Season 4 of Ultimate Team has drawn to a close in FIFA 23, making way for everything FUT Season 5, Football Nostalgia, has to offer!

EA has now confirmed that FUT Ballers will kick things off in Season 5 on FUT, and there have been plenty of leaks as to what other promo events will arrive over the coming weeks.

So, check out everything you need to know about FUT Season 5 below, including details on the release date, promo events, and rewards.

Release Date

Season 5 of FIFA 23 Ultimate Team got underway on Thursday, 16 March, and will end on Thursday, 27 April.

The new season went live in FUT at 3am ET / 8am GMT, bringing with it a host of new content that will be available for six weeks.

Storyline Player Picks

Storyline Player Picks have been a staple of each new FUT season for years, but EA has decided to switch things up recently.

In Season 3, no Storyline Player Picks were on offer - instead, they were replaced by rewards.

There were no Player Picks in the Season 4 Storyline either, with the only player reward coming in the form of a Future Stars Folarin Balogun at Level 30.

The rumours are all pointing towards a new promo being introduced to the game following on from the FUT Birthday promo, named 'Trophy Titans'.

We aren't quite sure what the Trophy Titans promo will entail just yet, but we expect it to focus on the game's serial winners and could include special items for Icons and FUT Heroes too.

Then, the annual Silver Stars Series could return to FUT, bringing us plenty of awesome Silver items to enjoy.
