The first items players will unlock when the login to the game is Virtual Currency, MyTEAM Points and Tokens. Keep in mind theses currencies will appear in your account within 24 hours after the first time you login to the game. This means either starting up MyCAREER or MyTEAM.

The 10% XP Boost on MyTEAM Season Progression from the Championship Edition of the game applies automatically. Once you start playing MyTEAM you will gain additional XP received in the game mode.
