FIFA 19 Companion App Guide for iOS, Android


Keep the world of FIFA 19 Ultimate Team close at hand with the EA Sports FIFA 19 Companion App. You can manage your Ultimate Team any time, anywhere. Manage your team on-the-go with the FUT Companion App, now with features that give you even more control over your squad when you’re away from your console.

The EA Sports Football Club Companion App, for iOS and Android devices lets you access the FUT Transfer Market, manage your FUT squad, submit SBCs and purchase packs from the store anywhere your mobile device has an internet connection, at home or on the go. A version for Windows Phone is not available,

With this app you can manage the FUT 19 squad that you have in your PS4, XBox One or PC. There are many people that make confusion between the FIFA Mobile and the FIFA 19 Companion App. The first one allows you to play the game itself. You don’t need to have a console’s account to play it. The second one is like an Web App for mobile devices. It is an application that gives you the chance to manage your console’s squad in your mobile device. It requires you to have an Origin account connected to FIFA 19 (Xbox One PlayStation 4 or PC).


FIFA 19 Companion App Features

What can you do with this app?

FIFA 19 Companion App Guide for iOS, Android


Here is the list of the features for the FIFA 19 Companion App for iOS and Android Devices:

✅ Manage your FUT Squads and Club Items by optimizing Chemistry, Formations, and Players
✅ Extend your Squad Building Challenges experience
✅ Find and bid on players, staff, consumables and items on the FUT 19 Transfer Market
✅ Purchase Packs from the FUT Store
✅ View TOTW Squad Previews and History
✅ Plan your squad with the Concept Squads
✅ Complete Objectives
✅ 🆕 Multiple item views to cycle through, which mirror your console experience
✅ 🆕 The ability to search the Transfer Market directly from an SBC and the Active Squad
✅ 🆕 Redeem weekly rewards from Squad Battles, Division Rivals, and FUT Champions
✅ 🆕 Use advanced filters to make it easier to find the right players at the right time.

Let’s take a deeper look to what’s new this year:

For the first time ever, you can stay up-to-date on your competitive progress on the Leaderboards. Until now, you were ony able to do it on your console, but this year you can do it on the FUT Companion App.

In other years, you had to open your console just to redeem your weekly rewards. EA added that feature to the Companion App while FUT 18 was still live, but this is the first game release where it is possible to do it from the first day. Now you can claim your Squad Battles, Division Rivals, and FUT Champions weekly rewards without having to open your console.

Whether you’re building a new squad or completing a Squad Building Challenge, added Advanced Filters streamline the process of finding players within your club. These search filters include the option to filter by Most Recent Items, Quick Sell Value and Tradeable/Untradeable status.

A completely redesigned item flow allows you to manage your new items much more quickly, so that you can spend more time building your squad. Newly packed items are placed directly into your club, with a more user-friendly interface that helps you decide whether to keep, quick sell or transfer list items.

FIFA 19 Companion App Early Access

What you need to know about the FIFA 19 Companion App early access

FIFA 19 Companion App Guide for iOS and Android


Returning FUT 18 players whose accounts are in good standing can create their FUT 19 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 10. After that, you’ll need to log in to FUT 19 on your console or PC at least once to continue using both apps.

Early access on the FIFA 19 companion app is not available to everyone. You need to fullfil these conditions:

☑️ You must have created a FUT Club before August 1, 2018, to get early access to the FUT 19 Web and Companion apps.
☑️ Your FUT 18 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 18, 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.


FIFA 19 Companion App Menus

Understand how to use the FIFA 19 Companion App

FIFA 19 Companion App Guide for iOS and Android


The FIFA 19 Companion App features five main areas that you can access anytime on the left side of your screen:

Prepare for your next big match while away from your console. Manage your Formations, Players, Managers, and Consumables. Concept Squads allow you to plan your dream team with all Players in FUT.

Exchange Players from your Club by building unique Squads and meeting the challenge requirements. Once your Squad is complete, submit it to exchange your Players for exciting rewards, such as different SBC Players, Packs, Coins, and more. Complete full challenges on the Companion App and claim your rewards right away, or plan your Squad on mobile and finish it on your console later. New Challenges will be released throughout the year, so check back often!

Never miss out on an important transfer and keep tabs on market activity. The Transfer Market lets you list items from your club and bid on new Players, Consumables, and everything needed to build your Ultimate Team! Returning FUT 18 users will have full access to the Transfer Market when the FIFA 19 Companion app launches. New FUT 19 users will need to play a few games on FUT console before access to the Transfer Market is unlocked on the Companion App.

Build out your Club with Packs that can be purchased with Coins or FIFA Points. The FIFA 19 Companion App ensures you’ll never miss a special Pack offer or lightning round.

View and manage all the Players, Consumables and Club Items in your FUT Club directly from the Companion App.

  1. Can i get ultimate scream players in the app? Is the probability equal compared to the packs i open in the actual game?

  2. Hi Rodrigo, I want to ask if I can open the packs I won in Squad Battles and choose a reward option from Rivals through the companion. Usually I’m not in home when the Rivals rewards specifically come out. Thanks in advance.

  3. How many games do you need to play before you can access the Transfer market? Everywhere i’ve looked just says “a few”.

  4. Hi, using Fifa 19 companion app on Android. Latest update doesn’t work in so far as when on the transfer screen, the viewable list of players either sold or selling, or bought or buying shrinks to a thin strip just to the right of the menu bar. You can’t see anything. I have screen shots if you want them. Kind regards, Neil.
