FIFA 21 Weekend League DELAYED - Ultimate Team comp. pushed back

FIFA 21 celebrates it's one-week birthday today, but it hasn't been quite plain sailing so far.

Teething issues are common after a game launch, but given FIFA 21 had a 10-hour trial a week before release, three days early access and has seen three title updates drop already, fans may have expected better.

Monday Night League

FIFA's Weekend League normally commences at 2am ET / 7am BST on Fridays,. running until 2am ET / 7am BST on Monday.

ON PAUSE - FIFA fans may have to grind into Monday to get their games done!

However, due to "unforseen circumstances" this week's competition will be pushed back to Saturday at 2am ET / 7am BST, running until 2am ET / 7am BST Tuesday.

What's the problem?

The difficulty here is that for Weekend League, players must play a total of 30 matches to earn a range of rewards.

This has thankfully come down from 40 on previous FIFA titles, but even still, many players will struggle to play their 30 matches.

With pushing the weekend league back, the chance of playing some of your matches after work or school on Friday evening has gone.

Players will now have the opportunity to finish off their Weekend League's on Monday - let's hope they get it done!
