Is it coming home? It might well be, but for now the Festival of FUTball is coming today.


The FUT community was fearing that FIFA 21 Ultimate Team could die a slow death after the Team of the Season promo - but we have been saved by Festival of FUTball.

EA has revealed a new card type too for the promo, so make sure you know how they work.

Upgrade cards

In the fourth different loading screen so far, EA revealed that some cards will be upgradeable.

The arrows at the top of the card suggested upgrades similar to what we saw in the 'What If' promo.

MOVING ON UP - There will be upgrades in the Festival of FUTball

While Showdown cards may well be on the way too, we now know that these cards will be called 'Path to Glory'.

With players from Europe and South America involved, we can't wait to see who is included in the first batch.


Path to glory

Confirmed. 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.

NEW IN - Path to glory cards should be epic this month

With a maximum of +4 to their OVR, a start rating of 95 OVR could see a new 99-rated card.


  • 3 wins +2 OVR
  • 4 wins +1 OVR
  • 5 wins +1 OVR
  • 6 wins - 5* Skill Moves and Weak Foot


Ahead of the release of the first squad this Friday, we have put together a shortlist of players we think could feature in the new promo.

We think EA could go big on their FIFA ambassadors, meaning the likes of Joao Felix and Phil Foden could star in the event.

HOPES OF A NATION - There is lots of pressure on Foden's young shoulders

Away from EURO 2020, could we see Neymar feature in back-to-back promos having been selected in the Ligue 1 Team of the Season?
