FIFA 20 Ultimate Team player finds glitch to save thousands of coins

Popular YouTuber Craig ‘NepentheZ’ Douglas has already discovered a very unusual glitch in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team and it looks like fitness cards are completely useless in the game mode. 

There are a number of consumables that FIFA players are forced into buying from the online market every year, including contracts to allow players to play more games, and – of course – fitness cards to ensure that squads aren’t too tired to take part in matches. 

While these usually command over one thousand coins a pop and usually bought up pretty quickly by players, it seems that fans don’t need them at all.

EA SPORTSYou might not even need to buy fitness cards in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team. At least, not for now.

The way the fitness system works in FUT is simple. Each game played with a team will see the overall fitness of the cards drop between 1-10 percent, depending on how much ground they have had to cover. 

Then, once they have been run down, players should need to apply squad or individual fitness cards to ensure that they are fresh for the next match. Yet, things aren’t really working as they should. 

NepentheZ uploaded a video to his channel on September 24 explaining just how this system is actually broken in FIFA 20 – and it doesn’t look good to say the least.

How players are saving coins in FUT 20

The video, which can be seen above, shows that the glitch works both online and offline. 

Players that start games with around 50 fitness, a figure that would usually see them out on their feet after one half of football, are actually starting matches with a very different amount of fitness than what the menus would have you believe. 

“Everybody has full fitness here,” NepentheZ said after pausing FUT Rivals. “However, this is how I know there’s a fitness glitch, because some people say ‘it’s always like that’ and then just drains quicker in the game, but when you look at the bench, look at players that don’t have full fitness.”

EA SPORTSHave you noticed that your FIFA Ultimate Team players aren’t losing fitness?

He shows that those in the starting XI have all got perfect fitness, whereas the cards on the bench that never had full fitness going into it, look tired and they haven’t even stepped off the bench yet. Therefore, the team that starts appears to have zero fitness repercussions at all. 

Regardless of where the fitness bar says it is at before the game, it appears that there’s an active glitch that makes buying fitness cards redundant. Whether or not this is something EA is looking into remains to be seen, as they are yet to comment on it at the time of writing. 

Instead of rushing out to buy the cards in order to keep your fitness up, many players will be keeping the purse strings closed and carrying on without them until a fix is implemented – saving coins in the process.

YouTuber Matt ‘MattHDGamer’ Craig has signed with talent agency Turopium Sports and Entertainment, teasing “big” things coming soon as a result of the partnership.

The content creator is best known for his FIFA videos on YouTube, where he boasts an impressive 2.42 million subscribers. He joins a talent roster that already comprises the likes of B0aty, James Buckley, and Onscreen – making the move official on December 2.

During the course of 2020, Matt has racked up millions of views creating Ultimate Team and Football Manager content for his channel — over 800 million since he started out — making it an exciting coup for Turopium.

By the same token, he’s also delighted that the deal has been finalized.

“I am very happy to be working with a team that is so committed to my growth as a creator but also ensuring that I am able to get as much from the experience as I put in. Since signing, I have experienced unmatched professionalism which leaves me incredibly confident that I have made the best decision for my future in the industry.”

Nothing in the way of specific plans have been revealed for this deal, though fans should expect future collaborations with other creators as a result.

Liam Parkinson, Managing Director of Turopium Sports and Entertainment, is delighted that the deal is finally over the line.

“Signing Matt is a reflection of the hard work of the team here at Turopium. Our fast growth is a testament to our commitment to ensuring creators receive a higher quality of management than what is typically seen within our industry,” an official statement reads.

“Since day one we have been committed to ensuring that talent not only gets a better level of service, but they feel a part of their own growth and success. I couldn’t be happier to have Matt on-board and I look forward to providing him with a level of service our creators have come to expect from us, whilst also supporting him in becoming even more successful in the gaming space.”

This will be an exciting move for Matt and the agency, of course, but also for his growing fan base as well. With such an established name like Turopium now very much behind the Liverpool supporter, fans will be interested to see where he takes his content next.

Playing his cards close to his chest, he told us: “Keep your eyes peeled, something big is coming soon…”
