FIFA 18 Companion App Early Access

What you need to know about the FIFA 18 Companion App early access
 

FIFA 18 Companion App Guide for iOS, Android

 

Returning FUT 17 players whose accounts are in good standing can create their FUT 18 Club, start trading, and claim returning user packs. Early access to the Web and Companion Transfer Market ends at 12:00 a.m. GMT on October 9. After that, you’ll need to log in to FUT 18 on your console or PC at least once to continue using both apps.

Early access on the FIFA 18 companion app is not available to everyone. You need to fullfil these conditions:

☑️ You must have created a FUT Club before August 1, 2017, to get early access to the FUT 18 Web and Companion apps.
☑️ Your FUT 17 account must still exist.
☑️ Your account needs to be in good standing. If you were banned or had other actions taken on your account in FUT 17, you won’t get early access.

Rewards are based on your account’s good standing in the game, along with your player history and engagement. This is why your rewards may be different from your friend’s. Besides that, returning user rewards are tied to your specific console account. So, if you switch platforms or create a new account on the same platform, your rewards won’t carry over.
