Ultimate Team players cannot wait to build their first starter squad and soon enough they’ll be able to do just that. Here’s everything you need to know about the FIFA 21 Web App and Companion App, including the release date. 

Whether you will be playing the next game on Xbox One, PS4, PC, or waiting until the release of next-gen consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, everybody can access FUT early. Building teams before taking to the field is a staple of players’ calendars, and we’re quickly approaching that time of year again.

Many will be eyeing Premier League teams with the transfer window bringing some exciting news for fans of Man United, Chelsea, and other clubs. Others may look elsewhere, like Serie A, Bundesliga, or La Liga. There are strong teams all over Europe right now and soon we can start building.

Here, we look at everything to expect from the FIFA 21 Web App and Companion App, which release on PC and mobile devices respectively.

Players will be looking to make their first transfers as soon as they can – using the FIFA 21 Web App & Companion App.

FIFA 21 Web App release date

With the game officially landing this October, the FIFA 21 Web App will be be released on September 30, 2020. 

It is usually unveiled before the release of EA Play (formerly EA Access), which is coming out on October 1. More details on that can be found here.

FIFA 21 Companion App release date

Just like other years gone by, the Companion App will release a day after the Web App – October 1, 2020. This is the same date as the EA Play early access trial.

By the time both of these are available, all players – even those without EA Access – will be able to jump into FUT 21 and build their first team. They can then play with it using EA Play early access, which grants them 10 hours of gameplay in a pre-release trial of the game.

With September 30 being the launch date, the Web App is expected to land at some stage during the day. An ETA is unconfirmed, however.

There’s a chance that this startup time might be different for each region, but 6pm (BST) looks like the time a lot of content is being announced for the game. If that trend continues, the Web App could be landing at around that time as well. We’ll have to wait and see.

Can you buy packs in the FIFA 21 Web App?

FIFA 21 players will be hoping to get the likes of Mbappe in their FUT Packs as soon as possible.

This is a question people ask pretty much every year, and the answer is yes. There’s a bit of a catch, though.

You can open packs using the Web App, with FIFA Points, once the game has been released in early access. You can purchase them using the early access version and open via the Web App, but not you can not buy them directly through the FIFA 21 Web App & Companion App until the game’s worldwide release.

How to get free FIFA 21 rewards

Free rewards roll out daily in the Web App and Companion App. These can be small rewards to open up or a few extra coins to play with.

To get them, simply log-in every day and collect when you can. In the time between the start of the apps and release date, you could be looking at a few thousand coins extra to help build your first XI.

How to complete FIFA 21 Marquee Matchups SBC Week 4: solutions, cost

Marquee Matchups are back once again in FIFA 21, with two of Europe’s biggest derbies taking centre stage – Barcelona vs Real Madrid and Schalke vs Borussia Dortmund. 

Ever since the Marquee Matchups SBCs were added to FIFA, they’ve typically focused on the biggest games of the weeks. Though, sometimes like in Week 3, you’ve got to look elsewhere. 

After many clubs across the globe let their players depart for international duty, and the Marquee Matchups focused on four European matchups, club action is back for Week 4 – with the focus on some interesting clashes.

These include the first El Clasico of the season between Barcelona and Real Madrid, as well as the first Revierderby between Schalke and Borussia Dortmund. So, let’s get right into it. 

Barcelona vs Real Madrid

First off, the standout game from this round of Marquee Matchups is undoubtedly the Clasico but don’t worry, you won’t need to give up a Messi, Benzema, Hazard, or Ansu Fati to complete this SBC.

No, instead, you just need a player from either club, as well as some others from La Liga to get you to a squad rating of 75. According to FUTBin, this part of the SBC group will cost between 4,000 and 8,000 coins. 

  • Min #1 player from Barcelona or Real Madrid
  • Min #2 players from La Liga Santander 
  • Max 3 leagues
  • Min 75 Squad Rating 
  • Min 85 Team Chemistry

Schalke vs Borussia Dortmund

Moving on and sticking with the other derby – Schalke and Borussia Dortmund. Again, for this SBC, you’ll need a player from either side.

You’ll also need to use players from at least four different clubs while also achieving a Team Chemistry of at least 80. Again, it’s not too expensive, and should set you back between 5,000 and 9,000 coins if you need to start from scratch.

  • Min #1 player from Schalke or Dortmund
  • Min #4 different clubs
  • Max 3 in same league count
  • Min 75 Squad Rating 
  • Min 80 Team Chemistry

Southampton vs Everton

Aside from those two games, there is also an SBC for the matchup between Everton and Southampton – seeing as the Blues are, as of writing, topping the Premier League table. 

You don’t need players from either side, however, for this one – just players from the Premier League and one other league. Yet, you are limited to a maximum of six players from the same club.

Again, it won’t cost all that much. According to FUTBin estimates, it’ll set you back between 5,000 and 8,000 coins if you need to build the whole thing from scratch.

  • Min #2 players from La Liga Santander 
  • Min #2 leagues
  • Max 6 in players from same club
  • Min 74 Squad Rating 
  • Min 75 Team Chemistry

Galatasary vs Trabzonspor

Last but not least, the final game in this SBC group is a matchup between two Turkish sides – Galatasary and Trabzonspor. For this, you’ll need at least one Turkish player, but he doesn’t have to play for either team.

In addition to one Turkish player, you’ll also need at least eight silver players and a minimum of 75 when it comes to Team Chemistry. Like the other three, its pretty cheap, as FUTBin suggests it’ll cost between 5,000 and 9,000 coins.

  • Min #1 player from Turkey
  • Min #8 Silver players
  • Max 5 nations
  • Min 2 rares
  • Min 75 Team Chemistry

All in all, its another set of Marquee Matchups that aren’t incredibly difficult or expensive to complete, and have some nice rewards in store.
