You begin the FIFA Ultimate Team mode with 500 fut coins. Once you’re familiar with your roster, head on over to the Store and to Browse Packs. Open the complimentry packs you have to get started. You want to sort your assets here. Go to Quick Sell to get rid of any players you’re comfortable are not going to work with your roster, and you’ll earn a few fut 17 coins. Keep any high ranking players using the Send to Club option, and separate the consumable assets, such as managers, stadiums and kits.
Don’t be too quick to Quick Sell your consumables as FIFA recommends activating consumables that may boost your fitness rating, for example.
Now you’re going to need coins. To earn coins you’ll have to compete in matches, tournaments and drafts. Start in a single player session and start earning what you can, and use these to boost your FIFA Ultimate Team.
