Due to start today, EA have announced that the FIFA 21 Weekend League has been delayed due to unforeseen circumstances.
Despite the continual debate on the pay-to-win aspect of FIFA Ultimate Team, the Weekend League remains a popular instalment on the title and often something players work towards regularly.

In an effort to compensate the inconvenience, EA Sports are also offering a refund on everyone who redeemed 2000 FIFA Points towards their entry to this week’s Weekend League.
It’s a nice gesture, which also means that the next Weekend League is theoretically free to enter if you entered this one? Here’s the full statement on the delay below, which was made via Twitter originally…
