EA SPORTS have confirmed what promo will be used for the FUT Champs red player picks when the June 12-14 session of Weekend League comes to an end ahead of the return of Team of the Week. 

Ever since it was introduced back in FIFA 17, Weekend League has been the best way for players to prove how good they are against some of the best players around. Only the best of the best manage to go 30-0, sitting atop the leaderboard when the weekend comes to an end.

Though, everyone who gets involved – no matter their win-loss records – gets some rewards. The better you do, the better the rewards are, with more red player picks being the pinnacle. With the rewards in flux as FIFA is currently between promos, EA has moved to confirm where the next rewards will come from. 

Those who win a lot of games in FUT Champs are rewarded with Red Player Picks, which should be guaranteed TOTSSF players.

FUT Champs Weekend League Red Picks for June 18

With the developers confirming that the usual Team of the Week promo will return starting on June 24, the final Weekend League before its return will use the Ultimate Team of the Season So Far as its red player picks. 

“Weekend League rewards this coming weekend (12 June-14 June) will be the same as the ones available for the 5 June-7 June competition,” the FIFA Direct Twitter account posted, though it was met with responses from players who claimed that they wouldn’t be playing in FUT Champs. 

As expected, the Ultimate Team of the Season So Far squad brought together some of the highest-rated cards in FIFA – with Lionel Messi, Kevin De Bruyne, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Virgil Van Dijk being the standout stars. 

Obviously, you’ll need some serious pack luck to get your hands on the cream of the crop, but either way, you should get some nice player picks to fill out your club. 

With Team of The Week and the Summer Heat promo on the way, we can expect to see some nice new cards enter FIFA 20 just as the hype for FIFA 21 really starts to ramp up.

If you manage to grab some of the best cards available from the upcoming Weekend League rewards, be sure to show us what you got on Twitter @UltimateTeamUK.

A new Flashback SBC is available in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team for French Winger Romain Alessandrini, celebrating his goal-studded 2017-2018 seasons for the Los Angeles Galaxy.

SBC’s are a great way to fill out your card collection in FUT, and if you’re in need of something new on the outside, Alessandrini might be just the man you’re looking for.

Now playing for Chinese Super League team Qingdao Huanghai, the Winger notched two of the best seasons in his career while playing for the LA Galaxy in the MLS (13 goals in 2017 & 11 in 2018), which this new Flashback card harkens back to.

Fans who played Ultimate Team in FIFA 18 will remember how good the Frenchman’s cards were – almost everyone had either his first or second In-Form on their bench as a super-sub, and his nationality made it easier to even start him, for those who wanted to.

Alessandrini Stats
Stats for Alessandrini’s Flashback SBC in FIFA 21.

To start off, just check out that 92 Pace on an 85 OVR card. You really couldn’t ask for anything better with 91 Sprint Speed and 93 Acceleration. Shooting, Passing, and Dribbling also all clock in at high to mid-80s as well.

Defending and Physicality are his weak points, but the good news is that there’s only one single challenge you have to knock out in order to wrap up this SBC and grab the fleet-footed Frenchman’s new card for yourself.

Alessandrini Flashback SBC requirements, solutions, cost.

Altogether these tasks should run you around 92,000 to about 105,000 FUT Coins to complete, which isn’t too shabby at all considering the Acceleration and Sprint Speed stats he’s packing. The full requirements are listed below:

Romain Alessandrini

  • Number of players from France: Min 1
  • IF Players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 85
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70
  • Number of players in the Squad: 11

Below are a couple of the cheapest solutions we’ve found to this Flashback SBC, and to make things even easier they don’t require any loyalty to complete.

Now that you know all there is to know about how to knock this SBC out, the only question left is: is it worth it? Looking at the stats alone, especially that 92 Pace, we’d definitely say this SBC is worthwhile if you can afford to complete it.

If you can muster up the coinage prior to the challenge expiring on Friday, December 4, then definitely look into it because this could be a highly-coveted super-sub that you can’t get your hands on later.
