EA Sports added a 96-rated Festival of FUTTIES version of Samuel Umtiti from Barcelona to FIFA 21 today. This item is available through the squad-building challenge (SBC) menu in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

This is Umtiti’s first special card in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team if you disregard his FUTTIE Nominee version, which didn’t change any of his stats. Players had to vote between an 85-rated Koke and 83-rated Umtiti back in July and Koke won. But EA is now celebrating his nominee version.

The devs greatly boosted all of Umtiti’s skills, including his Pace (+25), Physical (+15), Passing (+14), Dribbling (+14), Defending (+14), and his Shooting (+14), when you compare this new card to his 83-rated gold version.

He has great and balanced stats with all skills being 76 and above, including a 97-rated Defending and 94-rated Physical. He also has two-star skill moves and a three-star weak foot. If you apply the engine chemistry style, you’ll increase his Passing (+6), Pace (+4), and Dribbling (+5), which will maximize his Short Passing.

This SBC costs around 242,600 FUT coins on PlayStation, 239,550 on Xbox, and 262,650 on PC. If you’re interested in completing this SBC, you’ll have to turn in three squads: Tactical Emulation, La Liga, and France. You’ll have until Aug. 27 to complete these squads and get this FUTTIES version of Umtiti.

The first solution requires an 81-rated squad with 75 chemistry minimum and at least one player from Barcelona. The second one asks for an 82-rated squad with 70 chemistry minimum and at least one player from LaLiga. The third solution requires an 85-rated squad with 65 chemistry minimum and at least one player from France.
