With FIFA 21 on the horizon, attention has turned to the celebrations you’ll be able to gloat over opposing players with. So, here’s all the new celebrations in EA’s reveals as well as their controls. 

To some FIFA players, celebrating might seem like a small part of the game – or even a time-wasting nuisance. For others, though, there’s nothing than planning a routine with your players once you’ve lashed a ball into the net.

Be it in Ultimate Team, Pro Clubs, or Online Seasons, celebrating gives you a brief moment to get one over on your opposing. 

Though the classic ‘Shush’ won’t be in FIFA 21 and there are a handful of new ways to rub it in. So, here’s what you need to know.

FIFA 21 won’t give you as much time to rub that last goal in your opponent’s face as before.

New FIFA 21 celebrations

EA confirmed that they’d be adding even more new celebrations to FIFA 21, with some signature celebrations from specific players – as well as new ways to celebrate as a team – that hadn’t been seen in the previous trailers.

These include things like taking a Selfie, making goggles with your hands, laying on your side, pulling off the Siphiwe Tshabalala dance from the 2010 World Cup, and Steven Bergwijn’s covering the face motion.

You can see all the new celebrations in the trailer below.

What other celebrations are in FIFA 21?

There’s nothing quite like re-creating your favorite player’s celebration. Be it the Tim Cahill corner flag boxing, the Wayne Rooney knockout, or Ronaldo’s ‘Siuuu’ jump, there are plenty of iconic celebrations in FIFA already.

Each year, though, fans want to see more and more signature celebrations in-game. 

In the gameplay trailers that EA have already shown, we’ve seen Erling Haaland’s sit down pose, Kylian Mbappe’s tears previously – so expect to see them a lot in FIFA 21. You can check out Haaland’s ‘Zen’ celebration below.

FIFA 21 celebrations controls

As for the holdovers, it’s pretty rare that EA takes away any celebrations, so bar the aforementioned ‘Shush’ being removed, we’ll likely the same extensive list as ever.

You can find a list of FIFA 20 celebrations, and their controls, that we expect to see carried over to FIFA 21 below.

With the launch of FIFA 21 seeing millions of football fans across the globe start competing to try and become the best in FIFA Ultimate Team, the first Ones to Watch promo team is fast approaching. Here’s everything we know about it.

Ones to Watch follows players that have transferred to other teams, promising them upgrades for every time they make a new promo such as Team of the Week, Team of the Tournament and more.

As such, OTW cards are highly desirable, and if you get a decent one at the start of the year, you could see a lot of improvements as the season unravels.

So, here’s everything we know about Ones to Watch in FIFA 21, including release dates and times, the players included and more.

FIFA 21 Ones to Watch release date & time

We now know that the Ones to Watch is going to be up and running soon, with its first availability on the weekend of launch. Here are the dates for the cards being released:

  • October 9-16: OTW Team 1
  • October 16-21: OTW Team 2
  • October 21 onwards: OTW Teams 1 and 2

It’s worth noting that you will get a Guaranteed OTW Item if you preordered the game before August 14, and the card you receive will be based on which date you open the pack, in correspondence with the dates above.

Most FIFA promos drop at 6pm BST (11am PDT / 12pm EDT / 5am AEDT), so expect packs to be available from that time starting October 9.
