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.


FIFA 21 TOTW 2 live: Lewandowski, Haaland, Kane, Saint-Maximin, more

EA SPORTS have released the second batch of Team of the Week players in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it looks like there are some exciting cards up for grabs this week.

Following the completion of another busy game week across football’s top-flight leagues, a new set of TOTW players has been released, featuring some huge names and valuable cards.


Dexerto made a number of predictions earlier in the week, included at the bottom of this article, so let’s see how they stacked up with leaks and ultimately, the official team as well.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2

The full Team of the Week #2 in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team!

Just as with the first Team of the Week, the second TOTW squad is stacked with top talent, such as the likes of Lewandowski, Courtois, Kane, and Haaland. While not as high-rated as those studs, the likes of Milan’s Hernandez and Newcastle’s Saint-Maximin should also draw a lot of attention as being “meta” players.


Here are some of the players you might be interested in:

  • Erling Haaland (86)
  • Robert Lewandowski (92)
  • Harry Kane (89)
  • Thibaut Courtois (90)
  • Ben Chilwell (84)
  • Theo Hernandez (83)
  • Jack Grealish (83)
  • Ollie Watkins (81)
  • Allan Saint-Maximin (83)
  • Renato Sanchez (82)
  • Marcel Halstenberg (84)

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2 leaked

Ahead of EA SPORTS confirming the full TOTW #2, the full squad was claimed to have been leaked – and the leaker even managed to get his hands on the same image that EA would end up tweeting out.

When did TOTW 2 go live in FIFA 21?

EA SPORTS revealed this next FIFA Team of the Week squad at 6PM (UK time) Wednesday, October 7, 2020. As per usual, they were announced and droped into packs at 6pm BST / 12pm CT / 1pm EST / 3am AEST.


These boosted player upgrades are now being announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21, unlike other years where we knew about them three hours prior.

FIFA 20 Team of the Week 32 predictions

What a week! Competitions around the world have come back for the 2020/21 season, soon after the end of last year’s staggering campaign. The back-to-back nature of these seasons, it seems, is going to lead to some exciting games.

The biggest news from the Premier League this week was Aston Villa and Tottenham each dolling out huge defeats for Liverpool and Manchester United respectively. Ollie Watkins scored three and assisted one as he led the Villans to a 7–2 victory over the champions, while Heung Min Son was unplayable against United.


There were a number of other standout performances across the weekend too. Neymar Jr. was at his electric best against Angers, while FIFA 21 cover star Erling Haaland kept up his goalscoring record in a 4–0 win over Freiburg on Saturday.
