It's (almost) official - the FUT Birthday event will be the next promo in the FUT calendar following on from the Fantasy FUT campaign.

The FUT Birthday promo is one of the most exciting in the Ultimate Team season, with some wild and whacky cards introduced each year.

For those of you that are unfamiliar, we're here to fill you in on what the FUT Birthday campaign is all about in FIFA 23 Ultimate Team.

What is FUT Birthday?

FUT Birthday is an annual promo event that celebrates the anniversary of the Ultimate Team game mode being introduced to FIFA.

In celebration of the most popular mode in FIFA, EA always puts a fun twist on proceedings.

Ultimate Team celebrates its 15th birthday this year, so we could see something incredible as FUT hits the mid-teens.

What to expect

Last year, selected FUT Birthday players were given significant stat boosts as well as huge skill moves or weak foot upgrades, turning certain unused items into meta cards.

Real Madrid's Toni Kroos, for example, was given a huge pace upgrade as well as a bump up to five-star skill moves, making him one of the best attacking midfielders in the game.

SENSATIONAL SANCHO - FUT Birthday Sancho was incredible

In FIFA 21, EA handed some of the game's most popular cards crazy position changes and stat boosts to go along with them.

Germany international Leroy Sane was given an insane central-attacking midfield item with a boost to five-star weak foot and four-star skill moves too.

We don't quite know for sure what twist EA will put on the special items this year, but you can be sure that some unique cards will be born as a result.

As the years have gone by more content has naturally been introduced, and now we expect special promo packs, Squad Building Challenges, Objectives and potentially a Team 1 and Team 2 promo squad too.
