What happens if a FOF player transfers to a different club after their release?

If a Festival of FUTball player transfers or goes on loan during the promo, the item will remain at their previous club until they qualify for an upgrade.

The item will then be updated with the player's new club at the same time as their next upgrade.

If a Path to Glory player transfers then they will also change club when they receive their next upgrade.

Alessandro Florenzi, who is currently on loan at PSG, can be used as an example to illustrate this.

How do Path to Glory cards work?

There will be Path to Glory cards released as part of the event with added skill move and weak foot bonuses too.

While not as straightforward as the Road to the Final cards, the Path to Glory players will follow similar trends to the What If promo.
