Ones to Watch items are upgraded based on:

  • Performance-based Special items
    OTW cards are upgraded every time the player receives a new TOTW or MOTM item (until the end of the 2022-23 season). OTW items will NOT be upgraded based on POTM, Award Winner, Record Breaker, TOTT, SBC, or other in-game event selection.

  • Wins to Watch
    OTW Items are eligible for a one-time ‘Wins to Watch’ upgrade. If their new club wins three out of their next eight domestic league games, starting from September 30, they receive a +1 boost.

  • Nations to Watch
    OTW Items are eligible for a one-time ‘Nations to Watch’ upgrade. If their national team wins any game at the FIFA World Cup 2022, they receive a +1 boost. They don’t have to feature in the game, or be part of their nation’s squad to be eligible for the upgrade.
Once a player gets a new Team of the Week or Man of the Match item, EA only takes a few minutes to update his OTW card. Wins to Watch and Nations to Watch upgrades take place on the first Wednesday after the achievement.
If you pre-ordered the Ultimate Edition, you will receive a Guaranteed OTW Item (untradeable) when OTW kicks off on September 30. The OTW Item you receive will be based on when you open your pack:
