If you’ve played FIFA for a bit, you’ve probably amassed millions of EA Sports Football Catalogue credits.
They’re in that little widget at the top right hand corner of your screen, the one that includes some numbers hardly anyone bothers with. As you play FIFA, you earn XP and you also earn Football Club Credits (FCC). You spend these credits to unlock items from the catalogue (you have to click in the right stick to get there). Items include boots and balls, all-star kits, and bits and bobs for online seasons and career mode.
The EASFC was initially created for FIFA 13 to reward people who put time into the game. At one point EA put FUT Coin reward boosts in the rewards, but the developer disabled that back in February 2014 because players exploited a glitch that let them earn more coins than they were supposed to. EA eventually pulled Ultimate Team items from the catalogue entirely for FIFA 20. I’ve been playing FIFA for years (your progress carries over from game to game), and I have amassed millions of these credits, all gathering dust there at the top of my screen.
