One of the most appealing parts of FIFA 22 Ultimate Team is the constant rollout of fresh promotions and special cards.

Fans have already seen Ones to Watch and Road to the Knockouts added to the mode, in addition to FUT Heroes and ICONs in packs all year.

With so much content still to come, we’ve put together an in-depth calendar and description of every promotion and special card set to hit FIFA 22.

EA likes to keep their cards close to their chest when it comes to promos to keep things surprising at every turn.

That being said, certain special cards have become FUT staples, and return to the mode at a similar time every year.

So while there’s no official schedule as of yet, we can look to previous years to come up with a detailed calendar of promotions.

Here is every promo we’re expecting to see in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team throughout the year.

Team of the Week

Team of the Week 1 in FIFA 22

Team of the Week cards have been a staple of Ultimate Team for many years, providing a steady stream of fresh cards based on real-world performances.

Every Wednesday, the best performers from the latest round of domestic or international fixtures are given an upgrade to replace their normal card in packs for that week.

FUT Heroes

FUT Heroes in FIFA 22

FUT Heroes are the first new type of card in FIFA 22, giving a nod to some of the greatest cult figures in world football.

These new cards highlight players who maybe didn’t quite go down in the history of the sport, but made their mark at a specific club.

Not only do some of them have eye-watering stats, but they also get strong chemistry links to their respective leagues.

Ones to Watch

Ones to Watch Team 2 FIFA 22

EA’s go-to for kicking off a new season, Ones to Watch cards are dynamic items that could be upgraded consistently throughout the year.

These special cards are awarded to players who have been part of a high-profile move in the latest transfer window.

OTWs automatically boost themselves to match the highest-rated TOTW that player has earned and stay there until their next in-form.

Flashbacks

FIFA 22 Flashback Kante

Returning once again in FIFA 22 are Flashback cards, sending players on a journey back through FUT history.

These special cards celebrate a player’s previous achievements and a throwback to past success.

So far we’ve had Kante for his title-winning season with Leicester, Umtiti for his OTW in FIFA 17, and Pedro for his debut Premier League campaign.

Road to the Knockouts

Road to the Knockouts Team 1

Road to the Knockouts is another new promotion for FIFA 22, celebrating the three European competitions clubs can compete during the 2021/22 season – the Champions League, Europa League, and Europa Conference League.

Chosen players whose teams win three out of their last four group stage games, or qualify the knockout stages, are given permanent boosts to their cards.

Record-breakers

Record-breakers, much as the name suggests, are awarded to players who have entered the record books over the last year.

For example, in FIFA 22, expect the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo to be included for setting the international goal record.

These cards tend to be a one-off upgrade but significantly boost a players’ stats.

Rulebreakers

FIFA 22 Rulebreakers

FIFA traditionally gets a promotion every Halloween. What started as Ultimate Scream changed into Rulebreakers with FIFA 21.

These cards give big boosts to players, but also fundamentally alter the way they player by swapping around their stats.

Sluggish strikers may lose some finishing ability in favor of pace, while attacking full-backs may become solid defenders.

Adidas 99

Adidas 99 is another brand new promotion for FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, backed by the real-world sportswear brand.

These special cards are selected by EA, with one stat being chosen for regular upgrades throughout the year at times decided by the developer.

This stat will keep receiving boosts until it reaches the maximum of 99 and becomes one of the game’s top cards.

Team of the Group Stage

Team of the Group stage in FIFA 21

While Road to the Knockouts rewards team performance, the Team of the Group stage is all about individual brilliance.

These are one-off special cards given to the top performers across every European tournaments group stage, whether it be a prolific goalscorer or anchor at the back.

The beauty of TOTGS is that the player’s team doesn’t even have to qualify for the knockouts to be recognized.

FUTMAS / Freeze

Freeze cards in FIFA 21

Christmas is always kind to Ultimate Team players thanks to the yearly FUTMAS (or Freeze) promo that EA rolls out.

Here, fans are treated to a steady rollout of special cards and SBCs to celebrate the festivities, each and every day.

Road to the Final

FIFA 21 Road to the Final Team 1

Similar to Road to the Knockouts, RTTF cards constantly upgrade based on a player’s team’s performance in Europe.

This time, upgrades are awarded for individual wins in two-legged knockout matches, as well as progressing to the next round.

Road to the Final players can grow into some of the game’s cards if their team goes all the way.

Headliners

FIFA 21 Headliners cards

Headliners is a promotion that celebrates the best players of the season so far and gives them an extremely desirable card.

These dynamic items always stay one rating higher than a player’s highest-rated Team of the Week, meaning they can continue to grow throughout the year.

Team of the Year

FIFA 21 Team of the Year

The most prestigious and expensive cards in every FUT season, Team of the Year collects a squad of the best players from the previous 12 months and gives them an incredible stat boost. TOTY is only reserved for the best of the best, and 99-rated cards aren’t unusual to see.

This has made them some of the rarest and most overpowered players in Ultimate Team history.

Future Stars

FIFA 21 Future Stars Team 2

This one is all about the youngsters who are set to light up the world stage in the years to come.

While their base cards might be unusable because of their age, Future Stars cards are a glimpse at what a starlet may look like if they live up to their full potential.

The likes of Curtis Jones and Ansu Fati were rated in the high 80s and low 90s in FIFA 21, suddenly making them some of the game’s best players.

FUT Birthday

FUT Birthday in FIFA 21
FIFA 21 FUT Hub (In Menus)

Every year, EA celebrates Ultimate Team’s birthday with a festival full of quirky cards, SBCs, and objectives.

This is where FIFA looks back at the fan-favorite players who have dominated previous FUT years and brings them back with big upgrades.

If you’re a long-time player, you’re bound to recognize a lot of these cards.

Team of the Season

FIFA 21 Team of the Season

Possibly the most popular promotion in all of FIFA, Team of the Season rewards the best players from every major league for their displays throughout the real football season.

Every week, a new league of TOTS players are placed in packs with massive upgrades from their normal cards.

There’s also plenty of SBCs and objectives to complete, as well as a fan-voted team to take part in.

FUTTIES

FIFA 21 FUTTIES

While most other promotions are based on real-life football, FUTTIES is a victory lap for the current version of FIFA itself.

Throughout the event, meta players who have been popular throughout the year, like Gabriel Jesus or Ben Yedder, are pitted against each other in fan votes.

The winner is given a heavily upgraded FUTTIES card to help them compete with the hundreds of other special players in everyone’s club.


So there you have it, that was every single promotion and special card we’re expecting to land in FUT this year.

EA may well have some more tricks up their sleeve, so stay tuned on Charlie INTEL for the latest updates.
