FIFA 21 Companion App
Returning FUT 20 players whose accounts are in good standing can create their FUT 21 Club, start trading and claim returning user packs. Early access to the Web and Companion Transfer Market ends at 12:00 a.m. BST on October 21. After that, you’ll need to log in to FUT 21 on your console or PC at least once to continue using both apps.

Early access on the FIFA 21 companion app is not available to everyone. You need to fulfil these conditions:
– You must have created a FUT Club before August 14, 2020, to get early access to the FUT 21 Web and Companion apps.
– Your FUT 20 account must still exist.
– Your account needs to be in good standing. If you were banned or had other actions taken on your account in FUT 20, you won’t get early access.

Rewards are based on your account’s good standing in the game, along with your player history and engagement. This is why your rewards may be different from your friend’s. Besides that, returning user rewards are tied to your specific console account. So, if you switch platforms or create a new account on the same platform, your rewards won’t carry over.

FIFA 21 Companion App
If you’ve quick sold, also known as discarded, a Player Item in FIFA Ultimate Team and want to get it back, you can use Quick Sell Recovery in the Companion App to get it back.

In order to undo a quick sell, you’ll need to the same Coin amount on your account that you got from the initial quick sell. That means if you got 500 Coins from quick selling a Player, you’ll need to have 500 Coins on your account to be deducted once you get the Player back.

How does it work
1) Log in to the Companion App.
2) Select Club.
3) Select Quick Sell Recovery.
4) Use the calendar icon to find the day you quick sold the Item you want to get back.
5) Select the Player Item you want to recover.
6) Select Recover. The Item you restore will go back to your Unassigned, and we’ll deduct the Coins that you had gotten when you quick sold it initially.

What are the Limitations
– Only Player Items are recoverable. All other Items cannot be recovered once they’re quick sold.
– You have 7 days from the time you quick sell an Item to recover it.
– Quick Sell Recovery is only available in the Web and Companion Apps, so you can only use it for the current version of FIFA.
– If you delete your Club and create a new one, you cannot recover Player Items from your old Club in Quick Sell Recovery.
– By default, you can undo five quick sells per 31 day period. Check the Companion App to see how many quick sells you have left to recover at any given time.
– You cannot undo quick sells for Loan Player Items.
– If you do not use your five recoveries, they do not roll over to the next 31-day period.
To change the app language, you just need to click on the ‘Settings’ icon and then in ‘Select Language’.
