FIFA Ultimate Team is all about building a dream team filled with the best players and icons in the world. But everyone has to start somewhere, and if the budget for your first squad is no more than 25,000 coins, you might need a little help in getting the best bang for your buck.
Here are some great squads you can build for under 25,000 Coins, courtesy of the FUTBIN community.
Bundesliga Squad: Total Cost 19,150 Coins
Thorgan Hazard (OVR 83) LW - 2,800 Coins
Milot Rashica (OVR 79) ST - 2,800 Coins
Karim Bellarabi (OVR 82) RW - 3,300 Coins
Leopold Kohr (OVR 75) CDM - 750 Coins
Mattheus Kunha (OVR 78) CM - 3,100 Coins
Thomas Delany (OVR 81) CDM - 1,700 Coins
Christian Günter (OVR 78) LB - 2,100 Coins
Jordan Torunarigha (OVR 75) CB - 850 Coins
Jérôme Boateng (OVR 82) CB - 2,300 Coins
Thomas Meunier (OVR 81) RB - 1,000 Coins
Jiří Pavlenka (OVR 82) GK - 750 Coins
It’s not hard to build a quality Bundesliga squad on a small budget, and this squad is the perfect example. It might not be aesthetically pleasing to see five players with less than an 80 OVR included. But this squad is all about pace on a budget, while still having sufficient quality in other areas too.
The attacking trio is particularly devastating. Hazard and Bellarabi are lightning-fast on the wings. The former has 84 Pace and the latter has 90 Pace. Rashica has 88 Pace as well, which is incredible for a striker.
Premier League Squad: Total Cost 14,750 Coins
Leandro Trossard (OVR 78) LW - 550 Coins
Michail Antonio (OVR 78) ST - 3,500 Coins
Takumi Minamino (OVR 77) RW - 1,000 Coins
John Fleck (OVR 77) CM - 500 Coins
Lucas Torreira (OVR 81) CM - 4,200 Coins
John McGinn (OVR 76) CM - 550 Coins
Konstantinos Tsimikas (OVR 76) LB - 750 Coins
Mason Holgate (OVR 77) CB - 550 Coins
Çaglar Söyüncü (OVR 80) CB - 850 Coins
Ryan Fredericks (OVR 76) RB - 1,500 Coins
Łukasz Fabiański (OVR 81) GK - 800 Coins
EPL squads are notoriously more expensive due to the popularity of the league. However, it’s not impossible to build a good starter squad, and the fact this one can be built for as little as 14,750 Coins is proof of that. Again, the strength of this squad is the attack, and it all comes down to pace.
La Liga Squad: Total Cost 18,600 Coins
Munir El Haddadi (OVR 79) ST - 750 Coins
Philippe Coutinho (OVR 83) CAM - 7,900 Coins
Alexander Isak (OVR 79) ST - 900 Coins
Héctor Herrera (OVR 81) CM - 1,700 Coins
Mikel Merino Zazón (OVR 80) CDM - 1,000 Coins
Lucas Torreira (OVR 81) CM - 1,900 Coins
Pervis Estupiñán (OVR 79) LB - 900 Coins
Rúben Vezo (OVR 77) CB - 1,200 Coins
Aïssa Mandi (OVR 79) CB - 900 Coins
Oscar De Marcos Arana (OVR 78) RB - 700 Coins
Sergio Asenjo (OVR 82) GK - 750 Coins
It’s a good idea to start with a La Liga FUT squad because there’s a lot of quality players that can be bought at a cheap price. This starter squad isn’t as pacey as the others, but it’s not too bad either. Most players have at least 80 Pace, which should be enough. The highlight, however, has to be Coutinho, who is a well-rounded CAM.
Serie A Squad: Total Cost 17,850 Coins
Luis Muriel (OVR 79) ST - 1,700 Coins
Arkadiusz Milik (OVR 81) ST - 850 Coins
Robin Gosens (OVR 82) LM - 1,300 Coins
Arturo Vidal (OVR 83) CM - 3,600 Coins
Arthur (OVR 84) CM - 3,900 Coins
Matteo Politano (OVR 81) RM - 1,000 Coins
Aleksandar Kolarov (OVR 82) LB - 1,500 Coins
Nicolas Nkoulou (OVR 80) CB - 1,600 Coins
Chris Smalling (OVR 79) CB - 1,600 Coins
Kévin Malcuit (OVR 78) RB - 900 Coins
Gianluigi Buffon (OVR 82) GK - 750 Coins
Serie A is another great choice for a first team. It’s even more affordable than Bundesliga and La Liga, but it also has a lot of quality. This starter squad has a decent amount of pace, but it also sacrifices some of it for brains and brawn. Milik, for example, only has 68 Pace, but his shooting is impeccable. Combined with Muriel, who has 88 Pace, the two of them can make for a lethal duo.
