On February 26, EA Sports and the FIFA 21 team unveiled a new promo in Football Ultimate Team (FUT), entitled What If. This promo is designed to take a look into the future, thanks to new player items that are eligible for OVR boosts based on real-life performance. But, how exactly can these cards get upgrades? Let’s go over how What If cards work in FUT.
How What If cards work in FUT
What If cards in FIFA are eligible for a +2 OVR boost. However, the team that the player belongs to must meet a requirement in order to get that jump.
Forwards and midfielders are eligible for a one time, +2 OVR boost should the club that the player belongs to score at least six goals over the next five domestic league matches. To illustrate, let’s take a look at Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, who did receive a 90 OVR What If card on February 26. To get Sancho up to a 92 OVR, Borussia Dortmund will need to score at least six goals over the next five Bundesliga matches.
Defenders and goalkeepers who receive a What If card are also eligible for a +2 boost. In order for those players to get those jumps, the team that the player belongs to must record at least one clean sheet, which is game in which the team does not concede a goal over the course of the match. over the next five domestic league matchups.
Keep in mind with these cards that the player tracking for these items does not start until the player item has been released in FUT.
