FIFA 22 Ones to Watch (OTW) are another special type of card in Ultimate Team with which to help your superstar squad ascend to glory. Unlike FIFA 22 ICONs or Hero cards, Ones to Watch are players whose stats change depending on their performance in the real-life season. In other words you could get a great card, one that gets even better with time.

FIFA 22 OTW Team 1 is here, and we also know some other confirmed names to come. So, here's everything you need to know about Ones to Watch.

FIFA 22 Ones to Watch: What you need to know

Just in case you've been away from FUT for a while, Ones to Watch cards aren't gold, silver, or bronze, but 'live' in the sense that their stats can improve the better they perform at the new club at which they've recently arrived, with their base stats at least the same as the player's highest In-Form. If you bought the Ultimate Edition you'll get a OTW card free, but it'll be untradeable so you can't make any coins on it.

Anyway, here are the confirmed Ones to Watch cards (some of whom are in Team 1 (above):

In terms of what's coming next, here are a few players that could be in Team 2, according to leaks from FUTZone. Also subject to change, naturally.

It's also worth mentioning that, while Liverpool's Xherdan Shaqiri was available as an SBC Ones to Watch before the game's main release, Camavinga from Real Madrid will be available via a squad building challenge in future.
