Winter Refresh promo is right around the corner

With the Winter Refresh arriving soon in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, we take an in-depth look at how the promo actually works in FUT.

How does Winter Refresh work?

The Winter Refresh promo will see the players who have outperformed their basic OVR in FUT 21 receive a special Winter Refresh card.

Players who receive a Winter Refresh card will have their OVR boosted by around 5 OVR ratings, judging off of FIFA 20's promo.

Winter Refresh may also involve giving EA handing out special cards to players who have moved in the January transfer window.

Last year we saw some great cards in the XI, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Bruno Fernandes and Christian Eriksen.

This year, the likes of Liverpool's Turkish centre back Ozan Kabak, Arsenal's Martin Odegaard, Atletico Madrid's Moussa Dembele and youngster Amad Diallo could headline the promo.

FIFA 21 Winter Refresh release date

With EA holding off on the Winter Refresh promo last Friday and dropping Icon Swaps 2 instead, we are expecting a teaser very soon in FUT 21.
