EA SPORTS has dropped FIFA 21 Title Update 14, but don’t fret, there’s no major gameplay changes. However, a host of bugs have been fixed in Ultimate Team and Career Mode, and general visual updates are coming.

The latest FIFA 21 update isn’t necessarily the most groundbreaking. As the game’s cycle wanes and eyes gravitate towards FIFA 22, EA are just making sure any game-breaking bugs get squashed on the spot.

In Update #14 on April 14, that’s mostly to do with Ultimate Team. However, some interactions with Career Mode and visual bugs have been fixed as well.

American FIFA fans will be eager to see Christian Pulisic make the TOTW cut.
There’s not a lot going on in FIFA 21 Title Update 14 gameplay-wise, but there’s plenty of bug fixes.

What’s in FIFA 21 Title Update #14?

Regarding FUT, most of the bugs were to do with freezes and small equip issues.


The biggest of the bugs ⁠— which maybe cost a few players games in Weekend League ⁠— saw them accidentally forfeit matches due to the tile hovering over the quit button and not resume match on occasion.

Issues with the FIFA Playtime tool, designed to help players set limits on their time in-game, have also been fixed in both FUT and Career Mode. A bug with Playtime was chewing through players’ allocated games per day quickly if they turned the setting on.

Finally, some visual updates to kits and stadium ad-boards were added.
