Team 1 is here, and it is STACKED!

92-rated Thiago leads the way in terms of ratings, though that 91-rated CAM Sane is sure to warrant a huge transfer fee.

What Is It?

To celebrate the creation of the game mode's creation, EA put on a special and imaginative promo.

The Promo aims to give back to players with extra bonuses, rewards and special player items.

These feature game-breaking boosts, position changes and alterations to a player's skill moves and weak foot.

Release Date

FUT Birthday will release on the 26th March 2021 and will last for two weeks.

This event will end on the 9th April 2021.

What Time Does FUT Birthday Start?

FIFA 21's FUT Birthday will start at 6pm GMT.

FUT Birthday Squads

The main selling points of the FUT Birthday events in previous years have been the FUT Birthday squads, which should feature two teams full of stars that add to the pool of meta players in FIFA Ultimate Team.

Last year, FUT Birthday focused on popular players, however, added boosted Skill Move and Weak Foot players into the mix, with 5* boosts and occasionally double boosts granted to popular cards within FUT.

For example, last year we saw the likes of a 5* Skill, 5* Weak Foot Mbappe, as well as a 5* 5* Saint-Maximin, which proved to be some of the best cards in the game even in late March, proving the potential of the cards released during FUT Birthday!

Expected FUT Birthday Content

FUT Birthday in previous years has been an event that is heavily centred around pack sales, so don’t be too surprised if this is a pretty pack heavy event. Nevertheless, we can expect a fair bit of non-pack content, including:

  • Party Bag SBCs
  • FUT Birthday & Flashback Player SBCs
  • Upgrade & Pack SBCs
  • FUT Birthday Objectives
  • Extra Weekend League Player Picks
  • Engagement Rewards
  • Promo Packs

Other SBC Content

We're also expecting the following content at some point.

Party Bag SBCs

Party Bag SBCs have featured in FUT in recent months, and we're expecting to see more arrive in the promotion which granted them their debut back in FUT 20.

FUT Birthday, Player Moments & Flashback Player SBCs

In FUT 20, we saw a whole host of FUT Birthday (Manolas, Pope, Rodrigo, Sarr, Bergwijn, Amavi and Ozil), Player Moments (Ramsey) and Flashback (Ogbonna, Taarabt, Biabiany and Hulk) Player SBCs, celebrating some fan favourite players in previous FIFAs. These should easily return this year in FUT 21.

Upgrade & Pack SBCs

Advertisement

Definitely expect upgrades to return for FUT Birthday in FUT 21, with things like the 2x81+, 82-88, 83+ and 80+ Player Picks returning. 

Alongside this, in previous years we’ve had daily FUT Birthday themed SBCs around players that were popular in previous FIFAs, ranging from FUT 09 all the way through to FUT 19. We expect more of the same this year!

Rewards

Extra WL Player Picks

Another addition into objectives, last year during FUT Birthday we had extra red player picks available as an extra incentive to engage with FUT Champs.

With 3 extra picks up for grabs, 1 each for 10, 18 and 24 wins, this offered a chance at all players up until TOTW 29, meaning some top-level players were potentially up for grabs.

Engagement Rewards

Throughout FUT 20’s FUT Birthday, every day new objectives were released that allowed players to work towards some engagement themed rewards, with greater offers available for continued engagement throughout the event.

Packs

Promo Packs will also be a staple of the event, with lightning rounds at peak times around the release of the FUT Birthday squads, and daily store refreshes of high value packs.
