Non-Transfer Items in FIFA 17

FIFA 17 releases in late September and with this comes a lot of questions about which aspects of your FIFA Ultimate Team transfer over from FIFA 16. The most common questions relate to the transfer of coins and players. We’ll explain logically why EA do not allow these items to be transferred.

Transferable Items in FIFA 17


Unfortunately FIFA 17 carryover items do not include coins. Very frustrating for those that have stockpiled millions towards the end of FIFA 16, but why not? If users could transfer coins from FIFA 16 to FIFA 17 then it would cause massive fluctuations in the market. The FIFA 17 Ultimate Team Transfer Market will be its own economy, where the supply and demand for coins and cards dictate prices. The ability to transfer FIFA 16 coins to FIFA 17 would therefore create an unfair playing field. EA carefully control the market throughout the year to ensure there isn’t prolonged periods unrealistic inflation or deflation. We suggest you take your trading knowledge and really use it to your advantage during FIFA 17 webstart, that’s our plan anyway.

Players, Staff, Club Items and Consumables

Players (including loans), staff, club items and consumables will not be FIFA 17 carryover items. Unfortunately these would also give an unfair advantage and would cause chaos on the transfer market. That being said, you will still be able to create a squad of players from your previous FUT clubs and share them with your friends. This feature is called ‘Generations’. Unfortunately you cannot play FIFA 17 with your old squad in any game mode.

Current Division, Record and Leaderboard

Your hard effort to get to division one, along with your record and leaderboard status will be wiped for FIFA 17. For many of you, that may be very much welcomed, especially with the pretty much confirmed rumours circulating of the FIFA 16 Chemistry glitch. This glitch basically rendered all non day one cards irrelevant as they were not receiving full chemistry. We’re assuming somewhere around 4/5 chem as that’s their default. This results in in-forms, transfers and upgrades not performing as well as their stats suggest and also to that of their lower rated counterparts. This may have lost you quite a few games, damaging that pristine record you once had. We’re in no doubt that this will be fixed for FIFA 17, but definitely shouldn’t have gone unnoticed in the first place.

EA Sports Football Club Catalogue Items

We’re saving our FC credits from now as the items you purchase in the catalogue do not transfer over to FIFA 17. As previously mentioned there will be key items available in the catalogue that will help catapult your FUT 17 journey.
