- More leaks
Team 1 was unveiled on March 26 featuring Liverpool’s Thiago Alcantara, Real Madrid’s Ferland Mendy, and more.
Since that time, a number of in-game Objectives have been released including a 90-rated unlockable Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and an SBC for a 90-rated Lucas Podolski. After that, a Mesut Ozil SBC and Rodrigo Palacio SBC were also released.
Following the jam-packed weekend of content, all eyes turn to the developers for the next batch. We were expecting pretty much more of the same, but there are some notable differences from last year’s content that are worth noting. So, let’s run through everything we know so far.
FIFA 21 FUT Birthday Team 2 start time
Team 2 is set to release at 6pm (GMT). That means 10am (PT), 12pm (CT), 1pm (EST), and 3am (AES).

Some of these leaked SBCs have since been added to the game.
Lightning rounds are big discounts on the biggest packs in Ultimate Team. While it’s unclear as to whether or not FUT Birthday will include this offer, it’s certainly not out of the question.
At the time of writing, there has been no indication that EA SPORTS will be adding special FUT Birthday packs to the store. However, that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to pack the players included in the promo through other means. Completing SBCs and opening as many packs without spending real cash is always a good tip. Or, alternatively, you may opt to invest in some FIFA Points.
If any more information is to be unveiled as the promo starts up, we will update this article as and when.
