FIFA Mobile fans will have the chance to enjoy a new feature starting this weekend called Impact Players, similar to FIFA 17’s Ones To Watch.

This program highlights a group of players and based on their performance in their weekend fixture, can see an increase in their overall player rating.

All players featured for the particular week can increase up to 10 OVR points for every interception, shot or key pass they do. Each successful interception, shot, or key pass increases their rating one point up to 10 points. Meaning if you have a 74-OVR rated Impact Player and they have a strong match on the weekend, their Impact Player Item can increase to an 84-OVR.

These player boosts are permanent but only apply to the match for the weekend they are available for. Be sure to check the back of the player item to see which match applies. Again, Impact Player ratings can only increase 10 overall points.

Impact Players will usually get updated on Monday night (after 18:00 PT, 2:00 am UK). For this weekend the Impact Players are Giuliano, Derdiyok, Bradley, Mina and Roldan.


Starting this week we will also cover the FIFA Mobile TOTW! Please keep in mind that the usual FIFA 17 TOTW and FIFA Mobile TOTW are slightly different in terms of players, ratings and card types.
