FIFA 20: Bug exposes some player information EA Sports confirms that a bug exposed some personal information of some players signing up for FIFA 20 Global Series.
In a bizarre incident, some players who were trying to sign up for the new FIFA 20 Global Series saw that the registration form was already pre-loaded with information of other people. Some popular live-streamers reportedly had their personal information exposed due to the registration bug.

EA Sports acknowledged the bug and estimated that around 1,600 people had been directly affected by it. Exposed information included e-mail addresses and date of birth. It has since identified the cause of the issue and has patched it up.

"Player privacy and security are of the utmost importance to us, and we deeply apologize that our players encountered this issue today," EA Sports said in a statement.
