EA SPORTS responded to an issue causing FIFA 21 players to receive incorrect versions of Giovanni Reyna’s and Reece James’ Future Stars cards.

FIFA 21’s Future Stars promotion has been a smash hit among players. The Future Stars SBCs are fun and challenging, but the decent rewards and player cards make it worthwhile.

Just recently, players have been able to get their hands on two different versions of Sporting’s Pedro Goncalves and Liverpool’s Curtis Jones. They’ve even had a chance to get a special card in a Future Stars Party Bag.

However, some players have been running into problems with Giovanni Reyna’s and Reece James’ Future Stars Cards. They’ve received incorrect versions of those cards with different positions and stats to the one they chose. Fortunately, EA SPORTS has acknowledged the issue and responded accordingly.

“We are investigating reports of some players having received an incorrect version of FUT Future Stars Player Items Giovanni Reyna & Reece James,” they wrote.

“We’ll provide updates on our EASF Tracker with more information when it becomes available in the coming days.”

But even though they’re working on a solution, FIFA 21 players vented about their dissatisfaction in the comments section. Some even claimed to experience the issue with other Future Stars Cards, including AC Milan’s Diogo Dalot and Borussia Dortmund’s Giovanni Reyna.

FIFA 21 players are disappointed with the issue. They feel like such an issue shouldn’t exist in the first place. However, the good news is that it should be resolved sometime soon.

We’ll have to wait for more information in the next few days.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 22 live: release time, leaks, predictions

The next FIFA 21 Team of the Week, TOTW 22, is now on its way in Ultimate Team ⁠— here’s everything we know about the next in-form team of 2021, including any EA SPORTS leaks, the promo’s release time, and more.

Right off the bat, we’ll admit this Team of the Week lineup has no clear star headliner crowning the squad. That said, it does look like a pretty cracking team, all up.

We don’t think FIFA 21 players will be complaining too much, however ⁠— derby heroes Richarlison and Jadon Sancho lead a potentially forward-slanted squad after ousting their opponents Liverpool and Schalke 04 in local clashes over the weekend. Real Madrid maestro Casemiro may also be splashed in too.

Lautaro Martinez could be a headlining star in TOTW 22 as well after the Inter striker dismantled local title rivals Milan in yet another February grudge match. The 3–0 win, which saw Martinez score twice, put Inter in first place.

Wolverhampton keeper Rui Patrício could also be included.

Here’s everything we know about the mid-week FIFA 21 promo, including when the Team of the Week lineup will drop, and Dexerto’s weekly predictions.

Jadon Sancho missed out last week, but the young Englishman may be included in TOTW 16 instead.

Team of the Week 22 start time

On Feb. 24, FIFA 21 publishers EA will release the twenty-second batch of Team of the Week cards. The TOTW 22 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 22 player upgrades will be announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21. Keep your eyes peeled on our official Twitter account — we always make sure to share the team as soon as it’s live.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 22 leaks

So far, EA SPORTS hasn’t let any early Team of the Week 22 cards slip ⁠— the last time they accidentally pushed out upgrades early was TOTW 7, and more recently 10. The last two months have been fairly sparse in that regard.

If any leaks drop ahead of the official TOTW 22 reveal, we’ll keep you updated.
