FIFA 21 Ultimate Team Next Promo

The Festival of FUTball promo is based on the stars of international tournaments, with it last seen on FIFA 18 for the 2018 World Cup.

A squad was released after each "matchday", followed by a Team of the Tournament combining all the best cards from the promo.

Players could appear in multiple squads - with Luis Suarez picking up 98 and 99-rated cards throughout the event.

With the Euros, Copa America and Concacaf Gold Cup this summer, we could see players from across the globe involved.

Euro 2020

EURO 2020 is the main focus for all football fans this summer!

MISSING OUT - EA has missed the boat for a licensed EURO 2020 mode

While Konami is the official videogame partner of the tournament, EA must produce fresh content around the tournament to avoid serious disappointment among fans.

No EURO 2020 content really would be the end of FIFA 21 Ultimate Team this year, and with the EUROs following on so closely from Team of the Season, it is the perfect time for EA to strike.

Copa America

If EA fails to produce any EURO 2020 content due to licensing issues, then Copa America is the next best option.

South America produces arguably the most exciting and naturally gifted footballers, with many of them among FUT 21’s most popular players.

ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT - Can Messi each 99 OVR this season

A Copa America-themed promo event would need a sensational set of special cards to maintain engagement, especially if EURO 2020 is a no-show.

Other Promos which could arrive soon

Looking back to last year, in the heart of the Coronavirus pandemic, we saw the Summer Heat promo arrive on 17 June - replacing the usual FUTTIES promo, bringing back some of the best cards we'd seen in the game.

FEEL THE HEAT - We expect to see something similar to last year's Summer Heat promo

This, tied with the TOTS cards not being as sky-high as previous years, can feel the community with hope.

In previous years EA has dropped the Carniball and Shape Shifters promos, which we haven't seen. yet.

ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES: FIFA 20's Shape Shifters promo brought us RW Ronaldo

The Carniball promo celebrates eight festivals from eight different countries and is one of the most hotly anticipated events on FIFA.

The Shape Shifters promo involves positions changes and huge stat boosts for certain players.

When will the next promo drop in FIFA 21?

We are expecting the next FIFA 21 promo to drop on Friday, 11 June, at 6pm BST / 1pm EST at the earliest.

There's a chance of a one week break from FUT promos, following the madness of TOTS.
