Each week in FIFA 20, players grind through 30 matches in order to get the highest rank possible in the weekend league. If you achieve more than six wins, you’ll have at least one red player pick waiting for you – but this wasn’t the case this week. A new FIFA 20 FUT Champions rewards glitch has emerged, restricting players from earning their deserved rewards.
FUT 20 Champs Player Picks Broken Bug – TOTW 16
Red picks are essentially a selection of inform players from the latest Team of the Week. However, an in-game bug is causing the normal gold version of the players to pop-up instead of informs. This issue is affecting those who rank higher more, as you will usually receive more red players picks when ranking higher.
EA Sports has received backlash regarding this issue, so they have thankfully provided an update on the matter. In a recent tweet, EA’s help twitter announced they are working on a resolution for this FUT Champions rewards bug.

The team is aware of the issue impacting Weekend League rewards and is working on a resolution. Updates to come later today when info is available.
They have since followed up on the matter, temporarily disabling player picks while they work on an issue. There’s no need to worry, however, as you will still receive your red player picks once the issue has been fixed.
