FIFA 20 Companion App

Keep the world of FIFA 20 Ultimate Team close at hand with the EA Sports FIFA 20 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. There isn’t any Windows Phone version available.

With this app you can manage the FUT 20 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 20 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 20 (Xbox One PlayStation 4 or PC).

FIFA 20 Companion App Early Access

What you need to know about the FIFA 20 Companion App early access

FIFA 20 Companion App Early Access

Returning FUT 19 players whose accounts are in good standing can create their FUT 20 Club, start trading, and claim returning user packs. Early access to the Web and Companion Transfer Market ends at 12:00 a.m. BST on October 9. After that, you’ll need to log in to FUT 20 on your console or PC at least once to continue using both apps.

Early access on the FIFA 20 companion app is not available to everyone. You need to fullfil these conditions:

☑️ You must have created a FUT Club before August 1, 2019, to get early access to the FUT 20 Web and Companion apps.
☑️ Your FUT 19 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 19, 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.

Understand how to use the FIFA 20 Companion App

FIFA 20 Companion App Guide for iOS and Android

The FIFA 20 Companion App features five main areas that you can access anytime on the left side of your screen:

1 SQUAD

2 SQUAD BUILDING CHALLENGESs
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.

New Challenges will be released throughout the year, so check back often!

3 TRANSFER MARKET
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 19 users will have full access to the Transfer Market when the FIFA 20 Companion app launches. New FUT 20 users will need to play a few games on FUT console before access to the Transfer Market is unlocked on the Companion App.

4 FUT STORE
Build out your Club with Packs that can be purchased with Coins or FIFA Points. The FIFA 20 Companion App ensures you’ll never miss a special Pack offer or lightning round.

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

  1. My account is banned from the transfer market on FUT 19. Can I see in the web app if I am still banned or do I need to buy the game to figure out that?
