FIFA 21 is now five weeks in, and that means Team of the Week 5 has arrived in Ultimate Team. Here’s everything we know about the mid-week promo, including the new TOTW 5 players, release time, and more.

Last week’s TOTW was highlighted by Rashford, Werner, and Ederson. This week, we’re getting even more must-have strikers and midfielders. The world’s best football players show up this week in TOTW 5 after game-changing performances in real life. 

Here’s everything we know about the mid-week promo so far, including the full squad of players, any previous leaks, and more.

Many of these cards are underwhelming, but there are definitely some gems in here. Luis Alberto and Kimmich will add a defensive midfield presence to any German or Bundesliga team and should go for a good price.

Premier League fans can also rejoice in seeing Zaha, with a 92 pace, as well as Joe Gomez on this list. Make sure to check all these new cards out on the market to see how they are doing over the next week.

Team of the Week 5 start time

On October 28, FIFA publishers EA SPORTS released the fifth batch of Team of the Week cards for this year’s annual release. The promo began at around 6pm (UK time), as per usual. That means 6pm BST, 12pm CT, 1pm EST, 3am AEST for those around the world.

These boosted player upgrades are now announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21, so no more getting a look ahead at the squad hours before it’s made available.
