FIFA 19 Weekend League - Frequently Asked Questions QUALIFICATION

QUESTION 01

HOW DO I QUALIFY FOR THE FIFA 19 WEEKEND LEAGUE?

You can qualify for the Weekend League exclusively via FUT Champions points. These points can be gained via FUT Division Rivals and via Weekend League. As soon as you get 2,000 points, you can redeem a token that you can use to enter in any Weekend League.

QUESTION 02

I’M IN FUT RIVALS DIVISION 1. DOES IT MEAN THAT I’M ALREADY QUALIFIED FOR THE UPCOMING WEEKEND?

No. To be qualified for the Weekend League, you need to sum 2,000 FUT Champions points, regardless the division you are.
Every game you play in FUT Rivals will take you one step closer to qualifying for the Weekend League using the FUT Champions Points. The number of these Points earned for each game is dependant on your performance and current Division. The better you play, the more points you earn. Each Division has a multiplier on your FUT Champions Points, so the higher the Division you are in, the faster you’ll rack up Points. Instead of the high pressure of Daily Knockout Tournaments, the new qualification system through Rivals will give more players a chance to compete. Plus, every game played in qualification also helps you earn rewards as part of the Division Rivals Weekly Competitions.

QUESTION 03

IS IT TRUE THAT SILVER 2 IS NOW NOT ENOUGH TO QUALIFY?

Yes, it is. From FUT 18 to FUT 19 the qualification rules have changed. Now, you need to win points to redeem a token. Starting at Silver 1 (11 wins or more), the rewards earned include the full amount of points required to join another Weekend League. Additionally, every tier below 11 wins also includes some FUT Champions Points that will get you closer to another attempt at qualifying for the Weekend League. The old rules are not valid anymore:
1 winning one of the daily knockouts available (four consecutive wins);
2 being promoted from division 2 to division 1 on FUT online Seasons;
3 holding on FUT online Seasons division 1;
4 winning the FUT online Seasons division 1 title;
5 reaching silver 2 or higher, in the previous weekend league.

QUESTION 04

CAN I QUALIFY EVEN IF I AM IN DIVISION 10?

Yes, it is possible. However, in a lower division you get less points for each win. In other words, you will need to play more to achieve the qualification for the Weekend League. For example: in division 10, you need to win 100 matches in a single week. It is important to notice that this isn’t absolutely true, since you win points every time you play, even if you don’t win the game, and you also win a few points at the end of your FUT Rivals week.

QUESTION 05

CAN I USE THE TOKEN ANYTIME I WANT

Yes, it doesn’t expire. You don’t need to play the following Weekend League if you don’t want it. You can use the token to play in any other time. Remember that you must redeem your FUT Champions Points prior to the start of the Weekend League you want to participate in. If you don’t redeem them in time, you can hold onto them to use in a future Weekend League.



 
 
 
FIFA 19 Weekend League - Frequently Asked Questions QUALIFICATION

QUESTION 06

HOW MANY TOKENS CAN I STORE?

Only one. You cannot have more than one token at a time. In fact, your points stop as soon as you reach 2,000. When claiming FUT Champions Weekend League rewards, you will receive a number of FUT Champions Points based on your final rank. Those FUT Champions Points, when claimed, will be added to your current total of FUT Champions Points. As you can only hold up to 2,000 FUT Champions Points at one time, any Points gained that would push your total over 2,000 Points will be lost.

QUESTION 07

HOW MANY GAMES I HAVE TO PLAY IN EACH WEEKEND LEAGUE?

From the start of FUT Champions in FUT 19, you will have the option to play up to 30 games during each Weekend League on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. While reducing the number of games for Playstation 4 and Xbox One players in each Weekend League from 40 to 30, EA’ll maintain the same level of rewards every week per tier, ensuring that Weekend League continues to be the place where you can earn the best rewards in FUT. Increasing the maximum number of games from 25 to 30 for FUT Champions on PC will, for the first time, allow players to earn the same level of rewards for playing the Weekend League as console players.

QUESTION 08

WHY I CAN’T FIND THE DAILY KNOCKOUT TOURNAMENTS?

You won’t find. They were replaced by the FUT Division Rivals.

QUESTION 09

WHEN DO FUT RIVALS CAN BE PLAYED?

This game mode is available everyday. It can be played in weekends, when Weekend League is running.



 
 
 
FIFA 19 Weekend League - Frequently Asked Questions CALENDAR

QUESTION 10

WHICH MODE SHOULD I PLAY ON THE WEEKEND: FUT RIVALS OR WEEKEND LEAGUE?

