FIFA 21 season 5 ultimate team rewardsEA SPORTS

FIFA 21 Season 5 of Ultimate Team starts up in late March, and a number of the game’s unlockable rewards have been revealed already. Here, we run through what to expect, the start date and time, as well as Storyline cards. 

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 has now descended onto FIFA 21 Ultimate Team – Season 5 – so here’s everything we know. 

FIFA 20 introduced Seasons to Ultimate Team and it’s been a game-changer.

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 6pm GMT. That’ll be when the game updates and a new season gets underway.

This update will fall on the same day as FUT Birthday, which means we may get some thematic rewards for that roll out on the same day. Read here for our predictions before things got going.

What to expect: 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, which includes 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, it was a mystery right up until they got revealed on March 26 with the start of Season 5.

EA picked a number of players from different divisions, and at first glance the various options seem pretty decent. The Level 30 picks seem especially solid, and could end up being there with some of the best promo cards EA have released so far. 

The Level 15 and 30 Storyline cards for Season 5 can be found below, and it’s important to note that Season rewards will be untradeable.
