A brand new FIFA 20 Ultimate Team leak has hinted at a Guaranteed Flashback squad building challenge (SBC) is coming soon as there is a flashback pack in the game’s files.

Though FIFA 20 is coming to a close and fans are gearing up for FIFA 21, EA SPORTS have not stopped releasing new content. Recently, we’ve seen the return of Team of the Week and even the start of the Summer Heat promo.

These new promos have also meant that players have new squad building challenges to complete in order to get some sweet new cards.

As such, some data miners and leakers have been able to get information early and reveal what EA has up their sleeve when it comes to new FIFA Ultimate Team content.

FIFA stars like Marcos Alonso have received Flashbacks this year.

The newest leak comes from FUTWatch who found that a Guaranteed Flashback player pack was added to the game’s code on June 27. 

It seems unlikely that EA would make this pack available to be purchased from the Ultimate Team pack store, therefore, it seems likely that it would be a part of a squad building challenge rewards.

Of course, recently, EA did a Guaranteed Moments SBC where fans could get their hands on a number of highly sought after Player Moments cards like Sergio Ramos, Lucas Moura, and Hector Bellerin. It appears as if they’ll be doing the same with flashbacks.

Now, the FIFA developers have also been releasing their Party Bag SBCs too, however, they appear to be more focused on promos like Headliners, Shapeshifters, and Ones to Watch. 

Flashback cards wouldn’t seem to fit that pattern, though, EA could change things up and throw everyone a curveball. 

The flashback cards that would be available from the SBC are some of the best cards in the game – including a 96-rated Luka Modric, an 85-rated Theo Walcott, and even the 90 overall David Luiz.

However, there is no word as to when this SBC could be released. Stay tuned to Dexerto and @UltimateTeamUK for the latest FIFA updates as we build towards FIFA 21.

With the launch of FIFA 21 seeing millions of football fans across the globe start competing to try and become the best in FIFA Ultimate Team, the first Ones to Watch promo team is fast approaching. Here’s everything we know about it.

Ones to Watch follows players that have transferred to other teams, promising them upgrades for every time they make a new promo such as Team of the Week, Team of the Tournament and more.

As such, OTW cards are highly desirable, and if you get a decent one at the start of the year, you could see a lot of improvements as the season unravels.

So, here’s everything we know about Ones to Watch in FIFA 21, including release dates and times, the players included and more.

We now know that the Ones to Watch is going to be up and running soon, with its first availability on the weekend of launch. Here are the dates for the cards being released:

  • October 9-16: OTW Team 1
  • October 16-21: OTW Team 2
  • October 21 onwards: OTW Teams 1 and 2

It’s worth noting that you will get a Guaranteed OTW Item if you preordered the game before August 14, and the card you receive will be based on which date you open the pack, in correspondence with the dates above.

Most FIFA promos drop at 6pm BST (11am PDT / 12pm EDT / 5am AEDT), so expect packs to be available from that time starting October 9.