Unless you are not qualified for the Weekend League, you should always play it. While playing WL, you are also winning FUT Rivals points and FUT Champions points.
When designing Division Rivals, EA tried that players didn’t feel penalised for playing Champions over Rivals or vice versa. With the likelihood of coming up against tougher opponents in the Weekend League, they wanted to ensure that your Skill Rating, which determines your Division in Rivals, remained unaffected by the matches you play in Weekend League. Whilst your Skill Rating remains unaffected by playing the Weekend League, each game played will earn some Weekly Score in Division Rivals helping you improve your standing in the Rivals Weekly Competition. That means that every game played in the Weekend League contributes to unlocking to rewards in both the Weekend League and Division Rivals.

QUESTION 11

THE IN-GAME CALENDAR SAYS THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE MORE ROUND. WHY?

FUT Champions was a big investment for Electronic Arts and there is no reason to end it. The FIFA 19 Weekend League takes place uninterruptedly between October 2018 and August 2019. The schedule is being published as the competition goes on, and for that reason sometimes it shows one more round and at other times it shows two or three rounds. You can check the complete calendar clicking here.

QUESTION 12

I PLAYED THE WEEKEND LEAGUE BUT I DIDN’T RANKED. WHY?

You need to complete at least five matches to rank. It doesn’t matter the results. If you play less than five matches, you will not receive any reward for that week. It’s like you haven’t played at all.

QUESTION 13

I ALREADY FINISHED THIS WEEKEND LEAGUE CAMPAIGN BUT I HAVEN’T RECEIVED MY REWARDS. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Wait. The weekly rewards are not delivered as soon as you finish your matches. According to Electronic Arts, you will receive them before the start of the next Weekend League. Most likely, they will be delivered to you around 8am (UK time) of every Thursday. You can follow our calendar to know the exact time for each round.

QUESTION 14

I WOULD LIKE TO OPEN MY REWARDS BUT MY CONSOLE IS NOT AVAILABLE. DO I HAVE ANY OTHER OPTION?

Yes! Since FIFA 18, it has become possible to see and open your weekly and monthly rewards through the Web and Companion Apps.



 
 
 
FIFA 19 Weekend League - Frequently Asked Questions REWARDS

QUESTION 15

IS THERE ANY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE REWARDS FOR GOLD 1/2/3 OR SILVER 1/2/3?

Yes. Each level has its own rewards (you can see them clicking here). However, when FUT Champions was created, in FIFA 17, there was no difference on the monthly rewards. That’s probably why so many people still make this question. You can check the weekly rewards for the three platforms on our website.



 
 
 
FIFA 19 Weekend League - Frequently Asked Questions REWARDS

QUESTION 16

WHERE ARE MY MONTHLY REWARDS?

There are no monthly reward packs in FUT 19. They were replaced by Weekly Reward Player Picks, giving you a choice between which red FUT Champions player items you want to add to your squad. This way, you earn the right level of rewards for the weekends that you do play in, and you are not penalised for the weekends that you don’t play in.



 
 
 
FIFA 19 Weekend League - Frequently Asked Questions REWARDS

QUESTION 17

IS THERE ANY RISK TO LOSE THE PACKS IF I DON’T OPEN WHEN I RECEIVE THEM?

No. The packs you receive as Weekend League rewards can be opened anytime. They don’t expire. If you want, you can save them to open when better cards are in packs, as is the case of the Team of the Year.



 
 
 
FIFA 19 Weekend League - Frequently Asked Questions REWARDS

QUESTION 18

I WILL BE OUT WHEN EA RELEASES THE WEEKLY REWARDS. WILL I LOSE THE REWARDS?

No. You don’t have to claim your weekly rewards before the next round starts. They will be waiting for you as soon as you open FUT on your console next time.



 
 
 
FIFA 19 Weekend League - Frequently Asked Questions REWARDS

QUESTION 19

ARE THE CARDS I RECEIVE AS REWARD UNTRADEABLE?

Depends. The cards from the basic weekly rewards are tradeable. You can sell them on the transfer market. The cards from the player picks are untradeable.



 
 
 
FIFA 19 Weekend League - Frequently Asked Questions REWARDS

QUESTION 20

WHY I DIDN’T RECEIVE MY FUT RIVALS REWARDS ALONGSIDE WITH THE WEEKEND LEAGUE REWARDS?

That’s because FUT Rivals rewards are delivered Thursday morning, whistle FUT Champions rewards are delivered one hour later.

QUESTION 21

I ALWAYS PLAY IN THE SAME STADIUM. IS THIS NORMAL?

Yes, since January 2018 that all matches started to take place in the FeWC Stadium, with the Time of Day always set to night and weather always set to clear.

QUESTION 22

HOW DO I TURN ON THE TRAINER DURING A WEEKEND LEAGUE MATCH?

That is not possible. That feature is not available in this game mode.

QUESTION 23

IN THE LOADING SCREEN, MY OPPONENTS ALWAYS WEAR MY UNSELECTED ACTIVE KIT. IS THIS A BUG?

