FUT Player Days is returning as a promo in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team. Here’s what we’re going to see as things begin to go live.

FIFA 21, like FIFA 20 before it, has used a number of classic promos. We’ve had Future Stars, Team of the Year, and Ones to Watch, but EA have changed things up as well. We’ve had new promos like What If, Freeze, and Rulebreakers in the place of FUTMas and Halloween.

As we’ve turned a new leaf and moved into the new year, many fans have been asking for Winter Refresh and January Ones to Watch.

They haven’t happened, but it was finally confirmed that FUT Player Days would be returning for a second round after FUT Birthday, and it seems thing have started right on schedule.

In the past, FUT Player Days have given us some of the best cards in the game.

FIFA 21 FUT Player Days release date & time

FUT Player Days is all about the fans baby – just as the name suggests. New packs have been released, there’s an abundance of new content, along with plenty of free packs – as well as discounts.

The first Player Days event has already come and gone, starting on March 8, and on April 9, EA Sports announced it was officially back

Additionally, for the second run of the event we’re getting a very, very nice-looking “FUT Encore” squad available for a limited time, along with themed objectives, pack offers, and more.

FUT 21 Player Days players

As we’ve mentioned, the best TOTW cards return in the player days promos, and  things are once again shaping up to be a pretty nice set of re-releases.

The list includes a 95-rated Messi, a 92-overall Hazard, and a 92-rated Kimmich. These make up a very nice set of cards, even if they’re the only 10 or so that are released.

FUT 21 Player Days pack offers & rewards

On top of the bonuses and pack offers, we could also see the arrival of new ICON swaps. Again, they were a part of last year’s promo, and it makes sense to bring them back this year – fans love them, after all.

In terms of the pack offers, last year had Buy One Get One Free on packs in a lightning round. It makes sense to do something similar again, but, it’s all on EA and what they choose to do.

FUT 21 Player Days SBCs & objectives

Like every promo, the Player Days should have plenty of new Objectives and SBCs to complete.

These SBCs could be ICON swaps, as we’ve noted, or they could be focused on current cards. We won’t know until they’re out. However, once they are released, you’ll be able to find solutions on our FIFA page.
