Madden Ultimate Team revolves around Packs, which cost money, but everyone has there own budget. Here is what you can get with your budget.


Updated 23rd February 2017

Madden Season is well and truly underway as more and more people are getting into the game. Of course, one of the most popular modes, like in all EA Sports games, is Ultimate Team. Here at RealSport we have already given you a rundown on how to earn coins fast and we’ve ranked all of the Solo Challenges. Question is, how do you build a team to beat those challenges and earn those coins? The answer can be by opening packs.

Obviously, these packs are not free, they can be bought with real money or with your hard earned coins. So, here is a breakdown of what you can buy depending on your budget.

Before we get into that, though, let’s look at the different types of pack available.

What if I don’t want to spend money?

There a plenty of Madden players who don’t want to spend any money on Madden Ultimate Team, myself included. However, that doesn’t mean packs are unattainable as you can buy most of them with Coins (Link article), they just aren’t cheap. A Pro Pack is going cost you 7,500 coins, which is quite a steep price for a pack that doesn’t guarantee you’ll get a starter (depending on the quality of your team). An All-Pro Pack is going to set you back 35,000 coins, a Color Rush Pack is going to cost a whopping 80,000 coins, a Game Changer Pack will be a crippling 100,000 coins, a Legends Pack for 75,000 coins, a MUT Gear Pack for 50,000 coins, a TOTW Pack or MF – TOTW Pack for 70,000 Coins, a Movember Pack for 50,000 Coins, a Thanksgiving Pack for 80,000 Coins, a Flashback Pack for 100,000 Coins, a NFL Playoffs Pack for 30,000 Coins, a TOTW Playoff Pack for 70,000 Coins and a Campus Hero Pack for 70,000 Coins. The Elite Player Pack, Most Feared Pack, BCA Pack’s and Offseason Booster Pack are only purchasable by MUT Points, as are the Pack Bundles.
