What is the next FIFA 22 promo: event calendar & special squads in Ultimate Team this year
FIFA 22 is well into its lifecycle, and the special cards just keep on coming. We’ve put together the confirmed & expected dates for all of Ultimate Team’s biggest spectacles, from Ones to Watch and Team of the Year, to Team of the Season, Future Stars, and plenty more.
One thing’s for sure in FIFA: there’s always another promo.
EA SPORTS has ramped up their event schedule in a big way the past few FIFA cycles, blasting out special cards and promo packs basically every other week.
The deluge of upgraded stars and must-collect FUT cards hit a fever pitch in FIFA 21, and FIFA 22 has lived up to expectations and then some.
From Team of the Year and FUTMAS, to Summer Heat, FUT Birthday, and more, here’s when we’ll see all of Ultimate Team’s iconic promos in FIFA 22.
Following the release of the FIFA 22 Pre-Season event, there will be no more new promos in this year’s game. FIFA 23 is set to arrive on September 30, so EA are beginning to wind down support as they prepare for the Ultimate Team new season to kick-off
This means the next promo will be FIFA 23 Ones to Watch, celebrating the biggest transfers of the summer by handing out upgradeable special cards. Unfortunately, though, FIFA 22 players will have to purchase the new game to join in on the action.
EA SPORTS never confirm an exact schedule of which promos will feature and when, but there are plenty of staples that return year upon year that are almost guaranteed to show up.
Iconic FUT events like Team of the Year, Road to the Final, Headliners, FUTMAS (now dubbed “Winter Wildcards”), Future Stars, and more are sure to arrive in FIFA 22 around the same time as usual, loaded with stunning special cards.
