The FIFA Live content team have revealed more information on what to expect from FIFA 21 Ultimate Team this season.

During these early access periods, players can earn special rewards.

Early Access special rewards

One of the rewards available to early access players is a set of Pre-Launch Objectives. This gives players the chance to earn a reward pack which contains an untradeable 80-84 OVR player pick and a 10 game loan TOTW player.
