Almost two weeks ago we announced that we would donate all proceeds from the sale of FUT packs on Saturday, March 26th. You took up the call and showed up in force. Today we’re proud to announce that EA will be donating $500,000 to the Red Cross for the relief efforts in Japan. Thank you all! You can hear more about the fundraising effort in the FUT podcast or you can read about it HERE.
Paul and Christophe join us once more from the bowels of FIFA Ultimate Team headquarters to bring us the Team of the Week and details of this week's Happy Hour. Plus they offer up a massive thank you to FUT players for helping us raise $500,000 for victims of the earthquake in Japan - a truly massive result.
Team of the Week (TOTW)
After time off for internationals club football returns and so does the Team of the Week. It seems like a lot of goals were scored with Rooney, Reyna and Cavani scoring hat tricks while Soldado and Kabba scored 4 each! In case you didn’t notice Kabba is a Bronze player, a rare breed in TOTW.
