For the first time, each FUT Birthday player will receive a 5 star upgrade to either their skill move (SM) or their weak foot (WF) rating. If they have received a 5 Star Skill Move upgrade, they will now be able to perform the full range of skills within FUT making them a unique and challenging threat for your opponents.

Beyond the upgraded 5 Star Skill Moves or Weak Foot upgrade, FUT Birthday items will also receive ratings boosts, making them some of the most desirable items in the game.

 

Community Events

With Community Events, each player who completes Objectives in specified groups will contribute to a global XP pool. As this pool grows, the community will progress towards thresholds that unlock rewards for everyone who’s completed at least one objective in the event. They always start and end at 6pm (UK time zone).

Daily Objectives

At least three new objectives are released every day at 6pm (UK time zone), as part of Season Objectives. Complete dynamic Daily Objectives in-game or in the web & companion app to earn XP. From squad management goals to dynamic in-match challenges, the harder the challenge, more XP you’ll receive and the higher are your chances to win a better season reward. If you don’t claim your rewards before the Objectives reset, EA’ll automatically add them to your Club and you will be informed by a pop-up. Don’t forget that by completing a daily group, you will receive extra XP.

Foundations Objectives

Replacing Manager Tasks and Starter Objectives, the FIFA 21 Foundations Objectives were created to help the new FUT players to learn how this game mode works. With organized learning objectives grouped together by subjects such as trading, team building and chemistry, these objectives are always available since the first day.

Weekly Objectives

Complete the objectives in-game or in the web & companion app to earn new rewards. From squad management goals to dynamic in-match challenges, the harder the challenge, the better the reward you’ll receive.

If you don’t claim your rewards before the Objectives reset, EA’ll automatically add them to your Club and you will be informed by a pop-up. In case you miss one week’s objectives they will stay active in the game for a 2nd week, with the exception of the last week of a season which will expire when the Season does. New FIFA 21 Weekly Objectives are released every Friday at 6pm (UK time zone).

Team Events

In FIFA 21 Team Events, you can collaborate and compete by completing objectives in-game to unlock rewards as a community.

These events always start and end at 6pm (UK time zone).
