There are seemingly dozens of card types, but Storyline cards are reserved for players completing seasonal rewards.
While the formula is very much the same this year, there are a few tweaks to it, specifically in the rewards department.
Here's what we know about Season 1 of FUT 21!
FIFA 21 Ultimate Team Season 1
Season 1 for FIFA 21 Ultimate Team can start working through their season pass on the 30th September; this is when the Web App goes live.
The new season lasts 51 days and will end on the 20th November 2020 at 5.59pm.
FIFA 21 Season 1 Storyline FUT Cards Revealed
Unlockable through the game's "Battle Pass" style rewards system, these players are getting 85-rated cards:
- Alexandre Lacazette - Arsenal (ST)
- Marcel Sabitzer - RB Leipzig (CM)
- Juan Bernat - PSG (LB)

To earn one of these players, you'll need to hit level 30 on the reward track.
That can take some doing, but EA has added a small reward at level 15 in the past to help motivate players. Unfortunately, we don't know what those are yet.
Why grind all 30 levels? It's simple - these players are likely to have better stats than their standard versions.
Don't forget, though, you can't nab all three - you'll have to pick carefully based on your squad's needs and chemistry.
For what it's worth, we reckon Lacazette could do with a little more pace...
