New game faces (Starheads) will be revealed in FIFA 21, meaning that players on Ultimate Team, Career, and other modes will look a lot more realistic. 

EA SPORTS have already penned exclusive agreements with several of the world’s top domestic leagues, including the Bundesliga, Premier League, and most recently La Liga as well.

These deals ensure that all of the high-profile footballers in the division, or regular starters for each club, will look as accurate as possible. EA like to call these face scans ‘Starheads’ and there’s going to be a load of new ones in the next title.

FIFA 21 Star Heads update brings new face scans

Kylian Mbappe, the game’s worldwide cover star, has been given a new game face for FIFA 21.

Just like any other season, the bulk of Star Heads to be introduced will come from newly promoted sides. In England, for example, that includes the entire teams of West Brom and Leeds United, as well as the winner of the Playoffs.

In other cases, like Marseille, face scans have been confirmed as part of several social media posts from players.

More will be unveiled closer to the time of release, especially when people get ahold of EA Access and the game beta. That won’t stop us from putting a list together of likely candidates, though.

Below is a full list of club-wide face scans we can expect to be included in FIFA 21, as well as individual players.


  • Marseille
  • Leeds United
  • West Brom
  • Union Berlin
  • Arminia Bielefeld
  • Stuttgart
  • Osasuna
  • Granada
  • Mallorca
  • Tigres
  • PSG
  • Liverpool
  • Chelsea
  • Manchester City
  • Borussia Dortmund
  • Spurs

Spurs face scans

A new home kit video for Spurs was posted on July 30, confirming the likes of Steven Bergwijn will have a face scan for the next title.

In the case of Tigres, it looks like EA have been teasing the introduction of their stadium – which may indicate the Mexican club has become an official partner. In that case, official FIFA 21 Star Heads may be bundled in.


  • Kylian Mbappe
  • Frenkie De Jong
  • Bukayo Saka
  • Allan Saint-Maximin
  • Steven Bergwijn
  • Bruno Fernandes
  • Mason Greenwood
  • Erling Haaland
  • Manuel Akanji
  • Kostas Manolas
  • Alejandro Gomez
  • Joao Felix
  • Romelu Lukaku
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold
  • Jadon Sancho
  • Hakim Ziyech

Typically, face scans are usually given to those who weren’t playing in major league previously, have moved clubs, or haven’t had a refresh in a while.

Not a lot of official details are out there just now, although we’ll be the first to let you know and this page will be updated accordingly should news break. Until next time, follow us on Twitter @UltimateTeamUK for more news, guides, and leaks.

FIFA 21 Standard Edition will be released on October 9 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC platforms.


FIFA 21 Black Friday promo countdown: Start date, SBC & Objectives

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.

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.

Once the official list of SBCs and Objectives go live for this event, we’ll be sure to let you know. Not only that, but more information on the FUT Pack sales will also be added here, too.
