Q: What is the Team of the Week?
A: Team of the Week, commonly abbreviated to TOTW, is a team of IF players released on a weekly basis. Players are chosen based on real-life performances throughout various leagues across the world. Q: When the TOTW was released for the first time?
A: The TOTW was released for the first time in FIFA 10. Since then, almost every week a selection of 18 or 23 players is released in unique items. Q: Who chooses the players for the Team of the Week?
A: A dedicated team from EA Sports. You can learn here
how they are chosen. Q: How many players are selected for each TOTW?
A: Each TOTW has 23 players. However, when there are lack of quality players, like during the Summer, Electronic Arts may select only 18 players. Q: It is possible to have two TOTW available at the same time?
A: No. TOTW never overlaps. As soon as the new one is released, the old one is gone. Q: How long are TOTW cards available in FIFA packs?
A: These cards are available in packs for exactly one week. After this, they are replaced by their regular cards in packs again, and are still available via the FUT transfer market. Q: I already own this player. Why my version wasn’t upgraded to the new TOTW item?
A: If you own the regular card of a TOTW player, your card will keep unchanged. If you want the improved version, you will need to buy the corresponding TOTW version in the market or cross your fingers when opening a pack in that week. Q: Do TOTW items replace the respective regular cards?
A: To each one of the TOTW players of this team, it is assigned a new black card which becomes available in packs for a week, replacing the corresponding regular card. In other words, in the week a player gets his TOTW cards in packs, it is impossible to find his regular card there. Q: Are certain stats upgraded to reflect a player’s TOTW performance?
A: Yes, if a player made three assists in a single match, for example, his passing stats would likely receive a significant upgrade. Q: Can I own the regular and the TOTW item of the same player in my club?
A: You can have the regular card and the TOTW card of the same player in your club. However, you cannot use them both in your squad at the same time. Q: Is it possible a player be released in a new position?
A: The position of the players in TOTW cards may change if, in the previous week, they played really well in a different position. Q: Can I play against the TOTW?
A: Yes, you can play against the Team of the Week in the ‘TOTW Challenge’ or in Squad Battles. Q: What happens when domestic leagues stop?
A: Usually, the TOTW players selection is based on the domestic leagues represented in the game. In extraordinary situations, like when these leagues are interrupted, players who have played well for their national teams can also be selected. Q: Why are TOTW items so important?
A: TOTW items are very important for OTW cards owners. Each time a player gets a new TOTW card, his OTW, if exists, also gets upgraded. They are also important for Weekend League players, since most of the FUT Champions cards awarded every week are based on them.
