Our first look at this year's FIFA Ultimate Team

EA makes FUT competitive.

EA's put out a video showing off FIFA Ultimate Team for FIFA 17.

This year's FUT adds squad-building challenges and FUT Champions.

Squad-building challenges lets you use all your Club items to get rewards, including unwanted bronze and silver items.

FUT Champions is daily knockout tournaments for in-game rewards. Through it, you get a chance to play in the Weekend League. There's a Monthly Leaderboard to work towards.

If you get to the top spots on the leaderboard, you could get the chance to compete in the new FUT Championship Series. There's a $1.3m prize pool on offer. It all sounds like EA's trying to take FUT into the world of eSports.

The 32 best Ultimate Team players in the world take part in the Ultimate Team Championship. The multiplatform competition culminates in a two-legged fixture, played across the competition's two platforms, and ultimately crowning a champion.
