Introduction to the FIFA 16 Ultimate Team Carryover Guide


We thought that creating a guide like this wouldn’t be really necessary since most players already know what they’ll be able to carry over to FUT 16. However, we started receiving several help requests concerning this theme. A lot of our followers have started playing FUT this year, so this is completely understandable. Even we ourselves have been in this position six years ago when we first started playing and looking for the same answers. We have been receiving these questions so frequently that we felt the need to look all over the internet and see if there are really that many people in the same situation… and yes there are. The bad thing is that amongst all the answers given by the most experienced players of the community, there are many, many inaccuracies and contradictions.

Whoever is familiar with us knows that we don’t like to leave the slightest questions unanswered. That is why we’ll be exploring everything there is to know about the FIFA 16 Ultimate Team carrying over: what you’ll keep from the previous game, what happens if you switch consoles, what you need to do to switch to FUT 16 and how FIFA points transaction works. No matters if you are a FUT 15 regular gamer or fresh to the game, keep up with us as we clear things up. As always we will swot up your knowledge and bring you right up to date with what is going on!


A FIFA 16 Ultimate Team Carryover Guide



What’s carried over to FIFA 16 Ultimate Team ?


This is the most important question. Will I keep my coins and players from FUT 15 ? What can I bring to FUT 16 ? We’ll be as clear as we possibly can:


These ARE NOT carried over to FUT 16:
– Coins;
– Cards;
– EASFC Catalogue Items;
– Match History;
– Current Division;
– Trophies;
– Xbox Achievements or PSN Trophies.


These ARE carried over to FUT 16:
– XP Level;
– FC Credits;
– One-time changeable club name;
– FIFA Points.



If you didn’t know coins can’t be transferred to FUT 16, then you must be disappointed. We’ve all been there so don’t worry, you eventually get over it. Plus buying cards won’t help since they can’t be transferred as well. Don’t know what to do with the coins you’ve been arduously collecting for a year? We can help you with that (available soon).



If you’ve got Ronaldo in your team and you’re buying FIFA 16, it’s time to say goodbye to him. None of the cards you currently have in your club will be transferred to FUT 16: not the players, staff, consumables or even your club items. Nothing.


EASFC Catalogue items

The EASFC Catalogue is a kind of a store where players can exchange FC Credits for hundreds of items. For Ultimate Team it’s possible to increase the targets and transfer lists, receive coin bonuses, change the club’s name, increase the maximum number of squads and even buy “super” 99 contracts for your players. Since this catalogue varies from FIFA to FIFA, you won’t be able to bring items you purchased on previous games.

Match History

Are you that one who’s in the Leaderboard TOP 100? Congratulations. Time to take a screenshot, otherwise this awesome deed will be easily forgotten, left behind to ashes. Your Wins/Draws/Losses history will be lost when you stop playing FIFA 15. It won’t count towards FIFA 16. And even if you decide to keep playing it, EA will put an end to it in less than 2 years because, well, they’d just rather not keep spending money on servers few people will playing at. In their words, they do this so they’re able to “enhance the user’s experience”. Better just go take a screenshot then, huh ?


Current Division

Reaching division 1 has never been so hard as in FUT 14 and in FUT 15. If you’ve done it, you’re probably constantly struggling not to get relegated to division 2. What if you get relegated to division 10? This is what will happen when you start FIFA 16 Ultimate Team. If you think you’ll just humiliate your opponents, just forget it. Everyone starts at division 10: the good and the bad players.



The list of things you’re going to lose for FUT 16 is just endless, isn’t it ? Just like the 2006-2007 Juventus team, you will lose all your tournament and season titles if you start a new FIFA. Except for the fact that you haven’t done anything wrong.


Xbox 360 Achievements or PSN Trophies

Achieving objectives that each console grants you will not be related to FIFA 16, naturally, because they’re specific for each game. Waiting for a TOTW card from a pack? EA thanks your effort. Or not.



XP leveling is a system that a measures how experienced you are in the FIFA universe. It doesn’t matter the game mode, platform or the game on its own, basically you’re going to maintain on FIFA 16 the XP you have at the time. You can even go back to FIFA 15 and still earn XP. It’s shown on the superior right corner of the screen, placed below your ID. Maintaining your XP will give you some advantage over the beginners because you’ll have access to several EASFC Catalogue items they don’t.


