To celebrate the run to the MLS Cup Final, EA Sports are featuring a limited-time program in FIFA Mobile where you can unlock up to four (4) Master Elite Players from the teams still vying for the right to lift the Philip F. Anschutz Trophy this December. If that player’s club wins the Final, their item will receive a nice upgrade.

MLS Cup Master Elite Players

The four Master Elite Players to unlock are:

  • Colorado Rapids – LM Shkelzen Gashi
  • Montreal Impact – CB Laurent Ciman
  • Seattle Sounders – CAM Nicolas Lodeiro
  • Toronto FC – LF Sebastian Giovinco

How to Unlock – Two Possible Ratings Upgrades

 At the start of the MLS Conference Finals, you will need the following to unlock any one of the four players:

  • 1 MLS Cup Token
  • 15 Silver MLS Cup Players
  • 12 Gold MLS Cup Players
  • 1 Elite MLS Cup Player

Unlocking a player during the MLS Conference Finals will reward you with an 84-OVR version of the Plan you completed.

However, the two teams that advance from the Conference Finals (Colorado versus Seattle and Montreal versus Toronto) will see their players increase from 84-OVR to 88-OVR. If you’ve already completed the Plans of those two teams, your player will automatically increase from an 84 to an 88. But, if you haven’t completed their Plan(s), the requirements to do so increases.

Teams that Advance to the MLS Cup Final

If you haven’t already completed their Plan, to unlock the 88-OVR Master Elite Players you will need the following:

  • 2 MLS Cup Tokens
  • 20 Silver MLS Cup Players
  • 15 Gold MLS Cup Players
  • 4 Elite MLS Cup Players

Again, completing a Plan under these requirements will unlock an 88-OVR version of the Player.

BUT, there is one more upgrade possibility!

Unlocking the 92-OVR Master Elite Player

Now, the team that wins the 2016 MLS Cup Final will have their player increase once again. This time, that player will become a 92-OVR Elite Item. If you have already unlocked this player, they will automatically see the upgrade. If you haven’t, you will need the following:

  • 4 MLS Cup Tokens
  • 25 Silver MLS Cup Players
  • 18 Gold MLS Cup Players
  • 7 Elite MLS Cup Players

It is very important to pay attention to how you decide to complete these Plans. If you are confident a certain club is going to win the MLS Cup, then you might want to focus on completing their Plan first and riding it out. But if you want to hold out until the end, then be ready to invest a bit to get that 92-OVR Player.

*Please Note: Plans are unrepeatable

MLS Cup Events

As we make our way towards the MLS Cup Final on December 10, there will be a number of Flash and Live Events where you can earn the items to help you complete these plans. These Events will occur on days when these matches take place.

MLS Cup Plans

There will be three Plans to help you unlock the four MLS Elite Master Players:

  • Gold MLS Cup Player – Redeem five (5) Silver MLS Cup Players to earn one (1) Gold MLS Cup Player
  • Elite MLS Cup Player – Redeem five (5) Gold MLS Cup Player to earn one (1) Elite MLS Cup Player
  • MLS Cup Exchange – Redeem one (1) MLS Cup Token to earn one (1) Gold or Better MLS Cup Player

You only have a limited time to complete these Plans and unlock the available players. Again, if you are confident a player and his club will lift the trophy, then please complete their Plan first when it’s the easiest.
