Predictions

Ones to Watch (OTW) was the first promo of FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, and we are expecting it to return this winter.

With the January transfer window open, keep an eye out for any comings and goings as they could feature in this promo.

Release Date

There are still plenty of promo events to take place this winter, so Winter OTW could be a few weeks away.

We are currently midway through the Headliners event, and it looks as though Team of the Year (TOTY) is up next.

We must also consider that the transfer window will be over by the time Winter OTW rolls around, so we are looking at February for the release date.

With such a packed schedule, we think the earliest that Winter OTW will drop is Friday, 5 February, with Friday, 12 February more likely.

Ones to Watch

The Ones to Watch cards have made winter returns in the past, and we expect that t be the case on FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

OTW cards have dynamic ratings which increase based on real-life performance.

Any Team of the Week (TOTW), Man of the Match (MOTM), Team of the Group Stage (TOTGS) or Hero cards granted to the player will also increase their OTW overall too to match their highest rated card.

These players are selected from the biggest transfers at the time, so we are hoping for some exciting moves this January.

Predictions

We are still in the early stages of the transfer window, but we have seen some notable signings already that could feature in Winter OTW.

The biggest move so far is Hungarian youngster Dominik Szoboszlai switching from RB Salzburg to RB Leipzig for £18 million.

Danish right back Joakim Maehle has joined Atalanta for around £10 million. With their attacking style, Maehle could be a shrewd acquisition.

Whether we see players of the caliber of Bruno Fernandes and Christian Eriksen, we will have to wait and see.
