They’re set to write the headlines in 2021 thanks to their incredible form, glimpses of potential under a new manager, operating in a new system or position, or a return from the treatment table. FUT 21 Headliners celebrates these players with special unique dynamic items that are permanently upgraded with the potential to be further upgraded based on individual and team performances throughout the 2020/21 season!
FUT 21 Headliners Event
At the launch of the event, each FUT 21 Headliners player item is released at one in-form upgrade higher than their latest qualifying performance-based In-Form (TOTW, MOTM, Hero or Team of the Group Stage item) or their base item. Each time a Headliner gets a performance-based In-Form, their Headliner item will also receive an In-Form upgrade. This ensures that their Headliner item will always stay one in-form ahead for the remainder of the season.
In addition, FUT 21 Headliners will also receive an additional one-time permanent upgrade if their club achieves four back to back wins during the remainder of the domestic league season. If this occurs, the Headliners item will remain two In-Forms ahead of their last performance-based In-Form throughout FUT 21.
The first team of FUT 21 Headliners was available from January 8, while the second one was released one week later.
