EA Play 10 Hour Trial

EA’s paid subscription service EA Play will give members the chance to play FIFA 21 from Thursday, 1 October.

This means you get the game a full eight days before the official release date!


There is a catch though, as you will only get 10 hours of game time. Still, better than nothing!

It is super easy to sign up, just visit the EA Play site here to get started.

FUT Web App

The FUT Web App is the official platform to buy and sell players on the Ultimate Team transfer market even before the game launches.
