What If promo brings us live items in FUT 21

EA has dropped another teaser for the What If promo in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

Here we analyse whether the What If cards will be live items in FUT.

How do What If cards work in FIFA 21?

Unlike the dynamic player items seen in Ones to Watch or Headliners, What If introduces a new wrinkle by presenting team-oriented objectives that should these player items' real-life squad accomplish, will see these already boosted items get an additional +2 OVR stats boost.

For midfielders and attackers, the name of the game is their teams scoring 6 total goals over their next 5 league matches (effective from the moment they're released in-game).

For defenders and goalkeepers, the goal is to record 1 clean sheet any time over their next five league matches.

The items will be updated the following Wednesday following the conclusion of their next five domestic league matches.
