How to Upgrade FIFA 23 Ones to Watch Cards

The Ones to Watch (OTW) players in FUT 23 are cards with dynamic ratings. Ones to Watch cards feature players who have changed clubs during the 2022 summer transfer period. These players will release as two separate OTW teams. And, it has already been confirmed that Erling Haaland, Darwin Nunez, Raheem Sterling, and Richarlison will be featured in OTW Team 1. The first OTW promo team will launch on September 30th. And that’s when will you receive your Ones to Watch pre-order player. Now, let’s see how the Ones to Watch Cards upgrade system works in FIFA 23. As per the official FIFA 23 Ones to Watch blog post:

  • Ones To Watch player items will upgrade when a player receives a qualifying performance-based item in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team. Such as Team of the Week or Man of the Match.
  • Ones To Watch players can also upgrade via the “Wins to Watch” mechanic, based on their team’s performances. They are eligible for a one-time upgrade if their team wins three out of their next eight domestic league games starting from 30th September.
  • In addition, FUT 23 includes an additional upgrade opportunity for OTW players tied to the FIFA World Cup 2022 “Nations to Watch”. Ones To Watch players will be eligible for a one-time upgrade if their national team wins any game at the FIFA World Cup 2022.

So there you have it. These are the three methods in which you can upgrade your “Ones to Watch” players’ cards. Finally, it should be noted that the OTW players don’t need to be featured in the matches of their teams to be eligible for the upgrade. Wins will count even if they don’t play in a game. With that said, that’s all you need to know.

Nikola's been playing video games since his father bought him the NES and the Sega Mega Drive in the early '90s. Later, he became a predominantly PC gamer who enjoys narrative-driven RPGs, real-time strategies, and psychological/survival horror games. Nevertheless, he appreciates any game that's worth his time.With over 12 years of experience in esports & gaming journalism, I like to think that my guides once helped a NASA scientist to beat a game. What I'm trying to say is that I should be credited for NASA's Mars missions. (I'm just kidding, please don't shoot me). In my free time, I dream of the day when I will finally start clearing my Steam backlog.
