It's time for another FIFA promotion to take centre stage, and it's a yearly favourite in the form of the FUT Birthday promo.
FIFA 22 marks the 13th anniversary of the release of FIFA Ultimate Team, and it has been celebrated with the release of a very special promotion, which features some huge upgrades, not only to the in-game statistics of the player involved but also to their weak foot and/or skill moves.
Team 1 features the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez and Toni Kroos, and is available in packs right now. Further cards will arrive via the Squad Building Challenge and Seasonal Objectives markets over the course of the week, so be sure to check back each evening for news on that front.
