The FIFA 21 early access period is almost here, which means you’ll soon be able to dive in and start building an Ultimate Team. it also means that Team of the Week #1 will also be available, so here are our predictions. 

With the launch of the FIFA 21 Web App and Early Access period on the horizon, that means EA SPORTS will be releasing their first set of Team of the Week cards. 

As such, It’s been a jam-packed start to the domestic seasons,. Leicester City and Everton sit joint top of the Premier League, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund have both slipped up in Germany – while Real Madrid and Barcelona are also off to winning starts in La Liga.

Despite the early good form, not everyone is going to make it into the first batch of TOTW Cards, but there are a few standout performers – like Jamie Vardy and Luis Suarez – who seem pretty nailed on. So, let’s take a look at our first round of predictions.

FIFA 21 can be accessed early with EA Play.

As noted, Jamie Vardy’s Leicester are flying high after putting Manchester City to the sword – running out 5-2 winners at the Etihad. Vardy himself got a hat-trick, so he’s pretty much guaranteed to feature. 

Suarez, on the other hand, starred in his Atletico Madrid debut – bagging two goals and an assist in 20 minutes – as they finished up as 6-1 winners against Granada. 

Elsewhere, there were eye-catching performers from Napoli’s Hirving Lozano, Espanyol’s Mikel Merino, and Hoffenheim’s Andrej Kramaric. They all feature our first round of predictions that can be found below.

The shift in timing was announced on September 29, using the FIFA Direct Communication account. Not only will TOTW 1 be released at this time, but also every other will follow the same pattern.

Of course, the cards and ratings in this article are solely are predictions. But, every player on the list has had a big-time performance over the first Team of the Week eligible weekend – with the likes of Veretout, Tavernier, and Caligiuri chipping in key goals. 

EA might have different plans for the Team of the Week, but we won’t know who’s going to be involved until September 30 – the day that the Web App launches

EA SPORTS is on the brink of announcing FIFA 21 Rulebreakers Team 2, which goes live on October 30, and some players have been leaked ahead of time. 

Coming into the Halloween season, FUT fans were expecting Ultimate Scream to make a triumphant return for the fourth year in a row. Instead, EA blindsided everyone with an all-new FIFA 21 promo: the “Rulebreakers” event.

The first team was stacked full of swapped stars too. Harry Kane’s monster pace upgrade was the headline, but other boosts ⁠— Dries Mertens, Douglas Costa, and Radja Nainggolan among them ⁠— turned older FUT cards into terrifying FIFA 21 beasts.

The second half of the Halloween promo, Rulebreakers 2, is set to drop later this week  ⁠— here’s everything we know about the second boosted squad so far.

Lukaku wasn’t happy about his FIFA 21 rating on his base card, but it looks like he’s about to get a Rulebreaker.

A few players appear to have been leaked ahead of team for FIFA 21 Rulebreakers Team 2, and it looks like great news for fans of the Premier League, La Liga, and Serie A again.

According to fut.investments on Instagram, who has been bang on now for weeks, the following will feature:

  • Romelu Lukaku
  • Toni Kroos
  • Sergio Aguero

This will be a huge boost for Man City supporters, as Aguero suffered significant pace downgrades for the release of EA’s flagship title. Now, given that Kane was boosted heavily in Team 1, it looks lik the little Argentine is next.

When will “Rulebreakers 2” be released?

Rulebreakers 2 is just over the horizon now ⁠— if the in-game dates EA SPORTS has already loaded into the Ultimate Team backend are correct, the second half of the Halloween promo team should arrive on Friday, October 30 (6pm BST). 

This new team should stick around for a week. That means any special packs, challenges, and promo deals that hit Ultimate Team will last until November 6.
