FIFA 22 Ultimate Team Division Rivals: Format, rewards, ranks & tips

Division Rivals is the core online mode in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team and one of the main sources of valuable packs and coins. Here’s our guide on how the mode works, the rewards, ranks, and some tips on how to climb the ladder.

While FUT Champions is home to FIFA 22’s best packs, Division Rivals is the Ultimate Team mode where players spend the majority of their time.

The weekly rewards structure makes it the best easiest way to keep a steady stream of new players coming to your club.

EA revamped Division Rivals for FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, so here’s everything you need to know about its structure, ranks, and rewards.

FIFA 22 Division Rivals format

In FIFA 22, EA has scrapped the old structure for Division Rivals and replaced it with one that asks fans to play fewer games to earn rewards.

Players can now take part in as many games as they want per week but need to secure three wins for standard rewards, or seven for upgraded rewards.

All players start in Division 10, and each win also moves them up a notch on the Rivals leaderboard, while a loss moves them back down and a draw holds their position.

Players who get on a roll and win three games in a row are handed a win streak boost, meaning they move up two places per win instead of one.

The aim every week is to bag three or seven wins, while also landing in the highest rank in the highest division possible.

There are three ranks within every division, each with incrementally better rewards than the last. The packs and coins offered also increase dramatically as you climb the divisions.

Within each division, there are also a number of checkpoints. If you reach one of these notches, it means you cannot fall back any lower no matter how many games are lost.

Rank 3 in every division has a checkpoint attached, so it is impossible to be relegated once you reach a new level.

At the end of the in-game season, all players are returned to Division 10 to start over.

FIFA 22 Division Rivals Elite Division

If you still aren’t breaking a sweat in Division 1, then the new Elite Divison might be where you feel at home.

This is a new addition for FIFA 22, where the game’s very best players compete for incredible rewards.

Here, the mode returns to the Skill Rating system from FIFA 21, with the top 200 displayed on a leaderboard in all their glory.

To qualify, you simply need to win enough games in a row to escape from Division 1 and into the top tier of Rivals.

When are Division Rivals rewards released in FIFA 22?

A week in Division Rivals runs from Thursday to Thursday, with the rewards from the previous week dropping in the early hours of the morning.

You can see a full breakdown of what times rewards will turn up in your account, depending on your time zone, here:

If you have the willpower, you can also save your packs until the next promotion is live in the hope of pulling a special card.

FIFA 22 Division Rivals ranks and rewards

Every new rank in Division Rivals has three different options to choose from when it comes to rewards – each with a different combination of tradeable and untradeable packs, and some coins thrown in for good measure.

Luckily, you don’t have to choose which option to take until you physically go in to claim your rewards.
