EA SPORTS have been forced to hit many YouTube videos and Twitter posts with copyright strikes after a flood of apparent FIFA 21 content leaked online. 

Just about everybody interested in the game have been patiently waiting for fresh details to emerge, after EA promised August would be a big month for announcements.

Career Mode, Ultimate Team, Volta, Pro Clubs, and gameplay will all get official reveals, as detailed in a previous post from them.

That being said, it looks like some official snaps and videos from the highly anticipated title have spilled online, giving fans a first-look at the action.

FIFA 21 details leaked

On July 25, the game’s community were delighted to see tons of info revealed ahead of schedule. Yet, none of it came from official sources.

Instead, it appears that a source has unveiled bits and pieces without approval. These leaks have included menu screens, featuring Kylian Mbappe on the left side and a new purple color scheme.

Most leaked gameplay footage has been taken down due to copyright strikes by EA. From what we can gauge, it looked a lot faster than FIFA 20. Some streamers, like Nepenthez, have been left encouraged by what they have seen.

He said: “Maybe I fall for it every year, maybe this year it’s actually different…. but either way, I’m at 100% Hype level for  FIFA 21. The news / leaks I’m seeing today have put me over the edge with it.”

The game, however, is quite a while away from its October 9 release date, but fans can expect a lot to change between now and then. After all, even official demo gameplay differs from the real deal.

There’s no way of telling whether or not these leaks are actually from the devs themselves. Everybody should take it all with a pinch of salt for the time being.

After seeing many leaks have been taken down swiftly by EA, we have reached out to them for comment.

Should they give official comment on the situation, in a statement to Dexerto or publicly, we’ll keep you in the loop @UltimateTeamUK.

The next FIFA 21 Team of the Week, TOTW 10, is now on its way in Ultimate Team ⁠— here’s everything we know about the new upgraded team so far, including the full squad and any leaks.

We’ll be honest right up front; this isn’t the best Team of the Week we’ve ever seen, but there are plenty of hidden gems in the squad nonetheless.

Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez, Barcelona’s Antoine Greizmann, and Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman were all standout players over the weekend – with plenty of solid, if unspectacular cards, also in the running for TOTW 10.

The squad is headlined by Barcelona forward Griezmann, who had a spectacular goal in their weekend matchup against Osasuna. Lautaro Martinez, Iago Aspas, and Brighton keeper Pacheco tie for the second-highest rating of this TOTW, all featuring 86 overall ratings.

Manchester City’s Benjamin Mendy also gets in with his first In-Form of the year, sneaking into the conversation of potentially being a viable left-back option in the Prem.

Team of the Week 10 start time

On November 25, FIFA publishers EA SPORTS released the tenth batch of Team of the Week cards for this year. The TOTW 10 promo began at 6pm (UK time), as per usual. That’s 6pm BST, 12pm CT, 1pm EST, 3am AEST for those around the world.

TOTW player upgrades are now always 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 teams as soon as they’re live.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 10 leaks

Three weeks ago, EA SPORTS accidentally revealed a number of upgraded players early, totally by accident. In TOTW 8 and 9, they were extra careful to avoid that mistake. TOTW 10, however, appears to have had the same fate befall it.

Twelve players across the starting TOTW lineup, and the sub bench, were revealed early in FIFA 21 through the Ultimate Team Weekend League player pick packs. The next Team of the Week isn’t released until Dec. 2, but the players arrived early.

Here are the dozen leaked players who have already been found:
