5 Best Teams to Use in FIFA 23 Career Mode

5) Newcastle United

After the Private Investment Fund (PIF) takes over at the back end of 2021, Newcastle United is now considered the richest club in world football. Nick Pope and Sven Botman have joined the club so far this summer, but can you take the Geordies to Premier League glory? We recommend any Newcastle United save to be started with the help of the Financial Takeover feature and use to the best of your ability PIF’s financial muscle. Attempt to break into the top 6 in your first season and then build from there with a mixture of experience and youth.

4) A.C Monza

Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is back in Serie A as the main owner and shareholder of Monza. More known for Formula One rather than Football, Monza will be playing in Serie A for the first time in their 109-year history. Alongside Berlusconi, his long-term associate and close friend Adriano Galliani is also at the club as their CEO and have had a very busy transfer window. Andrea Petagna, Stefano Sensi, and Pablo Mari are just some of the high-profile signings that the club has made over the past few months. The club also showed off their ambition by signing UEFA EURO 2020 winner and local lad Matteo Pessina from Atalanta. A great team to challenge the traditional Seven Sisters of Italian football and bring the Monza name on the lips of everyone in Europe.

3) Girondis De Bordeaux

Threatened to be relegated to the 3rd tier of French football due to financial difficulties. Bordeaux risked being out of FIFA 23 altogether. Fortunately for Career Mode fans, the further relegation was overturned and has given another amazing team for players to play with. Concentrate on building from the youth as the club is still suffering financially. Using your youth scouts will be crucial. Attempt to challenge for UEFA Champions League football in Ligue 1 within 5 in-game years of your save.

2) Derby County

Another club unfortunately stained with financial problems off the pitch, Derby County might have light at the end of the tunnel as a local business owner and fan David Clowes took over the club. Subsequently, investment in the playing staff was made. Conor Hourihane and Nathanial Mendez-Laing are just some of the high-profile names given the task to take up the Rams up the English football pyramid as quickly as possible. The Derbyshire club is very famous for its success in youth football including playing in the UEFA Youth League in 2020-2021. The Rams have not been in England’s top-flight division since the 2008-2009 season, could you change that?

1) Stockport County

Stockport County is back in FIFA for the first time since their last appearance in FIFA Football 2002. FIFA Career Mode enthusiasts always look forward to playing with the team who won promotion from the National League the season prior. To make it even more special, County has been out of the game for more than 20 years. This suggestion is for players who love to take a team from the bottom of the EFL League Two to Champions League glory. This save is for Career Mode only players as it’ll require blood, sweat, and tears and most likely will take the average player all year until the new title is released.
