FIFA 15 Ultimate Team has introduced the ability to loan players for the very first time. Being able to recruit some of the world’s stars for a limited number of games is great, but it can be a little confusing at first working out how exactly the system works. We now put together a quick guide explaining the loan system, and listed every loan player available via the Club Catalogue.
What are loan players?
Loan players are players that you can recruit and are available for a limited number of matches. How many games you can use them for is different depending on the quality of each athlete. You can see how many matches a player is available for in the lower right of their card, listed in a blue box.
Loan cards are available exclusively from EA/the game itself, and cannot be purchased from fellow gamers. The first loan card will be made available to you when you create your first Ultimate Team in FIFA 15. You will be presented with a choice of: Zlatan Ibrahimovic (gold) for two matches, Habib Habibou (silver) for 17, Juanfran for 11 and Grodzicki (bronze) for 21 games.
Other loan players are available via EAS FC Club Catalogue, the social hub where you can spend in-game coins earned through XP and game time.
Once a player has been used for his limited number of games, he will disappear from your club. Any training cards, chemistry styles or other boosts applied will also disappear. Contracts cannot be given to a loan player.
How do you get more loan players?
Head into EAS FC by clicking the right stick to jump straight into the hub menu at any time, or go into the club catalogue directly from the main menu. You can only obtain loan players that are unlocked based on your in-game level.
