FIFA 22 issue with players not getting qualification points under investigation

FIFA 22 is the 29th and latest installment in the long-running FIFA franchise of EA (Electronic Art) released on October 01, 2021.

This football simulation game comes with Hypermotion Technology which makes it different from its predecessors. However, this feature is limited to Xbox Series X/S, Google Stadia, and PlayStation 5 gaming console.

Moreover, this video game is also available to play on the Nintendo Switch and Windows. The game went off to a slightly rough start due to bugs and issues that were hampering the gameplay.


Previously, several gamers have reported issues such as EA Play 10-hour trail bug, freezing and lagging issue, and glitch with listing players in Transfer Market.

And now, a new issue has come to light where players are not getting qualification points that are required to qualify for FUT Champions playoffs.

Here are some reports for reference:


@EAHelp Im looking for help because I received all my prizes but my 1000 champions qualification points in Fifa 22 FUT. My account [email protected] Please let me know how to direct my claim. (Source)

I reached rank3 in the first fifa 22 fut weekend league, I’ve got packs and play pick items as rewards however no 1500 qualification points, please can you take a look ? My account is [email protected] @EAHelp (Source)

Players are getting other rewards such as play pick items, but the 1500 qualification points that were supposed to be credited in the account are missing.

Even after reaching rank 3 in FIFA 22 FUT weekend, players are not getting these points, which is obviously annoying, hence the outcry on social media platforms such as Twitter and Reddit.

Well, some players are also not happy with EA’s new FUT Champion qualification criteria, where players need to earn 1500 points in a week in order to qualify for Weekend League.

To earn 1500 points, gamers need to play a maximum number of games per week which makes it hard for them to qualify. As per a player’s report, if you are not qualified for FUT finals or didn’t make a top rank, you will need to win 50 games in rivals to earn those points.

Meanwhile, it is good to see that EA Help has acknowledged this qualification points bug and said that they are currently investigating it. Moreover, affected players can check current status of the issue here.


Judging from the multiple reports (1, 2, 3, 4), this seems a widespread issue that is affecting many FIFA 22 players. Also, as of now, we haven’t come across any temporary workaround that could help you get your qualification points.

All in all, you’ll have to wait for EA support to fix this issue. And we hope that it gets sorted out soon and players are able to play FUT Champions playoffs.
