Introduction to the FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Carryover Guide
We thought that creating a guide like this wouldn’t be really necessary since most players already know what they’ll be able to carry over to FUT 15. However, we started receiving several help requests concerning this theme. A lot of our followers have started playing FUT this year, so this is completely understandable. Even we ourselves have been in this position five years ago when we first started playing and looking for the same answers. We have been receiving these questions so frequently that we felt the need to look all over the internet and see if there are really that many people in the same situation… and yes there are. The bad thing is that amongst all the answers given by the most experienced players of the community, there are many, many inaccuracies and contradictions.
Whoever is familiar with us knows that we don’t like to leave the slightest questions unanswered. That is why we’ll be exploring everything there is to know about the FIFA 15 Ultimate Team carrying over: what you’ll keep from the previous game, what happens if you switch consoles, why you have to start from the bottom, what you need to do to switch to FUT 15 and how FIFA points transaction works. If your a FUT 14 regular gamer or fresh to the game, keep up with us as we clear things up. As always we will swot up your knowledge and bring you right up to date with what is going on!
What’s carried over to FIFA 15 Ultimate Team ?
This is the most important question. Will I keep my coins and players from FUT 14 ? What can I bring to FUT 15 ? We’ll be as clear as we possibly can:
These ARE NOT carried over to FUT 15:
– EASFC Catalogue Items;
– Match History;
– Current Division;
– Xbox Achievements or PSN Trophies.
These ARE CARRIED OVER to FUT 15:
– FC Credits;
– One-time changeable club name;
– FIFA Points (1).
If you didn’t know coins can’t be transferred to FUT 15, then you must be disappointed. We’ve all been there so don’t worry, you eventually get over it. Plus buying cards won’t help since they can’t be transferred as well. Don’t know what to do with the coins you’ve been arduously collecting for a year? We can help you with that.
If you’ve got Messi in your team and you’re buying FIFA 15, it’s time to say goodbye. None of the cards you currently have in your club will be transferred to FUT 15: not the players, staff, consumables or even your club items. Nothing.
EASFC Catalogue items
The EASFC Catalogue is kind of a store where players can exchange FC Credits for hundreds of items. For Ultimate Team it’s possible to increase the targets and transfer lists, receive coin bonuses, change the club’s name, increase the maximum number of squads and even buy “super” 99 contracts for your players. Since this catalogue varies from FIFA to FIFA, you won’t be able to bring items you purchased on previous games.

Are you that one who’s accomplished 10 thousand wins? Congratulations. Time to take a screenshot, otherwise this awesome deed will be easily forgotten, left behind to ashes. Your Wins/Draws/Losses history will be lost when you stop playing FIFA 14. It won’t count towards FIFA 15. And even if you decide to keep playing it, EA will put an end to it in less than 2 years because, well, they’d just rather not keep spending money on servers few people will playing at. In their words, they do this so they’re able to “enhance the user’s experience”. Better just go take a screenshot then, huh ?
Reaching division 1 has never been so hard as in FUT 14. If you’ve done it, you’re probably constantly struggling not to get relegated to division 2. What if you get relegated to division 10? This is what will happen when you start FIFA 15 Ultimate Team. If you think you’ll just humiliate your opponents, just forget it. Everyone starts at division 10: the good and the bad players.
The list of things you’re going to lose for FUT 15 is just endless, isn’t it ? Just like the 2006-2007 Juventus team, you will lose all your tournament and season titles if you start a new FIFA. Except for the fact that you haven’t done anything wrong.
Xbox 360 Achievements or PSN Trophies
Achieving objectives that each console grants you will not be related to FIFA 15, naturally, because they’re specific for each game. Waiting for a TOTW card from a pack? EA thanks your effort. Or not.
XP leveling is a system that a measures how experienced you are in the FIFA universe. It doesn’t matter the game mode, platform or the game on its own, basically you’re going to maintain on FIFA 15 the XP you have at the time. You can even go back to FIFA 14 and still earn XP. It’s shown on the superior right corner of the screen, placed below your ID. Maintaining your XP will give you some advantage over the beginners because you’ll have access to several EASFC Catalogue items they don’t.
FC Credits (Football Club Credits; FCC) is the coin used on EA Sports Football Club. Works exactly like the XP, being linked to your Origin account and not directly related to the FIFA you’re playing. It’s basically used to purchase EASFC Catalogue items and it’s shown immediately in front of the XP.
One-time changeable club name
One of the things EA Sports allows you to keep on FUT 15 is your club name. When you start it for the first time you’ll be asked if you wish to change it or just leave it the same. If you choose yes, you’ve got the right to keep it. You can only change it later buying the club name changing EASFC Catalogue item. If you choose no, you’ll be creating a new name and the old one will be available for other people to choose.
FIFA Points (1)
FIFA Points are an alternate to coins that are used to buy packs. If you don’t intend to spend all your FIFA Points on FUT 14, you can transfer them to FUT 15. You can even buy some by the end of FUT 14 so you can use in the FUT 15 released date, since it won’t be purchasable at the time. However, this is a one-time transfer, so you’ve got to be careful when you start the game for the first time.
FIFA Points can be shared only between same platforms, so if you buy them on Xbox 360 for FUT 15 you can’t use them on Playstation 4, but you can on Xbox One.

