Regions

Qualification for the Ultimate Team™ Championship Series (UTC Series) is divided into three geographical regions: Europe, Americas and Rest of World. A list of the countries included in each region can be found in the OFFICIAL RULES.

DIVISIONS

The UTC Series will be played in two divisions: the Xbox One Division and the PlayStation 4 Division.
