FIFA 21 Ones to Watch: Confirmed FUT 21 OTW players, predictions, release date

The FIFA 21 Ultimate Team Ones to Watch promo is coming soon, with EA confirming the promo’s release date.

The Ones to Watch (OTW) FUT promo is a yearly promo that launches around the new FIFA game’s release date, the promo normally includes high-profile players who have transferred to another club during the summer transfer window. There’s also a Winter Ones to Watch promo too that normally launches in February after the January transfer window.

These players are given dynamic Ones to Watch FUT cards that upgrade throughout the season based on their real-world performances for their new clubs. OTW cards will upgrade whenever that player is included in a TOTW performance based FUT promo, matching the boosts given to the TOTW card, which makes them a lot more expensive and valuable than their normal versions.
