FIFA 20 Ultimate Team Season 9 ⁠— the last Ultimate Team season of this edition before FIFA 21 takes the reigns in October ⁠— is finally here, bringing with it a handful of upgraded Storyline cards, the final batch of rewards, and some parting gifts.

The franchise’s last FIFA 20 season is set to be a big one in terms of new objectives, as well as the rewards on offer, as we barrel towards the end of the title cycle. Fan attention has just started turning towards FIFA 21, but there’s a little left in 2019/20’s Ultimate Team.

Those still grinding away at all the challenges and squad-building challenges in FUT 20 will be delighted to know there’s another raft of unlockable items on the way. That includes tifos, celebrations, banners, and Storyline players.

Here’s everything we know about the final FIFA 20 season. That includes its start date, which football stars will get the last Storyline cards, and plenty more!

The final FIFA Ulitmate Team is now live, meaning that you can jump in and experience all it has to offers – including the new cards, objectives, and so much more.

It’s worth keeping in mind this season will be shorter than most too. FIFA 21 has locked in an October 6 release, meaning FIFA 20’s last season will likely run until just before then so EA can move everyone over to the new title.

That means Season 9 will run for around six weeks. The Storyline cards and rewards will likely be available for less experience due to this shortened run-time.

Season 9 rewards

This season’s rewards will look similar to the same raft of prizes FIFA 20 players have been awarded for completing challenges in the past eight seasons. Now that the rewards have finally been revealed, let’s take a look at what’s coming for Season 9.

As expected, in the last season for FIFA 20 rewards will mainly be based around banners, tifos, and decent player cards. There are also a few celebrations thrown in too. Below is the full list of Season 9 rewards:

  • Level 1 – 300 XP – 1,000 coin boost for 5 matches

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!
