FIFA 20 Winter Upgrade: All info and Premier League predictions

The next big FIFA 20 update is just around the corner: The Winter Upgrades. Various top stars will be happy about a new overall ranking.

The Winter Upgrades are always a possibility to get better players at a lower price by smart investments. But what exactly are the Winter Upgrades and how can you use them best?

Winter Upgrades – what is that?

The strongest players of the first round automatically get an upgrade, i.e. all your special cards get a higher rating with the refresh. However, the upgrade does not affect players’ existing standard gold cards. The update will not upgrade standard players in your squad, but you can draw their improved cards from packs. There will be no downgrades this year.

When are the winter upgrades coming?

Last year, FIFA started the winter upgrades on Friday, February 15th. So most likely we can already look forward to the first refresh slide this Friday, February 14th. The other leagues were released in 2019 in a two-day rhythm. In order: Premier League, Bundesliga, Serie A, LaLiga, Ligue 1 and finally the rest of the world.

How high are the upgrades & what will be upgraded?

Gold cards get an overall upgrade between +1 to +3, bronze and silver players can get higher upgrades. Also, in some cases, the “weak foot” and “dribbling skills” abilities are increased. Also, players’ positions may occasionally be changed.

How does it work with the special cards?

All special cards receive the same upgrade as standard cards with a rating of at least 83, and this applies to almost every type of special card, whether it is a TOTW, Headliner, OTW, Hero card, etc. Only with the Scream cards, this is not quite clear yet. But only if the standard card has a higher rating than the weakest special card after the upgrade, it will be upgraded. Especially here FIFA players can make big profits by buying the special cards before the upgrades and selling them more expensive after the upgrades.

Which players will receive an upgrade in the Premier League?

The Premier League will most likely get their upgrades this Friday. The website sofifa.com collects performance data from all players throughout the season and calculates the FIFA rankings. Over the past few years, this data has always been a very reliable indicator for winter upgrades.

This is what the updates in the Premier League could look like this year:

Fabinho, ZDM, Liverpool 85 -> 86
Andy Robertson, LV, Liverpool 85 -> 86
Giorginio Wijnaldum, ZM, Liverpool 84 -> 85
Riyad Mahrez, RF, Man City 84 -> 85
Trent Alexander-Arnold, RV, Liverpool 83 -> 85
Jordan Henderson, ZDM, Liverpool 83 -> 84
Lucas, ST, Tottenham 83 -> 84
Mason Mount, ZOM, Chelsea 75 -> 79
Daniel James, LM, Manchester United 72 -> 77
Wilfred Ndidi, ZDM, Leicester City 81 -> 84
Adama Traoré, RF, Wolverhampton Wanderers 74 -> 77
Sadio Mané, LF, Liverpool – 88 -> 89
Roberto Firmino, ST, Liverpool – 86 ->88
Jamie Vardy, ST, Leicester City – 82 -> 85
Tammy Abraham, ST, Chelsea – 76 -> 79

The interesting thing is the development of special cards. If you invest quickly now, you could be making a big profit in just a few days. All information is, of course without guarantee.

These players are a safe investment

Especially the upgrades of the Liverpool professionals seem very interesting. Because of the almost perfect season of the “Reds”, fans can probably look forward to many upgrades. Sadio Mané, for example: If he gets an upgrade, as sofifa predicted, all his special cards will go up as well. The second information card with a current rating of 90 would then increase to 91. Currently, this costs 600,000 coins on the Xbox. But with the winter upgrades, the price would rise again.

In case of an upgrade, Mané’s second Informkarte would rise to 91.

The situation is similar with striker Roberto Firmino. Currently, the Scream card with a rating of 88 costs almost one million coins on the Playstation. Should the announced +2 upgrade come, those interested in the all-rounder card would certainly have to go a lot further. But it’s not clear if the scream cards will get an upgrade. In Fifa 19, this was not the case.

So this investment is, of course, very risky and certainly not made for everyone. But also the 87 Hero card, which is currently available for 120k, would increase to an 89 total and thus also in coin value.

This is what Firmino could look like after the winter upgrade. The Scream card will certainly cost over a million coins – but the Gold card is also worth its weight in gold.

A cheap but profitable investment is Trent Alexander-Arnold. The Englishman is currently probably the best legal defender in the world and has therefore also found a place in the Team of the Year. His current 83 rating does not seem to do justice to his strong season performance so far. Therefore sofifa predicts a +2 upgrade.

It would be clever to invest in his second information card with an 86 rating. This currently costs 120,000 coins on Xbox and Playstation. It will probably rise to 88 and also gain in coin value.

Will there be a +2 upgrade from Trent Alexander-Arnold?

Prime icon moments are also announced

With the winter update, new Ones to watch cards are also patched into the game. These cards will increase with each in-game upgrade. All players who have moved to a new club during the winter break are eligible. Hot candidates for an OTW card in the Bundesliga are Dortmund’s Erling Haaland and Emre Can, and Bavaria’s new right-back Alvaro Odriozola. Internationally, Christian Eriksen and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who are new to Inter and AC Milan, respectively, could get an OTW card.

Also, the eagerly awaited Prime Icon Moments cards could be released. EA has already announced them with the release of FIFA 20.

The Icon-Moments maps are the strongest icon maps in the whole game. The icons will be honoured with the new cards for special moments in their career and get another value boost.
