FIFA 23: The best FUT starter teams for 50k coins

As Ultimate Team managers begin preparing their squads for the release of FIFA 23, here are some ideas for your starter teams that cost around just 50k coins.

Following the early release of the Web App, FUT players can begin the Ultimate Team grind ahead of the full game. Sadly, to play a game of FIFA, you must wait until September 27 or 30, depending on whether you have early access.

But that has not stopped people from completing SBCs and opening packs in order to build their starter teams. For many, trading on the transfer market and compiling squads is an enjoyable feature at the game’s start.

However, most gamers do not have millions of coins with which to buy players. So, here are some budget-friendly teams that cost around 50k on FIFA 23.

*All prices are correct from FUTBIN as of 23/9/2022. They are set to change, as the transfer market can fluctuate.

Serie A

Firstly, our starter Serie A team makes use of pacy defenders and a balanced, hard-working midfield. The attack, whilst speedy, also contains the most expensive player in the team. AC Milan winger Rafael Leao will set you back around 14k coins.

  • GK – Andre Onana (82 rated, 1000 coins)
  • RB – Giovanni Di Lorenzo (82 rated, 2200 coins)
  • CB – Pierre Kalulu (78 rated, 3200 coins)
  • CB – Kim Min Jae (79 rated, 3700 coins)
  • LB – Leonardo Spinazzola (82 rated, 4000 coins)
  • CM – Weston McKennie (80 rated, 3600 coins)
  • CM – Lorenzo Pellegrini (84 rated, 2100 coins)
  • CDM – Sandro Tonali (84 rated, 8400 coins)
  • RW – Hirving Lozano (81 rated, 2700 coins)
  • ST – Luis Muriel (82 rated, 3500 coins)
  • LW – Rafael Leao (84 rated, 14000 coins)

Total price: 48,400 coins, per FUTBIN.

Bundesliga

This year, the German top flight looks like an underrated league with which to build a starter squad. The Bundesliga has a number of “cheap beasts” in FIFA 23, meaning teams that are under 50k should be easier to build.

One card that could fly under the radar is Konrad Laimer. Thanks to his pace, work rates, and stamina, the Austrian could be a monster CDM.

  • GK – Gregor Kobel (83 rated, 2300 coins)
  • RB – Noussair Mazraoui (82 rated, 1900 coins)
  • CB – Konstantinos Mavropanos (78 rated, 1300 coins)
  • CB – Lukas Klostermann (80 rated, 7000 coins)
  • LB – David Raum (81 rated, 2000 coins)
  • RM – Karim Bellarabi (79 rated, 850 coins)
  • CM – Konrad Laimer (83 rated, 4400 coins)
  • CM – Jude Bellingham (84 rated, 12750 coins)
  • LM – Leroy Sane (84 rated, 5700 coins)
  • ST – Karim Adeyemi (75 rated, 4300 coins)
  • ST – Timo Werner (82 rated, 6100 coins)

Total price: 49,100 coins, per FUTBIN.

La Liga

Unfortunately, La Liga suffers from a lack of cheap CB options. Therefore, you do have to fork out 15k for a decent defender in David Alaba. However, the midfield and attack leave you with many versatile options, so your in-game formation can vary.

  • GK – Unai Simon (83 rated, 2800 coins)
  • RB – Jesus Navas (83 rated, 2800 coins)
  • CB –  Mario Hermoso (80 rated, 1100 coins)
  • CB –  David Alaba (86 rated, 15250 coins)
  • LB – Alex Moreno (80 rated, 1000 coins)
  • CM –  Sergi Darder (82 rated, 2800 coins)
  • CM – Rodrigo de Paul (84 rated, 4000 coins)
  • CDM – Eduardo Camavinga (79 rated, 3200 coins)
  • RW – Antoine Griezmann (83 rated, 2500 coins)
  • ST – Joao Felix (84 rated, 7000 coins)
  • LW – Yannick Carrasco (85 rated, 7600 coins)

Total price: 50,050 coins, per FUTBIN.

Ligue 1

PSG take up the majority of high-rated cards in the French top division. The likes of Mbappe and Neymar are very expensive, meaning you have to search for gems in the low-rated cards.

Even Renato Sanches, at 80 rated, currently sets you back 18k. Ligue 1 may be a better option to build a hybrid squad from – but you can still make a great XI out of the cards in the league.

  • GK – Kasper Schmeichel (83 rated, 2800 coins)
  • RB – Jonathan Clauss (80 rated, 1000 coins)
  • CB – Jean-Clair Todibo (78 rated, 1800 coins)
  • CB – Tiago Djalo (75 rated, 2000 coins)
  • LB – Nuno Mendes (80 rated, 4200 coins)
  • CM – Renato Sanches (80 rated, 18500 coins)
  • CDM – Matteo Guendouzi (80 rated, 1400 coins)
  • CM – Carlos Soler (83 rated, 1500 coins)
  • RW – Gelson Martins (77 rated, 1600 coins)
  • ST – Wissam Ben Yedder (84 rated, 11250 coins)
  • LW – Moses Simon (77 rated, 950 coins)

Total price: 47,000 coins, per FUTBIN.

Premier League

This Premier League team benefits from having versatile players. For instance, Reece James can play in midfield, CB, or RB, thanks to his well-rounded stats.

Similarly, Phil Foden has a number of positions for his card. So, even if you chop and change formation, the Man City player is still easy to fit in. His great dribbling stats will make Foden an excellent player at the start of FIFA 23.

  • GK – Aaron Ramsdale (82 rated, 1400 coins)
  • RB – Reece James (84 rated, 4800 coins)
  • CB – Joe Gomez (81 rated, 6000 coins)
  • CB – Manuel Akanji (81 rated, 3200 coins)
  • LB – Kieran Tierney (81 rated, 2900 coins)
  • CDM – Fred (80 rated, 3100 coins)
  • CDM – Boubacar Kamara (80 rated, 1000 coins)
  • CAM – Phil Foden (85 rated, 8900 coins)
  • RM – Lucas Moura (80 rated, 3900 coins)
  • LM – Jadon Sancho (84 rated, 5200 coins)
  • ST – Gabriel Jesus (83 rated, 8700 coins)

Total price: 49,100 coins, per FUTBIN.
