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.
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.
FIFA 21 Web App start time
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?
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.
