EA SPORTS have linked up with Amazon to provide players with exclusive content in the past, and this year should be no different. Here, we look at FIFA 21 Twitch Prime Gaming rewards and when they’re coming out. 

Last year, a number of free packs were made available to members of the game’s community on a month-by-month basis. Alongside their Division Rivals and FUT Champions rewards, these help gather a big squad of players which can be useful for either playing with, or alternatively for completing SBCs.

The more cards, the better. That’s a general rule for Ultimate Team.

A lot of players will have redeemed these in the past, so let’s take a look at what to expect in the future.

Some big players can walk out of FUT packs, so anything free is a bonus for players.

Bonus content is expected to drop on the Prime Gaming website for FIFA 21 at some stage in the future, though nothing has been posted on there as of October 2020.

For last year’s iteration, these started to be posted to Twitter by EA SPORTS FIFA, notifying they had rolled out and been made available to redeem.

What do you get?

The latest one to be announced was back in August, but with the new title now release it’s only a matter of time before they will roll out.

Usually, they look something like this – potentially with a loan card as well:

  • 83+ OVR card guaranteed (x1)
  • Rare gold player items (x5)

When are rewards out?

Chances are, these Twitch Prime Gaming rewards will be released between Halloween and Christmas for FIFA 21. This is usually a busy period for EA SPORTS, who release many FUT promos during the winter months to keep the community ticking over.

Once we have an official release date and time, we will update this article.

How to claim FIFA 21 Twitch Prime Gaming rewards

When they do roll out, all you need to do is follow these simple steps:

  1. Connect your Twitch account to an Amazon Prime account, on their website.
  2. Connect an EA SPORTS account to the Twitch account.

  4. Claim the rewards from there.
  5. Load up FIFA 21 and select ‘Store’ on the Ultimate Team screen.

FIFA 21 Ultimate Team Season 2 is just around the corner, and that means there’s a whole stack of new rewards, objectives, and Storyline cards to unlock. This time around, the new FUT season will bring something else too: Icon Swaps.

The first season of FIFA 21 is nearly up, with the expiry coming at the end of the week. That means Ultimate Team Season 2 should be firing up soon after.

Every new FIFA season brings with it Storyline cards, club rewards, untradeable packs, coin boosts, and plenty more. Season 2 will also add a little spice to the mix; Ultimate Team fans are expecting Icon Swaps 1 to launch in mid-December as well.

Here’s everything we know about FIFA 21 Ultimate Team Season 2 so far.

When will FIFA 21 Season 2 begin?

FIFA 21’s second season is set to arrive at the end of this week, following the conclusion of the 2020 title’s launch season. EA SPORTS has confirmed the new slate of rewards and FUT  objectives will begin on Friday, November 20.

The last season began in early October, meaning Season 2 should run for a similar length of time. That means Ultimate Team fans have until around early January to unlock the Storyline Cards, and work their way through all of Icon Swaps 1.

Icon Swaps Set 1

There’s been no official confirmation from EA SPORTS that Icon Swaps 1 will be linked to the second Ultimate Team season, but considering they have confirmed it will be arriving in early December, it stands to reason they should be connected.

Icon Swaps should work the same as they did in FIFA 20; there’ll be a number of untradeable Icon cards available to unlock, for a price ⁠— unique “Icon Swap Token” puzzle cards.

These Icon Swap cards will be earned through SBCs, daily challenges, and long-standing objectives across Season 2. The higher-rated Icons will, of course, require more of the swap cards; some may even take the whole season to unlock.

We’ll make sure to update you when the Icon Swap picks have been confirmed.

Ultimate Team Season 2 Storyline cards

FIFA 21’s second Ultimate Team second will also bring three new Level 30 ‘Storyline’ players, ultra-boosted FUT cards available to unlock through objective experience.

Predicting which players EA SPORTS will actually choose to become Storyline upgrades is a little tricky. There’s sure to be a Premier League player ⁠— it’s the game’s most popular league by a considerable length ⁠— and two more top-flight leagues besides.

Last time around, in Season 1, we had Marcel Sabitzer (Bundesliga) and Juan Bernat (Ligue 1) to pick from. Expect new La Liga and Serie A cards alongside the Prem in Season 2.

Here are our three Season 2 predictions:

  • Stefan de Vrij (Inter Milan)
  • Raúl Jiménez (Wolverhampton Wolves)
  • Saúl Ñíguez (Atlético de Madrid)

So there you have it ⁠— everything we know about FIFA 21 Ultimate Team’s second season, including all the Icon Swap 1 details, ahead of its release later this week.
