When will the next promo drop in FIFA 21?

With EA having dropped Icon Swaps 2 last Friday, we take a look at which promo is up next in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team.

What If?

A mysterious event looks to be arriving in Ultimate Team this week, and the signs suggest it will be called What If.

This promo could look at players who did not live up to the billing, and could look to what they may have become.

Take a look at our What If predictions.

What is the next promo in FIFA 21?

Here are the promos which could be arriving in FUT 21 at some point in the near future.

Winter Refresh

EA's next promo in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team is likely to be the annual Winter Refresh event.

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.

Other expected promos

In previous years EA has dropped Carniball, Shape Shifters and an extra set of Ones to Watch cards around this time.

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.

The FUT Birthday promo is also expected to arrive around the end of March.

When will the next promo drop in FIFA 21?

We are expecting EA to drop What If this Friday, 26 February, at 6 pm GMT / 1 pm EST or 7:30 pm GMT / 2:30 pm EST.

Judging from previous years, Winter Refresh or Carniball could also be coming soon.
