The FUT promo calendar might have been left with a glaring hole in it for March, but new FIFA 22 leaks have revealed FUT Birthday is next in line – with some big changes in order.

In 2021, the event to commemorate FUT Birthday arrived at the end of March. Yet, early into the month of 2022, there are a series of clear signs that it could come earlier this time.

Here’s everything we know so far about FUT Birthday 2022.

FUT Birthday is always a popular moment for players.

FUT Birthday is the celebration of the day Ultimate Team was first started, which usually lands on the last Friday of March. However, all of the leaks appear to be pointing towards a Friday, March 4 start this time around.

The popular online card trading game was first announced in 2009 and later released with FIFA 10, meaning this year will be its 12th year of existence.

What to expect

According to leaks from FUT Sheriff, a reliable source in the FIFA community, the promo will change the skill star rating and weak foot of players picked to be included. For example, a player with a poor weak foot in-game may be upgraded with a boosted card.

This has been a tradition for FUT Birthday, so players shouldn’t be surprised to see the news.

However, the Token System – which allows players to swap them for FUT items in SBCs – will also be featured, according to Sheriff.

What that looks like, at the time of writing, remains to be seen. But it would be a big shift away from how EA usually rolls out content for this event.

There will be a whole host of Squad Building Challenges and Objectives content throughout the week, with some being leaked ahead of time.

Team 1

As is the case with many of FIFA 22’s promos, this campaign is rumored to consist of two teams released a full week apart. The first batch of cards has already started to surface on social media.

The first confirmed card and upgrade details are already in the bag though as Fut Sheriff revealed a hot new promo card for Real Madrid midfield maestro Toni Kroos. The German prince of passing is set for a huge boost that will see his weak foot and skill moves be increased to 5*/5*.

More are sure to leaked in the next few days as well.
