How do OTW upgrades work in FIFA 23?

FIFA 23 Ones to Watch are cards featuring popular and prestigious players that were transferred in the latest transfer window. These cards can receive upgrades based on their performance at their new club, making them incredibly strong in Ultimate Team.

FIFA 23 OTW cards can earn upgrades in a few different ways. These are:

  • TOTW and MOTM items
  • Wins to Watch
  • Nations to Watch

We’ll explain each of these terms briefly below, explaining how FIFA 23 OTW upgrades work for each.

TOTW and MOTM items

Whenever an OTW player receives a TOTW (Team of the Week) or MOTM (Man of the Match) card in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team, their OTW card will receive a +1 overall upgrade. TOTW and POTM cards are selected based on performance in real life matches happening during the season and in cup matches, so these upgrades rely solely on the players’ performance in real life.

Wins to Watch upgrade

Wins to Watch (WTW) are another way to upgrade OTW cards in FIFA 23. From the start of the season, FIFA 23 tracks the performance of an OTW player’s club to see how many games they win. It tracks them for the first eight fixtures of the season after the promotion began. If an OTW player’s club wins at least three of those games, the OTW card gets a +1 overall upgrade. This can only happen once, and will not repeat for the following eight games. The OTW card gets the Wins to Watch upgrade regardless of whether the OTW player was actually on the pitch, as it’s the club’s performance that matters here.

Nations to Watch upgrade

Nations to Watch (NTW) are a new way to upgrade OTW cards in FIFA 23, thanks to the upcoming 2022 World Cup. Nations to Watch tracks the OTW player’s national team, monitoring their performance during the World Cup. If their team wins a World Cup match, the OTW player will receive a +1 overall upgrade. Like Wins to Watch, the OTW card gets this upgrade regardless of whether the OTW is actually on the team.


FIFA 23 OTW pack: How to get the OTW preorder bonus in FIFA 23

Most OTW players can come in any pack that contains gold players in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team. However, those who preordered FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition will also gain an instant OTW pack when they first load the game. This FIFA 23 OTW pack contains one random OTW card, which means you could get OTW Haaland or Lewandowski in your very first pack.

It's important to note that this OTW pack is only available to those who preorder the Ultimate Edition. If you purchase FIFA 23 Ultimate Edition after launch, you will not be eligible for the OWT pack in Ultimate Team. However, if you pre-ordered and have not loaded the game yet, your pack will still be available when you do play FIFA 23.

There are currently no other ways to get an OTW pack directly from the store in FIFA 23, so you’ll need to either buy gold packs and cross your fingers, or head to the transfer market to buy OTW cards directly from other players.


FIFA 23 Ones to Watch challenges and SBCs

There are some FIFA 23 OTW cards that you can unlock through challenges and SBCs. You can find these players, who are not available in packs, listed below with information on whether they are currently active or expired and no longer available:

  • Raheem Sterling (Expired)
  • Sergino Dest (Expired)
  • Richarlison (Expired)
  • Franck Kessie (Expired)
  • Angel Di Maria (Expired)

As you can see, all of the OTW cards that were part of an SBC or objective have now expired, meaning you can no longer earn them in FIFA 23.


That wraps up our FIFA 23 OTW tracker, but we've got plenty of other FIFA guides for you to check out. If you're after more top players, take a look at our Around the World, First XI, Seven League Boots, and Puzzle Master SBC solutions. If you prefer career mode, you'll want to check out our list of FIFA 23 career mode wonderkids and hidden gems. Regardless of the mode, make sure you're familiar with the top techniques with our guides on how to do a power shot, how to do an outside foot shot, and how to do a low driven shot in FIFA 23.
