EA SPORTS have responded to claims that FUT Champions rewards were not rolled out correctly for Xbox One players on June 24, and have since fixed the problem.

As regular competitors in the Weekend League will know by now, the odd issue can crop up from time to time in regards to the packs they should receive for their performances. That being said, when it does happen, not many are ever pleased by the error.

The same could have been said for this week’s competition as well, as hundreds of Xbox One players claimed their Summer Heat 3 Player Pack was not received. Other problems were also flagged, too.

Those who win a lot of games in FUT Champs are rewarded with Red Player Picks, but some are even claiming they have bugged this week.

A day after the reward packs and red player picks rolled out, EA confirmed that there was an issue and have swiftly resolved it.

Using their official FIFA Direct Communication social media account, they first said: “We’re aware of the issue affecting players who finished Elite in Weekend League on Xbox, who have not received their Summer Heat 3 Player Pack.”

Their next statement was even better news for those affected, confirming that the packs players deserved have been rolled out.

That being said, other FUT Club Owners have revealed the issues might stretch further than just Elite rank on Xbox One.

Replying to that tweet, one said:”Gold 2 didn’t get 90+” and another posted: “The gold 2+ rewards are also glitched.” Others have chimed in, flagging problems with red player picks as well.

The correct rewards have been sorted out for the one particular problem EA confirmed they were investigating. Those impacted by other bugs should continue to monitor EA’s socials to see if further updates arise in regards to player picks.

The next FIFA 21 Team of the Week, TOTW 9, is now on its way in Ultimate Team ⁠— here’s everything we know about the new upgraded team so far, including any EA SPORTS leaks, the promo’s release time, and more.

Last week’s TOTW, the eighth in FIFA 21, was undoubtedly the best we’ve seen yet, so it’s going to be a tough ask for Team of the Week 9 to go one better.

There’s a good chance it could come close, however, is a huge stack of international stars in line for IF cards, including Cristiano Ronaldo, cover star Erling Haaland, and Romeulu Lukaku. Zlatan Ibrahimovic ⁠— who is planning to sue EA over his rights ⁠— could be included too.

Forwards weren’t the only stars to shine this week either. Tottenham shot-stopper Hugo Lloris and Everton’s Lucas Digne could get in-form cards, while Monaco centerpiece Cesc Fabregas pulled the strings in a 3-2 win over PSG.

Here’s everything we know about the mid-week promo so far, including when the newest Team of the Week lineup will drop in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, possible in-form card leaks, and Dexerto’s weekly TOTW predictions.

Team of the Week 9 start time

On November 25, FIFA publishers EA SPORTS will release the ninth batch of Team of the Week cards for this year. The TOTW 9 promo will begin at 6pm (UK time), as per usual.

That means 6pm BST, 12pm CT, 1pm EST, 3am AEST for those around the world.

These boosted TOTW 9 player upgrades will be announced at the same time as they drop in-game. Keep your eyes peeled on our official Twitter account — we always make sure to share the new FIFA 21 team as soon as it’s live.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 9 leaks

So far, EA SPORTS hasn’t let any early Team of the Week 9 cards slip ⁠— after TOTW 7, when they accidentally shipped 11 upgraded cards early, they’re likely playing it extra safe.

If any leaks drop ahead of the official TOTW 9 reveal, we’ll keep you updated.
