The first squad for the classic Ultimate Team promo, FUTTIES, has finally been confirmed for FIFA 21, and here’s what’s included and what you can expect going forward.
For the past few years in Ultimate Team, the FUTTIES promo has signaled the end of new promos from EA SPORTS as they ramp up work on the next installment of FIFA.
That changed last year, though, with promos like Team of the Season needing to be pushed back and the release of the brand-new Pre-Season promo which allowed players to earn rewards for FIFA 21 in FIFA 20.
Now, FUTTIES are back in their usual spot at the end of the FIFA 21 promo calendar, and it seems EA does want to send this year off with a bit of a bang, bringing back some of the best cards of the last few months.
FUTTIES ‘Best Of’ Batch 1
EA Sports rolled out the first squad of FUTTIES cards along with the start of the event on Friday, July 16, and as we thought they do indeed contain some of the best cards of note from the last few months of Ultimate Team. The first Batch is as follows:
- Kevin De Bruyne — 96
- Karim Benzema — 95
- Mohamed Salah — 94
- Sadio Mane — 92
- Raheem Sterling — 92
- N’Golo Kante — 91
- Giovanni Reyna — 91
- Kylian Mbappe — 91
- Harry Kane — 91
- Ciro Immobile — 91
- Luis Suarez — 90
How to vote in FIFA 21 FUTTIES promo
Outside of the returning cards, FUTTIES brings community involvement too in the form of votes. In the past, players have been given three options to choose from in different categories, and whichever card is picked the most gets a boost.
These boosted cards have then gone on to be available in SBCs (Squad Building Challenges) and available to all players. They’ve been a staple of the promo, so there shouldn’t be any drastic changes this time around either and the usual steps should apply.
- Load up FIFA 21 Ultimate Team
- Wait for the FUTTIES news pop up to load
- Choose a card to give your vote to
- Wait and see if your chosen card wins
FIFA 21 FUTTIES leaks
In terms of leaks for the FUTTIES promo, there hasn’t been anything crazy just yet, but one leak has claimed that Rangers full-back James Tavernier will be an objectives card in the promo.

Players have come up with their own theories about ‘Best Of’ cards going into packs and potential lightning rounds as a result, but there’s nothing been confirmed or leaked on that front yet.
Tavernier Futties will come as obj. 🥰👀🔥

While some FIFA fans have suggested that FUTTIES is the final big promo of the year, there’s no guarantee of that. As previously mentioned, EA dropped a Pre-Season promo last year, so we could see that return.
