Gamers don't need to wait long to get hteir hands on a copy of Fifa 21 (EA Sports)

The release of Fifa 21 is just days away, meaning Ultimate Team fans can begin wheeling and dealing their way to the squad of their dreams.

The Ultimate Team web app is a vital tool for any self-respecting Ultimate Team player, allowing squad building fanatics to trade players on their smartphone while away from their games console.

As ever, the app is released ahead of the game itself, offering Ultimate Team players the opportunity to get a head start on fellow gamers and traders.

Here’s everything you need to know about the release of the Fifa 21 web app.

When is the Fifa 21 Web App out?

There’s currently no official word on when the web app will be released.

That being said, if EA Sports follows its release calendar of previous years, Fifa fanatics should expect to get their hands on the app at the end of September.

In previous years the app has been released the day before the 10 hour trial for EA Access subscribers. That takes place on 1 October this year, meaning team builders should get their hands on the web app on 30 September. It has been reported that the app will be released at 6pm that evening.

How does the new Web App work?

No official changes have been announced about the new Web App, and it’s unlikely that any real changes will have been made from previous editions.

The app allows Ultimate Team players to delve into the transfer market, tweak tactical styles and customise their club’s look.

Players can also work through the latest squad building challenges, trading unwanted players for unique player cards. On top of that, they can claim rewards for their efforts in the Weekend League and Division Rivals game modes.

How to download

You can sign up to the web app on your regular internet browser here.

The companion app will be available to download from the Apple App Store and the Google Play app store upon the game’s release.

When can I play Fifa 21?

Fifa 21 is currently scheduled to release on Friday 9 October 2020.

It will be released for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, as well as next-gen consoles the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.

Where is the cheapest place to pre-order it?

Fifa 21 is already available to pre-order for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC here.

These pre-orders are through EA directly, though, so expect them to be far from the cheapest price available.

We’ll update this article with cheaper offers as and when we find them.
