Q: When Headliners event was released for the first time? A: Headliners were released for the first time ever in FIFA 19.
Q: Who qualifies to be a Headliner? A: Headliners are a curated selection of players who are on an exceptional run of form through the season so far. In addition, to qualify for selection as a Headliner, the player must have had at least one performance-based in-form this season and must not have an existing dynamic item, TOTY item or a base item rated 90 or above in FUT 20.
Q: How the Headliner rating is determined? A: At the launch of the event, each FUT 20 Headliners player item is released at one in-form upgrade higher than their latest qualifying performance based In-Form (TOTW, MOTM, Hero, Record Breaker or Team of the Group Stage item) or their base item.
Q: Are Headliners dynamic items? A: Headliners are dynamic items that get automatically upgraded if the player earns a qualified in-form during the remainder of the current season.
Q: How are Headliners dynamic items upgraded? A: The Headliner upgrade will always stay one in-form ahead of the most recent qualifying performance-based in-form. In addition, FUT 20 Headliners will also receive an additional one-time permanent upgrade if their club achieves four back to back wins during the remainder of the domestic league season. If this occurs, the Headliners item will remain two In-Forms ahead of their last performance based In-Form throughout FUT 20, making Headliners one of the most powerful and dynamic player items ever!
Q: What is a performance based In-Form? A: A performance based In-Form is an item awarded from real world performances. Performance Based in-forms include: TOTW (until the end of the 2019-20 season), MOTM, Hero, Record Breaker and Team Of The Tournament selections. Headliner items will NOT be upgraded based on POTM, Award Winner, SBC, or other in-game event selection.
Q: When do Headliner Items get updated? A: A Headliner item will be upgraded when they earn a qualifying performance-based in-form: TOTW (until the end of the 2019-20 season), MOTM, Hero, Record Breaker and Team Of The Tournament selection. In addition, FUT 20 Headliners will also receive an additional one-time permanent upgrade if their club achieves four back to back wins during the remainder of the domestic league season.
Q: Which games qualify for a domestic league club wins upgrade? A: Only domestic league fixtures count towards a players’ clubs winning streak. Domestic Cup, UEFA competitions, and international fixtures do not count towards a club win streak.

Q: How long will a Headliner player take to get updated in-game? A: Similar to other dynamic items, individual performance upgrades will be available shortly after their most recent In-Form Item is available in-game. An upgrade based on a team’s winning streak will be updated within 48 hours of a team winning their fourth game in the winning streak.
Q: Will FUT 20 Headliners’ dynamic images change if they get an upgrade? A: Headliner items will have their own unique image, the image will remain the same regardless of how many performance based in-forms they get.

A: If a Headliners player transfers/goes on loan during the season the Headliners item will remain at their previous club until they either receive an IF at their new club or their new club achieves a club winning streak from the time the player joins onwards. At that point the Headliners item will be updated with the player’s new club.
