EA SPORTS have revealed that the game’s usually regular Team of the Week (TOTW) promo is returning shortly, following a sustained absence.

Team of the Week is one of them events in-game that players look forward to consistently, with the best players from across the world being selected based on their performances. However, with a lack of fixtures due to the global situation, EA decided to pause it for a few weeks.

That wasn’t all bad, either, as the Team of the Season So Far (TOTSSF) sets were still being revealed on a regular basis, and somewhat filled that void. Even in FUT Champs, rewards were shifted to TOTSSF to reflect the removal of TOTW. And now, we know when it will return.

Some football leagues, like the Bundesliga, have resumed play.

On June 20, EA SPORTS tweeted confirmation of its return using the EA FIFA Direct Communication social media account.

They said: “With many top football leagues still ramping up towards restarting, our current plan is for Team of the Week to return on 24 June,” while also confirming that Weekend League rewards for June 12-14 will be the same as the previous week. So, no change there.

The Team of the Week had previously been run as a ‘Moments’ set of cards, celebrating different moments of each player from years gone by, although it looks like the old way of doing things will finally snap back into action soon enough.

Of course, many will be delighted to hear about the promo coming back, as they will about the return of football as well. Just another step of things getting back to normality, and a welcome one at that.

How to claim FIFA 21 Twitch Prime Gaming reward packs (January 2021)

Twitch Prime Gaming loot for FIFA 21 looks like it’ll be back at the end of January. After a long while of waiting, here’s what you can expect: including the type of pack, when you can claim, and more.

Last year, a number of free packs were made available to members of the game’s community on a month-by-month basis. Alongside their Division Rivals and FUT Champions rewards, these help gather a big squad of players which can be useful for either playing with, or alternatively for completing SBCs.

The more cards, the better. That’s a general rule for Ultimate Team.

A lot of players will have redeemed these in the past, so let’s take a look at what to expect in the future.

FIFA 21 Twitch Prime rewards

EA SPORTS hasn’t given players any proper indication that Prime Gaming rewards will be back. However, dataminers have. FUT Watch uncovered pack art for the Prime Gaming pack in the FIFA 21 files on January 21, meaning their launch shouldn’t be far away.

Once they roll out, you’ll know. The FIFA Twitter account always notifies players when a new promotion starts, and the Prime packs are no exception.

What’s included in the FIFA 21 Prime Gaming pack?

While it’s not set in stone yet, players can expect potentially similar rewards to those doled out for FIFA 20. The FIFA 20 Twitch Prime packs, which were last handed out in August, included:

  • 1x 83+ OVR Player
  • 5x Rare Gold Players

While it’s not the most stunning pack, more players are always a good thing in FIFA. Plus, if you can get it for free with Twitch Prime, you wouldn’t turn it down. Maybe your pack luck might strike with it.

When will FIFA 21 Twitch Prime rewards come out?

Rewards are expected to come out soon in FIFA 21.

Chances are, given the release of the pack art at the end of January, rewards will start rolling out early in February. Based on timings from FIFA 20, this’ll give Twitch Prime users around six or seven packs to redeem before FIFA 22 comes out.

Once we have an official release date and time, we will update this article.
