FIFA 18 Web App Release Date

When FUT 18 Web App will be launched?

FIFA 18 Web App Release Date and FUT Webstart Details


When will be launched the FIFA 18 Web App? Except EA, no one can confirms the FUT 18 Web App release date. However, according to our past experience, the most likely date is Tuesday, September 19, 2017.

It is very hard to find out in which date the FIFA 18 Web App will be launched because, most of the times, EA Sports don’t launch in the announced date to avoid servers overloaded. Last year, for example, they didn’t even announce it.

In FIFA 14, they turned off the web app on September 11 and announced it to 15. However, EA Sports anticipated the FUT Webstart in two days, which means that it was out five days earlier than in FIFA 13. In FIFA 15, the web app was pulled down on September 12 and back up on 18. It was supposed to be on 17, but a few problems have delayed it. In FIFA 16, the FUT Web App was under maintenance from September 11 and was released worldwide on September 15 at 6pm UK, two days before the announced date. Finally, last year the app was released on September 20, exactly one week before the game release.


You can see the release dates of the last five years in the following table:

How to Get Access to the FIFA 18 Web App

What you need to do to access FUT Web App early access

FIFA 18 Web App Details for FUT 18 - Release Date, Access and More


FIFA 18 Web App early access, also know by FUT Webstart, is only available for returned players. It means that only players who have created a security question/answer before August 1st 2017 will be able to use it. If it is not your case, you will see a picture like this one and you will need to play in the console first before you can access to the App. In other hand, if you played FIFA 17 you will have to buy and play FIFA 18 in your console until midnight of October 1st (UK time) to keep using the FUT Web App for FIFA 18.


To access the FIFA 18 Web App, just follow this link. Be aware to only trust web app links from the official EA SPORTS domain names. Please, also note that it will currently be live for FIFA 17 Ultimate Team, until it’s under maintenance for FIFA 18. Once it goes online again, it is not possible anymore to access the FUT Web App for FIFA 17.

Login Verification is a mandatory step before you can access the FIFA 18 Web App. If you never activated, just go to your Origin account here and enable it. Then, just confirm the email or sms they have sent to you, verify your FIFA Ultimate Team Secret question and answer and store your codes in a safe place. As simple as that. If you already did it in the past, all will need is your EA account email address, password and answer to your secret question.

Be aware that last season there was an initial invite error stopping many users from accessing FUT webstart. If you do successfully get onto the FIFA 18 Web App launch, we strongly advise keeping the window open so that you are continually connected. In previous years users have exited during times of high traffic and have found it difficult to get back on.


FIFA 18 Web App Offers

Why FIFA 18 Web App early access is so important

FIFA 18 Web App Details for FUT 18 - Release Date, Access and More


FIFA 18 Web App early access is not a great time to make the first coins. As usual, you can buy low and sell higher but, since no one is playing it for the first time, it will be very difficult to make much coins with trading. Hopefully, there are a few offers you can use to boost your game:

The Starter Pack includes 34 cards (29 bronze, 2 silver and 3 gold). This pack, besides enough players to start playing, where silver and gold are included with 45 contracts each one, has also everything your club needs to start. In other words, the club item cards which will be part of the pack will be: at least one stadium, one ball, one badge and two kits (home and away). All the cards of this first pack are untradeable, which means that you can not sell them.

The Welcome Back Packs reward returning users for their loyalty – their FUT 17 gaming activity. Unlike what happened in the past, the antiquity has no effect on the welcome back packs a player receives. Most of the 12 cards in each pack will be gold, for which these offers assume particular importance in the start of your club. You’ll be rewarded too with two all players packs, each one with 4 bronze players cards, 4 silver players cards and 4 gold players cards (at least one rare).

During the first days Daily Gifts will also be offered, so the sooner you start the more you can win. Don’t forget to access your Apps every day. Each day you miss, it is one pack less you get. In the beginning, you’ll need all the cards you can get to start your first investments. The first daily gift will be available until midnight of FUT Web App release date and the last one until midnight of Monday, October 2 (UK time). Cards are more expensive in the early days, meaning daily gifts are relatively worth significantly more. Don’t forget to redeem your daily gift if you want to have a good start.


How to Make Coins During the FUT WebStart

A few tips to help you to make coins during the FIFA 18 Web App early access

FIFA 18 Web App Details for FUT 18 - Release Date, Access and More


If you want to build the team of your dreams, you must to have a good start. Here are a few tips you can use to make coins during the FUT Webstart.

1️⃣ Open all your first packs and sell the players and items that are less likely to increase in value upon the official release. List items on one-hour listing cycles and keep relisting until they sell.

2️⃣ Open the FUT Web App every day to receive free coins and daily packs.

3️⃣ If you have a lot of EASFC credits and Origin/EA Access, you can actually purchase kits and balls and sell them for a nice profit.

4️⃣ Don’t waste your precious coins buying packs during the FUT WebStart.

5️⃣ Sell items around the game’s release date for maximum profits.

6️⃣ In the first days of the market, which coincides with the first days of the FUT Web App, the market is really scarce. In this time, it is really difficult to find good deals because all the gamers have experience from the previous years and because the cash flow in the market is too low. However, as soon as new gamers start playing everything changes. That’s why you can’t miss the game release date, for example. You should also put a few coins aside to these times, since it is really easy to find cards at half price.