No. In order to avoid you to recognize your opponent, EA doesn’t allow you to see which kit he is using.

QUESTION 24

HOW THE MATCHMAKING WORKS IN THE FUT CHAMPIONS?

The first important goal for FUT Champions is to ensure that every weekend is a clean slate for players to compete for wins and rewards. To do this, EA uses something called ‘form’ as a key driver of matchmaking in each Weekend League. Everyone starts each weekend fresh at zero form, moving up or down with each win or loss. In football terms, match form of W/L/W/W/W would result in a +3 form. Form can only drop as low as -10 and go up as high as +15. Players with similar form are then paired in matchmaking. The result is that players that are better than average in the Weekend League (which is already a very skilled group of players) will quickly boost their form. The higher their form gets, the more challenging the competition becomes. Only the best of the best can consistently beat players with high form and attain Elite and Top 100 status. The second key piece to matchmaking is location. Players are matched based on their location and proximity to EA’s dedicated game servers to ensure quality matches.

QUESTION 25

WHAT HAS CHANGED ON THE CHAMPIONS CHANNEL?

One of the major changes is the addition of controller inputs, which allows you to see buttons the top players are pressing in every scenario of play, including during instant replays. On top of button inputs, you also have the ability to skip between stoppages in play in a replay and jump ahead / backwards on the timeline, allowing you to have greater control over the replays you want to watch.

  1. If I go to the leaderboard and go to the previous month, it shows me that I was gold 3 with 56 wins. Do I get gold 3 monthly rewards, or does this rank mean nothing?

  2. Can the form e.g. (W/W/W/L/L) that applies for weekend league be contributed by other game modes. Example: before i start my first game of WL, I purposefuly lose 5 games on single player mode to lower my rating to find easier opponents. then for example i win my WL games and i am going (W/W/W/W/W). Will my rank decrease if I hop onto another game mode again and start losing or will it remain the same for WL competition. My real question is, does your last 5 W/L record in other game modes contribute to weekend league rankings?
    Thank you.

  3. So, if im in div 6, i will play against guys from div 1,2, etc., but if im gonna lose 10 matches straight, my form will be -10 and there will be hgiher chance, that im gonna play against some lower div to, right?

  4. i got silver 1 so do i have to redeem them to qualify for the weekend league or do i automatically qualify for the weekend league?

  5. I can’t really find out how many games are remaining in each weekend league. I also don’t like the not seeing your opponents kit thing. It’s boring to keep playing against your kits..

  6. Yes havjng a small window to redeam and not possible to do so in the app is a joke 😡anything to hand out less rewards though hey

  7. They should allow u to redeem entry for the weekend league via the companion app. As i was away from my console and had to claim my rewards on the app

  8. I finished high enough to get 2000 Qualification points last weekend, do the weekend league rewards come out in time to use them to re-qualify for this weekend?

  9. 13 hours to join WL??? I have a work to go to! I work 12 hours and have travelingtime…

    So cause i work in the evening i cant play WL?

    EA add a pre enter Button or realese the WL prizes on wednesday!

    This is hilarios.

  10. This is Madness???
    I hade to Wait for My 2000 points on thursday evening. And then i have to register for WL before it starts?

    So when i work on thursday evening/night here in europé i cant even play in WL???

    Last year was good cause i autoregister due to My perfomence the week before.

    This year i cant play cause Im aint home to register even if i qualified.

    EA????

  11. I qualified for this weekends weekend league last weekend. Now this week again I collected 2000 points. But because I am already qualified for this weekend I can’t redeem them for this weekend. But also because I am already qualified I cant see my 2000 points anywhere. Will I have my 2000 points after this weekend? Can I use my 2000 points after this weekend for the next weekend league?

      • I redeemed my first 2000 points friday last week. Then I didnt know i had to redeem the point before friday. So because I redeemed then too late I qualified for thos weekends weekend league. But this week I collectee again 2000 points at fut rivals. I couldnt redeem them for this weekends weekend leagie because I was already qualified. But what will happen with the 2000 points i collected this week via fut rivals? I don’t see them anymore.

  12. Can I enter the weekend league after it has started?
    I submitted my scores and it automatically entered me in the next weekends tounament

      • I think i made that mistake too.. Like i litteraly claimed my rewards and got 2000 points 2 minutes after the weekend league started.. And i just got qualified for the next week.. Completely broken system if you ask me, because lots of people dont claim their rewards thursday evening, but when they decide to play the weekend league once again.. What makes it more confusing, is that my screen says that the weekend league opens in 3 days… and it in Friday right now..

  13. Hi,

    I have 633/2000 in champions qualification progress. There are 7 more days for the first weekend league. Say, I have only 1900/2000 before that weekend, and I don’t play weekend league. Will my points reset the following Monday after the weekend league ?
