Dates

The FUT 22 Pre-Season promotion will land in FIFA 21's Ultimate Team at 6pm BST on Friday, August 27th.

There has been no official confirmation as to how long the event will run for, though we expect it to be a two week long promotion, which would see it end on Friday, September 11th.

What is FUT 22 Pre Season?

The promotion is one that we haven't seen within FIFA before, and EA Sports have remained coy on what we can expect.

One thing that is for sure, there will be some form of FIFA 22 related content within the promotion, an opportunity to start unlocking some FUT 22 content perhaps?

It's highly unlikely that EA will be offering out any significant packs or coin rewards prior to the full launch of FIFA 22, although we could see some lower value player packs, consumable packs and maybe even some coin boost bonuses up for grabs.

Every little helps as the quest for Ultimate Team glory restarts ahead of FIFA 22.

FIFA 21 Content

Expect to see plenty more highly rated special cards land in FIFA 21, with transfered players likely to be high on the list of importance in the SBC market.

We've already seen the likes of Lionel Messi & Memphis Depay handed transferred cards during the FUTTIES campaign, with Manchester United newbie Raphael Varane also rumoured to be landing soon.

With six days left in the transfer window it is likely we will see more significant action across the globe, with those moves expected to be transferred across to FIFA Ultimate Team too.

FUT 22 Companion App

Could we see the launch of the FUT 22 Companion App to tie in with the release of the Pre-Season promotion?

The FIFA 21 Companion App landed on September 30th last year, roughly a month ahead of the main release of the game, which came on Friday, October 6th.

With this in mind it is unlikely that we will see the Companion App just yet, but don't be suprised if EA opt to move the launch forward to tie in with the FIFA 22 centered promotion.
