FIFA 21 Squad Battles rewards have been confirmed and regular players of this Ultimate Team competition will notice some differences from last year. Here, we lay out everything up for grabs for those who finish in the Top 100, Top 200, Elite, Gold, Silver, and Bronze in FUT 21. 

Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC players can now jump into this year’s flagship sports title from EA. In Ultimate Team, a lot has been changed to competitive matches, and Squad Battles is one of those that’s played the most by the community.


Unlike Division Rivals or FUT Champs, where you’re matched up with online players, this mode allows you to test your team against the AI. Significant upgrades have been made to the intelligence of the computer this year, too, as we saw in the gameplay pitch notes.

For those who have been grinding away all week, let’s take a look at when the rewards release and most importantly, what you will receive for your placement. All information provided by EA SPORTS.

The Chipotle Challenger Series returned on Octrober 1, this time featuring Fortnite Battle Royale action as players and a star-studded list of influencers and streamers went head-to-head.

Both of the previous events in the 2020 Chipotle Challenger Series were won by surprise teams, as unexpected players made it all the way through the qualifiers to take home the winner’s prize and a year’s worth of free burritos in the finale. 


Chipotle Fortnite Challenge Results – October 1

This time, though, the winners were a little less shocking as Furious, Ronaldo, and illest took home the grand prize – $50,000 and a year’s worth of free Chipotle burritos!

The Trio blitzed through to first place with three extremely high scoring games out of their five in the grand finals. 77 points pushed them just ahead of the second-best team on the day by a total of three points.


Full results & tournament recap.

What is the Chipotle Challenger Series?

The Chipotle Challenger Series first launched last year at DreamHack in Dallas, TX and is now virtual for 2020 with an online tournament that gives every fan across the U.S. and Canada the opportunity to join the competition and prove their skills in some of the world’s most popular games.

A live-broadcasted Finale is held, featuring the top-performing teams from the Qualifiers up against the streamers and celebrities.

These teams have the opportunity to go head-to-head against fan-favorites in esports as well as Chipotle-fan gamers in sports, music, and entertainment.

Some of the big names that took part in the first tournament of the 2020 Chipotle Challenger Series included award-winning DJ Steve Aoki, actors Finn Wolfhard, Jerry Ferrara, Colton Underwood, and Cameron Fuller, esports players Tommey, Rallied, Shane ‘ShAnE’ McKerral, and Crowder, streamers ItzWarsz, Symfuhny, Di3seL, TSM Diego, and HusKerrs, YouTuber FaZe Swagg, baseball players Joc Pederson, Cody Bellinger, and Joey Gallo, DJ-Gamer CRAY, USA Hockey’s Hilary Knight, elite basketball prospects James Wiseman, R.J. Hampton, and Tre Jones, U.S. Soccer’s Allie Long, and athlete Demi Bagby.

Chipotle and esports

This is far from Chipotle’s first foray into the world of esports. In 2017 the company made headlines as one of OpTic Gaming’s main sponsors and the Chipotle logo was on proud display when the organization’s Call of Duty roster took home the trophy at the 2017 Call of Duty World League Championship.

The Challenger Series first kicked off at DreamHack Dallas, where players duked it out on PUBG, before moving to Fortnite for the second event at DreamHack Atlanta.

In 2018 Chipotle became a title sponsor of Team SoloMid’s competitive Fortnite roster, specifically the TSM Fortnite house in California. This has led to various collaborations, including one of the world’s most recognized streamers, Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani, creating his own burrito inside a Chipotle store.
