FIFA 21: TOTW Upgrade Cheapest Solution For Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5 And PC


A new TOTW upgrade is now available for FIFA 21 Ultimate Team!

Players can submit a selection of highly-rated players in exchange for a randomly selected TOTW player from the past TOTW squads.

It's the perfect SBC for those that want to complete a high priced SBC, which requires TOTW players, such as the Icon SBCs that released last week.

You may even get lucky and pull a valuable player that fits perfectly into your squad!

So how much will it cost me? Here's the cheapest solution.


The SBC went live on the 27th December at 6pm GMT.

The SBC will expire on 1st January at 5.59pm GMT.


To complete this TOTW Upgrade SBC, you'll need to submit the following:

  • 83 rated team
  • 30 chemistry
  • 11 players in the squad

Cheapest Solution

This squad should cost you 15,000-17,000 coins.

  • GK - 83 CASTEELS
  • LB - 83 MANDANDA
  • CB - 83 TRAPP
  • CB - 83 HRADECKY
  • RB - 83 VELA
  • CM - 82 RAMSEY
  • CM - 82 BUFFON
  • CM - 83 TADIC
  • LW - 83 PAU LOPEZ
  • ST - 83 DZEKO
  • RW - 83 VISCA

Solution Tips

The requirements are pretty straight forward and will require an 83 rated team.

You can use a couple of 82 rated cards to reach your target, as well as throw in an 84 so you spend less on 83 rated players.

But be warned, the difference in 82 and 83 rated players is relatively low at the moment, ut the upgrade to an 84 is much steeper.

If you want to save cash, try investing in as many GKs as your chemistry will allow as they are noticeably cheaper than outfield players.

Serie A has an abundance of 83 rated players in it to choose from.

To reach the required team rating, you'll need the following players (or equivalent):

  • 9 x 83 rated players
  • 2 x 82 rated players

Is It Worth It?

So is it worth it? It depends on your intentions.

If you've got your eye on a particular in-form that would cost a lot it's your best bet at achieving them for a fraction of the price.

You can also save it for a special SBC down the line if you managed to grab a high rated player.
