As most of you know, all the major football competitions have been suspended due to the corona virus outbreak and thus the usual Team Of The Week released in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team had to be replaced by something else, and that something else is Team Of The Week Moments!
These brand new TOTW items will be based on old TOTW releases from past FUT titles. Each squad will be a reflection of a past TOTW from March onwards.
This first TOTW Moments will be a re-release of FIFA 18 TOTW 28:
- GK: Kasper Schmeichel 83 -> 85 -> 86 (Leicester City)
- LWB: David Alaba 85 -> 86 (Bayern Munich)
- CB: Kyle Walker 84 -> 86 -> 87 (Manchester City)
- CB: Matthijs De Ligt 85 -> 86 -> 87 -> 88 (Piemonte Calcio)
- CB: Miranda 83 -> 85 (Jiangsu Suning)
- CM: Paulinho 84 -> 86 (Guangzhou Evergrande)
- CM: Andrés Iniesta 83 -> 85 (Meiji Yasuda)
- LM: Ricardo Quaresma 81 -> 84 (Kasımpaşa SK)
- CAM: James Rodríguez 85 -> 86 (Real Madrid)
- LW: Marko Arnautovic 82 -> 84 -> 86 (Shanghai SIPG)
- CF: Gareth Bale 85 -> 86 (Real Madrid)
- GK: Al Mosailem 67 -> 76 (Al Ahli)
- LWB: Bryan Oviedo 69 -> 77 (FC København)
- LWB: Sead Kolašinac 79 -> 82 (Arsenal)
- CAM: Jesse Lingard 82 -> 84 (Manchester United)
- CAM: Vincent Aboubakar 78 -> 82 (Porto)
- RW: Miguel Layún 77 -> 81 (Monterrey)
- ST: Marc McNulty 68 -> 76 (Hibernian)
- ST: Ola Kamara 75 -> 81 (D.C. United)
- ST: Bradley Wright-Phillips 77 -> 81 (Los Angeles FC)
These in-forms will be in packs until Wednesday, March 25th 6PM UK when the second TOTW Moments squad will be released.
Remember that all players released in this special edition TOTW will reflect their current teams, and their OVR increase will be in line with their FUT 20 upgrade path. As an example, FUT 18 TOTW 28 Kyle Walker was given an 86 OVR. For his FUT 20 TOTW Moments Item, Kyle Walker will be an 87 OVR Item based on his FUT 20 upgrade path.
Retired, banned or absent players from FIFA 20 will not feature in TOTW Moments squads even though they were present in the past TOTW.
As of today, TOTW Moments will replace the normal TOTW in multiple areas in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team including:
- FUT Champions Rewards
- In packs
- Weekly Featured Squad Battle within Squad Battles
- SBC Requirements
- Future FUT Objectives
- Draft Mode
The Live Items present in-game like Ones to Watch and Headliners will continue to be upgraded based on the TOTW Moments squad releases. However, Headliners win streak upgrades will be paused until the 2019/20 season resumes.
The UCL & UEL Road To The Final item upgrades, POTM Awards SBCs and MOTM items will be paused until the respective tournaments resume. Also the Marquee Matchups SBC will be replaced with Marquee Matchups Moments SBC until the current football season resumes.
Lastly, Nintendo Switch players will continue to have TOTW 26 active in packs until the football season returns.
