Match Coins Guide for FIFA 15 Ultimate Team


Every year, EA makes a few changes to the game. The match coins you get every time you play is no exception. Even if you think you already know how it works, you should read our explanation. It will help you to make better decisions and improve the amount of coins you earn.


Match Coins Awarded (MCA) are the coins you get every time you play a Ultimate Team match.

They depend of how much time you played, how well have you played, the match category, the active EAS FC bonus and the competition performance:

MCA = (Skill Rewards x DNF Multiplier) + Completion Award + EAS FC Coin Boost + Competition Reward

As you can see in ‘summary’, to calculate the match coins awarded you need to know the Skill Rewards, the DNF Multiplier, the EAS FC Coins Boost, the Competition Reward and the Completion Award.


Skill Rewards


  • Summary
  • It is the sum of bonuses performance and penalties performance.

  • How is Calculated
  • It is the sum of the bonuses by scored goals, shots on target, successful tackles, corners, clean sheets, pass accuracy, possession and man of the match and the sum of the penalties by against goals, fouls, cards and off sides according to the following table:

FOULS -5 -20
CARDS -10 -80
OFF SIDE -1 -15

(1) There is a 5 coins bonus for shots on target between 2 and 5 (to be confirmed)


DNF Multiplier


  • Summary
  • Coefficient that measures the number of unfinished matches (Did Not Finish), as well as the importance and difficulty of the different game modes and opponents.

  • How is Calculated
  • Initial DNF Multiplier depends of the game mode. It is 0.63 for on line seasons.
    The DNF Multiplier drops 0.25 x A per each incomplete match (A depends of the game mode).
    The DNF Multiplier rises 0.02 x A per each complete match (A depends of the game mode).

  • Maximum Limit

The DNF Multiplier is the most complex part of the Match Coins Awarded calculation. For that reason, we published an article to explain it. Please click here to read it (available soon).

    Hello, I won FUT Season with Computer 1 division with legendary. They announced to me that i have 2 gold pack, but i didnt receive it. What is the problem? and how to get my 2 gold packs?

  2. GiganticTurtle33

    Do you know when new price range updates will take place? I know it is usually on Tuesday but do you think it will happen again tomorrow

  3. I noticed recently in the FUT birthday cup that I was getting much more match coins than the regular champions shield. I was getting around 800 instead of 500 coins. Is there an explanation for this?

    1. Yes. the completion bonus is over 500 coins rather than 325 for special online cup matches. Rodrigo needs to fix this.

      1. Hi Neel.
        I have tested this weekend in several game modes and I got 325 coins for all of them.
        What is your platform ? Anyone can check the completion bonus and say for which game mode it was, please ?

        1. I can further confirm that on the weekly tournaments (add the “Bleu Blanc Rouge” as an example) you’re being given 550 coins, at least in online matches. My platform is PS3 but I have no doubt there are other platforms with this special reward.

    Nice work Rodrigo. I actually think that EA have the number of coins you get from a game right ATM – and I think increasing the number of coins would only result in an increase in the prices of players as more coins get circulated around the market, thus making a coin less valuable. EA should maybe look at making players less rare on the market which would naturally decrease player price due to the influx of more of the same card.

    The only thing that I would add would be a ‘reward system’ that would give you an additional prize for a stellar performance from your team or player, separate from the match award.
