EA Announce FIFA 11 Transfer Update Release Date

With the transfer window having been closed almost a week now, a lot of FIFA 11 fans including myself, are still waiting patiently for the update from the game’s developers EA. We know from past experiences it normally comes within the few weeks of February.

EA have finally announced that the update will be available to download free as from February 23rd. The DLC package will include all the latest developments from the recent winter transfer market.

To mark the occasion EA have released a video featuring the most significant transfer this year, Spanish World Cup winner Fernando Torres from Liverpool to Chelsea. The striker moved there following an English club record bid of £50 million. The video can be viewed below.

Are you waiting for this update? What are your thoughts on the Torres transfer?

I've already done all the transfers. I did all of them two days after the transfer market closed. I've also edited A LOT of overalls/boots, etc. because of how unrealistic they are. I want to do this update but I know full well that it's going to ruin everything and make my efforts worthless. I bet teams like Blackpool, QPR, Norwich, Millwall, Brighton, Bournemouth and Rochdale will remain really underrated while teams like Chelsea, Liverpool, Bristol City, Southampton, Plymouth and Sheffield Wednesday remain overrated. Stupid bias FIFA, they reckon Danny Ings is 40 overall and Harry Arter is 51! Ha!

They are taking a bit long but there have been a lot of moves during this transfer window. They should certainly ban people from qutting the game whislt losing, really gets me angry at times.

This is great I only play with Besiktas and Chelsea. The thing I hate is everyone should play with there faveriote team online! Im a big Besiktas fan aka Carsi fan so 90% of time I play with Besiktas. I just hate that i have to play Barca, Madrid almost each time. You cant all be fanatics of these teams.

They should have worked on this pack as the transfers were happening. People are getting bored of waiting,like my self. COD it is …for now bitches!!

Marc Gerow

I do hate that it takes so long to do this but if you attempt to transfer the players yourself in large quantities the manager mode will actually freeze. And you also get players with a huge negative number for overall stats. Its whatever EA. Just get it done . And team play should give you the ability to rank players so team players can have a good game.

I think they should once again add the academy onto the game because it is part of the club and on this version it is no longer available. As well as new features like make the soccer ball catch fire when kicked hard lol!! Or codes for retro players.

The thing that is really gonna suck is that I'm in my 7th season for Career Mode, and with the updates players potential, overalls, etc. are gonna change. The killer is do you really want to restart Career Mode knowing that 1.) player growth really doesn't kick in until you become a 5 star manager 2.) young players really don't grow until the ages of 22-25 3.) both of those scenarios takes at least 3 seasons 4.) No champions league the first season 5.) You have put in SOOOO much time and 6.) Its not a 100% chance you can… Read more »

I wish they had feature to change Kits and Kit sponsors after some time. Gets boring to play with the same kit season after season. The manager should be able to change the kit.
