We usually have an inkling of what promos to expect during a season, but this time we have a pretty clear timeline of what is coming our way in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team, thanks to the information provided by EA.


Predicted Promo Schedule:

  • World Cup Path to Glory - Friday, 11 November (confirmed)
  • World Cup Moments - Friday, 25 November
  • World Cup Phenoms - Friday, 2 December
  • Team of the Tournament - Friday, 9 December

Although the names of the promos aren't yet official, there have been plenty of leaks that mirror what EA has announced.

The World Cup Path to Glory will kick things off, with live items that receive progression upgrades throughout the tournament, depending on how that player's team gets on.

Next up will be World Cup Moments, dropping when the knockout stages begin, and it will "celebrate the most impactful moments in the World Cup so far, celebrating key moments from qualification that captivated the world".

As the quarter-finals arrive, so will World Cup Phenoms, which is the vaguest of the promos coming, with EA saying it will "uplift the performances of some of football’s brightest stars".


Then, the Team of the Tournament will promo will come, providing us with some of the best-rated cards in the game.

Amongst all that, there will also be the World Cup Swaps system (similar to Icon Swaps we've had in the past, but with a slight twist), World Cup Player items, and also the introduction of the World Cup FUT Heroes!