FC Credits

FC Credits (Football Club Credits; FCC) is the coin used on EA Sports Football Club. Works exactly like the XP, being linked to your Origin account and not directly related to the FIFA you’re playing. It’s basically used to purchase EASFC Catalogue items and it’s shown immediately in front of the XP.


One-time changeable club name

One of the things EA Sports allows you to keep on FUT 16 is your club name. When you start it for the first time you’ll be asked if you wish to change it or just leave it the same. If you choose yes, you’ve got the right to keep it. You can only change it later buying the club name changing EASFC Catalogue item. If you choose no, you’ll be creating a new name and the old one will be available for other people to choose.


FIFA Points

FIFA Points are an alternate to coins that are used to buy packs. If you don’t intend to spend all your FIFA Points on FUT 15, you can transfer them to FUT 16. You can even buy some by the end of FUT 15 so you can use in the FUT 16 released date, since it won’t be purchasable at the time. However, this is a one-time transfer, so you’ve got to be careful when you start the game for the first time.

FIFA Points can be shared only between same platforms, so if you buy them on Xbox One for FUT 15 you can’t use them on Playstation 4, but you can on Xbox 360 for FUT 16. However, you can not by them on XBox One for FUT 16 and use them on XBox 360.

Starting FIFA 16 Ultimate Team


After so many disadvantages you might be wondering if it’s worth it or not getting the new FIFA 16. If you’re a fan of the series, it’s safe to say that we recommend it. Besides the renewed experience inside the pitch, you’ll be able to build your team based on what’s going on in the real life football. The transfer market will allow new combinations of players and their ratings will be updated. Before you know you’ll forget what was left behind.

In order to start playing FUT 16 you obviously need to buy FIFA 16. Use the same Origin account you’ve been using so that the system recognizes all your data: FCC, XP, club name and FIFA Points. The older players’ fidelity will be rewarded with early access to the Web App around 3 weeks before the official game release date (1); all that followed by free starter packs.

FIFA 16 Ultimate Team on a new console


New Gen Consoles are getting cheaper and for that reason many players will use FIFA 16 as a reason to upgrade to the new consoles generation. If that’s your case, get to know what you have to do so that everything’s fine. This theme is a little more complicated than it seems, so we’ll try to simplify:


Different Platform, from FUT 15 to FUT 16 or from FUT 16 to FUT 16

    From PS3, PS4, PC, iOS, Android or Windows Phone to XBox 360 or XBox One (FUT 15 -> FUT 16)
    From PS3, PS4, PC, iOS, Android or Windows Phone to XBox 360 or XBox One (FUT 16 -> FUT 16)
    From XBox 360, XBox One, PC, iOS, Android or Windows Phone to PS3 or PS4 (FUT 15 -> FUT 16)
    From XBox 360, XBox One, PC, iOS, Android or Windows Phone to PS3 or PS4 (FUT 16 -> FUT 16)
    From XBox 360, XBox One, PS3, PS4, iOS, Android or Windows Phone to PC (FUT 15 -> FUT 16)
    From XBox 360, XBox One, PS3, PS4, iOS, Android or Windows Phone to PC (FUT 16 -> FUT 16)
    From XBox 360, XBox One, PS3, PS4 or PC to iOS, Android or Windows Phone (FUT 15 -> FUT 16)
    From XBox 360, XBox One, PS3, PS4 or PC to iOS, Android or Windows Phone (FUT 16 -> FUT 16)

    You’ll only keep what’s linked to your Origin account. That is your XP and FCC.


Same Platforms, from FUT 15 to FUT 16

    From PS3 or PS4 to PS3 or PS4 (FUT 15 -> FUT 16)
    From XBox 360 or XBox One to XBox 360 or XBox One (FUT 15 -> FUT 16)
    From PC to PC (FUT 15 -> FUT 16)
    From iOS to iOS (FUT 15 -> FUT 16)
    From Android to Android (FUT 15 -> FUT 16)
    From Windows Phone to Windows Phone (FUT 15 -> FUT 16)

    Switching consoles doesn’t mean any disadvantages since you use the same platform (Playstation or Xbox) and Origin account. We’ve talked about what’s being lost and kept earlier in this article. In other words, you will keep the XP level, FC Credits, name and FIFA Points, and you will lose the coins, cards, EASFC catalogue items, match history, current division, trophies and awards.


