EA SPORTS have revealed a fresh set of Team of the Week cards for Week 21, featuring some of the hottest in-form players in the Premier League, Bundesliga and more. 

As many regular Ultimate Team players will know by now, the game developers release the new set of cards everu Wednesday, with selected players given improved special cards following their on field success.

Players can get ahold of these by opening FIFA Ultimate Team packs after 6PM GMT (10AM EST, 7AM PST), which is when they will be added to the market for the first time.

Some weeks there will be a clear emphasis on one part of the pitch and this week that’s certainly the case, with some strong firepower up front between Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino (88) – who has been scoring goals for fun away from home this season – Romelu Lukaku (88), Ciro Immobile (90) and more.

Not to mention the exciting additions made in midfield, with Jadon Sancho (87), Angel Di Maria (88), Santi Cazorla (86) and more receiving in-form cards for Week 21.

Elsewhere, Yerry Mina was rewarded once again with an in-form card after his heroic double against Watford which sparked a sensational comeback from Everton – beating the Hornets 3-2 at their own ground, after the home side took an early 2-0 lead.

Robert Snodgrass, who has also been in fine form for West Ham in recent weeks, also gets an upgraded card – bumped up to an 81 rating – after scoring a brace against Brighton on February 1. Ultimate Team players looking to bring him into their starting XIs will be looking to close out games a lot better than the Hammers did in that game, however, after throwing away a 3-1 lead to finish 3-3 in that game.

These cards will only be available in packs for a limited time, though, so if there’s one that has caught your eye this week, you are going to have to act fast.

EA SPORTS have launched a Pre-Black Friday event in FIFA 21, setting things up very nicely for a Black Friday event this Friday. Here’s everything we know so far. 

Following on from Team of the Week 9, which included the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku, FIFA 21 players were wondering what’s next.

Now we know Black Friday in FIFA 21 is set to kick off, which will have a great impact on FUT Packs in the game mode.

A whole host of changes have been made to FIFA, especially when it comes to defending.

When does it start in FIFA 21?

EA have confirmed Black Friday in FIFA 21 starts up on November 27, launching alongside the huge sales advertised across the world from Wal-Mart, Amazon, and many other retailers.

Things will work a little differently in-game, however, and there’s good news for players.

What is Black Friday in FIFA 21?

Here’s the Pre-Black Friday screen in FIFA 21.

This event will consist of hourly pack offers, special Squad Building Challenges (SBCs) and special Daily or Weekly Objectives. These will be mixed up continually throughout the event, and we could even see new promo players added to SBCs – perhaps a little cheaper than usual.

The Pre-Event starts on Thursday, November 26, and that’s where the ball will start to roll on this in-game event. What the deals will look like remain to be seen, as the teaser seen above doesn’t quite give much away.

In recent years, developers have flooded the market with 50k, 100k, and 125k packs. These have rolled out in lightning rounds throughout the day, with other varying pack types between, making it potentially the best time to try your luck. The best of TOTW can also appear in packs, which may lower the pack weight of top players.

Once the official list of SBCs and Objectives go live for this event, we’ll be sure to let you know. Not only that, but more information on the FUT Pack sales will also be added here, too.
