It has a real holiday spirit about it, rewarding players for their unwavering loyalty as well as giving them the cards they desire.
It's a real opportunity for players who may not get a special card anytime soon to grab one.

FREEZE Promo? - 9th December
A new promo has been spotted on FUT called 'Freeze'. It's unknown what this is about or what it will include, but it could replace FUTMAS.
Read all about it here.
FUTMAS Release Date
FUTMAS should start on Friday 11th December, lasting for around 2 weeks in the build-up to Christmas.
Last year, we saw FUTMAS released on Friday December 13th, the 2nd Friday of the month, so a release around the 11th December 2021 would coincide with the typical release schedule.
What Is FUTMAS?
In short, FUTMAS is a promotion that is themed heavily around special themed FUTMAS Player SBCs that are released for 24 hour periods every day for around 2 weeks, featuring a number of desirable cards.
The promotion typically lasts for around 2 weeks just before Christmas, and sees as many as 24 Player SBCs released throughout the event, with 2 released every day for 24 hours, meaning players have to think fast and act quickly to decide whether to complete an SBC or to let it pass.
We could potentially receive 24 player SBCs over the FUTMAS period - here are our predictions:
- 85 Thorgan Hazard
- 84 Richarlison
- 85 Moussa Dembele
- 84 Gervinho
- 85 Diego Carlos
- 84 Nick Pope
- 85 Aaron Wan-Bissaka
- 85 Gelson Martins
- 84 Ruben Dias
- 84 Christian Gunter
- 84 Jose Luis Morales Nogales
- 87 Roberto Insigne
- 86 Federico Valverde
- 85 Lucas Moura
- 89 Paulo Dybala
- 85 Francis Coquelin
- 86 Marcelo Brozovic
- 84 Christian Pulisic
- 84 Santiago Arias
- 86 Anthony Martial
- 86 Raul Jimenez
- 84 Sergino Dest
- 85 Bernardeschi
- 86 David Alaba
FUTMAS can be a great time to get some fantastic cards, but also a strain on the coin purse.

FUTMAS Player SBCs
The biggest draw of the FUTMAS Event are without doubt the recurring Player SBCs that are released every day of the promo.
2 FUTMAS Themed SBCs will be released every day during the event for 24 hours, meaning you’ll have to think fast as to whether you want to complete an SBC, or let it pass.
In recent years, the themes of FUTMAS SBCs have been surrounding:
- Nation Rankings
- Team Positions in the season prior, so for this year, FUTMAS will be themed around league finishes from the 2019/20 campaign.
For example, on Day 1 of FUTMAS in FIFA 20, we had an SBC for a player from a team that finished 12th in the league in the season prior, and a Belgian, being ranked the best nation at the time (1st). On Day 2 of FUTMAS, we had an SBC for a player from a team that finished 11th, and a player from the nation ranked 2nd at the time, and so on.

FUTMAS Card Design
While the official FUTMAS card design is still to be released, we’ve discovered some very nice concepts released throughout the community. DaveDesiigns’ FUTMAS concept looks like an insane card, and would add some serious value to the FUTMAS Player SBCs.
Other FUTMAS Expected Content
Aside from the FUTMAS Player SBC content, there’s still plenty to expect from this festive promo
- Team of the Year Nominees
- FUTMAS Objectives
- Upgrade SBCs
- FUTMAS Challenge SBCs
Team of the Year Nominees
Last year, for the first time in FUT, we saw TOTY Nominees released during the FUTMAS event as voting for the TOTY commenced.
This saw 55 players released with special TOTY nominee cards with a +1 boost on their base items, bringing the hype for TOTY throughout December.
Expect objectives to feature yet again in the FUTMAS promotion in FUT 21, with FUTMAS players being featured for completing gameplay objectives, likely in the Live FUT Friendlies tabs. Last year we saw the likes of Gbamin, Roussillon and Boulaya receiving FUTMAS cards in objectives, so it’ll be interesting to see who we get this year.
Last year during FUTMAS we saw both an 82-88 and 83+ SBC released throughout the event, allowing players to grind towards some cards to stock clubs for completing all the FUTMAS Player SBCs that were released. We expect similar SBCs to be released this year to stock those clubs with SBC fodder.
FUTMAS Challenge SBCs
As is the way with a big promotion, expect to see some FUTMAS Challenge SBCs for general pack rewards released throughout the event, themed around players, teams or nations that have been popular in previous years.
