by David Purcell


February 4 update: EA have re-enabled Quick Sell Recovery. The developers had previously disabled the feature, temporarily, while looking into some issues.

Original article continues below, showing you how to use it.

EA SPORTS have revealed a brand new quick sell recovery fix for FIFA 20, allowing Ultimate Team players the opportunity to get back cards that they have discarded for the first time ever. 

Those that have played FUT will know the game mode includes one of the easiest ways of removing items from your club, and that's the quick sell tool – or what was previously the discard function. This hands gamers the minimum value for what they have, taking their player/item in return.

While that sounds like a great way of removing some of the unwanted stuff, it can also be a nuisance if you accidentally choose to get rid of the wrong thing for just a measly discard value. Imagine losing something like a 200,000 coin player for nearly 600.

The last thing you want to do with a valuable card is quick sell it, but it can happen accidentally.


When opening a lot of packs, with how fast the quick sell function works in FIFA 20, it can be easy to swipe the wrong way on a valuable asset and be left devastated in the process. Well, until now.

The game's developers have released a new fix that allows you to retrieve items that you have lost. This was announced via the FIFA Direct Communication Twitter account on January 30.

So, without further ado, let's take a look at how it works in FIFA 20. It's worth noting that you will have to download the FIFA Web App or Companion App to be able to access the new feature. So far, this hasn't rolled out on console.

How to use the Quick Sell Recovery feature

  1. Log in to the FIFA Web or Companion App.
  2. Click the Club menu.
  3. Click Quick Sell Recovery.
  4. Use the calendar icon to find the day you quick sold the item you want to get back.
  5. Choose the player or item you want to recover.
  6. Click Recover.

Once this has been done, the card will appear in your Unassigned box and will be available to play with again. The game will take back the coins that it credited you in the first place for quick selling a card.

Knowing what you now know, you'll have a safety net if you quick sell a player by mistake – or if somebody is toying with you and managed to discard one of the best players on your account.

You do have to remember the date it happened, though, so do keep that in mind if you want to reverse something you did in-game.
