Castro1021 is one of the most popular content creators in the FIFA 22 Community, with over 3.2 million followers on Twitch and usually hosting streams with over 20,000 live viewers from around the world.

Yesterday however, while live with his fans, Castro received a message on Ultimate Team saying that his account was in danger of a permanent banned, and he was permanently banned from the FUT transfer market for allegedly "participating in coin-distributing and selling."

According to Castro1021 however, the ban was an accident. While live, Castro was buying red FUT CHAMPIONS players off the transfer market, which have been added after rewards day in FUT by accident many times this year already. However, as he bought one, he was banned.

This exploited mistake has been used by many FIFA content creators and players already, though with Castro102's huge following, EA SPORTS noticed and decided to ban him. The allegations were based on him buying the red cards as part of a coin-distributing scheme. EA have been working hard to address users who have been using exploits in the game.

"I just dropped 300,000 FIFA points on Black Friday, and you guys think I'm coin distributing?" Castro1021 shouted on his stream. "Is it because I bought red players? That's your mistake!"

It's unknown if Castro will havehis ban upheld. Some people expect him to get his transfer market access back soon, due to the money he puts into the game for his content. It's certainly odd that EA would ban such a big creator in their game who brings a lot of attention to FUT, as well as money, into the game.
