Gabriel Torres got an IF this week for a performance (hat trick) for Huachipado (Chilean League).

Nevertheless, his IF was released for his old club, Lausanne Sport (Swiss League).
As I'm Swiss, I bought him for 10k.
(didn't even realise the card was mistakenly at Lausanne)

An hour or so later, EA tweeted this:


funny thing is, they actually changed his card to the correct club - which in fact is in FUT.

But at the same time, they made the card untradable:

it's onlya few coins, so I don't care.
Just wanted to share it for the laughs, personally was really confused for a moment :D

    no, I got the untradable card, without getting the coins back.

    I could discard for 9.272 though if I wanted

    The Chilean league isn't in FUT anymore? I guess I didn't notice, but there are a few random silvers if you search on the market.

    Pretty absurd if they went and manually changed the club on a card you've already purchased.

    The tweet also says it's a "league that is not available in FUT", but it's literally available as a search option in the game:

    There are players when you search the league, though it's definitely not every player. No idea how these ones made it in over the others.

    exactly, checked that as well.

    Also, in the OP there's a screenshot of the card as it is in my club now.
    they literally changed it to the correct league & club - which they claimed were not in FUT.

    Mistakes like that shouldn't happen.
    Do we get a new IF now? I guess not.

    The players that you see on the market are transfers aswell. Same case as Torres but they never cared to remove those

    probably because of legal reasons. They dont own the license to that league and for that reason players cant be on the market

    Players from that league are currently listed on the market and have been for the entire year.

    I think they might've lost the rights. I used those heavily during flash SBC's and realised they've dried up from my club.

    In comparison I'm still massively stocked with Colombian, Argeninian + Korean league bronzes and silvers.

    But those players were not in their promotional poster. And maybe they still had the license when those cards were released and ran out after.. Who knows

    @pekkaa88
    if that's the case, why change the card from Lausanne Sport to the Chilean club?
    why not juat leave it as it was? like they actually announced in the tweet?
