The FIFA 20 Web App release date is coming soon, with the application expected to become available worldwide on Wednesday, September 18, 2019. This would be right before the game’s official early launch via EA Access, offering Ultimate Team users a chance to open returning user packs and trade on the FUT transfer market.

Historically, the FIFA Web App has offered users the very first opportunity to interact with each new title and start building their FUT squad. Although coin totals will initially be significantly limited due to the restriction of not being able to play matches, if you follow the trading methods detailed in this guide, you should be able to build a respectable squad ready for launch.

The FUT Web App is a great tool to use all year round, however, right at the start of each Ultimate Team cycle is when you can get the very most out of it. For example, if you are playing the game via EA Access and don’t want to waste your ten hours of playtime on trading and squad building, you can simply conserve your time and do all this on the FIFA 20 Web Application.

The following information and FUT 20 Web App trading methods should help you to gain a better understanding of what to expect during this year’s FIFA 20 Ultimate Team launch, as well as providing you with easy ways to make coins during FUT Webstart.


Release Date & Schedule

First of all, let’s take a closer look at the past and expected release schedule of FIFA 20:

  • EA Playtesting (UK & Canada): March-June, 2019
  • Closed Beta Testing: August 9-22, 2019
  • Downloadable Demo: September 10, 2019
  • Web App Launch: September 18, 2019
  • EA Access/Origin Access: September 19, 2019
  • Special Editions (Early Access): September 24, 2019
  • Official Release Date: September 27, 2019

How to Access The FIFA Web App Early

Last year, only returning FIFA Ultimate Team players were given access to FUT Webstart. Although rules may be different this time, users were previously required to:

  • Set a security question before August 1
  • Play at least ten FUT matches on the same account
  • Enable login verification (Origin → Account → Security → Login Verification)
  • Confirm login verification by text or email

How to Make Coins During FUT 20 Webstart

FIFA 20 Ultimate Team FUT Squad Management

FIFA coins are never more valuable than they are at the start of each new FUT cycle. This is ultimately due to the scarcity of them, which also means that player prices are extremely high. By following these tips, you can maximise prior to and during the game’s release:

EA Access Trial Time

The FIFA 20 Web App should be used for pretty much all trading, squad management and the completion of SBCs (Squad Building Challenges). We highly recommend that you only use your EA Access trial time for playing FUT matches.

Coin Boosts

Following on from the previous point, you must activate coin boosts within the EASFC Catalogue. Make sure that you apply the 1,000 coin boost items first (start with the highest and work your way back to the lower ones). Accumulating as many coins as possible early on is key to getting ahead of the crowd and giving yourself enough to trade effectively.

Returning User Packs

Depending on your playtime during FIFA 19 Ultimate Team, you will be rewarded with Returning User packs. We recommend making a judgement call whether or not to sell the players in these. Consider their overall rating, stats, and competition in their specific league/position group. Keep an eye out on our Twitter for future updates on this.

FUT Web App Daily Gifts

Daily Gifts are expected to be available following the initial launch of this year’s Web Application. Make sure that you remember to login each day to open these, if you don’t you will miss them and they will disappear. These generally offer free FUT coins, as well as a range of free packs.

Starter Objectives & SBCs

Starter Objectives and Squad Building Challenges are a great way to earn easy Ultimate Team packs. The initial Objectives and Beginner SBCs are incredibly easy and take no time at all, we strongly recommend completing as many of these as you can. Starter SBCs in particular are a great way of clearing out any unwanted untradeable players from your FUT club.

EASFC Credits

Not only should you purchase coin boosts with your EASFC credits, there are also likely to be items available in the catalogue that can be sold on the FUT transfer market. In order to access the catalogue, you must do so by playing FIFA 20 on your console.

BIN Sniping / 59th Minute Method

This type of trading method is when you set price parameters via the search filters, and look to find players listed under their current market value. Competition will be low enough for this to work in the early stages of the game, although you must still be quick and have a good understanding of what players are actually worth within your price range.

Investing in Rare Silver Players

This is generally more of a longer term investment trading method, however, it can still garner quick profits if done correctly. Due to the nature of rare silver players and how they are obtained, there is a scarcity factor. Some silvers can skyrocket in price after the game launches each year. Look for 74-rated items with exceptional stats and then gauge the market.

