The FUT Champions Cup was created in order to get the best players on FIFA Ultimate Teams to compete for the best rewards available in the game. Additionally, some of the very best FUT players also stand a chance of being invited to some of EA Sports’ competitive gaming events. Some of the rewards that online gamers can look out for include greater choices over content with which they can build their dream squad. Previously, in FIFA18™ the game rewarded your performance with Monthly Reward Packs, but in the latest edition, this has been upped to a Weekly Reward of player picks.
