Hello!

With the Web App launching today I know everyone will be eager to get into the FUT Transfer Market.

For details around transfer market access we do have this article which I'd recommend reading.

The key points are this:
  • Not everyone will have access when the Web/Companion App launches
  • You should get a message telling you whether you can access in-game when the game launches, or whether you are banned completely (images are in the article above)
  • No-one on the forum team, or in the support team via EA Help can grant access. You will need to do whatever is mentioned in the message you receive.

Again, I fully understand that everyone is eager and awaiting transfer market access, but I wanted to set expectations around not only the fact that some players won't get in, but also that there isn't anything that can be done in terms of getting you in early, before the game is out.

    Usually a transfer ban won't carry across games, but as I mentioned in the post - you should get a clear message advising you whether you can access in-game, or if you are banned completely once the web app comes out.

    I’ve never had a problem getting access, do you know why some don’t get access @EA_Andy ? It seems distinctly unfair.

    It's really not something we can get into for many reasons.

    All I will say is, in terms of what needs to happen for access to be given - it's the same for everyone.

    @EA_Andy

    If you had web access every FIFA you played for ~5 FIFA's straight, then swapped console a few months ago, and played maybe 50 hours of FIFA 19 on the new console (but no FUT games, just Pro Clubs and Online Seasons) is it likely you'll get Transfer Market Web Access for 20 when the app launches today?

    Can't you just wait a few hours and find out? What's the point, there's nobody here that can give you the answer.

    I didn't get access last year when I switched from Xbox to PS4.
  • Imo it’s ridiculous that we always have to wait this long for a webapp. It’s almost 4 pm in the Netherlands and still nothing. In other countries worldwide it it already the 19th. Makes no sense, just throw the webapp online.

    If it was a case of just "throwing it online" whenever, we'd probably do that.

    Appreciate everyone wants it as soon as possible but you're going to have to wait a little longer.

    You realise that even having a web app in the first place isn’t a right, it’s a privilege? If they announced a set time they’d be making a rod for their own back as there’s all sorts of issues that could affect it, and then that’d be wrong.

    There’s plenty that I could criticise EA for but with this its a case of damned if they do and damned if they don’t as people are so entitled.

    I can wait 5 more minutes but that’s all! :D

    It hardly a wise decision to frustrate your fanbase. Everyone be trying to log in at the same time now..

    What would be the difference if it was released earlier? You'd still have everyone logging on but at an earlier time.

    If you're concerned about everyone trying at the same time and getting frustrated would you prefer your account to be delayed longer?

    Releasing it as early as they do is the opposite of trying to frustrate their fanbase.

    You have to wait for things in life, it’s just the way it is, I’m terrible at being patient but you have to deal with it, the web app will come when it comes, no point getting wound up by it.
  • Seems like it was released at around 21:30 UK time last year on the scheduled date. I think we're in for a long wait, boys.

    Kids are at school. When they are out they are home and all be trying signing in. Just wait for all the complaints, just because you guys decided to not do a soft launch last night or early in the morning.
