FIFA 21 Ultimate Team Season 5 will be getting underway soon, so, here’s everything we know about it so far. 

In FIFA 20, EA SPORTS introduced the Seasons system to Ultimate Team. It works just like a battle pass in other games, though, you don’t have to spend any cash to unlock it. It’s free to everyone who plays the game.

As you win matches, complete objectives, and finish Squad Building Challenges, you earn XP to add to your season progress. The further you get, the better your rewards are, as you pick up packs, coin boosts, and even unique cards along the way. 

Seeing as we’re moving away from winter, a new season will soon be descending onto FIFA 21 Ultimate Team – Season 5 – so here’s what we know so far.

FIFA 21 FUT Season 5 start date

In terms of when the season will be getting underway, that’s the easiest thing to know. There is a countdown in-game, after all. 

The day the current countdown is working towards is Friday, March 26 at 6 pm GMT. That’ll be when the game updates and a new season gets underway.

This update also likely comes during a promo too. FUT Birthday and Carniball aren’t too far away, and Birthday is slated to start around that date. So, there could be some surprises in store for the new season.

FUT Season 5 rewards

One part of the season that won’t change all that much is the rewards. You’ll still be able to get packs, coin boosts, and everything like that.

The cosmetics – the Tifos, stadium sounds, and everything else – will likely match the theme of the season. Though, there will likely be some weird and unusual ones as well. Who can ever forget the Cat tifos from a few seasons back.

FUT Season 5 Level 15 & 30 Storyline cards

As for who will be a part of the Level 15 and Level 30 cards, well, who knows. EA picks players from different divisions, so the decision will be up to them at the end of the day.

The cards should be pretty good, though. The Level 30 cards especially have been solid, and up there with some of the best promo cards EA have released.

FIFA 21 TOTW 22 LIVE: New Team of the Week cards revealed

FIFA 21 Team of the Week 22 has been revealed by EA SPORTS, with a number of new TOTW 22 players being added to Ultimate Team. 

Fans of Everton and Borussia Dortmund will have been waiting all week to see if their Derby heroes, Richarlison and Jadon Sancho, lead the charge with upgraded cards. Of course, that expectation comes after ousting their opponents Liverpool and Schalke 04 in local clashes over the weekend. Real Madrid maestro Casemiro also looked like a shoe-in based on many people’s predictions.

Lautaro Martinez is another one fans have claimed should be in TOTW 22, after the Inter striker dismantled local title rivals Milan in yet another February grudge match. The 3–0 win, which saw Martinez score twice, put Inter in first place.

Here’s everything we know about the mid-week FIFA 21 promo, including when the Team of the Week lineup go into packs, and how the confirmed team matches up against Dexerto’s weekly predictions.

Jadon Sancho missed out last week, but the young Englishman may be included in TOTW 16 instead.
Jadon Sancho may have earned his spot in TOTW 22 after demolishing Dortmund’s local rivals Schalke.

On February 24, FIFA 21 publishers EA will release the twenty-second batch of Team of the Week cards. The TOTW 22 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.
