FIFA 20 fans have been put on alert about the next TOTW release in FUT Ultimate Team. EA has updated FIFA 20 players about what to expect from TOTW next week following the suspension of a number of major football leagues. On Friday it was announced that all British elite football, including Premier League matches, will be suspended until at least April 3.
The suspension of the EPL, EFL, FA Women’s Super League and Women’s Championship matches is to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
The Premier League isn’t the only major footballing competition that has suspended matches as a result of the coronavirus.
Spain’s La Liga, the Dutch Eredivisie, Portugal’s Primeira Liga and America’s MLS have all been suspended over the coronavirus.
The lack of European fixtures will no doubt affect the amount of players that can be selected by EA for the next FIFA 20 TOTW squad.

And the FIFA Direct Communication Twitter, who give updates to fans straight from the devs, has explained what players should expect next week.
On Wednesday March 18 FIFA 20 TOTW 27 is scheduled to release, however EA has said they are monitoring the “ongoing worldwide situation”.
The FIFA makers said the current plan is to release FIFA 20 TOTW 27 based on the fixtures that will be taking place this weekend.
The vast majority of European leagues have postponed fixtures, with the Bundesliga the main one letting matches carry on.
So FIFA 20 TOTW 27 should feature plenty of players from Germany’s top flight.
Announcing the Team of the Week plans the @EAFIFADirect Twitter posted: “We are continuing to monitor the ongoing worldwide situation, however, we are currently planning to proceed with TOTW 27 based on the fixtures taking place this weekend.

The news comes after FIFA 20 TOTW 26 earlier this week suffered a delayed release.
FIFA TOTW 26 was expected to get announced at 3pm UK time on Wednesday followed by a release at 6pm GMT.
However due to an “unexpected issue” the announcement of the latest FIFA 20 Team of the Week squad and subsequent release of the FUT cards was delayed.
The FIFA 20 TOTW 26 cards were officially confirmed as being released in FUT Ultimate Team just before 11pm GMT by the EA Sports FIFA Twitter.
They posted: “It’s finally here! #TOTW 26 is now available in packs.
“Thank you for your patience. #FUT20”.
