All qualifiers will use the retail version of FIFA 23 Ultimate Team Friendly Seasons game mode. Players will have to add each other as Friends on the 1st party platform before playing.

All matches must be played on an EU server.
Once a match starts, a player has 20 minutes from the in-game time to complain that his opponent is not abiding by one of the below rules. Should the 20-minute time pass, it will automatically mean that both players are in agreement, and therefore, one cannot complain after.
- The squad can include up to 1 ICON total, including your bench.
- Up to 3 non-ICON players with an OVR rating of 90 or higher.
- All other players must have an OVR rating of 89 or below.
- The goalkeeper has no restriction and does not count towards the above limits.
- Loan items are permitted.
- Players should each have a light-coloured jersey and a dark-coloured jersey and should choose the opposite of one another to avoid confusion. If Players can’t agree, the home player should choose a dark-coloured jersey and the away player a light-coloured jersey.
- Stadiums must have white lines and white goal nets.
All no-shows must be reported on the website with proof that the opponent didn't add you. The No Show grace period is 15 minutes after the match's original start time. For example, if a match is scheduled for 22:00, the no-show time for this match would be 22:15. It is essential to contact the tournament official after posting a no-show on the website.
Should a player have any hardware or software problem, the match admin has the right to call a no-show once the 15-minute grace period is over.
