EA Will Stop Offering FIFA Points In Belgium Because It’s Illegal

EA has announced that starting from January 31, the company will stop selling FIFA points in their FIFA console and PC games in order to comply with the country’s gaming regulation in Belgium.

After further discussions with the Belgian authorities, we have decided to stop offering FIFA Points for sale in Belgium. We’re working to make these changes effective in our FIFA console and PC games by January 31, 2019. This means that players in Belgium will not be able to purchase points to obtain FIFA Ultimate Team packs. Players still can access Ultimate Team and play with their existing players. All content in the game can be earned through gameplay, as has always been the case, and players can continue to use coins and the in-game transfer market. Any players in Belgium that have existing FIFA Points in their accounts can continue to use them, but they will not be able to purchase more. We apologize to our players in Belgium for any inconvenience caused by this change.

FIFA Points are the digital currency used on the FUT 19 store to purchase the packs. FIFA players can also earn FIFA Points in-game, and these points can then be used to exchange for packs of players known as FUT packs. When Belgium introduced its loot box ban in 2018, it specify that the practice is considered as an illegal game of chance and thus in breach of the countries gambling laws.