400 Coin Bronze Pack Method

Admittedly, this has become slightly less effective in recent years, but Ultimate Team users do still claim to have success with it. This is where you open 400 coin bronze packs and list every single item on the FUT transfer market for one hour cycles, until you sell enough to make a profit (increasing the size of your transfer list via the EASFC catalogue can help a lot).

Saving FUT Coins

Seeing a bargain and not being able to take advantage of it can be incredibly frustrating. With this said, we always recommend keeping a small amount of FIFA coins spare to ensure that you have the means to make purchases like these when they present themselves.

Don’t Open FIFA Packs

Some people just can’t resist a good pack opening, but if you’re committed to having a solid squad ready for the first FIFA 20 FUT Champions Weekend League, then we advise you to stick to intelligent trading rather than pack luck. Sure, you could get lucky, but many people lose all of their coins by doing this and have nothing left to rebuild.

When Is the Best Time to Sell Players?

There is no definitive answer to this, as it’s simply impossible to accurately predict, but based on previous years we would recommend selling any unused/unwanted items just before Early Access becomes available (September 24, 2019). Selling on September 23 would probably be a sensible move.

FIFA 21 Team of the Year countdown: Nominees, Voting, TOTY Predictions

FIFA 21 Team of the Year will be here before you know it, and, we’ve got all the info on release dates, new cards, and a whole lot more. 

The FIFA 21 cycle is starting to get up to speed now we’ve made the jump from FUTMAS – this year, known as Freeze – and moved into the new year. 

TOTY is not to be confused with Team of the Season, which releases in the springtime, this promo is all about fans voting for the best players in the game.

The promo typically produces some of the best, non-icon cards in FIFA, but, will it be the same this year? Here’s everything that’s been confirmed.

Team of the Year always delivers in FIFA – and FIFA 20’s squad was insane.

When does Team of the Year come out FIFA 21?

As noted, FIFA 20’s FUTMAS event held the key to TOTY cards in the form of nominees and voting. Fans got to vote for a squad of 11 players from a pool of 55 nominees, with EA tallying the votes. 

EA took a slightly different approach this season and opened the voting for Team of the Year on Thursday, January 7 after announcing it the day prior.

With voting previously starting on Jan 7, we still don’t yet know when cards will start entering packs, though we would guess it could occur around the week of January 18, giving players time to vote on who they want to see in TOTY.

FIFA 21 TOTY nominees

In terms of who might be on the side itself, it’s going to be some of the world’s best players, so it’s incredibly difficult to pick out a few predictions.

The likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Robert Lewandowski, Virgil Van Dijk, Kevin De Bruyne, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar should all get nominee nods, but expect a few others as well.

Last year, the inclusions of Frenkie De Jong, Mathias De Ligt, and N’Golo Kante might have raised a few eyebrows, but that’s what players voted for at the end of the day. 

EA SPORTS

How to vote for FIFA 21 TOTY

Just like last year, the voting process is pretty simple, and it’s just a case of heading to the Team of the Year website. On the website, you will see an empty 4-3-3 template, in which you can fill in your preferred goalkeeper, defenders, midfielders, and attackers.

FIFA 21 TOTY card design

We already know what the TOTY Nominee card design looks like, as revealed in the promotional content above, but what about the Team of the Year cards themselves?

Unfortunately, the official TOTY card design has not been revealed as EA are likely waiting for the full team announcement to unveil the item. We’ll be sure to include that in here and also post it on Twitter as soon as it’s revealed.

Whatever it ends up being, it’ll be hard to top last year’s design, which was as majestic and elegant as a FUT card has ever been.

FIFA 21 TOTY SBCs & Objectives

Although EA love to give lots of opportunities for players to unlock untradeable cards through SBCs and Objectives, don’t expect there to be many for TOTY, since those cards are so high-rated and powerful.

That said, there should be at least one SBC involving this promotion, maybe not for a specific card outright but a pack that guarantees one of the TOTY players. We’ll have more info for you here once the promo kicks off and EA reveals all the details.

What time does TOTY come out FIFA 21?

Currently, there’s no indication as to when TOTY comes out, and 2021 is following a different vein than the early event start of 2020, which started on January 15. We will be sure to update this piece with any further information as it drops, so make sure to check back often.
