FIFA 21 OTW cards are among the most popular in the series. OTW stands for Ones To Watch, and as with previous editions FIFA 21 sees these items upgrade dynamically based upon real-life performances. Every player who received a card moved to a new club during the summer, so Gareth Bale (Tottenham) and Luis Suarez (Atletico Madrid) are among the big hitters. We've got the full FIFA 21 OTW list below, along with all your other essential Ones To Watch intel.

What are FIFA 21 OTW cards?

If you're new to Ultimate Team and you're not sure how Ones To Watch cards work, let us explain. OTW cards are special players that start off with the same stats as their base card, but can upgrade over the course of the football season.

Whenever a player with an OTW card gets an in-form (Team Of The Week), their OTW card will be updated to the same stats as that in-form. Therefore, getting your hands on an OTW player who gets a lot of in-forms throughout the season is a goldmine for the rest of the game. On the other hand, investing in OTW players that don't perform in real life can be a waste of coins because they stay the same as their base card for the whole game.

In a cool new addition, players also get upgraded if and when they earn a Man Of The Match, European Team Of The Tournament, Hero or Record Breaker card. For instance, Diogo Jota was boosted to an OVR of 83 after appearing in the FIFA 21 TOTGS.

Give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