Same Platforms, from FUT 16 to FUT 16 (1)

    From PS3 to PS4 (FUT 16 -> FUT 16)
    From PS4 to PS3 (FUT 16 -> FUT 16)
    From XBox 360 to XBox One (FUT 16 -> FUT 16)
    From XBox One to XBox 360 (FUT 16 -> FUT 16)

    This is something has changed in FIFA 16. You no longer can share your stuff between different consoles, even if you are still playing in the same platform.
    This means coins, club items and transfer market items will no longer be shared between Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and between PS3 and PS4. You’ll only keep what’s linked to your Origin account. That is your XP and FCC.


Same Consoles, from FUT 16 to FUT 16 (1)

    From PS3 to PS3 (FUT 16 -> FUT 16)
    From PS4 to PS4 (FUT 16 -> FUT 16)
    From XBox 360 to XBox 360 (FUT 16 -> FUT 16)
    From XBox One to XBox One (FUT 16 -> FUT 16)
    From PC to PC (FUT 16 -> FUT 16)
    From iOS to iOS (FUT 16 -> FUT 16)
    From Android to Android (FUT 16 -> FUT 16)
    From Windows Phone to Windows Phone (FUT 16 -> FUT 16)

    Whoever plays FUT 16 on a console will be able to keep absolutely everything when they switch to another console. Won’t see a difference. Just use the same Origin account and you’ll be able to see the system recognizing your XP, for example. However, you’ll be requested to restart Ultimate Team if you’re not logged in with your PSN ID or Gamertag. Don’t ignore this simple step.

  1. i had a fifa 16 ultimate team on ps4 but i changed to xbox one. I’m wondering if there is a way that i can get all my ultimate team back on the xbox one i.e my team, players money and achievements?

  2. Could you transfer your fut 15 mobile game data to fut 16 Xbox one using your facebook?

  3. Hi, great article. I am assuming the same rules will apply for Fifa17 when released this summer (to be confirmed of course!), that being the case, surely most players looking to move from 16 to 17 on the same platform (in my case 360) will be selling their prized assets (legends, Messi’s etc) over the summer to stock pile points ready for a one time transfer to 17 and to enable them to start buying new players on Fifa17 with the stockpiled points …. or am i missing something?

    1. Hi. Thank you.
      We believe that they will apply the same rules for FIFA 17, like they did in previous years.
      What do you mean by ‘pile points’ ? If you sell your best cards, you will be paid in coins. Not in FIFA Points. Coins can not be transferred to FIFA 17. Only FIFA Points have a one time transfer.

    1. No, you will keep with your XP level and FC credits only.
      As stated, “From PS3, PS4, PC, iOS, Android or Windows Phone to XBox 360 or XBox One (FUT 16 -> FUT 16)
      You’ll only keep what’s linked to your Origin account. That is your XP and FCC.”

  4. if i transfer my ps4 account to xbox one will i get everything i have now on ps4? (e.g. players, coins, fifa points)

  5. Hi Rodrigo, I just got xbox one and I’m wanting to carry over my ultimate team from xbox 360. is this possible? this is just for fifa 16

  6. I have ps3 and got fifa 16. I have 100k and an ibrahimovic I packed yesterday. My parents have allowed me to get a ps4. But will my coins and players transfer or will I have to start again?

  7. Hello Rodrigo,i have 323,000 in my FUT 15 and i want to transfer them to FUT 16.I use the same console(PS4).Please contact me.

  8. Hey, thanks for all the info and replies. I have a large amount of coins on my Fifa 16 account on xbox360 and am thinking of upgrading to xbox1. if I do so will my 360 account and all the coins/players i have on that account carry over to my new xbox1 account? I hope I’ve been clear enough and thanks in advance.

  9. If II knew the players won’t get carried over, I wouldn’t have played so much to build a good team. All for nothing. No more fifa fir me. i

      1. I’ve been playing for a while but it’s not about the article. Ea needs to change that, sooner or later. Then I’ll buy fifa again. They shouldn’t even call it ultimate team.

  10. Hi Rodrigo. With my failure I bought the Fifa points for Fifa 15 not for Fifa 16 (from online EA website). Is it possible to transfer those fifa points to my Fifa 16 without access to Fifa 15? Thank you

  11. Hopefully I keep the fut 16 stuff from PS3 web app when going to ps4 fut 16 cozy I made a few coins lol

  12. Hi,
    Currently I have a PS3 but I am a returning FUT player looking to get Fifa 16 on ps4
    If I have been trading on the fut 16 web app for both PS3 and ps4, will I be able to transfer my coins and players from the Fifa 16 web app trading I did on PS3 to my ps4, once I get Fifa 16 on ps4?

