FIFA 21 Update 5 adds third kits for Man United, Barcelona & more

EA SPORTS have rolled out a new update for FIFA 21, adding 55 new third kits for teams across the globe. Here, you can see all of them in action. 

One of the big selling points about FIFA each year is the unrivaled authenticity that EA SPORTS has managed to put together over the years. From kits to stadiums, to leagues, and new player faces – or Starheads, as they’re sometimes known – each new FIFA game pretty much has it all. 

Though not everything is there from the very start of the game’s cycle, however, and it takes the FIFA developers a batch of updates to get completely up-to-date – unless they haven’t got the license for teams such as Juventus and Roma. 

With the rollout of Title Update #5, which sees tweaks to the Team Press and Constant Pressure tactics, as well as other changes, EA have also added a whole host of new kits that had been missing.

FIFA 21 new third kits

In total, EA have added an additional 55 third kits to teams around the globe – with most of the Premier League, Serie A, and La Liga receiving their unique kits. 

A few highlights that players have already pointed out include the stunning pink Barcelona kit, Manchester United’s unique Zebra style kit, as well as Celtic’s and Marseille’s striking looks. 

If you want to see them all in-game, FIFA YouTuber ReFIFA has put together a quick video showcasing all of the new kits in action, so make sure to take a look. 

If one of the kits that you’ve wanted for Ultimate Team has finally been added, you can hop into the market and pick it up for a few coins. 

If you’re a Career Mode or Kick Offplayer, you won’t have to change anything outside of downloading the update. The new kits will be available to you once you’ve downloaded it and started up FIFA 21.

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.

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 9 leaks

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.
