FIFA 22 FUT Captains upgrades explained

Unlike recent promos like Fantasy FUT or Road to the Final, FIFA 22 FUT Captains are not live cards that can be upgraded as the year goes on. Instead, each featured player receives a huge one-off boost to their stats that will remain in place permanently.

The FUT Captains event concentrates on two types of players. Firstly, it hands out special cards to the very best leaders in the game, who are well known for wearing the armband for their respective clubs.

Secondly, it concentrates on bringing the FUT Heroes that were new to FIFA 22 more in line with the current meta. These fan favorites were a welcome addition this year, but have fallen further behind with each passing promo, so FUT Captains inflates their stats to make them more viable.
