Using EA Sports FIFA Ultimate Team API

EA Sports FIFA Ultimate Team API is a public API that provides access to various data related to FIFA 21 Ultimate Team game. The API provides access to Player, Club and League items including stats and attributes for each item. In this blog post, we’ll explore how to use this API using JavaScript.

How to use FIFA Ultimate Team API

To use the FIFA Ultimate Team API, you first need to register with EA Developer Portal and request an API key. Once you have the API key, you can use it to access various endpoints and retrieve data.

API Endpoints

The FIFA Ultimate Team API includes a variety of endpoints to access different data and content types. This includes:

  • /fut/items - Returns a list of player, club and league items.
  • /fut/item/{id} - Returns a single player, club or league item by ID.
  • /fut/club/{id} - Returns the club item of the specified ID.
  • /fut/league/{id} - Returns the league item of the specified ID.

For this tutorial, we will be focusing on /fut/items endpoint.

API Example in JavaScript

To use the API in JavaScript, you will first need to create a request to the appropriate API endpoint. You could use any Javascript library like axios, fetch or jQuery. Here’s an example using axios library:

const axios = require('axios');

const apiKey = 'YOUR_API_KEY';
const url = '';

    .get(url, {
        headers: { 'X-Auth-Token': apiKey },
    .then((response) => {
    .catch((error) => {

In the above code, we imported axios library and replaced YOUR_API_KEY with your actual API key. We then set the url to the FIFA Ultimate Team API endpoint and create a GET request with the API key as a header. Finally, we log the to see the data returned from the endpoint.
