The winter months are a busy time for FIFA fans, as EA cranks up the pace with which new promos drop in Ultimate Team. FIFA 22 looks set to be no different, Team of the Group Stage has been and gone, while the annual Team of the Year looms on the horizon.

This was one of last year’s best events, so here’s what fans can look forward to in this year’s FUT Versus promo.
