How do FIFA 21 What If upgrades work?

FUT “What If” players are boosted dynamic items that are eligible for an additional one-time +2 OVR upgrade if their team fulfills “What If” Scenarios based on real-life football criteria.

Attackers and midfielders upgrade if the player’s club scores at least six (6) total goals in their next five (5) domestic league matches. Defenders and goalkeepers upgrade if the player’s club keeps at least one (1) clean sheet over their next five (5) domestic league matches.

Unlike Headliners, special boosted cards like Team of the Week, Man of the Match, and other performance-based upgrades will have no impact on FUT 21 “What If” players and their overall stats.

After a “What If” player fulfills their upgrade requirement scenario, the earliest the corresponding player item will be updated is on the following Wednesday.
