FIFA 19 UEFA Champions League Items
All UCL cards
As explained here, there are several UEFA Champions League player’s items on FIFA 19 Ultimate Team. Let’s see which ones:
Every UEFA Champions League-eligible player who has been confirmed by their club or made an appearance for their club in this year’s tournament receives a Champions League card with a +1 boost on to their overall rating (OVR) and each of the six main stat categories.
cMOTM items are split into Champions League MOTM cards and Europa League MOTM cards, depending on the competition where the player stood out. These items don’t have any periodicity and are usually assigned for standout performances in Champions League fixtures.
FIFA 19 Squad Building Challenges cards are unique items that players can get completing specific Champions League challenges. They can’t be found in packs. These cards are only available as rewards and for that reason they are untradeable.
TOTT cards assigned to the best players of European Champions League – Team of the Groups Stage (TOTGS) and Team of the Knockout stage (TOTKS). The ratings and attributes of these cards are usually boosted in one or two points, compared to their previous card.
The UEFA Live items are assigned to a very limited selection of players who are playing the Champions League. These cards replace the regular UCL player cards in specific times and boost in rating and stats every time their team progresses to the next stage.
FIFA 19 UCL Live Items
What are the FIFA 19 UCL Live Items?
The UCL Live Items are the most important Champions League cards because they are the only Dynamic items. If you know how OTW cards work, you already have a good idea about these new cards.
First of all, you should know that UEFA Live items are assigned to a very limited selection of players who are playing the Champions League. 21 UEFA Champions League Dynamic Items that will be available in packs for a limited time, while 4 UEFA Europa League Dynamic Player Items will be available through SBCs, throughout the event.
The Champions League Live items are based on the UCL regular cards, the ones that already have a +1 boost. When they are released, they look very similar, since they feature the same rating and stats. However, select players from teams that advance through key stages of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League will receive an upgrade to their OVR. The ratings on this item type update automatically, whether they are in your Club or listed on the Transfer Market. Each item’s dynamic ratings will increase based on the club’s real-world performances throughout the competition. If the team wins or advances at select times during the competition, the player gets an upgrade regardless of their individual performance. A player could receive a maximum of six upgrades throughout the season:
1 Advancing to the Knockout Stage
December 14, 2018
2 Winning in the first leg of Round of 16
February 22, 2019
3 Advancing to the Quarter-Final
March 15, 2019
4 Advancing to the Semi-Final
April 19, 2019
5 Advancing to the Final
May 10, 2019
6 Winning the Final
June 1, 2019
It’s important to clarify that regular ones to watch cards are not affected by UCL Live upgrades. In the same way, when a new TOTW or special card is released, the respective UCL Live item is not upgraded.
