Black Lives Matter on the back of the shirt

First of all. I think BLM at its heart is a great cause and I completely agree that abuse of black people should be stopped. Period. This is not a post to discuss any of the political aspects of this whatsoever.

The thing is I just started a career mode and now Premier League players are playing with Black Lives Matter on the back of their shirt instead of their name. I want the players name on the back of their shirt in my game. Can I get that somehow? Or do I have to wait for a squad update which resets player names on the back and start a new career mode when that is available?

    Do they take the knee before the whistle is blown? If not, then typical of EA to not do things properly.

    I'm afraid you'd have to wait. I myself am waiting to start a career mode. Showing your voice against racism is fine, but EA shouldn't have made this an inconvenience. We don't even know when they'll turn it back.

    I got a work around actually, not sure if this is a bug or what. Try going to customization>edit teams>reset all squads. Then go and start a new career. When you get the option, choose current squad instead of download new update.

    That then would reset all the teams to the original save file when FIFA 20 first come out, will be no January transfers there etc.

    You might have to restart Career Mode again. Download latest squads and you should get the players names back.

    Will do this now. I thought this was the case. Too bad because I played a good few hours before I realized what had happened. Weak stuff from EA but I realize they stopped caring about what their implementations does to career mode a long time ago.

    When they update the promoted premier league teams. The updated face scans aren't registered on the current career mode. You have to restart career mode just to get them.

    EA need to start updating the players even when you start a career mode.

    Yeah I know. They need to separate all these graphics from the squad updates. It's been a problem area in FIFA for years and many of us have been vocal about it here, but they just don't care.
