Update, May 15: EA SPORTS have confirmed they have solved the issue that was causing La Liga TOTSSF player picks not to appear in this week’s FUT Champions rewards. Rewards have now been distributed.

“We have completed the distribution of the missing Weekend League rewards for Gold 2 and above players, the FIFA publishers said.

“Appreciate you sticking with us while we resolved this.”

Original story:

FIFA 20 players have been left furious as the latest batch of FUT Champions rewards look like they are bugged, with La Liga player picks not appearing for many who had been grinding away at Weekend League. 

There has been problems in the past with EA SPORTS’ Weekend League rewards and once again it looks like Red Player Picks have been affected.

Players would have been expecting to see not just Turkish Super Lig Team of the Season So Far players included in their rewards, but for higher achievers, also La Liga TOTSSF picks as well. However, many have been left wondering about what happened to the latter.

Those who win a lot of games in FUT Champs are rewarded with Red Player Picks, which should be guaranteed TOTSSF players.

As usual, the rewards were delivered to those who participated in this week’s competition at 9am on Thursday, although some were shocked to see they hadn’t been rewarded correctly for the amount of wins they had picked up.

After receiving them, however, EA’s social media accounts have been flooded by bemused players, wondering why TOTSSF cards for La Liga haven’t been included.

“I have achieved Gold 2 in FUT Champs, however I have no La Liga FUT player in my rewards,” one tweeted, while another said: “I got Gold 2 but I didn’t get a La Liga in my second pick? Is this meant to happen?”

It’s worth noting that others have received their rewards successfully, so it looks like not all have been impacted by the bug.

EA confirmed the problem, too, as seen above, and have doubled down on their efforts by disabling unclaimed rewards that have been affected.

We’ll keep adding fresh information to this article, but for more updates on FUT Champs rewards stick with us on Twitter @UltimateTeamUK. Hopefully, it will be sorted out sooner rather than later.


FIFA 21 Team of the Week 8 live: Mane, Kante, Goretzka, more

The next FIFA 21 Team of the Week, TOTW 8, is now live in Ultimate Team ⁠— here’s the full squad and everything we know about the new upgraded team.

International games are in focus this week, as a number of European squads looked to solidify their spots for Euro 2020. The feel-good story of the weekend was Scotland, who qualified for an international tournament for the first time since making the World Cup in 1998.

In regards to potential in-form cards, there were a number of standout stars; Sadio Mane, Georginio Wijnaldum, Timo Werner, and Riyad Mahrez all shone this weekend.

Not every domestic competition was on break though, either. Shun Nagasawa could well have booked himself a TOTW spot, after scoring a hat-trick against Gamba Osaka in the J1 League early on Saturday evening at Suita City Stadium.

Here’s everything we know about the mid-week promo so far, including the newest Team of the Week lineup in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team and Dexerto’s weekly TOTW predictions.

Team of the Week 8 – full TOTW squad

Overall, this is one of the better TOTW squads released so far in FUT 21. Headlining the team are the likes of 91-rated Sadio Mane, 89 N’Golo Kante, and a trio of 86-rated cards, including Insigne, Goretzka, and Mahrez.

There’s a handful of hero cards as well, although none of them seem too usable except for Alex Teixeira, whose Brazilian nationality makes him a viable choice.

Team of the Week 8 start time

On November 18, FIFA publishers EA SPORTS released the eighth batch of Team of the Week cards for this year. The TOTW 8 promo began 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 8 player upgrades are now announced at the same time as they drop in-game in FIFA 21. Keep your eyes peeled on our official Twitter account — we always make sure to share the team as soon as it’s live.
