Ones To Watch

Ones To Watch (OTW) celebrates the transfer window’s biggest moves with dynamic cards that have the potential to upgrade based upon the player’s performance. The players’ OTW cards will upgrade as they earn Team of the Week and Man of the Match awards. Those who pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition will receive a Guaranteed OTW Item. The full campaign for OTW will launch on the 1st of October. For players, it would be interesting to see the change as both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have changed teams this year.

Performance-Based Programs

We often see the ratings of Team of the Week, Man of the Match, or Player of the Month drop behind the ratings of items. This year introduces Featured Team Of The Week Items to celebrate the performance of a select Team of the player each week. TOTW items will be given a larger boost for a better appeal. Eligibility for Featured TOTW Item requires a rating of 80 or below for player’s highest-rated Base or Performance-Based Item. Also, they must not have an active Live Item. Furthermore, there will be a boosted rating for any future Performance-Based Items that the players earn.


Four new players will join the elite ranks of FUT ICONs. At present, the name of three has been revealed: Cafu, Iker Casillas, and Robin van Persie. We’re waiting for the final Icon.
