Career mode, alongside FIFA Ultimate Team has been one of the most played game modes for years now. Players have never been spoilt for choice when it comes to the teams available in FIFA’s career mode.
Ranging from the Champions League winners to teams fighting to stay above relegation in the English Football League 2 there really is everything. We even have a team that is based on a TV series this year.
Today we take a look at some best teams of varying degrees that you can look to manage in your FIFA 23 career mode.
Paris Saint Germain (Ligue 1)
Probably the most obvious selection on this list for a career mode. Who would not want to utilize a team that has Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar? The list does not even end there is Gianluigi Donnaruma, Marquinhos, and Achraf Hakimi among many others.
Alongside this, PSG has an insane transfer budget which allows you to bring in bigger and better players into the club.
PSG has been dominant in Ligue 1 for years now but has yet to win the coveted Champions League, losing out narrowly to Bayern Munich in 2020.
Continue PSG’s dominance in France and bring them to their first ever Champions League title and cement the front three of Messi, Mbappe, and Neymar as one of the greatest of the generation. Perhaps you can further Messi’s Ballon d'Or success or grant Mbappe and Neymar their first-ever Ballon d'Or trophy.
Newcastle United (Premier League)
Going into the 2022/2023 season, Newcastle is a team that could easily break through into the upper echelon as they were at the beginning of the 21st century.
In FIFA 23 you could make that dream become a reality for them. Out of the current mid-table teams in the Premier League they have received a cash injection which will allow you to cash in on players to improve an already strong squad.
Allain Saint-Maximan and Aleksander Isak are two players to build your squad around to dethrone Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the Premier League, or at the very least give Newcastle fans Champions League football.
Salford City (EFL League 2)
A team on the opposite end of the spectrum is Salford City. Found in the lowest tier of English Football in FIFA 23, managing Salford presents a different challenge. Taking a team from League 2 to the Premier League is no easy task, with funds limited and players needing a lot of improvement.
Gameplay with these teams is also different with taking every dribble and long shot a danger, risking giving the ball away for free.
Salford is at least one of the stronger teams in League 2 and has decent funds in comparison to the rest of the league. Looking out for hidden gems, youth academy players, and taking players on loan is a big recommendation.
Alongside this, who doesn't want to manage a team owned by Gary Neville and others from the class of ‘92.
Coma 1907 (Serie B)
Coma is a team that will take many players out of their depth in FIFA 23. Not only is it foreign territory but the team has quite an interesting history.
Having been refounded twice and facing relegation from Serie C the team has a lot of adversity that it is facing.
Conquer Coma’s adversity and take them into the elite tier of Italian football. From there a Serie A and other cup titles await.
A player most players will recognize is former Arsenal, Barcelona, and Chelsea midfielder, Cesc Fabregas who himself takes on a new challenge at the ripe age of 35. Perhaps give Fabregas a good end to a career that has had many ups and downs.
AFC Richmond (Rest of World)
A team who should be on many players' lists to manage is AFC Richmond with their manager Ted Lasso. Based on the TV show Ted Lasso, many fans are over the moon to see the club added to FIFA 23 as a playable career mode team.
You also have the ability to determine the team’s destination, depending on which league you want to participate in. Given this flexibility, a player has a large influence on their influence not just in games but in the league they participate in.
You also have Ted Lasso’s exact likeness in the game which you can use to manage AFC Richmond or another team.
Jamie Tartt is an 84 overall-rated player which has the potential to reach 91, making him one of the highest-rated strikers in the game once he reaches his potential.
That's all about the best teams to manage in Fifa 23 Career mode. For more coverage of the world's favorite footballing title, check out our section dedicated to FIFA news, guides, SBC solutions, and much more.
