EA SPORTS haven’t yet introduced players to the FIFA 21 cover stars, although it appears members of the community have beaten them to the punch and spotted the details early. 

There had been reports coming out of France that suggested Kylian Mbappe of Paris Saint-Germain would be the cover star, following his involvement in the first-look trailer at EA Play, and the leak reported on July 21 appears to suggest that will be the case.

The French goalscoring machine was one of four names revealed, with Liverpool, Borussia Dortmund, and Atletico Madrid all getting representation, if it turns out to be accurate.

The leak, as seen below, states that Mbappe, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joao Felix, and Erling Haaland have been selected as the four players to spearhead EA’s branding for the next title.

It’s not actually a data mine or an inside source close to the developers that have spilt the beans, though. Anybody could have found these names if they were in the right place at the right time.

Here’s an image that’s doing the rounds on Twitter.

The screenshot above was sent to us by reader ChrissyG_x, who stated the source code of a trailer page on YouTube reveals those names. However, the names have since been removed.

FIFA 21 reveal trailer date confirmed

The official EA SPORTS FIFA page on YouTube stated July 23 will be the day they press play on the first FIFA-only promo video.

This news comes just hours after players noticed hashtags on Twitter had been given official FIFA 21 icons, as seen below. These included Ultimate Team related phrases like FUT, as well as “Win As One” which could turn out to be the official slogan for the title.

While we don’t have any official reveal trailer just yet, based on this, it looks like four big players in the world of football are set to feature across the game cases and Ultimate Team loading screens – like other years gone by.

Now, all eyes turn to EA SPORTS to see who they officially announce as their cover stars. These four would be popular picks, no doubt about it.

The FIFA 21 Global Series is starting soon and EA is giving fans a way to earn rewards just by watching. Here’s everything you can grab, how to redeem the prizes, and what to do with them once you do. 

FIFA esports are back with the 2021 Global Series (FGS),  with more prizes and special rewards for watching as in years past.

EA is offering special FGS Player Tokens to anyone who watches at least an hour of any eligible stream on Twitch. Here’s how you can get your Tokens and what they can be used for.

How to earn and redeem FGS Player Tokens

To earn FGS Player Tokens, you need to link your Twitch and EA accounts on ea.com/twitchlinking. Once your accounts are linked, you must watch at least an hour of an eligible FGS event on Twitch.

After you do this, you’ll get an FGS Player Token in FIFA 21. Keep in mind that you can get more than one, but only one token per event.

Once you earn at least two separate tokens, you can redeem them for pack rewards in repeatable Squad Building Challenges (SBCs). This gives you a new, free method of earning packs to get players and items to fill out your squad.

When and where to watch

You can catch the first eligible FGS tournament, the FIFA 21 Challenge, on Thursday, October 29. This tournament will feature pro footballers like Trent Alexander-Arnold and Giovanni Reyna teaming up with FIFA pros in a four-team tournament.

After this, there’s a long break until the Regional Qualifiers begin in December. Once the qualifiers start, eligible tournaments will be more frequent and you will be able to earn Tokens more often. The South America Regional Qualifier is from December 5-6 and the European Regional Qualifier is from December 12-13.

Depending on the event, EA is using two different Twitch channels for the events. Most of the events will take place on Twitch.tv/esportsfifa, but the North American Qualifiers will be on Twitch.tv/ELEAGUETV. Be sure to check out the graphic above to see where to watch.

If you’re looking for an easy way to expand your collection, make sure to tune in to each tournament for at least an hour to get your FGS Player Tokens so you can redeem them for packs.
