EA SPORTS are dishing out Player of the Month cards in FIFA 21, and the Bundesliga will share the spotlight. So, here are all the nominees for the prestigious award.

Over the years, FIFA has been keeping up with real-life footballing events thanks to promos like Team of the Week, Team of the Season, and Ones to Watch.

These specials cards have focused on top performers, and in recent years, Player of the Month cards have also joined the fray from different leagues.

The formula is simple. If a player receives the Player of the Month nod from the fan vote, they are rewarded with a unique card in FIFA that is only accessible via a special SBC – Squad Building Challenge. Here, we’ll be tracking the Bundesliga winners and losers throughout FIFA 21.

FIFA 21 Rulebreakers promo LIVE: player leaks, start time, predictions

EA SPORTS has begun officially unveiling this year’s Halloween promo event for Ultimate Team, and it looks like we’ll actually be getting something a little out of the ordinary in FIFA 21… “Rulebreakers.” Here’s everything we know so far.

The last few years have seen Ultimate Scream rule the last weeks of October. The Halloween themed promo was trotted out in Ultimate Team for the last three years, but the special event’s ‘reign of terror’ seems to be coming to an end.

Instead, a new “Rulebreakers” promo is coming soon. 

EA SPORTS teased the event on Twitter on Oct. 21, with only three letters ⁠— two Rs and an S ⁠— and a fragmented FUT card. Soon after, Dexerto data miner FutWatch confirmed the hidden word would eventually spell out ‘Rulebreakers.’

The following day, Oct. 22, EA SPORTS confirmed the promo’s name. They also revealed, “Rulebreakers leave behind their previous styles of play and transform into different kinds of stars with game-changing stat updates.”

When will the “Rulebreakers” promo begin?

FIFA’s spooky Ultimate Team promo ⁠— or at least, what Dexerto assumes is replacing the Ultimate Scream event this time around ⁠— is still based around Halloween. That means the promo will start this week, on Friday, October 23.

The event should run for just over a week, past the Halloween weekend.

If the timing on the “Rulebreakers” promo is the same as FUT’s spooky Ultimate Scream, we should see it last for just over a week. That means any special packs, challenges, and promo deals that hit Ultimate Team will last until November 2.

We’ll likely get a first-look reveal of the new promo event, and an upgraded team along with it, ahead of that 6 pm Friday release time. Keep your eyes peeled on our Twitter accounts, @UltimateTeamUK, and @FutWatch, to see the news.

Rulebreakers predictions: new FIFA 21 upgrades?

Here’s where it gets a little tricky ⁠— EA SPORTS hasn’t really given us any clues about the potential upgrade team beyond the name. In fact, they haven’t even given us that yet, and we had to rely on Ultimate Team leaks to learn the truth.

It does sound like “Rulebreakers” could be one of two things. The first is those ‘destroyer’ players who pick up cards left and right, get stuck in on the pitch, and just rule the roost with their imposing presence in-game.

Everton striker Richarlison is a good Premier League shout for the “Rulebreakers” team.

The second could be more meta. The title, ‘Rulebreakers,’ could refer to cards featuring players out of position, and breaking the rules. Maybe we’ll see a 90+ pace center back ⁠— lord knows this meta needs one ⁠— or a 99 physical wingback upgrade.

This second suggestion is probably more likely, considering EA’s description of Rulebreakers: players will “leave behind their previous styles of play.”

EA has already confirmed two players for the promo too: Dries Mertens and Harry Kane. They also teased a third, a Brazillian star, but they have not yet confirmed it.

More possible ‘Rulebreaker’ players

  • Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid)
  • Diego Costa (Atlético Madrid)
  • Pepe (Arsenal)
  • Richarlison (Everton)
  • Erik Lamela (Tottenham)
  • David Luiz (Arsenal)
  • Luis Suarez (Atlético Madrid)
  • Harry Maguire (Manchester United)
  • Arturo Vidal (Juventus)
  • Nigel de Jong (Al-Shahania)
  • Hatem Ben Arfa (Bordeaux)
  • Radja Nainggolan (Inter Milan)

So there you have it ⁠— everything we know about FIFA 21’s new Rulebreakers Halloween promo so far. Make sure if you’ve got a few spare FUT coins you keep them in your back pocket; there could be some cracking cards on the way!

We’ll update this article when the promo begins. As always, stick with us on Twitter @UltimateTeamUK for all the latest FIFA news, updates, and content.
