@GB-FrenZyy @99Sheriffen99Can you try using the Wep App (on a laptop) to create a team? Does it allow you to set up a a team then, or do you still get the same error message?

If using the web app still results in the same error, please be aware that this is being looked into and should be resolved soon.



CM EDIT: This issue is now resolved, thank you all for your posts, and sorry for the inconvenience.

False "profanity" issue with FUT club name.

★★ Novice

'm trying to start up my FUT club in the web companion app, but get a false "profanity issue". I've always had the same name for my club (FC Krankenwagen) and I want to keep it. How can I fix this? Why would the German word for "ambulance" be considered profanity?

FIFA 16 censored

★★★ Novice

I have FIFA 16 early access, I cannot create a fut club because of a censored word in my ultimate team name when there is no use of foul language in the name. It won't even let me create a club using my name and says it's bad language ?

Have you attempted to set the name on the FUT Web App? This can let you get around the issue, but you'll need to have played FUT on FIFA 15.


Otherwise, for assistance with this issue please speak with a Game Adviser through the contact us site here. They will be able to look into your issue and provide you with further assistance.

"Club name contains a censored word"

★★ Newbie
Hi I've brought early access for Fifa 16 and I want to play ultimate team early thats why I paid for it and when I try to get on it, it says when I go to name my club that there is a censored word in my club name or abbreviation but there isn't and I can't access it through the web app either because it won't let me on ut through the web app, I don't know what to do, the whole point of me buying this was to play it early and I can't, is there anything I can do so I can get on and have a few days before its actual release
