What are FIFA 23 Ones To Watch cards?

Ones To Watch are one of the various special card types in FIFA 23. Unlike your regular upgrade cards such as Team of the Week, OTW cards scale up throughout the season. Every time the player in question appears in EA's Team of the Week, their OTW card gets an OVR upgrade of +1. As such, the card could skyrocket in value and performance over the course of the year, making it handy to keep in your club.

They tend to be the very first promo card type in each FIFA game, to usher in the biggest transfers and celebrate the new season. As such they can be very hard to get your hands on, with everyone eager to pad out their fledgling team with a dynamic card.

That's it for our look at Ones To Watch cards in FIFA 23! Until then, feel free to read up on the Modern Warfare 2 release date, which is coming around soon.
