Future Stars have arrived and are now LIVE - Team 2 arrives TODAY!
The Future Stars promo is an incredibly inventive one, bringing youngsters who would never feature in the meta to the top of the food chain, by giving them massive boosts that reflect their potential (should they reach it).
Future Stars has been in FUT since FIFA 19 when it was introduced and focuses on younger hot prospects that haven’t yet established themselves as stars on the world stage.
Alongside exciting SBC, Objective and pack based content, there's a lot to look forward to!
Here's what you need to know about Future Stars in FIFA 21.

What Are Future Stars?
The Future Stars Promo is an awesome event that takes a look into the future, with massively boosted cards given to some of the best young talent in the world of football currently.
With huge boosts to card stats and overall ratings, as well as skill moves and weak foot in a number of circumstances, Future Stars cards reflect how some players may look in the future should they realise their potential and reach top form in their professional careers.
Given that these cards feature massive boosts to previously underused players, Future Stars is a real fan favourite that brings a whole host of new items into the limelight, shaking up the FUT meta in an exciting way!
Future Stars Release Date
This year in FUT 21, Future Stars kicks off on Friday, February 5th, being the first promotion released after Team of the Year.
Last year in FUT 20, Future Stars dropped on January 31st, while in FIFA 19 they arrived on January 18th, so we’d expect somewhat of a similar release date in January this season.
Future Stars Card Design
In contrast to last year's vibrant pink design, EA has opted for a more retro black and multi-coloured design.
Here are our predictions for Team 1 of Future Stars.
Future Stars Squad
Throughout the course of the Future Stars promo, expect 2 teams of players to be released, each filled with awesome new cards, released into packs for a week-long period.
Last year in FUT 20 we saw a total of 28 players released into packs across the 2 week event, including a 92 Haland, 92 Lautaro Martinez and a 91 Valverde, with 2 squads of 14 released, with more players released into SBCs and Objectives.

Future Stars Upgradeable Objectives
One of the great new features to Future Stars last year in FUT 20 was the Future Stars Academy Objectives, that allowed players to ‘rise through the ranks’ with various Future Stars items, using higher rated versions as they completed objectives as they went.
In the example below, players started off with 77 rated Zaniolo, obtained by completing a simple objective. To obtain the higher-rated 81 version, players had to complete objectives with the 77 rated version (score 2 goals, get 2 assists etc). After completing all the objectives in the group, players were rewarded with the highest rated Objective card as the overall group reward.
Last year, we had 4 Future Stars Academy objectives, featuring Zaniolo, Dan James, Osimhen and Odegaard.
Other Expected Future Stars Content
Being a relatively heavy promotion driven towards pack sales, the Future Stars squads are the main attractions, however, we can still expect some other content, including:
- Future Stars & Other Player SBCs
- Upgrade & Pack SBCs
- Promo Packs
Future Stars & Other Player SBCs
Player SBCs will be another staple of the promotion to compliment the squad of players already in packs. Last year we saw a number of Future Stars SBCs released, including Moise Kean, Weston McKennie, Takefusa Kubo, Kieran Tierney and Nicolo Barella.
We also had other Player Moments released, including Player Moments Alphonso Davies, Dayot Upamecano and Arthur.
Upgrade & Pack SBCs
Accompanying the Player SBCs released throughout Future Stars, be on the lookout for other pack SBCs, as well as Upgrade SBCs. Last year in Future Stars we had the 82-88, 80+, 83+ and Double 81+ Upgrade SBCs released throughout Future Stars. We also had a total of 8 Future Stars Challenge SBCs released for pack rewards.
Promo Packs will also be a staple of the event, with lightning rounds at peak times around the release of the Future Stars squads, and daily store refreshes of high value packs.
