EA Sports are marking the day of FIFA 21's release with a nice FIFA Ultimate Team player pack. Everything about the Ones to Watch pack can be found here.

Ones to Watch cards are among the best real estate you can find in the early stages of FIFA Ultimate Team. They are cheap and have the potential to become a valuable piece of your FUT puzzle. Sandro Tonali was the first individual OTW SBC, but now we move to the big leagues with a bunch of players at once.

October 15 Update

Thomas Partey of Arsenal and Martin Ødegaard of Real Madrid are the first FIFA 21 OTW cards to be upgraded. Both players have made it to TOTW 3, so the overall rating of their OTW cards also increases:

  • CM: Thomas Partey (Arsenal) - 84 OVR >>> 86 OVR
  • CAM: Martin Ødegaard (Real Madrid) - 83 OVR >>> 85 OVR

What Are FIFA 21 Ones to Watch Cards

Every year EA Sports honors the most important transfers of the season with a special card. Only players who have changed clubs in the summer are eligible for a Once to Watch card.

The special feature of the OTW cards is that they are dynamic items. Each time a player makes it into the Team of the Week (or receives another performance-based special card), the OTW card increases accordingly.

No wonder that these cards are traded for ridiculous amounts of cash on the FUT transfer market. It does hold risks though. If the player gets injured the card's value decreases dramatically and even if you get a Ones to Watch card, there's no guarantee that it will pan out.

FIFA 21 Ones To Watch Pack 1

EA Sports will release two OTW teams. The first 11 special cards will be available in packs starting tonight at 19:00 CET. Team 2 will follow exactly one week later.

Team one contains the following cards:

  • ST: Luis Suárez - 88 OVR (Atlético Madrid)
  • ST: Timo Werner - 85 OVR (Chelsea)
  • CAM: Hakim Ziyech - 85 OVR (Chelsea)
  • LB: Alex Telles - 84 OVR (Manchester United)
  • CM: Tomas Partey - 84 OVR (Arsenal)
  • RW: Gareth Bale - 83 OVR (Tottenham)
  • CAM: Martin Ødegaard - 83 OVR (Real Madrid)
  • CAM: Allan - 83 OVR (Everton)
  • RM: Achraf Hakimi - 83 OVR (Inter)
  • ST: Victor Osimhen - 79 OVR (Napoli)
  • CB: Nathan Aké - 79 OVR (Manchester City)

Ones To Watch Player Vote 1

EA Sports have also launched an OTW player vote on Twitter. In the poll you can choose between two top stars who have moved to Inter Miami in the MLS for the new season.

Blaise Matuidi and Gonzalo Higuaín are the two options. You have until this evening at 21:00 CET to cast your vote. The player with the most votes will receive a Ones To Watch card of his own.

Those who pre-ordered the FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition before August 14 should get an Ones To Watch card free of charge.

For the rest of us, there's always EarlyGame and our YouTube channel to fill our day with FIFA stuff.
