class players than in the other five leagues
Most difficult to upgrade with IF/special cards
