New to FIFA Mobile, EA Sports are giving everyone the opportunity to upgrade Player Items from earlier Programs with the new Retro Stars Program. Use Fame, Throwback, and Talent Tokens to upgrade these older Player Program Items with upgraded stats and a new OVR.

Three New Retro Stars Players Featured Each Week

Every Tuesday evening through the summer (exact go-live time will vary), EA will feature three Player Items from earlier Programs (eg. Football Freeze, Scream Team, Carniball, etc…) and give everyone the opportunity to take the original Player Item and complete a Plan to get an upgrade version of that Item. 

Each Upgrade Plan will need a set number of Fame, Throwback, and Talent Tokens to complete. You can earn these by completing the corresponding Live Events or find them in specially marked packs. Retro Star Live Events will let you replay some of our earlier themed Live Events, such as our “Light the Christmas Tree” Event. As always, make sure to check in-game to see the specific requirements for each Item.

Most player items we feature in Retro Stars are available to get from the market but you can also complete a Plan to receive the original Player Program Item. The three Retro Star Players available each week can only be upgraded during the time we feature them. EA Sports will refresh the Retro Stars Program with three new players every week.

EA Sports are celebrating American Independence with a limited-time 4th of July Program in FIFA Mobile.

The 4th of July Program is simple, use Stripe Tokens to unlock our five 4th of July Players or Star Tokens. Then, use Star Tokens and the five 4th of July Players to unlock a special 97-OVR Player. You can find Stripe Tokens and 4th of July Players in specialty marked Packs.

All 4th of July Players offer a boost to other American’s Speed; they also offer a +1 boost to Positioning for All Players. While the Program Master gives a +7 to Strength to all American Players and a +4 Heading to all other Players. All 4th of July Players are available to buy or sell on the Market.

The 4th of July Program runs until July 10!

The third FIFA Mobile Community Team of the Week is now available in plan, packs, and live event featuring Keita as the spotlight player:

June’s Player of the Month in FIFA Mobile is Luka Modric that you can get by completing his plan.
