FIFA 20 Ultimate Team’s newest promo, FUT Birthday, features three untradeable cards that players can get – and we’ve got the requirements, cheapest SBC solutions, in-game stats, and everything else you need to complete them.

EA SPORTS released FUT Birthday Team 1 on March 27, featuring 18 new cards with upgrades to their weak foot and/or skill moves, as well as several of their stats.

As has usually been the case with most promos, three of the new FUT Birthday cards are available via SBC and in-game Objectives, including a 90-rated Mesut Ozil, 88-rated Karim Bellarabi and 86-rated Lucas Paqueta.

Ozil can be obtained by completing his new SBC, while Bellarabi and Paqueta are both available through Objectives. You can find all of the details about these cards and how to get them below.

This is Mesut Ozil’s third card in the game, following his regular 84-rated gold and 87-rated Scream Team. The most important upgrade is to his weak foot, which has gone from two-star to five-star, making him a lot more usable.

The boosts to his stats are also pretty considerable, as he now boasts mid-80s pace and shooting, while both his passing and dribbling are in the low-90s.

As for Bellarabi, he’s been upgraded to an 88-rated card with a five-star weak foot, two stars above what his regular cards feature.

His shooting, passing, dribbling, and physical stats all have received considerable boosts – and combined with his usual mid-90s pace, the card is actually pretty usable.

Last but not least, there’s Lucas Paqueta, the AC Milan attacking midfielder who’s received a three-star upgrade to his weak foot, which is now at five stars. While the card isn’t exactly end-game level, it’s definitely usable, especially since all it takes to get him is completing a few objectives.

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.
