FIFA 21 Best Career Mode Teams

If you are reading this article, you are probably looking to find out who the best teams in FIFA 21 career mode are before you make the important managerial decision. I am a big fan of career mode myself and have played it since EA released early access for EA play subscribers. During this time, I had the chance to do my research and compile this list of teams that you are about to see.

Furthermore, I know that the ‘best career mode teams’ is a very relative term as each one of us plays career mode for a different reason. While some of us want to take their local teams such as Southampton to Premier League and European glory, others want to jump into the big leagues and take advantage of signing FIFA 21’s meta players, 5-star skillers, fastest strikers, and so on.

So, don’t worry. I will suggest a few completely different teams to suit each and every one of you.
