EA SPORTS have revealed their brand-new trailer for their Ultimate Team mode, and we’ve get some news about new features, new icons, and much more in FIFA 21. 

As is tradition, in the build-up to the new FIFA release, EA SPORTS dishes out reveals of their upcoming changes – be in terms of gameplay or new features and modes.

We’ve already seen the FIFA 21 gameplay reveal and now it’s time for the most popular mode to get its moment in the spotlight – Ultimate Team. The devs have revealed a brand-new trailer centered around the highs and lows of the fantasy team-building mode. 

Some new icons have been revealed in the build – with Fernando Torres, Ferenc Puskás, and Xavi being three of the standouts. Though, we’ve also got some brand new customization options for stadiums and kits.

FUT 21 reveal trailer

The trailer, went live at 4 pm BST/5 pm CEST/11 am EDT/8 am PDT on Monday, August 10, revealing some of the most highly sought after details. 

As noted, this will mean new ICONs being revealed, but we also got an insight into the FUT Events, Community Events, Co-Op, and changes to both Division Rival and FUT Champs. These new events will be ways to earn rewards as a community while you can get a bigger look at the Co-Op mode here. 

On top of that, we’ve also got the ‘Meaningful Moments’. These will be changes to special cards like Team of the Week that “better reflect the real world footballing moments they are based on.” So, if Lionel Messi bags a hat-trick and two of them are penalties, his penalty-taking stat will soar.

FIFA 21 Ultimate Team removes fitness & training cards

In one of the major changes, FIFA 21 Ultimate Team is doing away with fitness items. That’s right, if a player gets gassed from a game, don’t worry, they will start the next game fit and fresh. Healing Items have been simplified to just Gold common and rare Items.

Training cards have also been given the boot. That means you won’t have to worry about facing a goalkeeper with +10 in attributes any more. EA noted that this change came because its “not something that was being used in game by the vast majority of players.”

As for other modes, EA have already announced that they will be revealing details about different specific modes throughout August, but they haven’t confirmed any other dates for these announcements just yet.

Pro Clubs, VOLTA, and Career Mode are all set for changes in one way or another if leaks are to be believed. So, be sure to check back with Dexerto and @UltimateTeamUK for all the breaking news and updates about FIFA 21.

EA SPORTS have released the second batch of Team of the Week players in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and it looks like there are some exciting cards up for grabs this week.

Following the completion of another busy game week across football’s top-flight leagues, a new set of TOTW players has been released, featuring some huge names and valuable cards.

Dexerto made a number of predictions earlier in the week, included at the bottom of this article, so let’s see how they stacked up with leaks and ultimately, the official team as well.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2

Just as with the first Team of the Week, the second TOTW squad is stacked with top talent, such as the likes of Lewandowski, Courtois, Kane, and Haaland. While not as high-rated as those studs, the likes of Milan’s Hernandez and Newcastle’s Saint-Maximin should also draw a lot of attention as being “meta” players.

  • Harry Kane (89)
  • Thibaut Courtois (90)

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 2 leaked

Ahead of EA SPORTS confirming the full TOTW #2, the full squad was claimed to have been leaked – and the leaker even managed to get his hands on the same image that EA would end up tweeting out.

When did TOTW 2 go live in FIFA 21?

EA SPORTS revealed this next FIFA Team of the Week squad at 6PM (UK time) Wednesday, October 7, 2020. As per usual, they were announced and droped into packs at 6pm BST / 12pm CT / 1pm EST / 3am AEST.

FIFA 20 Team of the Week 32 predictions

What a week! Competitions around the world have come back for the 2020/21 season, soon after the end of last year’s staggering campaign. The back-to-back nature of these seasons, it seems, is going to lead to some exciting games.

The biggest news from the Premier League this week was Aston Villa and Tottenham each dolling out huge defeats for Liverpool and Manchester United respectively. Ollie Watkins scored three and assisted one as he led the Villans to a 7–2 victory over the champions, while Heung Min Son was unplayable against United.

There were a number of other standout performances across the weekend too. Neymar Jr. was at his electric best against Angers, while FIFA 21 cover star Erling Haaland kept up his goalscoring record in a 4–0 win over Freiburg on Saturday.

Here are our TOTW 2 predictions, so let’s see how many we got right this week!
