EA SPORTS appear to have accidentally leaked some of the next batch of Team of the Week players (TOTW 7) coming to FIFA 21 — by giving them to players in-game.

With the October release of FIFA 21, we’ve seen several iterations of Team of the Week so far, with players in football’s top leagues being graced with an upgraded card in Ultimate Team after having good games.

Last week, for example, in TOTW 6, the likes of Karim Benzema, Hakim Ziyech and Mats Hummels were rewarded for their solid performances in their respective leagues.

While FIFA players typically have to wait for packs to drop each Wednesday to find out who’s made TOTW, it seems EA have accidentally jumped the gun and started putting them in players’ FUT Champs Upgrade SBC.

It looks like these leaks were accurate, as we got all the cards that were on the list. Messi highlights the week as a 94 overall while Bruno Fernandes, Thiago Silva, and Hirving Lozano also get nice upgrades. Here’s more on the official TOTW 7.

FIFA 21 TOTW 7 players leaked

Almost 24 hours ahead of time, players were reporting that they were actually receiving these cards already, with around seven players leaked ahead of time to players who completed their FUT Champs Upgrade SBCs for Red Picks.

FIFA trader SebFUT started sharing screenshots that others had sent him, or he had found online, early in the hours of Wednesday, November 11. These were posted in a Twitter thread, and they weren’t the only one, with other accounts tweeting out their unexpected picks as well.

Here are the players that have been leaked so far, which we’ll keep updating as more details come in:

  • Hirving Lozano (85)
  • Thiago Silva (86)
  • Sergi Roberto (85)
  • Koen Casteels (85)
  • Lukasz Fabianski (84)
  • Marcos Llorente (84)
  • Henrikh Mkhitaryan (83)
  • Lionel Messi (94)

Of course, we can’t fully put stock into these leaks until the TOTW is officially announced later on Wednesday, November 11, but this wouldn’t be the first time EA SPORTS have made this mistake, so it’s definitely looking like this could be legitimate.

Not only that, but FIFA’s Direct Communications page on Twitter also noted that players were getting incorrect items from the SBC — and that they will be replaced with the correct rewards.

We’ll be sure to keep this page updated with any more leaks, but feel free to take a look at our TOTW 7 hub to find out who’s officially made Team of the Week as soon as the news is announced.


FIFA 21 Team of the Week 9 live: release time, TOTW leaks, predictions

The next FIFA 21 Team of the Week, TOTW 9, is now on its way in Ultimate Team ⁠— here’s everything we know about the new upgraded team so far, including any EA SPORTS leaks, the promo’s release time, and more.

Last week’s TOTW, the eighth in FIFA 21, was undoubtedly the best we’ve seen yet, so it’s going to be a tough ask for Team of the Week 9 to go one better.

There’s a good chance it could come close, however, is a huge stack of international stars in line for IF cards, including Cristiano Ronaldo, cover star Erling Haaland, and Romeulu Lukaku. Zlatan Ibrahimovic ⁠— who is planning to sue EA over his rights ⁠— could be included too.

Forwards weren’t the only stars to shine this week either. Tottenham shot-stopper Hugo Lloris and Everton’s Lucas Digne could get in-form cards, while Monaco centerpiece Cesc Fabregas pulled the strings in a 3-2 win over PSG.

Here’s everything we know about the mid-week promo so far, including when the newest Team of the Week lineup will drop in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, possible in-form card leaks, and Dexerto’s weekly TOTW predictions.

Team of the Week 9 start time

On November 25, FIFA publishers EA SPORTS will release the ninth batch of Team of the Week cards for this year. The TOTW 9 promo will begin at 6pm (UK time), as per usual.

That means 6pm BST, 12pm CT, 1pm EST, 3am AEST for those around the world.

These boosted TOTW 9 player upgrades will be announced at the same time as they drop in-game. Keep your eyes peeled on our official Twitter account — we always make sure to share the new FIFA 21 team as soon as it’s live.

So far, EA SPORTS hasn’t let any early Team of the Week 9 cards slip ⁠— after TOTW 7, when they accidentally shipped 11 upgraded cards early, they’re likely playing it extra safe.

If any leaks drop ahead of the official TOTW 9 reveal, we’ll keep you updated.
