What If cards out now with new dynamic twist

'What If' has arrived on FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

The new FIFA 21 promo on FUT 21 is one never seen before, and it looks a belter.

Here's all the news as it comes in.

As expected, Alejandro Gomez is the Sevilla star included, but his 90 rating is trumped by a 91 N'Golo Kante.


Release Date

It's official, What If arrived to FIFA Ultimate Team on Friday, 26 February.

The promo began at 1pm ET / 6pm GMT and is expected to run for two weeks.

What is What If?

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.

All Cards


The What If promo has released one squad so far, with another to follow next week.

N'Golo Kante and Alejandro Gomez are the standout players so far, with Jadon Sancho also boasting a 90 OVR card.

Leeds United star Raphinha is the first SBC released in the promo, and his card looks epic.

Take a look at the What If cards here.

Winter Upgrades

No matter what promo events arrive over the next few weeks, we expect some Winter Upgrades to be released at some point.

These players are rewarded for outperforming their ratings on FUT 21, with new basic cards released to reflect their efforts.

PROSPECT - Will Bruno become a 90 OVR soon

We think Bruno Fernandes could headline these upgrades, and you can check out our Premier League Upgrade predictions here.

We expected this as part of the Winter Refresh, and that could still arrive at a later stage.
