Check out the official EA SPORTS FIFA 21 Web App release date.

The FIFA 18 Demo has officially been confirmed for release on Tuesday, September 12th, 2017, at 6pm (UK time). FIFA 18 Webstart will be the preseason for FIFA Ultimate Team and is definitely something you will want to prepare for, find out how below.

FIFA 18 Web App – FUT Webstart for Ultimate Team

FUT Webstart will be available on the FIFA 18 Web App for returning FIFA players. Historically this has happened before early access, enabling you to trade to make FIFA 18 coins, collect web app daily gifts, open returning user FUT packs and build your squads early on the FIFA 18 Web App!

The earliest opportunity you can use FIFA points will be during early EA access and Origin access. Don’t be tempted to use your FUT coins to open packs during webstart as coins are far more valuable during this time than they will ever be!

Web App FIFA 18 Release Date

One of the most common questions year after year is “when is the FUT web app release date?”. While there is nothing yet confirmed for FIFA 18 Ultimate Team, we can make accurate predictions based on EA’s release schedule in previous years.

We are predicting the FIFA 18 Web App to launch online for returning FUT users on Tuesday, September 19th, 2017. This will be roughly 2 days before the launch of EA access and Origin access. We anticipate EA to take the FIFA 17 Web App down for the transition a few days prior to this.

The FIFA 17 Web App will be taken down for transition on Friday, September 15th, 2017. The FIFA 18 Web App Release Date has now officially been confirmed for release at 6pm (UK) on Wednesday, September 20th, 2017!

BE AWARE – Last season there was an initial invite error stopping many users from accessing FUT webstart. If you do successfully get onto the FIFA 18 Web App launch, we strongly advise keeping the window open so that you are continually connected.

In previous years users have exited during times of high traffic and have found it difficult to get back on. Hopefully the EA Servers are at full capacity on the Web App FIFA 18 launch.

FIFA 18 Web App Link

The official EA SPORTS FIFA 18 Web App Link can be found below and will only be available for FIFA 18 Ultimate Team at 6pm UK on Wednesday, September 20th, 2017. Please be aware to only trust web app links from the official EA SPORTS domain names.

How to Access the FIFA 18 Web App Early?

There are a few tips to ensure you can access the FIFA 18 Web App Webstart period once it’s released.

  • You must be a returning FIFA Ultimate Team user and have set a security question.
  • Ensure you play in excess of 10 FIFA 17 Ultimate Team games on the console with the account that is linked to your Web App. This will also help your chances of getting loyalty based packs.
  • Enable login verification (Origin > Account > Security > Login Verification).
  • Confirm Login Verification via Email or Text.

Below are a number of FUT 18 Web App concept images made by us earlier this year.

How to Make FIFA 18 Coins During Early Access Webstart

Important tip for Xbox & PC users – Login to the FIFA 18 Web App before starting EA Access / Origin Access. Your time on EA/Origin Access is limited to 10 hours, whereas your time on the FIFA 18 Web App is unlimited.

Use the FUT 18 Web App to build the best squad you can, so that you can use your 10 hours of early access to play as many matches as possible. After your 10 hours are up, you should have a solid foundation of FIFA 18 coins to begin trading with on the Web App during the period before release.

  • Open all returning user packs / starter packs and sell all players and items that are less likely to increase in value upon the official release. List items on 1 hour listing cycles and keep relisting until they sell.
  • Open every FUT Web App Daily Gift, these offer FREE FIFA 18 coins!
  • Make both short term investments in items that are listed cheap and also long term investments in popular players / consumables that will rise upon the FIFA 18 Release Date.
  • Rare Silver players will often go under the radar during Webstart!
  • For those with a lot of EASFC credits, you can actually purchase kits and balls and sell them (you will be able to begin this during 10 hours early access game play via EA Access).
  • We understand it’s fun, but it’s not advised to open FIFA 18 packs during Early Access Webstart. FUT coins during Webstart are like gold dust, you need to make shrewed investments and build your team as solidly and quickly as possible. A great team during Webstart will set you up for the entirity of FIFA 18. This helps us build our team(s) every single year, by putting in a solid day or 2 of trading it will really make a difference!
  • The Bronze Pack Trading method may work well! This is where you buy 400 coin Bronze packs and sell all the contents for more than 400 coins.
  • Sell items around September 28th for maximum profits.


Can I use the FUT 18 Web App on my Mobile device?

Yes, but only through the FIFA 18 Companion App, which will be released after Webstart and Early Access.

When will the FIFA 18 Companion App be released?

Which platforms are available with the FUT Web App?

All platforms, featuring Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, Playstation 3 and the PC.

The FUT Web App isn’t working, how do I fix it?

This is likely due to the FIFA 18 servers or FUT maintenance. However sometimes it can be your browser / account or an unidentified problem that EA need to fix. You should try clearing your cache within your chosen browser or trying via another browser or device.

If it’s an EA based problem like last year, they usually make people aware (we’ll also post updates on errors).

Why is there a FIFA 18 Web App login verification?

This is a security measure to help ensure other players cannot login to your account. You will be required to verify the code that’s sent to your email address or phone number.

Can I play FIFA 18 matches on the Web App?

No, you will only be able play matches on your console via EA Access or when the full game has been released.

What information do I need for the FIFA 18 Web App login?

You will need your EA account email address, password and answer to your secret question. You may also be required to input a verification code that’s sent to your phone number or email address.
