Team Builder

Competing in Ultimate Champions - European Summer Edition requires you to register your teams in both Leagues and Tournaments.

Follow this step-by-step guide to optimize your team building process.

Team Building Rules

Team selection

Before selecting your starting 11 players, begin by exploring the formation switcher located at the bottom of the team builder interface. This will allow you to choose the most suitable formation based on your collection. The available formations include:

  • 4-4-2 (default formation)

  • 4-3-3

  • 3-5-2

  • 3-4-3

  • 5-3-2

Once you've chosen a formation, fill all positions on the pitch by either manually selecting your players or using the autofill option for a quick setup.


All formations formation include three bench slots, each designated for a specific position (Defender, Midfileder and Forward).

While selecting substitutes isn't mandatory to register a team, it is highly recommended. Substitutes will automatically be subbed in if one of the athletes with the same position on the pitch doesn't play, ensuring your team maintains its competitive edge.

Opting for just a starting 11 could be a good strategy in the Leagues. Your total Point Cap budget is allocated to both starters and substitutes, so excluding substitutes allows for a stronger starting lineup.

However, there is a risk associated with having a DNP (Did Not Play) player in your lineup.


Once your lineup is ready, the last step is to select a Captain. Captains earn an additional 50% performance bonus on their score.

Understanding the Point Cap and L5 Average Score

Leagues mode add an extra layer to the team building process - a Point Cap. Here's a breakdown how it works:

  • Total Points Allocation: Each manager has a fixed point budget to build their team.

  • Player Values: Every player card has a specific point value based on their recent performances, specifically their L5 (Last 5) Average Score.

  • Strategic Choices: You must strategically select players to stay within the point cap while maximizing your team's overall strength.

The L5 (Last 5) Average Score represents the average fantasy points earned by a player in their most recent five matches. Every player will receive an initial fictional match score, determined by their performances in the Euro 2024 qualifiers.
