Team of the Week

Team of the Week (TOTW) is a squad in FIFA Ultimate Team and FIFA Mobile, which is collected by EA and is formed by the best players from around the world who were in-form and have performed very well in their past week's international and/or club competitions. Team of the Week players, known as In-Form players (IF) will get an upgraded player card with increased stats and OVR rating based on their real life performance. EA reveals the latest Team of the Week lineup every Wednesday at 3pm UK time and the team will be available in FIFA Ultimate Team from 6pm on the same day until the next Wednesday at 5.59pm.

There are usually 52 Team of the Week squads during one year. This means, a FIFA game instalment will get maximum 52 TOTW squads.
