EA Sports announced these week that there will be some changes to several Plans and Programs in FIFA Mobile, here is their official statement:

“Over the next 2-3 weeks, we will be modifying, adding or removing a few Plans and Programs to FIFA Mobile and wanted to give you the head’s up.

One of the Programs we are expiring/removing is Team of the Year (TOTY). Over the last month, the number of people actively working on or completing these Plans has dropped drastically and we want to free up some space for new content we have planned for this spring. If you are close to completing any of these Player Plans, you will have another week to do so before they disappear.

We have a series of new Player Items being added for several of our Programs including Scouting, Veterans, GameChangers, and Rookies. Additionally, we are also updating the Team Hero Plans to offer new players for all the clubs involved (new Heroes with upgrade stats). These will go live at different times over the next 2-3 weeks, so be one the lookout for these new Player Items.

Lastly, we will be moving the Attack Mode Plans from the Attack Mode Tab. Rather than have a dedicated Tab for Attack Mode, all related Plans will exist in the Players Tab. The announcement on who the April Attack Mode Master Players are will happen on or before March 31.”

The World Qualifiers program is back for FIFA Mobile, with five new players to unlock and upgrade.

Like in the first round of World Qualifiers back in November 2016, there will bw a series of Live Events, Packs, and Plans where you can earn Tokens necessary to complete the new Country Player Plans. Some Packs and Plans will be specific to Round 2 Players but you will still be able to complete Round 1 Plans to earn the necessary Master Key Tokens.

Round 2 Players

Unlike the first round, the five Round 2 Players can not only be unlocked but can also be upgraded by completing Plans. Complete a player’s initial Plan to unlock an 88-OVR Untradeable version. Then, complete their Upgrade Plan to unlock a 94-OVR Tradeable version of that Player.

Each World Qualifier Player adds boosts to others on your squad from the same nation.

Master Key Tokens

If you are wondering what are the Master Key Tokens you can now see what they’re used for:

You will need to collect all 15 Master Key Tokens to unlock our World Qualifier Master Player. You got five (5) Tokens in November during our first round of World Qualifiers (these players are still available to unlock). You unlock a further five (5) Tokens by completing the Round 2 Upgrade Plans (the 94-OVR versions), with the last five (5) Tokens earned when you complete the third round of World Qualifiers during the next round of World Qualifier Matches in June.
