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.

EA SPORTS
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.

FIFA 21 Black Friday – Record Breakers cards

Ahead of the Black Friday promo, EA teased five Record Breaker cards for the Black Friday promotion. A few clues were given – like flags, clubs, and even dates when the players record was set, leading to a community wide search for the answer.

Though, after FIFA players though they had the answers nailed down, EA responded and revealed the five players. They are:

  • Kylian Mbappe
  • David Silva
  • Jadon Sancho
  • Radamel Falcao
  • Oscar

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 17 live: release time, leaks, predictions

The next FIFA 21 Team of the Week, TOTW 17, is now on its way in Ultimate Team ⁠— here’s everything we know about the next in-form team of 2021, including any EA SPORTS leaks, the promo’s release time, and more.

There’s a number of stars that could slot into the in-form Ultimate Team lineup this week, including Bayern’s Thomas Müller, who had a hand in two goals against Freiburg as man of the match, and Lorenzo Insigne, for a goal and assist.

Ajax’s Klaas-Jan Huntelaar also wound back the clock with a late goal for his ladder-leading Amsterdam side against FC Twente. It would be his first in-form since April, 2019.

Perhaps the biggest game of the week played out at Anfield. There, defending champs Liverpool and archrivals United slugged it out for first, though neither could strike a knockout blow; in part, thanks to TOTW 17 contender Allison Becker.

Here’s everything we know about the mid-week FIFA 21 promo so far, including when the Team of the Week lineup will drop, and Dexerto’s weekly predictions.

Team of the Week 17 start time

On Jan. 20, FIFA publishers EA will release the fifteenth batch of Team of the Week cards for this year. The TOTW 17 promo will begin at 6pm (UK time), as per usual.

That means 6pm BST, 12pm CT, 1pm EST, 3am AEST for those around the world.

These boosted TOTW 17 player upgrades will be announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21. Keep your eyes peeled on our official Twitter account — we always make sure to share the team as soon as it’s live.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 17 leaks

So far, EA SPORTS hasn’t let any early Team of the Week cards slip ⁠— after hilarious moments ahead of both TOTW 7, and more recently 10, when they accidentally shipped 11 upgraded cards early, they’re likely playing it extra safe.

If any leaks drop ahead of the official TOTW 17 reveal, we’ll keep you updated.
