FIFA 21: Rulebreakers Event Explained - What Is Rulebreakers?

FIFA 21's next promotional event is called 'Rulebreakers'.

The new event has thrown a spanner in the otherwise predictable content calendar that was expected from EA Sports and their Ultimate Team mode.

As we get closer to Halloween, titles are celebrating this fascinating holiday in their own way.


FUT likes to get in on the act by promoting special boosted cards that wouldn't otherwise be obtainable through the year.

So when is Rulebreakers coming to FIFA 21? Here's what we know.

What Is Rulebreakers In FIFA 21?

Rulebreakers will arrive in FUT 21 on the 23rd October 2020.

This event is expected to last for two weeks, as all promotional events typically do.

Rulebreakers is a new promotional event that is replacing the Ultimate Scream event, focusing on a number of fan favourite cards and swapping stats around.


These cards will receive boosted key stats to a level that wouldn’t be usually seen through regular performance-based upgrades.

With an event like this taking place at Halloween every year, this promo delivers tonnes of new, high-level players into the FUT meta early on, and is, without doubt, a big promotion that you’ll have to keep your eyes on.

Over the course of the promotion, expect tonnes of content to be delivered, including:

  • 2 Rulebreakers Teams
  • Rulebreakers Player SBCs
  • Rulebreakers Objectives
  • Halloween Themed Puzzle SBCs
  • Promo Packs

Week 1 should feature Rulebreakers Team 1, as well as additional content such as SBCs and Objectives.

The following week will feature a very similar pattern, consisting of Rulebreakers Team 2, as well as additional content such as SBCs and Objectives.

Until EA confirm all of the details, nothing is for certain however, this is purely speculative at this point.
