What’s the difference between FIFA 17 Mobile and the FIFA 17 Companion App?
FIFA 17 Mobile allows you to actually play FIFA 17 without the use of a console. In contrast, the FIFA 17 Companion App is where you can access certain aspects of FIFA Ultimate Team, which are otherwise available directly on your console. FIFA 17 Mobile has a completely separate market and promotions to that of the console. Therefore most users play from their console and manage from their phone.

You’ll need to add your friends via the console or PC first.
How much does the FIFA 17 Companion App cost?
The app is free. However, opening FUT packs via the app will cost you FIFA points or coins.
I have multiple FUT Clubs, how do I switch between them?
The companion app will use your last used FIFA persona by default. To switch to another persona:
1. From the Home screen, tap the Settings menu.
2. Tap Persona Selector.
