FUT Champions is the most competitive game mode in FIFA Ultimate Team. In this guide, we will detail a very useful trick that can be used to gain an advantage in the Weekend League. Check out this FIFA 19 FUT Champions Weekend League loan players tip below…

The FUT Champions Weekend League consists of 30 games that can be played over each weekend. To play this many games in such short space of time is hard enough, but when every game is extremely competitive, this makes it even more difficult.

The FUT Champions Weekend League also requires qualification. This can be done by either achieving a Silver 1 rank or higher in FUT Champs (11-13 wins) or racking up a total of 2,000 Weekend League points through Division Rivals (FUT Rivals).

FIFA 21 TOTY promo countdown LIVE: start time, predictions

The wait is finally over ⁠— Team of the Year is here, with EA SPORTS confirming the long-awaited FIFA 21 promo is set to drop this week. Here’s what we know about the iconic Ultimate Team event, including start date and player picks, so far.

EA has taken a bit of a different road to get to the midway point of FIFA 21 promos this release, bringing in “Headliners” early, and swapping FUTMAS to “Freeze” and the popular Halloween promo Ultimate Scream to “Rulebreakers” instead.

However, all roads lead to Team of the Year eventually.

Now the iconic FIFA promo is here, bringing with it the absolute best cards Ultimate Team has to offer. These blue and gold cards are always the most sought after of the year, and often cause a massive market crash when they arrive.

This year should be no different too. Superstar names are already in the mix, including FIFA darling Kylian Mbappe, unstoppable goalscorer Robert Lewandowski, midfield maestro Kevin De Byrune, and plenty more.

Without further ado, here’s everything we know about TOTY 2021 so far.

Last year's Team of the Year was loaded to the brim with world-class players.
EA SPORTS
Last year’s Team of the Year was absolutely loaded to the brim with world-class players.

 When will Team of the Year 2021 begin?

Team of the Year has now been locked in to officially start this week. EA SPORTS has updated the Ultimate Team loading screen to reflect this countdown, confirming the promo will begin with the first card releases on Friday, January 22.

The iconic FIFA promo should ⁠— as in previous years ⁠— run through releases for strikers, midfielders, and defenders, before adding them all to packs for one final hoorah.

The event should run for just over a week, and end in late January.

There’s also a chance EA unveils the team on Friday, but leaves us salivating over the cards over the weekend. In that case, the promo could run into February.

Either way, according to the countdown on FIFA’s loading title, we’ll get our very first look at the promo at 6pm on Friday (GMT). Keep your eyes peeled on our Twitter accounts, @UltimateTeamUK and @FutWatch, to see the news.

Ronaldo has gone from strength to strength at Juventus — does he get into TOTY 21?

TOTY predictions: who makes the 2021 lineup?

The annual TOTY team is the best of the best; eleven world-class footballers who transcended their peers and teammates across the 2020 calendar year.

The Ultimate Team promo begins with a lengthy list of around 70 nominees. Those contenders are then whittled down with a fan vote. This year, stars like Messi, Ronaldo, De Bruyne, Neymar, Van Dijk, Lewandowski, and Mbappe headlined the choices.

In 2020, two teams reigned supreme: Liverpool and Bayern Munich. The former were crowned English champions for the first time in 30 years, while the German heavyweights defied a much-changed Champions League format to stake control over European football in a near-perfect campaign.

Each club defined a stop-start season, lifting trophies despite challenges.

Hopefully your Guaranteed Bundesliga TOTSSF SBC pack contains Robert Lewandowski.
EA SPORTS
Many think Lewandowski was robbed of a Ballon d’Or this year. His stellar year with Bayern Munich should make him a shoo-in for TOTY.

Expect plenty of picks from those two teams, though there’s a chance EA splashes in stars from Real Madrid, City, and Juventus too.

Here’s the TOTY picks the Dexerto team submitted this time around:

Possible Team of the Year lineup

  • Alisson Becker (Liverpool)
  • Alphonso Davies (Bayern Munich)
  • Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid)
  • Virgil Van Dijk (Liverpool)
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool)
  • Heung-min Son (Tottenham)
  • Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich)
  • Kevin De Bruyne (Man. City)
  • Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich)
  • Cristiano Ronaldo (Juventus)
  • Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