Why start from the bottom ?
Your FUT 14 players and coins are useless in FUT 15
So much effort for nothing. A whole year trying to get the best players for your team. So many hours spent setting up auctions and then you lose everything. This is probably what’s going on inside your head now… Everyone who’s been through this knows the feeling. But believe it or not, the truth is it just goes away as soon as you start a new FIFA and you go back to chasing that perfect team once again. You’ll see…
But why do we really have to start from the bottom and not be able to keep our cards and coins? It’s basically for three reasons:
Playing the same game all over again may not be very stimulating. It’s true that you might already have a good team and all, but going back to square one can be much more interesting than it seems to be, especially when everyone is doing the same. This year you’ve probably made a few mistakes and now it’s time to take advantage of what you’ve learned. It’s an opportunity to do it the right way to reach perfection. You can buy several managers right at the start and this will help you save tons of coins throughout the year, for example; you can buy that great player before his price starts to rise madly. Soon you’ll be conformed and will be telling yourself “I’m going to follow this awesome site’s tips and this time I will get Messi”.
Let’s not be hypocrites. As, players, there’s the motivation of building a whole new team and that’s quite enough, EA Sports’s only true reason to carry on would be the money. As soon as they “vanish” all those cards and coins assuming FUT 15 is a completely new game, they’re about to get some ridiculously high profit. It’s not only about forcing players to go for the new packs. It’s a complete new world for the FUT gaming community, everything loses its value from a moment to another; all the old cards and coins go to waste. Don’t think we’re talking small shares of the business. FIFA digital game sales’ annual growth rates have increased up to 80% and EA Sports already makes more money selling FUT packs than the actual game.
- Logistics Problems
If people would keep in FUT 15 everything they had back in FUT 14, there would be other problems concerning the game’s mechanics. It wouldn’t be the end of it, but that would certainly make the game more confusing and unfair. What’s the logic on having several different rated cards of the same player just because the season has ended? Is it fair to have your players underrated just because they’ve had a worse season? Where’s the fair play when you start the game having millions of coins while others have nothing? This would make the game unsustainable for beginners since all prices would be ridiculously high. In a way, it’s really necessary that the coin flow is managed so we can have a fair, competitive and sustainable game. And this can only be done once we start a new game.
What to do with all the cards and coins ?
Now that you know you’ll be having useless cards and coins, it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to do with them. Most players try and enjoy them until the very end. There are also people that decide to spend them all on packs – fair enough.
If you buy a PS4 or a XBox One, don’t forget to use the same PSN ID or Gamertag
The truth is that those coins could be converted to real money, but right now this isn’t really a brilliant deal. In two months before the release of the new game you won’t be getting more than 5-6 euros for each million of coins, and for another month past this is reduced to half. So here’s a lesson: if you want to be best rewarded for your effort you’re going to have to think about starting your business sooner next time.
If you’re a generous friend, find someone who’s not getting FIFA 15 and offer them you coins. They will certainly be very thankful. If you don’t know anyone in this situation, let us know so we can forward them to someone who needs. Bear in mind that very few people go back to playing an old FIFA after they’ve started playing a new one, so don’t worry about regretting a possible donation.
Starting FIFA 15 Ultimate Team
After so many disadvantages you might be wondering if it’s worth it or not getting the new FIFA 15. If you’re a fan of the series, it’s safe to say that we recommend it. Besides the renewed experience inside the pitch, you’ll be able to build your team based on what’s going on in the real life football. The transfer market will allow new combinations of players and their ratings will be updated. Before you know you’ll forget what was left behind.
In order to start playing FUT 15 you obviously need to buy FIFA 15. Use the same Origin account you’ve been using so that the system recognizes all your data: FCC, XP, club name and FIFA Points. The older players’ fidelity will be rewarded with early access to the Web App around 3 weeks before the official game release date; all that followed by free starter packs.

FIFA 15 Ultimate Team on a new console
Many players will use FIFA 15 as a reason to upgrade to the new consoles generation. If that’s your case, get to know what you have to do so that everything’s fine. This theme is a little more complicated than it seems, so we’ll divide it in three possible situations:
- Switching platforms
If you’re going from Xbox 360 to Playstation 4 or from Playstation 3 to Xbox One, you’ll only keep what’s linked to your Origin account. That is your XP and FCC. This may be nothing new regarding what we’ve already said in this guide, but still equally valid to those who are already playing FUT 15 and are going to switch platforms.
- FUT 14 to FUT 15 on the new generation
Switching consoles doesn’t mean any disadvantages since you use the same platform (Playstation or Xbox) and Origin account. We’ve talked about what’s being lost and kept earlier in this article.
- FUT 15 to FUT 15 on the new generation
Whoever plays FUT 15 on a console will be able to keep absolutely everything when they switch to another console of the same platform. Won’t see a difference. Just use the same Origin account and you’ll be able to see the system recognizing your XP, for example. However, you’ll be requested to restart Ultimate Team if you’re not logged in with your PSN ID or Gamertag. Don’t ignore this simple step.
The process for transferring FIFA Points from FUT 14 to FUT 15 was confirmed by EA Sports to us.
