EA Sports FC 24 is here and raring to go. Though the series has gone through a major rebrand, the essence of the game remains very much the same. Such is the case with their oldest in-game promotion of them all, the Team of The Week (TOTW).
For those who are not already familiar, the Team of The Week is a special promo that exists throughout the real-life football calendar. In it, EA Sports FC honors the efforts of the players across all of the leagues featured within the game. And with EA Sports' decision to merge the Men's and Women's leagues for Ultimate Team this year, the possibilities of who will be inducted into this promo become even greater. Below you will find a collection all of the TOTW squads thus far in EA Sports FC 24 as well as our predictions for who we think we be featured in the next promo release.

What Are EA FC 24 TOTW Cards
For the sake of anyone new to Ultimate team, here's a quick overview to explain how this promo works. 'Team of the Week', abbreviated as 'TOTW', is a weekly squad of 23 in-form players who receive an upgraded player card in Ultimate Team. These normally have improved stats compared to their basic Ultimate Team card.
The stat increases are made by EA Sports to reflect players stand out performances in real life games over the past week. For example, if England and Arsenal winger Bakayo Sake bangs in a hat-trick, chances are, he'll get a TOTW card with improved shooting stats. Likewise, if Harry Maguire manages a sensational overhead kick to score a goal, we'd put money on him getting a TOTW upgrade too.
Is TOTW The Same As In FIFA 23
No - There are a few unique changes that are new to TOTW in EA FC 24. More specifically here's what's changed which you need to know:
- All TOTW Players will be rated at least 80+ OVR
- Players from women's teams will feature in TOTW
- TOTW items can also receive weak foot and skill move upgrades
- All stats or skill upgrades will carry over to a player’s next TOTW version
EA FC 24 TOTW 1 Release Date
With both the EA Sports FC Web App and Companion App set to launch this week in conjunction with the Ultimate Edition's early access period we suspect we will see the first iteration of the TOTW released on September 20.
TOTW 1 Release Time For EA FC 24
In the past EA Sports has normally released their TOTW promos and new player cards at around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM BST. Sometimes we also get a teaser of who could be included a few hours before at around 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET / 3 PM BST, so stay tuned for hints. It might help you snag a few deals on the transfer market ahead of time.

TOTW 1 Predictions
There were a lot of highly engrossing matches throughout this past weekend but we believe that these players are likely candidates for TOTW 1:
- Henrikh Mkhitaryian - CAM - Inter
- Robert Lewandowski - ST - FC Barcelona
- Dusan Vlahovic - ST - Juventus
- Bernardo Silva - CM - Manchester City
- Bryan Christante - CM - AS Roma
- Tariq Lamptey - RB - Brighton & Hove Albion
- Wendie Renard - CB - Lyon
- Sarkina Karchaoui - LB - PSG
Both Sarkina Karchaoui and Wendie Renard have a strong chance of being the first female players to be featured in the EAFC TOTW. With both defenders managing to find the back of the net for the clubs last weekend.
Mkhitaryian proved to be instrumental in Inter's 5 - 1 rout of AC Milan in their derby match, weighing in with two goals and one assist. Much was the same for Bernardo Silva who conducted Manchester City to a hard-fought 3 - 1 win over West Ham United.
