In-depth analysis of the FIFA 21 Ones to Watch event and items.
OTW items are released when the game comes out (early October).

Most of the players are available in FUT packs for 10 days, but a few ones can only be earned via objectives and squad building challenges.

The Ones to Watch items dynamically upgrade and have an opportunity to increase in ratings throughout the season. If you have a OTW item in your club, its ratings will automatically match that of the players latest TOTW, MOTM, TOTT, Hero or Record Breaker item. The better the player performs in real life, the higher their ratings become.
Q: What are Ones to Watch cards?
A: Ones to Watch, commonly abbreviated to OTW, is an In Form item category assigned to a very limited selection of players, replacing their regular cards on specific times.

Q: What makes Ones to Watch special?
A: The Ones to Watch items dynamically upgrade and have an opportunity to increase in ratings throughout the season. If you have a Ones to Watch item in your club, its ratings will automatically match that of the players latest TOTW, MOTM, TOTT, Hero or Record Breaker item. The better the player performs in real life, the higher their ratings become.

Q: What is a Live Item?
A: FIFA 21 Ones to Watch players are released as Live Items. The ratings on this item type update automatically, whether they are in your Club or listed on the Transfer Market.

Q: What are the criteria for picking Ones to Watch players?
A: FIFA 21 Ones to Watch players consist of a curated selection of the highest-profile and most promising players who have been permanently transferred or on full season loans between clubs in the most recent transfer window.

Q: Can a player aged 30 receive a OTW item?
A: Yes, it is possible. In the first two years, only players aged under 30 could receive one of these items but EA has changed the rules in FIFA 19.

Q: How many players receive one of these items?
A: Two teams will be released in packs and additional items will be available via SBCs and objectives.

Q: When OTW players are announced?
A: A few players are announced in August, while the rest is only unveiled when the game is released. The first team is announced on October 9 and the second team five days later.

Q: Are all players made available via FUT packs?
A: No. Some players are made exclusively available via objectives and squad building challenges.

Q: How can I get one of these cards?
A: You can get an OTW in the same way you can get any other card: on packs or on the transfer market. If you want to try your luck on packs, you can go to the store and buy them with coins or FIFA Points. Completing specific SBCs and objectives may also reward you with an OTW item.

Q: In which FUT packs I can find Ones to Watch items?
A: They can be found in any pack with players cards. Obviously, the chances of finding one of these cards are higher if you open a pack which contains more player cards.

Q: Is it possible to get an OTW item when opening a free pack?
A: Yes, it is.

Q: How long are FIFA 21 Ones to Watch items released in FIFA packs?
A: The first team is made available in packs for seven days, while the second is available for five.

Q: Can I get OTW items for free?
A: You may get Ones to Watch items from a pack or as a reward which could be tradeable or untradeable. By pre-ordering FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition, you will receive an OTW card for free (untradeable). However, the pre-order must be made before August 14, 20120.

Q: Can I get OTW items for free?
A: You may get Ones to Watch items from a pack or as a reward which could be tradeable or untradeable. By pre-ordering FIFA 21 Ultimate Edition, you will receive an OTW card for free (untradeable). However, the pre-order must be made before August 14, 20120

Q: When I will be able to open my free OTW item?
A: For those who pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition before August 14, you will receive a Guaranteed OTW Item (untradeable) when OTW kicks off on October 9. The OTW Item you receive will be based on when you open your pack: team 1 if you open from October 9 to October 16; team 2 if you open from October 16 to October 21; and any of the teams if you open after October 21.

Q: When do you think I should open the free OTW item?
A: Wait until October 14. From that day to October 16, you will already know both squads and still on time to decide if you want to pack an item from team 1, team 2 or a random player from both squads.

Q: Is it true that OTW items don’t have traits or specialities?
A: No. You may not find that information on the database but they have the same traits and specialities of their NIF cards.

Q: When is released the Ones to Watch event?
A: The Ones to Watch event is released when the game comes out: October 9.

Q: When were OTW released for the first time ever?
A: Ones to Watch items were a brand new card category in FIFA 17 Ultimate Team. Since then, they are being released every year.

Q: When the first offers will be out?
A: An OTW Player SBC and a OTW Player pick vote will be out on October 5, four days before the event start.

Q: Which offers can I find during the Ones to Watch event?
A: Dynamic items, squad building challenges, objectives and eventually promo packs available on the FUT store.

Q: When do Ones to Watch items get updated?
A: OTW items are upgraded based on TOTW (until the end of the 2020-21 season), MOTM, Hero, Record Breaker and Team Of The Tournament selections. OTW items will NOT be upgraded based on POTM, Award Winner, SBC, or other in-game event selection. Each item’s dynamic ratings will increase based on the players’ real-world performances throughout the season.

Q: How long does EA take to update an OTW item?
A: Once a player gets a Team of the Week, Man of the Match, European Team of the Tournament, Hero or Record Breaker item, EA only takes a few minutes to update his OTW card.

Q: Can OTW items be downgraded?
A: No, they can’t.

Q: Are stats in OTW items also updated?
A: Yes. The OTW cards are like duplicates of the best rated TOTW, MOTM, TOTT, Hero or Record Breaker card.

Q: What happens if an OTW Player is transferred/loaned to a different club?
A: The Ones To Watch Player Item type attributes and latest applicable in-form rating will be unaffected. However, his OTW player item type will remain at the players previous club until he gets an applicable in-form at which point the player’s club, crest and the dynamic image will be updated

Q: What happens if an OTW Player is transferred/loaned to a club that is not in FUT?
A: The Ones To Watch Player Item type will remain at the club he was previously at and he will not receive any further in-forms. His Ones To Watch Item type will continue to carry the last applicable in-form rating he received.

A: The Ones To Watch Player Item will be updated with the new nationality as soon as possible.

A: The player’s position on his Ones To Watch item type will not change. He will, however, continue to receive any attribute upgrades from that and future applicable in-forms.

Q: How long do Ones To Watch items continue to receive a stats boost?
A: If you have a Ones to Watch item in your club, its ratings will automatically match that of the players latest applicable In-Form until the end of that player’s domestic league season.
