Cards from EA SPORTS FC Birthday promo

EA Sports FC will be celebrating the annual birthday promo in Ultimate Team, and it’s all getting underway soon. Here’s what you need to know about Ultimate Birthday in EA Sports FC 24. 

Over the last few years, EA Sports has released a number of Ultimate Team promos that you’re able to pen into your calendar without fear of them not being used or canceled at the last moment. 

Aside from the launch promos, these come in the new year. January always brings the start of Team of the Year, and then after that, it’s a short wait until March as that marks the start of the birthday celebrations. 

In years gone by, FUT Birthday has given us some of the most unique cards in Ultimate Team history – no one is forgetting the Nick Pope card anytime soon. And we’re finally at that point with EA Sports FC
