The Road To The Final (RTTF) promo is back for FIFA 21 with a new set of dynamic player cards that upgrade based on teams’ progress through UEFA Champions League and Europa League.
How does RTTF items work?
For those who are not familiar with this promo just note that all RTTF player items will receive an upgrade at the launch of the campaign and from there each card will receive a further upgrade each time their team succeeds at select stages throughout the tournament like displayed in the next infographics:
As you can see for each tournament stage advancement, the RTTF players will receive a +1 OVR upgrade except for the Europa League Knockout stage that will be rewarded with a +2 OVR upgrade. Please note as well that Road To The Final items can take up to a few days to update in-game.
Another important fact to keep in mind is that if a player selected in the UEFA Champions League RTTF team finishes 3rd with their team in the UCL group stage, that player will be updated to a UEFA Europa League RTTF card and will continue to receive upgrades if their club advances in the Europa League tournament.
Therefore, players around the world chase these cards to open paid packs offered by the game for real money, which is very similar to gambling but without the usual online slot machines, roulette or blackjack.