    1. Hi.
      No, you won’t. When you started the FUT 16 Web App for the first time, you were prompted about which console you were playing. If you chose PS3, then you can not transfer your progress to PS4.

  13. If I get Fifa 16 on ps3 for now but upgraded say in January to a ps4 and bought fifa 16 then for ps4 would everything still be there from my ps3 on the ps4 if I used the same account or would I have to start again?

  14. You said that coins and players fut 16 (android) will carry over to fut 17 (android. will this be the case for any other platforms? Also is there a reason as to why they haven’t carried over coins, players etc in recent year?

  15. I checked your information 2 weeks ago on this site and I am sure you stated that my players and coins in FUT will transfer from FIFA 16 PS3 to FIFA 16 PS4 (btw thats why I just got FIFA 16 on ps3 and will buy PS4 later). Now you say they won’t???? Did you changed that info recently???

    1. Hi.
      EA changed it. As soon as they announced it, we published here. If you look to the end of the page there is a note (1) saying that the article was updated. Before the update, there was a note saying that it was subject to confirmation.
      However, you can keep your Web App progress on PS4. You just need to choose PS4 when prompted.

      1. This is what you get when you read info from not genuine EA crappy sites, what is the point of writing something and at the end just adding “oh btw this info might be just bullshit”?

        1. We are not responsible if you did not read the entire article. There was a “(1)” in the text.
          Feel free to follow EA and then you will see how much of they say is not true.

  16. Hey, I just wanted to know the release dates in India. Also, when I started the fut15 account, it read’ update req,’…
    Please solve this…..

  17. Hi Rodrigo,
    Thanks for the info. (and the great effort for the past years on the articles)
    I would just like to clarify a few things.
    I have been playing Fifa 13, 14 and 15 on PC.
    Would be starting Fifa 16 on PS4.
    How do I transfer my account, if it is at all possible?
    And would I be able to use the WebApp and get the free packs for returning players?

    1. Hi. Thank you for your words.
      You can transfer you account but the only things you will carryover with you are the club’s name, XP level, FC C and antiquity. You just need to use the same Origin account.
      Since you are changing your console, you will be able to start Web App only when you play FIFA 16 on your PS4 for the first time ever. There are no free packs for returning players from other platforms.

  18. I accidentally chose the ps3 for my starting platform on web app, now its all on ps3 and i own an xbox one, fuck.. is there anything i can do?

  19. posso acquistare i fifa points per pc su origin ed usufruire fin da adesso sulla web app prima della data ufficiale del 24 settembre??
    grazie mille

  20. So, I think I may have understood, but for clarification, if I play the Fifa 16 web app under PS3 (so I can trade before release date), can I then transfer my coins, cards and consumables etc etc, to Fifa 16 PS4, as this is the console I will be using with the actual disc? I have previously been using PS3 but will be upgrading to PS4 on release date.


    1. Hi.
      No, you can’t. Let me be as clear as possible:
      When you start Web App for the first time, it asks you to which platform you want to be associated. If you choose PS3, you will be able to carry over your FUT 16 Web App progress to your PS3 and you will start FIFA 16 on your PS4 form the scratch. In other hand, if you choose PS4, then you will not be able to use the market features of the FUT 16 Web App until you play the game in the console but you will carry over your progress to that console. In that case, you will not carry over your progress to PS3.

  21. So if I’m understanding correctly using the same origin account my Fifa Points on Fifa 15 (PS3) will transfer over to Fifa 16(PS3) on this one-time only transfer deal on first play of the new game, but they won’t show on the web app until i’ve used the game on PS3

  22. I am currently on ps3 and I am planing to get a ps4 and Fifa 16 on the ps4. On the web app it is asking me which console I want to transfer to but i want to transfer info to ps4 but havent got one yet? If I wanted to get fifa points for the ps4 version should I buy them on my ps3 fifa 15 before I sort out the web app from laptop?

    1. Hi.
      If you buy FP now to your PS3, they will carry over the first time you play FUT 16 in your new PS4. One time transfer.
      You can choose PS4 now but you will not be able to use the Web App until you open the game in your new console.

  23. Hi Rodrigo
    Is there possible to transfer fifa points even if you accessed the WebbApp?

  24. Rodrigo, a quick question. Once I start FUT 16 on the PS4, can I still use FUT15 on the PS3, with all the coins and players I have now? Or does starting a new Ultimate Team mean that the old one is no longer accessible?

