So, what are FIFA 20 Headliners?

Headliners first arrived in FIFA 19 as a special line of FUT cards that gave boosts to top-performing and over-achieving players.

These cards operate similarly to Ones to Watch cards, except with Headliners, the player’s rating will always remain one point higher than their latest in-form card.

Not only that, but new for this year, Headliner cards will also receive an additional one point upgrade if their club wins four league matches in a row.

How do Headliners work?

Thankfully, Reddit user HappyChan has come up with a TLDR explanation about exactly how Headliners work

  • The criteria selection is for players that are currently in form (doesn't matter if they are +90 rating). But they seem to have excluded live cards and TOTYs
  • The headliner will stay +1 (permanent )of their highest performance card*

  • If a player is transferred/loaned, it won't be changed until he gets an IF card from that club
  • The position in the card will stay the same, no matter what

The Headliners Team 1 consisted of a serious amount of talent, so it makes sense that gamers can’t wait to see what Team 2 will bring.

Performance cards: Performance-Based in-forms include: TOTW (until the end of the 2019-20 season), MOTM, Hero, Record Breaker and Team Of The Tournament

It's also worth noting that win streaks count from this day on, too.

When are the Headliners being released? And what about leaks?

FIFA fans have been desperate to find out which players will be arriving in Headliners Team 2 especially after a new leak emerged online.
