Now that EA Sports FC 24 is available to everyone, the grind begins again in Ultimate Team, and everyone will be on the hunt for the best players – and rewards.

To secure your spot in FUT Champs and the Finals, you'll need to accumulate 1250 Qualification Points in Division Rivals. After climbing the ranks and proving your prowess, you'll be challenged with a total of 30 matches. You can unlock exclusive packs, elite players, and bountiful coins by diving into the ultimate test of skill: the Weekend League.

FUT Champions Start Date & Time In EA FC 24

We have been looking at the start dates for the first Weekend League and have already estimated that it will start on October 6.

The FUT Champs Finals will start on each Friday at 8am BST/ 3am ET / 12am PT and will end on Monday (8am BST/ 3am ET / 12am PT).

FIFA 21 | October 6October 17
FIFA 22 | September 27October 8
FIFA 23 | September 27October 7

EA confirmed our prediction. It was highly unlikely that they'd start the first WL without all players having access to Ultimate Team. Now that Ultimate Edition and Standard Edition players can start their grind we'll also see the first Champions Finals.
