In the brand-new FUT event 'What If' you can expect another squad of dynamic special cards. How do the upgrades work? We'll tell you in the FUT 21 What If tracker.

On February 26,a brand-new promo event made its debut in FIFA 21: FUT 21 What If.Compared to the popular FUT Headliners or Ones to Watch, the player upgrades work a bit differently. You can find all information and upgrades in our What If Tracker.

FUT 21 What if Upgrades – The Requirements

Eleven players can be found in the first team, more will follow via SBC and through tasks. Furthermore, FUT 21 What If Team 2 will be released on March 5, so there will be about 30 dynamic cards in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team in total.

FUT-What-If players are dynamic special objects that can receive a one-time +2 upgrade if their team meets certain criteria in real soccer.

  • Strikers and Midfielders: Upgrade if their respective club scores at least 6 goals in total in the next 5 matches in the domestic league.
  • Defenders and Goalkeepers: Upgrade if their respective club goes 1 match without conceding a goal in the next 5 matches in the domestic league.

The match count starts from the time the cards were first released in FIFA Ultimate Team. The updates are always applied on the following Wednesday with the release of the new TOTW.

However, there are no performance-related upgrades: if a What If player secures the +2, no further adjustments are possible.
