EA SPORTS are set to reveal FIFA 20 Team of the Week (TOTW) 29 this Wednesday, after the ever-present FIFA Ultimate Team promo was put on hiatus for nearly two months due to the ongoing current global situation.

EA was forced to become creative in the absence of world football. First off the bat, FIFA devs rolled out TOTW Moments, a ‘flashback’ promo that celebrated some of the best Team of the Weeks of FIFAs past. Team of the Season So Far, and the popular new Summer Heat promo have also cropped up in recent weeks too.


Now, the regularly-scheduled Team of the Week teams are back on the menu each and every week again. The first two were absolute crackers. The question is will third time continue the TOTW charm? Here’s everything you need to know.

FIFA 20 Team of the Week revealed

This week’s Team of the Week features some unexpected names, such as Tarkowski and Skorupski, but the likes of Aubameyang, Jamie Vardy and Dybala will be popular picks among FIFA fans looking to bolster their squads.


You’ve also got the likes of Sheffield United’s Berge, and Inter Milan’s Alexis Sanchez, who appears in the TOTW for the first time in a while.

When does TOTW 29 go live in FIFA 20?

Football leagues around the world are back in the swing of the 2019/20 season. For some, like the Bundesliga, their staggered campaign is already finished. There’s still plenty of stars to include in this week’s team, however, which is set to go live on July 8, 2020.

As per usual, the start time for the event will be 6pm BST / 12pm CT / 1pm EST / 3am AEST, with cards confirmed three hours earlier. Keep your eyes peeled on our Twitter account — we always make sure to share the team as soon as it’s live.

FIFA 20 Team of the Week 29 predictions

The Bundesliga is over for another year, with Bavarian giants Bayern Munich marching on to their seventh consecutive title, but the rest of the major leagues still have a ways to go until they close the 2019/20 season for good.

This week, Manchester City roared to life against newly-crowned champions Liverpool in a 4–0 shellacking, while Sheffield United rocked Tottenham 3–1 to stay in touch of a European spot as the end of the season looms.

In Italy, Inter Milan ran riot against Brescia in a 6–0 landslide, and Juan Cuadrado played a key role as Juventus defeated Genoa and Torino to climb to a seven-point lead over title rivals Lazio at the top of Serie A.


From the most recent fixtures ⁠— including all the midweek games being played as leagues around the world hustle to finish the 2019/20 season ⁠— let’s take a look at who may be awarded a spot in Team of the Week 28.

Team of the Week 29 potential squad list

  • Aitor Fernández (Levante)
  • Joaquín Fernández Moreno (Valladolid)
  • Sander Berge (Sheffield United)

FIFA 21 TOTW 2 live: Lewandowski, Haaland, Kane, Saint-Maximin, more

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

The full Team of the Week #2 in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team!

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.
