Which FUT promo is next 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.
