The FUT 23 Pre-Season promo is similar to the FUT 22 and FUT 21 Pre-Season events from FIFA 21 and FIFA 20.

It gives users the opportunity to earn rewards in the current game, as well as in the next instalment.

Many SBCs will be released during the event, and we may even see the return of the repeatable 10 x 85+ Rated Player Pack!
