It’s time to celebrate a milestone for FIFA Ultimate Team as it’s the special mode’s 10th birthday! In honor of the FIFA 19 Ultimate Team birthday celebration, they’ve unveiled a brand new promotion featuring a squad of players. In addition, there are players available through Weekly Objectives and new Squad Building Challenges. Here’s a look at what content was revealed including the FIFA 19 Ultimate Team Birthday Squad players.
FIFA 19 Ultimate Team Birthday Squad includes Griezmann, Bale, Mbappe
Each week, FIFA Team of the Week brings us some of the top players in recent performances. There was also a Team of the Year featuring the best in the game today from the season. Among the FIFA 19 TOTY star players were Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, and Neymar.
Now we have another impressive starting XI for this celebratory squad full of great talent. Headlining with 93 overall ratings are Antoine Griezmann and Gareth Bale. They’re joined by a 92 Koulibaly and 91 Kylian Mbappe. The 90-rated players continue as shown below. Only one player amongst the starters is an 89, so it’s certainly one impressive lineup.
