EA Sports has suspended the normal Team of the Week (TOTW) in FIFA 20 Ultimate Team since football leagues canceled their activities due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But today, the devs revealed a new system called TOTW moments and its first batch to replace the usual TOTW. “TOTW Moments will be a recurring program that will be based entirely on a historical TOTW release from past FUT titles,” EA said.

“All players that will be released will reflect their current teams, and their OVR [overall] increase will be in line with their FUT 20 upgrade path,” EA said. “For example, in FUT 18 TOTW 28 Kyle Walker was given an 86 OVR Item in line with his FUT 18 upgrade path. For his TOTW Moments Item, Kyle Walker will be an 87 OVR Item based on his FUT 20 upgrade path.”

For now on, the TOTW moments will replace the regular TOTW in everything that concerns FUT: WL rewards, packs, squad-building challenges requirements, draft mode, future FUT objectives, and the weekly featured squad battle. This batch of TOTW moments cards will be available in packs today at 1pm CT until next week when a new selection will be released.

Here are the first FIFA 20 TOTW moments. It includes the players’ new overall rating as well as the overall from its gold card and its previous TOTW card—if he had one before.
