FIFA 23: What to do in Ultimate Team this week



FIFA 23 is here! With many different tasks and game modes in Ultimate Team, it can be a tricky place to prioritise your playtime - especially if you're new to it.

We have you covered, with this weekly look at all the objectives and SBCs, letting you know what to look out for and where to avoid.

Where possible we will also highlight how to combine multiple objectives, to streamline your play.


It's time to start a new campaign in Ultimate Team, building your squad from the ground up.

As usual, the Ones to Watch promo kicks things off in FIFA 23, with a couple of free cards on offer to bulk up your side.

The objectives for OTW Richarlison need to be completed in the Live FUT Friendly: Continental Links, so although you can't double them up with other major tasks, you will be ticking off many basic challenges along the way.

The requirements for OTW Sergino Dest need to be completed in Squad Battles or Rivals, and we would recommend playing on Semi-Pro in Squad Battles, so you can score loads of goals and complete the objectives for the Team of the Week Warmup and Ones to Watch Warmup sets to gain more pack rewards.

You have until Friday, 7 October to complete the Richarlison objectives, and Tuesday, 11 October for the Dest ones, so they should be your first priority.

As it is the start of Season 1, we will also advise you on which Storyline Player Picks we believe are best.

For us, you have to double up on the Eredivisie boys and go for Neraysho Kasanwirjo (OVR 82) and Bryan Brobbey (OVR 84).

Kasanwirjo is very versatile, able to play in several positions, and Brobbey is a beast, with great physicality and shooting - with the much sought-after Lengthy AcceleRATE archetype!


Today is your last chance to bring in the first Silver Stars objective player of FIFA 23, which is Team of the Week Ryan Christie.

The objectives can be completed in less than an hour it's definitely worth doing, as adding powerful Silver cards to your club early will help with unlocking more Silver Stars throughout the season.


Team of the Week 3 will arrive on Wednesday, 5 October at 1pm ET / 6pm BST, and there is another massive name set to headline the side.

With a hat trick and two assists in the Manchester derby, Erling Haaland is bound to get a boosted version.

If that happens, not only will a TOTW version come to packs, but his OTW card will be upgraded too!

You can keep on top of all the OTW upgrades by using our Ones to Watch Tracker.

A new Silver Stars card will also be released, so get that completed and out of the way so you don't have to worry about it for the rest of the week.


Division Rivals rewards will be released at 3am ET / 8am BST on Thursday, 6 October.

Aside from that, it will likely be a quiet day for new FIFA 23 content, so get all the objectives completed, and qualify for the first FUT Champions if you plan to enter!


The first Weekend League of the season will kick off at 3am ET / 8am BST and will last until Monday, 10 October at 3am ET / 8am BST, so make sure you've qualified for that if you plan to enter.

Ones to Watch will come to an end, with the Road to the Knockouts promo expected to take over, at the usual time of 1pm ET / 6pm BST.

RTTK cards will replace OTW ones in packs, and we should get RTTK players via Objectives and an SBC.


If you've qualified for Weekend League then your day will be occupied with that.

Look to be hitting 51 points as a minimum, as the rewards get much better from that stage upwards.

Other than that, player objectives will be where you spend your time, competing in Squad Battles to earn better rewards for Sunday.


Squad Battle rewards will be available at 3am ET / 8am BST, which could be quite good if you've been playing them for the player objectives.

Again, it will be another day of Weekend League and player objectives, Squad Battles or Division Rivals.

A RTTK Mini Release could drop at 1pm ET / 6pm BST, adding another three players to packs, with the possibility that another player comes via objectives too.
