No way around the 10 hour limit? (Just for kickoff on second account)

I’ve used my hours on my main account. I can see that the invite yourself patch has been patched, that’s not the issue.

The issue is I have friends coming over tonight for a fifa session, some have travelled from far as it’s tradition. My plan was to use the 10 hours on my main for UT but just access kick off on my other account to use with the lads but it won’t let me. I’ve paid for the access for a year on my second account (forgot to cancel).

Anyone found any way around it as it’s really going to spoil the night if I can’t get on

@EA_Andy any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Just wait until Tuesday like the rest of us.
    It was fun while it lasted but the party is over.
    I've got 6 hours left so that's 3 today, 3 tomorrow and nothing on Monday until midnight.

    You’ve missed the point. I’m not trying to gain extra hours on my main account. My friends won’t be here on Monday.

    I heard it might be possible on Xbox. But, PS4 is a no go..

    Edit : Nevermind. You can't get your ten hours on a second account? No idea why that would be.

    Lads please read the post. I don’t want extra time on my account. I’d like the 10 hours trial that I’ve paid for on my second account to play kick off with friends

    Says that I need to sign in the the profile which downloaded the app. Seems odd

    Basically my plan b was to get my friends profile on my Xbox and download the app on there but the way this is going looks like that won’t work either. Very frustrating.

    It's not ideal. But, if you are only playing kickoff with friends. Maybe just play the demo?

    That’s not a bad shout tbh. It would be nice to play mystery ball and other stuff as well though. Really hope there is a work around. Not bothered about paying more money, I just want to salvage the night

    Could always pay for EA Access on a different account for another 10 hour.

    That’s exactly what I’m talking about. I’m trying to get it on my other account but It’s like it’s one 10 hours per console.

    If you signed out of your main account entirely, created a new one then bought EA Access again I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. At the end of the day it’s a completely different account. If siblings shared a console but had separate accounts for example, would they not be able to both buy a subscription and both play their 10 hours separately? Seems strange, EA are still making money from you so they’re not losing out. Hope you get it sorted. At the end of the day you can still play Fifa 19, not going to be a huge difference.

    Exactly my thinking. Surely it must be possible.

    My second account is years old, been paying access on it for a full year so not sure what’s going on?

    @EA_Andy sorry to be a Norse mate but could really do with an answer if it’s possible or not

    Can you try signing out of all your accounts entirely. Create a new account so it has no association with your current accounts (other then bank details I guess) then try buying a months EA Access and downloading Fifa?

    He is saying he bought access on his second account but it won't let him play on his second account he isn't talking about his main account.

    Go to xbox store with that second account (new payed 10 hours) but on PC browser.
    Search FIFA20 game.
    You need to click Get FIFA trial, and then install on my devices. Game will start downloading and then it will stop immediately because its already downloaded.
    Start game with second profile.

    Thats how i make it work with my brothers account on same console as my account. But this is on XBOX and i think its same thing for ps. That you must "buy" trial through store on account.

    Ok at least that’s confirmed it works the way I want it to. Now I just need to find out why it’s not working for me 🤷‍♂️.

    Won’t even let me sign in to ea access on any account atm. Says something went wrong. 🙄

    What? Delete fifa 20. Log off from your ps4. Log in with second account create new psn and ea account. Download EA access and play the trail.

    You can't stack hours on your main ultimate team but pretty sure you can play the trail on a second account which you can play kick off with friends

    I had to use another console (got one upstairs) in order to get 10 hours on second account but once activated can use main console to play it.
