TOTW Moments

Following the suspensions of football around the world, EA has suspended the normal Team of the Week (TOTW) program and replaced it with TOTW Moments.

TOTW Moments will be a recurring program that will be based entirely on a historical TOTW release from past FUT titles.

Each squad will be a reflection of a specific TOTW that was released from March onwards in each product year.

TOTW Moments Ratings

All players that will be released will reflect their current teams, and their OVR increase will be in line with their FUT 20 upgrade path.

For example, in FUT 18 TOTW 28 Kyle Walker was given an 86 OVR Item in line with his FUT 18 upgrade path.

For his TOTW Moments Item, Kyle Walker will be an 87 OVR Item based on his FUT 20 upgrade path.

What does TOTW Moments mean for FUT?

TOTW Moments replaced TOTW in multiple places across FUT starting on Wednesday, March 18th. This included, amongst others:

  • FUT Champions Rewards
  • In packs
  • Weekly Featured Squad Battle within Squad Battles
  • SBC Requirements
  • Future FUT Objectives
  • Draft Mode

To ensure that Live Items continue to be valuable to players when building their squads, Ones to Watch and Headliners will be upgraded based on the new TOTW Moments Squads.

When the regular football calendar resumes, Ones to Watch and Headliners Items will continue to receive upgrades as they would have done previously.

TOTW Moments Squad 1

As mentioned the first TOTW Moments squad is the TOTW 28 from FIFA 18.

THROWBACK: This week’s TOTW Moments is the TOTW 28 squad from FIFA 18

As you can see, the TOTW 28 squad from FIFA 18 has returned including an 88-rated card for Matthijs De Ligt and a centre back Kyle Walker card!

TOTW Moments Squad 2 Prediction

With last week’s being FIFA 18’s TOTW 28, we think there is a chance EA could opt for FIFA 19’s TOTW 29.

BACK IN BLACK: Could these in-forms return to FIFA 20?

If FIFA 19’s TOTW 29 were to return, there would be boosted cards for Liverpool’s Andrew Robertson, Atletico’s Thomas Partey, Burnley’s Ben Mee and many more!
