FIFA 21 FUT Freeze
The FIFA 21 Ultimate Team Freeze event started December 11. As it turns out, this year's Christmas promo in the popular FUT mode has a lot to offer. The idea behind the format is based on the Shapeshifters from previous years. In short, players are moved out of their typical position and thrown somewhere else on the field. Of course, this is complemented by re-arranges stats to accommodate the player's new role on the pitch.

- CB: Casemiro - 90 OVR (Real Madrid)
- LM: Marco Verratti - 88 OVR (Paris Saint-Germain)
