FIFA 23 Road to the Knockout cards upgrades explained

Road to the Knockout cards have two chances to be upgraded.

First introduced in FIFA 22, RTTKs are live items that can be updated based on the real-life outcomes of the Champions League, Europa League, and Europa Conference League group stages.

If the event follows the same format as last year, each player included in the promo will have two opportunities to receive a separate +1 upgrade to their card.

These boosts will occur if their club:

  • Wins two out of the last three group games
  • Qualifies for the knockout stages of their respective tournament

Upgrades are dished out purely based on how the club performs, so even if the player on the card doesn’t see a minute of pitch time, they will still go up in rating if the criteria are met.
