FUT Birthday

FUT Birthday is a returning promo, which celebrates the anniversary of FIFA Ultimate Team.

Each year the event sees fan favourite players given enormous boosts, with cards released into packs, new SBCs, and objectives.

The cards released usually have boosts to skill moves and weak foot as well as the regular attributes, so it offers plenty of new and exciting options.

The event will run for two weeks, with Team 1 released on Friday, 4 March, and Team 2 following on Friday, 11 March.

This year we are also getting a Token Swaps system as part of the release.

We are used to Token Swaps from Icon Swaps, and this season EA has brought them into other promos, with Winter Wildcards and Future Stars also using the system to give additional rewards.
