Enter TOTW Moments - the replacement squad will return every week that Team of the Week (TOTW) is absent, reviving an old In-Form team from a previous FIFA.

Keep reading to find out when the third TOTW Moments squad will arrive and what to expect.

Release Date

The second TOTW Moments squad will arrive on Wednesday, 1 April 2020.

The squad will be announced at 11am ET / 3pm GMT and will be released in-game at 2pm ET / 6pm GMT.

TOTW Moments Explained

Although TOTW Moments brings back an old TOTW, it’s not a carbon copy and there are a few noteworthy differences.

Primarily, the player stats have been updated, which seemingly reflect their current talent – for example, last week Walker had a boosted overall rating, whereas Arnoutovic didn’t quite receive the overall rating of his FIFA 18 card.

However, excitingly, the FIFA 20 cards retain their original position from the FIFA 18 TOTW, meaning the likes of centre forward Garth Bale returned!

Finally, as you’d imagine the players’ clubs have been updated to match their current locations.
