FIFA 20 Team of the Week: Will it Return?

FIFA 20 Team of the Week is a staple of the most popular mode in FIFA, Ultimate Team. This season though, TOTW has been taken in a different direction.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, most professional soccer leagues were either cancelled or suspended, so it was no longer possible to consistently release a TOTW. This prompted the creation of Team of the Week Moments, which are cards celebrating past performances that already received a TOTW upgrade.

Now, though, many leagues in Europe are planning or have already made plans to return in the near future, but it has not been confirmed whether or not regular TOTW will return as well. Leagues are planning to return on different dates, so the TOTW would not feature players from every league as it normally does, but EA could reintegrate each league as it returns.

The Bundesliga became the first major European league to return this weekend, so Ultimate Team players will find out what EA will do next Wednesday. Potentially, there could be an exclusively-Bundesliga TOTW this week, or EA could continue using the TOTW Moments mold until more leagues return.

An all-Bundesliga TOTW would be cool to see because it's something different that FIFA fans haven't seen before. The coronavirus pandemic has forced them to get creative, and they have shown that they can do that.

Should we get the all-Bundesliga TOTW next week, there would be some great cards. Julian Brandt played great against Schalke on Saturday, contributing two assists. Marcus Thuram should also be in consideration for his man of the match performance against Eintracht Frankfurt.
