One of the longstanding traditions in Ultimate Team, Team of the Week cards are a consistent source of fresh content. Every Wednesday, the best performers from recent domestic and international fixtures receive upgraded cards to replace their normal ones in packs for the week. These cards are based on real-world performances and keep the game dynamic.
