Great news for all Ultimate Team fans!  From 5pm today (UK time) you’ll be able to access the FIFA 12 Ultimate Team Web App, claim your free pack and start building your team!

Exclusive to returning Ultimate Team players (that is, those of you that had created a FIFA 11 Ultimate Team before 16th August 2011) will be:

  • 2 Free Packs
  • 2 Teams of the Week, 1 available on September 20th only.
  • Daily Gifts of Coins, Bid Tokens or Packs
  • Competitions for over 500,000 coins

I’ve got to admit, I ended up with over 200 bid tokens from last years Web App daily gifts and it was a godsend!  I could bid on players at will and never had to buy bid tokens for the whole of FIFA 11!

Make sure you log on every day so you don’t miss out (especially on 20th September for the one off Team of the Week).

I wonder if the TOTW frequency will change in FIFA 12.  I hope so…  The best player I got out of a pack in FIFA 11 was Carlton Cole!

Let me know who you get in your packs today!  And let me know how you feel about losing all of your hard earned FIFA 11 players and coins and having to start all over again in FIFA 12.  Personally my FIFA 11 Ultimate Team seemed to grow stale so I’m looking forward to the challenge of starting a few new Ultimate Teams from scratch in FIFA 12.
