FIFA 21 kits: the best shirts for your Ultimate Team

(Image credit: EA)

FIFA 21 kits aren't just about looking good as you rack up the wins in Squad Battles, Division Rivals and the weekend league. They can also be a strong money-spinner in FIFA 21, bringing in coins when you unearth a hard-to-find or popular strip in a pack. Below we take a look at 11 of the sharpest combos in this year's game, mixing in a selection of cards that attract big coin on the transfer market. All prices are correct on PS4 as of Friday 18 December. Welcome to your FIFA 21 kits guide.

FC Bayern (away)

League: Bundesliga (GER 1)
Card type: Gold rare
Cost: 350 coins

It’s a two-tone grey look on the road this season for the Champions League winners, in which Robert Lewandowski is likely to hammer at least two dozen away goals. The badge, logo and sponsor are all in crisp orange-red, to offset the basic-yet-elegant base colour. Sehr, sehr gut.

Borussia Dortmund (home)

League: Bundesliga (GER 1)
Card type: Gold rare
Cost: 1,500 coins

Thunderbolts and lightning, very very… sorry Freddie, this one isn’t frightening at all, but it is a bit of a scorcher. Bayern’s big rivals break with their traditional, simple yellow-and-black combo for something significantly noisier, and in doing so replace long-standing sponsor Evonik with a new logo: German internet provider 1&1.

Barcelona (away)

League: La Liga (SPA 1)
Card type: Gold rare
Cost: 1,600 coins

Barca in black and gold? We’re into wolf-whistling territory here. The kit is high concept: it’s represented by the slogan “The colours are within”, with the legendary Spanish club stating that “Barca fans’ heart are Blaugrana, no matter what is on the outside”. It’s only the third time in Barca’s history that they’ve had a predominantly black kit, along with 2011-12 and 2013-14.

Inter Milan (home)

League: Serie A (ITA 1)
Card type: Gold rare
Cost: 1,300 coins

You really really really wanna zig-a-zig ah? Then Inter’s startling yet somehow sexy new look is the FIFA 21 kit for you. Like Dortmund it’s a colossal break from the norm in a bonkers year, with the Milan side’s traditional blue-and-black stripes swapped for a design inspired by Il Biscione - the city’s traditional symbol of an azure serpent.

Benevento (away)

(Image credit: EA)

League: Serie A (ITA 1)
Card type: Silver rare
Cost: 4,400 coins

Continuing the Italian theme, both Benevento kits are worth nabbing – either to wear in game, or as an investment. Along with Crotone, they’re one of two Serie A sides whose kits are silver rather than gold, meaning they’ll be hard to find all year. But while Crotone’s kits are fakies, Benevento’s are real, making them even more highly sought after.

Bielefeld (third)

(Image credit: EA)

League: Bundesliga (GER 1)
Card type: Silver rare
Cost: 1,200 coins

Another strip that’s both easy on the eye and beneficial to your long-term FIFA 21 coins bank balance. Just one Bundesliga side in FIFA 21 sports silver-carded kits: you’ve guessed it, it’s Bielefeld. If you see one of these on the market for under 1,000 coins, snap it up and immediately re-list with a 25% mark-up.

Southampton (home)

(Image credit: EA)

League: Premier League (ENG 1)
Card type: Gold rare
Cost: 200 coins

Breaking a tradition has been a theme here, and it’s especially welcome in the often risk-free Premier League. In fact, Saints have done something more complex than that: they’ve done away with more recent traditions (red-and-white stripes) to reinstall a much older one, with this sash stunner a throwback to their first ever kit, from 1885. It’s also one of the few on this list that you can nab at discard price.

New Zealand (home)

(Image credit: EA)

League: Men’s National (INT)
Card type: Silver rare
Cost: 4,500 coins

It’s all white on the night for the All Blacks. NZ’s home strip is up there with Nike’s best: beautifully simple, classy, and – as it’s an international kit – sponsor free. It’s another that’s a formidable investment. Both New Zealand strips went for close to the maximum of 5,000 coins throughout FIFA 20’s lifespan, and that precedent is repeated this year.

Al Ain FC (home)

(Image credit: EA)

League: United Emirates League (UAE 1)
Card type: Silver rare
Cost: 2,200 coins

More supremely clean Nike excellence here, though this time with a subtle yet elegant splash of purple. Al Ain FC are the only UAE club in FIFA 21 and as I write this there are only three cards representing this kit on the entire transfer market, so snap it up quick if you want to sport it in-game. The club’s all-purple away number is a real looker, too.

Angers SCO (home)

(Image credit: EA)

League: Ligue 1 Uber Eats (FRA 1)
Card type: Gold common
Cost: 200 coins

Italy’s most successful club may not be in FIFA 21 – for an explanation of why, check out our FIFA 21 Juventus guide – but Angers’ home colours are a strong replacement if you’re looking to build a squad of past and present Juve greats in Ultimate Team. It’s even made by Kappa, who manufactured a stack of classic Juventus strips in the eighties and nineties.

Chelsea (third)

(Image credit: EA)

League: Premier League (ENG 1)
Card type: Gold rare
Cost: 1,100 coins

What’s this? Chelsea turning themselves into a hybrid of Barca, Crystal Palace and Inverness Caledonian Thistle? Well… yes. Frank Lampard’s boys wearing red and blue shouldn’t work on paper but it just does, throwing back to a classic Nike trainer from the 1990s. As our FIFA 21 Icons guide will tell you, retro always works well in EA’s footy series.
