FIFA 21: ‘What if’ promo confirmed, first team revealed

EA Sports have confirmed the first team for their new ‘What If?’ promo.

Gamers were caught off-guard by the new promotion, coming at a time when most of us were expecting the usual ‘Winter Refresh’.

Instead EA has brought us a collection of players who haven’t necessarily been getting much campaign attention, but are tipped to make a big difference for their clubs throughout the remainder of the campaign.

Unlike the dynamic player items seen in Ones to Watch or Headliners, ‘What If ‘introduces a new wrinkle by presenting team-oriented objectives that should these player items’ real-life squad accomplish, will see these already boosted items get an additional +2 OVR stats boost. 

Among those getting big ratings boosts are Chelsea’s N’Golo Kanté, Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho and Roma’s Chris Smalling.

For midfielders and attackers, their aim is for their teams to score six total goals over their next five league matches (effective from the moment they’re released in-game).

For defenders and goalkeepers, the goal is to record one clean sheet any time over their next five league matches. The items will be updated the following Wednesday following the conclusion of their next five domestic league matches.
