EA SPORTS have confirmed the cost for their next flagship sports game. If you’re wondering about the FIFA 21 Standard Edition price, FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition price, or Champions Edition price, you’ve come to the right place.

Each year, FIFA is roughly the same price depending on what edition you purchase, with perhaps a little variation if you buy the physical copy from different retailers.

With the dawn of the next generation of consoles, many are questioning whether FIFA 21 is going to cost more than before, though. The cost also varies, depending on which edition you pick.

Prices for FIFA 21 are similar to what they have been in previous years if you’re looking to buy the digital editions. Here’s how much each will cost, and what each edition will get you.

How much is FIFA 21 Standard Edition?

The Standard Edition of FIFA 21 is going to cost £59.99/$59.99 according to the official Xbox and PlayStation stores.

This is the same price as FIFA 20 at launch and doesn’t offer any incentives further than simply owning the updated game.

How much is FIFA 21 Champions Edition?

Here’s what you get with the Champions Edition:

The Ultimate Edition of FIFA 21 is the biggest and the most expensive. If you pick this one up, expect to spend in the region of £89.99/$99.99. Here’s what the extra bit of money will get you if you opt for this edition:

As always, there are ways to save money on FIFA 21.

One of these, and the most obvious, is by scouting out the cheapest options from physical stores. Although this means potentially having to wait longer to play the game, as well as having to care for a disc rather a digital download, this can save you a fair bit of money — especially if you don’t mind waiting a few weeks.

Alternatively, you can check out our guide on how to get a 20% discount on FIFA 21, which would make each edition around the following price:

  • FIFA 21 Standard Edition — £47.99/$47.99
  • FIFA 21 Champions Edition —£63.99/$63.99
  • FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition —£71.99/$79.99

FIFA 21 price on PS5 and Xbox Series X

FIFA 21 EA SPORTS Dual Entitlement
The FIFA 21 Dual Entitlement program means you won’t have to pay for a new copy of FIFA on next-gen consoles.

If you’re planning on picking up FIFA 21 on the next generation of consoles when they release at the end of 2020, you’re in luck. The game won’t cost you a penny if you already own it on PS4 or Xbox One, and that’s thanks to EA SPORTS’ Dual Entitlement feature.

Once you have your PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, Dual Entitlement enables you to upgrade your copy of FIFA 21 on PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, or from Xbox One to Xbox Series X, at no extra cost — whether it’s a digital or physical copy of the game.

It’s worth noting that while all Ultimate Team and VOLTA Football progress will transfer from one console to the next, progress within all other specific modes will be specific to the console it was made on. So no, your Champions League-winning Exeter side won’t carry over to your next-gen Career Mode.

That’s everything you need to know about the cost of FIFA 21! Which edition will you be picking up? Let us know by tweeting @UltimateTeamUK.


West Ham’s Declan Rice reveals his epic FIFA 21 Ultimate Team XI on TikTok

West Ham’s star centre midfielder Declan Rice has taken to TikTok to show off his FIFA 21 Ultimate Team starting XI, and it’s stacked with top ICONs and Premier League peers.

In their downtime, many top football players like to take to their consoles to play FIFA, unable to get away from the pitch whether it’s online or in real life.

Rice has become a huge fan-favorite at West Ham in recent years, a holding midfielder that shows promise far beyond what the East London club is commonly associated with, and seems to have built his dream squad around him.

Many top Premier League stars have shown off their top-tier FUT teams in the past, with the likes of Diogo Jota revealing his team as arguably the best FIFA player in the league.

Declan Rice has become a huge asset to West Ham.

While Rice is mainly known for his skills on the pitch, as one of the most sought-after players among top Premier League sides, he’s managed to put together a top team in FIFA 21 too.

Placing himself alongside some of the biggest legends of the game, here’s how Declan Rice’s FUT 21 team lines up:

  • GK: Edwin Van der Sar (89)
  • RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold (87)
  • CB: Kyle Walker (86)
  • CB: Virgil Van Dijk (90)
  • LB: Roberto Carlos (88)
  • CDM: Declan Rice (99)
  • CDM: Ruud Gullit (90)
  • CAM: Ronaldo (94)
  • CAM: Eusebio (91)
  • CAM: Pele (94)
  • ST: Neymar (91)

While the team has a very high rating across the board, there are some somewhat unorthodox picks.

Walker at CB seems a bit rogue, and you won’t often see that in top teams, while you would normally expect to see Ronaldo occupying that striker spot that Rice currently plays Neymar in. In fact, Mbappe on the bench proves Rice might want to have a look at his formation so he can get the French starlet in.

That said, it’s still a valuable team and definitely capable of wiping out opponents with ease — though we’d have to see how Rice himself plays to really judge that.