    1. Hi Jon. That is an important question, I think.
      FUT 15 and FUT 16 are two different games. It means that you will be able to play FUT 15 as you are playing now, even after starting FUT 16. Nothing changes.
      Just one note: when you start FUT 16 you no longer can access FUT 15 through the Web and Companion Apps.

    1. Maybe I haven’t understood your question yesterday. Can you explain it better, please ?
      Just to be clear: FIFA Points can be transferred from FIFA 15 to FIFA 16, on the same console or crossing platforms but only once.

  25. hi rodrigo

    i played fut 15 on the ps3 but now i have a ps4 will i get access to the web app on the 17th

  26. Ariel Dalton Garbin

    Olá, acabei de ver o novo vídeo da EA Sports falando sobre o Ultimate Team, e gostaria de saber se vai passar os Fifa Points do FIFA 15 para o FIFA 16 na plataforma PC, eu já comprei 9000 Fifa Points no FIFA 15 na esperança de transferir, porém no vídeo eu não vi nenhum comentário ou imagem que informava que vai passar os Fifa Points no PC. Será que não vai ser transferido? Obrigado.
    (vídeo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gz-ZcBokMmE )

  27. So there will be a carryover of FIFA Points. So there Are illegal Websites which sell FIFA Points. I hate them and my question is if it’s possible to Transfer the FIFA Points for them who buy the Points on These Websites???

  28. If I buy fifa 16 on PS3 can I transfer all my ultimate team information(coins,players,etc) to a PS4?

  29. Daniel Fraser

    Fifa point carry over has been confirmed and unfortunately they are not doing it this year as they are aware of all the fifa points hacks

  30. Michael Rovinson

    If I was to buy FIFA points on FIFA 15 now, would they carry over to the FIFA 16 web app upon release?

  31. dean jackson

    This has already probably been mentioned but do you have a certain amount of fifa points that you can transfer or is there no limit as i plan on getting some onto my fifa 15 before fifa 16 is launched so i can transfer them and is it a definate transfer to happen

    1. Hi.
      You can carryover how much FIFA Points you want. But you can only do it once: one time transfer. After you tansfer your FIFA Points from FIFA 15 to FIFA 16, you will not be able to transfer the new FIFA Points you buy in FIFA 15.
      Please, be aware that EA Sports have not confirmed FIFA Points carryover yet.

      1. Thankyou very much for the reply do you think they will announce it before the season ticket runs out on the xbox 360 as when i buy my points through 360 they automatically go onto my xbox one cheers

          1. What is daniel frazer going on about in his message and thankyou for letting us know that the transfer is going to happen

      2. Marius Chirila

        Will the carry over happen on PC also? i still have fifa points on Fifa 15

  32. Hey there do u know when will be Fifa 16 demo available in India and I just wanna know that when will it be rolling out for windows phone in India

        1. There is no demo for iOS but there is something that looks like a demo. It’s a kind of Beta. If you live in Canada or Romania you can’t try the complete game that will be erased in September 22 when the game comes out worlwide. For more details, take a look here please.

  33. the points for fifa 16, will they be readily available for purchase like on sep 22nd? or they will be available after some time? just wondering if thats the case then i should buy points now 🙂

  34. Mario Camacho

    I had been a huge fan of fifa games since 1997, But this year I will have to say Good Bye, You guys don’t appreciate our loyalty and keep treating us like crap. now that I have 130.000.000 Coins on fifa15 and all TOTW in my squat I have to start from “0” ? as much as I love this game I’m gonna have to play something similar , I’m sure that no other game is good as FiFa but it will be much cheaper and still fun. Thank you very much

  35. what about Android platform, does all you said apply too? plus can I open a new fut 16 account via Facebook account and play fut 15 and fut 16 on the same android device?

  36. Thanks mate, I was looking for the information. To bad once I read the article 😉

  37. Will I be able transfer them over when the early access comes out in on the 17th I think

  38. I have the FIFA 16 UT Beta. Will all my players and current progress carry over to the actual game when it comes out?


  39. Hey i was wondering if you have multiple accounts with fifa 15 points on them can you transfer them all onto one fut 16 account when you switch?

    like say i have 3 accounts all with 2000 k fifa points
    1) 2000
    2) 2000

    can i make it so that i end up with 6000 all on 1) or do they have to stay on the associated account?
