The FIFA 22 Black Friday event has started in Ultimate Team, featuring FUT coin discounts, SBCs, Best of TOTW packs, Club Signature cards, and plenty more.
Every year, EA SPORTS tests their FIFA player base’s wallets with the Black Friday promo, a pack-focused event that ships rare bundles, SBCs, re-releases, and objectives into the game.
This year is expected to be no different; come late November, FIFA Ultimate Team will be drowning in in-game specials and packs, as well as the return of all the very best Team of the Week players from the first dozen in-form lineups. Black Friday — and the bookend Cyber Monday — is FUT’s first real market crash.
Here’s everything you need to know about the pack-heavy Black Friday promo, including when it starts, new Club Signatures cards, and more.
When does FIFA 22 Black Friday start?
This year, Black Friday falls on Friday, November 26, and FIFA 22 Ultimate Team players can start digging into the bargains already.
The lighting rounds, special FUT packs, player SBCs, and general Black Friday festivities should start up around 6 pm GMT and run for four days.
What is Black Friday in FIFA 22?
Black Friday is one of the biggest Ultimate Team promos on every FIFA calendar, though players don’t celebrate the sales day because of player releases.
Instead, it’s because of the special Squad Building Challenges (SBCs), daily and weekly objectives, and the monster pile of special FUT packs that EA SPORTS ships out across the weekend of spending frenzy.
In years past, the FIFA publishers have absolutely flooded the market with 50k, 100k, and even ultra-rare 125k packs, offering up some of the game’s richest cards, most powerful players, and more. Wily FUT fanatics will save up their FIFA points, ready for the biggest sales of the game’s twelve-month cycle.
And, if that hasn’t whet your appetite, EA SPORTS has also released “Best of TOTWs” packs, re-releasing the best in-form cards from FIFA 22’s first dozen weeks.
Best of TOTWs Team 1 revealed
EA SPORTS released the first Best of TOTWs Team 1 on Black Friday. The super-boosted cards were available in packs.
Surprisingly enough, the FUT promo didn’t just re-release the best In-Form cards. Instead, EA seemed to have hand-selected the boosted cards, leaving out major stars like Neymar, Marquinhos, Mane, and Kimmich.
Here was the Starting XI for Best of TOTW Team 1:
- Kylian Mbappe (PSG)
- Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
- Heung-Min Son (Spurs)
- Luis Suarez (Atletico Madrid)
- Leon Goretzka (Bayern Munich)
- Phil Foden (Man City)
- Jesus Navas (Sevilla)
- Roberto Firmino (Liverpool)
- Dayot Upamecano (Bayern Munich)
- Theo Hernandez (AC Milan)
- Vinicius Junior (Real Madrid)

Objectives, SBCs, and new rewards
According to EA’s official site, players can expect new week-long objectives, including a series of Flash SBCs that players won’t want to miss – although we don’t yet know what those will entail.
We do know that if players complete Black Friday Daily SBCs for four days in a row, they’ll “earn the group reward for the corresponding Black Friday Objective”.
Black Friday Record Breakers?
Last year, EA SPORTS ramped up the Black Friday excitement with a five-player release — nearly a dozen record-breaker cards celebrating major player milestones and achievements in the real world of the footballing leagues.
These cards included:
- Kylian Mbappe (91)
- David Silva (89)
- Jadon Sancho (88)
- Radamel Falcao (87)
- Oscar (86)
Dexerto has not yet heard confirmation regarding the return of these Black Friday Record Breakers, though EA may want to repeat the promo for added hype.
And there you have it: all the early FIFA 22 Black Friday details.
