EA SPORTS are ramping up for the release of FIFA 20’s set of FUT Player Days in-form cards, with a countdown appearing in the Ultimate Team menu. So, we’ve put together some information about the event and even made a few predictions of our own. 

What is FUT Player Days?

For those who haven’t heard of FUT Player Days before, it’s a very simple concept and starts on March 6 at 6pm GMT (1pm EST/10am PT/5am AEDT on March 7).

Unlike other promo collections, such as Shapeshifters or Future Stars, there’s not really a particular theme around the cards who receive upgrades but instead, just the highest rated TOTW players from the game are re-released. This means that if you manage to get an in-form player during the event, the chances are you’re going to pick up one of the best FIFA 20 has seen so far.

FUT Player Days predictions

With all of that being said, and highest rated cards clearly on the agenda for EA SPORTS, with many players clearly wanting to pick up some of the title’s most valuable and powerful cards while the event runs.

We’re tipping Eden Hazard to make it into this year’s FUT Player Days team.

FUT Player Days promo rewards and offers

If last year’s title is anything to go by, there will also be a number of engagement rewards, coin discounts on Ultimate Team packs, rewards for the Companion App and Web App, a ‘buy one get one free’ deal for packs bought with coins, as well as a series of Puzzle SBCs to be announced.

Once these have been completed, players – like any other Squad Builder Challenge – will receive bonus packs and coins as well to spend. This could significantly shake up the market prices for some cards, so keep an eye out for that after FUT Player Days launches.

EA SPORTS have released the second batch of Team of the Week players in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it looks like there are some exciting cards up for grabs this week.

Following the completion of another busy game week across football’s top-flight leagues, a new set of TOTW players has been released, featuring some huge names and valuable cards.

Dexerto made a number of predictions earlier in the week, included at the bottom of this article, so let’s see how they stacked up with leaks and ultimately, the official team as well.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2

Just as with the first Team of the Week, the second TOTW squad is stacked with top talent, such as the likes of Lewandowski, Courtois, Kane, and Haaland. While not as high-rated as those studs, the likes of Milan’s Hernandez and Newcastle’s Saint-Maximin should also draw a lot of attention as being “meta” players.

Here are some of the players you might be interested in:

  • Erling Haaland (86)
  • Robert Lewandowski (92)
  • Harry Kane (89)
  • Thibaut Courtois (90)
  • Ben Chilwell (84)
  • Theo Hernandez (83)
  • Jack Grealish (83)
  • Ollie Watkins (81)
  • Allan Saint-Maximin (83)
  • Renato Sanchez (82)
  • Marcel Halstenberg (84)

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2 leaked

Ahead of EA SPORTS confirming the full TOTW #2, the full squad was claimed to have been leaked – and the leaker even managed to get his hands on the same image that EA would end up tweeting out.

When did TOTW 2 go live in FIFA 21?

EA SPORTS revealed this next FIFA Team of the Week squad at 6PM (UK time) Wednesday, October 7, 2020. As per usual, they were announced and droped into packs at 6pm BST / 12pm CT / 1pm EST / 3am AEST.

These boosted player upgrades are now being announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21, unlike other years where we knew about them three hours prior.

FIFA 20 Team of the Week 32 predictions

What a week! Competitions around the world have come back for the 2020/21 season, soon after the end of last year’s staggering campaign. The back-to-back nature of these seasons, it seems, is going to lead to some exciting games.

The biggest news from the Premier League this week was Aston Villa and Tottenham each dolling out huge defeats for Liverpool and Manchester United respectively. Ollie Watkins scored three and assisted one as he led the Villans to a 7–2 victory over the champions, while Heung Min Son was unplayable against United.

There were a number of other standout performances across the weekend too. Neymar Jr. was at his electric best against Angers, while FIFA 21 cover star Erling Haaland kept up his goalscoring record in a 4–0 win over Freiburg on Saturday.

Here are our TOTW 2 predictions, so let’s see how many we got right this week!
