FUT Champions is the new online mode featured in FIFA 17. This comprehensive new mode features several tiers that lead to eventually improving your spot in local, regional, and global leaderboards.

If you carve out some wins in the Daily Knockouts, you can qualify for the Weekend Leagues, where winning can rank you up in tiers running from Bronze at the bottom and running all the way up to the cream of the crop: The Top 100 tier.
