FIFA 22 is finally here, and with it comes promotions, events, and a slew of special cards – we’ve rounded up the confirmed and leaked dates for all of Ultimate Team’s, Ones to Watch’s and Team of the biggest shows. Year, to Team of the Season, FUTMAS, rating refresh and more.
One thing is certain in FIFA: there is always another promo.
EA SPORTS has dramatically increased its event calendar in recent FIFA cycles, releasing special cards and promotional packs virtually every two weeks.
The deluge of upgraded stars and collectible FUT cards has come to a head in FIFA 21, and Dexerto expects the same (and maybe more) as EA rolls out all of FIFA 22’s special moments over the course of of the next twelve months.
From Team of the Year to FUTMAS, Summer Heat, FUT Birthday and more, here’s when we’ll see all of Ultimate Team’s iconic promotions in FIFA 22.
Which FUT promo is next in FIFA 22?
The next promotion of FIFA 22 will be the “Headliners” event, which will take place in the new year.
Beyond that, Dexerto suspects EA SPORTS may be able to bring in a Champions League team from the group stage, but with European games fading into the rearview mirror, that promotion seems less and less likely every day.
Instead, the Team of the Year comes next. The huge, loaded promo of 99 is expected to arrive on schedule at the end of the first month of 2022, with packs and SBCs galore.
