FUT14 To Feature 9 New Formations


EA SPORTS have revealed that there are 9 new formations in Ultimate Team for FIFA 14.

It has also been revealed that players will have an unlimited consumable pile. The new formations are as follows:

4-2-3-1 (2)

Easily the most requested formation in FIFA Ultimate Team. This new 4-2-3-1 variation lets you utilize natural wingers instead of attacking midfielders (CAMs) to create a deadly attack.

4-4-2 (2)

This formation is a more defensive variation of the classic 4-4-2 with two defensive midfielders (CDMs) in place of the usual center midfielders.

4-1-2-1-2 (2)

Dominate the midfield with this new variation of the popular 4-1-2-1-2. This formation switches the players out wide for centre midfielders (CMs) to break-up the midfield play along with a defensive midfielder (CDM).


The 4-1-4-1 offers strength in the center of midfield (with two center midfielders and a defensive midfield anchor) as well as width with two wide players to link up with your lone striker.

4-5-1 (2)

This new FIFA Ultimate Team formation adds more midfield steel to the usual 4-5-1. The three center midfielders make it harder to break down on the counter and leaves less gaps for the attack.

4-3-3 (2) “Hold”

The first of the new 4-3-3 variations offers a holding defensive midfielder anchor in the midfield.

4-3-3 (3) “Defend”

This defensive-minded 4-3-3 variation offers two holding defensive midfielders and one center midfielder in the midfield.

4-3-3 (4) “Attack”

The more attacking variant of the 4-3-3 turns one of the midfielders (CMs) into an attacking midfielder (CAM) to support the front three.

4-3-3 (5) “False 9”

The final 4-3-3 variant offers a deeper-lying center forward (CF) position to hold possession and help build-up the attacking play; perfect for the likes of Wayne Rooney or Luis Suarez.
