FIFA 21 Ones to Watch cards are some of the most interesting and valuable cards you can get in Ultimate Team. FIFA 21 OTW cards are upgraded based on their players’ real-life performances. This gives them unlimited potential, as long as the player keeps delivering outstanding performances in real life. In this guide, we’ll talk you through all you need to know about FIFA 21 Ones to Watch cards, including all confirmed players, release dates, and how to get them to bolster your Ultimate Team.
FIFA 21 Ones to Watch
As we noted above, these special Ones to Watch cards see their OVR ratings improve based on their real-life player performance.
One of the best examples we could use from FIFA 20 was Ben Yedder. During an outstanding season for AS Monaco, Ben Yedder received a number of Team of the Week cards in FIFA 20, which provide a higher rating than his base card.
Each time Ben Yedder got a TOTW card, his OTW card would automatically be bumped up to that rating. This meant he went from being an already-effective 83 OVR-rated OTW card to an 87 OVR-rated by the end of the season.
How to Get FIFA 21 OTW Cards
Ones to Watch cards can be earned in one of two ways.
The first is to simply get them in a pack. These can be purchased with FIFA Coins or FIFA points. They can also be earned from completing SBCs or as rewards for your performance in Squad Battles, Division Rivals, or FUT Champions (weekend league).
The second method is to get the card by completing a specific SBC. For example, Sandro Tonali’s OTW SBC is already live and offers a 77-rated card for a relatively cheap 80-rated squad.
When FIFA 21 Ones to Watch Cards Go Live
FIFA 21 OTW cards are technically available now, with the Sandro Tonali OTW SBC going live earlier this week. However, there are two confirmed FIFA 21 OTW Teams releasing in packs in the following weeks:
- OTW Team 1 – October 9 – 16
- OTW Team 1 – October 16-21
- OTW Teams 1 and 2 – October 21
Currently we don’t know what players will make up each of these times, but we do have a list of players below that have already been confirmed to be getting FIFA 21 Ones to Watch cards.
