FIFA 22: What are Featured TOTW items in Ultimate Team?

EA has released a fresh set of pitch notes, outlining a completely new card that is coming to FUT 22.

So, here's everything you need to know about the new Featured Team of the Week items in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team.

What are Featured TOTW items?

EA has created the Featured TOTW item in order to not let performance-based items, such as Team of the Week cards, fall behind the ratings of items released as part of promos that arrive later in the game cycle.

Instead of a standard TOTW boost, Featured TOTW Items will be given a larger boost, increasing their appeal in squad building.

ALL NEW - Here's an example of a Featured TOTW Item compared to a standard TOTW boost

At launch, to be eligible for a Featured TOTW Item, a player’s highest-rated base or performance-based item must be rated 80 OVR or below and they must not have an active Live Item.


In addition, any future performance-based items these players earn will build off of this boosted rating.

The star icon above the overall rating on the Featured TOTW item will visually distinguish Featured TOTW items from standard TOTW items.

It is important to note that Featured TOTW items will still function as regular TOTW items do across various aspects of FUT including in SBCs, Squad Requirements, Mode Rewards, Objective Requirements and packs.
