When players — including many of the world’s best — went to sign up for the FIFA 20 Global Series earlier today and started entering their personal information, they noticed something weird. There was already information on the screen. Someone else’s information.
At the point where players registering were asked to confirm their details, they were shown a screen displaying the personal details, including email address and date of birth, of a different player.
My friend got a big pull in the Data Breach pack, Hashtag's own Algerian Arrow, @YaniOurabah.

EA were quickly informed of the error, and took down the registration page while they fixed things.
