FIFA 20 DRAFT - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We have created this FAQ to make it easier to understand how FUT Draft works
FIFA 20 Draft is a game mode within FUT. Playing it, you can test your team building skills as you pick the best fit for each position from a five-player draw. Draft a squad and challenge opponents in a series of up to four matches to win big rewards for your club.
As a competition mode in FIFA Ultimate Team, FUT Draft mode allows to build a squad for your club from the scratch with a random set of high quality players which you may not already have their cards in your club. Draft mode gives you an opportunity to experience building a high quality squad while you can learn about the team & players chemistry, formation settings and in general, forming a good team in FUT.

Technically, Draft mode is a test drive for you to see how which players from which leagues and nationality you can go for to form a FUT squad. In FUT Draft mode, you don’t spend coins/points to get player cards – except for the competition entry, this will help you to draft out a team in action and improve your knowledge of how to fit the players in a team, as well as how to improve your gameplay with that team while you are achieving prizes and earning coins.
FUT Draft was released for the first time ever in FIFA 16.
Take your squad to the pitch and challenge your opponents in a four-match series. Compete in single-player or online against opponents across the world. You’ll earn better rewards as you progress. Earn the best rewards by winning four matches in a row.

Step-by-step instructions:

1 From FUT, go to ‘online’ or ‘single player’ and choose FUT Draft.

2 Choose one of five different formations.
The formation you pick will be your default formation throughout the series of matches.

3 Pick your Captain from a set of five superstars.

4 Fill out the rest of your 23-person squad by picking players for each position from a random draw of five players. Once you choose your starting XI, Bench, and Reserves, you can move players around to improve your Chemistry rating.

A FUT Draft competition series contains four knockout matches to play. You need a win to qualify to the next match, which means a loss will eliminate your team out of the series. The higher you go, the more stronger opponent you will face and the higher you finish in the competition, the bigger the rewards will be.
Yes. This mode is available for single player and online.
Probably because they are free to try new players and new cards.
To start playing Draft mode you first need to choose your formation, pick a captain, build your team and select a manager.

FIFA 20 Draft
No. Just like it happens with the players, there is a random selection of five formations to pick. Start your FUT Draft by choosing the one you like most. Choose wisely: the formation you pick will remain as your default formation throughout the series of matches.

FIFA 20 Draft
No. You can only change the formation after you lose or start over again.
The captain is the first player you need to choose to your FUT Draft squad. Usually, he is the best player on your team. The five-player draw you will have to pick to the other positions are based on this choice.

FIFA 20 Draft
After selecting your captain, fill out the rest of your 23-man squad by picking players for each position from a random draw of five players. You’ll be faced with interesting team building challenges: do you grab the best highest rated player in that position or focus on maximizing team Chemistry? Try different combinations to see what works best for you. After selecting your starting XI, Bench, and Reserves you can then move players around to improve your Chemistry rating.
Just look at the bottom of your screen. There is a button to auto-complete your squad.

Don’t forget that you are playing Ultimate Team mode. A Manager with the right nationality or league links will help to improve your team’s chemistry.
Your squad will have Team Chemistry and Team Rating which will affect your gameplay on the pitch. Besides that, obviously, the players you have selected don’t play all the same way.
It’s easy. On your FUT mode, go to ‘online’ or ‘single player’ tabs, and then select ‘Draft’.
