What If certainly got the FUT community talking, with not everyone completely clear on how the promo works.

The cards are dictated by the form of the players' clubs over the next games.

For attackers and midfielders, their clubs must score six goals in the next five games - for defenders and goalkeepers, they just need to keep one clean sheet in that time.

With a second set of players on the way, here's everything you need to know.

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).
